Panda Global’s Ryan “Filipino Champ” Ramirez, Jonathan “Rico Suave” Deleon, Reynald Tacsuan of Arcade Shock, and John “Argenrost” Martin come from various fighting game backgrounds, but all of them have one thing in common: they are previous Evo champions, with knowledge of what it takes to perform under the harsh spotlight of a high-level stage. If you’ve been curious about Rising Thunder but haven’t taken the opportunity to try it out, this should be the perfect time to see what the game looks like in the hands of competent players.
UPDATE – Rico Suave has announced that he will not be able to attend SoCal Regionals. There is currently no word as to how that will affect this competition.
This event is scheduled to take place Friday, October 9, around 8 PM PDT, 11 PM EDT. It will be broadcast live on Twitch, so be sure to tune in if you can’t make it to the event in person.

During a quick interview at Madrid Games Week, Bandai Namco Games Iberica marketing director David Fraile provided an interesting comment regarding Tekken 7’s future.
As the latest installment of their lead fighting game franchise, Bandai Namco made sure to have Tekken 7 cabinets available on the show floor for attendees to try for themselves, and Fraile made mention of these stations, saying that the title will be launching in 2016.
A curious thing to say about a game that’s technically already available, right? This opens up two possibilities: one, Tekken 7 will be heading to Europe as an arcade title, or two, the 3D fighter will finally appear on consoles sometime next year. The second seems more likely, as least to me personally, but feel free to let us know what you think of these new details in the comments.

While Chris’ screen control from the Morrigan/Doom pairing makes even the simple task of existing a chore, Takumi shows that he’s not only able to weather the barrage of projectiles through impressive movement and contesting with Magnetic Disruptors, but that he can bring plenty of nasty tactics of his own.
For a full play-by-play breakdown of the set, check out the video below.
And if you liked Persia’s analysis, you’ll not want to miss tonight’s episode of Marvel LIVE. You can catch the podcast at 6 PM PDT, 9 PM EDT on Twitch.

Many Smashers in Korea aren’t native to the country, but instead expatriates who brought their love for the series from their home nations. Due to the lack of an official Korean release, players have to import consoles from Japan in order to play, but the community has fortunately found a venue to grow in Arcade Stream.
For some more background, be sure to check out the quick video below.

With that in mind, Ortiz walks us through her journey through the world of fighting games, from her time as a kid at Golfland USA alongside her father and cousin to her successes in Capcom vs. SNK 2, and more recently her current training regimen.
Ortiz also speaks on how she feels Street Fighter V has changed from its early iterations, turning into something that, thanks to the recent build at Twitch Con, she seems more than excited to play. And, since we’re always curious what characters top players have in their sights as main material, Dezmu brings up the issue, which Ortiz meets with a handful of names: R. Mika, Chun-Li, and the recently leaked Laura, indicating that a decision is far from made.
Ortiz will be attending TCEG Con in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada this weekend to compete with some of the locals, as well as other invited players like teammate Justin Wong, so be on the look out.
As you’ll see below, folks like John “SweetJohnnyCage” Gallagher, Joe “LI Joe” Ciaramelli, and Seth Killian join the conversation, touching on their personal histories and how arcades shaped today’s fighting game community.
While a release date has yet to be set in stone, Martinez is hoping to drop his film sometime this winter. Stay tuned for more details.
