Imminent Heel Turn
Gameplay variety > Story accuracy
To an extent, yes...Gameplay variety > Story accuracy
...but no, not like this.Just make Viola an Amy's clone and voila (no pun intended)
Of course it would be a retarded way to do so. I used that awful example just to remind that they can add whatever character they want.To an extent, yes...

Throwing away their new and improved narrative structure and flow would be a massive mistake. They have been using their new position to retell the story in a fairly cohesive and complete manner, and people have been loving it. Even with Hilde, we are seeing her a couple of years before she declares jihad on Algol, and thus are / will be learning more about her family and background. This is fine and only serves to enrich the characters and their depth. It breaks the “past” but not in a way that clashes with the “future”. It remains consistently canon without breaking anything.
In the literal sense of the word, yes. But I put rival in quotes as a means to describe it in the way of hero versus villain, that sort of rivalry. Mitsurugi just wants a strong opponent, without any semblance of good and evil. That’s not really the marketing angle you go for when there’s a holy sword versus a dark sword. Mitsurugi just ends up disappointed at not being able to test his skills anyway, since the pesky heroes get in his way time and time again.
Hilde & Siegfried vs Nightmare clash already covers the good vs evil part of the story pretty well, Mitsurugi vs Algol being a little bit different makes it more interesting in my opinion when both battles literally occur at the same time.In the literal sense of the word, yes.

I would be completely okay with Dampierre returning. I like having one joke character available in a fighting game, and Dampierre was fun to mess around with in SC5. That said, I'm also not really bothered if he doesn't end up in the game at all. Characters who are more popular should have priority.Please don’t hate me lol:
I think Dampierre adds a lot of personality to the game. He’s not only bombastic, like Azwel, but his style of fighting is something to watch. I would like it if he were slightly more on the good side though lol.
