    I saw Groh and thought "They truly have surpassed Necrid."

    They might gone a little too much with the edgy/pissed off on Groh but if he can switch stances between dual wielding swords and single welding double sword he's an instant hit.

    I hope both Evil Kilik and Sigfried are mere alter egos of Kilik and Nightmare so we have a 0 % clone opening roster.

    Why would Sieg play like Nightmare? It's been a thing for years that they are different styles.

    Gameplay recorded on a phone looks way better. I just hope Gr0h isn't good but I bet he'll be popular unless he's garbage tier.

    I think it was in SC3 where Nightmare got a new movelist and Siegfried kept a version of his SC2 Nightmare style.

    Got Kilik and Xiangua are in, the former I as I hoped.
    I am not a fan of whole "superpowered evil side" concept yet ot still technically was thing with Kilik a long while ago. I am indifferent towards Groh.

    I know.

    Btw new gameplay shows Nightmare actually has all of Seigfried's stances. In fact his helmet got rekt and... that's Seigfried. It's not a Memory of Soul Edge ghost thing, he's the real deal. I suppose it makes sense being that this is an interquel type deal. He's bridging the gap between Sir Stancealot and King Slapahoe. I played them both so I'm good, but I guess the shining knight is no more.

    Also as I suspected but forgot to write here, Evil Kilik is in fact his Soul Charge form, not another character.

    Btw, I'm pretty sure Medieval Winter Soldier will have a form or extra weapon skin that's Calibur and Edge.

    Didn't get to play the demo at Evo. That said, the sign they had written on to get people to queue was pretty lolworthy with it's engrish.

    So this would take after SC3 at least? Awesome, for a moment thought it would be a lame reboot. Really want to see a character like Zasalamel, Tira or black haired Setsuka to be sure (yeah the last won't happen).

    Why do you think that? Kilik is wearing the Dvapara Yuga belt-thing(that should prevent him going berserk) instead of the pendant so he hasn't met Nightmare yet. Also, Nightmare is still possessing Siegfried. This new guy only means that the Algol backstory is still canon. Maybe the King appears in his ending or he'll actually be playable.

    The SoulCharge thing being different for Kilik and Grøh seems interesting. I might give the benefit of doubt for now. Did Kayane got sloppy or she's so excited seeing Xianghua back that she goes full YOLO 66BB every round?

    I keep thinking its going to be like MK9 and there's some time traveling element causing events to play out differently or placing things out of order.

    It's technically a reboot. Don't expect the entire cast from Soul Blade or from SC I, II, III, IV, or V to make the cut.

    A reboot in marketing only.

    Thank goodness I got the Nintendo Switch recently if the Lucina rumor is true
  • AriesWarlockAriesWarlock Joined: Posts: 3,722
    I wouldn't put my hopes on console exclusive characters. When Namco was at an EVO panel for SCV, fans let them know loud and clear they don't like console exclusive characters, and Namco seemed to get the point.

    Yeah, I have no faith in the leaks. Still, the Bloodborne Hunter would fit beautifully

    Weighing in on the whole guest character thing.
    First off, I'm usually not a big fan of guest characters, because they are either too random, not fitting or whatever.

    With Tekken 7 however, Namco (imo) picked two extremely well, being Akuma and Geese Howard.
    They actually made sense being fighting game characters (although one can discuss on like things like bringing 2d projectile zoning into a Tekken game etc) and to me (I only play Tekken casually from time to time) they were an exciting prospect.
    Imho, they beat "the flavour of the month" guest characters like SFxT's Cole, SC5's Ezio or Noctis.
    Now I know in games like MK9 and MKX, stuff like Freddy Kreuger, Jason and Predator sold the best out of all dlc characters and I understand they bring in the more casual audience (but MK appeals more mainstream to begin with).


    Keeping T7's Geese and Akuma in mind and Namco's relationship with SNK and Capcom, here are some, imo, possible contenders from those to companies.


    SNK

    A Samurai Showdown character

    Harada already mentioned that he was interested in doing something with this franchise in the future.
    That by itself already makes them a potential, add in the fact that they would fit in the game's setting and time line, a SamSho guest character a no brainer.

    Capcom

    Bishamon (Darkstalkers)

    You can basicly call Ono Harada's homeboy at this point. Ono loves Darkstalkers, lots of fans want to see a new Darkstalkers game and Capcom is more than happy to cross promote a DS character so they don't have to make a new DS game XD
    Being Soul Calibur, Bishamon would be the best pick.
    Given how awesome Akuma visually looked in Tekken 7, one can only imagine would cool a 3d Bishamon would be including his own spooky stage.

    A Plasma Sword/Star Gladiator character

    Quite obscure and I can hear you say "We already had Star Wars like crap in SC!"
    I mostly tend to agree, however in terms of gameplay these characters already share the whole basic horizontal attack, vertical attack, guard and kick button layout.
    Plus SG isn't known for it's excessive projectile gameplay, which would make them easier to implement.
    They don't have my preference though, since they would suffer from the same sci fi syndrome as a Darth Vader and Yoda in SC4

    Besides fighting game characters, I guess something from Bloodbourne, Onimusha or Nioh would fit in nicely.

    Given the pretty extremely fantastical elements they've added (Nightmare's knight's mare, crazy particle effects and auras) that they could take someone like Hayato and work him in with SC aesthetics pretty easily.

    Bishamon would be way cooler though. he would be VERY interesting in a 3d game.

    i dont care the typical dark badass
    im shallow so li like him lol he looks cool
    removing more commands i m hoping the movelist wont suffer too much
    there were so many things you could do in sc4 hidden things with each characters moveset

    ppl are DYING for a downgraded switch port for some reason.

    There are already things that are troubling about the development and the last thing I want is focus put on an inferior port to switch with that dumb ass controller and no fightstick support.
  • d3vd3v Coughing DAT PINK SPIT Joined: Posts: 37,384 mod
    Uh, an arcade stick for the Switch already exists.

    It seems that people just want to actually be able to play games on it that aren't old Neo Geo ports and an even more unbalanced ST.

    I dont want them to not have that, but not at the expense of an inferior game. Theres no point.

    I know nothing about Wii sticks tbh. They werent a think last time I checked I guess.

    There is in fact a pro controller and the 'puppy' configuration is also well enough.
