Because the last version of this thread for this game is half a year old and the other one I made only mentions 2 (3?) people, might as well create one of these for current and future reveals/leaks for anyone who cares.
A few days ago some new characters were revealed that someone posted about in the wiki. Now we have something of confirmation.
- Xiba, the palette-swapped Kilik who looks a little more like Son Goku than his predecessor (the monkey king from Journey to the West. Also see: the OG Dragonball series, Enslaved, and Saiyuki). With his staff and that Johnny Yong Bosch voice, he is listed as an "Honest Young Man" who travels with Maxi, Leixia and Natsu. Will probably be the target of much rage.
- Cervantes, the "Great Pirate Resurrected," who probably found the fountain of youth or some shit like that. As a result, is more human-colored than zombie this time around.
- Aeon, the "Creature of Sin" who is Lizardman except he can breathe fire and fly now (at least during his super move).
- Yoshimitsu II, "He who lives by the code," apparently replacing the first Yoshimitsu who got stuck as a cyborg with serious dreads in Namco Bandai's other fighting franchise.
So I guess that means the only characters from the last game who haven't been confirmed yet as of now (either returning or through palette-swapped stand-ins) are Zasalamel, Talim, Setsuka and Seung Mina, right? Oh yeah, I guess Amy and Yun-seong too. Why not.
