Btw, since Arcsys had two different announcements several hours apart (First for Blazblue Cross Tag, and then Guilty Gear), it's not impossible that Harada will get back on stage again when EVO is about to end.
If not, someone at EVO needs to explain what that codec thing was.
The only issue I have with that is due to the final game being Smash, you would think the final reveal would be a new Smash character, granted Hero just release and Banjo aint out yet. But that just feels weird pacing wise in terms of reveals, then again I thought it was strange that we only just saw Guilty Gear instead after Blazblue was done.
Then again I have a personal theory that a Bandai Namco rep is one of the DLC characters for Smash since only got 1 rep despite being the co-developer. So it is possible for say that a Tekken rep joins Smash, while a Smash character being Snake joins Tekken in a pretty cool back to back.
