4 New Characters & Stage Coming to MKX in 2016

Yesterday, Ed Boon teased a reveal of sorts for new Mortal Kombat X DLC content. Turns out, the reveal is just another teaser... but Mr. Boon did confirm that 4 new fighters and 1 new stage is planned for MKX in the first half of 2016. This image showing 4 silhouettes may (or may not) give an accurate hint at future MKX DLC characters. Possible returns would include: Baraka, Sindel, Rain & Bo Rai Cho... but lately Ed has been obsessed with Xenomorph from Alien (on Twitter), so who knows.

Soul Calibur: Lost Swords Will End Service Nov. 30th

One of the strangest and most unnecessary fighting game spin-offs of all time, Soul Calibur: Lost Swords, will be ending its service on November 30th. (And good riddance... because a 1-player free-to-play fighting game based around micro-transactions never made any sense.) Before it ends, the game will host a "farewell event" between Sept. 16th-30th. Hopefully, this will be the first step in getting the Soul Calibur series back on track. How about some Soul Calibur 6?

Mortal Kombat X Cancelled For Xbox 360, PS3

While PS3 & Xbox 360 ports of MKX were planned and announced for 2015, the last-gen versions have officially been cancelled due to quality standards. "After months of development, Warner Bros. has come to the regrettable conclusion that we cannot release MKX for PS3 and Xbox 360. Our teams worked diligently to meet the quality standards set by the current-gen versions," said a Warner Bros. community admin. That said, if you pre-ordered a last-gen version of MKX, get a refund... and a PS4.

GGXrd -REVELATOR- Hits Japanese Arcades, In-Game Player Vote Will Determine New Characters

The sequel to GGXrd -SIGN-, Guilty Gear Xrd -REVELATOR- releases in Japanese arcades today!

This certainly sounds cool... but unfortunately, it seems players outside of Japan won't be able to participate in the voting.

Rash's New Alternate Look in Killer Instinct

The hype is still strong for Battletoads's Rash jumping into KI Season 3 as the series first guest fighter. Players who have access to the new beta can currently choose from either a green or a red version of Rash, but a recent image shows a more detailed skin for the Battletoad (with purple & dark green variants), leading some to believe that his original look may be his "retro" outfit. While Rash is still in development, check out images & video of Rash's new look.
