The fighting game community is prepping for EVO 2019 this coming weekend, but last-minute preparations were interrupted this afternoon when the Street Fighter 5 EVO reveal was leaked via the Steam Store.

We now know that E. Honda, Poison, and Lucia are en route to SF5 and will be arriving this Sunday, Aug 4. Catalyst and I had already finished recording this week's episode at that point but jumped back on to record a hot take concerning the newly revealed content.

Will these new fighters be enough to satiate fans after these nearly eight months of radio silence? What does this say about the potential long and short term future of the future of SF5? There's a lot to take in and process, but

We also welcome our main tournament coverage team member, MajinTenshinhan, back for yet another guest appearance to discuss speculations and expectations for this huge FGC weekend.

What might we see from the red-hot Tekken 7? What should we expect from the currently lukewarm Dragon Ball FighterZ, the game that was most popular at EVO last year? Majin helps us cover all of this plus more involving Samurai Shodown and Mortal Kombat 11.

Capcom's Street Fighter League is preparing to kick off its second season but hit a rather unfortunate snag during the final hours of the community voting phase over the weekend. We address this snafu as well as Filipino Champ's surprising Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite devkit stream and more here in episode 62.

When you're done checking us out here, head on over to r/SF Radio and keep your FGC podcast combo going.
