    Project X Zone looks good there.^^ Not to mention the cross system that allows us to use Cross system to increase the damage greatly.^^

    Im not complaining but why isnt Sonic in here?…. Is the guy who decides what characters to put in the same who did it for MvC3? No Megaman in that :…

    • gundamfan

      sonic is not all that popular in japan compared to the states from what i heard so it makes sense he was not announced yet or  gets in at all (remember this game is made for the japanese market).

      • RmanX1000

        But still, when you say SEGA, Sonic is usually the first one to pop into anyones head. But i do understand your point.

        • Dude Don’t worry about Sonic, he is in yet but he will be, this game is following the Namco X Capcom game, that means there are going to be maybe like it, as in the game had four worlds collide, being the Demon World (Morrigan and other demons live here) Real World (Ryu and characters like resident evil live here) future world (Mega Man and Kos Mos like characters) and finally a Fantasy World (Where Tales of, and Kolona lived) I think there was also a Inaccurate Past World (Where in Namco X Capcom had Sould Calibur characters). So they showed a few, besides Arthur himself wasn’t revealed but one of his generic enemies shows up, so probably Arthur well show up.

         And Zombie Revenge & Dynamite Deka is??  What a ridiculous excuse

  • It could be awesome if they give him his other “crest” versions as attacks :) . I wonder if Capcom will ever release Demon´s Crest on the virtual console…i LOVED that game so much.

  • Wow, this flying red guy’s getting into more fame recently~!

  • Nicolas Vasquez

     ahh demon crest, from back there in the day almost everything with the capcom logo was pore gold.

    • Masengan

      I can hear the little music too when you mention that.

  • RoF’s Leanne doing her thang in the Nintendo Direct presentation video <3

    I do wonder if this will just be a regular Red Arremer, or if it will be FIREBRAND, as in the demon that actulaly once had enough power to take over the world when he assembled all the crests but decided “Eh that’s boring, LEVEL 1-CHALLENGE ALL THE WAY!” and then dumped them. I’d like to play him as a character again, not so much just fight generic Red Arremers.

    • Fidelis

      I was just about to type this same comment. I feel it’s going to be a generic red arremer because Firebrand’s lack of communication skills will make it hard to set him up in the story as a boss battle.

      Unless something crazy happens and Demetri, Dante, and Morrigan can understand demon speak

      • Göran Isacson

        Exactly- I know that Firebrand has all of zero lines (that I can remember) in the original games, even in Demons Crest, but that didn’t mean he didn’t have CHARACTER. Anyone who can be beaten down, then climb back up to be the top of the demon world and then willingly give up all the power he’s assembled just so he can do it all over again has character enough to drive a story… but yeah, since we don’t really have lines for him nobody seems to bother developing him.

        I’m hoping he maybe becomes a rival to Dane and Demitri- I can imagine that a demon like Firebrand, who is all about hardcore fighting and simply living for the thrill of besting an opponent, probably wouldn’t get along too well with a bunch of hedonists like Demetri and Morrigan… but he’d find Dante fun as hell, if you’ll pardon the pun.

    Men there’s no way I could fight Firebrand he’s to awesome.
