That's just Japan tho, pretty sure he's much more popular in the west. I for one would prefer him over Cham Cham, Mina or Iroha, who all seem to only be popular because fanservice.

Fan Service ... sells.

Game Dev is a business. It's not that hard to understand their intentions when including popular characters.

Samurai Shodown is beyond niche in the west, and Gen-an is a niche character to boot. I cannot imagine Gen-an is more popular than any of those three in the West

yeah, this game. im talking about the series in general. samurai shodown as a franchise, as a community, doesnt even register on the same scale as the heavy hitters of the genre.

The franchise was a total success in its first release waayyyy back in 1993 despite being a simple filler game.
Then it met its downfall ever since the whole Nevada-chan murder in Japan. The government started to heavily censor much of Japanese games' violence.

and now, even though it's still somewhat popular, it's never recognized as a leading franchise for SNK.
It's the same with Soul Calibur and Bandai Namco.

If I struggled to the end of my determination, to the end of my way of life with my followers, if the result is ruin, then this ruin is inevitable. Grieve. Shed tears. But you cannot regret.

I think the biggest issue to the game being more popular in the fgc is simply the netcode. That and not being on steam. Both really hurts the game growth competitive wise. Its still nice to see its doing well even with those issue
