Daily Reaction: Should PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale Include More Classic Characters?

The roster for the highly anticipated brawler PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale has been of much debate since its announcement earlier this year. As characters that were once thought to be impossible to show up in a brawler (ie…Toro & Fat Princess), to almost forgotten characters like Spike from Ape Escape, and even the newly announced Evil version of Cole McGrath and Raiden, it’s impossible to tell who will show up next. With that Sebastian and Dan from PlayStation LifeStyle, set out to write Santa to beg and plead for some more of our favorites to show up. (PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, PS Vita, PS3)

Daddy, what does new mean?

They could of though thats the thing

Old Dante or Snake/Raiden from Metal Gear Solid 2

Cloud should be in this or maybe Squall instead of Lightning which is looking likely

Crash and Spryo should be included...if they arn't in it Superbot should just come out and say it now because people will get ticked off they've let people get hyped up for nothing.

The PS1 Rayman would be a nice touch along with Croc and Tombi

Lara Croft would also be a nice edition although they'll probably use the reboot Lara Croft not the PS1s Lara.

Sir Daniel Fortesque will probably make it into the game

Hopefully Gabe Logan from Syphon Filter will make an appearence aswell.

Theres so much potential for this game, it's a game thats been in the making in gamers minds since the PS2 days.

They should of announced all the good characters at E3 with an epic E3 trailer, with them all battling it out and then release more characters from this gen down the the ones people know are coming but don't know which ones will make it. I mean when they came onto the stage, showed a demo off it with hardly nothing new just two new characters we saw leaked 2 weeks before I was gutted

So many awesome characters you listed there, yet they waste the slots with 2 coles, big daddy and 2 tekken characters.

Big Daddy, Evil Cole, and the Tekken Characters should have been DLC. I said it before, that they are leaving the good characters as DLC to milk the game as much as possible.

Edit: On the article: What a $hittY list they gave. Almost all characters from this generation, yet the article is titled "Should PSASBR include more CLASSIC characters?". MikeCosgrove suggestions are much better since most of them are truly iconic and classic PS characters.

Yup all the discussion on Onimusha, brave fencer musashi, syphon filter, crash, spyro, etc....nope nothing classic playstation here. My guess is either u didn't bother reading the article, or failed to grasp the word classic.

Their is only 1 Tekken character Heihachi and Tekken of all fighters is associated with Playstation the most because it was exclusive up into this gen so Tekken does deserve to have a character on the roster as it has a long history with Playstation.

Big Daddy you could make a case for because though Bioshock is on the Playstation the franchise is associated more with Xbox just because it came on the Xbox first. He most likely is included because Sony has a marketing deal for Bioshock Infinite like they have for AC3 and Xbox has for RE6 and COD.

Evil Cole to some can be seen as a waste as Cole already is in the game but he looks to play different enough from good Cole that to me it seems alright because at least he is not a clone like most fighters do.
Darth Stewie  +   1260d ago
Dante is not up to Sony if he is the new or classic and besides maybe old Dante is an alternate costume while new Dante is just the default.

As for Raiden being the MGSR version well he doesn't look to different from the MGS4 version(which could also be an alternate costume) and I rather have this version of Raiden than the lame MGS2 Raiden.

Characters like Croc, Rayman, Lara, Cloud, Crash, and Spyro are all not owned by Sony so they have know control over them even if they all played an important role in the history of Playstation. Besides their is still a chance atleast for Crash and Cloud to make it in.

Sir Dan has been confirmed by Superbot who said the leak was 100% legit but they have more characters that was not leaked.
Gabe Logan will probably be saved for the next installment since there are to many characters with guns and if Snake is in the game they would be to similar.

Finally it would be stupid to reveal the entire roster at once because it would ruin the chance of hyping the game and all the buzz it is getting from speculation

i would love to see the maiden in black in this game.
Paranoidplayer24  +   1260d ago
You guys are stupid there are still 7 characters to be announced. So far the leak is all true and Dan is among the leaked characters. Crash's anniversary is coming up soon what better time to announce him. Seriously wait until the full roster is released
GribbleGrunger  +   1260d ago
Do you people think that the launch roster will be the only characters to appear in this game? DLC!
JadedWriter  +   1260d ago
When the hell are people going to stop bitching to Sony about why X third party character isn't in the game? It's not up to Sony it's up to the third party developers. It's one giant legal decision that has to be made and the third party developer has to approve it...pretty much just look at why certain Marvel characters are not in Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and there's your answer. Out of Sony's characters I would love to see Dart and Rose from Legend of the Dragoon and Kat from Gravity Rush.
GribbleGrunger  +   1260d ago
Every single person has their list of characters that they'd like to see in the game. This is why these articles are getting really tiresome. Everyone is so self centred that they honestly believe that their choice should matter more than the next persons...

Or do these people think Sony should literally put every single last character that has ever appeared on a Sony console, into the game?! Because that's the inevitable conclusion you have to make... If gamers try to deny that selfishness

It's like watching kids fight over which toy to play with.

These articles are really irritating. It's the same dumb argument or whine fest, but nothing comes out of them. Hell I would've wanted Snake, but you know what Raiden looks pretty damn cool. It's different, if they just revealed everybody that you expected it wouldn't be something to look forward to. If they announce Lightning for example and do a damn good job executing Lightning's move list then that's good. It means the developers at Superbot are doing a good job putting some thought into the product that they're making.
Foolsjoker  +   1260d ago
Your correct, giving your opinion in an opinion piece is totally self centered. Maybe next time people should give someone else's opinion?
Sevir  +   1260d ago
At This point its safe to assume that Bitching willl happen irregardless of what they get
It just seems like a lot of these gamers feel like they are entitled to every freaking thing these days!
Its getting really irritating to come here expecting to see articles about that moves the industry forward but instead we get crap and opinion pieces that fuel the whiny and pretentious gamers who think the developers owe them the world.

It wont stop and N4G is a haven for this these days!
All youre reading from some of these gamers are the Games they wont get and what they dont like and oh they changed this and ruined that! LOL at this point it accepted that they dont game, they just bitch!
Moby-Royale  +   1260d ago
Almost as repetitive as the bozos that come here just to whine.

Oh wait, YOU aren't whining, just everybody else.

smashcrashbash  +   1260d ago
Okay I would like to point out something here. We have Heihachi, Fat Princess, Radec, Parappa, Raiden, Toro, Cole, Drake,Sackboy,Spike,Sweet Tooth,Sly, Jak, Ratchet,Dante and the way it is looking Sir Dan and Nariko and Big Daddy. Now out of that list several of them belong to Sony. Therefore they would use those first the same way Nintendo mostly used the characters that belonged to them because that is easier and probably cheaper to do then running every where and digging up characters that belong to other people.So the first step obviously would be to use what ever belongs to them first and everything else for later. Why leave out Sackboy, Jak, Ratchet etc. when they are mine? Why should I put them on the back burner and instead spend time wheeling and dealing with every single developer to fulfill the long lists everyone has made? Why do you think Nintendo did run around adding every game character that was on their system? Why not Mega Man? Or Ninja Turtles? Or Ninja Gaiden? Or Maximo? Or Simon Belmont. Or any other character that started on the Nintendo systems?

Added to this Superbot has repeated again and again that they will add in characters along the line if it becomes necessary. And to add to that the roster is not finished and people are complaining why not this person or that person when you don't even know if they are in the line up? You keep saying why no Crash or Cloud. How do you know they aren't already there which makes your constant griping pointless.So how about we wait until the full roster is revealed THEN you can cry and wet your pants about it.And everyone's so called constant complaining to seemingly prove you are more concerned about the game then anyone else is getting annoying. Because you complain more doesn't mean you like the game better. It just that empty vessels make the most noise.
