First Round of Characters

The Cutting Room Floor

Hello everyone!
Today we're going to show off some characters that we designed, but unfortunately were not selected for the final game.
Considering the number of characters we had to work with, we decided to go with 16 characters that were easier to deal with.
While these characters unfortunately didn't make the cut, maybe they'll make an appearance somewhere!?

Fighting Literary Master

He's an old man that constantly grumbles to himself. The pen is not mightier than the sword in this game, however. Next!

Fighting President

Seems like Akiman also came up with an idea for a fighting politician.

Clumsy Cutie

Uses tools when fighting. This idea came about when we were coming up for designs for Laura. Next!

Miss Babo
bostuchar04.jpg This also came around when we were coming up for designs for Laura.
She understood the hardships that Laura had when she was born.
Even though we already had a name for her, she got cut. Next!

Soccer Fighter
bostuchar03.jpg The Brazilian male representative. Way too similar to Roberto from Rival Schools, so he got the cut.
BTW, Roberto was one of my favorite characters!

Gen's Disciple

He's a young, ambitious fighter that learned Gen's Assassin's Fist and continued its legacy.
Gen had fallen ill due to disease, and he sought to defeat Akuma, one of Gen's rivals.
He didn't make the cut, so don't worry, Gen is alive and well!

The Teacher
bostuchar06.jpg An idea that we had when brainstorming ideas for F.A.N.G.
At the time we wanted a character that used dark weapons and poison hands.
He was a popular choice but wasn't evil enough, so he got nixed. Next!

Prototype Shadaloo Soldier
bostuchar07.jpg A design that takes inspiration from the Aliens vs. Predator franchise.
If you look at it like that, this Shadaloo soldier is pretty idyllic.

But yeah, he didn't make the cut.
Anyway, we love to come up with ideas for new characters so please look forward to more ideas that we plan to show off...that didn't make the cut.
