EA Sports UFC (and Bruce Lee!) joins EA Access on December 18

Damn. Started my last post about EA Access by admitting I keep forgetting the service exists, so it'd be poor form to do that again despite my continued forgetfulness. And now I've muddied this post by calling attention to th...

Yesterday, Tekken 7 revealed a new character with cat ears and a Japanese pop idol aesthetic designed by Fire Emblem: Awakening and No More Heroes character artist Yusuke Kozaki. Our own Destructoid's...

Nya! Good god, Tekken 7's Lucky Chloe is anime as hell

I have a strong urge to get very, very good at Tekken 7 and just piss off (mostly western) players by beating them endlessly with this stupid cat girl.

Two new characters revealed for indie brawler Rivals of Aether

I am a little surprised that we have not yet properly talked about Rivals of Aether on Destructoid. Aside from a brief mention among dozens of other games, we have not looked at the 2D pixel art Smash Bros.-like fighting gam...

Ultra Street Fighter IV strikes PS4 next spring

Ultra Street Fighter IV is coming to PlayStation 4, Sony announced today at its PlayStation Experience keynote in Las Vegas, Nevada. Capcom's fighting game will debut exclusively on PS4 sometime next spring. Xbox One might be getting it at a later date. Or never. Who knows? In other, more exciting news, Street Fighter V is coming to PS4 and PC. Get hype!

Smash Bros. may continue without creator Masahiro Sakurai

Street Fighter V teaser trailer leaked, planned to be a PS4/PC exclusive photo
Street Fighter V teaser trailer leaked, planned to be a PS4/PC exclusive
by Jonathan Holmes

There is a big PlayStation event happening this weekend, and as is customary for big events in this industry, we have been granted a nice pre-event leak to chew on. Unlike the big Smash Bros. leak from earlier this year, this one seems to have come from the publisher itself. Capcom posted this teaser trailer on its YouTube page a few hours ago, and has since taken it down. Oops! I'm guessing it will be putting it back up again in the next 72 hours or so, hopefully with a little more info on what Street Fighter V will have to offer. 

It doesn't look like Street Fighter V will be that different from its predecessor, at least where graphics are concerned. Ryu and Chun Li look a lot like they did in Street Fighter IV but with less exaggerated features and a little more detail in their character models. With diminished visual wow-factor, its status as a PS4 and PC exclusive, and "Street Fighter IV update fatigue" plaguing less competitive fans of the series, I'm already a little worried that the game may not drum up as much excitement as Street Fighter IV did all those years ago. 

Then again, EVO is bigger than ever, and the PS4 and PC are the easiest consoles to stream from. Maybe Street Fighter V will surpass Street Fighter IV's popularity through those means. I sure hope so. After Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike, the series went into hibernation for almost ten years. Those were sad times. Hopefully Street Fighter V will prevent them from returning.

Dead or Alive 5 headed to PC but it won't have online at launch

It's great to see a series like Dead or Alive finally come to PC. Less great, however, is that "Online modes for Dead or Alive 5 Last Round will be added in a patch within three months of release." I suppose it comes down to ...

Take a cue from Mario Tennis to pick a Smash Bros. main

Newcomers to Smash Bros. might find the Wii U version to be a bit daunting. There are almost fifty characters, most considerably different from one another. Even seasoned Smash players have wildly differing opinions whe...

Which Smash Bros. character do you think is the most competitive?

I've been spending a lot of time with Rosalina in Smash Bros. I've been interested in her before the game was released as I like the character quite a bit, and Luma sweetened the deal. After an extended amount of play, I...
