New PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale Details From The EB Expo

Superbot reveals why DmC Dante and two Coles made the All-Stars roster. (EB Expo, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, PS Vita, PS3, SuperBot Entertainment)

They NEED to reveal Crash and Cloud if they're in the game. Those 2 characters alone will pretty much guarentee 3+ million unit sales if they unveil them pre-release. Alot of rumors and statements from Superbot themselves have pointed to these characters being in the game, mabye as unlockables. Even still, people need to know that they're there, otherwise they're going to continue to assume that the current roster is final, and will be a lot less inclined to buy the game. Be smart with this Sony and Superbot. It's a golden oppurtunity to truly franchise the Playstation brand.

I knew it. Capcom is such a sh*t company these days. They make millions off of the franchises they already have going, but all they want to do is continue marketing their new sh*t so they can make more money. I love the logic of the new Dante somehow being an allstar when his game isn't even out yet. At least Raiden was in a PS2 title. F*ck you Crapcom.

I really wish that when Capcom told SuperBot that it has to be the new Dante, that SuperBot had just said "No thanks" and not included him in the game at all, then chased down another character instead.

The guys behind the Oddworld games for example (which were huge in the PSX days) asked SuperBot for Abe to be put in the game, but heard nothing back. I'd much rather have Abe than the new Dante.

It not that simple.That is not how business works. If they went out of their way to go after Dante it is not as simple as that to just drop them and go chasing after another characters. That means leaving a big gap in the roster and no guarantee that they would get anyone else to agree to fill the space. Capcom was willing to give Dante even if it was on their terms. So why should you say no to a willing participant? Superbot themselves said looking for characters, even first party ones, isn't easy so just dropping Dante for someone else is not as simple as people make it sound.You can't just say leave Dante out and look for Crash and Spyro and next thing you know you can't convince Activision to give you them. Then what? You spend more time, resources and effort chasing after characters to fill the roster? At that rate you will never finish making the game.

I guess because PXZ is aimed at Japanese gamers and DmC Dante is targeted for western gamers.

Well that makes sense. It is their character and you can't force them to give you whatever you want but I would have thought that Capcom would have at least been a little more reasonable and not so adament about it. At least let us have a alternate skin of old Dante or something.But I guess they have an image to keep. Just imagine if they gave in and put classic Dante in PASBR. It would have undermined their whole claim that they are want to use new Dante. First thing people would say is 'So you can use old Dante in PASBR and not in DMC? WTF Capcom?'

I believe this game will sell no more than 200k (worldwide) copies from release until next year. And will mosy likely have a metacrtic score of no more than 75%. This, LBP:Karting and wonderbook are releasing in the worst possible windows (for any relevant sales or market awareness), and will be totally crushed in sales and forgotten about due to the heavy hitter multiplat releases, wiiU and Halo 4.

I believe ur one bubble says a lot about your comment.

I hope Superbot announces Crash soon as I so many playstation fans would be happy.
Regarding New Dante being used because Capcom said so just proves Capcom really don't care about their fans anymore.

I hope Superbot adds that save replay mode/in game screen shot mode because that is something I wish all games had.

Sucker Punch already had 2 characters... 1 cole and sly..
ZeroChaos  +   644d ago
I think that when he said two characters, its actually referring to Cole. Sucker Punch most likely sees Cole as two separate entities and as such should have to separate characters.
