Seems like a bizarre way of doing things unless the upfront release is like, half price or something. I had heard the price in Japan will probably be 5800 yen, which I believe is below the average? If so it's an interesting experiment.

If not then lol

Cynical to break up the RWBY girls like that though.

Kinda hate breaking up the RWBY team into DLC

NOt to mention ARC probably just turned off hundreds of people off this game with suddenly having 20 DLC characters. I'll probably still get it because i like the concept but boy that's a wild choice.

I lost most of the hype when I saw the the 50:50 ratio split of characters and then the rwby split(mostly wanted to play Weiss and Yang), probably will buy later date when some kind of ultimate edition comes out.

Well Arc took the Capcom route of DLC. Especially the SFXT kind.

I won't buy it until the price goes like 20 bucks.

Really ASW? Splitting up half of Team RWBY as DLC?
It would fine if it was Cinder, Raven or Pyrrha but two of the main heroines of RWBY? Sad

"The base game will feature 20 characters, and 20 more characters will be available via DLC. "

Locking half of the roster behind DLC? This is a new low.

Damn it, really ARC? I was excited for this, but 20 DLC characters, and only 2 RWBY characters in the base game?! Yeah, no, i'll wait for a 'ultimate' edition with everyone included.
Announcing 20 characters as DLC 6 months before the game is even finished is freaking low!

Unless this game is $60 (which includes all of the DLC) I'm not buying it.

Hello, Blake. I might have to watch that RBWY show now.

20 characters as DLC? Mother of Pearl!

wow theres goes like 80% of my hype for this game.
while I'm really annoyed about this decision the extra characters had better be really cheap or free, or the base game should be cheaper than normal since we are getting exactly half the roster.

That said trying to look for a positive reason for doing this I'd understand them doing this if they want to push the game's release date as soon as possible and the other 20 characters aren't finished development yet.... but I mean 20+ unfinished characters? even that seems very unlikely.
God f***ing damn it there had better be P3 MC in here somewhere. If he's not ima be so mad.

Well...There goes all the excitement for Cross Tag Battle with half the roster being relegated to the DLC paywall. The title isn't worth its $60 unless it has ALL of its content available on-disk.

Announcing 20 DLCs, almost 5 months before the release? Oof.

I won't lie, I wasn't thinking about getting this game, but now I'm definitely even less interested.

I might be wrong but ASW has never done anything like this so yeah I believe you.

This is just beyond dumb. This is like if Dragonball Fighterz made regular Goku and Vegeta DLC. Really doesn't make sense. spoiler[Unless they are trying to emulate the last two volumes of the show where the team has been split up.] Doubt it though.

Jim Sterling did not like this move at all, especially on locking a lot of things in Paid DLC...
