I think what they mean with the DLC characters is that they will "look" stronger.
If you compare New Iori and Iori with flames, witch one look stronger?
Ofc Ioir with flames will look more powerful thanks of the flame effects.
Cause why would they make such an effort to balance the console version so good otherwise?
would not make sense, they will make them look awesome to make people buy them.
That is what i think about this topic with the DLC characters so am not worried at all.

And I just signed up to this forum cause KOFXIII is awesome =P

Welcome to DC Libix, hope you enjoy your stay!

BTW guys, why can't we get our hands on some "good" scans from the Arcadia Magazine? It's been 3 days already, I thought someone would have find them by now.

No no its fine, can you explain why it do not make sense?
Would like to hear your opinion =)

I just look at it from a company view point, that want to sell a product.
If the product looks boring and dull(a character in this case), it would not be so inviting to buy it.
I think they are going with a "wow" moment when you see the new DLC characters
Like: "damn this character looks awesome! need to get him/her and test her out!"
Maybe I'm wrong but that what I think.

i dont see the point of making a character "look" strong only to end up having people buy him/her then complain that this said dlc character sucks i mean if i expected someone strong i would expect to see someone with high damage with decent/some what low health not somebody who does sup-par damage and has decent health despite the fact that he looks like he could wreck somebody's shit

Someone on another forum said they saw a better one, but I've yet to find it myself. I really thought we'd see a better one now too, between places like KoFUnion and SpekSNK... but hasn't seemed to happen yet :(

It's really not too far off. Flames Iori's fire explosion is stupid-huge in his neomax. The first time I saw that, I figured it was overkill, effect-wise, to try and make the character look more appealing. A lot of gaming sales are driven by first-impression style stuff. The tourney scene will value the characters long term validity, but the more casual players will value their purchases looking worth the money.

But we'll see.

Cant a character look cool and strong, have great effects and still be balanced?
Why is that such a bad thing? it is a good marketing tool to use
A character could have attacks that could look very cool, while the moves are still balanced.
And also, who don't want awesome fighters in a fighting game? xD

This!, you understand what I mean <3. But I'm very sorry if I write bad, its soon 6 AM here in Sweden =_=
Well I'm off to bed now!

I agree with Libix. When you think about it, the casuals will not care about whether a character is good or not; they will buy based on looks and recognition. Then you have the competitive players that will buy the DLC regardless, op or not. So enticing people with high tier characters doesn't work on both ends.

Welcome Libix, is nice to see more european people here. Looks like DC is an overseas community. And is nice to see someone from Shiranui dojo xD

Maybe you are right, maybe when they said "a bit stronger" they meant "they will look more powerful at first sight, but they will balanced". But I must confess for me it sounds more like "they will be top tiers, so everybody will want to buy them...". We will see.

Shocked because we don't have a better scan of Arcadia silouettes yet.

They keep coming back man. They don't die; they multiply.

Anyway, back to KoF, how do you think arcades are going to deal with the PS3 to cab thing?

The PS3/360 Cab is mostly for the US. Japan will most likely get an Arcade Update a few months after the Console release.
