Welcome to the Rollback: a frame-by-frame look back at our past week’s most notable news — and our favorite SRK articles — from September 7 to September 13, 2018!
Zavian “mushin_Z” Sildra, Editor-in-Chief:
Lazybones2020 offers up a closer look at this amazing little oddity of a crossover fighter, and why it’s worth your attention in the current swath of available fighting games.
SNK shocked and delighted the FGC with the announcement of a new Samurai Shodown, coming in 2019. And it looks really promising. Will it stay true to the series’ methodical gameplay, or will this update cater to a different audience…?
A great discussion of the blurry line between homage and rip-off, and what gamers respond positively to when new titles spin out of prior concepts.
Bandai Namco gets the official confirmation out of the way (with an impressive trailer!), after the accidental reveal at Melbourne. They sure seem to have trouble keeping SoulCalibur characters under wraps!
The new SamSho’s art style raised a lot of speculation about the developer, that seems to have proved unfounded. This is either encouraging or discouraging news, depending on your opinion of SNK’s last two releases.
Crow_Spaceboy, Assistant Editor:
I am surprised at how quickly this is coming out. Outside of that one concern, the Lethal League series is exceedingly good at the niche they’ve carved for themselves, and I’m excited to see how this new entry works.
The speed of which Namco has responded to Tekken 7 bugs has been impressive, to say the least.
Really excited to see how this develops. Boggles my mind that there’s so few fully realized Mugen indie games in the world.
I genuinely don’t understand who has the rights to Breaker’s, and why they haven’t made a Breaker’s III.
If they don’t reveal Raphael here I will lose my mind.
