Is "Skin" DLC a Possibility?

#1 Edited by Nonused (221 posts) -

I don't mean like the costumes that every hero's getting already; I mean offering different DC characters as costume sets. Like, could they model a Red Arrow with a different VA and Green Arrow's move set? I would buy that. I would buy that twice.

Any heroes you'd like to see put in via this method?

Well I mean...that Batman costume that appears to come with Lobo is actually Thomas Wayne. I doubt it has a different VA but it's technically a totally different character.

Knowing how die hard some comic book fans are, would there not be outrage over certain characters being treated as if they were the same?

They did Batman Beyond for Bats, so probably.

@theht: That doesn't change the voice or anything though.

Technically the "Arrow" DLC for Green Arrow is what you're asking about, as it changes his voice. So it IS possible, not very likely though. Also, it wouldn't really apply to many characters, except that maybe the rumored Zod DLC could just be a skin/voice change for Superman.

if it means getting more interesting skins out there, not having a new voice is acceptable. i imagine new voicework would be more costly.

New voice over is probably more expensive then NRS or WB would want. That said I would KILL for a Red Hood Nightwing alt.

They already have very specific intro and win animations for each costume. The evil super man has a entirely different intro/win animation than the regular one.

But not with a different voice actor right?
