The game has 40 characters and 20 of them are locked away as DLC.
YES. Half the roster is DLC. The base launcher has 10 BlazBlue Characters, 4 Persona characters and ONLY 2 RWBY characters and 4 Under Night Characters.
There are no Adachi, Terumi or any Persona 4 Ultimax characters, Heck the full investigation team isn't even playable at launch (naoto,kanji,teddie, all the persona 3 characters etc are all locked away as DLC)
This is actually disgusting and I'm honestly 100% disappointed in Arc System Works. This is completely unacceptable in my opinion. I'm definitely passing on this game.
It is like they gave up and put everyone on Dragon Ball.
