What if they added assist characters?

I think it would a really good idea if they took the assist mechanic from Marvel vs Capcom 1. In that game you would pick a character that was dedicated to assists only. There was also a finite number of times you could use them in a match. I think Injustice should adopt this mechanic but change it a little. Maybe make it cost meter for a guy to come out, or make it have a refresh rate. Maybe some characters cost less meter or refresh faster.

I think this would add more depth and fun to the game, but it could also include more minor and obscure characters without taking anybody else's place on the roster. I was think characters like Daxtar the red lantern cat or Azrael. Characters that are either obscure or would just be weird playing as them in the actual game. I would also like to see characters varying from small to large.

My personal picks would be Daxtar, Azrael, Mera, Killer Croc.

I am liking this idea. But NRS has to make sure that it doesn't make any particular combination broken or overpowered.

It would be cool if each character made use of their sidekicks. Though Harley Quin is more or less Joker's sidekick, maybe it could be the other way around with her, she being able to call in Joker for assist. NRS already have these features with the Tag Assist in MK, they should just make it more elaborate. ^^

Nope. The game is already seems to be really really dynamic and have a lot going on. You don't want it to be too overwhelming/gimmicky.

I have to agree with Oracle on this one, it wouldn't be right without the Joker in this game; also too much already going on; now a tag-team fight option could be added somehow but I doubt it will happen.

After reading up on some more info on the game I'm starting to think this added mechanic would be too overwhelming. At this point in the game you have to factor in stage interaction, enhanced moves, Super Combos, the clash system (which might be a fucked up beast just by itself), and every character has a unique bar at the bottom that gives them some sort of bonus. I think if they added assist characters it just might make things more overly complex.

But the reason I would want it is that it looks like there won't be a tag option, and this would be an adequate fix for me. Also there is no way to put in everybody's favorite obscure character, and I think this would be a fair fix. I want Killer Croc, and Daxtar in this game, but I don't really want them on the roster. There are more iconic fan favorites to choose from.

LOL, my brains already about overloaded with the whole concept of this game, it's a lot to take in all of a sudden, yet totally EPIC!!! Heck, I'm still trying to finish Arkham City all the way, dang there's just too many good games coming out these days: MK9, MvsC3, SFxTK, SF4, etc. In fact it would be kewl after this game to make an Arkham City/Asylum-style game for the JLA.
