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.
