FES Hotaru (purple defense) has been datamined on the usual gigaproto channel. Nice, it'll give me something to spend my rubies on whenever she comes out (after the collab I assume). It's just a shame that Jenet wasn't a FES, she's super good and she only lacks the top of the FES brokenness (and a 3PG card torpedo kicks).

Why link to a Youtube video ON an article on another site ? Why not directly link to the source rather than to people talking about it ?

Vah Rudania action, and a Zora region stage
Looks like the boomerang weapon replaces the charged spin attack with a boomerang throw. Now to see if other weapons have similar unique perks.

edit

The blights attacking the divine beasts, awakened Zelda with the Triforce and the Bow of Light , aaaaand teasing the ocarina of Time. Not the song of Time, just Zelda's Lullaby, but at least it suggests the ocarina has remained in the royal family's possession since OoT - that' what I'm expecting instead of an actual OoT crossover anyway, and it's probably how they'll explain whatever they do with time travel.

Edit again
Got the game, played Mipha (and Vah Ruta). Strong attack creates a small geyser at a distance, personal action has her dive and reappear leaping out of the distant geyser, perform an air combo from there.
Her water attacks will heal allies, even her special. The special doesn't seem to hit, but it does deal damage to enemies... I think ?

When you upgrade weapons, passing certain levels on the weapon gives you a new skill slot for that weapon to take from a weapon you fuse into it, so plan out your fusions.

Uh-oh. One of the tips from the loading screen says

Well, the lullaby was the guardian singing, not the ocarina. Why even tease it in a trailer like that.

Edit again

I lost hope for Andy when they made the ninja outfit gold with no bleed. FES Andy should just be 98 Andy but FES. Maybe reorganize his specials (ditch the Kuuhadan, put an EX Zan'eiken followed by the flip kick... Who the fuck needs anti-air moves in a game where you can't jump)
Kasumi 99 has been part of those datamined stuff for ever, you know she'll be gold with the same 3 shit moves. They have good moves for her, they created a nice one for her Christmas version, but you know they'll never use it again...

Yeah, I forgot about Mai. I'll assume O Yashiro and Mai win those polls (Orochi deserves to win but Yashiro has been a meme for too long). ... actually I don't even know what they could do with Yashiro, his problems is that he has nothing but grabs, that's exclusively good for PvP and nothing else. What would they even fix ?

Oh shit, the official Facebook page is teasing Mr. Karate, finally. I was already expecting to wait yet another week.

The official forum put up a survey asking us which FES character needs a rework.
Quote
'97 Orochi Leona
'97 Orochi Yashiro
'97 Orochi Chris
'97 Orochi
2000 Zero (Clone)
2001 Zero (Original)
2001 Igniz
2003 Ash
2003 Mukai
2003 Terry Bogard
XIII NESTS Style Kyo
Also asking who we want to see as FES.
I see Orochi Shermie is the only Orochi they think is okay. Sure she can stunlock for ever, but she still takes forever to do any damage. Why don't you make OShermie a balance (but keep the same damage) and OChris an attack, that'll be a start.
NESTS Kyo doesn't need anything if we get a 03/XI black jacket FES Kyo (and I hope Mr Karate will be a great red to rival Geese, no need to make Kyo XIII a strong red), Ash and Terry are fine, just boring, Igniz doesn't need anything. The Orochis need another overhaul (especially Orochi since we won't get another version of him), and I'd say OZero needs some major fixes (he's slow, he just won't turn around when you try to chain multiple skills, summon Krizalid too close to a wall and it'll completely whiff...)
I just want a FES Mature XIII that's a clone of the XII (design and skills) but with Sacrilege instead of the grab, and good cores. Also someone like a good King with Silent Flash or Robert with Hien Senpuu Juudan Kyaku.

You're watching it, they're living it. The blog post says the DLC was written after the author started figuring things out, so the main game is still the same thing : that's just what it looks like when someone who doesn't have those struggles watches someone ho has them but hasn't figured it out yet. Even without the DLC. What this should tell you is, maybe people who look like that have similar struggles that I don't see.

I very vaguely heard about that stuff and I don't even know what the game is, but if the author says "I based the character on my own personal struggles" and then the author also says "actually after writing all this, I realized X and Y about myself", it seems pretty obvious that the character being based on the same struggle gets the same answer. This isn't about you wanting to imagine what the character is in your own head, this is about what the author learned about themselves, it doesn't really matter how you interpreted that backstory. If the game does reflect the author's own struggles, all that means is that you are misunderstanding the author, maybe because you don't recognize it and don't expect it.
Also apparently other people with similar experience immediately recognized it, it seems ? Maybe what you think means something else is just how it looks like for someone who has those struggles, as seen by someone who doesn't.

The character showcases came with a few Japanese articles showing a whole bunch of screenshots. Not a lot of very revealing stuff (beside Kohga invading the Gerudo throne room, and a section where Gerudos are your enemies but that could be a training stage, and a lot of shots showing battles against Moblins inside various shrines), except for this one : https://www.inside-games.jp/article/2020/11/06/129963.html

Face reveal for the mystery villain. Also confirmed by the text to be a guy.
More and more Gerudo imagery with that red gem in his necklace, and apparently red hair after all, they really put it in your face that he's got to be a Gerudo male. The losange patterns on the front of the robe kinda reminds you of Ghirahim.

Oh yeah, also Dorephan's face close-up here :
https://dengekionline.com/articles/55573/
He already has that scar, I thought he got it during the 100 year gap from a wandering Guardian ?
There was also a shot of teeny tiny Sidon holding a Zora spear five times his size behind a threatening Lynel but I can't find it. edit - there he is https://game.watch.impress.co.jp/docs/kikaku/1286444.html bottom left on the Lynel shot, just before his close-up shot.

It's a Musou game. You'll see the difference in hard mode, and it won't be because the enemies have smarter behavior. They don't need to.

Why do people say Hibiki ? Because of CvS2 ? Yuki is currently in the mobile game SNK All Star, if you want recognizability. You may say SNK All Star has little popularity power, but here's a reminder that CvS2 was about twenty years ago.
edit - oh wait, SNK All Star also has Lee and Kaede. Is that what you meant ?

I think Kagami Shinnosuke is functionally immortal, but he was still born in 1833. Personally, I absolutely loved the two Shinsengumi. Minakata was cool too.
Musashi is the actual Musashi but he was dead inbetween his time and Shinnosuke reviving him. Okina is 128 years old so he should fit the era, but then he'd be young and that's not happening and there won't be any story about when they lived.

Core memories at the exchange shop got shifted to those that are polular meta.  Goenitz, Nameless, Ms. Big.
The hall of memories shop from the elemental boss you mean ? Seems like it's random for everyone. I have Igniz, Kyo 13, O Zero, Iori 13 and I forget who else.
Mr Karate didn't come out but his skill icons were datamined, so probably next week with Chris.

Can't find it on French Play Store, and I'm not bothering with changing my location to see where it's up. I only saw it because it suddenly showed up in Japanese on my Youtube feed but it's been out for several months now ?
It does look like it's available in most of Asia, I saw it on the Taiwanese Play Store, which I assume has that English version (and that's what I'm seeing all over Youtube, but pretty much only Asian channels), but I can't download it because it's not my region.

Looks like it runs on a gacha system, and a card system on top of that. So the usual kind of F2P but not really.
Also it has Dash characters (Rock Volnutt, Tron), regular Megaman characters (blue, Super Megaman in red, tiny Roll, Proto Man), Zero characters (Zero, Ciel, Leviathan), and ZX (Aile, Pandora). Then a whole bunch of X armors and some X side characters (including Vile and Command Mission X although that one seems to be a costume for regular X). I'm also seeing a Halloween Vile going around and some seasonal event characters, but no Bass, no Harpuia / Storm Eagle, and no playable boss - yet ? It's still getting new updates with new characters.
