Capcom has had a strong week. They seem to be listening to its fans when it comes to developing Street Fighter V.

Capcom has also announced a completely new character as well. Necalli seems to have an animalistic fighting style similar to Blanka. Read more about Street Fighter V news HERE and HERE.

Nintendo partners with Facebook
"To celebrate the upcoming launch of the Super Mario Maker game for the Wii U console, Nintendo is hosting a special “hackathon” event at Facebook headquarters in Menlo Park on July 28 and July 29.
Facebook is known for connecting people through delightful shared experiences,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing. “Video games fit that mission perfectly, and we’re thrilled to work with a partner like Facebook to help more people form connections through the joy of games like Super Mario Maker. It’s easy for anyone to create levels in the game and share them with friends, and we can’t wait to see what the talented Facebook employees will create before the game becomes available to everyone starting on the 11th of September." - Nintendo
