In wake of the hit video game Dragon Ball Fighterz announcing Base Goku and Base Vegeta as soon to be released DLC, Nintendo has revealed the twin plumbers themselves will only be available as DLC for $5.99 each.
“Hey, I said everyone’s in the game. I didn’t say how,” Smash Bros. creator, Masahiro Sakurai, said while riding the teacups at Tokyo Disneyland. “But, don’t worry, Metal Mario and Mr. L [alternate versions of the famous video game brothers] will be playable for free at launch date.

When asked whether Waluigi will make his Smash Bros. debut as DLC, Sakurai threw up. The interviewer was unable to confirm whether it was due to Sakurai going on TDL rides all day or a burning hatred toward Waluigi.

2D News: Hirokoshi Fell in Love with America’s Soul Food

Last week marked My Hero Academia series creator, Kohei Horikoshi’s first trip to San Diego Comic-Con. During the event, Horikoshi answered questions, signed pictures, and stuffed his creative hole with all the southern fried chicken, greens, and mac & cheese he could eat.

According to sources, an employee from Viz [My Hero Academia’s official English publisher] took Horikoshi and his entourage to Nicky’s Soul Food just outside San Diego during his first night in the United States.

“I’ve never seen a human eat like that,” an anonymous Viz worker said. “He took one bite of macaroni & cheese and never stopped.” The Viz worker also mentioned despite eating almost everything on the menu, Horikoshi took at least ten containers of peach cobbler and sweet potato pie to his hotel.

Things didn’t end there. Horikoshi visited the restaurant every day during his stay and even snuck forkfuls of chitlins, greens, and anything else he could muster while signing autographs. Many fans begun posting their chicken grease, cheese splattered posters on Twitter. An enjoyable experience by all did turn awkward when Horikoshi had to be dragged kicking and screaming on a plane back to Japan, fried chicken wings falling out every pocket on his body.

Chapter 378 will go down in history marking Hunter x Hunter’s 8,000th named character, breaking the record previous set by One Piece with a measly 6,889. The lucky 8,000th character is called Luini, a Heil-ly associate and voyeur extraordinaire.

In celebration, Shueisha held a Hunter x Hunter disco party outside their office. The event goers came dressed as their favorite characters, including, Gon, Killua, Leorio, and Kurapika. Hardcore fans showed up dressed as lesser known characters such as: Menchi, a Hunter examiner; Burnout, the sassy Heaven’s Arena’s Floor Master with a speech impediment; Dela, the alcoholic chimera ant; and Nog, Gon’s evil nen clone created by Ging’s petty ex-roommate.

Series creator, Yoshihiro Togashi, made a guest appearance between Playstation updates thanking his fans and announcing Hunter x Hunter going back on hiatus with a planned return some time mid 2027.
