Smash Bros. has a spirit event for Street Fighter’s 35th anniversary.

Evil Ryu!

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate tags Street Fighter for Evil Ryu spirit event

In the Street Fighter Alpha games, Evil Ryu is cold and conceited and is obsessed with fighting in order to prove he is the strongest. In Super Street Fighter IV, he is a more demonic and murderous-driven being; while his anger is not mindless, he has purged all traces of his former honorable self and shows sociopathic traits even more so than the likes of M. Bison. He enjoys absolute power, and lacks any sort of empathy or respect, and despises what he perceives as weakness from all of humanity, such as love, family, justice and vengeance. He is also extremely brutal towards other fighters in general, especially to those that oppose him. Interestingly, his prefight and win quotes against Ken indicates that he still retains a minor degree of politeness to his former friend (as opposed to the brutal and vicious statements he makes to everyone else, including Gouken).

Evil Ryu also refers to himself as heartless and nothing more but a demon and will seek out and murder any opponent in a fight, regardless of their age and condition. He displays a very dangerous bloodlust, even borderline sadism and ritualistic belligerence that almost borders on cannibalism, as seen in many of his prefight and win quotes.

The event — which kicks off tomorrow, January 14 — will see the nefarious Evil Ryu appear as part of a time-limited Spirit Battle. Naturally, as one of the greatest and strongest fighters on the planet, Evil Ryu is rocking a four-star “Legendary” status, so Smash Bros. players will have to bring their A-game if they wish to topple the Satsui no Hado-infused master and claim his “spirit” for their collection — a spirit that surpasses even Akuma himself in terms of offensive capability.

Kula Diamond announced for The King Of Fighters 15. (Team Krohnen is full)

Before being a killer, Kula is a child. While working for NESTS or for Diana and Foxy, she would not fail to kill anyone she finds unworthy. During her time with NESTS, her feelings were repressed, as she was portrayed as a cold girl executing her mission. She has since been defrosted into being more childish as of late.

Kula is trying hard to establish herself as a humane person, so people don’t look at her as if she is some kind of weapon, she doesn’t use her powers to full extent so she doesn’t kill anyone by accident, because she fears that it would make her go back to her previous ways, so she prefers close combat instead; Kula is usually worried about her foes upon defeating them at times.

Despite being this sweet innocent girl, she tends to have some anger management issues. They are mostly the results of people either talking down to her, underestimating her, or reminding her of her origins and calling her a weapon. She also gets angry whenever she sees flames.

Project Lumina has announced Melty Blood: Type Lumina free downloadable content character Aoko Aozaki.

Melty Blood: Type Lumina free DLC character Aoko Aozaki announced – Gematsu

Here is her character description, via the game’s official website:

One of only five magicians who exist in the world. Successor to the Fifth Magician. Overall, she is not considered a skilled magician. However, when it comes to “destructive” power, she is unrivaled in her talents. The sight of her raining down bullets like hot geysers has also given her the direct, yet rather tasteless nickname, “Magic Gunner.” Who she learned it from is unknown, but she is also familiar with martial arts, and has a battle style that could be considered a hybrid of those martial arts and magic.

She encountered Shiki on her travels. She gives him his glasses that suppress his Mystic Eyes, and teaches him the value of living things and how to handle things. For that reason, Shiki respects her and calls her his teacher. She’s a difficult person to pin down. She believes in justice, is unreliable, and a vagabond.

Some gameplay added for Dead Apostle vs. Ciel!! Melty Blood: Type Lumina.

Maxima is here for The King of Fighters XV, Team K’ is now complete.

The King of Fighters XV Maxima trailer, screenshots – Gematsu

「THE KING OF FIGHTERS XV」に参戦するサイボーグ戦士“マキシマ”のトレイラーが公開に。K´&ウィップと“K´チーム”を結成

Maxima is very serious about duty and business. He is a very honorable man who suffered greatly when Rocky died. He sees K’ as a new Rocky and calls him “Aibou” (“Partner”). He usually has to apologize for his partner’s rudeness with a humble attitude. His mellow nature seems to belie his age, as several characters mistake him for being a few years older than he really is.

The Type-M fighting style probably created for (or by) Maxima focuses on striking, grappling and the use of Maxima’s weapons. Most of his attacks have autoguard, making Maxima capable of blocking when attacking. His style employs a combination of striking combinations and grappling. Some of his moves seem to be inspired by pro wrestling, with him being able to do a dropkick, a Mongolian chop, a bear hug/suplex combination and a somersault senton.

Maxima also has an array of built-in weapons, which he uses to increase his fighting ability. His main weapon is the M-4 Vapor Cannon, a steam-powered impact cannon which is designed to deliver powerful punches that can send an unprepared opponent flying. The Vapor Cannon may also negate projectiles thrown at Maxima. A variation of the cannon is the M19 Blitz Cannon, which Maxima uses as an anti-air move. He jumps (with or without his jets) towards an airborne opponent, places his right arm on the enemy and activates his arm cannon, which sends the opponent flying to the ground. Maxima also has a pair of built-in jets on his feet, which he can use to quickly move forward in a line, or to jump.

Maxima uses his feet propulsions and his body weight to great impact to create the Bunker Buster move. He propels himself upward and falls on his enemy, which creates a severe shockwave, capable of sending nearby, unprepared opponents flying skyward. His Maxima Revenger move, consists of him grabbing his opponent, hitting him with a knee and throwing him into the air. When he falls, Maxima concentrates all his strength in his head, and headbutts him once or repeatedly.

One of Maxima’s strongest weapons is the MX-II Final Cannon. The MX-II is a powerful energy gun originally capable of firing a big projectile of raw energy. Maxima has modified the cannon to create the MX-IIb version, that instead fires a potent laser beam. Maxima also has a built-in energy cannon on his chest, which is directly powered by the small-sized nuclear reactor inside him. This chest cannon is probably Maxima’s greatest weapon and strongest attack. With it, Maxima was, in the past, able to fire a short ranged, but powerful beam of pure energy. Now, Maxima’s chest cannon has increased in power tremendously. He is now able to use it to fire a gigantic blue energy beam, capable of leveling buildings and his opponents alike.

waifu Dead Apostle Noel is coming as the next DLC in Melty Blood: Type Lumina.

Dead Apostle Noel revealed as Melty Blood: Type Lumina’s first DLC character

While normally unqualified to become a Dead Apostle due to lacking the potential, only reaching Rank II, Dr. Arach was able to artificially induce her transformation into a powerful Rank VI Dead Apostle. As a Dead Apostle, Noel can create large stakes that look more staves that she can throw as projectiles. These stakes can be chained together and used to attack a target with a large number of them at once. She can also summon large numbers of The Dead, often around fifty, to attack her opponents.

Upon being turned by Dr. Arach through the scientist’s experiments through her special drug Idea Replica, Noel also gained the Dead Apostle Ancestor Rita Rozay-en‘s Mystic Eyes of Roses, the world’s most beautiful, most unsightly Mystic Eyes; Rita’s Idea Blood. The eyes allows her create a telepathic connection between herself and her target, allowing her to either attack her target by projecting her traumatic memories into their minds or by sealing the victim’s mind within her own. When activated, her eyes turn to crimson and roses fill her target’s vision. However, as Noel’s Mystic Eyes of Roses are merely a replica of Rita’s, all Ciel needed was enough magical energy to deflect the eyes. It is implied that Dr. Arach’s procedure somehow granted Noel some of Rita Rozay-en’s other abilities, or those of a vampire from her lineage, as she also gains the power to sprout thorny vines from her person.

After having been mortally wounded by Ciel, Noel injects herself with the Idea Replica shot that Arach warned would kill her, causing her body to erupt into a storm of thorny vines that Noel tries to lunge into Ciel.

Ken’s stage: NYC Subway from SFIII: 3rd Strike is interesting, remade in Unreal Engine.

A fan remake of Ken’s Stage: NYC Subway, from Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike. As the backdrop to the legendary EVO Moment 37, I felt that this stage would make a fun project to test my skills in Unreal Engine 4.

Looks really cool in my opinion and whatever you can think, it’s still great, and the sprites are really well rendered in it at the end!!
