There’s still about a month left until the game releases, which means more time is left for character reveals. In the following tweets, within this thread, Bandai Namco confirmed that there is “still quite a lot to reveal,” and these reveals will include both previous characters from the series and “new ones.” Additionally, the company mentioned that “some characters are not shown to avoid spoiling the whole game,” so its possible that even the final line-up won’t include every character we’ll see in the game.
