No unlockable characters is almost a deal breaker for me. I could live if there wasn't a single character I wanted, but unlocking stuff (in particular characters) in fighting games is all the fun. If its just thrown at you, you have nothing to stride for and ultimately you play it a lot less.
yeah. someone needs to talk to superbot about this...
Usually most fighters for this gen have at least most of the roster unlocked. So I'm guessing Superbot wants to appeal to the hardcore fighters. Plus, it's a pain to unlock all of the characters for an offline tournament.
That's disappointing to hear, I was really hoping for unlockable characters. I mean we had an entire thread with a good hundred plus votes from the community requesting for unlockables (characters or otherwise, but mostly referring to characters).
