Character Wishlist

#1 Posted by The_EDJ (52 posts) -

Pretty simple, but with Sony Santa Monica taking over DLC, I'm really hoping for many more characters to be released. Who are you holding out hope for? One thing I'd like to see are rivals released. Like a standalone villain opposite their protagonist, just like what they're doing with Zeus for Kratos. I'd also like to see how obscure Sony can go to really highlight some characters.

Crash Bandicoot (Crash Bandicoot series)
Dr. N Cortex (Crash Bandicoot series)
Spyro the Dragon (Spyro the Dragon/Skylanders series)
Tomba (Tomba series)
Cloud Strife* (Final Fantasy VII)
Sephiroth* (Final Fantasy VII)
Lazarevic (Uncharted series)
Clank Standalone (Ratchet and Clank series)
Nefarious (Ratchet and Clank series)
Captain Qwark (Ratchet and Clank series)
Daxter Standalone (Jak and Daxter series)
Kor (Jak and Daxter series)
Raz (Psychonauts)
Panda King** (Sly Cooper Series)
Calypso (Twisted Metal Series)
Musashi (Brave Fencer Musashi series)

*I understand there's Dissidia, and I have other personal FF favorites I'd rather see, but from a "Playstation All-Star" point of view, Cloud/Sephiroth fits best due to his marketability

**It's hard to pinpoint one Sly Villain as they're all memorable/similar. I felt Panda translated really well.

I didn't go into detail on movesets or anything, but I'd love to hear some ideas of your own. And if you have a moveset or any Supers in mind (like Crash wearing an Aku Aku mask for one hit kills) I'd love to hear them.

Which is pretty much the wish-list I created for the full game, and yet here we are, with not one that made it in!.. Well, minus Zeus as DLC. Woopee?

KKKKKKIIIIIIRRRRRRYYYYUUUUUU KAZUMA!!! Cannot say that one enough would make me pick the game back up. And it also works in their favour because they want to put characters in for marketing purposes and Yakuza 5 is apparently having announcement in May where they will presumably announce Western release...fingers crossed!!! But also need some final fantasy however I get a feeling dlc characters will all be current gen and prob be tied to new releases in some way so doubt anything outside of that.

Actual Sony characters.

I think an Adam unit from Rengoku would work well and would make a great addition to PS All Stars.

  • Sony exclusive series
  • Series based on free-for-all android pit fighting with infinite respawns, which is what PS All Stars is.. minus the androids.
  • No shortage of ideas for attacks - hammers, axes, chainsaws, flamethrowers, shotguns, floating proximity mines, etc, etc, etc
  • Could change form mid-battle to reflect attacks you use, and/or as an all-star moves to become more powerful.
  • All-star meter essentially mirrors the RPG elements of the source games (fight enemies to level up / acquire elixir / fill meters / become more powerful)

Just Gray Fox. Yurt from Demon's Souls would be cool too. Ah hell.

  • SOTN Alucard
  • Tomba
  • Strider
  • God Hand guy
  • Auron
  • Eve from Parasite Eve
  • Black Maiden
  • Ninja Shadow of Darkness guy
  • Gekko (Metal Gear)
  • Vamp
  • Red XIII
  • Raziel
  • Ellen Page and ghost buddy
  • Talbot
  • Dino Crisis lady
  • Pyramid Head
  • Kazuma Kiryu

Or just... Gray Fox.

Alucard would be neat and maybe so would Gabriel Belmont.

That said, Leon Belmont is not too shabby himself, and he is from Lament of Innocence which is still Playstation exclusive.
