Samurai Spirits/Samurai Shodown? Obscure? Far from it.

At least they have gotten more games than Darkstalkers, Art of Fighting, World Heroes, The Last Blade, Aggressors of Dark Kombat, Kabuki Klash, Red Earth, etc.

Now those series are obscure. None of them have even gotten a modern game like SS did (& the last SS game was SS Sen back on Xbox 360). Plus SS has far more memorable characters than most of the series of games that I've mentioned.

Sogetsu's more popular cuz he's traditionally been stronger than his bro in every game especially in their debut. Same with Suija over Enja.

Kazuki is the single most boring character to show up in the genre. He looks like a background NPC... for Virtua Fighter.

Calling Darkstalkers obscure seems a bit of a stretch.

If anything Capcom themselves made it obscure.

Two months per character is fine, honestly. Just gives the game more longevity in an environment where everything's flavor-of-the-month, and hopefully with that time comes polish and balance.

Speaking of taking a while to get four characters out, did Namco just give up on Cassandra?
I solemnly swear that I aim to misbehave.

The lack of Iroha clearly shows that SNK is catering to the western fans first, good job.

It take much longer considering CAS Pack 1 and Additional Character Amy released in a same month.

It's obvious that they're saving Iroha for the 2nd season for some easy profits, not because they're "catering to western fans first."
