Might as well say it in this thread too.

Cervantes looks really plain...and not nearly as cool as his evil undead forms.

That monkey goku kid isn't even a stain on Kilik's underpants.

Why does lizard man have angel wings? Just...why?

Yoshi looks fine.

I'm digging his design too. He reminds me a lot of:


Fused with Son Goku from Saiyuki.

Edit: Cervantes looks a lot more ... human than usual.

I like Xiba and human Cervantes. I guess this basically confirms that Kilik is out though. I thought the comments about Kilik's "ill fate" were actually setting up his return as some kind of possessed character, but I guess he'll just "disappear" before this game.

New Yoshimitsu might look good in 3d, but the art really isn't doing much for him and Aeon.... what? I thought they'd give him back his human form. Now, rather than that, he got angel wings?

Are they trying to replace my Kilik with that little nerd? They bring back the old motherfuckers and Kilik can't make the cut?

Yeah, that's why I just posted pics and didn't bother to give details, because who the hell knows what it really says. We don't even know the kid's correct name, since it gets translated differently a few times.

When will we reach the point where the games will look as good as the production art? I can't tell aholes from angel wings in some of those screens. :|

As always Namco production art > Namco game.

The wings are a funky and unexpected touch, but not bad. It's definitely the best looking version of lizardman so far!

Though, I do wonder at the double axes - is he finally an original style and not a clone base character?

Monkeyboy is also LOL, but I suppose it's monkey king mania the last few years in all games.

Human Cervantes is awesome, I love the simpler design. It went way overboard (heh) in the last game. Same with Yoshimitsu. As for Goku, I can't really say, he looks like Hong switched styles or maybe Tokugawa guest starred from Sengoku Basara.

I'm guessing Aeon will be intelligent in this game so it might switch up his style a lot. Those wings really require an explanation though...

And yet there was never a problem when he was only a giant anthropomorphic reptile man with who knew kung fu.

Also, the in-game screen shots reveal he has a fire breathing ability now, so I think they're just slapping a lizard-to-dragon upgrade kit on him.

From the mangled Google translate, it does indeed say that Cervantes got a new body 12 years ago, and that Yoshimitsu is the second generation leader (so that's indeed Yoshi 1's head or helmet).

Apparently, he broke the Soul Edge's curse and obtained a new human body 12 years before this game. There's no full profile available right now though.
