PlayStation amd PC (depending on the user's hardware) all run fine.
Oh, yes, then, the large amount of people showing/claiming to have issues must all be making it up, then. After all, its not like we've ever had a Sonic game with problems before...

Can't you put the whole thing together in one link? I need to download the game, the characters file, the music/stages file, the individual character patches in the folder, the AI patch and this update. Like, it would make everything a lot easier.

Patches are meant to iron out small flaws of mostly finished games, what happened to this one is a clearly unfinished release that they're going to finish with a bunch of patches. There is no excuse for this behavior, when I buy a fucking game, I buy it to play it now, not to play in X days/months when the lazy incompetent shit company finishes it.

The full box art accidentally got leaked on the Switch EShop today.  Nothing on it that everybody didn't already guess from the last image, but the confirmation is good at least.

You can't seriously look at these images and say they didn't have to "remake" models.
By the looks of it, they overhauled most of the polygons and textures for every single character that made it in XV, thus the reason why their rosters are much smaller than XIV.
Yeah, no. Those models were only slightly altered, mostly texture updates, which really isn't that hard or expensive. It has a cost, of course, but it's not a remake at all and doesn't cost nearly as much as one.

Fair enough.
But you also need to realize that SNK has neither the money nor the time to overhaul characters like NetherRealm Studios.
They're on a tight ship regarding budget and development time so expecting anything too much is pretty much futile. Mind you, XIV didn't sell as well as they hoped and I'm not even going to mention SamSho 2019. I know this since SNK's shares are traded through KOSDAQ and their annual report revealed that they hit their lowest point in 2020 regarding sales.

Just expect the games to be mostly Copy + Paste with SNK until they become a financially stable company again.
That is not an excuse, dude. Reutilizing stuff in the base game can be excused to an extent, specially if they had no money, but charging extra money for recycled stuff that they removed? Hell, no. Not to mention reutilizing stuff already saves them a lot of money, since they don't have to remake models and animations for characters that were already in KoF XIV. They should have the money to make new stuff for the base game AND for the DLC. Also, I doubt SamSho didn't sell well, considering how its still getting DLC.

I really hope the DLC doesn't have any returning characters. Like, they took out the characters from the roster and then just copy-paste them (just like they did with most of this roster) and sell it for an extra price? Hell no, only new stuff.

Popular characters sell.

Mortal Kombat 11 mostly brought back old fan favorites like Mileena, Rain, Fujin, Sheeva, Sindel, Nightwolf, Shang Tsung. Never really a new face except for guest characters.
Street Fighter is quite similar since many of the new faces were badly received like Abigail & Luke.
KOF isn't going to be any different. 90% of the roster we've seen are old faces and I doubt people will not pay for classic characters like Kim or Kensou even if they return as DLC characters.

You're missing the point. Mortal Kombat characters didn't have the same gameplay for several games now, all those characters you mentioned play absolutely nothing like they did in their previous playable appearance. KoF XV is literally copying and pasting stuff from KoF XIV, which means that, if the DLC is returning characters, you're literally buying something you already had in the previous game, but now, for an extra price.

As someone who only played half of Saints Row 4, I don't really understand why people don't like this one, can someone enlighten me? I saw a video saying it was because the community thought it was "too woke" which could be because the one who made the video (or the game's audience) is bigoted, but I'm completely oblivious.

TMNT is gonna be the Mario series of the roster, isn't it?
Honestly, ATLA would have been better as the Mario series of the roster, but it surprises me that no character from that series has showed up yet.

It's cutting corners if they're downscaling the roster from last game.

It's really not.

Actually, it is. We can see that they're reusing assets from KoF XIV. All returning characters from that game have the same models and animations, with minor adjustments. Reducing the roster is definitely cutting corners when you're copying and pasting stuff from the previous game, unless they add a LOT of new characters (or characters returning from pre-XVI games).

Considering we didn't see anything new in this game, I wouldn't rule out Maximum Impact characters yet. SNK isn't stupid, they're probably aware that those games had some relatively popular characters and it would be unwise to not try and salvage them. They DID add those obscure guest characters in KoFXIV and managed to revive SamSho entirely, so, bringing back characters from a dead spinoff wouldn't be impossible.

don't understand why anyone would want to see mizoguchi back, he's very generic.

he's like ryu but worse. plus who would want him when there's marco rodriguez.
I really hope they retcon his name into something that actually sounds portuguese if they bring him back, since the character is Brazilian. "Marco Rodriguez" is in Spanish, the appropriate name would be "Marcos Rodrigues", this is the same thing that happened to Bandeiras, who was called "Banderas" before the game's release.
