So last people are updated.

other people I didn't notice because

Devil Zukin

YES.

but why her I mean she floats my boat I just thought I was one of the last few people who loved her
and I mean... Akira has a gun. There are bunches of other cool peeps that Iono, it's just odd having the amazing 4th Mix Devil Zukin in there, it was the last good thing I expected.

... so who's up for a DDR character tournament *destroyed*

EDIT: I was happy until I read her description/bio and I kind of want to flip a table now. Just... why? Who the crap am I voting for now...? Rinon's story was about as interesting as Devil Zukin's two paragraphs of cool, and I'm rather ticked that Konami's not only covering it up but screwing with it. :[

I'm trying to think... is that even possible? The boss of X2 is Dark Rinon, period, who is like three feet shorter than Devil Zukin. There's like no way to even make the connection... what is Konami on...? Are they onto something or are they just making me pull me hair out...

.....Noticed something.

All the DDR characters in this list first appeared in Dance Dance Revolution 3RDMIX.

....DDR III? ;P

Also,

Quote: Devil Zukin's bio according to Konami of America
Introduced in 3rd mix, Devil-Zukin is better known as the boss to be defeated In the Replicant-D Action songs of DDR X2.

It is rather odd that they're focusing on 3rdMIX stuff. Part of me wants to believe it'd have something to do with X4 vs. 3rdMIX, but, yeah....no. Almost assured that they'll be announcing a new CS title though, no other reason for them to give DDR three slots in the bracket.

Surely, Dark impostor Rinon Zukin is cooler than... that head thing. At least whoever she is, she might get one round.

With this mindset, you think Pop N' music might get some title out on some platform (Vita could be a possible platform) as well? Like a sequel?

If so, WHY HAVE THEY NOT BROUGHT BACK IIDX? >Sad

I wouldn't count on it. At that point they were probably just looking for fillers, like Billy from Sunset Riders (who?). That is, unless they're planning on reviving every one of their series', then I'm fine with that. Smile

I do like that Rage and Emi's images show their X3 costumes. Hint hint nudge nudge

At last year's E3, on the very last few seconds of the Konamo 2011 E3 pre-show, they showed the "C" flaming logo that's infamous as being the huge "C" in Contra, with a tagline saying "They are coming/back; 2012"

I have a feeling this list could be a little teaser as to what Konami is going to be showing in their pre-E3 show this year, seeing that we have Frogger, Silent Hill, PES, MGS/Rising, DDR, Castlevania, and other games that are more than likely going to be talked about unless Konami has brand new games that they are bringing out....which look what that got them *coughNeverDeadcough*

So apparently now you create your own bracket. I'm using FF and I can't select anything, is it just me?

Alright ladies and gents, it seems that "voting" actually doesn't start until May 23.

HOWEVER, the site did get changed up for good reason. The reasoning behind ALL of this "bracket" and the whole "Konami Character Battle" is to determine this years "Konami Ultimate Fan", similar to last year's contest except this time, you have to submit a bracket that closely or perfectly depicts the outcome of the ENTIRE match. Whoever gets closest or gets it perfect on time is crowned this year's Konami Ultimate Fan. The prize? None yet, but I would think it could mean a free all-expense paid trip to E3 or something a little minor.

Here are the official rules:

Quote: Konami E3 Battle Info
WELCOME TO THE KONAMI E3 CHARACTER BATTLE BRACKETS

Predict the outcome of the tournament by selecting the winner for each match. Points are awarded for picking the correct winner for each round. The winner is decided by fan voting beginning May 23rd. Each subsequent round is worth more points. The user with the most points at the end of the tournament will be crowned the Ultimate Konami Fan!

> Login with Facebook to participate. (Meaning you need a Facebook account if you want to participate at least in the bracket submissions, not sure if you need one for official voting)
> Submit your bracket before the Bracket Submission Deadline.
> Come back beginning May 23rd to vote for your favorite characters and see the leaderboards.

HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR BRACKET

> Make your prediction by clicking on the character cell.
> Double clicking the cell will advance the character to the semi-finals.
> Be sure to make your semi-finals and finals predictions.
> Click SUBMIT to save your bracket.

You can come back anytime before the Bracket Submission Deadline to update or make changes.

Bracket Submission Deadline: May 22nd 9PM PST

This could mean whoever submits a perfect bracket FIRST before someone else does is the winner. Good luck to all who join Smile

You need to log back into the site again after you "accepted" the app. Then it will allow you to put in your bracket.

If Devil Zukin was the one to be defeated in RDA, then wouldn't they feature her in DDR II? Or maybe that's what DDR III will be about(vs. 3rd Mix)
Still happy that they featured at least one of the Zukin characters though. I thought they'd be forgotten. I know who I'll be voting for as well. Big Grin
Thanks so much for the banner Lord Toon! And for the icon Dan!

Like... now. It sounds like these voting polls last only a day before they change...?

so who filled their bracket with bemani characters regardless of how hopeless it is
I DID. <3

I had to go with Bomberman over Mimi and Nyami only because my boyfriend is a Bomberman nerd. But eh, I don't really know squat about Konami so I was effed on the majority of the bracket anyway.

I unfortunately didn't. The only DDR character/BEMANI character that moved up at least one round IMO was Devil Zukin and Emi because look who they are both paired up with. (Devil-Zukin) Some randomly small character probably nobody has heard of unless they played that game, which if I read the bio correctly only appears in a minor role. (Emi) this was a tough one, but if the BEMANI community can overcome the Frogger community, then this is a sure fire win for Emi but i have my doubts though, Frogger IS a pretty BIG name in Konami, Emi is one of many characters in the BEMANIverse, not exactly what you would call "iconic" in a sense that Frogger's been around for more than two decades now, but I have faith in the DDR community (well not ALL of my faith but at least some of it is being put to good use) that they will bump her to the next round.

Rage is not going to win I am going to let you know this right now, against the two Contra guys? NO. WAY. This is probably now going to turn into a betting situation, who on ZIv is going to come out the winner (of the site) with the highest points? Remember, if you correctly chose the character that moves to the second round you earn points, the person with the highest points at the end of this competition wins....something from Konami. Same goes for Mimi and Nyami, no way in hell they are going to beat Sniper Wolf.

Let the 2012 ZIv E3 Konami Character Battle BEGIN Devil

EDIT: Apparently, if you log into the Konami E3 2012 website on June 1st, you will get a "beta key" for what is being called a Konami Loyalty Program. What this could mean is unknown at the moment, but we will find out come June 1st. (My guess is something along the lines of registering new Konami titles/owning old titles and registering them and you get points or some crap like that Tongue)

I know Emi fanboys are in crazy numbers, but could she really take down Frogger? That game is like classic.
Oh poor Rage... he has like the hardest path. At least the Facebookers are showing their support.
But gambling on their immediate loss would put a dent in my fangirl pride. If I'm going to lose, I'm losing with the DDR characters. xP

For everything else, I gambled on Metal Gear and Silent Hill characters... just... because. I'm a hypocrite who didn't read most of the bios or research the people I didn't know. Maybe tomorrow... just forgot voting started today. xP

EDIT: Hey, how come when I click on "My Bracket" it's totally empty? Did it just not save...? That's kind of a downer, unless it's just doing that for everyone.
