Though it's probably just cutscene only.
It's possible, though if that were the case, when DLC for the Universe Survival Arc comes out (Fingers crossed!), Then she'd get her pink tracksuit. And 17 would get his park ranger outfit. While we're talking about the cutscenes though, how come 18 still has the outfit she has introduced in? Didn't that outfit get destroyed?

2. Nope. Character select screens can be changed easily and current builds are only as small as they are because of visual design for public and press events. We already have 13 characters announced and the game comes out early 2018, which usually means March - June for Namco.
1. It's my personal opinion. I think his moves and appearence doesn't stand out as much as some other candidates for the unfilled spots.

2. I know, this is why I said "in case if it's the final size" or something like.

So for $140, the CE definitely looks worth it, minus $60 for the game that leaves you $80 and the normal mini statue goes for that much so an exclusive colouring on top? Seems worth. The art cards aren't worth much you can pick them up for a couple hundred yen, and a steelbook case is cool, but you would be making most your money back with the statue. Not sure what the re-sale value would be but I am sure most of you aren't bothered by that.

This game is just too awesome, but Androids shouldn't have an aura when charging or dashing. Though it's not really a problem but they could easily fix it.
I can't wait for the beta, I really hope I will be in as I signed up on the EU link a few hours ago. I hope the invites will be first come first serve.

I've gotta say, after that latest trailer, I'm starting to come around to the game's story mode. It definitely could be interesting and might even take some unexpected turns.

I'm also fine with 17 being a support character for 18. If they couldn't find ways to make the characters stand out from one another gameplay wise, this is a good enough alternative.

I think if the gameplay is good, who cares if the story sucks. The Shin Budokai games had other things wrong with them besides the bad writing in the story.

Never thought there would come the day where I would say this, but Krillin is definitely one of the characters I'm looking forward the most to play with. He seems to be a lot of fun!

I love how C18 has combos with C17 and Krillin.

It sucks C17 seems to be just her assist for now. If this was before Universe Survival arc I would be okay with it, but now he got a lot of new fans including me. And thanks to Super they have more material to give him a more unique moveset.

-Alternate Costumes-

Even though it's just recolors they are doing some great stuff:

I actually like one of C18's alternate costumes more than the original one.
Krillin's red one matches the one he had in DB.
Blue Cell like the Cell jrs. and Golden Cell had to be a thing.
Goku's second one has the manga colors. It's a shame the blue one doesn't have his EOZ gi colors.
Vegeta's second one is not far from his ROF outfit color. Hopefully they give a gray version to SSB vegeta.

So, I signed up at about 3PM, because I forgot. But I could still have a chance since all the participants are being basically drawn out of a hat, right?

Here's hoping it's a big hat.

I love how Kuririn and Piccolo play.

The great thing about this game is it doesn't need a huge roster of cool outsider characters. because the devs are making the bog standard characters so much more exciting to play. I never play as Kuririn in the games, and now I can't wait to get my hands on him.

Here's hoping Yamcha and Tenshinhan don't get left out. Once they're in everything else is gravy.

I'm serious. I don't really know how closed betas work, so I was hoping someone would know.

No one knows since they didn't say(at least as far as I've seen), but it's almost always random selection—or close enough to it. First come first served is very rare.

To be honest I could see kid Trunks and Goten being a tag team like 17/18 now, and it would be an easy way to include them without taking up slots.

That would actually be pretty cool. They could also have a timed transformation where they fuse into Gotenks.

A Goten and Trunks tag team is a good idea but I think Gotenks as a whole is just the more valuable character. I also think the issue of dev resources comes into play. To have Goten and Trunks together with a Gotenks transformation would require three sets of animations. Just having Gotenks would only require one, and even if they added SSJ3 as a transformation it would still take less work. And I just think Goten and Trunks fusing would be a sweet intro lol.

What the 18/17 thing makes me really excited about is the potential for the Ginyu Force. Play as Ginyu, had Gurd's timefreeze as an assist, bring in Batta and Jheese for one super and have Recoome's big ass mouth beam as another.

I'm very impressed by Krillin and 18/17. They both seem exceptionally fun to play as. Now I'm hoping that Videl makes the cut among other favs of mine. I know she would be great in this game.
