Basically when all the previous characters from past SF games are all in the latest version


That’s not going to happen. Capcom has created too many characters to be in a single game.


Yeah especially as dlc. I liked hakan I think his name was in 4 but I doubt he's popular enough to make any decent money off of. And even I'd be skeptical of paying for unless he was surrounded by other good characters in a season pass.

I'd also probably be one of the very few interested in Remy.

Uhm
if you count variations as single chars for MK

Also should apply to
Different Vtriggers for SF

IMHO
In both cases it s stretching it a bit

I just wished they would add at least one more, because looking at the character select screen and not having the same number of characters on each side is really messing with my OCD.

Nobody ever said "Super Turbo really needs more characters". Nobody ever said "Alpha 3 Max really needs more characters". Nobody ever said "Ultra SF4 really needs more characters". Actually, as a Random Select player, I find USF4 too big.

I said all that.

Yeah, but that was never the problem with any of those games. SFA3's problems won't be solved by adding Retsu. And it's not that USF4 was short of characters.

Anyway, the real answer to this question: one person can't give the true answer. You need to consult a large number of people. Nobody uses every character, in fact 40% of people only use one character.

https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/boards/895976-street-fighter-v/77214058

Most people are happy with one character. Hell, if that one character is Ryu then already 11% of people are happy.

BUT - that's not the same thing as how many the game needs. More characters means more people are happy with the game (ie more sales), and it means more people play it (ie more people online), and more variety of opponents (ie better online). More is better.

Add Rose, Hugo, Guy, Adon, C viper, and poison and the roster is good.

Well, kof 14 has a roster of 50 plus, as does tekken . Very few clones too.

It can be done. Imagine a Street Fighter 6 with 50 plus characters at launch plus doc.

I really intrigued by which route 6 will go. And that route will help determine which characters are in or out (base roster at least) just beat the shadow falls general story and I felt the way the credits scene was handled we will be seeing gill next game. Seemed more of a cliffhanger than just a nod to where the story ends up as we know. I just wonder if it will be a prequel or sequel to 3

Lmao, you know half the roster is going to be locked behind a paywall or an outrageous amount of FM if they even continue that.

Technically, over half the cast is locked behind a paywall in SFII. The first game only had eight characters and you had to keep paying and paying and paying to get the whole cast.
