20 playable characters in the first game is not enough? LOL

Unless indicated, I refer to the first game in the series

Street Fighter II: 8
Super Street Fighter II: 12
Blazblue: 16 (I hear)
Super Smash Bros: 12 (thanks for correcting me)
Mortal Kombat: 8

And you have to take into account they made each character from scratch on a limited budget.

Point is it'S a first game by a new studio.

And those games had a limited roster but were still awesome.

Skullgirls and Persona 4 Arena are newish and don't have anywhere near 20 characters.

What's more important is that the 20 characters in this game are really distinct from each other. It's not like Marvel 3 where you've got like 50 characters except only a few have distinct playstyles and the others are all incredibly minor variations of basic rushdown.

Yeah, and only a few characters in MvC2 are actually tourney-quality. Most of them Marvel, something Capcom would not do on purpose.
