First December update

Good evening everyone. I'm sorry to have left updating the blog for three weeks but I'm back with some interesting details and videos to share

The trailer shows some of the new V-Triggers that will be available to use in the game for characters such as Ryu, Nash, Birdie, Zeku and Menat among others.

Capcom has also recently shared a trailer for the next three DLC characters it will be adding to its current 2-vs-2 tag team fighter, Marvel vs Capcom Infinite. Captain America's old friend James 'Bucky' Barnes will be joining as the metal-armed Winter Soldier together with Avengers mainstay and double agent, Black Widow. Joining them is a returnee last seen in Marvel vs Capcom 2 and a long-standing enemy of Spiderman, Venom.

A light Saturday update

I've noticed looking on the blog that it has been dormant for almost a month. I may begin updating the blog regularly on the weekend with occasional light updates through the week going forwards.


The latest big announcement was the confirmation of which characters will be coming in the Fighter Pack 3 for Netherealm Studios' DC comics-based brawler, Injustice 2.

Joining the existing roster this time around will be The Atom, Enchantress and through a total curveball of a selection, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

You can check out the latest trailer showcasing the aforementioned characters below.




Additionally one of my favourite (if not actually preferred) fighting game developers, SNK, has been releasing an episodic CG series based around its long-running team based versus fighter called The King of Fighters: Destiny.




You can check out episode 1 above and the series as a whole is currently up to episode 15 at the time of posting this update. All the episodes can be watched on the official SNK YouTube channel.

A busy week

I apologise for the lack of updates recently. I have had quite a busy time at work recently and have equally been on the go over the weekend. I will be getting back to providing regular updates through September and the following months though, what with Marvel vs Capcom Infinite out this month.

Look forward to my future updates on gaming news and all of entertainment culture here at Honeyman-On.

SFV's newest character, Menat, is now live (30th Anniversary costumes also added with latest update)

Capcom's leading fighting game series, Street Fighter V, receives its newest fighter to the roster with the smooth-moving fortune teller, Menat.



Rose's apprentice with a unique groove,
Menat joins the fray


The apprentice of an Italian fortune teller (most likely Street Fighter Alpha's Rose), Menat uses her crystal ball amidst her regular attacks, allowing those players more technically minded to pull off some fairly interesting combos.

You can check her out (and her Joe Satriani-like character theme) via the trailer below.




Capcom has also added costumes for M. Bison, Guile, Karin and Ibuki to the game to commemorate Street Fighter's 30th Anniversary. They look pretty nice and hopefully Capcom will eventually make costumes to cover the entire existing roster to mark the occasion. They will set you back £3.29 each.







What do you think of the new addition to the cast in Menat? Will you be using her in Street Fighter V? And will you be getting any of the newly added costumes?
