I would say Yun Seong too, but with the return of Hwang in the game he becomes 'obsolete' like "another Korean male character using Dao".

You say this when we've got Mitsu and Yoshi, Kilik and Mina, Raph and Amy, Sophie and Cassie. You of all people should know by now it's nonsense to think that certain legacy characters are redundant because of weapon class sharing. Remember when people said they don't want Hwang back because he's boring. Funny how they all shut up when we got to see how he played. What I find funny is that even though Hwang turned out to be cool as fuck, those people ended up targeting other legacy characters saying "Rock is boring" or "Li Long is just another Maxi". Just don't listen to these shit opinions, Project Soul have proven themselves time and time again they are an incredibly creative team. You know as well as me that SC6 is the best game in the series even with it's infuriating online jank. Have faith ye thirsty Yun fan.

The only true behind that is that people would prefer new weapon type character because people want diversity and I can understand that

However the work they started in SC3 AE trying to give Hwang his own path has been done, and Yun has definitly his place. I would say it's now kinda similar to Sophie / Cassy, they share a lot of visual similarities but they also propose a different playstyle

Oh I absolutely get that there are those who want something brand new to the series like a kusarigama or an official fist cestus character, though new weapon styles for the most part come with new games. I've been waiting for my boy Li Long for so long that I can't help but be a bit selfish and have him back with nunchucks. To hell with that three section staff nonsense, give that to another character like Edge Master who has official art depicting him with a bow staff, that could be a trick weapon that transforms into a three section staff.

The similar weapon argument is made for the older games. SCIII started to make characters different. We saw this the most in Nightmare & Cassanadra. Mi-na & Rock were done badly in SCIII & IV because Kilik & Astaroth were favored more + appeared in every main game since SCI. SCVI does a great job in making each character unique. Just because one character has a couple of moves similar to another character doesn't mean another character is gone. Remember people thought Siegfried wouldn't make the base roster when Nightmare got some of Siegfried moves like WS AA, SCV Siegfried's 22_88BB. I still think Yun-seong might make SCVI S3 if there is a S3 because Project Soul can look at SCII - IV for moves to add & tweak.

Tekken 7’s New DLC Character Is Lidia Sobieska :sc2hei1:
We now have the full name of Tekken 7‘s upcoming DLC fighter: Lidia Sobieska. Bandai Namco recently sent out physical press kits with the character’s name included. The press box included a letter from Heihachi Mishima addressed directly to the new fighter as well. Lidia Sobieska will reportedly release in early spring 2021.

Bandai Namco is ramping up its promotional efforts for Lidia in Tekken 7. Inside the press kit is a letter from the CEO of the Mishima Zaibatsu himself, Heihachi Mishima. This adds some extra lore for people to ponder. As a reminder, the new DLC fighter is the Prime Minister of Poland in Tekken‘s universe.

According to Heihachi’s letter, Lidia requested the removal of the Tekken Force deployed in Poland. The CEO stated that he has no intention of following through with her request, but he did admire her for reaching her position at such a young age. Though the letter reads cordially, in typical Heihachi fashion, it’s more of a threat. The difficult position the Mishima Zaibatsu has put Lidia in will serve as her motivation for entering the King of the Iron Fist Tournament.

Chances of that happening for such an old game were slim. Oh well, when I played it on xbox 360 I had smooth matches most of the time, so I am sure I'll be fine.
