That makes Alex even more likely to appear, as these two were on the leaked list. Granted, I'd also have to suffer at the sight of Urien and his thong again, but at least SF3 is finally getting repped by its main man for the initial launch. Ibuki and Dudley were pretty important to 2nd Impact's story as well, so here's hoping they're thrown back in the mix sometime after.
From the looks of this trailer, they're really changing up the returning cast in ways we'd never expect. I was already impressed with the changes they made to Birdie, but R.Mika with an assist for her V-Trigger? Pure genius. When it comes to diversifying the cast, SF5's bordering on Killer Instinct's level of creativity. This is something that's been sorely lacking in the franchise since New Generation.
That said, we're definitely not gonna hear any more talk about Alex being "too similar" to other grapplers to make it in. Fuck anyone who ever came up with that lame excuse.
Until then, we'll see what else they have in store at PAX this weekend.
