As far as Kensou goes, well there is manga revolving around Shingo ongoing right now.
Oh yeah, the good news is that Chin is probably gone, and if not, it means we might see a Masters team like in 98. It'll be weird seeing Kensou in a team without Athena though (I'm blocking out a team of Kensou, Chin, and someone else, please no Momoko / Bao).

The face of someone who's been through 15 yearly tournaments;
I keep thinking it's weird but SNK did say they stopped caring about the year number early on, they haven't aged more than a couple years since 97 and they just gave up giving everyone an official age beside the original one.

My fav is still that 02 version, Eolith monkey art style notwithstanding. That top looks great but the skirt looks so weird like it's part of the top and she has nothing below.

The clothes look good except for the fact that she's just bottomless for reasons ??
the silhouette was just nothing like the actual portrait after all.

Apparently, there will not be a Vol.1-2 for Battle Cards as all are in one banner for cards.
Well there's only 4 non-duplicate characters and all 4 cards are in vol1, so...
I think I'll wait for vol2 with regular Nyotengu and swimsuit Honoka, I want those red units (skipping on SSMai was a mistake).
Oh, the dimension exchange opened a cool option exclusively for the DoA banner, if you get DoA memories of a unit you don't care about, you can flush 3 of them for one SS memory. Would've been cool for the others, I had like 5 extra memories of BS Rugal, 2 of NGeese, and 3 of BSOZero trying to get more of Orochi, Krizalid and Igniz.

Not holding my breath for a return of Tekken or SamSho collabs. Jin, Kazuya and Heihachi would all need an overhaul, but I don't think I'd want three Jins anyway, even if the current 2 are irrelevant (and I don't want Devil Jin's moves or massive wings). I'd be down for a Kazuya with that shirt-vest combo, and Heihachi with his Tekken 3 topless kimono (not the tiger karategi) but apparently Bamco forgot that outfit existed long ago.

edit - got Marie Rose early in that randomized grid in a fluke. Took her to the Beach of Paradise, it's a ladder of increasing difficulty like the tower of trials that's only playable with DoA characters. Top of the ladder requires a CP of 74k, you know, in case you can max awaken those FES / Signature characters.

All 4 of them will also come with swimsuit variations.  That's another 8 FES units in total.  Cheers.
Aaaand the 4 swimsuit versions are FES, but the non-swimsuit are Special Signature. So the 2 free units are Signature, wow.

In the mission system revamp, I already can't get the guild-related ones and the limit break ones since I already max limit broke everyone. Cool cool cool.

Comic-con panel for the 2022 movie, Super Hero. Quick teaser near the end (just the title card with music basically), a Goku animation that seem to say the movie will be a lot more 3D (still half 2D probably) than classic 2D, and some character artworks of Piccolo, Krillin, kindergarten Pan, and a pair of new guys. Since Pan is growing up a little, I really hope we'll finally see Goten and Trunks start growing up too. We're getting really close to the final chapter of the manga if Pan is almost 4 (and yet I don't think we'll see Bulma appear nearly as old as she looks in that chapter).
Also lol, Piccolo actually has a house, Namekian style.
So, not Janenba after all. ... Well, maybe.

So far we've only seen old faces.

...because they want to show all the old characters first before getting to the new ones?
More like returning characters are already mostly done and new characters (that weren't in XIV) have to be done from scratch, it's definitely not finalized yet. We still got 4 of those already (returning old characters), that's a lot right from the start. As for brand new characters, given the type of characters they've been going with lately, it's not the kind of new faces that bring hype.
So I'd expect both new faces and returning old characters will be saved for much later.

Glad to see Vegeta finally having a thing of his own, but yeah, that design is leaning too heavily on the monkey thing. Especially with that pose with that angle.
I'm curious about where that story is going but I don't quite have a good feel for it yet. It's cool that they're doing really new and unique story arcs with both Goku and Vegeta learning more about different paths to god powers in the background.

I just assumed Kishima would be one of the first to be cut out of the reduced character list, glad to see he made it.
So the movelist is the exact same, just with fresh animations then. Meh.

Picked up Skyward Sword.
You know how they touched up the controls to chose between buttons and motion ? Well, it's still bad. You have camera controls, but on button control, you basically need to hold L 100% of the time unless you want to be swinging your sword at empty air by mistake all the time. As for the motion controls, if you're playing with a controller, then it has a really hard time distinguishing between a shield bash and a thrust or even a swing.
Also the gyro control is still shit and straight up impossible to figure out where it's even aiming and where it'll take you when you tilt anywhere, so you have to reset the gyro every single time you do anything. Took me a good couple minutes to pull out that sword in the statue.
It already feels like it'll be a pain to finish the whole game with either version, again.

Apparently it was announced that Jojolion chapter from August 19 will be the final chapter. So I guess the stakes stop here and Araki is not pulling another guy out of nowhere who's also after the fruit because reasons. What even is there to wrap up after they killed like 70% of the cast in the last few chapters ?

Didn't they say last time that they would be doing announcements once every other week now instead of every week ? We got Ramon last week, there's nothing this week.

I want to say I expect DoA because it has girls, but DoA is much less alive than Dynasty Warriors / Samurai Warriors, both of which have stuff currently planned.

I got lv50 BS Igniz, and I'm hitting 270M on the spider mech with BSIgniz, NGeese, regular Geese (with shock moon & sun silver imprint stones and an extra Nightmare Rashoumon), and Mr Karate & Goenitz with the chill valentine card. I was stuck around 220 just before (with regular Igniz instead of BS Igniz).

It could be any of a million things that don't feed into the "We were lied to!!  Nintendo are liars to us!!" narrative that's spiraling around this announcement.
Dude, absolutely no one has said that. Don't pretend to misunderstand what people are mad about just so you can claim that it's everyone else who's crazy.
Also, it's not "Bloomberg's source" like it was just one guy. You're just grossly misrepresenting what was going on. (btw the Bloomberg article in question was very specific on the OLED part from Samsung and that's exactly what it was, but it also talked about 4K support and performances comparable to a PS4Pro for a price upgrade of $100 and that didn't happen)
More details in this random article :
Spoiler, click to toggle visibilty
This was coming from big Asian companies and economic journals. Google is giving me a bunch of other news sites that are recapping how the rumor of a Switch Pro evolved (the name Switch Pro even came from that March Bloomberg report in the first place).

You might be conflating this with other stuff that Nintendo did lie about, but the Pro thing wasn't something Nintendo themselves said, and nobody is saying they did. They said other stuff about other things that were lies, maybe you're looking at people who are putting that in one big bag and being mad that Nintendo lies in general.

its exactly the SwitchXL.
Personally I'd even go with Switch L.

Like 1Ultima said, Bloomberg's article was pretty specific, with reports on hardware construction lines and industrial quarterly reports of hardware companies and stuff. There was everything you could want short of an official announcement. It's pretty disingenuous to throw it all under "anonymous inside sources", this was absolutely not some rando forum and YouTube talk. They 100% had something concrete and they scrapped it before the end.

The whole "anti-leak snipers and total opacity" attitude that many big entertainment companies have is some serious bullshit. We can see it, it's right there in front of us, why even lie. It's the same with Zelda, we know they have stuff, they just decided not to sell it.

Expected. There were rumors for several months that a switch pro was in the work with a better processor and whatever. Bloomberg was talking about it. People were looking forward to that because the Switch has a hard time keeping up with a bunch of games. There were other rumors too, and none of them came true, so it's a shitty disappointment.

I don't have any other forum left that still has a developed "others" section with a varied enough userbase that doesn't all have the exact same centers of interest, and I don't want to join a brand new community for that.

The event also comes with the dreaded Carnival icon that rewards a BS Memory upon completing the score.  HOWEVER, this is heavily dependent on cards now.  As always, 6* cards net the highest score, but it will take a while to get enough.
I had somewhere between 15 and 20 pages of cards in my mailbox, I went through picking the 6* cards, threw in some card selectors I had left over from other events that I never collected, and just like that I shot to over halfway through in the carnival, almost 2/3. I did notice that the drop rate for 6* cards was lower than the first time around, where I almost got to the end in a day. (edit - just checked and I mean in term of the number of rewards... in term of points, I'm barely a third through it)
Also 35 000 rubies got me 6 copies of BSOZero (plus a couple copies of the 6* option card) and no Igniz. (I give zero shit about the collab, with the track record so far, I'll need to know what it is BEFORE I even consider putting rubies in it)
