I present to you Eddienput. It's an experimental program by Nirgoren and Novriltataki that allows players to create combos, setups and mixups to test against their own play or share with each other. Currently in public beta form.

EDIT: This thread has reached 100 pages! Hell yeah!
Street Fighter's Ryu and Chun-Li are the latest additions to the Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid roster. Ryu is titled as the Crimson Hawk Ranger and Chun-Li is titled as the Blue Phoenix Ranger. This trailer mostly focuses on Ryu, though. 

Here's some context for those who are confused: Back in 2018, it was revealed that Ryu would become a ranger in the Power Rangers: Legacy Wars mobile game. Chun-Li joined him in 2019. This is a continuation of that crossover.
Shermie has been revealed for The King of Fighters XV! First Yashiro and now Shermie. It's only a matter of time until they reveal Chris.

There were SO many people expecting Botan. Now those people are like: "HUH?!"

Q: "wait, who is Botan and why were people expecting that character" A: Botan is an NPC and a menber of Those from the Past, the main group of villains in the Ash saga. Her main ability is to control people like puppets (quite literally). As for why people were expecting her? Well, it was thanks to this teaser on Twitter.

The silhouette kind of looks like her.
Everyone talks about Marvel vs. Capcom, Capcom vs. SNK, Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, ect. But remenber Sammy vs. Capcom? Sammy as in "Sammy Corporation", not Samus Aran, LOL.

It was announced at the the 2003 JAMMA arcade show and nothing came out of it.

The playlist:

Tanzong did a recap of the KOF XIV manga.

The manga is not necessarily canon in its entirety, but it has a potential influence on the games.

“The manga’s story does not become the story of KOF XIV straightaway. However I believe that the manga’s concept significantly should bring a huge influence to our game” - Oda

There are clear liberties taken, like how Igniz’s soul is trapped inside of Verse in XIV while in the manga he is an AI. But there are plenty of things that may or may not carry over to the games. Think of how DMC1’s light novel had a lot of things used for the main canon but dropped plot points that wouldn’t fit like Gilver.

As for why Tanzong skipped XIII? Because he uploaded the series out of order already. The first one he did was KOF '99.
Here is Rose's trailer! Remenber, Rose is coming to SFV tomorrow.

Rose's nostalgia costume is based on her look during Dimitri's midnight bliss in Capcom Fighting Evolution/Capcom Fighting Jam.

EDIT: No trench coat costume from Menat's arcade ending? Aaawww Sad

I wonder how much Soul Calibur VI has sold as of 2021.
So, Rose character story just teased an apocaliptic event of some sorts. Rose also talks about how it's too late to stop said event and that the answer lies in the past. Overall, her dialogue heavily implied that she might pull a Raiden move and go in the past to warn her past self of danger. In other words, an MK9 style reboot.

From the looks of it, Capcom will do anything in order to NOT move past SF3 Third Strike in the timeline.

There are people who claim that the Street Fighter series needs a reboot more than MK ever did, because there are so many conflicting details and retcons over the years. I somewhat get where they are coming from, but still, there are other ways to this. If Capcom really wants to fix or clarify certain events of the past then just do a timeline of sorts like the one in StrIVe. There were so many interesting story elements introduced in SFV, are we seriously letting all that go to waste?

So far, it seems most people reject this idea, and I agree. I'm a little tired of prequels and going back to the past. It's time to move foward. To move past Third Strike.

Speaking of Mortal Kombat 9 (2011), I just want to say happy 10th anniversary to that game!

You know how Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown can be played as a minigame in Yakuza 6 and Yakuza 7: Like a Dragon? Well, turns out the version used wasn't the arcade version, but rather the console port for the Xbox 360.
This Justin Wong video, tho.

From the video description:

I try my best Daigo Umehara impression and learn how to execute his famous parry. And I'll tell you it's a lot harder than it looked. I have no idea how he did it with all the pressure in that moment!

Tomorrow, the reveal trailer for HIBIKI TAKANE, the 2nd SAMURAI SHODOWN Season Pass 3 DLC character will go live, so please look forward to it!

This delay makes sense to me. One trailer would probably overshadow the other and they wouldn't want that to happen.

The next Skullgirls character is going to be revealed on May 6.

According to the Season 1 Pass roadmap, only Annie of the Stars and the second character will be released within 2021. We'll have to wait until 2022 for the third and fourth DLC challengers.

Chris has been revealed for The King of Fighters XIV! The band is officially back togheter, now under the name Team Orochi! Surprised they are called Team Orochi instead of Team CYS or Team Heavenly Kings.

They brought back the special intros! This game looks better and better with each new trailer!
