Last night at Evo during a video presentation for Killer Instinct’s latest character Glacius, an interesting teaser came up on screen at the end. You see an axe thrown into a tree. The axe is of course the weapon of choice for Killer Instinct alumni, Chief Thunder. Chief Thunder was introduced in the original Killer Instinct and looks to be the next character reveal for the Xbox One exclusive.

Below you’ll find an image of Chief Thunder in his prime, as well as the gameplay demo from last night. Enjoy!

Martian Manhunter Confirmed As 5th DLC Character For Injustice: Gods Among Us

Well Evo weekend has just wrapped up. That means that we’ve received a ton of news for all of the tournament viable fighters out there. Ed Boon and the gang from NetherRealm have announced what we all knew for a while now. Martian Manhunter will be the 5th DLC character for Injustice: Gods Among Us. Now what we know is that there will be a second season pass for Injustice, and the betting man would say that the leaked list of Martian Manhunter, Red Hood, Power Girl, and Sub-Zero is the most likely scenario for said season pass.

We’ll keep you updated on the release date of Martian Manhunter and the new Green Lantern skin when the news becomes available. For now, enjoy the trailer down below.

 

Capcom Announce 5 New Characters For Super Street Fighter IV Update

SSFIVAE2012

Well we knew that Capcom were to announce their upcoming ‘balance patch’ for Super Street Fighter IV. But we had no idea just what they had in store for us. Since 2009, Street Fighter IV has received a huge amount of balance patches and updates. First came Street Fighter IV, which then became Super Street Fighter IV (in wonderful Capcom fashion), and finally came Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition 2012.

Capcom had said that they were announcing the much hyped balance patch for the game at the premier fighting game tournament, Evo. The shocker came when it was announced that not only is it a balance patch, but an entirely new version of the game. Complete with 5 new characters and 6 new stages. Four of these characters won’t come as much of a shock to you, as they were featured in Street Fighter X Tekken. But here they are anyway, with official artwork.

The 5th character is a new character that is yet to appear in the Street Fighter series and will be announced at a later date. The safe bet would either be on Asura (of Asura’s Wrath) as he has already appeared in the Street Fighter IV engine, or another character transitioning from Final Fight.

On top of this, we have been promised six new stages and a handful of new modes. The update will be released as DLC for people who already own Super Street Fighter IV, as a full digital download, or on disc at retail. A pre-order bonus has already been announced. Pre-order with selected retailers and receive exclusive DLC costumes for the 5 new characters designed by legendary Capcom artist Udon as incentive.

The name of this new version will be announced along with an official trailer tomorrow before the Super Street Fighter IV Grand Finals at Evo.

Check out this video for the live announcement (beware, some crowd noise is NSFW).

This new version of the game is due to come out early 2014. Stay tuned tomorrow evening for more news along with the trailer.
