  • I’m surprised at how psyched I am to finally be able to customize my character colors in this game. There’s gonna be some pretty goofy looking fighters this fall.

    • Rentekabond

      But you could already customize your colors in the initial release. The only difference is that you can share them in this one.

  • Göran Isacson

    I wonder if these new features will help Capcom ease new players into the game, or if this games sales have already been so hurt by all the bad publicity that the only customers left are the hardcore who will only scoff at anything that makes the games easier.  Because honestly, swiping the touchpad to change characters is a pretty cool featuer in my eyes, but I doubt its a feature that will be tried in future games what with how much bad PR this games gotten.

    On that note, how well HAS this game sold? Lower than expected, or did the controversy not show in the sales numbers?

    • A little lower than expected, but I don’t know if that was due to the controversy or more simply because of fighting game fatigue, what with so many publishers releasing so many of them in quick succession these past few years. 

      I love the idea of the touch screen inputs, too–I just don’t think it works very well when you have to do it on the same screen as where your characters are.

      What they had in Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition was perfect, in my opinion. It was on the lower 3DS screen, which made it so you could just move a thumb over real quick during regular play to knock out a special move. It also made you think less about how to do the moves and think more about when to do them.

        That does sound pretty sweet. Don’t know if you’ve played Kingdom Hearts 3D, but I think the lower screen could’ve benefited from displaying the list of commands there- I died so many times while moving my thumb from the upper joystick to the lower d-pad. And even when I figured out that you could set a short-cut with the “right” or “left” inputs on the d-pad, I still had the occasional thumbslip where I hit the “up”-input instead.

        • I don’t have the game, but I did try out the demo, and I can see how that could be annoying in the midst of KH’s frantic combat, yeah.

  • Safros9

    The graphics look very nice. And the game seems to run smoothly. Going to definitely try this out when it comes out. I wish they artstlyle was a bit better though, some characters look really weird with it, but I didn’t expect them to change it either.. so oh well.

  • Sardorim

    So wait… The customization is just recoloring them? That’s kinda disappointing.
