That alternate dress costume shown for Rose is actually a cool reference to Street Fighter Alpha 2

Everyone had their souls overloaded with new Rose information for Street Fighter 5 yesterday in the Spring Update stream, and there's quite a few details we didn't even catch our first time watching.

Capcom revealed one of Rose's alternate costumes to be a more traditional dress that many may have assumed was simply an updated version of the outfit from Street Fighter 4, but it goes back much further to the fortune teller's second appearance ever.

Marvel vs. Capcom 2 is one of Capcom's most legendary fighting games. Its competitive legacy is a staple in the fighting game community, and to this day MvC2 remains one of the most popular and highly revered fighting games of all time.

Street Fighter: The Movie was never planned to be Street Fighter 3 while the film itself originally centered around Ryu and Ken, not Van Damme's Guile

Street Fighter: The Movie may have started as a smart idea on paper to combine the film and video games together, but of course it ended up being perhaps the strangest venture Capcom attempted in the '90s that is still remembered infamously among fans of the series.

Polygon recently released a new entry in their great oral history of Street Fighter series with the latest tackling the movie tie-in to give a glimpse of what development was like behind the scenes for both America and Japan as well as addressing some long-standing rumors about the project.

This ridiculously cool Capcom vs. SNK statue is being made by one super dedicated fan and makes me sad that I'll never get to buy it

The hobby / community of fans creating their own highly-detailed statues and figurines for their favorite video games and anime is one that's been growing in Japan for many years now, and many of them could pass for official works โ€” or ones we wish were official.

This round-stealing Shuma-Gorath glitch from Marvel Super Heroes is maddening enough to end friendships

The year was 1995 and the first installment in Capcom's Versus series, Marvel Super Heroes, dropped and offered players the chance to assume control of characters that would eventually become much more popular. The game was intriguing and would set the stage for an iconic branch of the gaming genre, but the standards for fighting games were... very, very different than those of today.

Shuma-Gorath was one of the title's 10 selectable characters, and was equipped with a variety of rush down attacks and command grabs. Characters in Marvel Super Heroes would gain access to the Infinity Stones during play, and if Shuma paired a few of his moves with the Time Stone, he could actually cause a glitch that would render his foe helpless across rounds.

What fighting game would you return to if it had good rollback netcode?

The push by the fighting game community to bring rollback netcode to the forefront of the attention of developers took years to reach where we are now with widespread adoption and acceptance, but that also leaves many titles potentially forever stuck in a place with sub-optimal netplay โ€” even some of the most beloved titles around.

With Arc System Works now looking into bringing upgraded online to its older titles and SNK attempting to make their own for The King of Fighters 15, there's been a wider discussion brewing within the FGC as to what game's players would like to return to if they had rollback netcode now.

Dan strikes a pose for his Street Fighter 5 release, Chun and Guile mirror kicks, and Rose doesn't need a nose to look good in Michael Firman's art

We shared some art from Michael Firman just about a week back, but already he's churned out a good handful more pieces and we've been able to put together yet another fighting game gallery of his stellar work.

Firman's unique style almost comes across as a clash of various approaches happening all at once, but as different as some of the pieces are from one another, they all seem to subtly fit perfectly so we can appreciate whole images without being distracted at all.

The Street Fighter movie finally receives the Honest Trailer treatment it deserves

When you think about it, the 1994 Street Fighter film kinda paved the way for things like the modern Marvel movies with an ensemble cast, "witty one-liners," and explosive action. It's just that most of it wasn't very good.

As shocking as it seems that it didn't happen already, Screen Junkies have finally put together an Honest Trailer for Capcom's big blockbuster bet, but was it worth the wait?
