  3. Characters being removed acceptable or not? And which would you remove?

It may not be a game- breaker (we'll see), but in my opinion cutting of characters, one of the main features of musou games, especially with the reasoning being that characters were chosen with the notion that they place along the episodes to strengthen the story retelling, is simply stupid, especially when keeping in mind that Story mode won't be te only mode available anyway...Expectations have already been kept low by most people, from what I could gather, 10 new characters has been the consensus and now considering it was apparently said that the roster will have over 40 characters, we me might get more than 10, at least on the first sight, but it will be for the cost of removing other characters and that's actually worse than only getting 10 characters for me. For example, imagine the Vinsmokes being added, but some of the past main villains with a diverse moveset being removed....

However, the only characters I personally wouldn't mind or are acceptable to be removed due lack of story relevance, or moveset potential, are Perona and perhaps Tashigi (I know a lot of you liked her moveset, but ignoring the story relevance, I view her as generic swordsman, Zoro, Mihawk and now plenty characters in Wano and Whole Cake, even including Kinemon have more intresting moves to offer...

Anyone else is or has been way too important in the past to be removed.

Removing characters is unfortunately s***ty. If we get a bunch of new ones that are an absolute blast and the old characters are revamped to be fun, I don't mind. As for characters being removed these are who I don't mind get removed:

Ivankov - Big clunky, and just not a fun character IMO
Garp - Never found his moveset fun at all.
Perona - Same thing as Garp, just wasnt fun for me

Personally, acceptable or not, I believe you should always vote with your wallet and tell them why you won’t be buying the game using feedback.

On topic I don’t think they can remove most of the arcs without negatively affecting the game. You can sum up most of the East Blue stuff using dialogue and keep Baratie and Arlong Park. Then on the grand line maybe keep Drum Island and W7, but definitely keep Alabasta, Skypeia, Enies Lobby, Thriller Bark, Saobondy, Impel Down, and Marineford. Then TS maybe do a return to Saobondy, but definitely keep Fishman Island, Punkhazard, Dressrosa, maybe implement Zou, and of course WCI and Wano. Then fill in the rest with dialogue summaries. This will keep most of the major characters and mostly trim npcs and drop a few playable characters like Perona.

The notion that they’re removing giant characters is a theory around here but I think it’s nonsense since large characters like Moriah and Magellan have jumping type attacks in PW3.

I still don't believe the cut characters thing. I think hanfoi is making a big stink about someone else's predictions in that article. There's no official word, so I don't believe it

Also, did you know Big Mom, Kaido, Moria, Whitebeard are too big to be playable in this game!/S

It was sarcasm. He spreads so much misinformation by presenting his feelings as facts like he’s a psychic and then tells others not to spread misinformation like he’s policing the board. I’m honestly surprised people listen to him.

I don’t doubt we’ll lose some characters but I don’t think they are going to butcher the story. We’ll likely only lose the arcs like Jaya and some Easy Blue stuff.

Removing playable characters will never be acceptable. If Koei removes even 1 character from Pirate Warriors 3 (it doesn't matter who it is), I will not be buying this game.
Lets make Waluigi playable in Smash Bros Ultimate!
