When this game came out in late 2012 on the PS3, peoples opinions where mixed, but most people said that it was a decent effort. So with the Remastered version being released now at the end of November for the PS4, i kinda though "Why not make a sequel with more characters that are actually known for their Playstation titles?" I mean i never played this game and will certainly pick up the remastered version, but the fact that characters like Big Daddy from Bioshock and Isaac Clarke from Dead Space are in this game, eventhough their games are multiplatform dosen't make sense for me.

So i decided to pick my top 10 characters that should be in the next All-Stars game (if there will be one of course) I will only pick Playstation exclusive characters, or that are atleast synonymous with the Playstation brand. Heihachi for example is for me, because eventhough Tekken is Multiplatform now, Tekken got his Fame during the PS1 and PS2 days.

So let's begin.

 

Abe (Oddworld Series)

latest?cb=20151207223655

Considering that he was one of the earliest Mascots for the Playstation brand, i was shocked that Abe was not considered a playable character in this game. He could slap others in Exodus and he could use a chanting ability, that could maybe be used in this game, like Kirbys copy ability in smash bros. Since Oddworld has made a comeback recently, it would be a good promotion too to include him.

 

Sephiroth (Final Fantasy VII)

Considering that our hero Cloud is having fun with the smash bros crew, i thought Sephiroth would be great for this game. He is one of the most iconic bad guys in video games and Final Fantasy VII was pretty much the reason for alot of people to get a PS1 and pushing JRPGs into the mainstream. He could maybe be a bit OP, considering his sword has such a long range, but maybe there is a way to nerf that. :P

 

Crash Bandicoot (Crash Bandicoot series)

3150127-crash1.jpg

This is probably the most obvious choice for me in the whole list. While Abe was some sort of a mascot, Crash Bandicoot really was THE mascot for the Playstation brand from the Playstation 1 days and for some even till this day. Not to mention, Crash is able to tornado punch, has a bazooka, can belly splash, etc. So saying that he would be a bad fighter is not an excuse. With the remasters coming this summer, this would give Crash even more boost.

 

Ellie (The last of Us)

4354553-last-of-us-ellie.jpg

Since Nathan Drake is already in the game, and Crash Bandicoot is also a request from me, why not finish the triangle of Naughty Dog games? :P

I think Ellie would be the best choice from the last of us, which for some people is one of the best games ever made. She has a knife, molotovs, nail bombs and all those other handy gadgets. She is also immune to spores, so maybe her special could be something like a spore bomb that drains the opponents life away. :)

 

Lara Croft (Tomb Raider Series)

latest?cb=20140814030242

Another obvious choice. Lara Croft made it cool to play video games back on the early days of the PS1. She was the first known women in video games who had sexappeal, could kick butt and was incredibly charismatic. Lara could control very agile and of course she has guns and alot of melee attacks. She deserves to be in the sequel.

 

The Prince (Katamari Series)

Okay, i must admit. This is not a 100% serious suggestion. But still, Katamari is still a great series and i love the PS2 and PSP titles, which are addictive as hell. I think he could be a joke character, where he uses his Katamari and roles characters up. :P

 

Pyramid Head (Silent Hill 2)

1230111-pyramid_head_0_ost.jpg

Considering we're talking about an iconic character from one of the most Iconic Survival horror games ever, needs to get him on the next game. I think Pyramid Head could be like a slow character, but at the same time very powerful and creepy. I think they could also distort the screen like in Silent Hill to confuse the opponent.

 

Sora (Kingdom Hearts series)

Kingdom.Hearts.II.full.12510.jpg

Kingdom Hearts proved to be Squares biggest franchises on the PS2 (Behind Final Fantasy of course) So Sora has to be in it, since alot of Kingdom Hearts would probably buy the game. He would probably be a generic sword fighter with the keyblade, but maybe you can also use Soras summoning skills to summon some disney characters like Dschinni or SImba, it would be cool. :P

 

Spyro (Spyro the Dragon Series)

latest?cb=20150626225921

While not as obvious as Crash Bandicoot, Spyro was also a famous Platformer on the PS1 and certainly still has a large following of fans (hey @Dark Horse ;) ) With a four legged creature breathing fire, it's a bit hard to figure how he fights. I guess he would move faster thanks to his wings and he would probably have better health by shielding himself with them. I never played the games, but i know they mean alot to certain people.

 

Wander (Shadow of the Colossus)

latest?cb=20130912155334&path-prefix=tea

Yeah, i know Wander is another generic Sword fighter, but we need Wander in here, because SotC is a PS2 classic. I mean, Wander killed a bunch of colossy with his sword so wander would be perfect. He could also bring his Horse and charge at his opponents and maybe even summon the colossy on the stage which would be total chaos.

 

This is my list. Have more suggestions? Don't agree with mine? Comment below, let me know. :)

I know that there were licensing issues that kept some like Crash out of the game(thanks Activision!), bit if there were no licensing issues that list of extra characters is solid. While Tomb Raider and KH are multi-platform now, we both know they owe their popularity to the PS brand. It would be a nice touch to see them included.

I looked over all the licensing stuff for this list and just thought who would fit in this roster. Crash is such an iconic franchise and i looked over the activision thing. Let's be honest, not alot of people cared about the Sega Saturn and PC versions of the first tomb raider and the KH games for the nintendo handheld games weren't as positively received as the main games.

Definitely agree with Crash and Spyro, they should've been in the first game from the start

Spyro would be a fun addition. He has a fair few moves throughout the Spyro games so it would work well.

I was thinking that Pyramid Head would be a bit too dark for this kinda game but Big Daddys in it and he isn't exactly a ray of sunshine!

Heck, Kratos is in the original and God of War is a gory R-Rated game. I think it shouldn't matter from what kinda games these characters come, as long as they where important to the Playstation brand. I mean, wouldn't it be cool to beat up Sackboy with Pyramid head. :P

Characters from iconic PS titles?

Sweet Tooth, please; they don't get more PSX Iconic than him... plus, Tooth vs. Pyramiddy would be EPIC.

I was actually just playing Shadow of the Colossus like 15 minutes ago. It'd be cool to see Wander in one of these...

Sweet Tooth from Twisted Metal was actually in the original game and if they make a sequel, i am sure they will put him there again.

Also, that would be a dream match. Both of them are total psychopaths and Sweet Tooth gets already mad if you destroy his icecream cone. :P
