After the travesty that is Alex, I'd rather they take the time and get the rest of the characters right.

I can only assume at some point we'll see a LinkedIn profile for the one dude at Capcom who is solely responsible for all DLC, testing, release and Game-as-a-service updates. Poor bastard.

Missing the May target is one thing. Cutting off the communication like they did (and still do right now for the english audience) is inexplicable.

Hey, Capcom, why the fuck did I buy a season pass?
You're still getting the character, aren't you? I get being pissed at the delay (I am, as well), but this is a dumb statement to make. Nothing from the season pass is getting canceled.

The way Capcom is handling everything about this game is makes me nervous about everything else they're possibly planning. DMC5 to be even more unfinished than 4?

I have a feeling story mode won't properly be revealed until E3, meaning we might have several weeks to go before Ibuki gets released.

That's disappointing.

I wonder if Story mode is actually going to be any good, anyway.

I'm conflicted.

We weren't getting a character in June anyway so this doesn't mess up the schedule at all.

BUT Capcom waiting until literally the last minute instead of letting their fans know early. That's some bullshit.

What? Zenny shop isn't up yet and people still have free access to these characters that were a perk of the season pass. I'm more pissed that there being nothing in May at all in terms of content to make this pass seem like it's worth a damn.

Wats it all the hyperbole?

Ppl acting like the character got cancelled
I agree partially, but it is pretty fucking pitiful that they can't keep a once a month content drop going and all. I get things happen and all, but goddamn.

It'll be the last second of the last minute of the last hour of the last day of the month.

Or very close to it.

Capcom seriously needs to work on their communication. They left us all at the airport holding flowers and a big Ibuki sign with Balrog scribbled out.

I think the idea is that people got the Season Pass to lock-in and get every character ASAP, and it trusts Capcom to deliver on time. A delay fails them on both fronts. And a Season Pass leaves room for delays by design, but a delay can still lead to some buyer's remorse.

When the zenny shop launches you'll get to keep the characters, others who didn't buy the pass, won't, and you also get the premium costumes and stages, as well, that they never had. Again, nothing is getting canceled from the pass. Being pissed about the delay is reasonable, but this is some fairly petty shit, to be honest.

That's disappointing - they should have revealed Ibuki earlier in the month and then said that it's coming with more goodies during the June update. Their communication with this game has been pretty damn bad, I'm not sure why. Even Marvel vs Capcom 3 was better than this and they dropped support for that game very quickly.

They can at least throw in the daytime Kanzuki Estate though, as that is obviously finished.

And a cash stop still isn't functioning for the game, lol.

At least people like me can play these characters completely free for the foreseeable future, and just have enough in-game currency to buy any other characters that might look cool.

Season pass owners have to be furious though.

lol Capcom...Why the fuck would you wait till the last fucking day of the month to announce this? And after showing the Ibuki trailer last night?

What a dumb ass move. How do they keep topping themselves again and again?
