Sony Interactive Entertainment and new esports venture RTS have jointly acquired the Evolution Championship Series

Sony’s statement said the Cannons will “ensure that Evo remains a one-of-a-kind, grassroots competitive platform for fighting game players and fans around the globe.” None of the parties to the deal revealed the cost of the acquisition, and Sony and Endeavor are likewise silent on their stakes and ownership split in the RTS venture.

Evo Online will take place Aug. 6-8 and Aug. 13-15 as an open format tournament, offering free entry to players in North America, Latin America, Europe, and Asia. The tournament lineup features Tekken 7, Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition, Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate, and Guilty Gear Strive, which launches in June.

“We want to reaffirm that harassment or abuse of any kind has no place within Evo or any of our future events, and we’re taking every precaution to make sure members of our community will always be treated with the respect, dignity, and decency you deserve,” reads the letter.

Also very important to note. @EVO is still open to all platforms. The teams at PlayStation and RTS are enabling us to continue working with our community to support fighting games. https://t.co/NKMQUSvkfj— Mark Julio (マークマン) (@MarkMan23) March 18, 2021

Pyra and Mythra revealed for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s Fighters Pass Vol. 2 #smashbrosultimate #switch

Xenoblade Chronicles 2’s Pyra And Mythra Are In Smash

Xenoblade Chronicles 2’s Pyra/Mythra Joins Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Game – News – Anime News Network

Xenoblade 2’s Pyra And Mythra Are Coming to Smash Bros. Ultimate

Pyra and Mythra from Xenoblade Chronicles 2 are coming to Smash Ultimate

I am not Pyra. I am Mythra. Pyra… She’s a different self that I constructed.
– Mythra
Mythra (Japanese: ヒカリ, Hikari; English dub: /ˈmɪθrə/) is a main character in Xenoblade Chronicles 2. She is the Aegis, a Legendary Blade who can grant tremendous power to her Driver Rex, and his allies. Since Pyra is another personality Mythra created, they can freely switch places. Rex is able to freely use this ability both in and out of battle upon starting Chapter 5.
Mythra’s powers have a focus on light-element attacks. Some of her other powers include near light-speed movement and Foresight, which allows her to seek into the immediate future. However, after Pyra shares her life force with Rex, Mythra becomes subject to the same limitations in regards to her healing capabilities and immortality.
Mythra is also a central character in Torna ~ The Golden Country. She is a Special Legendary Blade who can grant tremendous power to her Driver Addam and his allies.

Rex, I have a request. Can you…take me to Elysium?” – Pyra

Pyra (Japanese: ホムラ, Homura; English dub: /ˈpaɪ(ə)rə/) is a main character in Xenoblade Chronicles 2. She is the Aegis, a Legendary Blade who can grant tremendous fire-elemental power to her Driver, Rex. Pyra and Rex embark on a journey to search for Elysium, and Rex is devoted to protecting her.

Due to sharing her life force with Rex, Pyra is not able to recover from injuries like other Blades, and is as vulnerable to damage as any other human. If any of the two were to die, the other would follow.

Pyra was designed by Masatsugu Saitō, the lead character designer for the game.

#SNK vs. #Capcom: The Match of the Millennium is going to be next one in the “Neo Geo Pocket Color Selection” series for #NintendoSwitch.

SNK vs. Capcom: The Match of the Millennium rated for Switch in Korea – Gematsu

NGPC classic SNK vs. Capcom: Match of the Millennium rated for Nintendo Switch

As listed by The Game Rating and Administration Committee of Korea, it’s not a 100% official but has been rated for Nintendo Switch, so ..

In this battle, the mightiest brawler is crowned!

It’s time to settle the score… 18* of SNK and Capcom’s most popular characters collide in the pivotal battle of game history! Truly a match of the Millennium!

  • Thrill to three battle formats: Single, Tag, and Team.
  • Select from three battle types to suit your playing preferences.
  • Can you play VS Mode battles and exchange various data? Of course!
  • Jump into the new SC Olympic Mode and strive to break all records.

*Eight additional characters are unlockable.

Play options includes 2-fighter tag teams, 3-fighter queue teams, and of course, fighting solo. After that, the player can choose either a Capcom-style level meter, an SNK-style charge meter, or a ‘neutral’ meter that enhances super attacks if full. Every character also has their own rival, whom they will fight at the fourth stage. The last two stages have the player’s selected character fighting the tag team of Geese and Bison, then, depending what the side opposite to their character’s is, Orochi Iori or Evil Ryu.

As a side feature, there is Olympic mode, where the player can play themed minigames such as blasting Mars aliens FPS-style (lifted from the final boss of Metal Slug 2) or helping Arthur from Ghosts ‘n Goblins hop pits to snatch up treasure, as well as there being time-attack, first strike, and survival events. The player’s performance in these games earns them special vs. points which they can use to unlock a special attack for each character.

The Match of the Millennium is capable of linking with such other games as the Card Fighters series and even the Dreamcast version of Capcom vs SNK, but the only purpose this serves is data transfer. The Japanese version could also transfer data to the Dreamcast port of The King of Fighters ’98 for character points.

The use of both companies’ material is quite extensive, from every character having their theme playing (not always from the first games they appeared in), to the featuring of stages from both universes. There is also interesting screens shown when this game is used in a monochrome Neo Geo Pocket, with such things as Alex and K’ staring at each other, Shermie dressed up as Morrigan (to Yashiro and Chris’ awe), Chun-Li doing her taunt pose while Li Xiangfei plays a Neo Geo Pocket, and Lilith and Kaede playing Neo Geo Pocket together.

Sephiroth! Smash Bros.

Sephiroth is the main antagonist of Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy VII Remake and one of the major antagonists in its extended universe. In spin-off appearances, Sephiroth is depicted as Cloud Strife‘s archenemy and is seen as a symbol of Cloud’s troubled past that haunts him. Sephiroth is a former renowned SOLDIER who became twisted.

Before his fall from grace, Sephiroth was one of the most lauded success stories of the Shinra Electric Power Company‘s SOLDIER program. His successes in the field of battle during the conflicts surrounding Shinra’s bid for global domination led to his status as a celebrity war hero and the poster boy for both the Shinra Military and the company’s SOLDIER program. Learning of his true origins drove him insane, causing him to be driven by a desire to destroy the world.

Sephiroth is briefly a party member during a flashback in the original Final Fantasy VII, and is both the penultimate and final boss.

It’s been a bit over two months since Minecraft’s Steve was initially revealed back on October 1, and we happen to be just three days past Ultimate’s second birthday (December 7).

You can get your hands on this new fighter either by purchasing them alone for $5.99 or by buying the Fighters Pass Vol. 2 for $29.99. This latter route will also get you Min Min and Steve, the two first DLC characters of Fighters Pass Vol. 2, as well as Sephiroth, the remaining three unidentified challengers, and the six new stages that the pack also includes.

Sephiroth revealed for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

There was one SOLDIER named Sephiroth, who was better than the rest, but when he found out about the terrible experiments that made him, he began to hate Shinra. And then, over time, he began to hate everything.
