Super Smash Bros. Ultimate to Add Joker from Persona 5

Nintendo took the grand stage of The Game Awards 2018 to showcase a brand-new fighter for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

You might think that by now, you know everything there is to know about the full roster of soon-to-be released crossover fighting game Super Smash Bros. Ultimate because game director Masahiro Sakurai has spilled almost every bean there is know about the title in the last Nintendo Direct.

However, there are more characters coming in post-launch period and a day before release, Nintendo revealed the game's 76th fighter at The Game Awards 2018. Joker from one of last year's best JRPG, Persona 5 will be the first DLC fighter for the game.

A brand-new trailer was dropped to herald the announcement of the new DLC character during The Game Awards 2018.

The Phantom Thief lead character from role-playing Persona 5, developed by Atlus, who usually switch to different codenames and costumes when he and his group members explores various realms of Metaverse to solve crimes, will join the roster of SSBU.

If things woks out well, the rest of his crews from Phantom Thieves of Hearts can also end up joining the brawl, because no one can possibly tell what Sakurai is cooking in his head and when will he unveil those! He might even end up announcing Waluigi to surprise the fans.

Even though players can purchase Joker separately, he also comes as a part of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighter Pass costing $24.99 only. The bundle contains five distinct package comprised of a fighter, a themed-stage and soundtrack.

In the early next year, the first DLC pack will come out for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate following the release of Piranha Plant, a pre-order bonus. Also, SSBU is releasing tomorrow, December 7, for Nintendo Switch. So, happy smashing everyone!

Mortal Kombat 11 Announced

Mortal Kombat 11 is revealed at The Game Awards 2018 and it turns out to be an absolute gore fest between Dark Raiden and Scorpion!

Earlier this year, a Tweet from game director Ed Boon of NetherRealm Studios started speculation that he may have teased upcoming release of Mortal Kombat fighting game series, Mortal Kombat XI and it will be revealed on E3 2018 but never happened anyway.

A few weeks ago from today, voice actor Eduardo Garza blasts his frustration on Twitter for being removed from the project, which may or may not be MKXI but surely is the next installment and everyone believed the title will be announced at The Game Awards 2018.

So, here we are now to witness the world premiere trailer of Mortal Kombat 11 in its gory glory and intensity of the iconic franchise.




RELATED: Mortal Kombat XI May Be Announced at E3 2018

The trailer opens up on a destroyed Courtyard full of charred corpse of monks at night and then two fighters collide in air from both sides out of nowhere. We see Scorpion grabbing Raiden in mid-air and pinning down to the ground before stabbing him with a katana blade.

The God of Thunder stands up to return the favor and impales his opponent with a lightning spear after landing some serious blow of combos. On the background of this extreme beat down, a hip-hop track titled "Immortal" by 21 Savage is playing.

The resurrected ninja then gets up to his feet to apparently stab the Elder God on his face and then delivering his famous spear attack. Raiden fights back by crushing the hard-shell face of his enemy and then blasted his head with a concentrated electric charge.

He turns around to see another version of the undead assassin entering the arena and goes up in flame to fly straight through the protector of Earthrealm. Scorpion then beheaded Dark Raiden and throws his spear into the head, thus finishing him off for a flawless victory.

For curious minds, Raiden going to the dark side is a clear sign that the game picks up from the cliffhanger ending of Mortal Kombat X, where he warned to the new rulers of Netherrealm or to any invaders that he won't be as merciful as everyone knows him to be.

As for the two different iteration of Scorpion appearing, we believe the plot of MK11 either has some twist regarding Multiverse colliding or maybe the characters are going back and forth in time for some still undisclosed reason.

Also, the ending of the trailer shows a glimpse of another female character, whose role in the story is yet to be revealed. Recurring antagonist Shao Kahn is returning to the game as a pre-order bonus character and will join the beta testing phase.

Developers have introduced a Custom Character Variation System that will grant players control to customize the fighters and some familiar face will come back too. A community event will take place on January 17 at 11 AM PST and more details on the title will come out eventually.

Mortal Kombat 11 will be released on April 23, 2019 for Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Previously characters from the game have appeared on Injustice: Gods Among Us and we believe somewhere along the line they may introduce some Injustice 2 characters in a future DLC as well.

For more than decades, the series has been one of the most popular among fighting game genre and features some of the most iconic warriors that ever stepped into an arena. Seeing it all return with a strong follow-up definitely gives us the chills down the spine.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Leaked Before Launch

Only two weeks before the release, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is leaked online and fans can't stand the spoilers!

Although crossover fighting game Super Smash Bros. Ultimate from developer Bandai Namco Studios and publisher Nintendo is still more than a week away from release worldwide on December 7, it's already out online ahead of the launch.

Pirates have somehow gotten their hands on an early copy which they ripped and uploaded online, revealing potential spoilers online for the most hotly anticipated Nintendo Switch title of upcoming holiday season of this year.

A latest release from the Super Smash Bros. series, the title is now Switch's biggest pirated game ever despite all of the effort Nintendo took to hype it up over the months and keeping everything related to the game tightly wrapped.

Though the company is taking actions by issuing takedown notices to various YouTubers who has been uploading videos or music clips from the game, fans are highly concerned over the fact that the spoiling details are still out there.

RELATED: Super Smash Bros. Comes to Nintendo Switch

The community is expressing their utter disgust and outrage on Discord, Reddit, Twitter and other social media for anyone who are about to ruin their experience of SSBU beforehand without any spoiler warnings in advance.

This is very important for the fans of this series as every piece of information they need to know about the game should be coming directly from game director Masahiro Sakurai or Nintendo. Some fans even believe that they shouldn't even know anything at all, which is quite a stretch to be honest.

RELATED: Nintendo Direct Confirms New Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighters

Of course many of the game details like the character roster and stages are something players ought to know at early point because they are great selling points but many elements of the title were still left for the fans to uncover when the game releases.

The pirates didn't stop at revealing stuffs like how and when to unlock certain playable characters or the music tracks; they even went far ahead by leaking many details about the World of Light Adventure mode, something worth a story for SSBU.

RELATED: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Direct November 2018

Report says that, the pirated version of the game first showed up on a popular Switch piracy community WarezNX and even though the group's administrator attempted to stop the leak by banning all lower level users from server but couldn't stop the inevitable.

Parties involved in this piracy might have gotten their hands on an early copy from YouTubers or any journalists reviewing the game, before they leaked it online. Leaking of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate prior release is no mere accident and we guess people at WarezNX may actually know how that happened.

Mortal Kombat XI Revealed by Voice Actor

Anticipating NetherRealm Studios' title Mortal Kombat XI has been revealed ahead of time by former voice actor.

It has been three years since the last installment of legendary fighting game series Mortal Kombat was released back in 2015 as Mortal Kombat X from developer NetherRealm Studios and publisher Warner Bros. but we got no news of a sequel yet.

Neither the studio nor series co-creator Ed Boon has said anything about it but yet the cat might get out of the bag finally as a former voice actor of the project may have revealed Mortal Kombat XI on Twitter recently.

Though there is no official confirmation against or on behalf of this claim, fans of the franchise knows how tight lipped the developers are about their projects. Besides, NetherRealm actually confirmed working on a new game indeed but the title was never disclosed.

Some even rumored for a sequel of the crossover fighting game Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe but Ed Boon himself has shot that claim down. Then it the remaining hints points only toward the development of MKXI.

RELATED: Injustice 2 Scrapped Character Concept Art Revealed

However, a clearly unhappy voice actor Eduardo Garza blasts off all rumors on Mortal Kombat XI over Twitter regarding an issue and revealed that the game is indeed in the making.



RELATED: Injustice 2 Gameplay Trailer Features Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Turns out, MKXI very much exists and is in development Garza who was doing voice-over for Kung Lao and Reptile. He quickly took the social media to express his frustration, when he was removed from the project by Pink Noise and not directly by NetherRealm though.

Garza also worked on Krillin in Dragon Ball and Lucio in Overwatch in the past as dubbing actor. He also clarified later that he didn't know for sure whether it was MKXI, MK10.5 or MKXYZ, because they released Mortal Kombat XL as an extended version of MKX.

RELATED: Justice League Movie Skins For Injustice 2

Back in May 2018, Ed Boon actually dropped a potential tease replying a random Twitter user in response to a query regarding the newest DLC of Injustice 2, which made everyone believe that MKXI most probably be revealed at E3 2018.



RELATED: Injustice 2 Gameplay Trailer Features Darkseid

Boon using the letter "K" instead of "C" had us believe that there was going to be a big reveal at E3 but nothing happened so far! Right now, we are very close to The Game Awards '18, which will kick start on December 7 and would be a perfect stage to announce the game then.

Whenever NetherRealm and Warner Bros. decide to bring back the franchise with Mortal Kombat XI, we expect to see some major gameplay renovation and their micro-transaction mechanics to be fixed. Hopefully they have learned a lot from making Injustice: Gods Among Us and WWE Immortals.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Direct November 2018

The final Nintendo Direct for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate reveals a classic Street Fighter and a Pokemon character added to roster.

For the most ambitious crossover fighting game in video game history ever, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has assembled every fighter in series and more. Bandai Namco and Nintendo will bring this mega-action blockbuster on December 7 for Nintendo Switch.

In the latest reveal of the game, the final roster for the game is unveiled by director Masahiro Sakurai. Months ago, he promised that players will have a look at every character included in this title and now there are a total of 74.

Only a while ago, we knew that Sakurai is going to host the 40-minute long video released today to reveal the remaining characters and more details on the game.

Final Two Characters
A cinematic opens up in a grand fighting arena where Little Mac from Nintendo's Punch-Out series has been punching his opponent to a corner and suddenly gets hit back in the face. His rival is then revealed to be Ken Masters from Street Fighter series.

Turning up the heat of the fight, Ken releases a Hadoken that Lil' Mac barely escapes and from behind the audience a pair of glowing eyes silently observes. He ends the fight with one of his finishing moves, sending his adversary off the ring.

The individual from the shadows now heads towards the ring and leaps from above to land directly on Ken but he moves at the last moment. The challenger with his fiery wrath is now revealed to be Incineroar from the Pokémon franchise.

Avoiding a few moves thrown at him, Incineroar hurls Ken on the ring ropes and throws him in the air to perform a series of wrestling moves on him (much like the ones fellow Street Fighter Zangief would use) before finishing the match by sending Ken flying off.

Joining as an Echo Fighter, Ken is adapted for Ultimate based on the version of his character from Super Street Fighter II Turbo. Despite being fairly similar to Ryu, he appears to be faster in the game and deals damage in varied form than his counterpart.

Ken also has a different shaped Hadoken, tatsumaki senpuukyaku hurricane kick delivers more hits and his fiery heavy shoryuken uppercut can burn his challengers. The spinning Shinryuken and Shippu Jinraikyaku are among two of his final smash attacks.

Hailing from Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon games and the final evolution stage of Litten, Incineroar brings a bunch of pro-wrestling moves for SSBU. This buff cat-wrestler has debuted at number 74, also the last drafted to the brawl.

A creature of fire-based attacks, he specializes in carry out lariats and different suplexes on his rivals in a fight to crush them good. Besides, fire-type Pokémons are known to beat the living crap out of other from their race and he is here to throw his powerful punches.

Few of the long-running norms and rules are changed for SSBU as offering stage selection before choosing your players. Also, several characters that appear as Echo Fighters are not just simple re-skin of another character but their attack damage or speed features are slightly tweaked to make them stand out.

To get your hands on the Ultimate Special Edition at launch that comes in steelbook case, just place your pre-order for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate before December 6. It also comes with a stylish Super Smash Bros. themed Switch Pro controller.

Spirits Mode
You should also know that within the world of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, many characters have become "spirits" upon losing their forms and they will assist the players in fight. There is a huge list of them that you can assign as primary and support spirits.

These spirits will power up the fighters during a match or provide abilities like speed or strength. Mix matching them in certain way to compatible character would earn them extra perks to win a fight against selected opponents.

It is all mouth and teeth mostly lurking beneath warp pipes, will be available on February 2019 for free to those who would pre-order the digital version of the game or just register game card to their Switch devices before January 31, 2019.

These yet-to-be-announced DLC packs can also be yours when they are released if you simply purchase the Fighters Pass for $24.99 only.

New Amiibo
As announced previously, every fighter from Ultimate will have their own amiibo figures and that includes the one from DLC as well. Recently revealed Ken, Incineroar and Piranha Plant are no different from the treatment while some of them are coming shortly.

Alongside the launch of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Inkling, Ridley and Wolf amiibo figures will come out on December 7. By February 15, 2019, players can get their hands on King K. Rool, Ice Climbers and Piranha Plant. Later at some point the same year Isabelle, Pichu, Ken, Young Link will eventually release too.

Story Mode | World of Light




Titled World of Light, the trailer opens up with every character from the game has gathered to collectively face a threat that turns out to be a beam of light which disintegrates everyone's physical form and transformed them into spirits, except Kirby.

Masahiro Sakurai has saved up the story mode of the game for last and boy, what a spectacular blast it was. This new adventure is unlike any other you have seen in the entire franchise so far and delivered an intense twist by revealing at the end.

RELATED: Onimusha: Warlords Re-Release Announced

Although, the ever-expanding roster of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate made many players' dream come true but also some may have expected a much bigger surprise at the end rather than Ken as an echo fighter and newly added Incineroar.

The most saddened part with many was the exclusion of poor Waluigi, who will not even be in Assist Trophy segment. After the characters' utter humiliation at the E3 2018 trailer of the game, Waluigi fans were still rooting for him.

When Sakurai went on saying, "That’s all the fighters you’ll find in the game", he literally hit the last nail in the coffin. With that, any hopes of him popping out as a surprise reveal is gone. Perhaps, we can see him in DLC in future? Maybe!?

The way previous Nintendo Direct has featured so many characters in the beginning, some of us honestly thought, we are getting introduced to more of them but since Ultimate always aimed for bringing back the existing stars of the franchise, they really weren't interested to draft in new fighters.

Soulcalibur 6 Adds 2B from NieR: Automata

The combat android 2B from action RPG NieR: Automata will be joining the fight in Soulcalibur VI very soon.

Even though weapon-based fighting game franchise Soulcalibur has pioneered many other titles to step into the ring, it heavily struggled to stay popular and relevant over time and Soulcalibur VI is trying to bring it back on track by as a reboot to the series.

The game was already in talks for featuring a huge guest appearance of Geralt of Rivia from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and now Bandai Namco Entertainment is planning to bring the android heroine of NieR: Automata, 2B as their next guest fighter.

YoRHa No. 2 Type B will be added to the roster as the second guest character while wielding her signature dual blades. You can already see many of her fighting styles originated from the action role-playing game of Square Enix are adapted into it.

Additionally, she will have a custom costume inspired from NieR's Kaine, a brand-new themed stage, award-winning background music from the original game, spear weapon, extra parts and stickers as shown in the gameplay trailer above.

Since 2B was created to fight against an army of hostile robots that invaded the planet, her fighting capabilities and skills are unquestionable. Aside from acrobatic prowess, she is profound in melee attacks and she intends to continue fighting as long as she can for the glory of mankind.

During combat, 2B will be assisted by her robot companion Pod 042 to perform long distance attacks on her opponents. She is introduced in the game as a complete package because of her unmatched fighting abilities and for a great crossover value.

However, buying the Soulcalibur VI Deluxe Edition for only $89.99 automatically adds her with two other playable characters when they are released.

One of the returning fighters from the series, Tira will join 2B when the season pass finally launches in an undisclosed date in near future. Maybe we get to see Bandai Namco include Cloud Strife from Final Fantasy VII or Kratos from God of War next.

Injustice 2 Scrapped Character Concept Art Revealed

New unused character designs of John Constantine, Krypto the Superdog and Penguin for the game revealed by Injustice 2 concept artist.

Following their immense success with 2013's fighting game Injustice: Gods Among Us, NetherRealm Studios came up with a sequel, Injustice 2 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2017, that even surpassed its predecessor in many aspects.

The game has a roster full of iconic DC Comics characters as playable fighters as well as other heroes like Hellboy from Dark Horse Comics and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles from IDW Publishing. Recently, a number of unused concept arts have revealed a few characters that didn't make it to the final roster.

Shared on ArtStation by senior concept artist Justin Murray, these min-blowing artworks of the characters from Injustice comic books has Batman's protege Bluebird, Detective ChimpEtrigan the DemonJohn Constantine, Krypto the Superdog and Penguin.

During the story arc in comics, they have either sided with The Regime and The Insurgency or chose their own way but there was no apparent reason for excluding them from the game. However, we didn't wait for any official statement and have our own theory on it.

For one, neither Detective Chimp nor Penguin is a competitive fighter who can give other playable characters a tough time. Even occult detective John Constantine is no physical combatant despite him being a highly skilled sorcerer.

Young vigilante hero Bluebird on the other hand could've made it but considering other better-known costumed fighters like Batgirl and Zatanna didn't made it to the sequel, this electrical engineer from Batman comics introduced during the run of Scott Snyder (All-Star Batman – My Own Worst Enemy, Batman – Court of the Owls) had slim chances.

RELATED: Injustice 2 Gameplay Trailer Features Hellboy

Another plausible reason for these characters not to show up in Injustice 2 maybe because many of them ended up dying in the Injustice: Gods Among Us comic-book series, thus their presence in the game could have been tricky for the storyline to connect.

Etrigan The Demon lost his connection to mortal realm when Jason Blood, his human host was killed in a battle against The Regime. Although John Constantine didn't die after his rebellion of magic community took a stand opposing Superman, he simply left the conflict.

The original publisher for the Mortal Kombat series, NetherRealm Studios may strongly consider another sequel to the Injustice franchise and these characters can even show up in that game if they are somehow brought back to the tie-in comic-books.

According to some recent rumor flying around, the studio is already working on a new project and it can either be a new installment for Mortal Kombat or Injustice 3, which we can only tell for sure once we get some more evidence on hand.
