Improving story vs, Improving gameplay. You tell me, what thought process goes where.
improving story elements vs creating new mechanics, new characters, new fighting styles, new moves, testing the afforementioned, making sure they work as intended aswell as animate correctly and don't bring up any glitches or bugs and of course properly balancing moves and mechanics out so they aren't completely useless nor absolutley OP.

not sure what YOUR thought process is tbh

Would you care to elaborate on this?
He is right, actually. While both require creativity, fixing gameplay is a lot more objective: there is a part of the gameplay with an issue that prevents it from being what it should be, so, you pick that part and turn it back to what it should be, the only times where creativity is necessary on that is if you need to remove a specific part and add another to it, so you must add something that fits, but even when it comes to the testing part, its very objective. Story, however, must be something that keeps your attention, it must always be new and different, because if its too predictable, nobody will care about it, so it requires a lot more creativity to write one.

Regardless, this is a roster speculation, shall we return to talking about the roster? I see a lot of people asking for the return of Pyrrha Ω, but honestly, if Sophitia is actually coming back, her chances are basically zero. Pyrrha Ω has the almost exact same moveset, it wouldn't make sense to bring her back.

Yeah I agree. The concept art for Sophitia (whether it's real or not) plus the negative fan reaction for removing Sophitia in SC5 makes it seem a little more likely than not that Sophitia will return and Pyrrha Ω will not. Also, the leaks seem to indicate a return to the classic characters, like Xianghua and Kilik. Even if the leak is fake, I think we will see Sophitia replace Pyrrha Ω, mostly due to Sophitia's enduring popularity.

Updated OP with three characters revealed in the latest video by Hayate.

Pyrrha Ω
As much as she is more interesting and has more new moveset potential with her arm, we most probably gonna see normal Pyrrha return, as she was in both LS and pachinko - which meams that they consider her more marketable than Omega.
And I bet her cuteness makes her much more popular in Japan than her nightmare alter ego.

You are in too deep!
@Nyte Shouldn't Ivy & Mitsurugi be removed from the main post since @Vergeben confirmed that the male & female characters are Tira & Seigfried?
 

Nyte

Fu-ma's Shadow
Yeah, I'll do that. Though we both know they're gonna be in, best just to be safe.

To make a quick correction:
"Bladed style with unique moveset, has important role in story, connected to Kilik's rival (3)"
Was misconstrued.
That other newcomer that's connected to Kilik's rival that has an important role in the story's weapon is not something I was informed what exactly it is yet (I don't know if it's some kind of blade or not) other than they have a unique new moveset for the series and are not replacing/succeeding any character's weapon/moveset style.

I'm going to die inside a little if they make excuses about how they can't add old characters as DLC if this game is real after it's hypothetical launch.

I don't need every veteran in every game. But it would be nice to have one big game with everyone in just at least *once* like the tekken tag titles. Put them in one big game, then cut that roster in half or 3/4ths for the sequels.

But that's not going to happen, or at least won't for a long time.

(Though it's something that Team Ninja did with Dead Or Alive 5. They released expansions that brought back basically every desired veteran)

Rest in Peace Hwang

I'm not worried about old favorites not coming back, we've had more than enough proof to suggest that Hoshino has different plans than what Daishi had. Though, with Hwang I'm not sure where he stands I'll admit.

He's not coming back. It's gonna be the lost SCIV characters and that's probably it and then new characters.

If I don't get my expectations high then they can't be shattered.

Hwang & Li Long as DLC would be pretty awesome.
Maybe Namco may make a poll to vote for which veteran characters they’d want to return as DLC if they aren’t on the roster at launch.

On a side note: Does anyone think Voldo may be confirmed sometime down the line?
