Welcome to the Rollback: a frame-by-frame look back at our past week’s most notable news–and our favorite SRK articles–from April 14 to April 20, 2017!
Zavian “mushin_Z” Sildra, Editor-in-Chief:
Crow_Spaceboy continues examining how to use–and fight against–different stances in Tekken 7, this time focusing on series mainstay Paul Phoenix.
The Final Fantasy series’ classic dragon summon is set to appear in the arcade arena fighter, and you can see how powerful it’ll be in battle in this preview video.
Many different players took up the challenge and pushed Street Fighter V characters to their limits, to see what it takes to bring an opponent to stun as quickly as possible. A great look at what different fighters are really capable of!
Sam “Trilby” Foxall, Assistant Editor:
Along with the previously-revealed school costumes for Juri, Ryu, and Chun-Li, Street Fighter V is going back to Bison’s old stomping grounds with the return of Street Fighter II’s Thailand stage. I wonder if we’ll see Sagat looking on wistfully in the background.
Showing off what the world warriors do to make a living, Capcom has announced yet more costumes for Street Fighter V. With Alex fighting fires, Chun-Li working the 9 to 5, and R. Mika leading the cheer squad, it’d be nice to see what other characters do for a day job.
With Persona-mania taking the world by storm with the recent release of Persona 5, Atlus seem to be preparing for future Persona 5 spin-offs by registering some tentative domain names. Among the names is P5U–which could hint at Persona 5 Ultimax.
Keegan “Interrobang!?” Spindler, Features Editor:
As a huge fan of arcade sticks in all shapes and forms, it warms my heart to see attempts at making them work in a Smash game. Alt Labs have taken a different approach to the SmashBox and B0XX controllers, and I’m excited to see how it plays out.
Who doesn’t love a new fighting game to play? UNIeL has been a fixture in the anime fighter scene for the last few years, and the updated version is finally heading out of the arcades and into our home consoles.
Although those of us in the West have to wait a bit longer to get our hands on Baiken, it’s always fun to get a glimpse of how she works. This is a brilliant breakdown of what we can expect when we finally get hands on Guilty Gear’s most famous samurai.
Looks like we’ll be waiting a while longer to see the new Capcom Fighters Network and the next balance patch for Street Fighter V–hopefully not too much longer.
