I too would love some RPG characters but Sony doesn't own a lot of recognizable RPG IPs. Maybe Legend of Dragoon cam get a character.

Oh and Kat is a quasi RPG character, and female.

She checks those boxes Superbot. Make it happen.
Yes, they will be 75% forgiven with kat, 75% forgiven for a good Square Enix character, and 50% forgiven for each first party RPG character.

Those are my terms.

But would it really hurt casual players if they were a little bit easier to get to? I really think the AP meter hurts even casual players in the end, especially after they give us a little more onscreen info.

They are retooling the UI, hopefully including a meter that better shows how much harder it is to get a level 3 than a level 1. And from my experience with smash, even casual players like to play in stock mode all of the time, and I think even they are going to get suspicious when they see a level one user blow through peoples stocks, while that level 3 they worked all match to get only takes off a fifth of everyone's lives. I think for the way kills work here, anti-stock is going to be the better mode but it still applies.

Hell even with my plan, level 1s are still the best. Three level 1s for most characters are going to be beneficial to those that know how to use them. If there is a casual that can only kill with level 3s, it's going to benefit him that he could easily throw a level 3 out and even have time to build another level 2 or 3. It brings him up closer to my level, while still giving me the advantage.
No, I don't disagree at all. I think they SHOULD be easier to achieve, I just think that most of us more experienced players will get more value out of successfully executing Level 1's and 2's. I tend to win most of my matches as Kratos sticking with his Level 1. I pulled off a Level 3 for the first time on Saturday. Lol. I will occasionally go for a Level 2, but it's pretty rare. I just enjoy the Level 1, and setting people up/exploiting opportunity to take someone out with it is very satisfying.

Something like AP gain can be tweaked well before and after release, so at least what you guys are suggesting can be implemented and tested out, then tweaked some more. I'm just really looking forward to the next beta patch. It really needs it soon.

Kat, Cloud and Dart/Rose.

That would be perfect. I wouldn't even really be that bothered about the lack of Crash or Spyro anymore.
yes I would

If Square Aenix doesn't play ball the choices dry p pretty quick

I'd like a Persona / SMT character though
Yeah I really think Atlus would jump on the opertunity if superbot offered. Even if not I'd take a single character from Wild Arms, Legend of Dragoon, Dark Cloud, White Knight Chronicals, or one of the other RPGs I feel I'm forgetting about.

She is a fun character, but not a great character and really not recognizable. She is right up the front in the box art it's a terrible choice IMO. Have sack boy, and ape escape monkey, Parappa Represent the cartoony on the cover. She should be down the bottom of the list in terms of being the face of this game
Is FP really that unrecognizable? Wasn't Fat Princess one of the top selling PSN games of the month of it's release? I'd imagine that at least some segment of the PS fanbase that would be interested in PBR would recognize her (or mistake her for a Peach who's let herself go after settling down with Mario...).

Then again, maybe placing her up front with heavy hitters like Drake, Sweet Tooth (very iconic look and immediately recognizable to long term PS fans) and Kratos is a purposeful attempt by Sony to bump up her status by association. People are like, "Who the hell is this pink fat chick about to lay into Nathan Drake? She must be important in some way."

I do find it funny that she's pretty inactive in her own game, but in PBR, she's a powerhouse when in capable hands. I love FP, even though I've never played with her once. Lol. I just really enjoy fighting against a good FP player.

I really don't et why Fat Pncess is front and center in all the promotions. The guys at Superbot must be the only people in the world to like that character so much
Santa Monica studio is helping with this game, and they had a helping hand in Fat Princess.

That's just my guess.

Come on guys, 3 Tekken characters as playable? Not happening. At best DLC themed packs, and most likely minions. SB is just fucking with us. I know ur reading this Omar, stop trolling!

To the broad audience, I don't think they would have any clue who she is. I don't mind that she is in the cast, but as I said, she shouldn't be one of the faces of the game.

Nice try Evilore!
Lets just completely ignore the female cast of Tekken. :-(

Anyways, I'm glad if this is true, it means the initial leak isn't 100% solid. Which is what we were all hoping.

So they're going to have 3 Tekken characters? Really? I mean, I would rather not have Tekken characters, but I can understand having someone to rep the series and Heihachi's inclusion doesn't bother me, but hopefully they don't really have Tekken be the franchise with the most playable characters.

Also, while I like Raiden and think he'd be a good character, I really hope that all the leaks about him with no mention of Snake are just intentional misdirection to make us honestly surprised when Snake is announced. Because I can see no better way to solidify this game as "cheap Smash Bros. knockoff" in the minds of much of the public than to have Raiden and not Snake.

Nariko is a cool inclusion. Needs more female characters and I really liked Heavenly Sword.

I had only barely heard of her until this game was announced.

I do plan on buying it before it comes out though

Wow. I always miss these leaks. And yeah. 3 tekken characters are a bit much. -_- I hope they are minions.

Also, where the FUCK is Lightning? t______________t
Best thing about this leak. :)

It didn't even show all of the known characters though, so don't panic.

Tbh, I'm not that bothered by the Tekken fighters; on the other hand, they can just be minions.

I know it's something dumb, but it just nags the hell outta me that we won't be getting at least 4-5 female characters in the final roster.

Why not that fire chick from inFamous 2 instead of Evil Cole, or just have Cole transform to Evil Core Zelda/Shiek style?

Oh well.
