  • Highasthesky

    Aizen was forgotten. All according to plan i bet.

    • subsamuel01

      Aizen has been confirmed playable.

      • Highasthesky

        I’m aware of that, i mean in this article.

      • Kaihedgie

        I didn’t see him

    • Saphiren
    • Göran Isacson

      And then when he’ll be remembered? THAT TOO was all according to his plan. Even if it actually complicates his situation and doesn’t really offer him any advantages what so ever. ALL IS PLAN.

  • TheExile285

    I really hope Aizen doesn’t end up as support. Also, where’s my Yoh & Saitama SJ! >:V

    • subsamuel01

      Aizen is playable, Hisoka is sadly support only.

  • Kaihedgie

    Just for those who need a reminder: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eIb36Qb1kSk

    • http://www.youtube.com/user/xxHiryuuxx Tohsaka

      ‘I have more power in my thumb than you have in your entire body.’

      I still love him throwing down with Yusuke. It’s still hard for me to picture the voice actor to Toguro being the very same as Handsome Jack from BL2.

      • Kaihedgie

        Hell, I can’t imagine Yusuke without Justin Cook behind him. That’s one of the reasons why I’m waitin’ for a localization. I would love to see at least some interaction between Cook and Bosch

        • WolfDuo

          Localization seems pretty slim. I don’t know if you remember D.O.N stadium. That game was similar to this and it also never got localised.

          • Kaihedgie

            I do, but at the time, 4Kids was the one who localized One Piece

        • Pinwheel

          Don’t bother waiting. It isn’t getting localized. Even on the slim chance that it would, it isn’t getting English voices. If they don’t have enough bravery to put English voices on a One Piece game and go with a PSN only release, this has even worse odds.

          Not even considering the licensing hell here.

          • Kumiko Akimoto

            I’d be afraid that they would mess up the voices any how
            I loved yu yu’s dub but the whole roster isn’t yu yu.
            Some doesn’t even have english voice actors so I’d rather not walk into that land mind just to have yusuke sounding like yusuke

          • Pinwheel

            Even with localization, it wouldn’t get dubbed. If a One Piece game doesn’t have a big enough appeal for one, this absolutely wouldn’t.

          • Kumiko Akimoto

            One piece is terrible so i don’t know why that’s being mentioned as a “well look at this they couldn’t do this so they can’t do that”
            It’s safe to not dub anime games that are only made for the fans.
            But jojo has been over before game wise.

          • Pinwheel

            Your opinion of a series isn’t the reasoning I’m using. I never mentioned the quality of One Piece, so whatever you think of it isn’t relevant. It’s got enormous popularity worldwide, but the Pirate Warrior games still only got subtitled releases.

            That shows the confidence the developers had in the title. With the amount of licensing this game has and the cost of that alone, dubs really aren’t an option to be considered if something as popular as One Piece didn’t have that big of a draw for it. The game won’t come over to America without a doubt, but dubbed? Not even in consideration.

          • Kumiko Akimoto

            The point of that was it would be a risk to give a full dumb or even a full release to something like that.
            Monetary wise.

        • http://www.youtube.com/user/xxHiryuuxx Tohsaka

          I gotta agree here but I gotta agree with the additional comments – localization would probably be slim.

          But there are always cons and there are always ways to dream. You’re right that it would be pretty awesome. And that dub for YYH was probably a shining example of how a dub can be considered superior to the sub. They had a lot of fun with it.

  • MaximDualBlade

    Hisoka is sexy! He will have a lot of fun with the opponents he will find her and there is Gon too if he wants to be yaoi XD Or does anyone remember the shining erection when he sees Gon XD
    Even if toguro is considerably weak by the end of the manga/anime he gave an excellent fight with Yusuke.
    Excited for this game

    • Jiayon Thorpe

      You mean this?

    • abysswalker

      Your comment scared me a little bit :S I don’t remember anything like that so I will give you the benefit of the doubt as I wouldn’t like to check it myself.

      • MaximDualBlade

        manga chapter 106(just checked it) and anime chapter 35(did not check this one) . The manga one is about chrollo, but there all who have read or watched Hunter X Hunter know that Hisoka has a thing for Gon, like guro/yaoi.
        By the way I think Hisoka is a really cool character overall

        • abysswalker

          Guro! Oh no, now I’m even more scared. It’s been like 5 years since the last time I watched HxH but maybe I never really paid much attention, I mean Hisoka always gave me that slightly sick vibe but not like that. Guess I’ll never revisit that series.

          • MaximDualBlade

            XD I know you’re joking. I cannot believe you reject a series just for what a person on a forum told you XD

    • Rayhan PromisedGallery

      Lol, Toguro’s case is the same as Frieza. They are awesome villain, but counted as weak because after their fight, the manga went into ridiculous raw power level instead of technique.

      • Kumiko Akimoto

        I don’t know why anyone would count him as weak

      • KnifeAndFork

        YYH never went crazy with the power levels. It was more a level of skill…

  • Jiayon Thorpe

    Hisoka Support?

  • abysswalker

    :O interesting, though I would rather Hisoka as the playable character. I always liked his combat style although my favorite card fighter will always be Oswald from King of Fighters XI.

  • Jiayon Thorpe

    Hisoka. Support?

  • Rinne111

    and Chrollo Lucifer as well=)

  • DanielGearSolid

    Toguro plucked a guys brains out of his skull

    • Kaihedgie

      And kicked a guy’s head off while breaking through tektite

  • God

    WTF JAPAN?! Hisoka is only a support character?! I’m gonna have a serious discussion with Kami-sama

    • ivanchu77

      Maybe it´s because we are getting Meruem or Pitou instead :) (crosses fingers)

    • Gemlit

      Maybe it’s because the mangaka of HxH wants to personally expand on Hisoka’s capabilities.

    • http://s1.zetaboards.com/Espada_of_Alexandria/index/ konpon568

      Yeah, you do that. And while you’re at it, ask him about Kenchiro, Yoh and Bo-BoBo, as well! OH! And that guy from Hoshin Engi! What was his name again…? Ah, right. Taikobo! Ask about him first, then the others I mentioned!!

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/xxHiryuuxx Tohsaka
  • http://fr.twitch.tv/Nhatalya Aleksandrina

    Well, well. I’m still waiting for “him”. I swear, he better be in this game. ಥ_ಥ

    • LuciferD666

      I second

    • Learii

      I suppose to be the first one because that was my idea at the first place XD

  • DivinePhoenix69

    And yet again Akainu doesn’t get mentioned along with Madara, Shishio and Frieza *grumble grumble*.

    Anyways although i would have preferred Sensui as the YYH villian, i understand why they went with Toguro so i’m not complaining. I don’t follow HxH so i can’t say much on Hisoka but the more the merrier, even if he is just a support character. Playable Aizen has me hyped though.

    • Rayhan PromisedGallery

      there’s no Aizen in both article either.

  • Detrimont

    Maybe the playable HxH villian(if there is one) will be Meruem

    • WolfDuo

      I’d imagine it being Chrollo over Meruem. Just because Chrollo has been seen in the anime more and been actulay seen fighting.
      If they use Meruem, their essentialy spoiling some of his skills, which are going to be shown in the anime in the next upcomming months.

      • Detrimont

        maybe, but now that i think about it, none of those two work, it’s been awhile since i’ve read that arc, but do Gon and Chrollo even fight? i think they only really interacted in the exchange… same goes from Meruem.. so maybe it should be Pitou(though the only way Gon even beat Pitou was with the nen contract)

      • MaximDualBlade

        They should add Netero has a playable character. Hunter X Hunter has no main antagonist for Gon, and Netero is too hot, I mean, you think only because I have no arms I cannot pray?
        If you are looking for a antagonist for Gon especifically, it has to be Nefelpitou. Also some Killua would be appreciated. Any of those 3 would make this fan happy.

  • MagisterXII

    Does anyone else agree that this makes Killua more likely to be a playable character? He is indeed both best friends and rivals with Gon. I’m disappointed that Hisoka isn’t playable, but he has more of a stalker/mentor role.

  • Byron Kerrison II

    Wouldn’t it be just hilarious if they made Ultimo playable instead of Yoh?

    I would just LMAO.

    • Hinataharem

      I would actually love Ultimo. He too cute. But Yoh too, of course

  • WolfDuo

    Oh yes~ Now just say Hiei and Killua and I’m golden!

  • Wake

    Something tells me that Toguro is going to give his 110%.

  • Learii

    nice choice how about more chars then rivals?

  • hazelnut1112

    Where the hell is Bobobo and Kinnikuman?

    • KnifeAndFork

      Where’s Hokuto no Ken and Dr Slump?

  • Shiroishi Hajime

    My current teams:
    Team 1: Joseph Joestar, Chitoge, Akainu
    Team 2: Koro-Sensei, Kuroko, Aizen

    My predictionn for the next reveals:
    Yoh, Hao, DIO and Girono
    Kenshiro, Jagi, Momotaro, Edajima Heihachi
    Yugi Moto (Support) Seto Kaiba (Support) Light Yagami (Support) L (Support)
    Saitama and Arale.
    More accuratly, this is what I hope, anything after is just more icing for me.

    • megaten666

      Kenshiro and Rei with Shin or Raou. Some Hokuto no Ken love wouldn’t hurt the game :D

      • Shiroishi Hajime

        Haha, I dunno if they would get that many, the most ever series seems to get is 3.I just think Jagi would be awesome to have in the game with his traps and whatnot. Him vs Joseph would be a good matchup.

    • Pinwheel

      Do you mean Giorno? I highly doubt he’s getting in. Dio makes sense though.

      • Shiroishi Hajime

        Yeah, my bad, but I can see Giovanna getting in, we already had some big surprises with these reveals. Although seeing some Steel Ball Run wouldn’t be too bad either. I dunno, I can just see us getting a Stand user or two.

  • wez

    COME ON BOBOBO

  • Kevin Schwarz

    Togoro? Just pointing out.
