    Lala Satarin Deviluke Woah didn’t see her coming, even though now like 5 support characters and 16 playable characters so far. March 19? Plenty of time to announce more characters!!!

  • naruto ball z

    lala yes

  • Rayhan PromisedGallery

    so, this game is supporting Luffy X Hancock ?
    Pirate King X Pirate Empress FTW

  • Tenshiken

    This one seems like a fun import. Does anyone know if they mentioned DLC for this game? I’m trying to decide whether to put it on my Japanese account or my US one. (For the Vita version)

    Lala :D

  • Lelouch Vi Britannia

    Sigh where the literal F**k is Tsuna Sawada. Rin Okumura, Seiya, Kenshiro.
    I want those characters in the game.

    • kirby755

      Well they have until march 15, so they still have plenty of time to announce them.

  • Aiddon

    huh, they picked Hancock and not Nami as a playable One Piece woman? I knew she was popular (as evidenced by the merchandise) but I didn’t think she’d be in the game, let alone playable

  • bloodiOS

    If Lala’s in then can I hope that Eve will show up eventually, too? By the way, can someone remind me if Train Heartnet is part of the cast?

  • MrKappa

    I always felt this game would have a strange roster compared to Super and Ultimate and it is looking even more so. I already feel like the roster is gonna be small in comparison.

    Boa playable and Rukia bumped down to support?

  • EX+

    I’ve almost lost interest in this game. It looks like it’ll get boring after a few matches. Also, the roster is pretty weak so far. Where’s Tsuna? Where’s Hibari? Why is Rukia a support character.
    I’m not gonna bother with this game. I would consider it if it was localized, but due to licensing issues, I doubt it will be. That’s just me though.

  • Zancrow

    Didn’t expect Hancock.
    Needs more Oga, though.

    Waiting on Pharaoh (Yu-Gi-Oh) confirmation. Hopefully playable.

    • Budgiecat

      I’m a little worried by now they’ve avoided such obvious characters. Why?

      I hope its not going to be a DLC fest…

      • Matthew Fisher

        I hope that Takumi from Chaos;Head is in this,or Lelouch vi Britannia from Code Geass.

  • Cry_Zero

    PLEASE release it in other territories too. I cant play it if its in japanese…. But I HAVE TO PLAY IT

  • Eclipse

    Damn, it’s a shame that Lala is only support >_<

    I hope this means there's a chance to see Yami in this.
