And I guess it's fair to say that 3 years ago no one would have had a clue who Kat was. She could have come on later in development though, which I'm sure was the case with some of the 3rd party choices.
Agreed, everytime they've said "Launching" with 20 characters, they never say only 20 characters on disc. That could very well mean unlockable characters.
And I remember an interview I believe of Omar about him saying there are more characters than most fans will be expecting. I think a lot of people are expecting 20ish and all we have right now is 20.
It's also baffling to know that most wanted characters won't be in the game which is the reason so many fans are kinda upset. I mean they've got to be saving the best for last right? This game just wouldn't feel right without Snake, or Cloud (Square Enix rep) Crash or Spyro. I can understand the 2 latter characters but no Square Enix character is just blasphemy, Sony and Square go way back, how can they not have a single rep?
All in due time I guess, if they don't show anything at all during NYCC is when I will finally start losing hope for new characters.
people were thinking there were 24-26 characters >.> so 28-30 would be what he meant i think xD but thats a lot it would be VERY surprising.
Seems like one of SB's flaws with the production of this game was the failure to gather fan feedback. Sure, Crash may not have been possible regardless, but we likely wouldn't have 2 Coles or Fat Princess in this game had they based their picks off of fan polls.
Gathering fan feedback earlier on would have also eliminated all of the "We didn't know people like that character so much" talk that they were giving, because they would have been well aware how much people wanted Kat.
fat princess they threw in because it represents PSP and PSN at the same time, and 2 coles because sucker punch wanted both in or else we wouldnt have one cole.
