Pretty much the feeling I have. They can add all the characters they want, but they should have gotten the bear essentials first.
which they couldn't because of unknown reasons. Most likely the companies that own them.
Snake I can understand not being in due to his inclusion in SSBB. The game already is compared enough with out that lingering over it's head
But Crash Bandicoot makes absolutely no sense. Drake & Jak and Daxter both Naughty Dog characters are in this game but not Crash? I may have to double check my facts but unless Naughty Dog sold ALL the rights to the Bandicoot series there's no logical reason for him being absent
While Cloud is a hardsell since only at that point did FF become an exclusive, 7 was definitely a blitzkrieg like maneuver in the console war of that generation. I could honestly see 7 having some representation.
Spyro also poses the same problem that Crash does. Insomniac games made Resistance & Ratchet and Clank as well as Spyro but here we are with no Spyro.
Lara was never really a PS exclusive since Tomb Raider 1 was on both the Saturn and PS
At this rate if I don't get at least Crash Bandicoot & Kevin Butler I'm just gonna stick to playing this game at a friends house and that's about it.
