Answer: The top two.

Riccardo Martini, a 26 year old from Italy who is a "problem child" in the Aces Squad, and Sakura Ayanokoji, an 18 year old with a slim figure and giant bazooka, are Nomura’s Gunslinger Stratos 2 characters. Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike and Code Geass mecha designer Akira Yasuda made the two characters below. Sarah Tendoji is 17 years old and has a big sister type personality (I guess this a riff on the Onechanbara series?). Despite the fact that she has blonde hair and blue eyes, Sarah is completely Japanese and skilled using pistols.  Tsukasa Suo is 19 years old and the genius leader of a military special forces. He has a strong sense of justice and a charismatic personality.


Gunslinger Stratos 2 is slated for release in spring 2014.
