Hideo Kojima has finally split free from Konami's clutches.
After having his name removed from the top billing of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and being banned from attending the recently ended The Game Awards to receive the Best Action Adventure Game award for the game, Kojima is finally gone from Konami, a game company that has been making bad decisions in the eyes of fans as of late.
In a video released on PlayStation's official YouTube channel earlier today, Andrew House, President and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment, Inc., delightedly introduced Kojima, who had just established his new independent development studio today, Kojima Productions. Kojima gleefully declared that he is looking to establish a new videogame franchise when his new company collaborates with PlayStation in their first-ever project that will be a PlayStation 4 exclusive.
Just a month after Cloud Strife was announced for Super Smash Bros. for the 3DS and WiiU, another surprising and exciting news comes from Masahiro Sakurai himself: Bayonetta is also joining Smash!
Sakurai recalled the result of the Super Smash Bros. Fighter Ballot, revealing that the angel-hunting witch Bayonetta is among the top five characters US players want to play as in Smash. She is also Europe's most requested character, and among all the realizable characters, she is the overall number one choice of players worldwide.
Tekken Project director Katsuhiro Harada had just announced at the recently ended Tekken 7 King of Iron Fist Tournament 2015 in Tokyo that an update to the arcade game is currently in development, called Tekken 7: Fated Retribution. And the most exciting part of that announcement is the launch of the trailer that reveals a new character: the Supreme Master of the Assassin's Fist himself, Gouki from Street Fighter!
Tekken 7's story trailer from last year's San Diego Comic Con shows a scene several decades before the current timeline, where Kazumi Mishima was visited by a mystery character. She told the shadowy figure that her husband Heihachi would eventually realize that their son Kazuya had inherited her Devil Gene, and she asked him to kill Heihachi should she fail and die trying to stop him, or else, who knows what destruction he will cause to the world.
The trailer after the break finally reveals the mystery man to be Gouki all this time, who says he will repay his debt to Kazumi when the time comes. His involvement in the Mishima Saga appears to be canon, and this marks the first time ever in fighting game history that a guest character played a key role in the host game's main story.

The makers of Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist are back with a new webseries; it's called Street Fighter: Resurrection.
No specific details have been revealed on the Machinima original series so far, except that Alain Moussi joins the cast as Charlie Nash, sporting his Street Fighter V look. This at least suggests that the story ties into the events of SFV.
Mike Moh and Christian Howard reprise their roles as Ryu and Ken Masters, respectively, while Joey Ansah also returns to take his mantle as the series writer and director. It's still a mystery if he will reprise his in-film role as Akuma.
Street Fighter: Resurrection will premiere on go90 in March 2016, a month after SFV is released exclusively for the PlayStation 4 and the PC.
Check out the teaser below.
Previously, after the success of Assassin's Fist, Capcom green-lighted Ansah's planned sequel, Street Fighter: World Warrior, taking place after the events of the first series. It looks like Resurrection was prioritized first to support the release of SFV.
Earlier today, Ansah, through the Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist Facebook page, released the following statement regarding the future of Street Fighter: World Warrior.
Dear SFAF fans. Street Fighter: Resurrection is a highly ambitious, action packed, live-action mini series which serves as a narrative prologue to the events of SFV. With the new game coming out and interest from both Machinima and Capcom for me to make a tie in, I couldn't pass up such an exciting prospect to leap forward a decade after the events of Assassin's Fist and write and direct a very contemporary part of the SF mythos. Featuring old faithful characters and brand new ones. The same level of detail and authenticity has gone into SFR as it has SFAF. I want to also address the subject of STREET FIGHTER: WORLD WARRIOR. Your passion and demand for seeing the direct narrative follow up to SFAF is understandable and heart warming. I spent most of this year completing detailed story development and structure for World Warrior. To pull together a production of that huge scale takes time. So rest assured SFWW is still coming! and to fill the gap until it is ready, you have SFR to look forward to. Trust me it will Shun Goku Satsu your senses. ~ Joey Ansah
World Warrior is still a go, and we have Resurrection to watch while waiting for it. Now I'm looking forward to the future of this series. Thank you, Joey!
The latest trailer of SNK Playmore's The King of Fighters IV was revealed at the PlayStation Experience event in San Francisco, CA last weekend.
The trailer reveals that 16 three-man teams are in the game, composed of 50 fighters. Kyo Kusanagi, Iori Yagami, Leona Heidern and Chang Koehan are now joined by Andy Bogard, Billy Kane, Ralf Jones, King, Angel and Kula Diamond.

Here comes a new challenger in Street Fighter V: F.A.N.G.
Introduced at the PlayStation Experience event in San Francisco, CA, F.A.N.G is the self-proclaimed second-in-command of Shadaloo. He introduces a gameplay mechanic new to the series: poison.
His V-Skill, Nishidoku, is a slow-moving poison projectile that damages opponents who come into contact with it. In his V-Trigger, Dokunomu, F.A.N.G releases a cloud of poison around his body, defending himself while at the same time damaging opponents who come close to him.
Check out his gameplay trailer below.
Square Enix revealed a short gameplay trailer of Final Fantasy VII Remake for the PlayStation 4 at the PlayStation Experience event in San Francisco, CA last weekend.
According to the official press release, the much-anticipated remake of the classic hit RPG will be "told across a multi-part series, with each entry providing its own unique experience." There is still no detail on when the first part of the episodic videogame remake will be released.
Check out the trailer below featuring the opening act of the original game in modern graphics and storytelling.
Recalling last year's PSX, game producer Shinji Hashimoto announced that FFVII will return on the PS4, much to the delight of the roaring audience. That elation turned into disappointment when the return only meant a PS4 port of the PC version of the game. Now, this remake looks to make up for last year's terrible trolling, but now concerns arise from gamers as regards the fact that the remake will be released episodically.
I'll keep posted on new details of this much awaited remake.
