As #1 Oddworld Fan, i think its not the right time to put him in, i dont want him to have a random move-set as toro, sir dan or parappa, i think they should put Cloud, Crash & Sora First, i think for now they just have to do an Oddworld level (mash up with some pigs from tomba?) untill they figure out how Abe would play-like.
What do u think guys, should Abe join us now, or are they have to ask Activision/Square/Disney for Crahs/Cloud/Sora first?
The HD remakes of the other Oddworld 'sequels' have just released on the PS3 & Vita, with Abes Oddysee fast approaching - it's somewhat the rebirth of Oddworld into the casual and general audiences minds. What better way to capitalise on that then to add Abe to the roster and thus rep the franchise.
a) Pleases the nostalgia/PS1 wanted fans
b) Helps both devs in terms of marketing
c) Negotiating his inclusion should be easy
There are a couple of very highly requested characters, that if SuperBot can include, should as soon as possible - unfortunatly, the reality of the buisness just isn't as simple, so we should be glad if the devs of beloved characters want their characters in, and support their inclusions.
It's nice to know some devs openly 'want' to be associated with this game. It needs to be backed for it to be successful.
@S-o-h-a-i-l i hope square enix and disney do the same oddworld dev did with cloud and sora, activision will never do that anyway XD
