There was a dark time in the landscape of fighting games. The genre was stagnant for what felt like ages before Capcom unleashed Street Fighter IV onto the scene. The home console release back in 2009 was equivalent to Third Impact, honestly.

Anime and gaming have always been hobbies that are, more or less, linked at the hip. Many popular gaming franchises will often spawn anime of their own while numerous popular anime will find their way to the digital realm sooner or later. Even the fandom side of things, which so often converge at anime conventions and other gatherings of nerdy types, tend to meld as well. Leading to things like small-scale fighting game tournaments at anime conventions and the recent upswell in visual novels and other related games appearing on Western shores in the form of titles like Steins;Gate and Dangan [...]
