It's against Beast Ganon, if anyone's wondering.

And also what's likely to be the final roster count.

The missing characters are Ghirahim, Zant, Ruto and Agitha, though we don't really know for sure thanks to Adventure Mode.

I'm sure it's in the OT but is there any exploration/puzzles in the game or is it just giant battles?

OT,

Not surprised at who the boss is.

Ah, so we got the full roster now. A bit disappointed considering I only really like 2 characters.

Also the Prima guide mentioned 15+ characters so we still have a mystery to solve.

Link alone has what, 4 different movesets, along with other characters' 2 and 3? That turns out to be way more than the average first Musou game of a series

I still wonder if that official strategy guide claiming "Over 15 characters" was a mistake or a sign of some more-deeply-hidden ones.

It is a character announced a while ago, and is behind spoilers in the post you quoted:

agitha, the bug girl from twilight princess. If you're like me, you didn't remember she existed til they announced her.

Technically 16 is more than 15. If it is just 16, then I will be kind of let down since I will only use Link and Dura.

Shows what I remember of her, I forgot she was even in the game.

I'll pick this up if it ever drops to $20-30.

Looks so incredibly underwhelming in every way. Boss fight being no exception, so obvious.

Sounds about right for a DW spinoff title.

They keep the roster low on the first title, but then bring in all the "fan favorites" for round 2, ensuring that people buy the sequel.

If you want to be technical we have 20 characters already if you include the different weapon styles.

23 if you want to include Cia/Valga/Wizzro.

Not bad at all IMO.

But each weapon plays so different from eachother. There are atleast 2 weapons per character.

Yeah, 16 is more than 15.

It is a little disappointing, I'll be honest. But really as long as everyone who's been shown is playable, I suppose I'm okay with it.

Now if we've gotten to this point and Cia, Wizro and Whosits aren't playable, that's a bit of a problem.

We'll see. Nintendo really announced everything about this game before it launched huh. Sort of takes the wind out of its sails.

Why would you include Cia, Valga, and Wizzro when it looks like they're not playable?

I'm pretty sure Saria is a "loli" so that's a pretty odd thing to say.

And for the less cynical/conspiracy spin, for the first game they need to develop the whole game, how it plays (yes, the different Musou games play differently), modes, equipment system, leveling system, etc. For sequels, they already have a basis and a core group of characters/movesets, so they can focus more and spend a lot more time expanding the roster.

Complain about child character, suggest other child characters.

Hmm.

On normal? Yes. The games can be quite challenging once you decide to up the difficulty though.

Well with Link and others having like 4 maybe it averages out.
