6th Topanga League results

Updated: This story has been updated with final results.

After a long hiatus, it's finally time for the Topanga League once more. But since we're moving to a new game - Street Fighter 5 - there's no A League set in stone yet, so instead of the two different tiers of leagues, we're going straight in with 3 different groups of top-level players all fighting to advance to the final stage.

Each group plays a online round-robin among the 7 participants, with the 1st placer of each group moving to the finals stage, and the 2-5 placers in each group moving to new, 4-man groups where they play a offline round robin, and the victor of that group moves to the finals stage, now housing 6 players total, which will also be played offline.

Another new feature this year is that the event is free of charge - you can check out the stream over at Topanga's OpenRec channel or their English channel here.

You can find the stream and all of the group information below.

Shin Hisako revealed for Killer Instinct, available in March

Killer Instinct will be adding yet another new version to one of their existing characters as Shin Hisako has been revealed via a teaser trailer.

The naginata wielding ghost fighter now appears to have a katana, a weapon she used in life while training in the ways of the Samurai. The teaser includes the following bit of text as a small clue to the new character's story:

"The moment she clutched the two-handed sword the Guardian dwelling inside the blade called out her new name..."

Killer Instinct developer Adam "Keits" Heart noted on his Twitter page, "All I can tell you about Shinsako is that she is much more straightforward to play than Hisako, but still has some interesting wrinkles," he also stated, "The next KI character after Kilgore and Shin "Chiharu" Hisako will not be a remix. 100% new."

One of Tekken's most recognizable faces has made his way into the franchise's seventh numbered installment as Capoeira fighter Eddy Gordo was revealed earlier today.

A staple of the series since Tekken 3, Eddy rose to fame amongst casual players because of his relative ease to play. This often meant button mashing at an arcade cabinet while Eddy performed ridiculously cool sequences from his unique Capoeira style.

He'll be joining the cast of Tekken 7: Fated Retribution upon release on June 2, 2017. Here are some screen shots, and you'll catch the full trailer below.

Over $600,000 on the line and no more auto-qualification spots for Premier events - here are the Capcom Pro Tour 2017 details

Capcom has officially spilled the beans on this year's Pro Tour. In a Capcom Unity blog post released this morning, we were provided the full run down on what to expect from the 2017 tournament season.

The stakes are raised for Street Fighter 5 competitors this year as over $600,000 is on the line. This is $100,000 more than last year, and the increase comes courtesy of Twitch.

But a larger prize pot isn't the only change we'll be seeing in 2017. The way in which players qualify for the Capcom Cup -- the 32-player, end-of-the-year finals event to conclude the tournament season -- has been revamped.

"This year, we wanted the qualification process to be much easier to follow for both players and fans alike," the blog post states. "We want the focus of the Capcom Pro Tour to be on our amazing community of players and incredible matches rather than complex rule sets and qualification processes."

With that in mind, Capcom has done away with auto-qualifying spots for Premier events. Instead, Capcom Cup spots will be determined by the points earned from placing at Capcom Pro Tour events.

The official Street Fighter Twitter account has just revealed when we can expect to see Street Fighter 5 Season 2's next DLC character. Tomorrow is the big day, folks.

This reveal will come along with the debut of a track off of Lupe Fiasco's upcoming album, DROGAS Light, which is set to drop on February 10th.

For the first time, we see an in-game shot of the next DLC character's icy powers. This seems to fall in line with alleged leak that claims Helen (Kolin) is headed to Street Fighter 5 next and will come equipped with a V-Trigger that freezes the floor and the opponent if it makes contact.

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 comes out on top in the Make-A-Wish Foundation EVO 2017 charity drive, awaiting final word from EVO staff

The Make-A-Wish Foundation EVO 2017 charity drive to determine the player's choice game has concluded. At this time, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 has raised the most money totaling

It was a very close race that came down to the wire. Pokken Tournament and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 were neck-and-neck throughout the entirety of the donation drive, and the end result was a close one.

At this time, we are waiting on confirmation from the EVO staff whether or not UMvC3 will secure the 9th spot on the event's line up. Though the game raised the most money, all of the numbers will likely have to be tallied and potential false donations may need to be weeded out.

To see how much money each game raised, be sure to hit the jump.

Black Canary revealed for Injustice 2 - featuring game play within trailer

Black Canary has just been revealed via IGN's YouTube channel. After the jump, you'll be able to see Black Canary's trailer featuring some of her game play.

As expected, she hosts attacks that feature her screaming like a loud siren at her opponents in order to inflict damage upon them. Interestingly enough, she appears to have a lot of grapples.

It appears as though her Super attack can be triggered while in the air. Whether she is only able to trigger it in the air or is capable of using it while on the ground is currently unknown.

During the first Injustice game, we only saw a picture of Black Canary that Green Arrow (from the other universe/reality) was admiring. Injustice 2 will let us play as Black Canary.
