Kat from Gravity Rush would be awesome.

YxUxNO2194d ago

I had never thought about Kat before in this, it WOULD be awesome :)

piroh2194d ago

it should be someone more popular with some playstation history for old school gamers

i hope it's Sephiroth

HammadTheBeast2193d ago

Dart from Legend of Dragoon, or any other character from that game would be amazing.

Especially Lloyd or Miranda I think.

HebrewHammer2194d ago

Off topic - Gravity Rush is one of the best games I have played. EVER.

dafegamer2194d ago

I second that truly amazing my current game of the year. Seriously if this Game doesnt get the Award for best Soundtrack, I would go insane

LiViNgLeGaCY2194d ago

I also second that. It's DEFINITELY the best game I've played on Vita.

Hicken2194d ago

Kat would be AWESOME!

AgreeFairy2194d ago

Hardly anyone knows who that is and it isn't a character you can find on a console so there is no point in adding someone like that.

Sounds like there's going to be multiple character reveals. I'm putting my money on Cole McGrath being 1 of them. :P

*Puts money on table*
Me too!

Reverent2194d ago

Whether Cole gets announced through this or not, we all know he'll be there when the game is released;) And he is totally gunna be my main.

Yes let's just reveal more western characters that didn't exist until this current generation...that's a real smart idea...except that it isn't and isn't nearly half of what should represent the playstation brand.

When I think playstation I damn sure don't think Nathan Drake or Kratos.

I think of Squaresoft, PS2 era capcom, Castlevania Symphony of the night, Tekken, Battle Arena Toshinden, Breath of Fire 3 and IV, the fucking list goes on...a much richer list than the one they are attempting to shit out.

Do you see SCEA reaching into the past to pull out forgotten gems or obscure characters like Nintendo did with SSB? I don't...I just see stupid shit that is meant to appeal to the modern "masses."

Bottom line, If they don't represent their roots I'm not buying the fucking game. If they can't get 3rd party characters that actually represent Playstation to a lot of people then this game is not worth my time.

What I'm seeing so bullshit.

And I dont have a problem with western characters...the problem is that they have ONLY revealed western characters and most of them weren't around until THIS CURRENT GEN.


Nitrowolf22194d ago (Edited 2194d ago )

8 characters announced so far, and 4 of the 8 are from past gens (mostly PS2). They are announcing characters from other generations though.

BUT I know exactly what your talking about. What we want to see are characters like Crash, Spyro, Croc, Jax and Dax, Ratchet and Clank, ect. There's a whole arsenal of characters they can announce.

AntsPai2194d ago

This is more like the original Smash Bros, maybe except Ness all those characters were in the current generation. Perhaps in the next PS All Stars they'll have to branch back to all the old characters like Nintendo did

-Alpha2194d ago (Edited 2194d ago )

The characters they have are good so far, Parappa, Radec, and Sly represent some diverse games.

I definitely agree that there is a whole laundry list of better characters from Japan, and past generations that should be in the game before Fat Princess.

Unfortunately, it's not all up to Sony if we see characters like Sephiroth. I just hope they can work hard to give us a classic list of characters instead of using the game to advertise titles (Big Daddy being an obvious one for Bioshock Infinite, though I do like how they represented him) for upcoming releases.

I just want to see Crash, Spyro, Ratchet, Wanderer, Maximillian from Dark Cloud, Sephiroth, etc. It'd be a shame if those guys get put over for the modern, lesser significant names like Cole McGrath, or a Chimera. Unfortunately, I think DLC will be a big thing with this game, so I foresee a lot of milking with the bigger brand names. Fingers crossed that they don't disappoint the initial roster

rdgneoz32194d ago

With Sephiroth and others, we would love to see them but it'll be a pain to get some of them. Its easy for Sony to use characters from IPs they own rather than going to 20 different 3rd party devs/publishers and working deals to use their characters.
They will get some (they've already got Big Daddy), but the majority of the characters are not gonna be ones they don't own the rights to.

TronEOL2194d ago (Edited 2194d ago )

What are you talking about? Is PaRappa the Rapper a modern western character?

As for your more than ridiculous comment, Kratos and Sly Cooper both come from the "PS2-era", while Sweet Tooth and PaRappa come from Sony's "PS1-era". So basically, so far there are two from PS1, two from PS2 and 4 from PS3.

Nathan Drake being Sony's current flagship character, they'd have to be mentally handicapped not to include him.

As for some of the characters you mentioned, a lot of those characters aren't owned by Sony, nor are they games that pushed them into the limelight. In fact, a few of them were barely noticed as "charming gems".

Characters they should bring back (and are more deserving of the attention) are characters like Cloud Strife (Playstation Legend), Dart, Alucard, Solid Snake (Playstation Legend), Crash Bandicoot, Spyro, Gabe Logan, Tomba, Maximo, Dante, Wander from SotC, Jak and Daxter, Ratchet and Clank, with other more modern characters like Sackboy/girl (Sony's Kirby/Mario all-in-one), Nariko, Nathan Hale, Soldier from Warhawk or Emmett Graves from Starhawk, Cole MacGrath, Kat from Gravity Rush, and the 'robed figure' from Journey just to name a few.

Add those to the 8 characters already announced and you've got yourself a fantastic (and diverse) group of characters. Not to mention we'll probably see more surprises like Big Daddy and Fat Princess. I never would have expected those two. Even PaRappa was a surprise.

Characters that need to be in there:
Crash Bandicoot.
Jak and Dexter.

Those are the main ones I hope for anywho.


mafiahajeri2194d ago

Tiny tiger from crash would be great.

mafiahajeri2194d ago

The joker as a guest character please or Batman would be badass too.

kostchtchie_2194d ago

theodopolopolus2194d ago (Edited 2194d ago )
