This post does not mention Hwang : ). Well, not directly 0_0 lol.

If Yun-Seong returns, I wonder how they will refine his story. His story (in my opinion) seemed like a combination of Seong-Mina’s story and Hwang’s story. Will we meet his family : )? Maybe he will follow a certain person around ( as it is someone he looks up to)?

Does the silver slot make any sense for lizardman? For silver I think of viola or zwei but they are good guys.

Lizardman is the only evil “character” at this point who isn’t in the game

I wonder if they will build a brotherly relationship between Hwang and Yun-Seong if they were both to comeback. Hwang seems to have lost his parents (not specified how exactly) because they stood for justice. The Hwang (stoic) - Yun-Seong (wild/free) dynamic would be fun ( I think lol). They could learn from each other.

I would count Yun-Seong as evil too lol. Not because he is, but he does want to pursue Soul Edge. Lizard man seems kind of brownish/yellow to me. Also, he is not extremely popular (it seems). But, his redesign could involve Silver. I hope he comes back too! His story is really tragic/interesting. If his story is given time, I think more people would be interested in him.

Hilde, Haohmaru, Yun-seong & Setsuka.
If I understood correctly all the characters of season two will have their own stage, some variations of old stages, while others something really new.
In the trailer for Season 2 Pass we can see two such variations Cursed Moonlight Woods and Master Swordman's Cave.
Something that caught my attention is that in the trailer for the new moves they omitted one of the variations
You see the daytime forest several times, it's BAAM !! In Hilde's trailer she appears in the forest, which makes us think this is her signature stage.

We already know that Haohmaru will come with a stage of Samurai Shodown like the other guest characters. Great chances of being Gairyu Isle.

I previously asked who fits the other variation (but I was completely ignored, the only members who responded tried to make a dumb joke. T_T)

They basically put in some elements of Luoyang: Grand Festival of Guandi Temple, turning Master Swordman's Cave into a kind of coliseum or something. Honestly I don't think they fit Setsuka or Hwang.
Hwang has always been related to the desert stages, I commented with DanteSC3 that if he was in the game the Sunken Desert Ruins would be his signature stage, which would be the closest to Silk Road or Desert Ruins. It makes no sense for him to come with it, especially since he and Mi-Na spent most of their time in the desert, even though I wanted Seong dojang in the game.. :sc3hwang1:
So I'd say our little buddy Yun-seong would be better in pink slot. :sc2yun2:
As for Setsuka I would say that she is the only character who would come up with a remake of an old stage, so she would be the last character to come. :sc3set1:
Which would leave the third season pass with YELLOW, REPTILE, STONE and a new character. :sc3hwang1::sc1liz1::sc4roc1::sc2tak2:/:sc2rap3:

Project Soul on its facebook stated that Viola is an antagonist, as we know we only have 3/4 of SC 5 Story Mode, so I think we'll have to wait to know why she's a villain.

I would say it would be like Hwang was a Kpop Idol and Yun-seong an obsessive fan. He actually has a more brotherly relationship with Seong Mi-na. Maybe Hwang must have saved his life and he just seeks recognition.

I wish I had more pictures of that new stage. I don’t think it fits Yun-Seong exactly, but more so Setsuka. It has an Asian design aspect to it. However, the details on the Luoyang: Grand Festival of Guandi Temple mention it is an exciting event; almost like a carnival. Would Yun-Seong sneak out of the Dojang to come here? These are the two I see being attached to this stage. I could be totally wrong lol.

Ahh, nice catch @LisaK with the Viola affinity! I’m not sure if Mr. Okubo was around then to see this labeling of Viola, but Viola always seemed more on the evil side to me lol. I think it had to do with her not caring very much for others and her somewhat malfestation.

I'm not sure there's anything to be taken from the sword used in the background; I think more likely than not, they are just alternating the two swords. Afterall, Haohmaru is the main protagonist of SamSho; yeah, there's a little bit of that ego/single-minded focus thing that defines Mitsurugi as well, but unlike Mitsu, who has an established story of an obsession with Soul Edge (and even then he stays more hero than villain), Haohmaru is, at most, a more neutral character. So I'd say the significance of the swords is still a little unsettled. Hilde does suggest that the overt heroes are more likely to be paired with Soul Calibur, but there's still more speculation than an established trend here.

I think we are over analyzing the stages... I don't think the forest stage "belongs" to hilde I just think they wanted to show off both her and the new season 2 stage variant...
Agreed: unlike literally every game before this one, there has not been, for most of the main cast, a formal (or even heavily implied) home stage. We can reasonably associate Kunpaektu Temple with Astaroth and Lizardman (should he be added), Ostreinsburg Castle with Nightmare and Siegfriend, Indian Port with Maxi, Astral Chaos with Inferno, and Master Swordsman's Cave with Kilik, but for the most part, there are no strong associations in this game, and it would be weird if they changed course and added a new stage (or even more so, am existing stage variant) to be closely associated with a particular character, for all four characters in the season. It would also necesistate them delaying each stage for each character's release, if they were really looking to make such an association. I think it's more likely the extra stages/variants (aside from Haohmaru's of course) will be freebies given out with major patches between DLC releases.

It does seem like characters are commonly linked to certain stages. But, I’m not sure if the pattern is concrete. Amy debuted in the night forest stage (which fit her). But, Cassandra’s appearance begins on the sand level then eventually moves to Sophitia’s stage.

I wish we really did have a concrete answer on this. It would help my heart a lot haha! Still, it is interesting (to me lol) that the swords remains on the season pass even after the slot is filled. Could that hint at their significance? Hilde definitely fits with Soul Calibur. But, like you mentioned @Rusted Blade, Haohmaru doesn’t really seem evil/bad.

Also, it is interesting (to me again haha) that Project Soul didn’t use the design of the last season pass. I admit, this one is nicer (and trickier while also giving hints).
