In PlayStation All-Stars there are rivals which we all know. Who the rivals are we have yet to find out, the only rivals we know thus far are Heihachi and Toro. Im guessing the story is like Street Fighter and you play your characters story and you fight your rival at the end. There is a 2v2 mode and i was thinking do you think they will have official partners? I think it would be a good idea. I dont know how it would all work out.
If there are partners in the game who do you think would partner up?
Partners would be interesting. Unique opening/winning/losing interactions and maybe team supers when both activate them at the same time (3 team supers, 1 for each level; that may be pushing it though).
i know, its a random thought. The reason rivals work is because of the story. Partners would just be out of the blue because i dont think they will be part of the story but i would love partner interactions. We still dont know a bunch about this game so im staying optimistic about it. I really hope there are partners.
I think some rivalries that have been suggested (Ratchet & Clank vs Jak and Daxter come to mind) would work just as well being partnerships from a story perspective. However, I have a feeling though that IF teams do happen, they will be on more of a complementary basis. For example, Jak and Ratchet teaming together might sound good because of their similarities, but I feel like their gameplay might be TOO similar. Teaming Jak with Drake, on the other hand, would be great because they're both Naughty Dog-based, they're a little more different, and would obviously make for some good humor.
An example of a good TEAM would be Good Cole and Raiden, seeing as they're both 'lightning based', good guys, and they complement each other well. Raiden is an up-close melee fighter, while Cole would support him with ranged attacks.
