In the afternoon before each show, we’ll tweet out a specific hashtag on the Street Fighter or Capcom Fighters Twitter account. All you need to do is use that hashtag in a tweet of your own before the drawing begins at around 8:15 PM PT. During the show, we’ll randomly choose winners and announce them on-stream. After the show, expect a Direct Message from the Street Fighter or Capcom Fighters accounts with your code. The codes are currently only for North America.

If you’re an artist or cosplayer, tweet @StreetFighter with pictures of your creation and we just might feature it on the stream with all credit going towards you!

Team Reptile shares first footage of Lethal League Blaze’s online gameplay

Lethal League Blaze, the sequel to 2014’s surprise sports-fighter hybrid hit Lethal League, is just around the corner. If there was any concern about the style or speed of Lethal League carrying over to 3D, developers Team Reptile just laid those fears to rest in the simplest way possible: letting the game speak for itself in the hands of the community:

If you’ve followed Lethal League competitive play at all, you’ll recognize the player names of Saxxy and Nobody from various events. In addition to being an excellent demonstration of the PC version’s online play, this is also a first competitive look at new characters Nitro and Doombox — the later of which was the original Lethal League‘s end boss.

Lethal League Blaze will arrive on the Steam platform on October 24th, and on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch in Spring 2019.

GameSpot Versus regulars show off their chops in the 3-on-3 team format in Super Street Fighter II Turbo

GameSpot Versus is notorious for running East vs. West style tournaments, where two large teams battle it out in Super Street Fighter II Turbo. Their previous event took a slight deviation from that norm, where they instead offered the same high-level play in a 3-on-3 team format with a single-elimination bracket.

With the myriad of players and characters on offer at the tournament, there is no doubt many things to see and learn from their play, and the level of intensity with every match is nothing short of spectacular.

2018 Tekken World Tour Online Event results for Asia, Europe, and New Zealand

After completing five tournaments for North America, Latin America, and Australia, the online phase of the 2018 Tekken World Tour moved into its second and final week, with a quintet of events for East Asia (which boasted 22 players), Southeast Asia (which drew 39 entrants), Europe West (with a staggering 218 fighters), Europe East (with 58 attendees), and New Zealand (which attracted 28 warriors). As with before, these events awarded the same amount of points as an offline Challenger Event for the top 16, so a top performance was crucial to rise up the leaderboards as the December Finals draw near. There was unfortunately no official stream for these battles, though some particular wars may be preserved in the Twitch archives of select players, as steaming your own matches personally was encouraged.

Complete your collection of Devil May Cry and Ghosts N’ Goblins Crossover Costumes in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition

You’ve got another shot to go demon hunting!

Big news for anyone still looking to acquire the Devil May Cry and Ghosts N’ Goblins Crossover Costumes in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition. While the third piece of Mech Zangief’s robotic attire is still currently up for grabs, with the final Gem available next week, Capcom has announced that once his Challenges are finished, the next wave of Extra Battles will see the return of previously-available Costumes for players who may have missed them.

Much like they did with Ken, R. Mika, and Ibuki’s Monster Hunter Armors, Capcom will be allowing players a second chance to add Dante Ken, Nero Ed, Gloria Laura, Sir Arthur Ryu, and Astaroth M. Bison, to their respective fighter’s wardrobes. Not only are they are allowing players to gain any of the four Gems they may have originally missed, they are also being sold–presumably along with the Level 1 Theme from Super Ghouls N’ Ghosts Crossover BGM– in a bundle that will be available on both PSN and Steam this Friday, October 19th. Though no price point was divulged, the Monster Hunter Crossover Costume Bundle will set you back $9.99, so that could be a good indication of its cost. You can see the announcement Tweet from Capcom below.

Are you excited to get a second chance at some of these Extra Battle Costumes, or will you be saving your Fight Money and grabbing the Bundle? Let us know your plans in the Comments below.

The Soul Edge and SoulCalibur swords come to life in this “Man at Arms: Reforged” video

The Soul swords are said to manifest their shape based on the spirit and personality of their wielders, but at a cost… Thankfully, creating Soul Edge and SoulCalibur, the evil sword and its good counterpart, is just like bread and butter for the Man at Arms: Reforged blacksmiths. Having made Link’s Master Sword and many other blades known throughout pop culture, the team is commissioned by Bandai Namco to step onto the Stage of History.

Soul Edge is so large, it can’t even fit on the drawing board! Though its size is impressive, the sleek SoulCalibur, used by Xianghua, also provides a challenge. It’s made of two separate swords that need to be joined together. The end piece is also a decorative undertaking, as it’s a multi-faced statue. Soul Edge, on the other hand, needs to have an eye made, and the pieces meld together to hold a firm structure.

Kayane appears in the video, lending some game lore to the process, talking about the backstory of the blades. In the end, the power of these swords turns out pretty difficult to wield… for mere mortals, anyway.

SoulCalibur VI releases this week, on October 19th, on Steam, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

Undamned aims to make CPS2 board suicides a thing of the past with InfiniKey-CPS2

Keep your arcade classics alive with this amazing brain transplant!

As we have discussed before, one of the pitfalls of owning CPS2 arcade boards is the fact that these boards are prone to hardware failure, typically by losing their decryption keys when the battery on them dies. This requires a delicate surgery of replacing the batteries once a year at least. Further adding to the stress of maintenance is the fact that if you don’t change the battery quickly enough during the process, it can lead to the same catastrophic failure that occurs if the battery dies on its own.

Those days of having to do routine maintenance may be a thing of the past. Taking what was learned from reverse-engineering the encryption methods on the CPS2, arcade board and supergun enthusiast Undamned has created a circuit board designed to be installed on CPS2 boards to ensure that the board will continue to boot even if the battery dies. The board — which he has dubbed the InfiniKey-CPS2 — injects the necessary decryption keys into the CPS2 board when the board is powered up, allowing you continued usage of your favorite arcade classics, such as Super Street Fighter II Turbo.

While he has yet to announce a widespread release of the board, one would expect anyone with a CPS2 board will be incredibly eager to grab it when it is released!

TEST YOUR MIGHT

A testament to the level of depth in your favorite title is whether it will be played with any level of seriousness when it gets replaced on the circuit. With three NetherRealm titles proceeding it — Injustice: Gods Among Us, Mortal Kombat X, and Injustice 2 — the fact that Mortal Kombat 9 still sees play shows that it is a title that stands the test of time.

At Thunderstruck in Mexico, two of the current best in the title sat down to play a long, high-level set against each other. Between ETC McFly’s Kung Lao and Under the Mayo’s Quan Chi, we see a neck-and-neck battle of amazing reads, setups, and spacing that show Mortal Kombat 9 at its purest competitive form.
