Electric green man Blanka finally returns to Street Fighter

It's better to be fashionably late than a total no-show. Blanka's absence from Street Fighter V at launch was a bitter pill to swallow, but everyone's favourite weird Brazillian jungle-monster-man is back today and on form. Rejoining the likes of Ryu and Dhalsim and a few other frenemies from the good old days of Street Fighter 2, Blanka has picked up a few new tricks…

Blanka lights up Street Fighter V next week

It’s the big mon himself. Blanka, the beast-like brawler who first appeared in Street Fighter II, is coming to Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition next week, on February 20. He’s still got them electrics, he’s still likes to roll around and savage his opponents with his claws, and he’s still upset at the world for accidentally leaving him in the Amazon jungle for most of…

Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition patch notes punch out

While Capcom are holding true to their promise that Street Fighter V would be the one and only version of SF5 you need to buy, they can't resist their old habit of slapping on modifiers to create increasingly ludicrous names. Next week Capcom will launch Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, a big free update adding new modes to the fighting game as well as giving…

Spinning bot kick: Street Fighter Transformers are a real, official thing, somehow

Sometimes, fictional worlds collide because a movie executive figures there's a ton of green to be made from a bunch of superheroes frowning at each other. Sometimes, they collide because a toy designer has a brilliantly stupid idea in the shower. Ladies and germs, I give you Street Fighter x Transformers, which stars, amongst others, Optimus Prime as Ryu, Megatron as M.Bison and Hot Rod…

THE BEEF THAT I HAVE WITH STREET FIGHTER V

Hello. Usually I write perky upbeat stories about plants and walks but today I have BEEF. It is BEEF with Capcom about a missed opportunity in Street Fighter V [official site]! SO much BEEF I could open a butcher shop or a steak restaurant. It is BEEF so important it warranted a trip to Photoshop to rectify the situation AND I had to remember how…

Ice to meet you! Next Street Fighter V character is Kolin

The next pugilist joining the Street Fighter V [official site] roster is someone old, someone new, someone bearfriendly [nice -ed.] and someone blue. Capcom have announced that they're elevating background character Kolin to playable status, sending her out to ice fools with her cryokinetic powers.

Street Fighter 5 invokes Raging Demon, punishes rage quitting

Street Fighter 5 [official site] is sending mixed signals with its first content update of 'Season 2', adding returning fighter Akuma with his iconic 'Raging Demon' combo while also adding new punishments for rage quitting. So is rage good or bad? Perhaps the distinction is that it's fine if you hang around to pose moodily at the end. The update launches today, also rebalancing a…

Vomit comet: Street Fighter V aerial level pulled from tournaments

When Capcom discovered that a Street Fighter V [official site] level set atop a plane flying over Dubai was disorienting some players and even making them motion-sick, they pulled it from their competitive tournament lineup. Cowards. What rotten cowards they are. With all their know-how, they surely could've figured out a way to even the playing field by making all players equally ill. It'd certainly…

Street Fighter V Removes Buggy New Anti-Crack Tech

Capcom have removed the mysterious "anti-crack solution" they added to Street Fighter V [official site] in this week's update. We knew the September update would add Urien, the Illuminati VP returning from earlier games, and he's quite welcome. What was more of a surprise is the anti-crack tech that left some unable to play, triggered anti-virus and Windows warnings, and was generally unpleasant. That's no…

Since February they've added newbits including a story mode and five new characters, and a sixth is the last to come this season.

The biggest addition is Juri joining the playable lineup, returning from Super Street Fighter IV.
