Obvious jrpg characters asside,
Square's Eidos division is publishing that new Lara Croft game.

Lara played a big role in the success of the PS1. Heck, throw in a level mash up from the new game with some other world in PS.

..."Heavy Rain"?

I think a Lara Croft and Nathan Drake stage mash-up and rivalry would be more than perfect. That or they have a "Co-op Rivalry" where they fight two others in a story 2vs2 fight.

I know Nathan Drake already has a rival, but this one ACTUALLY makes sense. I don't think I've ever heard a single soul talk about who would win a fight between Nathan Drake and Sly. It's always been Nathan Drake and Lara Croft.

Same goes with the wonky Kratos rivalry and Dante rivalry. It should have been Kratos vs Dante since that was one that was brought up all throughout the PS2 era. I haven't heard anyone mention Dante vs Nariko, or Kratos vs Sweet Tooth.

Unfortunately square/eidos said no to Lara in the game:(
Kennytaur  +   761d ago
@TronEOL

The rivalries seem to be in some cases based on the developers. Kratos and Sweet Tooth both come from David Jaffe, Nariko and New Dante are same dev. It's odd that it's not Drake vs Jak, and Sly vs Cole.

@Kennytaur
IMO, Jak and Drake would be partners, along with Sly and Cole. A cross rivalry between the two as teams would be bad ass.

A heavy rain stage would be perfect, because it probably won't get a character in the game, and I'd rather have Lara Croft than any JRPG character like Cloud. (Never got into FF myself.)

Here's what will happen:

They'll announce the characters.

Then there will be a delay.

Then, Microsoft will announce some of the characters on their own fighting game.

Then, the other ones will be delayed some more.

Lightning will be on the PS3.

Then the rest will be out on the PS4 the end.

Joking... :D

You know it'll also be another chance for them to throw Lightning into her 18th game.
Zodiac  +   761d ago
Kratos, ratchet, Nathan, and almost the entire cast have had more games than lightning.

Too soon for these types of comments.
Hicken  +   761d ago
"Lightning into her 18th game."

Right, cuz this Cloud guy everybody wants has only been in one game. Oh, wait...

And he's also got so much more personality than Lightning. Oh, wait...

Really, guys. Isn't it about time to give the XIII/Lightning hatred a rest?

I'd rather see Squall, or my personal favorite, Rikku. But it's most likely to be Noctis, Lightning, or Cloud. Couldn't Agent 47 also be an option?

Everyone forgets about Noctis Lucis Caelum (FFVS13) Hopefully either Noctis,Cloud, Sora or Lara
Coltrane_C  +   761d ago
If Tidus or Wakka is in I will jump of a bridge in excitement
Om3ga370  +   761d ago
Oh man....if Sora or Cloud.....maybe even Auron or Gilgamesh, were in the game...I would shit my pants. This game is already of epic proportions, so this collaboration could only make it AMAZING. :D
Majin-vegeta  +   761d ago
As long as it's not that annoying a$$ Lightning i'm fine.

If anyone wants their but handed to them by me PM and i'll send you my PSN ID :D.
miyamoto  +   761d ago
If ever Lightning comes in for PSASBR make sure you are the first to give her Kratos' This is Sparta Kick on her but, thank you.

If its Lara give her a warm Sackboy hug on the tits.

Thank you, Vegeta-san.
RmanX1000  +   761d ago
Cloud or Lightning please... Cloud would be a better fit though :3
Jinkies  +   761d ago
Lightning...are you serious

Cloud, Squall, Zidine, Tidus etc should all be put first. Lightning is the last FF character we would want....its called All Stars for a reason
RmanX1000  +   761d ago
She punched Snow. That is all i need to like her.
Godmars290  +   761d ago
"She punched Snow. That is all i need to like her. "
And still I and many others would rather see Snow than her in the game.
Pozzle  +   761d ago
Snow had his annoying moments, but overall I fond him more likeable than Lightning. I might be alone in thinking this, but I found Lightning (and her lack of personality) to be quite dull.

Senor_Whopper  +   761d ago
who snow?
Jinkies  +   761d ago
This talk should of been done ages ago through before the game even started development, especialy when a character like Cloud/Squall are true PS all stars. Its common sense....lets do talks with developers for characters which will be hard to aquire through negotiations

Knowing Squarenix this gen it will probably be Lightning or nothing cause they seem so fixated on her character & that Lightning Returns is in development.

I hope Squarenix will finally wake up & give the PS fans the dedication that we deserve for supporting the company even with 'mediocre' games. Having a character like Cloud (heck even Noctis just to give us hope that game still exist) present in PSAS is a good start to mend the fractured relationship with the fan base.

Dont forget mr valentine..hope this happens
soljah  +   761d ago
well doesn't it all come down to sales. if this game becomes a ps3 hit. then i'm sure a lot of third parties will want to jump on board. and sony will pay for use of more characters.
Godchild1020  +   761d ago
It would also be great marketing for their upcoming games as well. That is if PlayStation All-Star Battle Royal does well. I hope it does and I can't wait until Tuesday.
ginsunuva  +   761d ago
Why don't they jump on board right now anyways? It cant hurt them to have Cloud in a game.
TronEOL  +   761d ago
I'm hoping Cloud makes his appearance sooner than later. He is one of the most important PSOne era characters besides Solid Snake. And it absolutely blows my mind that both of them aren't in the game.

Crash, Spyro, Solid Snake, and Cloud (FFVII in general) launched the PSOne into success, yet none of them are there.

The only generations they really nailed are the PS2 and PS3 generations.

Doesn't matter to me too much though as the game is still tons of fun and I'm looking forward to playing the full game more, followed by potentially awesome post-launch DLC.
BlaqMagiq24  +   761d ago
Cloud Squall or Tidus is all I need. One of these NEEDS to make it to the game.
Kos-Mos  +   761d ago
Don`t fall that low Square. Please...

Sephiroth?

Relientk77  +   761d ago
Awesome personally I'd love Vivi and/or Zidane because I love FFIX a lot

Also put Tidus, Cloud, Squall in too

:)

medziarz  +   761d ago
I'd like them to go big - make a Final Fantasy Add-on with Lightning, Cloud, Zack, Seppiroth and a FF7->13 battle arena

DON'T GO CHEAP ON THIS ONE SQUARE !!!
a such $15 DLC WILL PLEASE THE FANS AS WELL AS Yoichi Wada

Resident evil characters needed also. I like to see RE revived from the undead. So its up to DLCapcom to come in also! If Konami was any good too they would add Zone of the enders or silent hill character to throw in.

Lightning sucks for the record too. She really does she actually blows Snow. Her sister gets ticked and FF13 1-? ends with the world crushed and burned!
izumo_lee  +   761d ago
That quote by Seth Killian is quite interesting.

"Square-Enix have great characters and a great place in PS history, but all of our discussions about these things are covered by non-disclosure agreements, so we can’t talk about even whether we’re talking about characters"

Does that mean that there is news about a Final Fantasy character but Superbot & Sony are not allowed to unveil anything yet due to some kind of agreement with Squarenix?
shempo  +   761d ago
any characters instead that b!tch lighting will be a good thing
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   761d ago
They put in Dante and Raiden before their games came out. Put in Noctis.
BigDollarZoe954  +   761d ago
nothing can really happen till square enix gives the thumbs and agrees to let superbot get license of the characters which i hope they do alot of good characters from Final Fantasy Universe Cloud,Vincent Valentine,Squall,Tidus,Sephiro th,Kuja,Noctis alot more the list goes on

I don't want Square Enix on Sony Party-game.

I Want Square Enix on AAA RPG-IP on Vita.
NirvanaInChains  +   761d ago
Well since everyone wants laura or cloud we will get lightning instead :) that's the square enix way - giving us what we don't want.
tiffac008  +   760d ago
Hopefully they include the localization of FF Type-0 for the Vita as well.
MiyagiSPG  +   760d ago
Lara Croft + Sora + Lightning (With future Cloud+Sephiroth DLC) = win :D
dannylilley  +   760d ago
Do people not realise how much it costs to get characters? Superbot are probably waiting to see how well they sell before they can afford or it's worthwhile (remember it's their first title) to pay Square Enix's license fees. By the same token Square Enix are probably waiting to see if PSASBR gets popular before they donate what is essential their legacy to a fighting game.
Neo-Axl  +   760d ago
It would be insane if we got Cloud, but.. due to Square Enix being the developers they are today, They'd throw Lightning our way.

But like Capcom, maybe they can give us a character like the new Dante meaning the new character Noctis, I'd much love to have Noctis over any FFXIII character, He seems extremely cool anyhow!.

Besides they would benefit alot from it, as would we, It annoy's me that we are still waiting for even the smallest scrap of info for FFVXIII, but if they gave us Noctis, That would clear up a bit of the dark cloud around the whole game, and bring back the hype!.
HeroLv9  +   760d ago
If Cloud gets put into the game i want Dart to be his rival!
