Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome again to another sunny day or evening on Friday. I hope you guys are surviving this intense summer heat. As we make it to the second to last week of July, we are heading towards the upcoming August, another hot month. So much news happening that I can put into much words… or can I (To be honest, I have been behind on writing news. My life has been busy here lately.)? Besides the D23 news with Kingdom Hearts, we got more gaming news but from Evo 2017 Gaming Championship. Capcom recently released some news in regards to their titles Street Fighter V and Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite; Street Fighter V will be introducing a new and giant character in the roster named Abigail who came from the Final Fight game and MvCI released news of players being able to play as Gamora (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Jedah (Darkstalkers). If you are not a fan Capcom, I got other news for you from Tekken, Arc System Works and Arika!
Tekken 7 will be releasing a new character in the fighting roster from a different series. If you like Akuma from Street Fighter, get ready to play as Geese Howard from the Fatal Fury Series. This guy will be playable this winter. Arc System Works have been busy lately but with a good reason. On July 26th, they will be hosting a closed beta for the upcoming Dragon Ball Fighter Z; the game recently revealed that future Trunks, Piccolo and Krillin will join the roster. Besides Dragon Ball, they recently released news of a crossover game called BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle. The game will include 4 different series: Persona 4 Areana, Under Night In-Birth and RWBY. Last but not least, we have what was once an April Fools Prank but now it could be an official game. Game developer Arika who once was in charge of the past game Street Fighter EX series will be creating a new fighting game. It is unknown what is the game title is but they will make it.
After 13 years after the second game, Kingdom Hearts III revealed the initial release date in the Toy Story trailer. Kingdom Hearts III is expect to be out on 2018. 13 long years!
Also, to make a long story short, this weekend is Comic-Con held at San Diego!!!
With all this said, let’s start this shindig!

Overall, this is the current situation with Capcom and Arc System Works:
