RE: Fighting Games - ZpaceJ0ck0 - 03-08-2017

Today, SNK uploaded Whip's King of Fighters XIV reveal trailer, confirming her as the first DLC fighter for the game.



RE: Fighting Games - ZpaceJ0ck0 - 03-17-2017

RE: Fighting Games - ZpaceJ0ck0 - 03-17-2017

Today CFN profikes are Wayne Nakamura (the boss of the CIA agents featured in Q's ending) and Ken'ichi Kakutani (the karate guy from Makoto's 3rd Strike ending). The translation was provided by Miðgarðsorm from the SRK forums:




RE: Fighting Games - ZpaceJ0ck0 - 03-18-2017

The trailer for a new KOF CGI movie called "The King of Fighter: Destiny" was released yesterday.



Could this be that Chinese-made animated series they were talking about last year?


RE: Fighting Games - ZpaceJ0ck0 - 03-19-2017

Today CFN profile is Somsak (the Muay Thai jobber from Makoto's 3rd Strike ending). The translation was provided by Miðgarðsorm from the SRK forums:




RE: Fighting Games - ZpaceJ0ck0 - 03-24-2017

Vanessa is KOF XIV's Next DLC Character!




RE: Fighting Games - ZpaceJ0ck0 - 03-26-2017

Allright guys, is there any non-playable SF character you think should deserve a profile in the CFN website? I just have two requests.

1. Dr. Senoh from the SF2 animated movie: I mean, the monitor cyborgs gor a profile, so why not Senoh? Dude was even featured in Dictardor's Alpha 2 ending.


2. The original Geki (the one who got a profile was his succesor):  I am really surprised that they did profiles for every character in SF1 yet the original Geki didn't get one....

RE: Fighting Games - ZpaceJ0ck0 - 03-31-2017

Rock Howard is KOF XIV's Next DLC Character.




It feels so weird and somewhat wrong seeing him in a KOF game, but that trailer was amazing. It's Rock freaking Howard!

So 3 days ago Capcom uploaded a profile on the CFN website. This profile is about the most famous hoax character in the history of hoax characters: Shen Long. The translation was provided by Nicholas "MajinTenshinhan" Taylor from EventHubs:
Also, DC Entertainment and NetherRealm Studios dropped the latest Injustice 2 trailer yesterday. This time showing some gameplay footage of the badies.




RE: Fighting Games - ZpaceJ0ck0 - 03-31-2017

So Arika recently uploaded this on their Youtube account...




There are three hypothesis for this on the internet:

  1. Actual trailer for an actual game.
  2. Test footage used to gauge reaction (to see if the community would be excited for another Arika videogame).
  3. April Fool's joke (if this one is true, then is a considerable amount of work for just a joke).

UPDATE: More information has surfaced about the trailer.

Looks like the second theory may be true, after all.


RE: Fighting Games - ZpaceJ0ck0 - 03-31-2017

So a new 'Street Fighter Academy' quiz game was revealed today by Ono.
https://game.capcom.com/cfn/sfv/aprilfool/2017
It's supposedly only available for today...so everyone should play it, and learn some stuff!

More info has surfaced. The second theory was indeed (and the first one, to a extent), correct. There are even some screenshots being posted over twitter:

UPDATE: VesperArcade made a video about the subject.

Oh man a new "street" Fighter EX.

I know, right? About time Arika decided to do something with the EX cast on their own volition rather than wait for Capcom to make a deal with them.


RE: Fighting Games - ZpaceJ0ck0 - 04-03-2017

Netherrealm Studios recently revealed the gameplay trailer for Catwoman (Injustice 2).



Note: while is true that she was first revealed on the "here comes the girls" trailer, this trailer specifically focuses on her.
