So it’s been mentioned on Discord that the pre-match intros and post-match training animations (currently just walking in and push-ups for everyone) are intended to be cosmetic microtransactions they can sell after launch to help, you know, fund further development, and so it occurred to me that it might be a cool idea to have a thread to collect ideas for animations they could do. Here are a couple intro animation ideas to get us started!
LUM: Maybe a parody/reference to Gambit’s MvC/MSFvSF intro where he throws cards in from offscreen, except that they’re just sort of like they were thrown by a normal person, so they flutter awkwardly down, before Lum jumps in onscreen? Maybe he also just lands face-down, spread-eagled when he does so
DEGREY: DeGrey with back to the camera, back-to-back with Ghost. Ghost points at opponent, JoJo-style, and then the two do a sort of 520° spin (a turn and a half) to separate and go into regular stance
JAINA: Obviously she’s gonna have to spin that bow around at SOME point
