Kinda nice, though Ashlotte looks like she just came from Persona 3....and Shura from just any random RPG..
Blonde Tetsuka looks weird, I always prefered her with dark hair
and less boobage

Does anyone know if this game is going to be any good, or do we only know about the tremendous amount of T&A?
Yeah, why are they so stingy with gameplay footage? Fans are already wary after SC3, and SC2 wasn't exactly a huge leap forward either. At least they'll be able to patch balance problems this gen.

that girl in black suit is designed horribly.

what the hell is the other girl wearing - an iron fenced dress?...as a weapon.
You mean you don;t like japanese sandals, with leather chaps, a g-string, and a skull on the shoulder for no apparant reason? :lol

the drawings for the first and third chick are awesome, but the second one just looks like shit. did they hand off the character designs to just some random fucks?

I love the Ashlotte design, but what the hell at Setsuka, I never picked the blonde version in SC3 :(

This game has become some kind of caricature of itself. I'm sure the gameplay will still be there, but goddamn what were they thinking!?

Well, I could tell you which screen is the best ever in the history of the series, but I'll leave that up to you guys. The more I see of this game, though, the more I want it to be the best 3D fighter ever, just to further my evil scheme of proving that games featuring girls with huge boobs is the best thing ever.

Yes, I'm an asshole.

It's like some sort of bizarre Soul Calibur universe of hyperbole. It just keeps getting more ridiculous with every piece of artwork that's released.

I like. Is Ashlotte a doll or something? Her legs look weird.
That'd make sense to me... she also appears to have gears where her stomach should be.

Okay, I'm officially so sick of how ridiculous this shit has gotten that I am completely done with Soul Calibur IV. I don't think I could play this teenage fantasy with a straight face at this point, anyway. A billion incorrectly proportioned women wearing next to nothing? Check. Can we get Darth Vader in there too? Check.

Fuck this game and fuck Namco.

Is it too late for them to scrap this and just remake the original??? I would like there to be another 3d fighting game, that is not as complicated as vf5, but not a piece of shit either. Oh, well I patiently await the release. Its coming pretty soon right?

all 3 of these character designs suck in there own special way (what happened to setsuka?) but ashlotte is by far the worst. as someone else on gaf said she seems to have taken a wrong turn on the way to guilty gear.

Well I've found my new main character (Ashlotte). Only design since SCII I've actually liked besides Zasamel.

She looks awesome. Goth Lolita x Armor = Badass & Cute all rolled into one.

I think it will be interesting if this game fails to sell. It won't, anything with Star Wars in it, sells. Tits sell. Guest characters sell. Basically, Namco's thrown enough shit at the wall that something's gotta stick.

But I know the very same things that are getting those people to buy it are ensuring I won't.

Apart from the gothic lolita, the other two looks like they came out of some C-rated anime series. Incredibly generic designs.

Ashlotte looks great. I think people are on the right track with the mechanical doll idea, the stage she's fighting on seems to be a mechanized castle/clock. I want her to be a canon character.

Setsuka's art sure exemplifies the term "Heaving Bosoms". I'm curious to see her 2P costume. (Bring the dark hair back please.)

Shura's outfit is terrible. Will guest designed characters have 2P outfits, or just palette swaps?

I didn't know Astaroth was a Rocklord.

oh snap, Ashlotte looks fucking awesome. Definitely gonna use her :)

Also, why is setsuka blond? D: I mean, seriously. Also, Shura looks less slutty than I originally thought, rofl. She actually looks badass in that Ninja Gaiden sort of way.

I'm really curious if Ashlotte is an original SCIV character, or a manga-artist one. She screams Rozen Maiden-inspired, but she's too awesome to be by the Rozen Maiden artist. And a lance user too?? Do want.
