Looking at a recent video published by PlayStation, we noticed a few interesting things. Could there even be mini-games in addition to game modes?
Yeah, but I'm fairly certain interest is all but gone after hearing that the whole roster it announced. I personally don't care anymore.
The content of the game is what is important not the size of the roster. Many fighting games have even less or equal amount of fighter and still are great games. The size of the roster doesn't change the levels, the unlockables, the gameplay or the style of the game. If the only reason you were buying the game was the roster then that was a pretty weak reason. Besides speak for yourself. I already got most of the people I wanted any way. Not everyone hates the roster. Many people were very happy to see characters like Nariko,Parappa, Sir Dan and Spike.
I agree, there are games in their 3rd and forth iteration that have barely any characters and little content. This game packs on content and tapers off with a decent amount of characters to suit any play style. at this point people should be happy the game is releasing and with polish, better visuals,, improved gameplay balance and the wealth of content and unlockables it has, plus the aformentioned Trophies and Cross Platform support, so Vita players and PS3 players can go head to head on games! it seems people forget the amount of stuff going into this game!
I am 100% sure that is NOT the final roster count. Sony would have had someone important from Superbot, or within Sony itself to reveal something as big of a deal as that... Not some random guy from their blog. Think about how stupid that is. There will be more than 20. The idiot from twitter doesn't know anything.
I really hope so, because aside from Nariko and Drake, I'm not too thrilled with the roster. And @smashcrashbash, "Oh yeah, no one buys a fighting game because of the fighters, that'd be stupid. They do it for the costumes they can unlock for the fighters!". Ridiculous. I understand that the game looks good, plays well, and cross-buy/play is great. But if the game isn't interesting, it really doesn't matter. And characters make it interesting for me. There are too many great games ignored here, and too many characters that aren't really significant at all in the roster.
SuperBot teased other characters. Random Sony PR guy may be either throwing a curve ball or not fully informed. Either way, I'll wait for official SuperBot info. And just because they stop announcing games doesn't mean there won't be more characters in the game. It just means you'll find out on your own.
