Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition Adds Kage

A brand-new character Kage joins the roster of Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition for Season 4 from December 16.

After the Arcade Edition of fan-favorite fighting game Street Fighter V released for PC and PlayStation 4 earlier this year, developer/publisher Capcom had a great run with it and professional players on many tournaments and fans loved it.

To show appreciation to the community folks, they have created a brand-new character named Kage out of the shadow of Satsui no Hado, the evil force that is rooted inside Akuma and he will join the roster from the very beginning of the next season.

Below is an official trailer that showcased the reveal of the character and some of his gameplay features you can check out in advance.

Initially, Kage may look a lot like Evil Ryu nor is he a revamped skin but he definitely is not and is something very different. When Ryu has rejected to embrace the power of Satsui no Hado, the physical embodiment of it has taken form and become Kage.

Ryu actually has the dark power of Satsui no Hado within him and whenever he lets it take over his persona altogether, he becomes Evil Ryu. When this persona takes over, he is on a path of destruction under the influence of the dark force.

For years, he has been desperately trying to keep it at bay so that it cannot consume him entirely and now has overcome the weight of that power. However, Satsui no Hado decides to chose a path of its own and rises in the form of Kage.

Following his transformation, the character puts up a brutal display of his raw power against opponents like Akuma, Ryu and Sagat, destroying each of them one by one by unleashing his moves on them in battle with ruthless efficiency.

Kage has variation of Hadoken fireballs inspired from both Akuma and Ryu that he can conjure up. He also has the axe kick, Ryusokyaku of Evil Ryu while being able to deliver shoryuken uppercut and a spinning kick to the opponent.

The Critical Arts and V-triggers in him are just two other powerful attack Taigyaku Mudo and Shun Goku Satsu to throw his opponents off balance. The latter is the similar move to the Raging Demon that Akuma uses but is specifically modified for the character here.

Only a month before the release, copies of Kingdom Hearts 3 Xbox One version got leaked and fans are worried about spoilers!

Even though upcoming Kingdom Hearts III from action role-playing game series Kingdom Hearts by developer/publisher Square Enix is a month away from global launch on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, copies of the game has been leaked.

Courtesy of that breach, screenshots and videos of the title are now being leaked into social media after it surfaced on a now-deleted Facebook Marketplace listing. Several YouTubers took it upon them to warn the others of potential spoilers.

Apparently, someone got copies of Xbox One version of the crossover RPG and it was collected from somewhere within disc-printing or distribution flow. As proof, the person shared a video of booting up screen of the game and the main menu.

Many people on social platforms have claimed to know the seller who has a history with illegitimate sales and somehow has gotten 30 copies of the game using a channel to the manufacturing and printing stream in North Carolina.

Game director Tetsuya Nomura of KH3 has taken Twitter to address the fans not to share any spoilers through images and videos after acknowledging the leak.

Blizzard Cancelled Heroes of the Storm eSports 2019

Blizzard axes down Heroes of the Storm eSports events for 2019 and will release less content in the future.

When Riot Games came up League of Legends and Valve with DOTA 2, developer/publisher Blizzard Entertainment responded by creating a multiplayer battle online arena game of their own that we know today as Heroes of the Storm in 2015.

Each year, these two competitor companies arrange international world championship events that attracts millions of viewers, whereas Blizzard literally struggles to get a steady bunch of spectators and now they are cancelling their 2019 eSports events.

Whenever it comes to take part in the world-class gaming events, every other renowned franchise in MOBA games offers massive prize pool for the winners and on that comparison Heroes of the Storm Global Championship (HGC) has very little to offer.

Moreover, the company is moving their resources from development teams away from the game to work on other unnamed projects. Company president J. Allen Brack states this to be a hard decision and also claims that such action has led to new games that they are proud of today.

RELATED: Overwatch’s New Hero Ashe

We do understand that saying such actions in past has brought us some of the biggest games they ever made, is just a desperate attempt to try and convince their fans who are very pissed at them these days due to their recent negligence to what the community really wants.

The step to scale back development of the game is caused by many new and unannounced projects they are currently working on. To help those stand on their feet, they decided to swing talented heads for their years of expertise and skills.

Without going into much deception, they also cleared out that even though they plan on continue supporting the game, fearing players may start outright abandoning the title but the devs will do that with a fewer flow of content release from this point.

The company has obviously choosing other priorities and it led them to cancel two of the major upcoming eSports events for Heroes of the Storm in 2019, HGC and Heroes of the Dorm series. Thanking the fans and players for their support, the official site has echoed somewhat the same dialogues.

RELATED: World of Warcraft: Warbringers: Sylvanas

Ever since we got past the BlizzCon 2018 event, Blizzard Entertainment is slowly revealing their dark side that doesn't know what the fans want from them anymore and is constantly at fan backlash that started with the announcement of Diablo Immortal.

Only a month after that PR disaster, they are slowly cutting off support for Heroes of the Storm now. Blizzard has been taken over by Activision recently and the shareholders clearly want them to pursue projects that drive more money. This way, they will effectively kill popular franchises one by one in time.

Metro Exodus will take players back to post-apocalyptic Russia on February 2019 and released the opening cinematic to celebrate the release.

As a successor of Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light from Metro series of first-person shooter games, Metro Exodus was announced back in June 2017 at E3 2017. Initially, the game scheduled for a fall 2018 release window but then pushed to the first quarter of 2019.

The cinematic opens up in a landscape of a ruined world, long abandoned and everything around covered in the cold of the Earth as a reflecting deep woe-filled background score tries to carry us away in the moment.

Harsh winds blow away snows from many figures on the street, revealing their doomed fate in an unforgiving surrounding. The self-destructive nature of humanity is depicted in a very subtle way and thus, establishing the premise for anyone seasoned or casual.

After cramming down the remaster of both Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light into Metro Redux, the Ukrainian development team has gone into the development phase for the next game and third installment of the series.

Even before the story was adapted into video games, Metro series was a super-hit original novel from author Dmitry Glukhovsky and that popularity has led to the eventual conception of a post-apocalyptic survival horror experience for fans.

Last month, Metro Exodus Spartan Collector's Edition was announced at Xbox X018 Event that is priced $149.99 only and comes with a highly detailed resin statue of protagonist Artyom fending off a deadly Watchman with a bunch of collectible goodies.

Earlier, Deep Silver has delayed the launch date so that 4A Games can have a proper take at the version of Metro Exodus they had in mind and since they have almost wrapped up the project, there is no reason to push back the calendar.

So, 2018 wasn't particularly bad for the commercially successful action-adventure game from developer Insomniac Games and publisher Sony Interactive. Things are going to get better by the end of the month as the third chapter of The City That Never Sleeps DLC series is coming on December 21.

Hearthstone Rastakhan's Rumble Single-Player Mode Rumble Run

Hearthstone adds new single-player mode Rumble Run for their newly released expansion Rastakhan's Rumble.

During the BlizzCon 2018 event, developer/publisher Blizzard Entertainment announced the newest expansion pack Rastakhan's Rumble for their free-to-play online collectible card game Hearthstone, which has now introduced a brand new single-player mode.

Titled Rumble Run, this mode is similar to the single-player content of the game like Dungeon Run and Monster Hunt. It will let you challenge AI opponents into deck-building puzzle and is made available from today, December 13, 2018 for Android and iOS devices, Mac and PC.

Even though the latest expansion came out on December 4, the solo mode waited a few weeks extra to drop in. The game lets players start as young troll Rikkar and pick a Shrine as his faction for the run to defeat champions from other factions in the arena.

You start with a class, 10 Health and with a weak deck to enter for your first match. For defeating a boss, you gain extra 5 Health each time and can gain up to 45 Health by the time the eighth and final boss arrives. Additionally, participants get new cards for each victory to make their deck stronger.

The only setback of losing is that one has to start over and that is only understandable, right? People having the option to choose from different classes and explore the random elements scattered around are the appealing charm that gives it replay value.

Although Rastakhan's Rumble has been receiving mostly positive feedback from fans, some are complaining that the newest set is relatively weaker than the earlier and with modes like Rumble Run, there is always scope for newer cards to shine.

For years now, Hearthstone has been a successful competitive collectible card game title from Blizzard that has millions of the fans engaged since 2014. A several few expansions later, the game is still relevant to the players and the developers continue to pour in contents for them.

Currently, the king of digital card game genre, the title has over 100 million registered players that are making hundreds of millions each year, generating one quarter of the total market revenue alone and such new experiences like Rumble Run will only keep it going.

Image Comics' Spawn May Appear In Mortal Kombat 11

Mortal Kombat 11 is returning to the skull-crushing, blood-soaked glory of the series in 2019 and artist Todd McFarlane hints Spawn might be in it.

After taking a long, hard way from E3 2018 to the nearing end of the year, developer NetherRealm Studios revealed upcoming Mortal Kombat 11 from their decades old fighting game series Mortal Kombat at The Game Awards 2018 event.

The official reveal trailer already gave us the showoff between Raiden and Scorpion. In fact, there might be different versions of them. Recently, veteran comic-book creator Todd McFarlane (Haunt, Venom) hinted that his popular creation Spawn might even join in.

The titular franchise has started its journey back in 1992 and released more than twenty games so far. McFarlane also created Spawn in the same year for Image Comics and it has grown a distinct identity within the comic book community.

Aside from his indie works, he served as an artist for Marvel Comics and during his stint on Spider-Man ongoing series; he co-created a villain character with David Michelinie for the hero named Venom, who became an immensely popular anti-hero.

As he joined the discussion, a member of the social news site asks him if he would let Spawn be in Mortal Kombat 11 and he responded by saying, "I believe he's on his way...", which is the closest we can get as a confirmation at this point.

Previously, the series included popular characters from horror movies like Jason Voorhees, Leatherface, Predator and Xenomorph to the roster. On that note, bringing Spawn on board will not make things weird at all.
