Why is everyone assuming we're getting a boss at the end of each path? There's no way Gill is making it in after being reduced to a mere costume and no one wants Seth in another game.
When I saw this:
I initially got really excited at the possibility of potentially 21 new characters! Then I realised its Capcom we're talking about... Sadly, I fear many of these fights will be against different "versions" of the character (see alpha ryu) or palette swap/skins. Eg. "Gill" as actually urien and "Sean" as actually Ken.
Heres hopin tho!
And I don't mean the process itself is expensive, it's that the style doesn't work with alt costumes.
Right now, alt costumes are making Capcom a lot of money, and having costumes that operated with procedurally generated clothing and hair physics basically lets them crank out those costumes quickly.
