Street Fighter's Ryu is almost certainly coming to Super Smash Bros. (SSB). Multiple files featuring the character have been extracted from a recent update, adding weight to a rumor that began back in April.

Classic movies frequently get reissues and remastered versions with behind-the-scenes content, but games seldom receive that kind of affection.

It was roughly two months ago that I received a midnight email from our gaming editor Ben Gilbert. The subject: "Review Code -- Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate for 3DS."

Devil May Cry, in addition to sounding like a scrubbed Pablo Neruda poem, was an evolutionary leap from the clunky 3D action games of the '90s when it hit the PS2 back in 2001.

No one refers to video games as their "stories." Games tend to have a whole lot of sequels but they're hardly suited for serialized storytelling over a long period of time. Super Mario Bros. doesn't keep a thread running General Hospital style; the medium's just not built for soap opera. With the ...

Maybe Dante skipped breakfast, or maybe demonic construction on his demonic commute wasn't so bad this morning. Whatever the reason, Capcom's remastered action game DmC Definitive Edition is arriving a week earlier than expected. As we mentioned last month, DmC: Devil May Cry, a reboot of Capcom...
