Street Fighter: Resurrection Coming March 2016

The same team that brought us the magnificent Street Fighter: Assassins Fist, is bring us a new chapter in the Street Fighter saga.

The trailer gives us a look at Guile’s long time best buddy, Charlie. This is the new version of Charlie though, the same version featured in Street Fighter V. Judging from the title of the series, we could possibly get a good look into what exactly happened to Charlie. It’s perfect timing considering Street Fighter V comes out in February.

Here is the trailer:

Street Fighter V Beta Gets a New Playable Update


The SFV beta was updated last night and includes a portion of story mode material as well as a tutorial mode.

The story/tutorial mode takes place way back in the Alpha days when Ryu and Ken were training with Gouken. Ryu and Ken are even sporting their classic Street Fighter Alpha costumes. The best part is that this mode is live right now in the Street Fighter V beta! So go play it right now!

This is a very neat surprise on Capcom’s part. I’m very interested to see what else they might do between now and February. You can check out a video of the story mode below as well.

Street Fighter V Gets a Release Date. Dhalsim Also Revealed.


The fire breathing Yoga master is back.

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.

Street Fighter V Beta Part Deux is Live!

The Street Fighter V beta has returned for its second of 3 betas before the final release of the game in Spring 2016. The beta will run October 21st-25th and will include cross play between PS4 and PC players. The PS4 version is live now, but the PC version won’t go online until the 23rd.

The roster in beta 2 include: Ken, Necalli, Vega, and R. Mika. Newcomer Rashid and Karin will be added on the 23rd. Capcom will be testing out ranked matchmaking, leaderboards, and player profile search. The in game currency, Fight Money, has been included too. As you play and earn more Fight Money, you can unlock different items such as one of the new stages included in the beta.

Capcom, and I as well, want to remind you that this is in fact a beta so there will be bugs and disconnects will happen. I have already gotten a little bit of time in with Vega. The beta does seems to run a lot smoother than last time. I played in training mode for about 15 minutes until I was ultimately disconnected.

Vega Returns in Street Fighter V


“Let my beauty intoxicate you.”

The Spanish ninja makes his return to the series. Vega is one of the 8 original world warriors and seems deadlier than ever.

Vega looks to play differently, yet the same, this time around. The Flying Barcelona, his signature move, is still part of his move set, but he seems so much more stylish this time around. He is a matador and with his play style in SFV, Capcom seems to have really captured the elegance and grace of a matador with the spins Vega does during his combos. Just because he moves so smoothly, doesn’t mean the Spaniard isn’t just as deadly. He can be seen throwing a barrage of claw slashes during his deadly combos in the video below.

With the latest edition of Vega, that brings the current roster up to 9 characters. It’s to see you back Vega.
