    Athena was a given. I wish Tekken started doing these types of character trailers to build up the hype.

    KoF could be doing character release trailers for the next 2 years.

    you mean like the nina trailer, and the akuma trailer, and the josie, yoshimitsu, jin, devil jin, jack, yoshimitsu and kazumi trailers?

    Other than the Nina and Akuma trailers there haven’t been any recent one to show the roster of Fated Retribution, unless you are counting the character trailers made over an year ago for the arcade release. I could be wrong, but I would require a citation for the last 7-8 characters that you mentioned – I couldn’t find them on the official PlayStation channel or the Bandai Namco channel.

    Luong kinda reminds me a little of Juri…..which is a good thing ^_^ More TKD characters for the win.

    All of the time-release characters on the Arcade version (Josie, Yoshi, Jin, Djinn, Jack, Kazumi, Gigas) got their own trailers for their release.
    Character trailers are primarily used for announcing new characters in an exciting way, why on earth would they make character trailers for characters we have known are in T7 for more than a year?

    We’ll get character trailers for whoever else is going to be in FR, and we’ll get character trailers for any new characters when the console release is close, too.
    Otherwise, character-dedicated trailers aren’t worth it, show off the roster in one trailer unless it’s for new announcements.

    Well quite a few characters that were in Tekken 6 and TTT2 are not present in the arcade version of 7. Namco could start showing who’s in it and demonstrate how they work in the new battle system.Given the usually large roster for Tekken games it could be useful to build up hype over time.

    At least Athena doesn’t look like she got ripped out of the anime. Nelson’s style looks really familiar and I’m not thinking Vanessa’s style.

    Also great to see this time they designed her how she is supposed to look,her design in KOF XIII was an epic fail.

    I’m not blaming them. I just wish they started doing this. Now that Pokken is released and TxSF is likely to release much later than T7, I’d say its reasonable.

    They could, and they still might.
    Characters that haven’t been shown yet are either not finished, not going to be in the game, or are being withheld for a good date to announce them.
    Not every TTT2 character will be in 7, either, TTT2’s roster was far too bloated.
    And they will build up hype over time, they already are, the hype is being spread over such a long period of time that people are complaining about it.
    The console hype will start when the Arcade version is finished.

    Each subsequent Tekken had a bigger roster, so it is reasonable to expect something similar for T7. All I’m saying is that they could release a character trailer every 2 weeks until release day.

    No, it’s not reasonable at all, TTT2’s roster was too large, TTT2 had more characters than T6BR on its initial Arcade release and only increased from there.
    T7 Arcade released with 1/3rd the amount of characters as TTT2 ended with.
    The Tekken team are consolidating and refocusing with T7, expecting a larger roster based on a trend is definitely not reasonable, the trend is already broken.

    Tekken always had a large roster and I don’t see a problem with it. Quite a few of the characters in TTT2 were clones.

    So what’s the problem if they started doing character trailers for the console version? They could be showing the characters specific for the console version if anything.

    Cutting out some gameplay of an already completed character and making a video out of it is not that expensive.

    You didn’t have a problem with it, everyone else did, hence, smaller and consolidated roster in 7.
    The problem is it’s a waste, not just of money to pay people to make them, but the time spent making them, their video editors could be making something worthwhile instead of a character trailer for a character that’s been in the game for a year already.
    You’re acting like they won’t make character trailers for newly added characters as they announce them, despite the fact that’s precisely what they’ve been doing for every character since the Jin release.

    Who is “everyone else”? Citation needed.

    If we pretend for a moment that the character trailers couldn’t be captured from a simple QA session, “video editors could be making something worthwhile” – like what?

    The console version of the game is not out so we haven’t seen the characters that were in the arcade version in motion in the console version.

    “You’re acting like they won’t make character trailers for newly added characters as they announce them” – no I’m not. I just said I wanted for them to start making them.

    “Who is “everyone else”?”
    The dedicated fans who spend thousands of hours playing it nonstop.

    “Citation needed.”
    Tekken Zaibatsu, Tekkenbbs, Tekken Central, dcinside.

    “The console version of the game is not out”
    Nor has it even started development yet.

    “we haven’t seen the characters that were in the arcade version in motion in the console version.”
    The console version is not special, it is a port, the characters will look the same.

    “I just said I wanted for them to start making them.”
    And that statement directly implies that they aren’t going to, language son.

    “The dedicated fans who spend thousands of hours playing it nonstop.” – anecdotal evidence is no evidence whatsoever.

    “Tekken Zaibatsu, Tekkenbbs, Tekken Central, dcinside.” – those are not citations. You might as well have put in Google or the Internet. Is there any poll indicating the dissatisfaction with the number of characters in TTT2?

    “Nor has it even started development yet.” – I guess that Akuma trailer didn’t happen then?

    “The console version is not special, it is a port, the characters will look the same.” – you can see the future?

    “And that statement directly implies that they aren’t going to, language son.” – no, it doesn’t. It just states that I want to see them. To imply that they’ll never do so I’d have to say “Bandai will never does similar character trailers.”. Simple.

    Nobody presented any evidence, they’re opinions.

    The subjective opinions of players cannot be cited, you’re demanding a citation that you know does not exist on purpose.

    The Akuma trailer is for the arcade version, the console version has not started development yet.

    Do you actually think a console port will look or play differently? Do you know what a port is?

    That’s not an implication you moron, that’s a direct statement.
    Look up the definition of implication.

    So we can deny your opinion of the bloated roster, since it is just that – an opinion, that has nothing to do with what we’ve discussed.

    Tekken 7 Fated Retribution is the one coming to consoles, so it is quite likely that they started development. Even if it wasn’t you don’t really know if they started development of the console version, or is this your opinion again?

    You have failed to show how in any way I’ve implied that they’ll never release new trailers by wanting them to release new trailers.

    I’m quite impressed with how petty you are. I never suspected that wanting to see more content would butt hurt someone so badly.

    “So we can deny your opinion of the bloated roster, since it is just that”
    It’s not my opinion, it’s the opinion of high level players, Tekken demands extensive knowledge of the entire cast of characters in high level play, as a high level player, I don’t have that demand.
    I told you the opinion of the players that mattered from the start, you can’t demand an answer to be based on fact when it is fundamentally an opinion.
    Regardless, the actual fact is that Bamco knows TTT2 was bloated, Michael Murray said as much at the evo panel last year, we won’t be getting a TTT2 sized roster because of that, can we drop this non-issue you are?

    “Tekken 7 Fated Retribution is the one coming to consoles, so it is quite likely that they started development”
    They have stated multiple times that the team are working full time on FR Arcade since the completion of the Summer Lesson tech demo, it’s not likely at all because the Arcade version won’t be fully complete for months after release, because of their time-release character schedule which they have already confirmed they will be sticking to again in FR.

    “You have failed to show how in any way I’ve implied that they’ll never release new trailers by wanting them to release new trailers.”
    Because you don’t understand English.
    I wish I could fly=can’t fly
    I wish I was rich=not rich
    If you could fly or you were rich, the statement wouldn’t make sense, the implication comes with the sentence, learn your language, jesus.

    “I never suspected that wanting to see more content would butt hurt someone so badly.”
    Character trailers are not content, they are a good marketing tool when announcing new characters, if the characters are already there, they are a waste, I’d prefer the Tekken team to not waste money since their budget has decreased for this game.
    I’m spending meaningless minutes typing things on the internet and somehow you projected butthurt onto that?
    If you need to project butthurt onto me to feel better, go ahead.

    You brought up the character number issue in the first place and failed to provide any evidence for the supposed issue other than your anecdotal personal experience.

    Using your examples:
    I wish I could fly=can’t fly != I won’t be able to fly
    I wish I was rich=not rich != I’ll never be rich
    I wish they made trailers = there currently aren’t making them != they will never make them

    So, yeah. It seems that you don’t understand what I was say. Hope it is all clear now.

    “Character trailers are not content” – but characters are content and their trailers is allowing me to see that content.

    “That’s not an implication you moron” – petty insults usually are a sign of butthurt.

    “You brought up the character number issue in the first place”
    No, you did, I told you why your assumption that the roster would be larger is unfounded.
    I never provided my anectodal personal experience, I’m not averse to large rosters at all because it doesn’t affect me personally, it does affect the competitive players who play large amounts of people who have become Bamco’s primary source of income since 5 or earlier, they are the people who said TTT2s roster was bloated, and they are the people Bamco are listening to.
    That’s it, nothing else.

    “can’t fly != I won’t be able to fly”
    That’s exactly what that means, are you going to spread wings and start flying?

    “not rich != I’ll never be rich”
    Implied in wishing for it instead of working toward it, this shit is lost on you.

    “It seems that you don’t understand what I was saying”
    Only because your choice of words was bad, use hope instead of wish next time and nobody will misunderstand.

    “their trailers is allowing me to see that content.”
    You realize there are hundreds and hundreds of hours of content for all the characters already all over the internet? And as soon as FR Arcade is released that will apply to their FR iterations too?
    Characters are showcased in regular all-encompassing trailers if you are desperate to see a character in a trailer setting specifically, if you want to see them play, go look at someone play them.

    “petty insults usually are a sign of butthurt.”
    If you can’t handle bantz, I’d assert that you’re the butthurt one.

    You said that the TTT2 roster was bloated. I just assumed that the console version will have more characters.

    “I never provided my anecdotal personal experience” and “I play locally with a small pool of less than 20 other players” – lol. Also your imaginary “high level players” seem pretty anecdotal to me.

    “”can’t fly != I won’t be able to fly”
    That’s exactly what that means, are you going to spread wings and start flying?” – I might. Or I may have a fear of planes. The sentence I can’t fly means I currently can’t fly. Same with being rich. I’m not currently rich, but this doesn’t mean I won’t be in the future.

    “Only because your choice of words was bad, use hope instead of wish next time” – oh, how could I not recognise you? You are from the Speech Police. I’m sorry. I didn’t know I was using synonyms you didn’t like. I’ll keep that in mind for the future.

    Or I could still want them to hype their own game and see gameplay of the characters I’m interested of whenever I want.

    Oh, is don’t mind banter, I just pointed out that the ones throwing the insults are the mad ones.

    “You said that the TTT2 roster was bloated”
    Yes, repeating the popular opinion from the competitive Arcade audience and high level players, as they are the reason T7s roster is scaled back.

    “lol”
    Uh, yeah, what’s hard to understand about this?
    I repeated the experience of other people, my experience is the complete opposite, I don’t worry about large rosters because my local player pool is too small to make it an issue.

    “Also your imaginary “high level players” seem pretty anecdotal to me.”
    Oh right, the Tekken project listens to me and my imaginary high level players, of course.
    You’re still using terms of objective evidence for what is fundamentally impossible to be objective, as I have already explained.

    “You are from the Speech Police.”
    No, I’m explaining to you the reason why 2 people misunderstood what you were trying to say, you used a word that implied something that you are saying you didn’t mean to imply, learn the lesson and move on.

    “The sentence I can’t fly”
    Now you’re not even talking about wishing for something anymore.
    I’m going to drop this, you don’t understand contextual implications in the English language, that’s all.

    “Or I could still want them to hype their own game and see gameplay of the characters I’m interested of whenever I want.”
    That is the exact situation we are in right now, they hype their game, you type a character name into Youtube and see hundreds of hours of footage whenever you want.
    Having a 2 minute video that showcases nothing that isn’t in every single match in every video at the top of the list really doesn’t make this situation more favorable for anyone

    “Oh, is don’t mind banter, I just pointed out that the ones throwing the insults are the mad ones.”
    You are literally saying that you don’t mind banter but I am butthurt because I was bantering.
    Good on you.

    “repeating the popular opinion” – you are yet to prove that this is the popular opinion.

    I laughed since I pointed out exactly where you gave your anecdotal personal experience it was in the sentence “I play locally with a small pool of less than 20 other players”.

    “objective evidence for what is fundamentally impossible to be objective” – so you are not objective and I can completely dismiss that point – got it.

    Wish and hope are synonyms in this context. I guess such a long word is hard to understand. It is quite obvious that you are the one in need of lessons.

    I will seriously have to spell it out it seems. I want them to release character trailers on their offcial channels and not have to look for gameplay from some random YouTube schmuck. I don’t see what is so sacrilegious about that.

    “Having a 2 minute video that showcases nothing that isn’t in every
    single match in every video at the top of the list really doesn’t make
    this situation more favorable for anyone” – yes it does. Having that video on an official channel like the PlayStation or Bamco one raised the awareness far more than some random Let’s player giving the game a try.

    “you are yet to prove that this is the popular opinion.”
    Watch the Evo panel, it is the popular opinion that Bamco are specifically listening to.

    “I laughed since I pointed out exactly where you gave your anecdotal personal experience”
    Ok, except you told me I gave you my personal experience as evidence that the roster is bloated, I explained to you why it wasn’t my experience, understand yet?

    “so you are not objective and I can completely dismiss that point”
    I am objective, that point is not objective, the objective fact is that it is the popular opinion and Bamco are making the roster smaller based on that opinion, but whether the roster is bloated or not is literally impossible to be an objective fact, you pretend to sit on the high ground demanding evidence that an opinion is correct while you know full well it is and can only be an opinion.

    “Wish and hope are synonyms in this context”
    Except they aren’t, wish implied that they aren’t and won’t make character trailers, hope implies that you don’t know.
    See: The 2 people who misunderstood what you were saying purely based on this word, that would not have misunderstood if you used the correct word.

    “I don’t see what is so sacrilegious about that.”
    Not sacrilegious, just petty, and a waste of Bamco’s time and money.
    The gameplay you’ll see on Taktak, Kurokuro, Shudy, etc. videos is more encompassing than any character trailer.

    “Having that video on an official channel like the PlayStation or Bamco one raised the awareness far more than some random Let’s player giving the game a try.”
    That’s what the general trailers are for, making the general trailers more efficiently generates hype, instead of making trailers to show off characters everyone has already seen lots of footage of, they get hyped for what’s to come, that’s a pretty key component, get consumers excited for what they don’t already have.
    Drip-feeding character content like with the time release characters and the new FR characters simply won’t be effective for characters that already have tons of content for, when you make a mouse choose between a slow-release source of food and a giant tub of food, it will choose the giant tub almost every time.
    When it only has the slow-release, it will take food from the slow-release source.

    “Watch the Evo panel” – surprise, surprise – no

    evidence whatsoever. Again. I’m not going to go look for evidence to prove your point. It is your job to back up your claims. Weaselling out with “impossible to be an objective fact” simply means you can’t prove what you stated. Well I can say that the 99% of people agree with me that the roster is just fine. “Just ask anyone. You can check my favourite forum/blog/website – everyone agrees with me!”.

    “waste of Bamco’s time and money” – so is it a waste of SNK’s time and money to create trailers for their characters? If so why do they do it in the first place? I mean it must cost millions of dollars and thousands of dev hours to create 60 seconds of footage.

    “See: The 2 people who misunderstood what you were saying purely based on
    this word, that would not have misunderstood if you used the correct word.” – This is what we call argumentum ad populum or appeal to popularity – a logical fallacy. This is how you provide evidence:

    http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/english-thesaurus/wish

    http://www.thesaurus.com/browse/wish

    You will notice that “hope” is a synonym for “wish”.

    By the logic of that last paragraph they should just make one giant trailer 4 days before release with the assumption that people already watched the characters in action. It’ll be fine. Brilliant business strategy. Why not make both general and character trailers? Well of course we established that 60 seconds of introduction trailers are waaaaay too expensive for a small time developer like Bandai Namco to manage.
