the leak said Towa was gonna be a boss
So far there's zero evidence or even hint that this leak was real. And we won't know until the game is actually released, because it didn't say anything meaningful that could quickly confirm or deny its veracity. Just a number and a name, stuff that we won't be able to verify until the release (even if it's true, we probably won't see Towa until just before release at best). So you might as well just ignore it because it's worthless.

Seeing as this takes place during Super
I don't think we got a definitive confirmation of when the story takes place ? Maybe we can judge by Bulma's age since she's definitely only relevant to the story, I suppose.

Yeah, I'm getting really tired of this bullshit strategy that the AI has on maps setups where there's always two enemies (sometimes three) with diametrically opposed affinities next to each other where if you bring someone to kill one, the other will definitely kill you. And it's the first move you have to make, or sneaking around them takes forever. The horse slaying weapons made it even worse because the first unit is just within reach of a Reinhardt or Lyn but then the one just behind him is a blue horse slayer.

edit - yeah, doing a few more runs, I'm pretty sure there's always a horseslaying Mathilda and a hammertime Fred in two or three maps to kill all the Reinhardts and Hectors you try to cruise through the whole thing with. I'm sure there's some more hard counters to various things that I haven't noticed.

What I want to see is her gameplay.
We don't even know if she's a fighter, she could very well just be here for the story and not actually fight - I think she doesn't absolutely need to be a fighter. That's what I'm expecting so far, until they actually confirm her as a fighter.
As an android made after Gero who gave up on the infinite energy engine or whatever that 17/18 use and went with energy absorption, I guess she could easily take over the style of 19 and 20 without having to suffer looking at their design. But I haven't noticed if we've seen her palms yet, and if they have the absorption device thing.
Regarding Yamcha and Tien's trailer, the only thing I have to say (beside that they look great - although Yamcha is a little too straight forward, I was expecting more hi-low variations in his rushes) is, I hope Tien's Kikoho super can also be performed from the ground upward with one hand.

Considering they said when they unveiled the game that it was about 20% done, and that it's planned for early 2018, I'm actually expecting a few more characters since there's enough time for a few more reveal trailers. With the rhythm of the reveals so far, my completely random guess is something like 4 more can fit, probably including an actual boss for the story. Seeing Yamcha and Tien, I figure that Broly and Bardock can still be an easy choice, for a grappler / super heavyweight and a highly tricky fighter that zips and flips back and forth high and low.

I'd make jokes about Fire Emblem Warriors making a very unexpected reveal in Tiki and Caeda, as well as Caeda somehow using a spear even though she uses a sword in Heroes (I know, she uses a spear in the original game), but that trailer is boring and takes my hype out. They look okay, though.

There's also some gameplay in Japanese of them but like last time, the quality is terrible.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GGvDVwZTOZ0
Caeda is holding her spear near the bottom, it feels like an actual jousting lance (and it allows her to make it spin with a wider range), that's a nice touch for a style. Tiki's style is so messy, haha.

it's the theme, Ultron and Sigma (and Meio) are robot masters that conquer the world by spamming killer robots and you have to take down their army.
It doesn't work very well when you face them one by one or 2 by 2 and it takes forever between each kill.

Two worlds merge, people find themselves next to new strangers. Robots attack, the stronger people stick around and fight them off. Then they talk to each other about how cool they were.
But yeah, everyone seems to know everyone after 3 months just like that. Dante mentions he saw Ghost Rider only once before during the "convergence" and that's all.

I don't think she has a weapon switch.
https://www.eventhubs.com/news/2017/sep/21/monster-hunter-marvel-vs-capcom-infinite-gameplay-footage-tokyo-game-show-2017/ gameplay footage 4 hours into this stream, a quick demo followed by a detail of her movelist (in both Japanese and English)
She just has a few command normals and nice specials, but it doesn't look like she has a stance switch. Just one special and one super per weapon basically, but with a few tricks for each (double swords special and super change in the air, follow-ups on the big sword, a special roll that becomes a dash after the dual sword super that ends with a temp boost...)
I guess a weapon switch would have made a lot of sense but maybe they couldn't be bothered to come up with a different variation for each special with all weapons.

Sakura is playable, she uses a bow here. [...] You know, because healers don't really work in a Warriors game.
Gee, it's almost like you should not use her and pick someone else instead. (they laugh about that but they speak at the same time so I'm not sure what they say)
Objective change for all allies in the middle of battle, this is really going full tactics in a Warriors game.

The whole scene up until Hulk jumps in has Ryu wiggle around with his arms behind his back in very uncomfortable positions because he clearly can't move them. You don't have to remember how exactly Ryu jumps in front of Panther, leaning forward with his arms very visibly still tied (he leans low enough that you can see his hands on his back), and break free, but it should be clear enough to remember he was tied. If you didn't realize that, you were most likely simply not paying attention. And that's fine, we're not mad at you for not looking at your screen, but then don't make comments about Ryu being a scientist standing with his arms behind his back like he's uptight ?

Yeah. The way Ryu says it is weird and out of character but I just read it as two universes got merged, a bunch of people everywhere around the world were wondering what the hell was going on and looking around, and Ryu just walked up to a scientist, they decided to look around together, and got on a plane. It's not weird to think Ryu would find some strong or competent people and stick with them, since that's pretty much what he does in his life. Even if he himself isn't actually a scientist. Especially if shit is hitting the fan with killer robots, of course anyone would appreciate Ryu joining them.
Who, then? Why would Ryu team up with random people instead of heroes to know about the weird stuff happening? The only one with him is Hulk, and the story hints and them being together because Ryu is helping Hulk control his rage.
..... Literally anyone ? The first people he finds that seem to know what they're doing ? Especially if it's Banner he comes across, why wouldn't he stick with him ? He also mentions that there was more than just him and Banner in the plane but they're probably dead. Plus it's been 3 months and clearly Ryu has spent a while with Banner teaching him how to control the Hulk. So why wouldn't he stay around and follow him when he wants to go on a "research mission" ?
As for him using a computer, I'm browsing through a Youtube video and I can't find that moment. At Sigma's lab he's just standing around until Iron Man tells him to keep a look out for random drones and sends him off.

talking with arms behind his back as if he is some sort of soldier.
... Monster Huntress handcuffed him. Or used rope or whatever. (he breaks out of it like it was nothing a minute later)
And yes, he tends to go around with people a lot when the world is going to shit.

I'm expecting a cross between Viper and UMvC3 Jill in the way of teleporting dashes and low/flying scissor kicks with a bit of electric knuckles, filled out with some hurricanrana fluff. It fits the function.
Speaking of Marvel movesets, I play Future Fight on Android and I keep expecting the likes of Ultron or Thanos (and now Black Widow) to use moves they have in that, but they don't. Pity, some of them would fit fine.

I fail to see why would it be so hard to make him MvC, you're putting difficulties where there are none.
It's not a matter of difficulty, it's a matter that it blows and doesn't fit the looks of the game.

Checking the story mode cinematics, re: Arthur's "tell that to the princess" line, he actually looks a bit dejected when he says that so it actually feels like he himself doesn't appreciate that people kidnap his princess. It's better than what your average feminazi would be mad about. In fact, speaking of Arthur's lines, I'm a tiny bit more offended (well, in a joking way but more than the princess line) at how he calls Thor a "heathen god" (considering how fucking terrible Christianity was about that).
And I like Ryu buddying up with Hulk about controlling your rage.

Just watching Maximilian's video on the DLC reveal, and he seems to say that he heard hints some time ago for Gill like the last "leak" said, but Black Widow apparently replaced him later. If Gill really was a serious option, then Marvel pressuring Capcom for MCU promotion makes more and more sense.
Also I never really expected Gill in a vs series. He just doesn't feel like a good fit IMO, despite is fire&ice rain. Even Urien would be a better choice.
