Welcome to the Rollback: a frame-by-frame look back at our past week’s most notable news — and our favorite SRK articles — from July 13 to July 19, 2018!

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

Frame 1:
Dragon Ball FighterZ getting base form Goku and Vegeta, Switch open beta in early August

Expected-in-advance (thanks to leaks) but still controversial DLC fighter additions for a game that already has multiple forms of Goku and Vegeta. Especially Goku.

Frame 2:
footsies_android“Footsies” fighting mini-game is now available for Android

Now, if we can get an iOS version, no one will have any excuse to not learn how to play a real neutral game.

Frame 3:
WNF-x-ESA-Oakland-Title-3-1024x776Wednesday Night Fights x ESA Oakland debuts tonight with Street Fighter V, Dragon Ball FighterZ, BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle, Tekken 7, and more

WNF has expanded, so make sure you check out all the action from the many games they featured!

Frame 4:
3rd strike logo basicStreet Fighter III: 3rd Strike tutorial — Ken bread-and-butter combo guide & general notes

Bafael continues his guide to 3rd Strike, now delving into whom might be the most popular character in the game (that isn’t Chun-Li)!

Frame 5:
snk heroines burst
See the game’s customization features showcased in this new trailer for SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy

The fan-service in this game is so blatant and over-the-top that it somehow trancends crassness and becomes sublime.

Crow_Spaceboy, Assistant Editor:

Frame 1:
Ryu morphs into a Power Ranger in new reveal for Power Rangers: Legacy Wars

Look me in the eyes and tell me that I’m wrong: Power Rangers is the perfect IP for a new console fighter.

Frame 2:
A Japanese player modded a Mikado arcade cabinet to use console pads

Coincidentally, if you happen to live in the Austin, TX area, Arcade UFO also has controller ports on its cabs!

Frame 3:
Under Night In-Birth Exe Late(st) promo UNIST
Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[st] is coming to Steam on August 20th, 2018

Honestly, everyone should give this game a try. It’s one of the best-made fighters I have played in a while.

Frame 4:
neo geo world tour logo

NEO GEO World Tour 2018 shares SNK highlights from Kuwait Battle Royale

I deeply wish the NEO GEO World Tour had been advertised better, because this is a project of love I suspect a lot of people would be into had they known about it.

Frame 5:
Japanese Tekken 7: Fated Retribution major MASTERCUP 10 returning on October 20th, 2018

So, here’s what I’m watching on October 20th.
