With E3 officially underway, it’s been an exciting day for all types of gamers. There have been no shortage of big fighting game reveals and teases, so here’s our roundup of the very best of day one.
Ed Boon Talks Injustice: Gods Among Us
Boon called this DC Comics fighter “Mortal Kombat on steroids,” and you’ll likely agree once you check out the gameplay he’s showed off so far. I personally can’t wait for this game, as it looks like Netherrealm might finally have their own game that reaches the spectacle of Marvel vs. Capcom.
Street Fighter X Tekken Vita Trailers
Say what you will about Street Fighter X Tekken, it’s clear Capcom is looking to introduce the game’s 12 new characters in a big way. There’s a new 8-minute cinematic trailer showing off the likes of Christie, Lei, Guy, Cody, and more, as well as some gameplay trailers showing the new fighters in action. Now Capcom, please release these characters for consoles as soon as possible, you may just inject some hype into a game that needs it more than ever.
PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale Footage
While PlayStation All-Stars takes some pretty obvious cues from Super Smash Bros., it’s looking like a pretty solid party fighter in its own right. Uncharted’s Nathan Drake and Bioshock’s Big Daddy were just confirmed as playable characters, and gamers will be able to compete cross-platform using the PS3 and Playstation Vita. Also, the fact that Twisted Metal’s Sweet Tooth has a Level 3 super has me a wee-bit excited.
In other news, EA has acquired the exclusive rights to make UFC games, which is interesting considering Dana White’s former lambasting of the company. We’ve still got Dead or Alive 5 and Tekken Tag Tournament 2 showcases to look forward to, among others, so stay tuned to FYR for the biggest fighting game news coming out of E3!
