Hazama / Terumi was
Code:
the green haired dude in the True End path.

You are thinking of Tsubaki and Makoto. Tsubaki sounds like an able addition though, simply because of how the True End played out. The job she was given implies that she can fight in some way at least. Dunno about Makoto though. I know Teach Me Ms. Litchi aren't canon, but it made it sound like Makoto could be a could candidate to be a fighter.

And I have a feeling that if they tried to implement Jubei, they'd have to do it like Kliff, and just give him the whole flashback thing. But I agree for the most part, that adding him would probably be difficult to work out.

Who knows though, I'm more convinced of them just adding more Unlimited versions myself. :P

Shiguma mentioned on Facebook that the EU console version will include new characters.

Well, I guess this has stopped my idea of importing the PS3 version. That's good.

That version is set to drop Jan 2010.

ARE YOU KIDDING ME!? ARGH!!

Like Gen I too go with the unlimited versions for EU release. Better to have the game imported than to wait till 2010 if you ask me...

You don't announce "new characters" and then just make it different versions of old characters. I suspect they will make unlimited versions of all characters, but I doubt that will be the end of it.

You all will weep when I beat you senseless with Terumi. :P

I'll help out on this one. It's character changes and two new characters. V-13 is now Lamabada for plot reasons.


TLDR: new moves, new balances, two new characters, new system mechanics



Quote from: stunedge;463462
System

- You can stock up to 2 bursts
- Burst no longer have damage penalty
- You start with one burst and get one extra burst next round if you lose the round
- When regular gold burst hits opponent, opponent will bounce high and able to combo from there (no more Guard break by gold burst)
- Life bar still goes into DANGER if barrier meter is running out

- All AH unlocked
- You can use AH when you need one more round to win (not the final round of the match) with 100% meter and opponent's life is below certain percentage, character shines in white when it is possible to activate AH

- Guard Primer(? ガードプライマー) system replaces Guard Libra
- Guard Primer length changes for every characters, meter goes down if the character blocks the specific move that breaks the guard (e.g. blocking Λ-11-'s 214D will let meter go down by 2)
- Guard Primer length
11   Tager
06   Hakumen Bang
05   Jin Noel Litchi Tsubaki
04   Ragna Rachel Arakune Taokaka Carl
03   Λ-11-

- Heat Gauge goes up automatically from the beginning of the round (I think this is just for loketest to make people can try supers easier)



Appearance
- Projectile such as Arakune's Bee and Rachel's flog has a circle around them, easier to identify
- better animation
- new effect, new voice
- life bar turns red when it is extremely low
- New pictures for character select screen





-  Λ-11- Lambda

Tager gets his revenge!  I love his new changes, and can't wait to beat the tar out of people with him.

Oh, and the other character was confirmed, it's Hazama.

Interesting changes.  Wish those were coming out in America.  I'd hope they would change Litchi a little more than that though.  I love the astral heat changes.  That's how it should have been from the very beginning- not the round 3 bullshit.

 Litchi is fine. Your combos got a lot stronger. Personally the only thing I feel she needs is less proration on some of her moves so that her damage output isn't so damn low (outside the corner). 

Yeah though, I can't wait to see the rise of TAGER.

Remember that Astral Heats are basically supposed to be Fatalities; they're fatal.  So it doesn't make sense for you to "Kill" your opponent, then have them there in the next round.  They did this with Guilty Gear too; in the original game if you did an IK attack it not only ended the round, it ended the entire match, because the attack was fatal and killed the opponent.  That mechanic too was later changed, and it basically made the IK's into a joke attack(Which is how it should be, really, since Guilty Gear basically became a match of "How to I most effectively spam my IK?" until they changed it.)

Astral Heats aren't really even in the game as anything useful anyway.  Their strict requirements were meant to make them into a way to humiliate an opponent, not as any kind of gameplay device to be used seriously.  And they're still going to be that way, requiring 100% Heat (not likely to happen in a decent match) and for your opponent to be an inch away from losing anyway.  I really don't see why there's a fuss being made over them AT ALL, or why it's being changed like that.

And I'm pretty much 100% sure we'll be getting these changes.  There's too big a demand for them not to.  I mean, as much as they're touting that it's a European exclusive, Japan is still going to get it first as an arcade machine.  We're getting it, no worries.

I do realize they are a way to humiliate the opponent.  It became obvious (me not being a GG player) when, like you mentioned, I noticed how none of them are useful in any real way.  Like getting on Litchi's pole.  Gee I wonder what she's going to do?!

"We're getting it, no worries" as in DLC or a regular release?

That's ultimately what I'd like to see Takezo.  Litchi's damage output being a little better.  I imagine that might put her corner combos into a too powerful state, but it's not like the other characters can't take 50% of your life anyway in a single combo.

There's no way this could be DLC without it being a full-on downloaded game.  With various characters getting whole new attacks and things like attack timing, # of frames and hitboxes being altered, the original data on the disc would be useless.  You have to remember that there's a LOT going on here, despite the fact that on the surface, it doesn't really look like it.
