Welcome to the Rollback: a frame-by-frame look back at our past week’s most notable news — and our favorite SRK articles — from November 16 to November 22, 2018!


Zavian “mushin_Z” Sildra, Editor-in-Chief:

Frame 1:
red bull conquest & capcom pro tour banner
RED BULL CONQUEST Finals results & Capcom Pro Tour North American Regional Finals results

The last big CPT bash in North America didn’t disappoint, especially with CJ Truth letting the world know that he’s a player to watch going forward!

Frame 2:
sfv cody holiday costume santa with a knife
Holiday costumes for Blanka, Cody, Falke, and Sakura are coming soon to Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition

Cody Holiday outfit = a knife-wielding Santa Claus. Count me in.

Frame 3:
capcom cup 2018 tokido feature
Capcom Cup 2018 Analysis: Will Tokido finally hoist the cup?

Missing Person kicks off this year’s round of analysis pieces on the Capcom Cup contenders with the #1 Street Fighter V player in the world, Tokido.

Frame 4:

X-Kira’s latest round of datamining reveals more Resident Evil Crossover Costumes, playable NPCs coming to Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition

X-Kira is on a streak of correct predictions based on datamined finds, making these reveals very likely to be coming to SFV soon.

Frame 5:
sfv_chun-li_show_you_my_kung-fu
See the impact of Street Fighter’s Chun-Li on the video game industry in this Just Frame video

Her legacy in gaming is great indeed, and this brief video tribute is a worthy nod to the Strongest Woman in the World.

Frame 1:

Equinox Gaming signs European Tekken 7 Josie pro Adnan “Blackbeard” Zaman

Blackbeard’s single tournament point spike was one of my favorite moments of TWT 2017.

Frame 2:
2o2fmakai
Registration is open for Ohio’s “Makai World Cup 2019 x 2 Old 2 Furious” tournament on March 23-24, 2019

Grassroots FGC at its finest here. Go to it, watch it, do something to support this great collaboration. 

Frame 3:
blade_arcus_rebellion_from_shining_famitsu
“Blade Arcus Rebellion from Shining” announced for PlayStation 4 and Switch

It irritates me that Blade Arcus is getting a sequel when Studio Saizensen could just… continue to support Blade Strangers

Frame 4:
Soulcalibur-VI_2018_06-12-18_012
SoulCalibur VI sales trail behind II’s & IV’s; Game figures 6th on October’s best-selling list

I doubt it’ll ever outsell SCII, but I’d like to see it move past IV eventually.

Frame 5:
gamerschoiceawards
TastyJam & UltraChen nominated for Gamers’ Choice Awards as fan-favorite caster duos

I wanted to mention that Scar and Toph, smash commentators, were also nominated and should be equally congratulated. Whoops.
