This weekend is packed with all things FGC (Fighting Game Community) so expect a lot more people to either watch or go live on Twitch and YouTube. With it being just one week since Frosty Faustings and the release of Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, here is the next round of anticipated games and events.
EVO Japan (Street Fighter V: A.E.)
The event kicked off yesterday with the buzz around Twitter of Leah ‘Gllty’ Hayes laying the smackdown on the competition so far during day one. There’s still plenty more gaming to go as the weekend is just getting started.
Other games included in this weekend’s event include:
- Blaze Blue
- Guilty Gear X
- Tekken 7
- Smash Bros (Wii U)
- King of Fighters
All the games streamed can be view on Twitch at both Capcom Fighters and EVO’s page. Below is the schedule for the rest of the weekend.
Soul Calibur Reveals Four Character Additions
In a trailer released yesterday, three returning characters, Nightmare, Kilik, and Xianghua and new character Groh, will be making their way into the sixth installment of the Soul Calibur series. This brings the total number of confirmed characters to six as they join Mitsurugi and Sophitia, who were confirmed during last year’s Video Game Awards.
The release date for the game is not yet confirmed but more characters are expected to be confirmed as the game inches closer to its release. Get a first look at each characters gameplay below.
DragonBall Fighter Z Is Finally Here!!!
Since it’s announcement last year and the frequent character reveals over the past few months, the hype behind DBFZ was so big that fighting game fans believed it will end Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite. The argument stems from the comparison of fighting styles as DBFZ is similar to the MVC gameplay.
The game is out now and the goal for many is to grasp the gameplay before it’s officially part of this year’s tournament scene. With the game now released, players can actually practice their teams and matchups as the beta didn’t allow them to do that and received complaints about being disconnected from the server.
If you haven’t preordered to receive bonus DLC, you’ll have to check your console’s store to buy add-ons when they become available.
