It's curious why they haven't shown 2 shoe-ins that seem to be the equivalents of Nintendo's mascots. You'd think since one demographic of this game is to capture the Smash Bros audience, they'd show the most popular characters that look similar to that style.
And I think several things point to Crash (not so much Spyro, but are they owned by the same company?) being in the game. Superbot has been pretty quick to debunk any wrong speculation (health bar in 1v1, Pokeballesque items, Vita exclusives, etc.), but for Crash Omar simply said, "No comment." They've also said they haven't had any trouble trying to get the third party characters they want in the game. I can't imagine this idea going through without the possibility of the developers including Crash in the roster.
So, anyone think that's why we haven't seen 2 of the most obvious and iconic characters? From the EVO reveals I think it's clear they're revealing rivals at the same time (Someone on here said Nate Drake hunts for treasure, while Big Daddy protects treasure, is that true?).
I mean, how awesome would it be if the reveal footage for Crash is him facing off with Jak or something?
