The Journey character doesn't need to have physical attacks ya know. The little sheets of cloth could float around in swirls and tornadoes around that character as "attacks" while the Journey character just floats around the stage. The "cloth attacks" will build both AP and scarf length that'll allow more air time if you hold "X". The cloth attacks would vary with different types too like the cloth "jellyfish" which will flow up and the cloth "manta ray" that flies forwards. The supers can be references to Flower and FlOw or even the dragon as previously noted, while Level three could have the entire stage get covered in a blizzard (a la big daddy's level 3) which will make all the other character move slowly with ice covering them as you "take them out" with your "attacks".
The abilities don't need to necessarily be a forced moveset that makes the character feel out of place, instead the moveset could be a love letter that represents the game as a whole. Why can't we capture the beauty of Journey in this way? It's not particularly violent.
I don't think you all realize it doesn't matter if he could fight or not. Him having to fight, kill, and be killed ruins the image of the game where he comes from. That's probably why Team ICO didn't want to be part of it. A stage might work if the mash up doesn't ruin the artistic feel(Ico+SOTC or Journey+flower) like mashing it up with something like Tekken.
i Agree. for several reasons:
No Moves: Journy guy just doesnt have anything. Hell, it doesnt have arms. All i can see it doing is floating and beeping. I cant look at it the same way if superbot fatprincess's Journey cuz it wouldnt be journey, it be. . . . something horrible
Not a fighter: this isnt the same as my first point. in the journey game, journey didnt do a single thing violent. it wasnt offensive, it didnt hate, it did nothing battle related. to make this thing a combatant would ruin everything
Better as a place: Id so much rather see Journey's desert as a level with it watching all-stars curiously, then when the mix arrives, it would explore the whole new world before itself. it would be a thing of pure beauty.
you dont deserve it: ok this is just an LOL but i dont want to be online and watch a 12 year old spam his left squere all day into level 3 super. i dont want to hate him lol
