Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden on 3DS just came out, but already there is news that the game will be receiving some free content in the near future.
The news was revealed in the latest issue of Japanese magazine V-Jump, where it was revealed that the game would be getting extra online battles. Details regarding whether or not the content will be making it to North America have not been confirmed, but due to Dragon Ball Z’s popularity in the states there’s a good chance it will.
Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden is available exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS and is currently retailing for $29.99.
Street Fighter V already has one successful beta under its belt, but that isn’t stopping Capcom from scheduling another one to make sure this thing is in fighting shape. The second beta is coming at the end of this month and will feature cross-platform play between PlayStation 4 and PC users.
Accompanying the new cross-platform battles will be new characters, ranked matchmaking, combined leaderboards, player search and the ability to use your earned fight money to unlock new content within the game.
The beta will begin on October 22nd and will contain Ken, Necalli, Vega and R. Mika as playable characters. The next day on October 23rd Rashid will be joining the fray and then on October 24th Karin will be unlocked. The fighters from the previous beta will not be included this time.
The Street Fighter V beta will run from October 22nd to October 25th and will be available to play simultaneously on both PlayStation 4 and PC. The full game is slated to ship in Q1 2016.
Guilty Gear Xrd: Sign is getting an update (like damn-near every fighting game does) in the form of Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator. The game is being developed, once again, by Arc System Works and will launch for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 next year.
What this update brings to the table over the original is new fighters Jam Kuradoberi, Johnny Sfondi and a newcomer named Jack-O. Nothing spectacular, but hardcore fans will be sure to eat it up like they always do!
Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator will be launching in the Spring of next year in Japan, though a release window for the US has not been revealed yet.
Man, we’re hearing about a lot of collector’s editions today, aren’t we? Capcom has just announced what they have planned for the release of Street Fighter V, which certainly isn’t as lavish as the other collector’s editions for today but is still pretty sweet.
The collector’s edition for Street Fighter V comes with the game (duh), a 10-inch Ryu statue, a 48-page hardcover art book and code cards for bonus content. This bonus content includes digital comics, a soundtrack sampler and a one-month subscription to the Capcom Fighters Twitch channel.
Of course, there are also pre-order bonuses going around, which includes a bearded Ryu at GameStop, a covert ops Cammie at Best Buy, a sinister Bison costume at Amazon and a black dress for Chun-Li when purchased digitally. You just gotta love when the devs make deals to ensure that there is no way in hell that a person can get all of the content available, don’y ya?
Street Fighter V will launch in the Spring of 2016 for the PlayStation 4 and PC.
Street Fighter V is set to have four brand new characters in the game’s roster at launch, the first of which was revealed at EVO 2015.
The character’s name is Necalli, and according to the PlayStation Blog he has a mysterious background and features a brutal and animalistic fighting style. Here’s a snippet from the PlayStation Blog:
“There’s no finesse here as all of his attacks have been forged through the heat of battle to inflict maximum pain upon his opponents. However, beneath the surface of the crazed warrior lies a hidden genius that is unleashed upon V-Trigger activation.”
Check out a trailer and a few more images showing of Necalli below.
It was revealed recently that Tekken 7 will be a part of this year’s EVO tournament, despite the game still not having a release outside of Japan.
However, the Tekken Facebook page has just announced releases for the arcade game in select arcades across the USA. Better late than never, I suppose, though it seems kind of weird that gamers won’t be able to practice before competing in the tournament.
Scroll down for the list of arcades that Tekken 7 will be making a trip to soon.
