I hope to God, one of these days, DLC dies a horrible death.

Absolutely shameless, especially for an asset flip crossover game. I was going to buy this, but now I won't.

If the main game still has a good lengthy single player like the Blazblue games with a gallery to unlock i'm still buying this game, but won't go into the DLC much unless one of the characters is Nu or Mu.

Nu is already in the base game (and technically Mu is too, being Noel and all).

Oh, in that case the DLC isn't really important unless it comes with new BGM tracks

I was going to get this day one. Now I'll just wait for a complete edition. Get your heads out of your asses, Arc!

No word on a european release? Fuck you then, I guess!
I know there's no region lock on the switch, but why should I care if they don't give a damn either.
