Bummer. Perhaps they felt that story mode, release date, and special editions were enough for this week and will resume character reveals in two weeks.

Although, they will have to do one today if they want to reveal one character every other Thursday until October 19th.

1) June 14
2) June 28
3) July 12
4) July 26
5) Aug 9
6) Aug 23
7) Sept 6
8) Sept 20
9) Oct 4
10) Oct 18

Even if Raphael doesn't make SoulCalibur VI, for the sake of argument, that doesn't rule him out of SoulCalibur VII, you know. The assumption, for me at least, is that the next game would pick up where this one leaves off, and Raphael can always enter the story later in the timeline, like some others that won't make it into this story, such as Setsuka and Hilde. They can get their development with all new stories in the next game along with new supporting cast members as well. I figure that SoulCalibur VI is but the framework for a new beginning.

Seriously though I am surprised we didn't get any character reveals at E3. I was almost expecting another 4 character drop like the first one we got. It seemed the best time. Then my expectations lowered to maybe just Talim based on all the teases but now it's like... nothing :S

This is along my line of thinking. I suspect Raph's part in the story has been retconned out and that Talim's role has been made more central to the main plot.
I vigorously disagree with that, there are way too many characters I can already see them focusing on, first there's Kilik, who's obviously taken the main role from Patroklos, considering they gave him his line, then there's the currently known main antagonist in Nightmare, then there's Xianghua, who will be the wielder of Soul Calibur again, there's also Groh, who's the main character's rival, Siegfried is there too so you bet they're gonna give him something important to do, then there's Geralt and Mitsurugi, who seem to be the poster boys of this game, and then there's Zasalamel, who might actually be the main antagonist of this game, I highly doubt Talim would be the main character lol...

There's no going back to the glory days of SoulCalibur I and Tekken Tag golden era, where people were genuinely hyped and every day felt special. Unfortunately, our culture has been seriously debased since then by the triangle posse's use of weaponized anthropology. There's too many people like Yoshimitsu now wanting to steal your soul, and people are suffering more so now than ever before. Self-importance is at an all-time high; empathy at an all time low. Therefore, people have too many worries about survival and are no longer in touch with their emotions to the extent where they are free enough to enjoy SCVI as intended, hence all the hate speech that manifested in response to the first E3 stream.
I too was disappointed with what we got on E3, my expectations were high and it all turned out like a situation where you like a girl and you pour all your emotions with her then the shortcomings start to surface and that is what tests how true your feelings are for her.
That's what i stumble upon, i have checked for updates about the game almost everyday since December and the last time i was so eager to know about a game was for SC III when i didn't have internet and all i had was a Spanish magazine with info that i looked at regularly.
That state of mine came back for SC VI and i really gotta be grateful they come so far with the game, i want it to be perfect in my own standards just like the rest of us but something will always be missing just like with someone we like having flaws.

I know it sounds childish but i believe what we feel about the game contributes to what the final product will be, wether be disapointment or appreciation so i will have faith for the best because after all i already got more than i imagined we would get.

I didn't say she would be the main protagonist, only that her role would be enlarged or made more important than it is in the old plot.

Sure, but I doubt she'll be a central character in this game, maybe they will build her as an important character for the sequel but there's no way she will be anything more than a side character in VI.

You just fell in love with the essence of her instead of the real her! Happens all the time... People wear a mask, but underneath that mask 99% of people are harbouring demons that cannot be exorcised.

I mean, we kind of did get five reveals. We got soft confirmations of Talim, Astaroth, Lizardman, Cervantes, and Inferno.

What they could do and would be awesome is to, instead of just minor DLCs with a few characters, treat it more like an MMO or RPG in the sense of a real expansion. They could sell it like any other expansion, it could extend the timeline further, add in the later characters and have an ever expanding plot. The roster could grow and grow, etc.

They've already done the hard work and have all the grounding they need to do this.

La-da-di-dum!
Astaroth scored really low too and he was soft confirmed to be in. He’s lower than Hilde and Hwang. And Lizardman’s even lower.........
Asta is a plot device, token golem bad guy. I dont think a lot of people would pick him as their favorite when you have other cute girls or cool guys. But he has to be there for variety.
