Welcome to the Rollback: a frame-by-frame look back at our past week’s most notable news — and our favorite SRK articles — from March 23 to March 29, 2018!

Zavian “mushin_Z” Sildra, Editor-in-Chief:

Frame 1:
BCF5 TWITCH FEATURE 750x400Body Count Fighting presents BCF5 — new Title & Feature matches in Dragon Ball FighterZ, Street Fighter V, & Tekken 7 — on April 7th

Body Count Fighting keeps the action coming with another big event for early April, now with even more DBFZ. Don’t miss it!

Frame 2:
darkstalkers costume sfv ae menat crop 750x400Darkstalkers premium costumes arriving for Menat, Juri, and Urien in Street Fighter V next week

While the costumes for Menat and Urien are quite impressive, the more popular talking point seems to be how the Lilith costume alters Juri’s prominent… assets. (Ironic, if you remember Abigail’s character story!)

Frame 3:
animevo 2018AnimEVO announces 19 games for this year’s massive Evo 2018 side tournament

With this massive lineup of great titles — and possibly more to come — there’s a side tournament for everyone this year!

Frame 4:
FIVE MINUTE FOCUS feature image 750x400SRK & Frabisaur present 5-MINUTE FOCUS: Using assists in Dragon Ball FighterZ, featuring Tatsunical!

Frabisaur and Tatsunical are here to help you push past your own limits in DBFZ. More videos from these two are soon to follow!

Frame 5:
dissidia_nt_vayneSquare Enix reveals their release schedule for DLC characters in Dissidia Final Fantasy NT

We now know that we’ll be getting a steady stream of new content for Dissidia over the entire year.

Crow_Spaceboy, Assistant Editor:

Frame 1:
Tranquilo! Assen na yo! Namco has a new Tekken 7 x New Japan Pro Wrestling collaboration, featuring Tetsuya Naito

Someone in the comments suggested a future Naito DLC outfit for Devil Jin and giving him a supernatural Destino. I have become a lost soul, unable to think of anything else until this happens.

Frame 2:
sfv karin victory
Victor “Punk” Woodley joins the Echo Fox team

I had suspected there were more details missing from Punk’s departure from Panda Global. And it looks like now we know why!

Frame 3:
Sonic Fox tries out a PlayStation 4 pad prototype that could be much better for fighting game players

I am excited to see how this develops — a better pad will absolutely open up even more players to the genre.

Frame 4:
ELEAGUE’s Street Fighter V 2018 Invitational showcases five nights of action with a $250,000 prize

If ELEAGUE learns from the mistakes of the past (and I could personally do without Richard Lewis on commentary), then there’s no reason for its next season of SFV action to fail.

Frame 5:
New “Rotate Cancel” glitch discovered in JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle

JoJo:ASB came out in 2013, and there’s still new and interesting tech being discovered for it. Editor-in-Chief. Street Fighterin' since there was only a "II" in the title.
