Swinging her green bo staff, this deadly warrior enters the arena as an undead Revenant and in her first fight against Baraka, she goes all out on the Tarkatan tribe war chief by beating the living hell out of him with her attack moves.

Then she stabbed down his spine and slashed his throat before sticking a knife on his head. In time for performing a fatality, Jade impales Baraka with her bo staff through his bloody head, popping his left eye out and then cutting his lower body apart.

She shows almost the same ruthlessness against Skarlet and Sonya Blade on two different matches by crushing their bones and ripping them apart. A great deal of her moves comes from her iconic staff weapon with occasional use of blades every now and then.

After appearing in Mortal Kombat II as a hidden fighter, Jade eventually became playable in Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 and almost instantly became a fan-favorite. In 2011 reboot of Mortal Kombat, her character was killed off in story mode.

However, she is resurrected by an evil sorcerer and now back from the dead to fight once again. Her arrival may also be a heralding the return of Kitana and Mileena to the franchise as well, because many character slots are still empty.

Although she was not present in Mortal Kombat X except for a cameo, developer Netherrealm decided to bring Jade back for Mortal Kombat 11 to complete their ambitious roster. Hopefully, fans were delighted to see her coming back only months before the title releases.

Persona 5 R Revealed

Developer Atlus reveals Persona 5 R as their next project for 2019 but says nothing about a Nintendo Switch version.

At The Game Awards 2018, immediately after the announcement of the Joker of role-playing game Persona 5 being added to crossover fighting game Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, fans coming theorizing that the game may see a Nintendo Switch version release.

Then developer/publisher Atlus proceeded registrations for P5R.jp domain to fan the flame until Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai took a trip to their HQ. Right before stepping into 2019, they teased for a new project in works.

Just have a look at this recently dropped trailer on YouTube by the company which doesn't tell much other than playing over the mystery of what comes next.

Yup, that's it. Nothing much but a date for next year following the PlayStation logo over its iconic blue screen and then comes the line "Take Your Heart" a on a red background with a voiceover before revealing the date to be just March 2019.

Aside from clearly hinting that they are working on something, the developers didn't say much for now and chose to keep everyone in the dark. The trailer also confirmed that the domain that was registered earlier is activated and belong to this new project now.

However, the meaning behind that "R" still remains a mystery to all and we cannot help but wonder it is a nod to "Remake" or "Remaster" for Nintendo Switch maybe? We don't know that for certain but our bet is fans of the handheld console would wish it was.

Then again, why would a port for Switch would then show up with a PlayStation logo in the first place? Since the original Persona 5 was released on both PS3 and PS4, a release on the Sony console shouldn't be much surprising at all. We all have to wait until March 2019 is here.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The trailer clip showcases how much this iconic side-scrolling brawler has evolved in terms of fascinating hand-drawn visuals and modern way of combat. In a very short glimpse of story animation to our heroes facing enemies, we can only deduce that the fanboys are up for some nonstop action when the game eventually launches.

After Streets of Rage 3 was released in 1994, Sega ended an era of the franchise for Genesis consoles because; they couldn't introduce better quality graphics or gameplay mechanics of in 16-bit hardware. Afterwards, no one ever thought that a sequel will possibly ever come out but fortunately, we got our prayer answered. Since the makers of Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap is behind the project, we can expect nothing but another blockbuster victory on street in a raging glory.

Despite a hyped up reveal trailer to announce the title, we still don't have a definitive release date or details on selected platforms yet. So, hold on to your horses till they do.
