puzzle fighter II is a great game and hd makes it even better(although some would disagree) and its a shame capcom isn't really motivated to make a sequel, a full blown new title for the consoles and pc. i already talked about new characters and making specific damage calculations for different color gems for every character on the other threads but id like to present some other ideas that could work for a sequel. anyone with ideas of their own feel free to write . one idea was to add a second partner for after you pick your character like on marvel vs capcom 2, this could work in a few different ways: 1.each of "your" characters have their own field, and when you press a button you switch your character for the second one and that also switches you to their field. for example imagine almost getting your donovan buried by the other guy's ken, then just when his about to finish you off you switch to your akuma and get a new field to stack his attack with. the only way to lose is if you he buries both your donovan and your akuma, you can switch at any time but if you do it while you have a gem that's still falling then it will keep on falling in your other character's field and until it lands you won't get the next one, damage done on the field your not using at the moment could have different results depending on character. for example:if i switch my akuma to my donovan and akuma breaks some gems then the damage would be delivered to donovan and not the opponent, do the same thing with chun li and she will send only 50% of her attack to your opponent, and dan will send the same amount to both you and your opponent(gives you some interesting ways to build) another way to go here is to do give the next gem after a switch to the other character, allowing both to have a chance of having a falling gem at the same time, and if both break a certain amount of gems at the same time(before the other player drops his gem and receives the damage) they would both appear and do a super combined attack on the opponent, kinds like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nIAyaaG5_zI (the part when their faces are glued together) and with gems, the first 3 columns will be filled with your current character's pattern and the 4,5,6 with the other one. like this(donovan and akuma): playing like this adds a ton of new strategies and possibilities to any match, the super combo and other field damage create a chance for unique combination of different groups.
