HBM News: 7/17/16 - 7/23/16

Once more, it is time for news. Sorry tat it's late, I was out of town. Anyway, here we go.

Street Fighter V: Juri is being made available this Tuesday. Her V-Skill, Kasatsushu, has her rush her opponent, kick them from behind. Her V-Trigger, Feng Shui Engine Type Alpha, allows her to chain all her moves into each other.Her Critical Art, Sakkai Fuhuzan, has her kick out a large, multi-hitting energy wave. Also, Summer Outfits have been confirmed for Cammy, Ibuki, and Laura.

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2: New screenshots confirmed Android 16, Imperfect Cell, and Time Breaker Bardock (from Dragon Ball Online). Good.

Injustice 2: Wonder Woman and Blue Beetle were confirmed in a new trailer. Wonder Woman is going to have an all new playstyle, rather than the stance system fro the previous game, and Blue Beetle seems to play similarly to Sinestro in the last game.

Sonic Mania: There were 2 new Sonic games confirmed this weekend. The first is a retro-style Sonic game. Sonic Mania has both returning and brand-new zones, lets you play as Sonic, Tails, or Knuckles, and lets you charge a spin-dash in mid-air. It comes to PS4, XBOne, and PC in Spring 2017.

Project Sonic 2017: This is the other Sonic game revealed this weekend. It's made by the same team that did Sonic Colors and Sonic Generations. The trailer shows giant robots destroying some city, and after Sonic does some Sonic things, Classic Sonic shows up. So... Sonic Generations 2? This one's coming to PS4, XBOne, NX, and PC in Holiday 2017.

That's last week's news. This week's will be on time, I swear.

Once more, it's time for news. And we actually have some this week. It's not much, but it's something.

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2: There was an interview held earlier this week that revealed, among other things, the story of the original Dragon Ball will not be in the game, every character and outfit from the first Xenoverse will be in XV2 right away, and you'll be able to learn skills from masters at Gohan and Videl's high school. Good.

Nintendo: Nintendo revealed that, on November 11th they're releasing the NES Classic Edition Console. It's a miniature NES that comes with 30 classic games pre-installed (Super Mario Bros 1-3, Zelda 1 and 2, Castlevania, Mega Man 2, Pac-Man, and more), HDMI support, game suspension like the Virtual Console, and a classic NES controller that can even be plugged into a Wii Remote to play NES Virtual Console games. It will be $60, with additional controllers being $10 each, I know I'm getting one.

Street Fighter V: In celebration of the Capcom Pro Tour, a bunch of premium DLC has been released. There's the Ring of Destiny stage, ebing a huge, Pro Tour themed wrestling/boxing ring. There's costumes for Cammy and Chun-Li, with one more being revealed later, and an additional color for every fighter released so far. You can only purchase this content with real money, and only until November. Seems like a waste to me...

Batman Telltale Game: The first episode will be releasing in August. That's it.

So, that's this week's news. Hopefully there'll be more soon.

HBM News: 7/3/16 - 7/9/16

It's once more time for news. Sorry this is a little late, but there wasn't much news last week anyway. So let's just get this over with.

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2: The pre-order bonuses and special editions were revealed. The pre-order bonuses are a Dragon Ball Super character (most likely Black Goku) and an extra vehicle, Mercenary Tao's Flying Pillar. The Deluxe Edition comes with the season pass and early access to DB Super Future Trunks. The Collector's Edition comes with a Super Saiyan Goku figure, steelbook case, artbook, and game soundtrack. We also learned that Frieza's Race characters can use the Golden Form, and Majins can go into a "pure" form (a recolor of Kid Buu, basically).

See? Not much news. This week's news will be posted on time.

HBM News: 6/26/16 - 7/2/16

Oh hey it's time for more news! There was a decent chunk of news, and I'm just going to go through it.

Street Fighter V: At the beginning of the week, it was announced that Balrog would be released alongside Ibuki and the Story Mode update. His V-Skill lets you dodge into attacks, his V-Trigger lets you do multiple specials in a row, and his Critical Art is a singular, powerful punch. We also got a couple new stages, being the classic SFII Las Vegas Casino, and the Kanzuki Estate Private Beach, complete with a swimsuit outfit for Karin. Juri and Urien's main designs were revealed, and they're actually playable in the story mode. All this was released on Friday.

Pokemon Sun & Moon: A bunch of new Pokemon were revealed this week. There's Bruxish, a fish with big lips; Cutiefly, a bee/fly kinda Pokemon; Drampa, a Dragon Pokemon that kinda looks like Falcor from Neverending Story; Togedemaru, which looks like a fat, gray Pikachu; Tapu Koko, a Hawaiian deity-esque thing; Charjabug, a battery-bug Pokemon; Vikavolt, an electric stag beetle; Komala, a koala; and Rockruff, a Rock-type dog Pokemon. So, yeah.

Dragon Ball Xenoverse: Gogeta and Janeba have been confirmed as playable, after missing out last game. It was also confirmed that custom Saiyan characters can go Super Saiyan 3 this time. And we now know that the game will be coming out on October 25th.

Bioshock: The Collection: This was officially confirmed for PS4 and XBOne. It contains all 3 Bioshock games, with all the DLC, and is coming September 13th.

Batman: Return to Arkham: This was delayed indefinitely. Hopefully they're adding Arkham Origins to the collection, because that would make it more complete to me.

One-Punch Man: For once, I actually have some anime news! One-Punch Man's English Dub has been officially announced, and will begin airing on Toonami on July 16th.

So, that's the news of the week. HBM, signing out.
