No matter how good or bad gameplay-wise Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax may or may not be, can we all agree its a huge fucking disappointment roster-wise? How can you fuck up a game's roster so much to the point where the majority of the damn assist characters would be more welcomed then most of the damn main cast.
For those not keeping track the roster right now is
Asuna - Sword Art Online
Kirino Kosaka - Oreimo
Kirito - Sword Art Online
Kuroyukihime - Accel World
Mikoto Misaka - A Certain Magical Index
Shana - Shakugan no Shana
Shizuo Heiwajima - Durarara!!
Tomoka Minato - Ro-Kyu-Bu!
The assist are
Boogiepop - Boogiepop series
Celty Sturluson - Durarara!!
Erio Tōwa - Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko
Haruyuki Arita - Accel World
Hinata Hakamada - Ro-Kyu-Bu!
Holo - Spice and Wolf
Kino - Kino's Journey
Kōko Kaga - Golden Time
Kuroneko - Oreimo
Leafa - Sword Art Online
Mashiro Shiina - Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo
Sadao Maou - Hataraku Maou-sama
Tōma Kamijou - A Certain Magical Index
Wilhelmina Carmel - Shakugan no Shana
Akira from Virtual Fighter is confirmed as a boss
I love Tomoka.
I think they should shorten it to Dengeki Fighting Climax so we can all just call it DFC
Also, Accelerator when
>Holo - Spice and Wolf
Could they have made a worse choice?
>Kino - Kino's Journey
And the answer was yes.
What is she going to do? Loli everyone to death?
>Shizuo Heiwajima - Durarara!!
I may not like it but I understand the rest of the roster, they're going for maximum waifu appeal and Kirito gets in because SAO prints money to an insane degree.
As cool as it is that he's there why does Shizuo make the cut?
>I think they should shorten it to Dengeki Fighting Climax so we can all just call it DFC
Why did I laugh so fucking hard at this. I didn't even notice.
You think they did this on purpose?
Because fujoshi. Celty really should have been the playable one though but sadly she doesn't seem to be that popular in japan.
Because too many womans so they need a male character.
Seriously what the fuck. Celty would be much cooler to see in a fighting game.
>even in video games, Kuroneko is second place
when I heard Kino was support only I it dropped before I picked it up
two fucking SAO characters and support Kino? what are you even doing
>only a support character
Almost as bad as Nagai these people
>she doesn't seem to be that popular in japan.
You're screwing with me right?
Is the roster final? does it have a set date?
They can still announce more characters right?
I will murder your family
Seeing as Kaga is in it but not Taiga, I'm pretty sure this is not the final roster.
>Sadao Maou - Hataraku Mao
Wow just yesterday I was thinking how kickass it would be to have maou as a playable character.
fuck this gay earth
As long as I can beat the shit out of kirino I'm satisfied.
She actually looks fun and totally ridiculous.
Taiga is a palette swap for Shana.
Kuroneko a shit
This is like worst girl compilation - the game.
Come the fuck on, now. I love fighting games and anime, but the characters chosen are shit. Please put Misaki (Railgun) in or something so I have a reason to actually play this game other than for its mechanics.
Fuck this gay world
How do you have Shizuo and not Accelerator. Come the fuck on
I get most of the roster but maou,touma,kino not being playable and wilhemia being in the game instead of yuji is just retarded. And there's no horizon character yet even though that should be an obvious choice for this game.
...That's it? That's the full playable roster?
What the fuck? How can you make a fanservice fighting game like this and only give it eight playable characters? Even the first Smash had 12.
Please tell me that it will have 4 secret characters at least.
Not really, Narita has said that he was sad that novel readers wanted to see Mikado's story pushed over Celty's and really Shizuo and Izaya are the face of the series now. Very sad.
Did we really need two playable Shit Art Online characters?
Not the full roster. Taiga has been confirmed for the game but we don't know what she is yet (implied to be playable by the producers)
How do you fuck up this badly
The fuck? She's the worst possible character for a fighting game.
>Why isn't my waifu playable ;_;
You're talking about a fighting where there are characters in the roster who doesn't actually fight, so why does it matter?
And nothing would change
Wait so, Assist Characters won't be playable? They're just tack-ons?
That's just stupid.
Will this be coming out for the Vita?
No fuck that I just want some more males playable
They're just strikers.
You don't have either of the guys that would be perfect for a game like this? Are you high game devs?
>Boogiepop - Boogiepop series
I'm surprised no one has complained about this yet
Fresh reminder of just how many series they can use, and the shit we're getting.
>Narita has said that he was sad that novel readers wanted to see Mikado's story pushed over Celty's
It's not their fault he made Mikado more interesting
That's typically how assist characters work, yes.
>no Straight Cougar
>no Shinguji Sakura or Ogami
And not a single Horizon character. As if the roster wasn't shit enough.
They should have:
1. Put Kirito as support.
2 .Added Anri and Celty as main and Shizuo as support.
3. The whole female cast of Oreimo as main.
In fact, it should have been "All female main, all male support" roster instead of this shit.
If there can be males on the roster they should put Touma in there as well.
>Strike the Blood
I wonder if Himeragi will make the cut. Someone linked a list of Dengeki Bunko's top sellers and Strike the Blood was surprisingly on it.
Or maybe Black Bullet will get some love, it was also on that list and has an anime on the way so it's ripe for some cross promotion
>No delicious Fear in Cube
0/10 shit game
At least they are athletic or in-shape.
But anon Kirito is best girl
All I wanted was to punch Kirino in the face as TouMAN.
Why must they crush my dreams.
>it should have been "All female main, all male support"
Why are you a faggot or what?
>the roster right now is
>Asuna - Sword Art Online
>Kirino Kosaka - Oreimo
>Kirito - Sword Art Online
>Kuroyukihime - Accel World
>Mikoto Misaka - A Certain Magical Index
>Shana - Shakugan no Shana
>Shizuo Heiwajima - Durarara!!
>Tomoka Minato - Ro-Kyu-Bu!
>The assist are
>Boogiepop - Boogiepop series
>Celty Sturluson - Durarara!!
>Erio Tōwa - Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko
>Haruyuki Arita - Accel World
Not Silver Crow? What can the fat kid do?
>Hinata Hakamada - Ro-Kyu-Bu!
>Holo - Spice and Wolf
Holo, not a playable character? Why? That's just shit.
>Kino - Kino's Journey
An assist eh? Cool, I guess.
>Kōko Kaga - Golden Time
>Kuroneko - Oreimo
>Leafa - Sword Art Online
>Mashiro Shiina - Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo
>Sadao Maou - Hataraku Maou-sama
Just why is he just an assist? Emi better be playable at the very least, otherwise it's just shit.
>Tōma Kamijou - A Certain Magical Index
>Wilhelmina Carmel - Shakugan no Shana
All in all. Better than expected, but kind of odd.
>I wonder if Himeragi will make the cut
>Not based MC
Why? Even her lesbian friend with the bow is cooler.
Tōma Kamijou IS A FUCKING ASSSIST CHARACTER?
I will never play this insulting piece of shit.
>Shana - Shakugan no Shana
Oh damn. I'm totally going to main Shana. What's her playstyle? Anyone know?
>Haruyuki Arita - Accel World
>Not Silver Crow? What can the fat kid do?
It is as Silver Crow
Shizuo seems like a more interesting fighting game character to me. How would Celty have played?
>Likes KYH but no Kirito
She's basically a male Kirito.
>Hating Asuna and Kirito like that
You're not cool.
There's like 3 people that know Boogiepop on /a/.
For what it's worth the movie has the best Yuki Kajiura soundtrack out there.
that's for dlc
Well the majority of the main roster are female.
>KYH is a male Kirito
Why is this so funny?
Also, I am really hoping that the Kirito we get is the girly trap version from GGO.
>Celty Sturluson - Durarara!!
>Haruyuki Arita - Accel World
>Kino - Kino's Journey
>Tōma Kamijou - A Certain Magical Index
>Wilhelmina Carmel - Shakugan no Shana
This is bullshit. All of them are capable to kick mayor ass and be decent characters. Dengeki is obviously only pandering to the creepy otaku. I mean, Haru is the fucking MC in Accel World and somehow basket loli is in the main roster? Fucking seriously?
Well, it's not like I'll get this game anyway.
Asuna and Kirito were engaging and interesting characters in a well developed...
Sorry I can't. SAO was shit.
With kicks, punches, maybe scythe other with specials having to do with shadow powers. More interesting to me than just the brawler that Shizuo is.
Of course he is. His entire fighting style is "analyze the enemy's abilities, come up with a counter that would work for only that one enemy".
And his only weapon is his right hand.
An excellent Assist Character that can and will block every attack.
Even the latest PV showcases his Illusion Breaker.
Fast character with long range due to her having a scythe, I'd say.
Fuck no she's not
That's actually the one choice that makes sense to me. Celty is great and all, and if the people making this game weren't retards they'd replace GLOP with Celty, but Shizuo throwing things around is memorable, and he does a lot of the actual fighting that goes on in Durarara
Yeah but having them both playable in a fighting game allows me to make them beat each other up.
For starters, her role isn't as big. Secondly, they aren't really the same.
Even if you don't like the series, why hate on nice characters? They're not masterpieces or anything, but they were characters that felt real enough to be able to relate and sympathize with.
Just recently i buy it the novel of Boogiepop and Others - that's what I call a underrated series
I thought Celty story ended after vol 1? The part where she was searching for her head feels more like a side story instead of main story.
Hipster detected. You probably hate KlK too.
>And his only weapon is his right hand.
And thats the fucking beauty of it. That's all he needs. All these super-powered badasses going around and all he needs is his right hook.
This just means that I can have Kuroneko assisting me no matter the playable character. Whereas I won't be playing Kirino.
Yeah but that's shit for a fighting game.
Is Kawahara so awesome that his characters really need to take up five slots in a Dengeki crossover?
If it's any consolation. He is the best assist in the game hands down. Needs to be nerfed.
The best thing is how boring Asuna's and Kirito's gameplays look, given how you have things like a pissed off guy throwing street signs, a bitch cosplaying and a loli turning people into basketballs.
It's like the staff didn't want to stick two SAO characters in there either.
Only if it came with an appropriate speech before he destroys her illusion.
His sales are
She may not have been actively searching for it but the head is a major plot point through out the entire series. Her story is one of the two main plot lines but it does take a backseat to the thee high school kids story most of the time.
But putting SAO characters in something automatically makes it 5 times more marketable, they basically had no choice in the matter.
>Kuroneko is such a slut she will support anywayone
I think he was. In the most recent loke-test, his IB wall didn't do as much damage as before, and his new jumping punch assist doesn't look all that hot.
Yes, it is a pretty shit roster.
Hopefully some of the Assist character make the jump to playable whenever this gets released on consoles.
And I am kinda dissapointed on how they are handling Tomoka, not enough basketball.
For the momento Kirito will have to do.
Hmm, not quite. But she doesn't seem like a rushdown character. Shana should be a rushdown character.
>Tales of Xilia
I'd be fine with any character from one of these series. Just please give me a good character.
The difference is that Touma doesn't have a wacky gimmick like Nick or Kirino do.
He's a straight action character who fights using primarily his right fist. And most of his fights are one-on-one affairs.
Mashiro is already in it, and that's spectacular.
Why does /a/ care when most of you guys aren't even going to play the game?
Nah, it's appropriate since Asuna and Kirito uses swords(which are cliche as fuck).
It's rare to see characters throws vending machines and signposts around. But that's what Shizuo usually do. If Anri Sonohara, Celty and Izaya were added into the game they'd probably bore you too since they all use cliche weapons(respectively, a katana, a scythe and knives).
NO. YOU GET GARY STU AND HIS PERFECT WAIFU GLOP. NOW BUY MORE OF OUR GENERIC HAREM BOOKS, MONEYBAG.
It makes sense to have Misaka as a main character. Kirito I guess makes sense too. The rest of them blow. Boogiepop, Holo, Maou and the Touman should all be main characters as well.
But seriously? Only 8 fighters? That's sad by itself, no matter how good they are. What kind of half-assed fighting game these days has only 8 characters?
>when most of you guys aren't even going to play the game?
You would probably be surprised.
We're at the misused potential.
>And most of his fights are one-on-one affairs.
So he isn't in...why?
Well there's no way in hell I'm going to play this shit now that I know my waifu isn't playable.
More characters are going to be added. Relax.
>Made by Sega
Because his fight style can't be accurately captured by a 2D fighting game.
He'd do nothing but throw right hooks and block all the time.
Well I don't want to play it now, but if the roster was better, I would consider it
if akira is playable I DON`T GIVE A FUCK ABOUT THE REST! I would enjoy fucking the shit out of the other anime girls, I FUCKING LOVE AKIRA so much fun mastering that bastard in VF2 and FM, these where the days, back from school and play in the saturn until the thing blows up and we had to change the laser a couple of times, playing all night long.
wish I could go back to these days.
Mikoto in a fighting game mixed with other characters that excel at CQC doesn't make much sense. But there are many characters there that makes even less sense for being utterly human or with no powers whatsoever.
Well, I'll still play it for mai waifu and other characters I like.
>Implying he doesn't have any other limbs
Nigger has legs and a left arm too, man
Even the Index fightinf game knows that
>Because his fight style can't be accurately captured by a 2D fighting game.
Look at the current roster
Fucking look at it
For all rights, most of the characters shouldn't be able to work in a conventional fighter.
French Bread, please.
I am guessing they aren't too interested in LN adaptations though.
Celty could have used fancy shadow powers, and that's ripe for a fighting game
They could have made 80% of that shit up and just let him be a generic brawler with good damage and the ability to block specials and he'd still be a top tier character.
If you needed to give him a gimmick, he always gets the shit beaten out of him. Give him clumsy looking moves, do whatever. It's definitely possible though.
How would you even make Touma playable in a fighting game anyway? A normal punching/kicking guy with three special attacks (30 seconds uninterruptible speech, instant kill attack that destroys the opponent's beliefs, and FUKOU DA)?
I'm going to import it regardless of final roster
A lot of people are
I'm sure they'll probably port this into Vita for a NA release in the future. That's how business works.
>Sadao Maou - Hataraku Maou-sama
i wonder if this makes Emi playable
They all have silly gimmicks he can use.
Touma is a straight action character. He has no flashy techniques or skills. He's a brawler who can only swing his right fist around.
Except no it isn't. This thing is never going to see the light of day in the west. Too obscure, and licensing issues.
You guys are complaining too much about assists. Being an assist isn't necessarily worse.
They are just as important, and are also able to pair up with all the other characters. Meaning that if your favourite character is an assist, you can play her with any number of different styles provided by the various playable characters.
He's not clumsy in a fight, though. He's actually pretty dextrous and capable of making agile moves.
I think Touma's assist functions pretty much accurately capture everything he'd be able to do as a fighting game character: block and punch.
>both Asuna and Kirito
God fucking damn it Dengeki, why don't you actually put some good characters from good series in?
You're a fucking idiot if you think this
This is how all fighting games work. Arcade release first, THEN we get an announcement for a console release.
That would be cool if we could play her silver/white haired form.
There has already been an Index fighting game
I would have a hard time imagining that. It's the same reason not a single non-OG SRW title has ever been localized.
Well, she's not a complete amateur in CQC. Martial arts are part of the Tokiwadai curriculum.
What licensing issues?
I forgot that she had a scythe. Yeah, that would have been okay. I like Shizuo, too, though. He's really the only part of the playable cast so far that I like.
Look guys, Touma as an assist is perfect.
He can stand and become a shield for a little girl. He can charge in fist first and punch out anyone who tries to hurt his little girl partner.
What more could you ask for out of Touma? He's the little girl's guardian, her protector, the one who can help her in her times of need.
I think they're both fine characters and their series isn't bad at all.
It's made by Melty Blood's developers.
>Sadao Maou - Hataraku Maou-sama
emi would wreck everyone`s shit and maou as support? op op op nerf pls
this is made by sega they are idiots this will be arcade exclusive dont trust sega
but i hope i work
Even then, it seems excessive to put them both in as playable characters considering they're both sword users from the same series.
Going by what the game is showing so far, I wouldn't be surprised if Tits McGee became the playable character.
All those ojou-sams at that school have martial arts as a required course? I want to see that.
As much as I would want Kojou you have to look at the rest of the roster, if anyone is getting in it's Himeragi
I hope they make him a fucking monster, I don`t want to see 2D shit wrecking the 3D god
When was Maou even announced for assist?
I may have missed the announcement.
Imagine a game where people have special swords, crazy summons, can turn you into a basketball and jumpshot you. All kinds of shit. And you're playing that one guy who just punches people.
That's fucking it.
All you do is punch people.
Sometimes you block, but it's really just spam the punch key.
Everyone underestimates you. But then you start punching them. And you keep punching them. And right when they think you're done you use "THAT".
In a flash, he Raging Demon's his way over to the opponent. Random text starts to fill the screen at a ridiculous speed until the whole screen goes black... until you see it. In bright white text.
YOU'RE NOT LIVING YOUR LIFE PROPERLY.
And Bam. You punch them off screen.
K.O. That's it. Fucking done.
Onward to stage two.
that`s why the game play is so shitty
>Watching a loke-test video
>One of the players uses Tomoka with Touma as assist
>Female announcer: "Wait, Kamijou-san, no matter how flat Mikoto is, I didn't think you were a lolicon..."
>Male announcer: "No, but see, Kamijou-san is EVERYONE'S ally!"
Clumsy in comparison to the superhumans he usually fights. I do somewhat agree with your point, but Touma has more potential than you're letting on.
Lore-wise, Shana and Emi would be the strongest among the playable cast.
When accounting all characters, Maou would be the strongest.
Fuck I didn't notice that.
They wouldn't NOT put Kazuma the fucking Shell Bulllet in right?
He'd be the least-flashiest fighter in the roster. Hell, he's already the least-flashiest assist.
How exactly does Mashiro fight?
I'm pretty sure that's his appeal. Fukou da and all.
They just need to give him a pot of coffee as a special move.
>Touma will never force his moral values of incest and friendship on Kirino before rocking her in the jaw.
I just want him with this as a speech bubble projectile now.
It's very cute, so I saved your image.
Please tell me there's gonna be some way I can play this in Clapland. I don't do fighters but I will play the shit out of this.
How can you guys hate the game with such vitriol when you have Loli Basketballers scoring a field goal off of you and dunking you en masse?
Except I never use assist in fighting games. I've always hated them.
>Imagine a game where people have special swords, crazy summons, can turn you into a basketball and jumpshot you. All kinds of shit. And you're playing that one guy who just punches people.
Super Smash Bros?
Hawaii Misaka is Best.
Big question here.
Is there a taunt button?
>People complaining about SAO characters
>When the loli basketball girl is infinitely worse
You don't need to be flashy. Hell, this guy turned it out even without any fancy moves in his repertoire. Also, Shen from KoF.
will this be coming out for the vita?
Man, those details I forget or overlook. I need to reread the manga whenever I have the time.
Why do you guys want Touma to be a playable character so bad?
Mikoto already is. And Touma is a great assist.
And as it is, you can play both at once.
Having Mikoto being an assist and Touma being playable would honestly be worse than the other way around. And if both were playable, you wouldn't be able to play both side by side.
You're an idiot
Oh screw you man. French Bread is great and Melty Blood is fun as fuck.
It's not so much Shizuo being the Durarara rep that surprised me as much as it was Durarara getting a playable character at all.
He make everything he touches burst into flames.
Do not ever try to reason with about SAO, last time I saw at Anon explain to them how the Anime adaptation created inconsistencies and how things actually happened in the novels, about the recurring themes in Reki works and VR science fiction, etc
Of course Anon did nothing but throw a fit repeating *shit* and *Gary Stu* with no real arguments.
It was a sight to behold, at least.
Tomoka is a good girl.
sure is fun when you can get a 99999hit only smashing buttons, no need for real skill or mastering a character
>implying she doesn't have the best looking combos
I can and will literally dunk on you.
No, scratch that, I will dunk YOU.
It hurts man
Kojou is so fucking cool
For as long as Emi makes it as a playable character, that's all fine and dandy.
Isn't this just an arcade only game?
>Female announcer keeps calling Touma and Mikoto a married couple
Think it's pretty clear who she ships.
Mikasa is shit, though.
I only want to see Touma.
Sure, he can make things burn and explode, but his combos were usually just slap slap and dunk + mix ups.
>I haven't actually played the game.
It's because Kirito came and fucked with the order of things. When you get TWO SAO characters (and a male, at that), that only begs for whining from all the other slighted fanbases.
But seriously, aside from the whole "printing money" aspect, it's pretty cheeky. Even Haru is just an Assist, but Kirito gets to be special. Oh well. I'll still be looking forward to the inevitable KYH Starburst Stream vs. Kirito Starburst Stream.
Oh fuck you man. Now I'm REALLY bummed about Touma not being in.
You made me legit bothered.
But I still want to teach Kirino how to live her life correctly
I'd rather main Chiho.
Why is Mac Johnathan?
Most people involved with Raildex ship Kamikoto.
Haimura, Miki, Fukuyawa, Ogino...
Kogino ships that vampire girl though.
Which thread was that? I'm just curious.
>Kirino doesn't care who it is so long as she gets what she wants
Oh that fucking golden
Got tears in my eyes
>HE FUCKED ME, I DON`T KNOW WHAT TO SAY
Touma's flying punch is pretty great, though.
You can have him work with your combo and punch someone with him at the same time. DOUBLE PUNCH
Maou is living the dream.
And last month he had to draw her as a bloody mess
Everyone loves the TouMAN
What. Link or pic please.
>>When the loli basketball girl is infinitely worse
You could just import it for the inevitable PS3 release.
>Why do you guys want Touma to be a playable character so bad?
Why do I want to punch people in the face as the most self-righteous character in his own work? Because it would be liberating and satisfying as fuck
She isn't flat though!
>Loves Touma but hates Misaka
You're a shit, anon.
But now you can beat your opponent with him. No matter the character.
Nah, most self-righteous character would be GRS or Kuroko.
All Touma's done recently is admit that his morals probably aren't right.
That's just her clothing making her chest bigger. She is no bigger than a A.
Touma would have made a fine basic fighting style protagonist type of character. One of the issues though, is that they probably have a limited roster. It would be kind of lame if the one character they chose from a series about people with superpowers is a character that just punches things.
>can we all agree its a huge fucking disappointment roster-wise?
Of course it is. Its a shitty crossover game full of whoever is currently famous
This, on the other hand, is how you do actual anime crossovers
You could technically do that before, though.
Even now, his block actually does decent damage.
Imagine all the moral speeches they could turn into supers.
>Those fucking Chis burgers
Why hasn't he hit that yet?
Huh, he does look kind of jojo-ish.
How could they miss the chance to make an Isaac and Miria slapstick puppet character? For that matter, how could they miss Baccano in general?
>Touma is the only assist character who got a segment all to himself in a trailer
They clearly regret not making him playable.
>you will never slap Kirito's shit with Regulus-Aurum
>two SAO mains
Fuck this game.
The whole intro scene in his trailer looks a bit jojo.
Sorry, usual raw site I use is down right now, but it should be chapter 75
Because he has a fetish for bitches.
I'd agree with you, but then I remember they picked that clown Madara to represent Naruto villains instead of the far more iconic Orochimaru.
Yeah, I know. LOLNURUTU.
>Watching a loke-test video
Where's this from? I can't seem to find it.
...But Touma placed higher than Kirito in the last character poll.
>8 character roster
That's not the final roster, is it? What is this, 1989?
I liked it better when Shizuo was the only male playable character.
Still hyped for fucking Koro-Sensei
>Touma assist CAN block everything
Gamebreaking stuff here.
>Its a shitty crossover game full of whoever is currently famous
>This, on the other hand, is how you do actual anime crossovers
> J-Stars Victory Vs
Are you kidding? Because that is nothing but the biggest sellers, in chronological order.
>That's not the final roster, is it?
Why would you even assume that?
I'm going to assume there will be a Bacano rep
I'm fucking mad because I KNOW it won't be the fucking Rail Tracer
This one looks like an actual game rather than a mugen rip-off
The OP didn't say that now did he?
>lol mugen rip-off
I'm one of the people that are fucking mad over this game but just stop this
Stop this right now
kuroyukihime mains where we at?
Your taste is shit if you can't appreciate the 2D fighter.
J-Star Versus is just a fun party game at most.
Why the hell did the give Gintoki a beam move?
Is this an image for ants
>Player summons Touma to punch shit
>Announcer: "THE HERO APPEARS!!"
>"I want to see him destroy that illusion!"
I fucked up, see >>102229964.
What game engine does Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax use?
IB > Starburst Stream
"they aren't qt grils"
-the game devs
Can Touma still block full super moves by himself?
I would literally pay money for a Prototype/Spiderman 2 type game set in Academy City
Haha, reminds me of Darkstalkers.
Seems like it.
The problem is the timing. The Fighting Climax describes him as a high risk, high reward-type support character.
Why is Kofuku so well off?
Who is giving jobs to the god of poverty? Who is worshiping the god of poverty?
What kind of powerset?
Standard TK probably works best.
Old agenda, I have bigger fish to fry
The pay-off is enough to win the match though.
It really feels like they need to do something about it.
Thanks. Heh, that was amusing.
That conversation about Touma being a lolicon starts here if anyone wants to check it out. People involved in games and otaku culture really can joke about lolicon over an airing, huh? It really is different than pedophilia and how the West would throw a controversial fit over it.
Have you never watched Gintama?
Who else would it be? As far as I know there's no one like Shizuo who's crazy popular over the others and there isn't really a main girl for the obvious pick.
How is the main character of Index just a support character? This is as stupid as MvC3 have Tron and Zero playable or TvC haing Roll and Zero playable and the main megaman of their franchise not playable.
Have we seen someone fuck up the timing?
Does Touma go fukou da when they do?
Don't you know? Megaman is dead.
>yfw Touma is the only character that becomes both an ASSIST and PLAYABLE character
Probably the same one used for Melty Blood
They kind of realize that it has little to do with actually breaking the law.
A homosexual doesn't necessarily go around raping people of the same sex.
It's also the deal that well. Being attracted to relatively undeveloped girls, is actually really common. If not in general, it is very common to be a stage most go through even if it may grow away.
Puberty starts kind of early after all.
It is looked down upon though. But it's certainly not serious to that extent.
>No TADA BANRI
TOUMAN THE BEST ASSIST
Is the scenario written by Kamachi?
You mean the same one for UNiB.
Remember that doing them while they're young wasn't always out of place.
Nah, it'll be written by Kawakami, and feature several hundred hours of story.
I'm assuming they all share the same engine, which is why I said Melty Blood because its more well known.
Why not both?
I don't think the game would be able to fit on any sort of disc or hard drive if that happened.
Death by stinky, reeking lolispats
If Touma gets hit, he sometimes goes "FUKOU DAAAAA!!!"
Here's what the Fighting Climax website says about him:
>Stands before his partner and completely negates all frontal attacks, providing excellent defense and chances for counters. Though he may be difficult to master, his effect is unrivaled.
Lolispats don't stink
They smell like flowers and candy.
Why is Kirino covering her skirt when getting the shit beat out of her? Wouldn't she be more focused on the pain coursing through her body, rather than hiding the panties that have been shown countless times over the course of the anime?
In a just world that attack would have ripped her in half.
There are some things girls my prioritize above all else
They're having someone draw original character portraits right? One of my favorite things about crossovers of this kind is seeing one artist's interpretation of the cast.
fucking touman, damn
I hope so
I wish arcade cabinets weren't so freakishly expensive.
I can't dish out over $20000 for a game.
Nope. They smell like sweat, piss, smegma, and shitty, stale farts. It's a pungent combination that's sure to gross out the entire roster.
Wait for the console release man
Do they have plans to bring it to consoles?
>Touma's portrait has him wearing his winter uniform
>The sprite is wearing his summer uniform
No, they use the light novel art.
Manami... are you still salty? Are you upset that Kirino won a place in the roster, as well as a place in Kyousuke's heart?
Law of the universe says that all lolis must smell like angels
Every single fighter gets a console release
The winter uniform is better either way though.
Those clothes he found in a dumpster are the best regardless.
I'm sorry. That law is nothing but a lie passed down for generations to keep the rancid power of lolispats away from the wrong hands.
That's true. Now this is probably too niche for a Western release.
So other than Kirino/Leefa, is there any other seiyuu overlap thus far?
Aquapazza made it here, and I think this has more appeal than Aquapazza
Importing is a thing
They're might be copyright issues. Plus, I think Sega is less likely to localize something like this. It's thanks to Atlus that some of the most unlikely stuff gets localized.
>no Rail Tracer Nanaya clone
>no Dokuro-chan May clone
>No Horizon characters whatsoever
>No s-CRY-ed characters whatsoever
Fuck this game
If Sega won't localize Yukuza then there is no way this will see the light of day
>You will never main Touma and teach Kirino how to live her life correctly
You can still punch her in the face with him.
>Not wanting to pull off a combo like what the TouMan did to Accel
Taiga and Shana.
At least I can main Shizuo and teach Kirito how to be an interesting male character.
You can still have him assist in your combos. If you time it right, you can have both your characters hit the opponent at roughly the same time.
>Accelerator will never be able to combo with Touma
>You will never get Izaya as a main
>You will never see a unique Izaya and Shizuo pre-battle banter
We still have hope of getting Accel as a Main with LO as his assist controlling the Misaka Network.
>Doesn't even do damage
It hurts any one who touches it, but it's fairly worthless as an attack.
You can kind of use it as a trap by having enemies right into it.
Otherwise, if you want an attack, you're better off using his flying punch.
Where was Taiga confirmed, anyway?
You will never main Touman just to school fat otaku scrubs never to be bought with their dicks.
>You main Kirino? Bam! Live your life correctly, incestfag!
>Oh, you main Asuna? Bam! Live your life correctly and read a better LN like Index!
>Oh, you main Tomoka? Bam! Live your life correctly you disgusting lolicon!
>Oh, you main Shizuo? Good taste!
>Oh, you main Kino? I admit defeat. Best girl right there, without resorting to otaku-pandering bullshit
Just looking at this thing hurts me...
It hurts me deep...
>Oh, you main Kino?
But Kino isn't playable
I thought Kirito having to activate DW was pretty interesting.
Can't say the same about Asuna though.
Okay, okay, what episode was this? I thought I had memorized all the sexy KYH moments, but this one escapes me...
What's special about his flying punch? Hits overhead or something?
I think that was from the one of the OVA.
Iirc, that's from the OVA.
Well it's his only defensive option, but it looks to be surprisingly useful. You can use it to back up your own combo, and it seems to do decent damage.
>>Doesn't even do damage
That it doesn't deal damage is nothing, when it means you can straight up ignore the opponent's super move and punish them for it. While gaining ridiculous meter advantage.
If you have Touma as your assist, the opponent can't use projectiles or supers on you outside of combos.
And that punch of his is still real useful.
Does that name sound as ridiculous in Japanese as I think it does?
Touma has some real strategic uses too.
When he's in play, the opponent's cards become limited. The only way they can reach you is by jumping over. By limiting the number of actions your opponent can take, it makes it a bit easier to predict what they're going to do next.
It's a play off "Shirayukihime". You should be able to figure this out.
Wait. There is a Sonic stage?
How would you react if he ever becomes a playable character/assist?
Or you can block a super, and then punish. I really don't see why everyone is so hung up on it being able to block a super.
"Princess Snow Black"
Touma allows you to block without getting locked into a block. He grants you free movement. That's a huge plus.
>I really don't see why everyone is so hung up on it being able to block a super.
Because the opponent's loses meter. Doesn't deal damage, not even chip damage. Doesn't stun you, and is punished as a cause.
They do their super.
They lose their meter.
They are punished and lose their health.
They never recover, they lost the game.
>Asuna, Kuroyukihime, Mikoto, Tomoka Minato
pretty gud for me m8
they also said Pai and Toradora would be included
but as an assist he has all his canon moves; punch and plot armor/IB
My mains: Shana and Kuroyukihime
My secondaries for fun here and there: Asuna, Misaka, Tomoka
most recent footage including kirito
Only way they could get me to buy is to have Baccano in it with Issac and Miria assists
What about precog?
Also, just his presence alone should send Mikoto into wife mode and enhance her power by 50%.
I'm cool with Isaac and Miria
But I'd really much rather see Jacuzzi and Nice
>Yuu Kobayashi reveling in pure explosive ecstacy
>Flying pussyfoot stage
>plays in the background
You mean Yanbiri mode.
>see phoenix wright
Favourite mains: Tomoka, Mikoto
Favourite assists: Touma, Mashiro
I hope I will be getting some fine oki action out of these.
>the ken and ryu of dfc
it's fine it's popular enough and will be akin to sf4 online ken/juris
What can Mashiro do for assist?
>see iron fist
Phoenix Wright is low tier, has a built in assist, a competent joke character, and has a power up mode to be an interesting character.
All of which don't really fit Touma.
or like good devs they chose other characters with more iconic moves/abilities
>get fucked megamen
>8 character main roster
Hopefully they'll make another game with more characters than what'll probably be 12 at most
There even Ro-Kyo-Bu's little kids, and, really powerful
She jumps forward and starts dropping 4 cats left and right over the course of a few seconds.
She actually look quite useful.
her drawings come to life or something
SAO all the way, huh?
It's not done yet, dumbass.
And nobody said they have to fight in normal ways
That isn't the complete roster.
I don't think the main roster will be particularly large, but still. It will be larger than 8.
Her start-up time's a bit slow, though. A player with quick reflexes could beat her out before she gets a chance to send out cats.
>Yuu Kobayashi as Nice
But how can they put Sex Queen in the game if her seiyuu is voicing two characters
That's why I said 12, anon
Indeed. But I figure she has great oki potential.
Whenever you down an opponent you should be able to use Mashiro to great effect.
She should be able to provide decent pressure overall when utilized correctly.
>hell, if Dengeki allows, even Aria and a every other tsundeRie character
As a side note:
>No Horizon characters
You make me sad, anon
Are actually retarded? They got rid of most of the infinites in RE-Act, the rest are gone now as of 1.07 Actress Again: CC
dfc will actually be decent as the devs make fighting games, who knows who the fuck is making j-stars.. and aside from the character pandering what the actual game mechanics are
>hello jojo asb part 2
>Three fucking characters from SAO alone
Fuck you Japan. Your insufferable love for this shit series poisons everything.
I dunno celty's aesthetic is of spooky shadow person is used way too much in vidya, whereas shizou could be quite cool
Wait. Are Tomoka's enemy-dribbling moves, grabs?
Is she a grappler?
Taiga and Shana are the only TsundeRies that belong to Dengeki, anon-
>not brought to consoles
I thought Taiga is just a palette swap for Shana.
It is the most popular Dengeki franchise. What did you expect?
It's because Asuna couldn't simply be an assist.
If she was the assist, the game wouldn't need Leefa. And then there would just be 2 SAO characters.
Oh. The way you phrased it was a bit confusing. 12 is probably a good guess, but it could be more.
licencing will be a problem with all the different ips, whereas almost no one in the US own the rights to aquapazza eroge
>impying sega will negotiate the rights
Is Taiga actually in the game? I'm not seeing her in OP's list
I dont know about you guys, but I want Dmitry vatler the gay Russian snake vampire
Oh god please, playing as Enju or Rentarou would be amazing.
There shouldn't be a thing called "assist-only" in a fucking fighting game. Every character should be playable in full, or not added at all. This game company is a fucking disgrace..
King of Fighters 2000 (?) had Extra Strikers that and Marvel VS Capcom had Special Partner.
would guess console will have ~14 (8 month port)
>playing as Enju or Rentarou would be amazing.
You and me, anon. Especially Enju and if she made it, that will be three awesome lolis for playable characters.
>No Baron Ashura
Victory Vs will be shit in my eyes forever just from all the shit it lacks
Heck why is there no Jotaro even?
>There shouldn't be a thing called "assist-only" in a fucking fighting game.
Why? Because you say so? It's been done many times before. It's a good way to bring in some extra fanservice.
actually don't have a problem with kirito though he already looks too similar to asuna, anyways i trust french bread has a good eye for which characters can be potentially good/fun characters instead of hamfisting in ones that have barely anything to work with, which imo is more important than 'i like this manly man put him in'
>Hayate and Hinagiku assist
There's Ladd but that would be like having two Shizuos and no Izayas
it's pretty popular on toonami too
hard to figure out how she plays from footage alone, lots of things 'being summoned' and her ball shot isn't really a projectile
was a bit disappointed she didn't have dribbling moves but atleast does it to the opponent
isn't she also assist/healer class in sao.. perfect
I'm pretty sure French Bread didn't choose all the characters on their own. Dengeki themselves probably had a big say in it, and Sega might have influenced it, too.
mentioned in recent stream that's it sofar along with pai (akira's assist probabl)
Don't have the article on hand but there was an interview and it was something along the lines of Dengeki saying FB could put in whoever but would prefer the more popular ones; and FB said they wanted to look for ones that could work.
Sega would probably only push their characters (only VF; 20th anniversary, no Valkryrias/etc)
Plenty of games have assist only characters. Learn a thing or two about fighters
Wait what? You mean like from Mazinger? Mazinger isn't a jump series.
>Heck why is there no Jotaro even?
Because Johnathan and Joseph are a thousand times better. Fuck off Jotarofag.
Shizuo is the only one I can envision actually fighting other than Celty. Makes sense.
If they REALLY wanted maximum fujobux, they would have used this faggot right here.
Why is Sega so shit?
wait for the console version
Still waiting for Baccano, Black Bullet, and Horizon.
>Normal Impact Skill: “Steal” is also very powerful. Dribbles towards the opponent, turns them into ball and starts to dribble where she’s standing. Does a ground pass after a bit of waiting, but if you press the button Tomoka takes a stand and jumps. Press the button when she is on top height. If the timing is right, Tomoka gets wings on her back and more damage is dealt. If you miss the timing, you can go for the same Airi follow-up.
Shizuo is more popular than Izaya among fujoshis. Reason why he's even there is because of his popularity in the first place, just like the rest of the chosen characters.
Not that I'm complaining about any of them.
Izaya is actually a competent fighter.
Its just that being a competent fighter in DRRR means jack-shit when all his other competitions are:
A girl possessed by an evil katana that consumes love
An immortal fairy that uses a scythe made from her own shadows
A former ex-spetznaz ex-kgb russian sushi chef who can punch a tank to shreds
and motherfucking Shizuo
>Not anime yet
Yeah not going to happen.
Maybe if they make a sequel.
Part of the gimmick to these games is to stuff in as many familiar characters as possible to get people to buy it. (hence why there are THREE motherfucking SAO characters), so it's a pretty easy sale.
How can THAT be? The reason Shizuo even became popular with fujoshis is because he's paired with Izaya in they gay head canons.
simon isn't a chef, just a waiter/ advertiser
It's already set for April, wouldn't be surprised if they put in a support character from it.
Of course they're paired together. But Shizuo is the stronger one, the more forceful one, you know, the seme. So, he's more favored.
Can you not read boy?
Also they probably wouldn't add something from a series that doesn't even have an anime yet. That won't make them a lot of money.
Whoa whoa whoa, wait. I thought all Touma did was block. At 2:56, he can jump out and punch people?!
It's not. Izaya is more popular, especially among fujoshi.
It will shortly after this game comes out though. Putting in the tried and true big names is all well and good but in games like this they usually throw in a couple lower tier characters they're looking to bump up to the A list with some cross promotion. Like Marvel did with Rocket Racoon in MvC3
Really, it's a bit hard to believe that Dengeki gave them complete free rein.
They added a forward assist.
You can punch Kirito after all!
But it does do damage if they're close enough, and it hits pretty hard too.
That should be toei's
So where is the grappler character?
well i can only imagine the weren't as stubborn to work with than say marvel (no xmen/venom/gambit/90s only the new stuff) because going by that there's strike the blood has no reps
lolidunk is closest?
FUCK YES. So I can actually punch people with him? Looks pretty damn useful too. Why is TouMAN so based?
why did they not use anyone from the disgaea series? It would still be a good game if thats all they used.
They'll add more eventually I believe.
Biri is going to rape Touma eventually, it's impossible to avoid.
Except, she'll have to face off against everyone else in TouMan's harem.
Oh boy, we space vampires now?
This can be avoided by tracking him to a back alley while he's being chased by drunken Skill-Out. Fry them, rape Touma.
The only one who will know is Crowley, who already floats in his own semen, he has no place to judge.
Disgaea and Tales aren't actually Dengeki franchises. They don't own them. They only published adaptations of them.
How can she rape Touma if she can't even beat him?
so you're telling me it isn't real? Well there go my dreams.
She wrecks the buildings on all sides and seals them in.
At that point he'll either be raped or have to punch her, and Touma won't punch Biri just to save his virginity.
He's gotten out of worse jams.
But he destroyed a perfect world and indirectly killed a bunch of people so that he could return to his own reality.
On the topic of the game, what the fuck is up with a lot of the characters who should be playable being assists and vice versa?
Still won't punch Biri though.
Not even Touma can break Miki's illusions.
>All those illusions
He'll break them, along with Berry Berry's heart
I'd love it if Touma punched her. Hopefully hard enough to fracture her skull.
I hope Koujo makes it in.
I'd give everyone the F.
When is this game supposed to come out?
Only 8 characters till now?
What is this, Aksys?
