5th char can't use placeholder art? This was mentioned in the mega 4th & 5th character thread, but I wanted to call particular attention to it. From the new Jay wilson 1up.com interview. Underline added for emphasis. Okay, so they're using an NPC's graphics as placeholder art for the 4th char. I say that's got to be the basic NPC soldier; we've seen them using swords and bows, so perhaps the 4th char is the hybrid ranged attacker? But why couldn't they use placeholder art for the 5th character? And what clues does this give us to the character types? They only have the one NPC soldier artwork and it's in use for the 4th char. The 5th char has so many graphical effects to his skills that they can't represent it with existing NPC graphics The 5th char has some weird movement types; levitating or teleporting or blurring or something that they couldn't adequately represent with existing NPC graphics. The 5th char is a shape shifter whose skills and movements are too tied to his form to represent with existing NPC graphics. They don't want to make due with placeholder art so they're going to put the artists and animators on that while the rest of the team does other stuff. Other?
