The SRK Rollback: Best of July 6-12, 2018

By on July 13, 2018 at 10:00 am

Welcome to the Rollback: a frame-by-frame look back at our past week’s most notable news — and our favorite SRK articles — from June 29 to July 5, 2018!

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

Frame 1:
Rumors: Street Fighter V’s Season 4 roster may include C. Viper, Makoto, Q, Sodom, and others, according to DasVergeben

Likely? Probably not. I refuse to believe they’ll leave E. Honda pruning up in the bath for another season.

Frame 2:
Rinoa Heartilly Dissidia Final Fantasy NT
Rinoa Heartilly from Final Fantasy VIII takes flight in Dissidia Final Fantasy NT

Somehow, though there were many possible picks for a latter-half FF female addition, I expected it would be Squall’s sweetheart joining the roster. Glad to see Angelo is along to help, too.

Frame 3:
Shoryuken review: Fighting EX Layer is light on content but offers deep and exciting gameplay

This game is a gem, even if it may still be a bit in-the-rough. Go get it. Go play it!

Frame 4:
sfv ae cody knife ready
Composer Daniel Lindholm talks about his work on the themes for Ed, Cody, Zeku, and Sakura in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition

I’m a big fan of the new tunes that have been coming to SFVAE, and Zeku’s theme is a contender for my favorite SF character theme… period.

Frame 5:

There’s only one week left to register for Evo 2018!

Still haven’t signed up…?! The clock is ticking, better act now and register before you miss out.

Crow_Spaceboy, Assistant Editor:

Frame 1:
NewChallenger shows off the juggle possibilities in Capcom’s forgotten gem — Plasma Sword: Nightmare of Bilstein

What I would do to see a modern day sequel for this wild game.

Frame 2:
3rd-person arena fighter “Override: Mech City Brawl” announced for Steam, PlayStation 4, & Xbox One, releasing on December 4th

I feel like we’ve reached a point where 3rd person arena fighters could have their own major, if someone just stepped up and organized it.

Frame 3:
Vulcano Rosso, Pullum Purna, and arcade mode are coming to Fighting EX Layer for free

Back off. V. Rosso is mine, and mine to play alone.

Frame 4:
evo 2018 nissin cygames 750x400
Evo partners with Nissin Cup Noodles for Evo 2018

Never in my lifetime did I think this would happen, much less twice.

Frame 5:
soulcalibur vi scvi sc6 story trailer logo 750x400
SoulCalibur VI will have a side tournament at Evo 2018

Casual reminder: Tekken got to be at Evo before the game came out in the US two years in a row.
