I really like the roster, it has a charm like Tatsunoko vs Capcom with some odds but being a solid roster so far. Since my knowledge in Konami is just Metal Gear, Castlevania and the not-so-Konami-owned Yu-Gi-Oh I can't tell too much about that side but at least in terms of Capcom having characters like Tessa or Asura is already a big W. In terms of what I would like to see in the future a third Castlevania rep in the form of either Shanoa, Soma or Jonathan & Charlotte would be great, a third Metal Gear rep would be cool too either Liquid, Ocelot, Gray Fox or even the everyone's favorite senator Armstrong or the best brazilian Jetstrea Sam, from Capcom I like Vergil but maybe he works more has a DLC, a third SF rep would be acceptable (my election would be Sakura or Akuma but a different rep like Rashid, G or other would be cool too), more Mega Man (particulary from Battle Network/Starforce) would be heavily acceptable and in terms of franchises not repped yet I would like to see Akira from Rival Schools, either Nina or Ryu from breath of Fire and someone from Sengoku Basara.Discussion: How do you feel about our roster so far?
Now that our roster is 50% complete, how are we feeling about this whole thing? Do you like our roster, or is it lacking? What additions do you like? What additions don't you care for? What can we add going forward to make this roster better? Whatever opinions you have, now's the time to voice them. I'll be back with an actual job tomorrow, but in the meantime, lemme know your thoughts on our character lineup!
Evil Ryu is usually despicted has another character, he counts?I agree with everyone's sentiments here. I think we have a pretty bangin roster so far and I love how we have something closer in vibes to Tatsunoko or SvC rather than Marvel. Not that I have any issues with the MvC roster, mind you, but I feel like a lot of fan-made Versus rosters tend to fall into the trap of trying to emulate what Marvel did on the Capcom side without considering the unique matchups, which leads to them not having a super unique identity. Some of my personal favorite surprise choices have been Pastel, Trucy, and Busuzima. All choices that I never would've considered when I started this project, but all inspired choices that fit in perfectly and give our roster a unique flavor. I do think we're missing a few foundational series on Konami's end, namely Suikoden and Bemani, but I'm certain we're gonna knock em out of the way soon. Overall, fantastic roster! Can't wait to see what we end up once everything's wrapped up!
Anyway, I think it's time to close discussion. I would've moved on sooner, but something came up and I wasn't able to get around to it. Anyway, onto the next job!
Job #38: Submit an alternate outfit for any character on our roster
This one's gonna be pretty simple, so I won't spend too long on the details. A while back, we added character customization as one of our big single-player features. I said we were gonna do jobs related to customization eventually, and that day is today! There's other components to customization that I wanna get around to exploring eventually, but outfits seemed like the easiest thing to tackle right now. For each company, you can submit up to one outfit each for up to three characters, making for a total of up to six outfits per submissions. You don't have to be super descript with your submissions. At the absolute bare minimum, include an image of the outfit, what character it's for, and where it comes from. And unlike most jobs, everything that gets submitted will be added automatically. The only thing I ask is that for right now, no extra characters as outfits. That's a bit too drastic for what we're going for right now. If you have a question about whether or not something is eligible, don't be afraid to ask.
Alrighty, that's it for me! Let's see what outfit ideas yall have for our wacky cast of characters.
Yeah, I'll allow it. If it's another form of a character we already have and their skill sets are basically the same, I don't have a problem with it. I was moreso trying to prevent something among the lines of submitting, say, Ken as an alt for Ryu.Evil Ryu is usually despicted has another character, he counts?

Job #8: Edward Falcon from Power Stone
View attachment 348162
Edward Falcon is the main face of Power Stone, a beloved duology of 3D arena fighters by Capcom that were on arcades and, more famously, the Dreamcast.
Falcon is an adventurer from the town of Londo (yes, Londo), who's searching for the legendary Power Stones after hearing about them in an ancient family legend. He's also skilled in boxing, and is all around just a cool dude who loves adventure. I think he has a sick design and I feel Power Stone is sorely underrepresented in Vs. games - still zero playable appearances in Mahvel or SNK or Tatsunoko. Zero. Zilch. Nada. Nothing but cameos. I think it's time we fix that, and Falcon is someone who I feel would be a great pick! Though I'd also like to give a shoutout to Rouge, who's probably the most popular Power Stone character and actually has been considered for these kinds of games in the past and is just Also Very Cool - I think she should be put forward someday too. But I went for Falcon!
As for how could he fight, he has his aforementioned boxing skills, plus the ability to throw some explosive punches and the wide variety of items featured in Power Stone. He also has his Power Change form, which he transforms into after obtaining the Power Stones, that gives him some more firepower in battle, being able to fire out missiles and do a cool Shinryuken thing. He's cool!!!!
The assists works quite different here.Job 40:
Ghosts N Goblins Assist: Firebrand
View attachment 356085
A recurring character from GnG franchise and he is a demon, who stars in his own 2 games that are apart from main series.
When summoned, he would swoop at opponent and breath fire at it, resulting a burning damage to opponent.
I did make a example on his moveset back when submitting assists as a mechanic. You can have a permission to add it on your original post if you want.Whoops, lemme change real quick.
EDIT: Oh, didn't need to.
- Light - Firebrand spits a fast, yet weak fireball straight forward from it's mouth.
- Medium - Firebrand flies into the air, summoning a group of three Blue Killers that float towards the opponent and attack with their small claws. Based on how Red Arremer King attacks Arthur in Ghouls n' Ghosts and how it summons demon enemies (especially Puchi/Petite Devils) in SNK vs. Capcom: SvC Chaos.
- Heavy - Firebrand hovers into the air and performs an angled-downwards diving attack in an arc to the other side. Based on Demon Missile's heavy version in MvC3 and one of the attacks Red Arremers can perform in the series.
- Super - Firebrand uses the Crest of Infinity to transform into a purple Ultimate Gargoyle and then floats into the air, releasing out a blue multi-hitting, dragon-shaped stream of flames by breathing it from it's mouth while sweeping it up. Based on his Dark Fire Hyper Combo in Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and the Dark Flare attack in Demon's Crest, which Firebrand acquires when unlocking the Legendary Gargoyle form.
