With all the threads regarding who we want from SFA, SF3, and SF4, I feel like there should be a bit for the extended/possible universe characters from SFEX. As much as Capcom complains that these characters are owned by Akira, I feel that they might put some effort in regaining the license if there is a proven interest, like they did with UMvC3 Strider.
Excluded Characters and why:
-Area: C.Viper does the “Gadget Fighter” gimmick better
-Pullum Purna: Most of her moves are rip-offs of other SF characters
-Darun Mister: Very similar to Hakan, who already exists
Only being able to vote once (though voted for D.Dark) and no Area makes me sad. Well, that and excluding Area and Pollum but putting in Kairi who’s really just a Shoto ripoff is kind of amusing. Of course, with that being said, if we DO get an EX character in, chances are it’ll be him knowing our luck and considering Decapre happened.
Never played the game, but always liked the way D. Dark looked and it seems like he has a cool backstory. But yea, you should have allowed all characters to be voted on. Just b/c they’re similar to current characters doesn’t mean they should be excluded. Capcom would have been creative enough to make them play uniquely assuming any of this was at all a possibility.
I’d like Cracker Jack more if his gameplay wasn’t so terrible. Literally everything he does is unsafe…
I agree with the soul calibur part although I still believe she fits in SF, but you can’t possibly believe that she has a bad fighting style. She uses a staff for crying out loud, specializing in Bojutsu. She would make a great addition to the main cast.
I guess she’s a little too similar to Makoto in the sense of origin and personality, but they’d make for some great rivals. Plus I love her fighting style and special moves.
If people were able to understand that Juli, Juni, and Juri are all 3 entirely different characters (and that Juri is entirely separate and NOT a doll), I think they would be able to tell Makoto and Hokuto apart.
Skullomania, every time. He was a lot of fun aesthetically and fun to play as (loved all the versions of SkulloDream), also he brought in a Tokusatsu flair to SF. Considering how big it is in Japan, I’m surprised Capcom didn’t do anything with the concept before Arika. I could easily see them bringing the core concept of the character into Street Fighter, but changing him up enough to not make Arika sue.
