Masahiro Sakurai highlights the full-sized, completed Super Smash Bros. Ultimate mural and more at gaming venue

It's hard not to appreciate the monumental effort that went into the development of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. By the end of the game's DLC development, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's roster was expanded to 86 characters — 89 if you count the Pokémon Trainer (Squirtle, Ivysaur, and Charizard) and Pyra & Mythra all separately.

Needless to say, it ended up being quite the task for Yusuke Nakano, illustrator for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, to create that famous mural. While attending a certain gaming venue, Masahiro Sakurai recently had an opportunity to once again view that special mural in all its glory.

Update: Tekken 8 Producer feels it's 'unfair' how capable the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X are compared to PC for the price

Updated on September 23, 2022: Katsuhiro Harada clarified on Twitter that he didn't actually use the strong word "unfair" in the IGN interview. "For someone like me (hobbyist of PC builds), I just said, 'PS5 & XBOXSX have a good balance between price & performance (darn!)'" wrote Harada on Twitter.

The fighting game community has seen an unprecedented push to play primarily on PC in just the past 3 years, but the vast majority of players in general are going to stick with consoles for the foreseeable future.

'You're telling us now?' - Tekken 8's confusing Evo teaser apparently did not go according to plan at all

Although the world now knows that Tekken 8 exists and is on the way, fans were much more confused last month when the first teaser appeared.

Funny fan-made comic depicts what Tekken 8's reality will be thanks to costume customizations

Tekken 8 was officially announced not too long ago. Even for gamers that aren't normally impressed by graphics, Tekken 8 is more beautiful than we could've possibly imagined.

However, a hilarious comic released by Javier Vidal reminds us of Tekken 7's ridiculously silly customization options for character costumes. Needless to say, the impact of the scene we saw during the recent Tekken 8 trailer changes dramatically with these customization options in place.

Harada on Tekken 8: All the models and everything from Tekken 7 have been totally discarded

In an IGN interview, Bandai Namco Entertainment general manager Katsuhiro Harada sheds a little more light on Bandai Namco's exciting new project, noting that the graphics and character models that have all our jaws on the floor weren't improved-upon ports from Tekken 7, but rather built from the ground up.

All gameplay portions of Tekken 8's new trailer compared side-by-side with Tekken 7

Fighting game fans were completely blindsided yesterday as a surprise reveal for Tekken 8 aired during Sony's State of Play presentation. Though the masses caught a glimpse at some kind of upcoming project during Evo 2022 weekend, confirmation that the eighth game in the main series didn't happen until just yesterday, and fans are liking what they're seeing so far.

The new trailer showed footage that was rendered in-game and mixed actual gameplay portions with more dynamic and cinematic scenes to depict Kazuya and Jin slugging it out. These new visuals are outstanding, but how does the series' current title, Tekken 7, stack up? MELOO put together a video that shows a side-by-side comparison of the two so that you can determine for yourself.
