Welcome to the Rollback: a frame-by-frame look back at our past week’s most notable news — and our favorite SRK articles — from June 7 to June 14, 2018!
Zavian “mushin_Z” Sildra, Editor-in-Chief:
E3 2018 opened for the FGC with this announcement straight out of left field: a new DOA with refined gameplay and style adjustments (read: less jiggly) to appeal to a broader audience of serious fighting gamers. This could be big. Catch up on details from E3 on this upcoming title here.
I love this compilation, but it definitely needs some fixes, particularly to the online side of the experience. Could “improvements” include new content, too…?
Next announcement: this arena brawler featuring Deku, his idol, and his enemies now has a release window. October’s gonna be busy…
We saw this pitch coming, but Nintendo knocked it right out of the park for Smash fans; with gameplay tweaks alongside a massive roster of every playable Smash fighter from every prior game — including publisher-crossovers like Cloud, Ryu, Sonic, and Solid Snake! — this game looks like it really deserves the “Ultimate” moniker.
The other game that’ll eat into our October time will be SCVI; Bandai Namco is also pushing this title out right before Canada Cup 2018 — which may well become the first major for it.
Crow_Spaceboy, Assistant Editor:
Pretty much ready for this game to come out yesterday.
Pretty much my favorite story is “Major Tournament supports game out of love”.
I laughed so much that my soul left my body when this came across my desk.
I don’t like “Kill la Kill” and I’m not really a Arc Sys guy, but I love a good mystery.
I am always down to watch Mikado Arcade and/or World Heroes 2 tournaments.
