Enough underachieving. This isn’t the 90s anymore. There should be multiple bosses instead of just one or two.
The problem is that bosses take away development resources from actual playable characters.
I’m guessing the only unique boss is Sigtron.
In SNK Vs Capcom: Match of the Millennium, the mid-bosses were Bison/Geese. If you had an SNK character in the 1st slot, the final boss was Evil Ryu; if you had a Capcom character in the 1st slot, Orochi Iori was the final boss.
Here’s what I predict: you’ll fight Thanos at some point, who’ll be wielding all of the Infinity Stones. Once you defeat him, you’ll encounter Sigma/Ultron as a pair. After defeating them, they’ll merge into Sigtron and have access to the Infinity Stones for the entire battle. This’ll be the final boss.
I’m fine with this if it means that we get all three as playable characters (especially Thanos, if he keeps his MSH “best divekick ever”).
That said, if this is so, they should be playable in Versus from the start.
As long as Thanos has his Bubble of doom, I’m good.
I agree. Most look down on the idea of unlockables, anyway. I don’t dislike them, but I understand that tournaments makes it a chore.
While I hate to point to NRS games as an example, they usually spend quite a lot of time on single player content that doesn’t seem to detract from their roster development. Capcom always seems to do the most lazy and barebones content by comparison.
They could offer incentives to defeat bosses such as unlocking new stages, characters and costumes. They could add a time attack mode to see who can defeat them in the fastest time or let you take on other players in a boss vs. boss mode. There’s lots of things they could do.
NRS also has a larger budget thanks to WB backing.
EVERY BOSS EVER.
First Magneto. Then Thanos. Then Apocolypse. Then Cyber akuma. Then Onslaught. Then Abyss. Then Galactus. Then Ultron Sigma super ultra giant robot built by Dr Wily.
If we would have Sigtron an Ultron infected Sigma, the game should have mechanized henchmen infected also by Sigma or Ultron virus I won’t be bothered seeing new and returned mechanized counterparts of other Capcom villains and heroes exclusive to versus series that will serves as Sigtron’s version of the four horse men of Apocalypse or Galactus’s Heralds.
X-MEN characters in the base game? Never going to happen.
If we ever get a secret final boss for this game, I really hope it’ll be Logos.
Though it is a very recent character so I don’t expect it at all.
What’s Logos from?
Ultimates 2 #3, just came out a few days ago.
He’s the combination of Master Order, Lord Chaos and the In-Betweener after the former two killed The Living Tribunal in the previous issue (been a rough 3 years for TLT )
I don’t think The Living Tribunal is really dead, probably just not accustomed to its new powers well enough
Gotcha, he low key looks like something from Okami or Asura’s Wrath so I had to check lol
There’s no hierarchy in the post SW universe and it would seem like Logos wants the Tribunal’s old job.
I’m definitely not ruling out the Living Tribunal actually being dead, but personally I just think the new Living Tribunal isn’t quite perfect instantly reforming itself yet, and will come back soon enough.
Make Abyss playable but choose what version like Triborg from MKX
IDK why, but after age of ultron (the comic), every time a story involves Ultron, I think of time travel… wonder if it’ll be a thing on this story mode.
Well, it involves multiple realities at least.
