Some kickass new features were announced today. Not a lot of details, but screenshots on the Japanese blog site revealed Team Battles as one of the new features (as well as the return of lobbies). You can choose from 2v2, 3v3, or 4v4. It's unknown how this will be used yet. Could be something like Person from friend list a and b are on, so they group up together and fight another group one after the other like team tournaments play out in real life. Can also do random people as well. Badass as hell, but I'm waiting to see how it's implemented before I get too excited. Championship Edition sounded great on paper and while it is good, it's definitely not what everyone expected.
Japanese screenshots also showed "Game Card" and "Player Info" as well. There is no further info about this, but I'm thinking kind of like Blazblue. I'm sure there will be some restrictions on when you can view it, but if you can screen out certain characters when you get sick of playing them then sign me up.
