2 was a little slow, but players discovered so much tech and combo potential through exploiting glitches and general mastery of the game that it's still the most deep canonical SOR.
It's also the fan favorite, so using it as at least a technical baseline is good to see, though I'd be down with implementing most of 3's changes in measured amounts so it at least looks more impressive than 2 did.
I keep feeling frustrated that the belt scroll beat'em'up scene kinda stagnated so long without evolving too much and died just as a few really good ones that expanded on the formula hit the scene, specifically Battle Circuit, Sengoku 3 and Alien vs. Predator (Capcom). I'm sure this game will be a proper evolution of SOR that will take the best parts of all the previous ones while undergoing the increased depth the Fighting Game genre benefited from.

So, just wanted to ask, which characters would you guys like to see return in this game the most? Me, I want Roo/Victy.
Adam and/or Skate, as they were my mains, and Max because his obscene throw damage was too good.
Honestly I got really spoiled by the Streets of Rage remake so anything that doesn't have at least the core 6 (Adam, Blaze, Max, Skate, Adam, Dr Zan) will be a little disappointing to me.
Mostly hope Max gets in, or another powerhouse like him.
I'd like Adam, Skate, and Max on the Heroes side.
Adam could be a more subdued Mighty Glacier with a focus on punching and kicking fast, despite walking slowly. Max would be a pure grappler who did significant damage with even one punch. I'd like Zan too, but perhaps he'd be best Saved for the Sequel? Admittedly I don't know enough about the game to say?
On the villains side, Mr. X and Shiva.
I just want all the playable characters to come back. I like playing as Roo & Ash, it was a very diverse group
