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 17 to August 23, 2018!

There are so many great titles here, this is the perfect opportunity to see older games you are nostalgic for (or maybe aren’t familiar with!) and less-mainstream titles that don’t get as bright a spotlight being played at high-level — as well as get a look at some upcoming games. Check it out!
And it’s not like the big-stage titles are about to disappoint, either. If you missed them live, catch up on these matches here.

Knee’s victory with Lili in grand finals is absolutely legendary. Please seek out his matches if you haven’t already.
Brawlout is extremely not my thing, but I’m glad they are successful enough to still snag properties like this.
