Calibur 6 Community Questions
During EVO Japan 2019, Bandai
Namco held a "Project Soul Talk" event where fans asked a variety of
questions regarding the development of Soul Calibur 6 and future updates
to the game. In a new blog on Bandai Namco's official site, the SC6

topics, including: DLC updates, gameplay questions, in-game frame data, online

We all know there aren't
nearly enough characters named "Goku" in Dragon Ball FighterZ,
so Arc System Works is filling the void by adding "Kid Goku" from Dragon
Ball GT. The confirmation of Kid Goku comes from a scan
out of V-Jump magazine, showing the first artwork and screenshots of the
upcoming DLC character. Armed with his iconic "Power Pole," Kid Goku
will have access to his "Super Kamehameha" and "Reverse
Kamehameha" special moves, along with his "Super Ultimate Spirit
Bomb" Meteor Attack.

The King of Fighters XIV.
One thing Street
Fighter V has consistently done right is remaking and reintroducing
"classic" stages from the franchise's history. The latest reimagined stage

that every old school Street Fighter player will immediately recognize.
Not only did this stage appear in Street Fighter Alpha 2 as a story
battle / boss stage (and briefly in the intro); it's also an iconic location
from Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie.
