Strategy games—of all persuasions, I'm not just talking about armies on a map—aren't usually the stars of big gaming shows, because they tend to be more sedate affairs, not well-suited to blockbuster trailers and breathless announcements.

Cyberpunk 2077 had its fair share of rocky moments, from its initial launch to the weeks following it, but CD Projekt Red has been hard at work since then to deliver another banger RPG game.

Want to know which Mortal Kombat 1 characters are on the roster? NetherRealm Studios is once again rebooting the timeline, only this time, we have Liu Kang as the Fire God guiding the mortals of EarthRealm instead of the Thunder God Raiden, as history repeats itself once more. However, instead of being a traditional fighter, Mortal Kombat 1 introduces assist characters called Kameos, who you can call to help get out of sticky situations.
So far, we've seen fighters we'd expect as Mortal Kombat 1 characters, and no new challengers have yet been introduced to the new timeline yet. That said, even some of the fighting game's classic characters have had tweaks to their origin story, with Scorpion seemingly alive and Kitana genuinely caring for her sister Mileena. With the Mortal Kombat 1 release date coming relatively soon, we're listing all of the fighters that have been confirmed so far.

Crunchyroll announced its Anime Expo 2023 plans, which included the reveal that 20 show premieres will take place. In some cases, it's the first time certain simulcasts or dubs will appear. It will be at booth #3000 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. A Crunchyroll Lounge will be at the JW Marriott July 1-3, 2023.
Here's the list of all the Crunchyroll Anime Expo 2023 premieres coming up. Where each one will be held and at what time is also specified. In some cases, it's only a North American premiere or the first time people are seeing the English dub. In some cases, there will be "rounds" of premieres, so it is uncertain which episode will air first. In those cases, I've put the start time for that "block" instead.
Here are its panels:
At its booth, it noted the merchandise it will offer.Bungo Stray Dogs and Solo Leveling bags will be there. People can also get free Mushoku Tensei pins and Dr. Stone posters. In addition to those four free items, it will also sell paid items, with some being exclusive to the event. It didn't specify all items that will be there. However, it will have a Silver Chrome Chainsaw Man figure and some Team Liquid Naruto clothing.

7-Eleven's Japanese branch announced a promotion with Hololive Shiranui Kensetsu characters is now live. As this involves 7-Eleven stores in Japan, people would likely need to turn to eBay or an auction site to get one of the clear files. While supplies last, people can get A4-size clear files of Hololive VTubers Shiranui Flare, Hoshimachi Suisei, Omaru Polka, Sakura Miko, and Shirogane Noel when they buy two Kowa Kewpie drinks.
The name Shiranui Kensetsu comes from the fact that the Hololive VTubers Hoshimachi Suisei, Omaru Polka, Sakura Miko, and Shirogane Noel are part of Shiranui Flare's Minecraft construction group and have their own Vtuber unit at the company. (The group has not released any songs as a group.) For these Hololive clear files, each character is wearing a school uniform.
Here's a closer look at all five of the Hololive Shiranui Kensetsu 7-Eleven clear files. Each one features one of the members in the school uniform on the front. On the back is a chibi version of the character in the same clothing. From left to right, Suisei, Miko, and Flare are in the top row. The bottom row features Polka and Noel.
The 7-Eleven Hololive promotion will run either until June 26, 2023 or supplies run out, whichever comes first.

When Blizzard released the Lord of Destruction expansion for Diablo II, it added the Assassin and Druid characters to the original games's five class lineup. Similarly, Diablo III's adventurer roster was bolstered by the addition of the Crusader class in Reaper of Souls and the Necromancer in Rise of the Necromancer. While Blizzard didn't announced anything yet, it's not unreasonable to assume there is potential for more classes to be added to Diablo IV as well, especially since the battle pass system likely means plenty of post-launch support. So what potential new classes could we perhaps expect?
First, let's take stock of the existing roster to see what roles or concepts might be missing, or what might compliment the starting classes. Currently, Diablo IV players can pick between the heavily armed Barbarian, the enchanting Sorcerer, the agile Rogue, the shape-shifting Druid, and the minion-summoning Necromancer. Now there are a few observations we can make about this lineup. First, there's only one heavy armor-wearing front-liner: the Barbarian. While the Druid can specialize in a tanky Bear form, they are also more of a flexible hybrid able to fill any role. Though the Necromancer has a wall of minions and can wear ornate-looking plate armor, their play style is more akin to a caster. In fact, of the classes three are casters of some form or another, so a more physical class would also add some variety.
The most immediate pick is some variant of the plate-armored Crusader joining the Barbarian on the front lines and potentially adding some support options for party-based play. It would also fit with the very Church-heavy storyline in Act 1. If Blizzard wants to differentiate it from the class added in Reaper of Souls it could always tweak the theme a bit. Naming it the Knight Penitent, for example, opens up a path for a blood-themed, flagellant vibe in addition to the typical holy knight style. Perhaps they could utilize the Church's Iron Maiden-esque suits of armor as an ultimate? Either way, it's a solid option, if predictable.
Other previously appearing classes include the Amazon and the Monk. The Amazon, while a unique theme, may have most of its roles and aesthetics covered by the existing Rogue and Barbarian. The monk, however, could very well fill those aforementioned support roles while being reasonably survivable in the front line. Depending on the theme, it could even perhaps provide an aesthetic contrast to those religious elements in the early acts.
Now Blizzard loves to retread old ground and bring back past favorites, but what if it wants to try something genuinely new? We're treading even further into speculation territory here, but we can still pull from themes and ideas in Diablo IV for guidance. Blood, for example, features heavily in both the thematic sense of family bonds, but there are also literal buckets of the stuff in the plagued areas. Pulling from that, a Vampiric character or Blood Knight could fit right in. Such a class is perhaps encroaching on the Necromancer's turf, but a lifesteal-heavy class that could lean into a more aristocratic aesthetic could fit.
We could also look for inspiration in the same cultures and locales like developers themselves did. For example, areas like Caldeum and Kehjistan invoke Arab and Turkish cultural influences, so Blizzard could draw from that area of history. Imagine a class modeled after a Mameluke or Janissary, an agile but tough front-liner wielding a spear and shield much like Darkest Dungeon's Shieldbreaker. Xiansai, the home of Diablo III's Wizard, is inspired by China and Asia, so we could do something similar and pull from those cultures too. Plus, new classes in Diablo IV necessarily don't need to be entirely new to the series; they could simply be a different interpretation. Imagine a warrior, but inspired more by Three Kingdoms-esque Chinese generals than European knights, or twist the Monk's aesthetic by drawing influence from Japanese Sohei instead of Shaolin practitioners.
Ultimately, we'll have to wait and see what plans Blizzard has for developing Diablo IV, but in the mean time, What class (or classes?) would you like to see added to the game?
Diablo IV is available now on the PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X.
