about X hours ago from

While it won’t come as a huge surprise that Street Fighter V’s big bad boss M. Bison is returning, he’s definitely got a few new tricks up his sleeve. Based on gameplay footage, he’s a teleporting beast that doesn’t mind putting his boot on opponents’ heads.

A gameplay reveal trailer on IGN shows M. Bison teleporting through projectiles, dropping in from above, and grappling with some added juice from his “psycho power.” Bison also seems to be able to nullify incoming projectiles and fire off some of his own.

You can check out the full trailer on IGN, who seems to have an exclusive for now. Street Fighter V is coming to PlayStation 4 and PC.

Nintendo has triumphed in court again, this time in a case involving the Wii Balance Board. The case was filed in May 2013 by Ithaca Ventures, which alleged that Nintendo had infringed a patent for a device called “Cybersurfer.”

Ithaca, a company based in Slovakia, sought damages, interest payments, additional enhanced damages, and attorneys’ fees. The company walks away with nothing though, as it has withdrawn its case.

In a Nintendo-issued press release, the company says that Ithaca lost a similar case in the German legal system. The result of that was an order for Ithaca to pay Nintendo’s attorneys’ fees.

Minecraft, GTA, And Five Nights At Freddy's Continue To Dominate Viewership Numbers On YouTube

Just as they did the month before, Minecraft, Grand Theft Auto, and Five Nights at Freddy's were the most viewed video game franchises on YouTube in April 2015. While the top five was rounded out by familiar franchises Call of Duty and League of Legends, some new entrants made their way into the top 20.

Thanks to the launch of Mortal Kombat X last month, the franchise made the biggest jump in the standings, while Battlefield and World of Tanks were the biggest losers in terms of franchises still on the charts. Several franchises also fell off of the charts entirely, however, including Halo, DayZ, and Just Dance.

The following chart provided by Octoly details the top 20 and gives some insight into the most viewed franchises of April 2015. If you'd like to learn more about the top 20 for April 2015, you can click here to head to Newzoo.
