dude no fighting game EVER made someone figure out the character ingame
thats not true o.0 most have secret characters, quite a few actually. id rather have no more reveals xD than find the big fanboys that are "boycotting" this game, find out the day after it comes out that the characters are in, and see them rush out to get a copy meanwhile the people that love the roster as is get the costumes for preordering xD
Personally, I would rather be pleasantly surprised to find someone in I didn't expect rather than have them all blurted out at once. It's like those kids who opened their Christmas presents on the Eve and then are dissapointed when everyone else is opening theirs the day of and they have nothing to do.
I feel like the internet has ruined surprises for me. god **bleep**. i remember jumping into Smash Bros Melee as a kid and not knowing ANY of the secret characters. Was such a great feeling when a new foe appeared.
