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 24 to August 30, 2018!
Zavian “mushin_Z” Sildra, Editor-in-Chief:
First Street Fighter V gets a “President of the World”, now SoulCalibur VI gets the “Leader of Humanity”…? But it’s about time we got a look at second original fighter for SCVI — and possibly the game’s final boss?
I really, really, really hope this is the last time we ever have to put up an article about a mass shooting at a gaming venue. Ever. This should not be a thing that happens.
The King of Fighters XIV and its classic cousin The King of Fighters ’98 are still going strong! There’d better be a 2019 circuit!
This crazy game is finally here, complete with forest cats, swole Shovel Knights, and bound Isaacs aplenty. Are you playing it? I hope you’re playing it.
This guy was supposed to lead the Fight for the Future. Boot up the 30th Anniversary Collection and give him a try.
Crow_Spaceboy, Assistant Editor:
Speaking bluntly, I forgot Million Arthur even exists, so this crossover is really baffling to me. MA must be huge in Japan.
I think this guy is my favorite fighting game character of 2018. Balrog dash punches and Birdie throw/item gimmicks. And he’s a buff cactus frog alien.
Despite many of my fears of SCVI, Zas coming back is excellent & Hayate is one of the sharpest minds to play the Calibur series, so this is worth a view for that alone.
Congrats, Joey. This man is a pillar of American Tekken as far as I’m concerned. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
