So, with the addition of Astaroth and Seong Mi-Na, we now have 17 characters! The roster is currently looking pretty good. Which characters do you plan on making, and which (if any) do plan on picking up?
Xianghua's always been a solid pick for me and she looks good to me so far. I've always liked Kilik as well, although I'm not sure his Soul Charge is my style and I never learned his Monument/Asura Dance/FotD stuff.
Groh looks pretty cool, fast offensive character with decent range. I might sub Ivy if her zoning game stays as strong as it is, if you can't beat 'em join 'em and all.
Sticking with Sophitia, I shall. To me, it is similar to playing as Mario in Smash 4. Recently, while I was playing SC3 Taki started to appeal to me with all the rolling, flipping and flying around she does...as well as her kunoichi Bob-ombs which is her coolest move to do.
So yeah...Sophitia and Taki, hands down. Should Setsuka be announced, shall be sticking with her as well.
I'll see what ones feel right and probably main those. The game seems to be changing up a lot of characters and mechanics so I won't really know until I get a chance to sit down and check all of them out.
In the past I've primarily played Raphael, Mitsurugi, and Aeon/Lizardman.
