    Ok, 1st smart move was adding Jak and Daxter. Let’s see some other smart moves like Ratchet and Clank.

    I’ve always wanted to whoop Ratchet’s ass with Jak, make it happen developers.

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Awww yeah, Jak!

    Glad they got him in. Now we need Rachet!

  • Pretty sure Ratchet is a shoe-in, developer would be stupid to ignore one of the most popular series they got.

  • MrJechgo

    Give me Ratchet & Clank and we’re good to go ^^

    • LynxAmali

       Reminds me of how you unlocked Ratchet in Jak X if you had a Deadlocked save.

      It would be awesome seeing them in something together again.

  • Xapth

    I wonder if it’s still possible we’ll see the likes of Crash Bandicoot or Spyro?

    Anyways, awesome, I’m looking forward to discovering who else is gonna be in this game.

    I still think we’re gonna end up seeing Cloud from FF7 in here somewhere.

  • British_Otaku

    Finally, Jak and Daxter. Glad they seem to have their attacks intact like melee and the Dark Bomb. Even weapons. I don’t get much “feedback” from seeing the hits in comparison to other games, but if it has Jak and Ratchet represented in the end…

    It’ll find itself in my ownership, even if I don’t get my PS3 repaired soon.

  • Steven Higgins

    Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad they’re in this game but, I kinda wish they would stop stuffing Jak & Daxter in these cross-over games (this, PSM Heroes) as fan service and just continue the main Jak series. Lost Frontier was disappointing and the end was way to open to be the last game.

    • British_Otaku

      I was going to disagree with you, till I saw the word “continue”… Jak was a fantastic series from Naughty Dog and I would like to see them continue the tale.

      Insomniac did Resistance and returned for a few Ratchet and Clank projects.
      Sly Cooper is still getting projects despite Sucker Punch’s inFamous game series.

      The series hasn’t seen a good project since Daxter and a Naughty Dog one since Jak X. >_>

    • Göran Isacson

      I don’t know, it seems that Naughty Dog has pretty definitively left the series behind and they’re not willing to go back. And since I don’t trust new people with the series (look what happened to Spyro and Crash), I think it may just be for the best to let it lie.

  • Herok♞

    Finally Cole has been announced, now we need Zeke and it will be the best game ever.

    • omeganeko

       If Zeke managed to be in this my mind will be blown.

      • Herok♞

         Well parappa and fat princess got in, so it wouldn’t surprising or strange.

        • British_Otaku

          My guess is that there will only be main characters here, even if he is Cole’s best friend and pretty awesome. The two examples you listed named the franchises they were in, the Fat Princess is the only distinct character in her franchise as well aside from the other one… >_>

  • Although these are good additions, it was obvious they would be chosen. I want to see some surprising characters added to the roster. Although it will never happen, I’d love to see someone from Valkyria Chronicles, Disgaea and Demon’s Souls.

  • Niermyico

    Jak’s special resembles Sonic’s, while Cole’s special resembles Snake’s cept is a tornado.

    The only character that would probably be a surprise for me, if they were to add the Journeyer from Journey. How would the character plays will be a mystery in itself. lol

  • Guest

    As to be expected. I’m sure Rachet & Clank is next. Now after that, Crash and Lara Croft and Cloud please

    • Yeah, I guess Rachet and Lara are the most logical decisions to come next. Crash sounds pretty likely too.

      I don’t know about Cloud. I have this nagging pessimism in the back of my head, saying that All-Stars is going to shaft the JRPG department.

    • I’m banking more on Lightning simply because she was in Michael. I think she’d be more interesting because of her paradigms and such than cloud would be, but I also don’t care much for Cloud period. I’m hoping for Sora though, thatt’d be awesome.

    • ZEROthefirst

      Rachet & Clank, yes. Crash, yes. Lara Croft, no. Spyro, yes. Cloud… just… no.

      • Guest

        how dare you say no to Cloud…

        • ZEROthefirst

          How dare you say no to me saying no to you saying yes to cloud to me proclaiming no to cloud to something happening to me rambling on to the universe which it stands to… oh geez

  • Airgetlam

    I hope they have Cole’s original design for Infamous 2 as an alternate skin. The one that fans didn’t like. I think I may be the only one that thought it was good. Lol

  • they should have Colony Wars ship and other PS1 games

    EVIL ZONE characters

    •  Been meaning to pick that game up, but Evil Zone is Titus and Yukes territory.  Titus is gone, but Yukes may have the game rights… but too obscure of a 3rd party option I would say.

  • Göran Isacson

    Oh Jak. Childhood memories coming back now… now just let me have Ratchet too, so I can open up a big can of cartoony whoop-ass on people with those two.

    • Ratchet and Clank? Or just Ratchet.

      • Göran Isacson

        Ha ha, of course with Clank :) They’re a team just as much as Jak and Daxter, no separating them!

        • Well… Jak and Daxter did split for uh… well a few years. I think the same happened with Ratchet and Clank didn’t it? Super Agent Clank PSP game or something

  • When I first heard the announcement this morning, I was disappointed because I knew they were coming. However, after watching it I’m a lot more excited for these 2 as they’re actually characters I can say that I like, unlike the other peeps on the roster so far who I’m apathetic about. Plus, they look really fun to play as.

  • DarthSithZero


  • Roberto Armando Iraheta

    Eh, pretty predictable. Cool, nonetheless, since it IS Jak and Daxter.

    I hope Kat makes it in. Her gravity powers would be sick as hell.

  • Ben Sylvia

    Predictable, but now we can look forward to other characters.

    Folklore character please!

    Edit: Holy crap, Cole has the Gigawatt Blades from the first game! Cool!

    • stardusty

      Folklore characters???  Only in my most beautiful dreams. 

  • I’m cautiously optimistic. I enjoyed playing it at E3, after all.

    I think as long as people don’t get too caught up comparing it to Smash Bros., it might end up being pretty decent.

    It’ll probably all hinge on the fighter lineup. 

    • It is kinda… really similar to SSB though in multiple ways. I am still going to get it though. Looks fun enough.

      •  Oh yeah, it absolutely definitely is. (And while I’m reserving judgement till it’s released, I have a feeling Smash Bros will still be slightly better.)

        I think you’re right – it looks like it could be fun. Especially if you play locally with friends.

        • Friends… local… those words don’t mix for me. :P I’m a black sheep, an outcast.

    • I’m seeing some wild character suggestions which doesn’t help expectations.  Either people are too hopeful on the 3rd party roster or they don’t know what is a Sony series.

      It happened to other crossovers. Somebody on the SEGA Forum was obsessed with wanting Zool in SEGA All Stars Racing.

      • Fidelis

        I can understand the hope for 3rd parties a bit, with the use of Big Daddy and all.

        I’m happy for his inclusion, but the fact that Bioshock is a 3rd party title (and a  multiplat no less) really opened the flood gates in terms of wild character anticipation.

  • J

    Jak. Finally. The first character since Sly I’ve been really excited for…
    Question is, will Sony keep bringing quality characters the fans want?

  • Nice now just the original Crash and Spyro and nostalgia will force me to buy.

  • OMG they made Jak look so powerfull. I never thought I’d see the day when Jak kicks Kratos’ ass.

  • Oni123

    Woot jak and daxter ^^ at last a character(characters?) i would play as. 

  • Chris Pearson

    Dart from legend of dragoon would be more likely over cloud, they’re focusing more on 1st party franchises and games

  • eliel

    i think ratchet & w/clank might be next character they announce but still hoping for Gitaroo man

  • Nitraion

    crash,snake and onimusha char please….
    Yuri for shadow heart is welcome too ^^

  • Finally, I can see Jak beat the snot out of Kratos and Parappa the Rapper simultaneously. This is a good day to be a PS fan.

  • Fidelis

    This game has just reminded me of Battle Stadium D.O.N’s existance.

    I need to play that game again someday

  • Finally chars i know, love and like

  • Alexandra Cordes

    …And now I am going to buy it. Jak <3

    Too bad it isn't the lovable, silent one though. D:
