Would have appreciated more from the announcements, but we got about what I expected. The two things I'd fault is not having a better option for non-Japanese speakers and also, prior to the stream starting, the English commenters hyping the future announcements.
Guys did you see that?
While Youhei Shinbori (DOA6 director) was showing the DOA6 swag, Harada grabbed a poster of Itagaki, flashed it on his webcam, started roasting Shinbori and cracked a couple of jokes while he was at it.
Announcements of the event, please let me know if I missed other ones:
-Guilty Gear Strive releases this Spring on PS4, PS5, PC and arcade
-Guilty Gear Strive characters announced: Leo Whitefang and Nagoriyuki, next one TBA on Octobe
-Tekken 7 season 4 announced: new moves for all chars, balance patch, online improvements (wifi indicator, have been testing rollback), online 'Tekken Prowess' points
-SFV demo announced, to be released August 5th (all 40 characters for free during 2 weeks)
-SoulCalibur VI DLC character announced: Setsuka, releases August 4th

-Some SFV season V characters to be showcased August 5th with devs and guests as Kenny Omega
-KOFXV update wasn't ready due to covid, news coming very soon
-Dragon Ball FighterZ announcements coming this August
They confirmed that they will reveal season V characters (without specifying the number of characters so it can be from 2 characters to 5 characters) and they will share eSports news and more in that event.
Regarding the 'and more' I assume they will announce the 'SFV trial' already announced in the Japanese stream, that will be released that day, which during a couple of weeks all players will have access to all 40 current characters. Both for current players and new ones, because this is also going to be released as a demo.
not having in person tournaments or evo and all of the cancel culture bullshiet really killed a lot of enthusiasm i had for sf5 but i loved the round table discussion, hopefully capcom delivers next week
Well GG Strive was the only highlight for me. Didn't see Leo coming back but glad he did, its really fun to play. The new samurai guy looks taken directly from a Samurai showdown, seems interesting. Also PS5 version confirmed!
