I would actually count the crossover fighters as their own series, yes, because they've got more people and experience among themselves on working on such things. Consider as well that this(that is, Sony Battle Royale) is being developed by a rather new company, rather than Capcom, who've been working on fighting games for a while.
I don't think it's generally larger of many of these "first entries" include roughly 12-15-ish characters in them. I think that's a safe bet to go by.
And a fighting game with poor balance leads to many people playing the same stale old characters over and over again, which is why I keep bringing it up.
Supposed leaked info involving ICO.
PLEASE let this mean Ico is going to be a playable character. Because if he's in, Wander's practically a shoo-in.
I hate people who generalize. They're all idiots.
My VGM Arrangements.
I think the Smash Bros. comparisons are because it's a four person free for all fighter using 3D models in a 2D plane that can move freely and jump around platforms. There are a lot of crossover fighting games but few games specifically like that. And I'm also pretty sure Smash Bros. was the first to popularize that particular style.
I really hope Polygon Man is in this game. He'd make the most sense as a stage.
And now that this game is coming out I really REALLY hope to see Sega do a crossover fighter.
As for a newish studio prohibiting size, well, Netherrealm hadn't made a game when they tackled MK 9, and yet that game has 32 characters.
You can say this is a sequel to an established franchise, but the question becomes, is the limitting factor for new franchises that they run out of time, or out of ideas? Did they limit BlazBlue's initial roster because they had hit a wall, or because they were in danger of repeating themselves? In this instance, the latter is definitely not a concern.
Also why I'm bringing up the idea of "you shouldn't be hoping for an overly large cast of characters since it'd be a nightmare to balance".
Also note I said "consider as well". The main point is that these new fighting game series usually start off with smallish rosters of 10-15 characters to begin with, SFxT was brought up as a rebuttal and you're replying to my counter-rebuttal to that..
I might care, but first, which system?
I know Sony said that there will be some 3rd party support, but I had a hard time just thinking of other first party characters not shown in the gameplay trailers beyond characters from Uncharted, Shadow of the Colossus, and Ratchet 'n Clank. Then I read up on Wikipedia about what exactly Sony owns and I saw that they own the Legend of Dragoon series so if they add Dart and/or Rose then this might be the greatest game ever made. I am now thoroughly interested in this game.
Radical to the max!
Well chaps, there seems to have been a bit of a leak. These characters will make an appearance in All-stars:
Dr. Neo Vortex
As you can see, the source is chatty voice actors. Some of these might only get background speaking roles, and completely mute characters(like Sackboy) are obviously not on this list. I also don't see any Japanese characters, so it's safe to assume that it is incomplete.
I think it is also safe to assume thatDrake, Ratchet & Clank, Jak & Daxter, Crash Bandicoot, Spyro and Raymanare going to be playable. Sony probably doesn't knock on a third party's dev door to use 1 of their characters as background character. And the first 3 speak for themselves, really.
&&&& YEAH, CRASH BANDICOOT! And they'd BETTER use the old Spyro design! AND HOLY &&&&ING &&&& RAYMAN! I just finished playing Rayman Origins, geez, I wish I had a PS3!
I dunno if that's a legit leak or not. You can edit IMDb right? Because it looks like someone went through and just added the most popular Sony characters and filled them in with whoever most recently did the voice acting for them. Granted it's probably true seeing as they are the more popular characters Sony has; I just don't see how anyone could have information about voice actors already. Unless I'm missing sources on IMDb or something.
Radical to the max!
I got the impression from that site that the profiles are from the actual actors and they are the ones who edit them. My apologies if that's wrong.
Keep in mind that these same "leaks" happened all the time in the buildup to Brawl- remember when everyone flipped out over Krystal being "confirmed"? Not saying it's NOT a valid source, but remember to take these things with a grain of salt.
Does no one remember when 50 cent(the rapper) was listed to be the voice of Epona in Twilight Princess(check the date of the article if you think I'm lying)? Or how James Harper forgot what character he voiced in Starcraft, and IMDb listed him as playing the role of Zeratul(when he was supposed to be the role of Arcturus Mengsk)?
The point is that the site has inaccuracies because it can be edited by anyone. It's nowhere near a trusted source.
We have no idea what the cast is and speculation's running high already, but jumping to conclusions like this isn't a great way to go by it. Sure, it's something to watch out for, but getting excited over "leaks" like this doesn't do good most of the time.
