It appears that the first article from IPL has been released today. The article brings up the changes the game has gone through since last seen on the show floor of the Electronic Entertainment Expo. This includes a new critical stun that disallows holding and struggle escaping out of it, changes to the Critical Burst mechanic, disadvantage changes on block, and various option settings that many players I think will come to enjoy.
Check out the full article for all the news coming out of IGN's Pro League and our own DrDogg, and stay tuned for the next 11 days as the site counts down to the second I'm a Fighter World Championship tournament being held in San Mateo, CA on Aug 18th.
