neat details. still more worried about whether the Pokemon voices will be dubbed or not

7th Gen Pokemon Chrome comfirmed

Been a bit worried about the modes/content in this game, and this has made me more nervous. Ferrum League sounds cool, and the standard practice, multiplayer, and online options are appreciated, but the game seems a bit bare-bones even with the trainer customization. I'm a little disappointed 'MyTown' doesn't seem to be anything more than avatar customization. Hoping there's still a decent bit more to be seen before launch!

There have been games with even less than this that have still managed to do extremely well (maybe not financially but amongst players) for example, UMVC3.

I get what you're saying though, I too hope we get a few more modes, like mission mode or something?

Well team soul is behind it, though it sounds like the story mode may have a mission mode as part of it perhaps. This is just some random press release stuff, we're due for a full video blowout in a few weeks

Namco probably banking on Capcom setting president getting away with even more bare-bones content in SF5 and the media and fanboys giving the game a pass.

We probably won't know everything until closer to release.

Honestly, it sounds like more content than it really could have had. I mean, the arcade one lacks some of the features. I think the final game will have more content than this and it will feel fine and have enough.

We'll see.
