|The Cutting Room Floor|
Hello everyone! Today we're going to show off some characters that we designed, but unfortunately were not selected for the final game. Considering the number of characters we had to work with, we decided to go with 16 characters that were easier to deal with. While these characters unfortunately didn't make the cut, maybe they'll make an appearance somewhere!?
Fighting Literary Master
You need wits, not only power, in a fight! He's an old man that constantly grumbles to himself. The pen is not mightier than the sword in this game, however. Next!
This character idea also came up during Street Fighter IV. Seems like Akiman also came up with an idea for a fighting politician.
When this cutie starts fighting, her clothes start becoming more tattered due to her clumsiness. Uses tools when fighting. This idea came about when we were coming up for designs for Laura. Next!
This also came around when we were coming up for designs for Laura. She understood the hardships that Laura had when she was born. Even though we already had a name for her, she got cut. Next!
The Brazilian male representative. Way too similar to Roberto from Rival Schools, so he got the cut. BTW, Roberto was one of my favorite characters!
A dark characteHe's a young, ambitious fighter that learned Gen's Assassin's Fist and continued its legacy. r that would battle Necalli. He's a young, ambitious fighter that learned Gen's Assassin's Fist and continued its legacy.
Gen had fallen ill due to disease, and he sought to defeat Akuma, one of Gen's rivals. He didn't make the cut, so don't worry, Gen is alive and well!
An idea that we had when brainstorming ideas for F.A.N.G. At the time we wanted a character that used dark weapons and poison hands. He was a popular choice but wasn't evil enough, so he got nixed. Next!
Prototype Shadaloo Soldier
A design that takes inspiration from the Aliens vs. Predator franchise. If you look at it like that, this Shadaloo soldier is pretty idyllic.
But yeah, he didn't make the cut. Anyway, we love to come up with ideas for new characters so please look forward to more ideas that we plan to show off...that didn't make the cut.
Capcom Fighters Network
• Nelson – The boxing prodigy who wants to punch his way to the top in order to raise money for a loved one. He lost one of his arms in an accident, but was lucky enough to receive a mysterious cybernetic replacement that you could say gives him the upper hand during fights. With his fancy footwork and nasty hooks, Nelson will be a difficult opponent for anyone.
• Zarina – The savior of rain forests! She wants to raise money and awareness for the environment, and has zero issues beating up competitors in the name of nature. Zarina will dazzle opponents with her acrobatic Capoeira fighting style and is a strong member of this team. Oh, she’s also bringing along her adorable toucan friend Coco.
• Bandeiras Hattori – A self-trained ninja who practices the legitimately dangerous art of, uh, Brazilian ninjutsu (not to be confused with Brazilian jiu-jitsu!). Basically, Bandeiras is a 100% certified Brazilian ninja who wants to win the tournament to earn respect and get students for his dojo.
|Death's Gambit - Bosses Trailer|
Getting rid of immortals is seemingly impossible, yet that is your mission in Death's Gambit.
In this trailer we show just some of the different immortal bosses that you encounter. Our goal from the start was to make each boss have unique abilities that stand out from everything else in the game. We also wanted to give the player a large arsenal of weapons and abilities to tackle them. It is up to you to discover the best strategies and character build.
Although immortal characters and bosses can be defeated, they come back to life. You don't ever have to fight the bosses again but it may still be worth your time since they might drop different items depending how you defeat them. On the other hand you will also encounter mortal characters and friends along the way. Figuring out who is mortal and who isn't will affect the story. Wouldn't want to anger the wrong immortal right?

|Street Fighter V “A Shadow Falls” and Two New Characters Release Tomorrow|
Tomorrow, Capcom will release a major new update for Street Fighter V. The update will include a ton of new content, including the highly-anticipated cinematic story mode titled “A Shadow Falls” as well as the next two characters to join the roster: Ibuki and Balrog. The story mode will be available to all players as free content, and all released post-launch characters can be purchased using in-game earned Fight Money or real currency.
“A Shadow Falls”
The Street Fighter V cinematic story expansion is divided into five acts and takes place between Street Fight er IV and Street Fighter III, bridging the events that happen in between the two stories. “A Shadow Falls,” depicts the ultimate battle between the evil Shadaloo organization and the heroic World Warriors who rise up against them. As the story unfolds, players will enter battles using each of the core 16 characters, in addition to the 6 (released and unreleased) 2016 DLC characters, each with their own unique contribution to the epic clash. “A Shadow Falls” is free downloadable content available to all players and it marks the first time in franchise history that consumers will be able to play through this type of cinematic experience in a Street Fighter game. The epic battle between good and evil begins soon… who will RISE UP?
Announced earlier this week, Balrog is one of the most iconic characters in Street Fighter history, first appearing as a boss character in Street Fighter II. He’s always been one of the most vicious characters to ever appear in the series, using his devastating boxing style and questionable tactics to do whatever it takes to win a fight. Balrog’s playstyle in Street Fighter V puts the focus on his powerful punches, and with the use of his V-Trigger, he can chain these attacks together to deal some serious damage.
Also being added to the SFV roster, Ibuki is a very tricky, technical character with loads of new ninjutsu tricks up her sleeve. Ibuki is a mobile character with various target combos, but now she has even more ways to mix-up the opponent with the ability to glide through the air and toss out ninja bombs, making it very difficult to predict where she will land and where her next attack will come from.
In addition to “A Shadow Falls” and the next two characters, the update will also include:
• New stages – Balrog’s Las Vegas stage and Karin’s Kanzuki Family Private Beach stage are brand new and will be available to purchase using Fight Money or real currency. Additionally, three new alternate stage options will become available.
• New costume options – Premium Battle Costumes for all 20 released characters, as well as Karin’s Premium Summer Costume, will be available to purchase using real currency. Balrog and Ibuki’s Story Costumes will be purchasable using either Fighter Money or real currency.
• In-game Currency Shop – The in-game store will be upgraded with the PlayStation Store and Steam real money purchase options, for their respective platform. For players who want to purchase content like new characters, stages and costumes outright without using Fight Money, the process will be familiar with purchases happening through the established first party infrastructures.
• Matchmaking improvements – Faster and smarter matching, resulting in higher quality matches and a better online experience overall.
The pricing for the extra Street Fighter V content is as follows:

It’s been nine years since Irrational Games and 2K took you on a terrifying journey to the depths of the underwater city of Rapture with BioShock. Five years since you returned to Rapture in BioShock 2. Three years since you grabbed a skyhook and sailed across the floating city of Columbia in BioShock Infinite. And on September 13, 2016 (September 15 in Australia and September 16 internationally), you can relive these award-winning adventures or experience them for the very first time remastered for current-gen consoles and digital PC with BioShock: The Collection.
Countless fans have asked for this since the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One arrived – and we listened! Working with Blind Squirrel Games, we’ve remastered BioShock, BioShock 2, and BioShock Infinite for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC making them look better than ever.

If you’ve never experienced the series before, now is the time to play it and see for yourself why the award-winning BioShock franchise has topped countless “Best-Of” lists and garnered more than 125 awards including two BAFTA honors, as well as many Best of E3, Best of Gamescom, and Game of the Year accolades from respected outlets such as IGN, GameSpot, Game Informer, and many more . The weapons, plasmids, levels, and character models that shocked you years ago have been reskinned and retextured to look better than ever. On top of that, all single-player DLC created for all three games comes loaded in one package. The bundled content for BioShock: The Collection includes:

BioShock Infinite is not being remastered on PC because it already meets current-gen console standards and runs smoothly on high visual settings.
