Is this an overdue use of assets - or a teaser for next year's DLC? Either way, we have to applaud the arrival of the first non-playable Invasion Boss. This should have been the plan from the get go. Other modes let players face enhanced versions of standard characters. Using NPC skins and existing moves to create the impression of a weekly "invader" is exactly what the mode needed. This gives it the 'event' status it supposes. Mapping simple skins of characters like Havik or Hotaru to existing move sets would also be a considerable improvement over previous "Chaosrealm" and "Orderrealm" offerings. Sindel is an excellent start, as it is.
