Looking into the game code...

6 replies 221 views Edited Nov 23, 2012

Well not exactly game code itself. Heck yes misleading title! But I did realize something quite interesting.

 

You know those 'pages' of stages? On the PS Vita version, the Stage Screen has exactly 15 stages on the first stage, and 7 on the second. (including random icons).

 

Right now there are exactly 8 stage slots on the second page. Open, sitting there, like something is supposed to fill it in.

 

However on the PS3 version, there is no random select on Page 2. In fact this brings it up to 9 stages.

 

TL;DR speaking, they have 8 open stage slots until a Page 3 on the Vita, and 9 open stage slots until a Page 3 on the PS3.

 

So I sat down and thought about it again. What if the character select screen, has a Page 2? What if there is another 20 characters that they're making? Its unheard of, right? But where are they going to put Kat and Emmett? They can't exactly put them on the sides, that'd be kind of weird proportionally. What if in the star section, it brings up and L1 or R1 to show that there are additional character pages?

 

Unbeknownst to the community there is usually a DLC limit to how much you can actually put into the game before it becomes full (See Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3). What they did here though is astounding; they're implying that there is 'no' downloadable content limit. Which for a fighting game is quite impressive.

So while you're trying to select a character I'll be skipping to another "page" with fighters, to keep you from getting to your fighter? xD
Party trolling ftw.
There's plenty of space on the sides of the characters right now. They'll just make the star pictures smaller and that's that.
They've thought ahead on this one, don't worry.

There is enough room for them to add up to 16 characters on the side without changing the character select screen at all. Don't overthink it

I find it kind of funny that they made an entirely separate page for Sir Dan`s minion.

This is just blind speculation. The two pictures on either side of the characters will either vanish or shrink.

Didn't think of that one actually. Huh.

 

Ah well.
