Based on the Gameplay Demo released by IGN a few hours after the reveal, each player will be able to form a team of three, where characters battle it out against another set of 3 assembled by the opponent player.
From the quick interview in the demo video, producer Koji Nakajima said fans do not need to wait long to know the other characters that will also be playable in the game.
