while i would love for sephiroth to be in the game he would probably be an unplayable character, his reach would be ridiculous and he would be mad overpowered. honestly i think he will be the final boss at the end of arcade or story

I think Kratos' reach is even greater. Then you have Radec, a guy who can chain combos from across the screen.

 

If Capcom could make Dhalsim balanced, SuperBot should have no trouble with Seph.

Dude, they're going to make the characters as balanced as possible.

No, just no. Dissidia had an even shorter range of fighting arenas, but Sephiroth STILL managed to be balanced. It's quite simple really, just give him a disadvantage like his attacks are slow or something or each of his individual attacks have long range but are each weaker than normal ones. Seriously, I find the whole (His sword is too long) argument absolutely ridiculous.

 

And a boss at the end of the story? He's a third-party character, not to mention he comes from an individual IP. It won't happen as it will most likely provide biased content towards Final Fantasy. It should be an original final boss or something part of PlayStation's history like Polygon Man or even Kevin Butler. Not to mention that you have to wonder how would he even get the power to make everyone meet and what would be his goal for these characters. Seriously, it isn't going to happen.

i realize that, but shortening sephiroths sword or making him weak in any way literally takes away from how great he really is

No, it's called character balance. If we were focusing on how powerful everyone already is, Kratos would have already decapitated over half of the cast.

true, dont get me wrong i love FF and sephiroth in general but he probably wont be in, just looking at squarenix history of characters in other games it just doesnt happen. sephiroth has only been in squarenix titles, same reason sora probably wont be in this (but disney has a tight lock on the rights to him) and i would rather him a final boss then as a playable character a hard almost impossible to beat final boss after beating arcade on extreme

I just felt like doing this since I was thinking about Sephiroth and Cloud in All-Stars

Cloud

 

Level 1: Meteorain (Jumps into air and swings sword, shooting meteors out of the Buster Sword diagonally to the ground. 1 - 3 kills)

 

Level 2: Finishing Touch (Shoots a tornado that travels across the screen in one direction. 1 - 3 kills)

 

Level 3: Omnislash (Cinimatic. 3 kills)

You do realize that this practically goes for a bunch of other franchises too, correct? They still have a chance if SuperBot directly approaches Square Enix, which they probably will considering the series popularity. Just because the franchise doesn't have history of being in cross-overs doesn't mean it won't happen. For all we know, it could just be because the company was never asked or didn't ever have the opportunity to ask for an inclusion.

Personally, I think a Square Enix character will make it considering their PlayStation history. What worries me is which character they'll pick.
