A quick post, this - Katsuhiro Harada, Tekken's lead developer, will be showing off the discovered secret TTT2 characters at 22:00 Japan time (2pm UK time), via Bandai's own streaming service. The stream will probably not be available to anyone outside Japan, but the footage will probably make its way to the open internet quickly after the broadcast.

Bushido Impact, one of Paris' major FGC events, was this past weekend.

Every week, Armshouse.tv showcases the best fighting game players in London in the weekly WinnerStaysOn tournament series, operating out of HMV Gamerbase Trocadero. Since the start of the summer they've been alternating between UMvC3 and SSF4 each week. They're always great tournaments, especially because the quality of the matches is complemented by a commentary staff that is both knowledgable and has a tendency of being a bit madcap.
In any case, this week is UMvC3. You can watch the stream below, or head over to Armshouse's Twitch TV page to view the stream chat and archives

Day three of i46 is here, bringing two pre-release tournaments and three other tournaments with it!

We've not covered General Skirmish's FGC podcast here at HitCombo yet, which is a bit odd as I've been on them in the past!

The podcast is embedded inside, along with a topic list.-
