Just list the character, game & uniqueness (explain if necessary)
Kat-Gravity Rush-gravity control
Emmett-Starhawk-build in battle
Prince-Prince of Persia-time control
I see what you're saying. You want charecters like sly who approach conflict differently. I too enjoy the twist superbot has put on their charecters and I feel we as fans should recomend more charecters that give them a chance to challenge themselve srather then limit themselves.
I can't see how Time control could work :/
Heihachi can spawn an item,the beachball from tekken ball,and other players can kick it to hit they're opponents
The time control could only really work as a super, kidn of like Dante's Devil Trigger, where everyone slows down. It would be too powerful as a regular attack UNLESS they invest time into making the Prince have another meter that fills up as he attacks people, which he can use to slow down time. I think it would be a little too cheap, though.
I didn't know about the beach ball that's cool. But yea time control would have to be with supers or maybe like a sly smoke bomb where it affects the person momentarly or part of a comb the longer the combo the slower time gets. Here's a thought. His level 3 can be rewind and takes back people's kills (his deaths)
They can have an interesting mechanic. Like Sly, their L1 will not block, but will cause them to hold hands. While they are holding hands 2 things can happen he can be invincible but cannot attack, or they can gain AP while holding hands until they are hit. I think that might be an interesting game mechanic.
