Fighting EX Layer confirms two new characters, will need big first month sales to justify more DLC



In the dead of night before April Fools was a thing, Arika debuted new footage of Fighting EX Layer to showcase two new additions to the project -- Sanane and Hayate. As CEO Akira Nishitani explains, this will make for 13 playable characters at launch, but he wants to do more as DLC.

So far he has four ideas that he wants to make it in, a list that includes Area, my favorite EX series character (Pullum, V. Rosso, Sharon, Area). Nishitani notes that if the game doesn't sell and they "don't reach [their] target in the first month after release," then they won't be coming at all. So yes, Arika's CEO did confirm DLC as a possibility, not a given. At the end of the clip he shows off the designs of the four characters, as well as joke art for SNK producer Yasuyuki Oda.

I'm jazzed to see how this one turns out, but I'm a little disheartened to see my main not in day one. Oh well!
