Welcome to the Rollback: a frame-by-frame look back at our past week’s most notable news — and our favorite SRK articles — from December 14 to December 20, 2018!


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

Frame 1:
Kage Street Fighter V 11Kage is the first new character for Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition’s fourth season and is available now

Basically, this is how you put Evil Ryu in a game whose main storyline is about Ryu getting over all this Satsui no Hado stuff.

Frame 2:
sfv sakura exuberant youth shouken
The patch notes for Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition’s latest patch are now available

The Season 4 changes are extensive, but only time will tell if they are actually balanced.

Frame 3:
Isabelle Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Reveal Resized
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate glitch allows Isabelle to fill the screen with assist trophies

My favorite kind of glitch: ridiculously funny in action.

Frame 4:
risingup_intro
Rising Up: Season 4 — Important changes for Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, Cammy, and Nash

Bafael breaks down the Season 4 changes visually, so you don’t have to wonder about what they actually amount to in-game. The first batch of the SFV cast is here, with more to come.

Frame 5:
override mech city brawl key visual cleanOverride: Mech City Brawl is an ambitious and exciting robot brawler, but may need a few tune-ups

It’s a joy to see that games like this are still being made.


Crow_Spaceboy, Assistant Editor:

Frame 1:
MK9-Roster
PNDK&M document the competitive meta and history of Mortal Kombat 9 in 45+ minute retrospective

If you haven’t played Mortal Kombat from a competitive standpoint and want to get into Mortal Kombat 11, this video is required viewing.

Frame 2:
Cassandra-Amy-SCVI
Cassandra Alexandra and Amy Sorel rumored to be the next two DLC characters in the SoulCalibur VI Season Pass

Here’s a casual reminder that Lizardman is sitting there, in the game, nearly finished. But you can’t play as him.

Frame 3:
sfv_arcade_edition_ae_loading_screen_logo_750x400
There are no plans for a Season Pass for Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition in 2019

They… they got it right last season. It’s like they want to be wrong.

Frame 4:
inkling
ZeRo demonstrates fundamental movement options for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Its never too late to learn from one of the greats.

Frame 5:
granblue_fantasy_versus_katalina
Arc System Works’s next fighting game is Granblue Fantasy Versus for PlayStation 4

It looks as gorgeous as any Arc System Works game typically does, and the gameplay sounds interesting. I just wish it was any other series.
