Welcome to the Rollback: a frame-by-frame look back at our past week’s most notable news — and our favorite SRK articles — from September 22 to September 28, 2017!
Zavian “mushin_Z” Sildra, Editor-in-Chief:
d3v goes into great detail about what this new Versus game does right, what it does wrong, and how its design draws from its classic predecessors.
Pikachu smacked Ryu square in the crotch when it comes to sales figures in the UK. While this reflects the respective acceptance of each title by the wider, “casual” market, it makes one wonder as to how much reach each game will have in the FGC.
In this response to fans’ Q&A requests, BornFree lays out what he wants to see for Super Street Fighter V — if such a thing ever comes around.
Sam “Trilby” Foxall, Assistant Editor:
Following Street Fighter V‘s recent content update, X-Kira has been hard at work. His latest findings have found what could be the template for SFV‘s long-awaited Arcade Mode.
As a huge Killer Instinct fan, I’m looking forward to new blood picking the game up, now that it’s on Steam. It’s 25% off during its launch week so now’s the time to give it a go. Fight on!
If you missed it during Tokyo Games Show last week, you can now catch up on Nemo and Fuudo’s exhibition for ARIKA’s still unnamed fighter. I have to say, Fuudo’s Allen Snider is already looking deadly.
Keegan “Interrobang!?” Spindler, Features Editor:
As someone from a somewhat smaller scene, it’s always fascinating to see the spotlight turned on some under-known places. L.E.S has a lot to say about how his own scene is developing, and it’s a great read.
MarkMan isn’t the only sneakerhead in the FGC — at least, Diesel hopes not. These Street Fighter-styled sneakers look fabulous, despite being a bit pricey. The M. Bison pair is my personal favorite.
BlazBlue has brought the hype for years, with top 8 experiences almost always among the most exciting at any given event. Garireo’s victory at CEOtaku is just one more piece of proof, and it’s fun looking back at how it reflects his success at EVO 2014.
Love the new art style or hate it, Capcom Vancouver’s new Puzzle Fighter is officially live — in six selected regions, for now.
