Third-parties work a bit different than first-party inclusions.  Lot less hoops to jump through to get them to add, say, Mach Rider over whatever they needed to do to get the original JENOVA in.  And Bamco worked on the game to begin with and had Pac-Man as a reoccurring character so I'd say he gets a little leeway on what follows suit. (Never did get why they dropped the superior Pac-Man stage from Smash 4 3DS going into Ultimate though)

You mean the one with a gimmick that only worked when everyone had their own screens?
Because I think it's pretty obvious why it got dropped.

Honestly, there hasn't been a single DLC character yet that hasn't blown every single prevalent theory at the time completely out of the water.  Even Byleth was completely unexpected with how entirely expected he was.  I'd say hang all the rumors and theories and just wait and see.  It could be anyone.

100% this. As I said earlier

The "smash leaks" have been getting way out of hand. Every single one I've seen has been dead wrong that it's obvious that these "leakers" are just throwing out guesses to hopefully get their five minutes of internet fame.

Never thought I'd see this, but Vergeben is sorta back, and with some Smash tease.
Spoiler: spoiler for folks who don't wanna click (click to see content)
Now, I'm not sure what to think about it. Vergeben hasn't posted leaks in over a solid year, so nobody knows if he stayed in contact with whatever source that told him all the Smash info. On the other hand, his last leak before was rather accurate, as he pretty much leaked the mii costumes from Byleth's presentation mid-Direct. It'd be a pretty ballsy thing for him to do that again. Still, I'm putting this as small food for thought before the direct comes.

The developer is intrigued by that idea tho it isn't happening.

Now that the game is released on pc the game has finally been datamined.

As shown by the existence of certain folders in the Character folder the 5 dlc characters are...

Spoiler, click to toggle visibilty
Not that I don't think the DLC is wrong, but there's a chance that what was leaked may have just been story mode data.

Y'all making it out like 15 characters is a small roster. For a 1v1 fighter at launch, it's not. It's fine. All the other games with big rosters either are tag fighters and/or had DLC over time. There's also the matter of what asset can be reused.

Finally, time to see the newcomer/s. Hero and Banjo were revealed in 2019. Now that we have four fighters in season 2, maybe we'll get the 2 final fighters and I'll be glad that's over with. No more requesting and probably no more whining about Waluigi. Let the salts coming for these fans.

If we're getting a reveal, it's just going to be one. We're in this for the long run.

Well, I'm sure the VF fans will appreciate knowing their series is alive again even if it's just a rebalance.

Considering that the game is looking to be an update to Virtua Fighter 5, I wouldn't expect any gameplay changes different from 5 besides some balance changes.

You're overanalyzing something that has already been explained.
The show intends to solve the question of who would win between A and B when they're both not limited to restrictions including morality. While they try to keep in character as best they can, ultimately when they have the characters go for the kill there's so much they can keep "in character". This particularly affects more the characters that avoid killing because they're definitely killing now. I mean, I would say that more than half the matches wouldn't end in a death if they kept that morality in.

And you my friend, are very welcome.

Yeah, that's how it ended, but there was nothing in that power up that had anything to do with the Sacred Treasures. It could have been anything else. In the 03 and XI endings where he steals Chizuru"s and Iori's powers, and promises to come for Kyo next, it looked like the treasures would be actually relevant to what he was doing (especially after 03 made a point of showing what the mirror could do by creating Kusanagi and Maki, more story relevance that got wasted), and then it turns out he just needed a big power source that could have been anything and the Sacred Treasures happened to be there, and then Kyo's Treasure was ignored (did the sword even play a role in the defeat of Saiki ? I don't remember anything beside beating him up). That's why I said they ended up as a simple macguffin.
They even made flameless Iori which was a cool concept (ugly ass moves though beside the new Ya Otome and Yatagarasu) and in XII it looked like it would actually have a lasting effect, but then literally nothing happened and they even wiped Ash out of existence and rewound it all back. It's like they had two and a half cool ideas but couldn't figure out how to make them work together and then just dropped half of it to wrap it up (and that was when they made XII as half of what they wanted then XIII as the full game and they had to finish up everything before shutting down again).
And I'm not even counting the entire team of "those from the past" that were teased with Mukai but then straight up vanished without doing shit because they came up with them but then never actually used them (I think there's a chick who interferes with Magaki or Shion and that's it ? No ?).

I wouldn't be surprised if they had a story to connect it all better in the beginning but changed it in the end due to the time it took them between game releases (Especially the 5 year gap between XI and XIII). The members of TFTP definitely got shafted in representation since half their grouo was basically "they exist" and that was it.
But if we want to talk about missed potential, there's the dragon power with Kensou and Bao and how Ash Saga completely ignored it and they just remembered "oh yea, that's a thing".

Ironically, Kyo and Iori are going to wind up missing a KOF before them, as they almost did in KOF 99. People love these characters THAT much. Even if it is unlikely to happen, people would enjoy it, I'm pretty sure about that. It would give them some development after 20+ years of being static.
And where are you coming from?
People love Terry, Ryo, Athena, Mai, etc.

It just means they're going to show up in KOF because people will cry if they don't.

Still doesn't mean they will have any relevance to the overall plot.

Okay, that’s twice that you’ve not understood my point. How much clearer do I have to be? I’m not saying that they are ever going to have story relevance, but rather that people would love it if they actually did, for once. Doesn’t mean SNK is actually going to try it. I don’t know where in both of my posts you confused me for straight up saying that they’re going to have actual roles in the story this time around. The most I said was that it would be cool and people would love it.
And my point was that you should take that dream of any non KOF-OC character having plot relevance in KOF and shoot it.

I disagree. They were Ash's target when he was stealing the Sacred Treasures (but then the story veered hard left with Saiki to give Ash a reason to be an anti-hero and somehow forgot what was the point of involving the Sacred Treasures, but in 03 and XI they were front and center with Ash as the villain),

I was under the impression that Ash stole the treasures to power himself up to take on Saiki when he inevitably betrayed him.

I think we’re all ready to have people like Terry, Ryo, Athena, and the Ikaris finally mean something to the plot.
Not happening. Those guys have only been around out of tradition. They could completely miss a KOF and the plot wouldn't change. Well, the Ikaris could be an exception due to their involvement with K' team.

Please take your dream to the back and shoot it.
Make sure you burn the corpse.
