Those that have been waiting for a “game of the year” version of Mortal Kombat X will not have to wait much longer.
The Mortal Kombat XL edition includes all skins, characters, kombos, x-rays, and fatalities from Kombat packs 1 and 2. The price of the XL edition is yet to be announced, but if you preorder now you get the Cosplay Pack that features Cassie Cage and Jacqui Briggs as Sub Zero and Scorpion.
Mortal Kombat XL is set to release March 1st in North America and March 4th in Europe for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One digitally and in stores. PC players seem to be out of luck at the moment as it is not mentioned in the trailer at all.
Warner Bros. has released the gameplay trailer for the next batch of characters featured in Kombat Pack 2.
Characters included are Leatherface (Texas Chainsaw Massacre), Xenomorph (Alien), Bo Rai Cho (drunken fist master) and Tri-Borg (combination of Cyrax, Sektor, and Robot Smoke). The video also details some of the other content included in Kombat Pack 2 such as Goro, new apocalyptic skin themes for Takeda, D’Vorah, and Erron Black and:
Brazil Pack – The Brazil Pack features three new character skins: Futbol Cage, Capoeira Liu Kang, and Gaucho Kung Lao.
Kold War Pack – The Kold War Pack includes three new character skins: Motherland Sonya, Tundra Sub-Zero, and Revolution Kano.
Kold War Scorpion – Kold War-themed Scorpion character skin.
At Sony’s Paris Games Week conference today, Street Fighter V was shown off with a new video, a new character reveal featuring Dhalsim, and given a new release date of February 16th 2016. A bit earlier than the place holder of March 2016. The earlier the better I say.
Dhalsim looks older in this game sporting a white beard. He also wears a turbine, but he still has the tattooed markings on his skin, the skull necklace, and the yellow shorts. Check out the video below to see how he plays. There are also some screenshots of Dhalsim after the jump.
After much speculation that he could possibly not be in the game, Ken was officially revealed today at the San Diego Comic Con. A reveal trailer was shown during the Street Fighter V panel and was met with great praise.
Ken looks a bit different this time around sporting a new hairdo and an exposed compression shirt under his martial arts gi. His moves look just as fast as ever with some devastating combos and a spinning kick that hearken back to his Marvel Vs. Capcom days. After watching the trailer, I can already image the number of Kens i will run into during online play. Check out the reveal trailer below.
Capcom has released a new video about Street Fighter V today and it explains the new V-Gauge and V-Skill mechanic.
According to the latest issue of ShortList.com‘s gaming magazine, as you take damage during a match the V-Gauge fills. Using some of your V-Gauge, you can do special moves like the double fireball Chun-li throws in previous videos.
We’ve also learned about the new V-SKill mechanic. This is more of a defensive mechanic that allows certain characters to parry, deflect projectiles.
Special moves have also gotten a name change. Called Ultras in SFIV, in SFV they are called Critical Arts. These special moves are activated by a full EX gauge and are still the flashy, dynamic camera, multi-hit combo moves that we all know and love.
Last but not least, 2 new stages are now known: China and London’s King Cross Station. King’s Cross Station can be seen in a flurry of beautiful new screen shots after the jump.
Sony has released the first update for USF4 today after it’s rocky start last week. According to the patch notes, the menu lag, Guile’s invisible Sonic Boom, Decapre’s teleport glitch, and more have been fixed.
Something that wasn’t mentioned, apparently, is the increase in input lag. Reported last week by Display Lag, the input lag had been increased by 2 frames when being compared to the lackluster PS3 version.
Other Ocean had promised they fixed the latency issue, but with last weeks release that was determined as false. This patch is a start, but I really hope that they are continuing to fix this game to deter upset fans over such a lousy port. Evo pulling this version from its upcoming competition wasn’t good for them either.
Another apple has fallen from the Mishima family tree and made her way into the latest King of the Iron Fist Tournament. Kazumi, Heihachi’s wife, is the latest addition and she is a tiger summoning fighting machine.
She will be available in Japanese arcades next week. There is still no information on the PS4/XB1 release yet, but hopefully we will find out more when E3 rolls around in June. Check out the trailer below.
Well it’s really too common of a story these days. Almost every game that comes out has some kind of issue of some sort. Players are reporting some lag in offline game modes, net code issues online, menu lag and sound bugs.
From my initial impression, I haven’t had any problems really. I’ve definitely noticed the laggy menus. The only sound bug I’ve noticed is the announcer didn’t say the name of the winner after I defeated my friend. I’ve had a little bit of online lag mainly due to the opponents connection, but every other match I’ve played has been great.
Other that those troubles, the gameplay runs just fine. The game feels fantastic at 1080p 60fps. The color and textures look great as well with the graphical upgrade of being on PS4.
As of now, there is no update on a new patch for the game, but hopefully there is one sooner that later. Like before Evo, maybe?
Good news for us Street Fighter fans! Fans that played on PS3 won’t have to ditch their PS3 fight sticks. You will be able to use that same fight stick on the PS4 without missing a beat. Lab Zero, of Skullgirls fame, has partnered with Sony to create the drivers for this to be possible.
Ultra Street Fighter IV exclusively hits the PlayStation store on Tuesday the 26th.
M. Bison is back and looks better and older than ever. His design has changed up a bit, but nothing too drastic. He looks to still have his signature red suit on that he has dawned since SFII with the addition of a trench coat for a bit of flair. (woo!) Something that really stands out is the fact that Bison is going gray. It looks like this game will in fact take place after Street Fighter 3.
It looks like Capcom has retained all of Bison’s unique move set that he is known for, such as the psycho crusher and the head stomp. He also has some new moves, that can be seen in the trailer, like a projectile shot. It looks a lot different from his projectile shot in the Alpha series.
There is a lot more to see in the reveal trailer below. Check it out
We can expect Street Fighter V to arrive March of 2016 only on PS4 and PC.
