The fuck is that papilio costume?!
It's a lingerie.. To be fair, this actually looks like something that Ivy would wear. Kappa

Considering what happened to DoA6 (stuck left announcing a "sale" of existing products during the jap fighting game dev round table) would warn serve as a warning. Obviously the failure is due to to a myriad of factors, but they would do well to avoid any comparison to DoA currently.

But on the other hand, there is a vacuum left because DoA6 is effectively done and maybe they can poach some of those users with "exciting" costumes

This is a non issue. SC6 doesn't make a big deal of advertising the sexy whore outfits. They just squeeze a small image or two in the character reveal trailer. They will never fall into the depths of DOA if they follow the current path they are on.

Are there any sexy outfits that were made for men in Lost Swords? Perhaps they can show off hwang in it when they briefly show CAS pack F

I don't mind the Lost Swords outfits somewhat, I can find at least a little bit of use in most of the items. I'd like them a lot more if they along with modern items didn't make up most of the CAS packs released and also if some of them weren't so ugly but at least there's more legwear/armwear to pick from.

I hope there's a pack that comes out specifically made for P2 outfits missing from the previous installments, along with regular CAS items from IV/V that haven't come back yet

I feel like they walk the tightrope on this issue. All the way up to and including SoulCalibur III, they were quite tasteful, but then SoulCalibur IV went way off the deep end into DOA territory with not only the outfits but also the proportions going to ridiculous lengths of over the top sexiness. Then SoulCalibur V reeled it back, mostly, then SoulCalibur VI let up slack again, particularly for the base roster female characters, as the DLC ones have been more tasteful (though they still suffer from SoulCalibur IV’s proportions, they never did dial that back), but they balance that out with the Lost Swords junk in the creation DLC.

It's not just the females, everyone's proportions were buffed to fuck from SC4. I don't hate these body proportions but I would prefer the series to go back to the sizes they were in SC2 and SC3. It's the same with the Tekken characters from Tekken 6 onward, tits, ass and biceps are all roided to fuck.

Be careful what you say about character sexiness in video games, or “he who shall not be named” will return to curse at you. Kappa

As Rusted said, he will return if they add a female newcomer in Season 3 and claim victory. Even though that would be like two and a half years late by that point....

(I still think a guest would sell better than a newcomer)

Even then, if it happens he gains nothing from gloating about something that people weren’t thinking is going to happen...for Season 2, not a possible Season 3 lol.

I actually did that, unironically. The first time I saw that bunny girl I thought it was Setsuka, and did a double take, upon which I promptly saw the bunny ears and realized it wasn't her after all.
