the PS1 era was by far the best one for RPG fans and I keep hoping that they announce characters from it.
Final fantasy 7-8-9 were all awesome, and I can't hope enough that they go for someone like Cloud or Squall (or Vivi ^^) instead of more recent Lightning. (Hated FF13)
also, Legend of the Dragoons was made by Sony and it was freakin awesome, can they really pass on Dart?
Ryu from breath of fire franchise would be nice too (dragon transformation moves/supers)
Chrono Trigger/Cross, Wild Arms and many more have awesome characters to offer a game like All-Star.
Anyway, any thoughts from fellow old-school RPG fans?
I completely agree with you about the inclusion of Dart. His character would be perfect for this game because as other users have already said, his attacks in All-Stars can be modeled after his additions, and his supers can be attacks from his red and divine dragon forms. Hopefully both he and the other older characters from the PS1 era won't be forgotten.
Sony should just go ahead and try and make an RPG that crosses over most of the RPG franchises that have graced the PS. Either something like KH (Action RPG), something like the usual crossover SRPGs we see from Japan or just the usual turn-based setup and you can essentially build your dream RPG roster (4 characters in a party, maybe even let the player create their own). Have all the leads from FF team up or have all your favorite RPG magic users/summoners in one team.
Eh. I'd love to see FFIX represented as well as LoD but I'd be surprised to see either get the nod.
You know, an rpg mashup would be pretty cool to see, but I doubt it would ever happen, at least not any time soon with PS All-Stars coming out. Having all the great characters that will be/are in here is good enough for me though!
I've always dreamed of a fighting/mashing game with all my favorite (and more) RPG characters. How cool would it be to battle Sephiroth and Seifer with Cloud and Squall doing a omnislash/lionheart combo (Lion Slash?)
anyway... But an actual RPG that would merge all the PS RPG's main into one game? that would be freakin awesome! (highly unlikely but still).
Anyway, back to main topic, I would be satisfied with Cloud and Dart. any other RPG character would just add to my joy ^^
I'd hope we'd get anywhere between 3-4 in the overall roster. Because in my opinion ps1/ps2 was known for it's rpgs/jrpgs. Then with ps3 it was kind of dry for a couple of years. I've grabbed myself a few titles and it's coming alive now but still, it felt really, really different.
I like the roster so far but I'd really love to see someone from FF (not lighting for the love of god), Xenosaga, Dark Cloud, a Tales game (that's on the ps2 or ps3 naturally), Star Ocean. Those just being games I know of and have played. I'm also aware of the classics I missed out on. I wasn't a ps1 child, I was on the n64 back then lol
It would just be nice that's all.
