Streetfighter V: Necalli Debut Trailer and Information!

Posted in uncategorized on July 19th, 2019 by Bessie Peters

An All-new Fighter, Necalli makes his debut at EVO2015.

This just in- Yoshinori Ono has just debuted the first all-new character for Streetfighter V over at the just-concluded EVO 2015. His name is Necalli, a brawny and fierce male fighter with rather dreadful dreadlocks and a hair-raising schtick to his attacks.

Can’t really divine too much about Necalli from looks alone- his outfit looks like some ancient or tribal type of dress, and his fighting style is very beastly and feral, characterized by lots of clawing swipes and wide, flailing swings. Not very martial-artsy or pretty but very, very strong.

Character Art for Necalli.

The name ‘Necalli’ is apparently of Aztec origin, and means ‘Battle’. So it can perhaps be assumed that this guy is supposed to be some Aztec war god or super-warrior. That’s all we can get for now. Stay tuned as more is revealed of this new challenger.

As revealed recently, Streetfighter V will feature a 16-strong roster at launch, with four of these being all-new characters never seen before in the franchise. Necalli is the first of these original fighters.

UPDATE: Some new info has been posted over at Shoryuken regarding Necalli. Apparently he’s some sort of wildman- kinda obvious from his wild, animalistic attacks. However, his crazed exterior conceals a more powerful ‘genius’ that is unleashed when he activates his V Trigger. His hair becomes warped and energized (kinda reminds me of Gill, actually) and he gets all-new attacks and combos. This guy is a straightforward attacker, with lots of furious claw attacks and a command grab designed to reduce his opponents to rubble.

Not really my cup of tea- brutish, wild characters… doesn’t this kinda make him similar to Blanka, in at least look? Which makes me think the upcoming Brazilian character may not be our shocking beast man…

Streetfighter V: F.A.N.G. Trailer

F.A.N.G.? W.T.F?

It’s a bit late, but last week Capcom released the trailer for the final character of the initial roster for Streetfighter V during the Playstation Experience Event. My reaction to the fourth all-new fighter to debut in SFV is… WHAT THE-?!

F.A.N.G.’s (FANG from here on) design is of course not totally unknown- he looks like that stereotypical oriental villain with the glasses, wide-brimmed hat, overlong-sleeved robe and moustache/goatee… but I guess what creeped me out was his odd proportions- he’s too LONG and narrow, he doesn’t look normal- which is even weirder considering that the game already has pretty wild proportions for everyone else. In a roster of weirdos, FANG looks off-kilter as heck, which is saying a lot. Add to that his odd, effeminate movements and the voice (which makes me think of Chinese actor/VA James Hong), he’s really an oddball.

Well, given that FANG’s supposed to be a villain (and Second-in-command of Shadaloo, no less), I guess he’s fine. He certainly looks malevolent, and his poison attacks fit a baddie. That he doesn’t fit any previous mold of a character is a good thing, I guess- Capcom is keeping it fresh, even if we all found him disturbing as hell initially.

Streetfighter V is still a ways off- about two months away, but I am really looking forward to it. Thankfully the DLC characters are confirmed so I really want this game now. February can’t come soon enough.

Dark Souls X Evangelion OP is Awesome!

Praise the Sansviedotcom!

There are fan works, and there are fan works, and then there are awesome bits like this Dark Souls-ified version of the Evangelion anime opening. It’s got enough DS imagery and characters (often overlaid on Shinji and company) to make any proper undead giddy with delight. Heck, I’ve never really finished the game but seen it through thanks to Let’s Play series on YT, and I’m totally digging it. Sansviedotcom’s got lots of love for DS. I wonder what he’ll think of Dark Souls 2? For now though check out the vid and get ready to have your inner bonfires stoked.

A New DOA5 On the Way?

Posted in uncategorized on July 19th, 2019 by Bessie Peters

A short teaser trailer shown off recently at a Tokyo ‘Playse’ event.

Holy sudden upgrades, Batman! Dead or Alive 5 Plus hasn’t been out for more than a couple of months, and now this. Details are still kinda sketchy but obviously, a new version of Dead or Alive 5 is coming to Xbox360 and PS3 soon, and it will apparently feature the inclusion of Ninja Gaiden’s Momiji in the playable roster(something quite a few fans of Tecmo’s franchises have been asking for). DOA5 Ultimate? Perhaps.

Now, IMO a new fighter could be added simply as another DLC, so I am curious to find out what other content would warrant a new version of DOA5, and so soon after the release of DOA5 Plus. We’ll just have to see as Team Ninja reveals their tricks, hopefully soon.
