I'm so hyped for this. I've known it was coming for a while, but seeing the videos and all the new characters makes me all warm inside. All 12 new characters have leaked now, but I won't spoil that here. Big Grin

So this is a whole new game? Not just a DLC for all the chumps (me included) that bought the last one?

Cyclops is definitely not one of the 12 characters. Sorry Sad I was upset at that myself.

It is a new disc. Honestly at $40 you're saving money because 12 characters and 8 stages alone would be more than $60 as DLC. Plus you can get trade in value from the original. It's a MUCH better idea to release a new game than do DLC.
