[QUOTE] Was Sen part of any timeline or was it a new start? In the main timeline, half of the interesting characters are dead (as they should in a chambara game), so if they want Nakoruru, Genjurou, Kazuki, Mina and others to appear, they'll either have to create time portals or chain resurrections, or yet again start anew... I wouldn't be against a fresh start. The scenario is complicated as it is, and unlike KOF, there's no easy reset button. Hopefully they'll manage to keep the violence restrained and elegant, like SSS or Zero, and not like Sen's gross finishes. The fact that they're specifically aiming at the Chinese market instead of the US market is a good sign already. The series also lacks Chinese representation, so I guess most of the scenario will be about the new Chinese characters, like KOF14... It could be the occasion to create some really interesting designs. Or something fun, like a Chinese rival to Kyoushirou. I hope they'll chose some refined aesthetics (all SS games should aim to look like Zankurou Musouken), and if they do, that they'll be able to pull it off... Atmosphere is 50% of what makes SS games memorable, so they'd better up their game in 3D, but also in music and sound effects. I don't think the franchise could survive another failure like SS Sen... But then, SS has had many bad games and has survived through it all, so maybe the good games are enough to support the failures. [/QUOTE] Sen takes place a year after Asura Zanmaden (or two years after SS2/Shin). Some events in AsuZan were retconned in Sen. Kazuki, Genjuro and Ukyo are alive as of Sen. Nakoruru is still a spirit in Sen. Mina... she might be dead... Basara is excused thanks to time traveling shenanigans in Zero and Tenka. From what you said, I expect more Chinese Characters in SS7 other than Wan-fu. Probably another Wuxia-styled warrior or a Chinese polearm user. A weaponized theater actor could be good.
