    I don't think Evil Ryu will be apart of the game, but I think SnH is going to be a major influence in Ryu's story (yet again).
    The man I face...my closest friend, my brother in arms, and my greatest rival...how has it come to this?

    The SNH would have been better if only akuma had possession of it. It's basically the SF version of SS from DBZ. And the power isn't even cool either. :/

    Need more FSE, psycho power other power action.

    New airfield/aircraft carrier stage in the roster presentation video with a bunch of Dolls. I can spot März with her new light colored vest showed in that Capcom online shop exclusive edition artwork and Février with the holster.

    SnH is actually a bit more nuance than a Super Sayain power-up, although these day's they're virtually indistinguishable in terms of presentation. SnH is the original form of energy manipulation Ryu's martial art used before switching over to Gouken's "emptiness", it's not a power-up, but just another way to garner energy, albeit life threatening. SnH is access to great power at the cost of death, and it has been portrayed as unstable. Not only can it destroy the user and his opponents, but any and all natural life that can't withstand being within the vicinity of a SnH will be subject to it.
    This is usually why Akuma's portrayal is media has been foreshadowed by a sudden evacuation of the local wild life, and occasionally dying foliage.

    Come to think of it, should the rest of the Dolls become playable characters? So far, we had Juni, Juli and Decapre.

    We don't need all 12, but it could be a good way to introduce a new weapon user out of the ones we haven't seen yet. I'd really like Santamu or Noembelu.

    If it was so "unstable" Akuma should still be having SOME difficulty with it. Even though he's mastered it. As for it's presence. Multiple have come into contact with the SNh and none so far have been affected by it. But eh, I' never been a fan of the power.

    Well, it kind of (and I really mean that generously) gives us a hint of story. But would it hurt to give us better animation? Or at least more to it?

    I don't think it's the full intro. We're probably getting it for launch trailer.
  • Chun-Li_ForeverChun-Li_Forever Chun-Li Fan Forever Joined: Posts: 835
    I hope so. Hopefully they'll extend it more. There are 16 characters in the initial launch. And they only showed Ryu, Chun-LI, Ken, Cammy, Bison, F.A.N.G, Rashid, and Necali. I would expect that they would showcase everyone.

    And I bet that as we get more unlockable characters, the intro is gonna change as well.

    what if there is no final boss and your final opponent is character specific like in alpha 2?

    That's my bet, too. It also fits much better with a growing roster than a fixed final boss system.

    Well i wouldn't mind that but this game needs one character to be the boss.
    and considering that sf1 had sagat (though you could only play ryu...), sf2 had bison, sf3 gill and sf4 seth, sf5 will imo be like the previous ones... but now that i think of it, each one had a different boss... sooooo.... maybe bison is also sitting this one out like in sf4.
    which leaves who? Like i said earlier fang just doesn't work for me... and all the others don't have what it takes to be the boss except for ssj necalli and possibly evil ryu... maybe Ono is going to have us in the dark with a final secret char released at launch as the boss.
    and then he will post a video where he shows his grand master plan of deliberatly leaking the chars until now just to keep the 17th char secret while he's laughing his a$$ off...
    that would be the ultimate troll x'D

    If it was so "unstable" Akuma should still be having SOME difficulty with it. Even though he's mastered it. As for it's presence. Multiple have come into contact with the SNh and none so far have been affected by it. But eh, I' never been a fan of the power.

    It's not that Akuma should or shouldn't have difficulty using SnH at this point, it's that his use of SnH will eventually drive him towards becoming an unstable entity. Akuma is still very much human, but on the brink of becoming something that's not. He has mastered SnH in the sense he has gained tremendous powers without succumbing to the Oni, but he wants a fight where he can let loose and fully break the boundaries of his humanity. Akuma's instability is inevitable, and he will welcome it wholeheartedly if he finds someone who can draw it out in a fight.

    Also, if you're implying Ryu has difficulty using SnH, even in his "Evil" form, you'd be mistaken. It's all too easy for Ryu to use SnH because this is what his art is based on, but it is in conflict from what his master Gouken has taught him. Even if Ryu were to turn to Evil he would still be in a major conflict with himself, and this is portrayed as "madness". Akuma would have no such inner conflict, as Goutetsu encouraged the use of SnH as that was the basis of energy gathering before Gouken. Akuma would feel like he has pushed the boundaries by constantly using SnH, while Evil Ryu would just be in utter confusion, but both would still be driven by a strong urge to fight to the death.

    This is where the whole instability lies with SnH, the energy is used to kill and that's all it will drive you to do while using it. In certain media's for SF outside of the games the SnH has been portrayed as miasmal, with Akuma's presence usually effecting the nature around him to the point of killing it.

    Tradition of fighting games mostly. The way the character line up is now I wouldn't be surprised if there isn't a traditional boss character and it ends up like Alpha 2.

    Whoever has the strongest install v-trigger will be the final boss, and it'll be activated either from the get go or from the start of round 2.

    Super Saiyan God Necalli it is then. All they need to do is replace the Anubis-like Illuminati statues with Beerus style statues.

    I can see Necalli working as a final boss. Round 1 is his normal state, Round 2 is his V-Trigger with some AI-exclusive perks.

    I think that'd actually be a cool boss. Kinda like God Rugal in a way. A hybrid fighter utilizing moves from both, though the majority would be Necalli's moves infused with Psycho Power. I'd like to see something like that. I'd even be fine with a souped-up, Alpha 3 like Bison as the final boss in Story Mode. I always preferred Bison as a boss character.

    Actually, it would logically be the majority if Bison's moves but more powerful than we have ever seen them. Bison's consciousness should take over Necalli's body, which would cause Necalli's consciousness to either be become latent, absorbed, or permanently destroyed.

    Either way I'd like to see a modern take on the Shin Bison character.

    It seems some of the dolls did undergo a redesign.

    The first doll is February because she has guns. Her name elludes me at the moment.

    The purple haired one is Marz (March).

    When you view things from the actual timeline of the series not a lot of time has passed from Cammy freeing herself to SF5. Especially considering that Shadaloo went dark and the dolls were hidden away in a secret research facility in the mountains until Juri kidnapped them.

    Agreed with février.

    What makes you think about Marz ? Her haircut ?
