In addition to solving the mystery of Genbu Nash, these player-exclusive costumes are a sweet reward for competitors to show off. I would still like to see them offered as DLC in the future, after a suitable period of exclusivity for the Master League winner to enjoy.
With every new update, this game looks more and more interesting. We still need that one last big announcement, though: when will we be able to play this on our own consoles, Square Enix?
It’s been a while since I threw down with a solid CCG; I’m very interested to see if Jasco’s UFS take on Street Fighter can deliver something that does justice to the source material, while capturing the “feel” of the video game’s battles. Hopefully we’ll see more info from Jasco soon.
In response to the initial reports of the Panthera’s input latency, this firmware update shaves that lag way down, possibly positioning this fight stick as the stick of choice for the serious competitor.

While it seems normal to us now, the pairing of Marvel and Capcom characters does sound like an odd pairing. To explain the history of this now legendary team-up, SSFF looks at the history of character licensing between Marvel and Capcom.
Whip it good KOF players, as K’s older sister Whip joins the fray as The King of Fighters XIV’s first DLC fighter. You won’t have long to wait to crack that whip, with Whip releasing on April 5th.
One of the hardest-working men in the FGC has now joined Twitch, with Rick “TheHadou” Thiher helping to build the FGC’s visibility on the huge streaming platform. Don’t worry folks, he’ll still be working to run events like CEO, Evo, and Combo Breaker.
While acting as the showcase for the world’s best KI players, Killer Instinct World Cup will host a whole bunch of fighters, both old and new. Plus, you’ll want to tune in for the Shin Hisako gameplay reveal, along with possible other hints about KI’s future.
