Mazda Cx-30 'just Right' Crossover Will Head From Geneva Into Production

Mazda CX-30 'just right' crossover will head from Geneva into production

As more and more customers move into the crossover segment, the less the segment is one-size-fits-all, or even three-sizes-fit-all. As such, Mazda has taken the opportunity at the Geneva Motor Show to offer a new, "just right" crossover to its lineup. The 2019 Mazda CX-30, as it's called, slots between the diminutive CX-3 and the compact CX-5 crossovers.

The CX-30 shares the "Kodo" (meaning "soul of motion") design language Mazda does so well, and the execution here is excellent, too. We love the long hood and simple but elegant curves, the way the light reflects off the sides in dramatic waves. Its no surprise that Mazda chose its Soul Red Crystal to show off the new model.

Still Not The Right Time To Launch Tekken X Street Fighter

We have been hearing about Bandai Namco's Tekken X Street Fighter game for years, and by now many have probably assumed that it has been cancelled. Back in 2015, the developers assured that this was not the case, although in 2016 it was revealed that the game is no longer in active development.

This means that while it hasn't been cancelled outright, it isn't actively being worked on either. For those wondering about the status of the game, the game's director Katsuhiro Harada revealed the reasons why they still have not gone ahead and launched it, and it basically is all about the timing.
