And with the last update, KT stops supporting this game starting mid-April.
What a stupid ride we had.
Huge high prices Season Passes, unnecessary censors here and there, this f***ing story...
Seriously! What kind of mess is this?
https://www.gematsu.com/2020/03/dead-or-alive-6-final-update-launches-in-mid-april
Its just Koei showing how greedy they are, and suffering the deserved consequences.

A mess that potentially killed the Dead or Alive series.

Maybe that's the best for some of us, I don't know...it's a shame that the sixth game eventually killed the whole series entirely.
Lets not go too far, darling, even Koei would not stupid enough to go as far as killing a franchise for one failed game. Dead Or Alive is too easy to milk money from, remember, despite them being apparently aware that DoA6 went too far, they still got away with the bullshit in DoA5, which was a LOT.

Shimbori?

The director of DoA6. The dude has a history of being quite the divided person. In interviews, he said he wanted to make DoA6 more eSport friendly... yet, in other interviews he was all for the sex appeal. He was the same way when it came to any characters from the Xtreme series: He said that no one from there would be in the core game... yet we have Tamaki in the game as DLC.

It also doesn't help that the game has a massive truckload of DLC that is obscenely expensive. The Season Passes are for a combined total of $345! Who the fuck has that kind of money?!?!
Unless Shimbori is responsible for all the Warriors series as well, I don't think the DLC excess is his fault, not entirely, its more like Koei themselves. Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors (not sure if Warriors Orochi too) all have some pretty ridiculous DLC practices as well, the most notable one being the excess, followed closely by recycled content.

I fail to see what exactly makes him unfit to Soul Calibur.

Excessively dark and edgy 90's western comic superhero character in a Japanese Fantasy fighting game...

Now think about it again and if you still can't see it then nobody can help you. ö.ö
The japanese fantasy fighting game in which the main story happens around two swords that suck souls out of people? I think he fits in just fine.

On the other side of the coin, there is Dragon Quest Hero, which comes from a much smaller franchise than Mario, but condensed multiple characters into one, though I assume, due to him just being called "Hero" that they are nameless avatars for the player that don't have as much prestige as Link to have their own official names.

Not only is Dragon Quest as big a franchise as Mario (probably bigger), it actually has way more prestige than Zelda. This is something westerners can't really fathom, in Japan the franchise is not only the best selling game franchise of all, its games always come out on fridays so people won't skip work/school to play them. The heroes being nameless avatars or being condensed into a single character have nothing to do with prestige.
Dragon Quest never came even close to be as big as Mario. Mario is almost synonym with games that people who don't even play games will always know, Dragon Quest isn't even close to that, it is niche at best, get your facts right.

Just a villain to represent the entire series in a game about representing series instead of their main star or closest equivalent, at least for something so new as Arms, would come across a little odd to me.  To someone who'd never played nor heard of Arms, to then learn of it through Smash, get interested in it, only to find they won't be playing as the character they've become accustomed to in Smash would probably be disappointing.  At least as the first character showing from said series in Smash, anyways.
Pretty much. Despite thinking that it was a possibility for all Arms characters to be condensed into one, like Bowser Jr. and the Koopalings, these ones can afford to share the same moveset like that simply because they belong to one of, if not the most famous video game franchise in history. On the other side of the coin, there is Dragon Quest Hero, which comes from a much smaller franchise than Mario, but condensed multiple characters into one, though I assume, due to him just being called "Hero" that they are nameless avatars for the player that don't have as much prestige as Link to have their own official names. With Arms, though, they're not nameless avatars nor they're secondary characters from a huge franchise, so they need specific representation, which likely means the most notable members of the game will appear, likely one of those shown right in the game's cover: Spring Man or Ribbon Girl, most likely the former, since the latter is not in focus despite delivering an attack.

It definitely doesn't look better than the one with SNK sprites, hell this doesn't even look like any version of Drax I know.

I never played ARMS, do those characters have unique attacks? If not, I could easily see "ARMS fighter" being a character and each alt would be someone from that game's roster. Otherwise, I think Spring Man is the most likely one.

The Prince = Katamari?

Over a Tekken character? Yikes. Birdo is my favorite Mario character and that would be even more yikes than Rosalina's 1 game (as a major character not a character select by the time of Smash 4) ass. The only other Mario character should be Paper Mario.

Robotnik over another fast animal person though? I hope that is true. They couldn't even get Dr. Wily to work as a character, Robotnik has no chance sadly.

Which bears? What moveset would Lance from Contra even have? They're literal perfect assisst though.

Why couldn't Raiden have a chance, not counting... All-Stars...?
Prince of Persia, watch the video. As a matter of fact, I had included Raiden as the example in my post, I deleted it by accident. Also, Robotnik cannot be made to work? With all possible references to his machines? Are you that low on imagination?

Sirfetch'd may be popular, but there are many more popular choices, like the starters, the legendary wolves....
Yet they are spirits.  Zarude so far from what I've seen hasn't really clicked on interest with the fanbase and neither are the new legendaries.

Only choices I see for a Galar rep is Toxtricity or Dragupult who was voted as the most popular Galar mon in Google's Pokemon of the Year polls with the former as the second best.  Still holding out on this one.  Then again Incineroar didn't became top Alola pick from said poll so take with truck loads of salt.

Of course, final starter evos might have a chance if Gamefreak wanna push promoting their DLC by introducing their new Giga formes for their Final Smashes.

Cause Spirit.

I'm ok with Quiet along with MGS5 tracks.
Honestly, I doubt "spirits" will keep characters away from too long. Sure, its true that, among the current DLC cast, none were spirits before, but some spirits are just too important to keep out, they can just swap the spirits for something else and make the character DLC regardless.

I sincerely doubt most of those will ever be included:

- Birdo is extremely unlikely with Waluigi being the most requested Mario character
- The Prince didn't have a game for a long while, and the last one he had wasn't that big of a deal, he isn't on the level of Sonic, who managed to get away with lots of garbage games (and even then, Sonic has some good ones as well)
- Sirfetch'd may be popular, but there are many more popular choices, like the starters, the legendary wolves and maybe even one of the upcoming DLCs
- Those stupid bears don't even need to be mentioned, nobody cares about them
- Shenmue had a niche audience whose last game had a very poor reception, nobody cares about Ryo
- Geno actually does have a chance, but even then, he was favored by the fans for a long time and Nintendo didn't do jack shit about it
- I could see the Xenoblade kids be added, but I still don't think they'd be favored over the competition
- The only other character from the Metal Gear franchise I can see added is Raiden, and with a small chance, Big Boss has pretty much nothing
- Crash has a quite high chance, you don't need "math" to get to him
- I can see the Contra Commandos be added, despite the franchise being pretty much dead, its still a classic
- I can see 2B getting in as well, but when it comes to modern games, she has lots of competition
- Dr. Eggman is a classic villain, and It surprises me how little people seem to care about him being added, I can see him making it in, but the chances aren't big

In conclusion: this is all bullshit, no math can predict the next group of DLCs, because its not a robot picking them.

I see, so since Momiji isn't gonna be in (yet), most likely they're using her animations for this one. If they do... I honestly won't be surprised at all.

I feel like the character will be boring and rushed.

I can be wrong of course...
But I have the feeling new doa content/animations are too expensive to product.

So, they tend to add less of them.
I think they just try attract ppl by using the "new girl" method, like they did several times.

I still hope I'm wrong and the character to be complete and interesting, beside of the 3D model.
Rushed? When was the last time the game had a DLC character? Regardless, I fail to see how one character would be "too expensive to product", that makes literally zero sense. Though, considering this game comes from Tecmo-Koei, I wouldn't be surprised if all characters currently in it were made with a Dynasty/Samurai Warriors approach, in which many of the models and animations are recycled from the previous one, with only a slightly improved quality, so yeah, considering that an entirely new character (sort of) would require animations being made from scratch, maybe this girl was more expensive than the rest, just not "too expensive to product" in general.

Game is pretty much a failure and they're baiting the gatcha players to buy the game.
A failure in the west, but probably not in Japan. To be fair, I cannot tell if them literally selling hair color change in the game (not selling colors, mind you, selling a color change, which means if you want to change back to the original, you gotta pay again) means they're desperate to make money from the smallest thing, since they're not getting much or if they're getting so much money from everything they currently have, that they're being even bigger pieces of shit and trying to make money of literally everything.
