I honestly think he would fit better in Tekken. And I vastly prefer VF over Tekken.

VF is much more grounded, especially in comparison to other fighting games. Kiryu is in the borderline supernatural territory which is a great fit for Tekken.

He would work great in KOF as well imo, but I'm very biased there. ;)

That would be cool. My Tekken days are firmly in the PS1 and PS2 era. I do look back fondly doing 10 hit combos and parrying like a boss. TTT remains my favourite. Kiryu will not get me back to the franchise but a T4 style shake up certainly will.

Also if this happens, that means Virtua Fighter exists as a video game in the Street Fighter universe. Think about it.

Edit: And so is Dead or Alive because DOA and VF are in the same universe too!

SF, VF, Tekken and Yakuza already share a universe in the Project X Zone series.

Doesn't even have to be specifically KoF - an excuse for Kiryu or Majima to have a brawl with Yamazaki would elevate any game from any of the involved companies.

Edit: To clarify, whoever this is surpassed Kiryu on replies, likes, and retweets. Kiryu is second, with Geese coming in third.

That's an official Twitter account for whatever that character's in, though. You get the official Sega or SoJ accounts replying to that tweet, you'll have a shitstorm of Kiryu likes.

True it is unlikely that they'll change whatever they have planned for the 2 characters in the season pass.

But who knows they might do a third (fourth? Technically Eliza is pre-order only for 30 days then she's paid DLC) character if the demand is truly high and the stars do align.

I'm all for crossovers and guest characters - it's great to see a character retain its gameplay identity in a sufficiently different system or genre, not to mention the narrative implications - but legally it can be a bit of a mess, especially when it comes to trying to port the game to different systems years down the line, with licensing contract renegotiations and whatever else is involved.

That being said, Namco Bandai has a healthy history with crossovers in general (at least with making them - making them available worldwide and preserving them for posterity is another issue entirely), between the likes of Project X Zone and Super Robot Wars in their history, so I trust them more than most with this sort of thing.

Oh Geese would be a fantastic choice.

The older badass thing just kinda suits Tekken, it'd be funny if all the guest characters were in that mold. Akuma, Geese, Kiryu and uh who's a female fighter... Ivy?

Why would it be Dengeki Bunko? That a Dengeki light novel/manga series crossover. Fighting Vipers or Sonic the Fighters, with is a Sega Crossover makes more sense.

You could have Kiryu, Bayonetta, Akira, Pai, Selvaria Bles, Lloyd Irving, Velvet Crowe, Jack Cayman, Eggman Robotnik, Beat, Ryo Hazuki, Ulala, a Sega Hard Girl, and the list goes on and on without even diving into the cartoony animal characters.

At this point, you could even include Segata Sanshiro and Mike Hatsune.

haha well, to be fair, when the thread originally died the first time, Kiryu won by 2 votes...out of 420. That's conclusive by definition but it was damn close and if I may so myself the closest poll in NeoGAF history.

I should have added that this is coming based off of Harada's own tweet for suggestions. I don't think he would tease the fans having a say if ultimately they don't. I'll add his tweets to the OP.

Originally Posted by Remapped88

Whatever story mode they have planned they should do Kiryu as Kazuya's long lost brother.

I was wondering that too. He is still at the end of the day a 3rd party, has appeared in Binary Domain and Project X Zone 2, even though he is basically a PlayStation mascot.

This game, if he does end up becoming dlc, would be crosspromoting Yakuza 6, which is also a Ps4 exclusive.

This also all started from Harada's own tweets of fan requests.

But seriously, the fact that Sega hasn't gotten AM2 on something like this already is something I'll never understand. Or hell, approach Capcom with the crossover idea...
