Thanks. I know I could just edit my original post, but then I doubt many (if anyone) would notice. Anyway, I just wanted to clarify something... When I said Ps1's Sir Daniel Fortesque, I meant the character in Medievil I, NOT Medievil II. I don't know exactly why, but I like Sir Dan's skull in the first game wayyyyy more than the second game's. And while Medievil Resurrection still kinda used M II's skull shape, it (in my opinion) looked a lot better than M II's.
Yea I've been wanting this ever since Super Smash Bros. Came out for N64. I think they should inclide these old schol characters into their roster because it takes me back to my psx (psone to some) days. I think the characters should be:
Spyro the Dragon
Tomba (Tomba! and Tomba!2)
Croc (Croc: Legend of the Gobbos and Croc 2)
Ape (Ape Escape)
Agumon (Digimon World)
Abe (Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee)
Jak & Daxter
Ratchet & Clank
Ty the Tasmanian Tiger
Tak (Tak and the Power of Juju
Prince ( We love Katamari)
Shadow the Hedgehog (Since his game was on the ps2 and Sonic was in SSBB)
Here is a very fair and reasonable list of characters that are most likely to appear.
Spyro the Dragon
Gex the Gecko
Ape (Ape Escape)
Sir. Daniel Fortesque
Cloud (Final Fantasy)
Lara Croft (Tomb Raider)
Parapa the Rappa
Sam Fisher (Splinter Cell)
Jak & Dexter
Ratchet & Clank
Devil May Cry
Beyond Good & Evil
Prince of Persia
Sweet Tooth (Twisted Metal)
I definitely agree that Crash and Spyro make perfect sense for this game. PS All Stars' game director refers to this game as a "Celebration of Playstation" and I feel like no two other characters fit with this theme better than Spyro and Crash.
If the devs at SuperBot do get those two in there, I'd prefer if they used used either Crash's original design from the PS1 or his design from Crash Twinsanity (http://images2.fanpop.com/image/photos/9000000/Crash-to-100-For-Ever-crash-bandicoot-9061802-1000-10...) because he still retains the original crash design for the most part.
I really REALLY hope that SuperBot does NOT use the Crash Bandicoot design from "Crash of the Titans" and onward (http://images.wikia.com/crashban/images/0/04/Crash_Render.jpg). That would honestly be the most heartbreaking thing in the world to Playstation fans . We didn't grow up with this tattooed, furry nobody who hasn't had a good game in years. We grew up with Crash Bandicoot's PS1 design.
Same goes for Spyro. If he ends up in the game I hope it's the Insomniac spyro design from the PS1 days (http://images.fanpop.com/images/image_uploads/Spyro--Year-of-the-Dragon-WP-spyro-the-dragon-321436_8...) and NOT the Spyro look from the PS2 days (http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20110119075443/spyro/images/6/6a/Spyro_Eternal_Night.jpg).
I hope SuperBot realizes how much the internet will EXPLODE if they announce that the original Crash and original Spyro will make it into the game. How many times have we heard people begging Sony to get Crash Bandicoot and Spyro back? This would be the next best thing!
It actually makes more sense to use Radical's Crash he is more of a fighter than in the older games. I totally agree about using his Twinsanity model it's the best one tbh.
Firstly, I'm just keeping my fingers crossed and hoping it's not going to take the SSB route and focus on all the "cutesy" chars. Believe me, I like R&C, Jak, and Sly (who I REALLY want to be in this!) as much as the next, but there's a good deal of others to be implemented!
Sly Cooper and Carmelita Fox
Mao/Laharl/Valvatorez (or all three!)
Monster Hunters(Male in Rathalos Plate, Female in Rathian Plate)
The Overlord (remember him? Game of the same name?)
Asbel and Sophie (tales of graces f)
Solid Snake (old and young!)
John Marston (Red Dead series)
Just about anyone from Dark Cloud series
and just to mess with someone...
I've always hoped Sony would make a crossover fighter of some kind, but I wish they didn't almost completely clone a certain Nintendo series. Thought it would be more of a 1 on 1 or 2 on 2 fighting system. Aside from the format though, I am glad they're finally making one of these. I agree with most of ScyntWhitestripe's choices, love RPGs but unfortunately I doubt most of them will make it in.
There a TON of older characters Sony could use, but here are a few characters/series I would like to see in the game:
Ezio (Assassin's Creed + SCV lol)
Lightning (Final Fantasy)
Keats and Ellen (Folklore)
Nariko (Heavenly Sword)
Haseo and Ovan (.hack//GU)
Sora and Riku (Kingdom Hearts)
Yuri and Karin (Shadow Hearts)
Fayt Leingod and Nel Zelpher (Star Ocean)
Crono (Chrono Trigger)
Cloud (Final Fantasy-if anyone gets in, it'll be him)
Dart and Rose (Legend of Dragoon)
X and Zero (Mega Man X)
Lenneth (Valkyrie Profile)
If I listed ALL characters I wanted in this type of game, it would be a few pages long, so I'll stop here. If they only use characters from the PS3 era, they're wasting a lot of potential imo.
- Nathan Drake and Sully
- Snake and Big Boss
- Someone from Final Fantasy like Squall or Cloud or Noctis
- Sora and Rikku
- Samanosuke (Onimusha)
- Cole from inFAMOUS
Since the developers announced 6 characters already (correct me if I'm wrong), I didn't include them.
How dare you spell Riku's name wrong! lol
