There isn't an option for my dream, so I'll just describe it here.
Basically, every so often there would be "packs". These packs are more than just characters, though: They would be like entire DLC packs, adding more characters, trials, stages, items, ect. all in one go. Also, giving each new character a story mode. No buying separately, the entire pack would be like a DLC pack for a regular game but just giving more unlockables.
For Skullgirls style, if the roster is tripled with each DLC, I'm pretty sure they'd make you pay another 30 - 50 to have all characters. We get about 24 on disc, so we'd be paying anywhere between $1 - $5 for 48 characters each. Although it sounds awesome and fun, large rosters could also break the game. Its also just unrealistic in general.
I went with Harada style. 6 DLC characters is what I was hoping for and I would of bought each, so to get them for free would be great. I don't care about extra modes, I like simple 1v1.
