Motohiro Okubo announces Astaroth and Seong Mi-Na at EVO 2018

Right before the Tekken finals at EVO 2018, Okubo stepped onto the stage and presented the world premiere for Astaroth and Seong Mi-Na! Sure, the appearance of Astaroth was a forgone conclusion the moment Maxi was revealed; but Mi-Na was not. In fact, I don't believe anyone thought she would actually be in the game with Kilik already being on the board.

Out of all the new characters in Soul Calibur 4 and 5, she was the only one who really stuck out as a good concept in game. We had a lot of weird characters in 4 and 5 introduced - bubble-spam Necrid-Hybrid lord Algol, Star Wars, Starkiller/Zwei, and Hilde with the button hold spam. It'd be a shame for Viola(Amy?) to be cut with the freddy claw and orb style. They never explained where she came from, and in this game they can show that.
 
I’m so disappointed. Why they’d use the Evo platform to showcase.. Seong Mi-Na!?

Marketing wise.. really? Where is Tira!?
I'm hoping for Tira as DLC so she can keep her current playstyle. In order for it to fit into the story line with the new game, she'd revert to her SC3 playstyle. I like my personas.

I suppose they COULD make some hybrid Viola/Amy character, but Viola as she is, is an SC5 character. Given this is a reboot, though, I wouldn't expect it. You never know though.
 
Prepare for Titan Drops galore. :sc5ast1:

And hopefully Mina will not be SCIV all over again.
im surprised there was literally no bull rush in his reveal at all. i know the move didnt become one of his signatures till SC3 but at this point its synonymous with asta. command grabs are lit though!
