Welcome to the Rollback: a frame-by-frame look back at our past week’s most notable news — and our favorite SRK articles — from August 3 to August 9, 2018!
Zavian “mushin_Z” Sildra, Editor-in-Chief:
Not totally unexpected additions (though Seong Mi-Na is a bit of a twist), but it looks like SoulCalibur VI is well on its way to a roster full of the classics. Just a few more to go.
Lei and Anna? About time! But Negan? As in “The Walking Dead” Negan? If you thought Noctis was from out of left field, this new bit of corporate crossover shenanigans is from another ballpark altogether.
Capcom tried their best to win Evo in terms of reveals by pulling the classic (and crowd-pleasing) “out tomorrow!” maneuver. Well-played, especially since both fighters are impressive additions to the roster. Honorable mention: the hype-building campaign for G was also very impressive!

Nintendo saved their Super Smash Bros. Ultimate reveals for their own Nintendo Direct in the typical Nintendo fashion — and they know they can hold their own audience with this kind of content to show off! “Ultimate” is accurate.
Crow_Spaceboy, Assistant Editor:
Smug is, now and forever, one of the best and most entertaining spokesmen for the FGC.
Cooler is exactly that. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
I experienced some severe emotional whiplash when I saw that Daigo considered himself a “slow learner”.
