Yeah the Shinobi character is Hotsuma from the PS2 game, not the classic Joe Musashi.
Thanks, corrected.

OH MY GOD, STRIDER AND SHINOBI TEAMED UP.

Interesting to see some of the pairs switched around. Dante & Vergil is awesome to see, but does this mean Demetri isn't returning, or perhaps he's paired with someone else now?

Also yay for more franchises being represented, like Yakuza, Soul Calibur, etc. & bringing some characters back from NxC like Strider.

Any comparison pic with the first one? Just to see better what's improved/changed.
It looks like the character sprites are bigger.
The stages too, the UI is a bit more different too (probably more visual feedbacks). Looking forward to see how it looks in SRPG view.

OH MY GOD, STRIDER AND SHINOBI TEAMED UP.
My highlight of the trailer.
I've always dreamed about this, but thought it would be impossible, even in crazy crossovers like this.

Edit:
I can guarantee you that those last two will be in, since they're what Project X Zone was about. Pretty important story-wise.

Looks like Akira is with Kage now and Yuri is with Flynn.

I wonder if this is going to be overall less sexually fanservicey than the previous game. Though the cynic in me says that's because Pai and Estelle were probably not that popular and didn't show much skin or bounce already.

Still have to play the first one toe out how excited I am (already know to have tempered expectations, but I enjoyed the Endless Frontier games despite recognizing their definite flaws), but yay!

Also, it seems incredibly silly to end on a teaser for Reiji and Xiaomu. Unless they somehow avoided having a major role the first time around...

I hope Gemini returns :(
I haven't played any Sakura Wars, but her was cool
At least the Darkstalkers characters are a staple.
 
Isn't that...err, way too soon to say that? These are just the first characters, more will be reveiled in the next months :p
Why the heck is Sakura not with Ogami, though? Philanderer.

No chance in hell. It's practically expected.

Or perhaps just more equally fanservicey. They slowly started in that direction in the last game.

Maybe they switched the Sakura Wars pairing around? *shrugs*

I'm sure Kogoro & Mii will return, considering Namco loves bringing back the crossover original characters. Plus the fact they were considered the main characters in the original.

Lolno.

We'll probably get Pai with Sarah now, like in DOA5.
Hell, we might get 2 teams per franchise for many series!

Pretty sure the last two will appear

I really hope they just changed the team ups. Kinda weird to have Sakura Wars represented in the game... And without Sakura. Hell, Sakura was even in that weird Sega Girls anime that aired 1-2 seasons ago.

Really weird that Reiji and Xiaomu are given top billing. I mean, that's the logical thing to do, but kind of unusual. Usually they're a bonus addition.

oh mann, kiryu and majima? strider and hotsuma? that rules

hoping to see some darkstalkers soon, though. i know that these games regularly have a lot of darkstalkers love so it's a pretty safe bet, but they're also pretty much all the series has left D:

I'm pretty sure there's going to be a dedicated Darkstalkers team this time, like Dante/Vergil is a DMC team

we had fewer character reveals in this trailer than the first trailer for PXZ (not counting the chromosomes teaser.) so I'm hoping we get plenty more teams.

I somehow played the first game all the way to the end but this one will have to be better to get my attention.
Yakuza characters are an awesome surprise.

Yeah there's that as well. Hmmm. This might be kinda interesting. It'll probably be no different from the first game, but I think it'll still be an interesting game.

Even so. Come hell or high water, the valkyrian blood will live on god damn it. I don't care if it has to be through Project X Zone. Just make it HAPPEN

And heeeere we go again.

It's made by the same team as always, every single character from previous installement will return as always, it will be slightly better but still repetitive as fuck as always.

So I don't think it's even worth trying to guess anything about the 3 above points, if you're into that kind of crossover and gameplay
(I am)
it's a pretty good news as it's typically the kind of game where we fully know what to expect :p

Can't believe this turd got a sequel. Why bother getting the rights for all these cross overs and then have the story/game in general be so bland? This franchise actively angers me with its wasted potential.

There'll probably be Valkyria team I feel.

I wonder what they'll do with Frank? Who could he be paired with if they decide to pair him up, Chuck? Or another Darkstalker again

April showing a bunch of nice games. And wow at Shinobi.....wonder why they changed a lot of the pairs? Maybe now you can edit the unit pairing to a certain extent?

Hmm, that's true. Maybe this time, they won't mix franchises for teams. So maybe Morrigan & Demetri are teamed up now.

I wonder if this means since Soul Calibur has an solo unit if we'll see a team unit. I'm sure Namco can think of someone to team up with Ivy's boobs two characters that can fight along side each other.
