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 31 to September 6, 2018!
Zavian “mushin_Z” Sildra, Editor-in-Chief:
If half of the stuff X-Kira has dug up here actually makes it into the game proper, SFV will be a very different game in future seasons!
The Switch is a great platform for offbeat indie fighters like this, and I’ve been looking forward to this port. It’s downloadable now.
SO. MANY. CHANGES. And the “mostly buffs” promise tastes a tad bitter when you see your favorite move on your main get nerfed anyway!
No need to wait for official reveals when an event gets a build that’s a ways ahead of the marketing schedule!
Along with the balance changes above, Tekken 7 has kicked off a new season with new DLC characters to mix things up. The Season Pass is available now.
Crow_Spaceboy, Assistant Editor:
Absolutely, 100% in love with this character design. Between him and Doombox, I’m ready for LLB.
Eliza’s super just won’t behave, will it? A new season in Tekken 7 and a new way for Eliza to break the rules.
As far as I’m concerned, Final Round is an institution in the FGC, so I’m happy it’s back. Final Round 2017 was one of the best tournaments I’ve ever been to.
I have an incredible amount of respect for French Bread. They have a clear and unique design philosophy and found a way to strike out beyond the niche indie circle their product seemed confined to.
I will never not marvel at top players saying they don’t use training mode. Blows my mind, every time.
