Does it honestly matter if those characters are in it or not? Marvel Vs Capcom 3 had a lot of people wanting Megaman and Venom.
They didn't get in the game, but the overall game was still fun without them. Don't get me wrong, I would love to see Crash and all those guys in the game. But if they aren't in it, then that's fine, we still got Ratchet, Sackboy, etc.
Considering this game is all about the characters, I think the community is entitled to care about who gets in and who doesn't. Yeah the game (from what I've played) is fun, and I only played with the characters in the old beta, but that doesnt make everything else less important.
