I think a stage that mixes Shadow of the Colossus with Journey would be great. We would see the journey protagonist attacking the Colossus, while this one attacks us.
So, which stages would you like, guys?
I once told SB that JAK x UNCHARTED would be the best mash up. 2 of ND star games/characters together would be one of the best stages in this game. Sly is mashed up with Infamous, Ratchet is with Resistance so WTH leave Jak and Uncharted out?
Its pretty simple. Both 3rd games introduced the Desert/Wasteland so combined there deserts. Maruaders from Jak 3 can invade the UC3 desert as stage hazards riding around the desert in their buggies. Even the Dark maker Terraformer could be a background stage hazard or a 2nd hazard could be the bad weather effect that Jak 3 had where after a certain amount of time in the desert a bad sandstorm arises. All stars could do a after the sandstorm dies down the mash up of Maruaders can come out along with whatever else in the UC3 desert.
A stage from MediEvil more specifically the graveyard stage combined with fat princess.
you could see the zombies going around and all of a sudden some of the soldiers from fat princess arrive. The stage hazard could be the giants from fat princess could whack at the players and zombies could run past the stage harming those in their way.
Or it could be the opposite a fat princess stage and their is a battle between the 2 armies and hallway through Zarok in his dragon form would appear and start attacking both armies by charging at them and clawing at them like the boss fight at the end if medievil. All of this could be happening in front of a castle.
The hazards could be that the wizards or archers attack the players near the beginning and later on zarok would either spit the acid at the players or use his force field thing hurting players near him.
Some ideas I posted in gamefaqs the other day:
Rupture Farms (OddWorld+Lemmings)
In the meat processing plant of Rupture Farms. Mostly a flat stage with traps including laser beams, grinders, and pitfalls. All are inactive until a Slig in the background pulls a lever. Eventually, Lemmings come in and start messing with the controls while Sligs start freaking out, etc
Cemetery Hill (MediEvil+MotorStorm)
Dark, gloomy, gravestones and zombies everywhere. Zarok is in the background near the beginning. Occasionally a Zombie will walk onto the battlefield and try to hurt someone. In the background on top of the hill, gargoyles will spit out boulders that sometimes act as a hazard as well. Then, some motorcycles and trucks jump out from the top of the hill and start driving around everywhere while a huge tsunami starts up and causes destruction everywhere.
Black Forest (Fat Princess+Shadow of the Colossus)
The layout is basically this: http://i.imgur.com/IVrXVTX.jpg changed to make it interesting for this game obviously. It would be the largest stage in the game. There is an all out war in the background, and occasionally a stray cannonball or arrow or whatever would hit the stage and anyone in the way. One of the waterfalls will stop flowing, then the 2nd Colossus will emerge from the cave that the waterfall was hiding. The villagers will start attacking the Colossus. Once the Colossus gets onto the playing area, it can step on players and can be jumped on as a platform if someone gets high enough.

Hekseville (Gravity Rush+Katamari Damacy)
Never played Gravity Rush, but it would be at an iconic part of the city, and the King of All Cosmos would appear in the sky along with plenty of rainbows and flying pandas, and the Prince starts rolling everything up, including the players from time to time.

Limbo City (DmC+War of the Monsters)
Maybe in the amusement park area or something, bunch of demons everywhere.
Then Ultra-V and Kineticlops appear and wreak havoc even more.

N. Sanity Island (Crash Bandicoot+Uncharted)
Starts with the first level from Crash 1. Crabs and crates galore. The camera will start to shift to the right, causing everyone to explore the island coastline, seeing familiar sights from Crash 1, including Papu Papu's hut, the boulders, the great gate, and more. There will be train tracks around the great gate area. Train crossing ringing starts happening, and that will be your warning to jump off the tracks to a platform above. The train from Uncharted 2 barrels through the stage, and it forces you to get on top of it, taking you to the other islands while a helicopter will try shooting you. Sully's plane takes out the helicopter after a bit. The track leads up to Cortex Castle, where Cortex's blimp takes off. Cortex blows up the train, leaving you stranded on the blimp for the rest of the match while Sully tries to shoot down Cortex who is distracted by the players. Very busy stage, but it all happens somewhat quickly.

My idea was for a stage to be made called "Museum".
Museum would be a cross between MediEvil 2 & Devil May Cry.
Basically it would take place in the museum where you fight the dinosaur in MediEvil 2.
You fight for a while and then the wall starts to smash, When it smashes open Phantom from Devil May Cry appears.
Through the rest of the stage, Phantom will try to kill you.
