As former NetherRealm Studios' producer, Hector Sanchez announced back on November 15, 2013 that was retiring from the studio, it was something that the community under him did not want to believe. He became a community front-man for NetherRealm Studios - always listening to the fans, hanging out at fighting game tournaments such as the Evolution World Finals, along with other NRS members including Paulo Garcia, John Edwards, Ed Boon and more.

Combo breakers and martians could not stop the Injustice hype in Chicago as GGA Slips won this week's Ghost Battle Series.
