L.A. Beatdown News

99 replies 2868 views Edited Oct 25, 2012
Here's all the news that I learned from the event. I spoke with lots and lots of SuperBot employees including Omar Kendall, Chan Park, Seth Killian, and many more. They're all great guys. Some were also drinking so that made it very easy to get some information of of them. Anyway, here's what I learned.

- Character's have two costumes on disc plus four color schemes per outfit. One is default and the second one is to be unlocked. If you pre-order you get an extra outfit and you get four colors for that one too.

- Only 20 characters, that's it. No unlockable characters. No nonsense, no "launch roster" speak. 100% confirmed, the end.

- Raiden's unlockable outfit is from Metal Gear Rising: Revengance.

- Dante won't feature a classic outfit, at all.

- Omar Kendall told me that they couldn't do much with alternate costumes for Dante because Capcom will be releasing a lot of downloadable costumes for DmC: Devil May Cry and they don't want to spoil any.

- I asked why Crash Bandicoot was not in the game and the response I was given was, "It's Activision."

- If you initiate Big Daddy's Level 3 on the level Columbia you earn a Trophy called, " I Chose the Impossible".

- Nathan Drake and Sly Cooper are rivals.

- Colonel Radec and Sir Daniel Fortesque are rivals.

- Rival cutscenes take place in a blue area that resembles the training area.

- 14 stages. Plus the training stage is also available for all combat so technically there's 15. No, absolutely no ICO level.

- Team ICO is very, very, strict with their characters so no ICO or Wander.

- I was told, "Please don't encourage Paul Gale, he was friends with a guy was in a focus testing group and that's how he knew stuff."

- San Francisco: Resistance X Ratchet & Clank

- Columbia: BioShock X Twisted Metal

- Invasion: KILLZONE X Ape Escape

- Black Rock Stadium: Twisted Metal X Jak and Daxter

Thanks a lot Macho, not disappointed in the least. Don't imagine the PG fans taking this lightly, but meh - time for them to move on.

Thanks for the info Macho, sooo excited for Nate Vs Sly now.

A bit sad about Crash and Wander, etc but I kinda expected it (at least crash anyway, this is Activision).

Any chance someone asked about other characters like Kat or Ubisoft reps though? (I know they're not in now but any idea what their DLC chances are?)

If Crash is not in the game as DLC you can blame Actitivion. I know Omar and the crew wanted Crash in. Blame GREED!!

No classic Dante costume is disgusting
what could be more obvious than that, but no they chose to take off his coat instead "could be Capcom's fault too, greedy Ba$tards"

I'm glad Dante won't get a classic costume right now. I have really little interest in classic Dante and I'm glad they are all focused on his current self.

It's a shame Dante won't get his classic outfit.

Just so everyone knows, I told a few SuperBot employees that Jak's pre-order costume has him with green facial hair, however Jak never, ever had a green goatee in the first Jak and Daxter game.

One of the guys pretty annoyed that the character artist made that mistake.
