Capcom Fighters In PlayStation All-Stars Is "A Question For Sony"

Sony's PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale will feature a host of iconic characters from the PlayStation universe, along with several recognizable heroes from third-party franchises.

So it's no surprise when a fan asked Capcom if some of their legendary video game faces will find their way into the new brawler. It would make perfect sense, given the sheer number of Capcom's memorable characters down through history.

But don't expect any such characters to be on the day one roster. Capcom boss Christian Svensson addressed the question in the Capcom-Unity forums, and here's what he had to say:

"I saw the announcement and as I'm sure you noticed, it's shipping this year. Which means... I'd bet that they're at or near content complete for launch. So if you're asking us to engage now in the hopes of getting something in, it's probably safe to assume that if something already isn't planned for/built, it's probably not going to happen (at least not for launch).

Second... while I'd like to see some Capcom stuff in the game (it looks cool), this is a Sony game, not a Capcom game. I'm not able speak to what their plans or intentions are with regard to third party content. Again, it's a question for Sony, not Capcom."

Well, at least he says he'd "like to see some Capcom stuff in the game." There's every possibility that more fighters could be added later on down the line, and that could easily include some Capcom characters, yes? But who else? How's about all the Final Fantasy legends? I was never the biggest fan of Ehrgeiz, after all.

Sorry the game is called "playstation all-stars" not "capcom all-stars". Mega man will have to pick a fight somewhere else. I hope sony keeps third party content out playstation all-stars.

Did you only read the headline?

Why would anybody only want first-party stuff? Even Nintendo didn't go that route with Brawl, and their first-party characters are 100x more iconic than Sony's.

This game could definitely benefit from 3rd party characters.

This would be a perfect game for DLC. Ship the game with stock Sony characters, while they work with other devs/studios etc for future characters and levels for upcoming DLC.

it'd be fitting if the Capcom characters were released as DLC, wouldn't it?

Thats what was in my mind regarding my first comment. But third party caracters that started on playstation brand would be ok. Snake for once or other mgs caracters.

Would love to see megaman or zero in the game however I won't lose hope if they don't appear because unlike nintendo, sony will mostly likely have lots of dlc for their brawler so I expect to see a lot of additional characters later on after release.

Is Mega Man truly a Playstation All-Star?

Yes. Mega Man X appeared exclusively on the Playstation Brand many times. Mega Man X 4-8 all were PS exclusives along with Mega Man X Command Mission.

Mega Man X 1-3 were Super Nintendo games, although X 3 did reappear on Playstation in Japan with cutscenes we didn't get until Mega Man X collections. (The collections may have been a multiplat release at the end of the PS2 era, but 7 and 8 were still exclusive)

There were more Mega Man X PS exclusives than there were Final Fantasy PS exclusives.

That's fine. I'd rather not have Ryu or Blanka in there just to increase the character list. I'd rather see actual third-party PlayStation characters.

I would love to see some Square-Enix characters (Cloud Strife, Sephiroth, Sora, Ansem, etc.), as well as Metal Gear Solid (Solid Snake/Old Snake and Raiden/Cyborg Raiden), and maybe even Dante (original one), Lara Croft, and whoever else.

seeing dante in all-stars would be awesome ! I think that the more characters we get, the better, even if there are some third party characters

If the image of the article is accurate, I'm already sold! I can't wait to see a match of Ratchet and Clank versus Kratos and the girl from Heavenly Sword!
