EU PSBlog: We asked Capcom for some answers. In reaction we did not only get some insights from game producer Ryota Niitsuma himself.
I don't even see how they fell from 56 characters, to around 36-40......WITh NO MEGAMAN! My main gripe is no strider....I can't take this game seriously..I'm gunna get it day one though because of friends.
You really don't see it? It is painfully obvious to me. 1) Drop the roster down to ~40 characters instead of 56 2) Release the rest of the characters as paid DLC 3) Profit
Even if greed wasnt involved (wich obviously is) , mvc2's 56 characters cast was composed of clones , sprites from other games and only 9 new characters done for the game . At least regardless of how we might feel about each of the 40 mvc3 characters , they arent clone and very distinct from each other . I'd say it's not even a stretch to say we actually gained more characters , instead of a dozen of clones with different skins .
Who cares about megaman , we have zerO !! IMo he is superior .( my opinion of course )
