I think Terry, Mai, and Athena definitely makes the most sense here if they did go for a KoF style team layout

I still am thinking it'll just be Terry though. I wouldn't mind Mai coming later however
Yeah, and besides, unless the Psycho Soldiers team gets sneaked in later, the KoF team plan is bust since Kyo got deconfirmed.

On another note, I got around to buying Real Bout Fatal Fury 2 on switch, and am trying to pick it up

Mai's arcade mode ending is actually hilarious

When sari said some people might prefer only her jiggle physics im just thinking why do people only like a Female Character for the jiggles why do they even want to look at the character or play as them. When i watched the mai theme from a FF game they someone said Im a Mai guy just for the jiggles and that is stupid so yeah They should use A more covered up costume so people dont say things like that. Just like if you like the Character for their Personality or Moveset backstory Ect. Then you like the character.

I find hard to think they would integrate the team mechanic from KoF games for Terry. I mean, I have no problem with that, I would love that and it would be super cool. But if that was the case I think we should knew it at this point. I think if Terry has a tag team mechanic Sakurai would at least tease it in some way in the reveal trailer.
Yeah, Mai didn't appear and that was a bit strange, but I thought maybe Mai didn't show up for his provocative design? Maybe it's a stupid reason but I don't know.

What I can see is Mai (or other characters) appearing in some moves of Terry, but I wouldn't bet on that. I personally would choose Kyo instead of Athena if we're gonna get a trio, btw.

If I'm wrong I'd be the first one to be happy about it haha.

I could very well see a team mechanic being something that Sakurai would implement; it would be nice to have another character that has a style reflective of Pokemon Trainer's.

It would pay homage to the KoF games and distinguish Terry from the Shotos. I also thought it was weird how neither Mai nor Atheena appeared in Terry's trailer since they have a big impact in SNK and are fan favorites. Perhaps the tag team could feature an assist option along with down+b to switch out characters. There's a slim chance that they could be part of his tag team if they decide to such a system, but time will tell.

I agree. a trio mechanic would be amazing. Maybe it's a hot take but, I'd rather get only Terry if he's gonna get a good and polished moveset. Nothing against other SNK character of course, but I mean: three characters would be a lot of work for the time they have between DLC fighter and DLC fighter, so I fear the possibility of an uninspired moveset and mediocre implementation of the characters and their abilities if they go this way due to time constraints.
Maybe Sakurai and his team can pull off three characters and a trio mechanic with the time they have, but I think it's difficult.

I don't blame you at all, man. I think a polished up Terry would be good enough, and that actually could happen. But the showcase was filmed two days after Hero was released, so that time-frame could have given them enough time to make two other characters to fit with Terry.

I'm doing a bit of reaching here, but if you take a look at Terry's positioning on the banner, it looks like there's enough space to fit at least one or two more characters.


Even his render doesn't seem complete; it looks like their could be others accompanying him just like with PT.



I wouldn't put too much hope into it, but it could definitely work. It would give us the opportunity to see another PT-styled character in action and would differentiate him from the street fighter characters (and other DLC's for that matter).

I can see 1 or 2 characters where Terry is in the banner. The render, while I would say that I think that the pose is a bit strange (at least to me), I don't think he feels 'incomplete' there.

I hope I'm wrong hey, 3 characters would be ****in' amazing, but I honestly don't think Mai would be one of the 2 surprise characters, mostly for his design, and yeah Sakurai could change his design but I think that the changes wouldn't be little like Bayonetta.
My ideal team would be Terry, Mai and Kyo I think. If we get some sort of team mechanic I feel Kyo must be in, I mean, he's the main character of King of Fighters and the mechanic we're talking about comes from these games. Also I think Kyo deserves to be in a crossover.
