Hyrule Warriors For Nintendo 3DS Leaks Ahead of E3

Posted on June 12, 2015 by Rae Michelle Richards

A trailer appeared on Tecmo Koei’s official YouTube channel that accidently went live ahead of Nintendo’s upcoming E3 press conference showcasing an unannounced 3DS port of last year’s Hyrule Warriors.

In addition to content found in the 2014 Wii U original version of Hyrule Warriors this new portable edition includes two new playable characters: The King of Red Lions and Tetra from The Legend of Zelda: Windwaker. Apparently the 3DS version also includes some sort of compatibility with Wii U version as well, I am uncertain of the specifics because the leaked trailer is entirely in Japanese.

Even though the original video has been de-listed from Tecmo Koei’s Youtube channel you can find mirrors of it all over the internet, one of which I’ve embedded below. Expect more details in the coming days!

Street Fighter V Battle Systems Explained

Posted on June 12, 2015 by Rae Michelle Richards

Capcom’s upcoming fifth entry in the Street Fighter franchise is expected to have a huge presence at Sony’s E3 press conference thanks to the platform exclusivity agreement the two companies previously announced.

Before things kick off early next week Capcom has released a brand new “Battle Systems” trailer explaining some of the mechanics we can expect in Street Fighter V alongside a fresh batch of new screenshots. From the press release and trailer they’ve provided it seems like SFV feels a lot less like IV and more like the EX series.

Here are some of the new mechanics:

New Strategies and Battle Mechanics: Highly accessible new battle mechanics, which revolve around the V-Gauge and EX Gauge, provide an unprecedented layer of strategy and depth to the franchise that all players can enjoy.

V-Trigger: Unique abilities that use the entire V-Gauge, giving players the opportunity to inflict damage when activated.

V-Skill: Utility skills (such as evasion) for each character that can be activated at any time. o V-Reversal: Unique counterattacks that use one stock of the V-Gauge.

Critical Arts: Ultimate attacks that use the entire EX Gauge.

Honestly to me this feels like a cross between the “Ultimate” attacks that made Street Fighter IV so memorable and the nuanced EX Attacks that were introduced in the Street Fighter EX Series. I haven’t played Street Fighter V so obviously I don’t know how the game feels when you have a controller in your hands, but as you can see from the below media it sure is pretty.

Expect more on Street Fighter V as E3 rolls on all next week.Read More
