So, let's recap:
- 28 characters
- Only 4 females
- 7 newcomers
- No black, hispanic or middle eastern characters
- No X-Men, F4, Final Fight, Okami, Viewtful Joe, Ace Attorney characters
- Only 1 non-MCU character
- 1 male DLC character returning from MvC2
- 9 characters returning from MvC3
- Only 2 characters from SF(Ryu, Chun-Li) and 2 from RE(Chris, ???)

Gamora is a nice touch, but the lack of Black Panther & Ms Marvel is a real bummer

Like, for a 2v2 fighter, 28 fighters isn't terrible. I felt even 32 characters was an optimistic guess on my part.

But god damn. These choices just reaffirm how this is the bare minimum. Jedah is the only interesting character immediately mentioned on the entire roster because he's an inherently unique character. Other than that, holy crap, it's so sanitized. Why couldn't you switch out one of these returning vets with Sigma?

The Capcom side is missing a character, but it’s probably someone like Frank West.
With all the lead up, that's actually not as bad as I was expecting.

They should have crazy plans for updates/DLC if they want the game to sell.

I'm happy that Arthur and Firebrand came back, that makes me really happy, and Jedah is a pleasant surprise, but Nemesis instead of Wesker is dumb and I don't really care for any of the Marvel characters. Losing Ammy, Phoenix Wright and no Asura is also a dealbreaker for me.

Will pass until the complete edition comes out.

Haha yessss Nemmy is back.

Now to wait for the hyperbole to die down in this thread.

Gamora over Star Lord or Drax is bizarre.
It's not bizarre at all... Marvel probably realized at the last minute that they have only 1 female in there and they didn't want yet another god damn Avenger in there but still wanted 2 GOTG reps so they went with Gamora. Imagine that cast without Gamora... pure sausage fest on the Marvel side.

I'mma go ahead and cancel my preorder for now until the other characters are shown to get a good read on them. This is a disappointing list.
No Moon Knight/Ms. Marvel/Deadpool/Zero/Amaterasu just ain't right.

Should have replaced him with Regina.
Would've helped out the lack of female character problems they're having.

This DLC plan better be off the fucking charts. They need to be hitting hard and fast all the fan favorites and most requested ones.
I don't want to see DLC wasted on the likes of Patrick Tyler and such.

I can see Thanos/Jedah being my Day 1 team and Nemesis/Arthur the team I go back to for ranked. I'm beyond pleased. I'm sure if I hand picked the roster, that would be the only way I or anyone would be completely happy but I'm content with the on-disc characters.

Getting rid of Wesker and Vergil makes me proud, but the possibility of them existing as DLC gives me a bit of anxiety

I was really hoping for a more interesting roster on the Capcom side of things. I've sorta lost interest in fighters over the past few years but was hoping to jump back in soon; if anything, I guess I'll be going for SFV and/or Tekken 7 over this now.

I don't mind Nemesis over Wesker (mostly because I love Nemmy), but the thing that bothers me is that it's Chris and Nemesis, who never met in the RE games, and as an RE Nerd I will be angry when they have a dramatic showdown in the story mode despite no prior history.

But god damn. These choices just reaffirm how this is the bare minimum. Jedah is the only interesting character immediately mentioned on the entire roster because he's an inherently unique character. Other than that, holy crap, it's so sanitized. Why couldn't you switch out one of these returning vets with Sigma?
Ha, maybe that should have been an alarm bell for us. One of the main two villains in the story mode isn't on the base roster.
