Following Sony's decision to leave Superbot to their own devices, a tweet from Stewart Gilray, the Development Director of Oddworld Inhabitants, Inc. had this to say about their upcoming DLC for PSASBR:



Does this mean that all DLC after Kat and Emmet will be scrapped, or that Sony Santa Monica just decided to pick some of their favroites and leave Superbot's choice out of the mix? Only time will tell.

EDIT: Not cancelled, just no Abe.

Why spend money on a dead horse?

Just take two free DLC, PSBR fans, and leave it at that.

To be fair, Superbot does have some questionable
shitty
taste when it comes to character selection.

Cheaper to do non-third parties maybe? Sounds like they were pretty much all ready to go. Unless the DLC is expensive or inconvenient to make, no idea why they'd downplay such a good character like this.

Unless they're trying not to draw attention away from the Lara/Cloud/Crash triple back

Oddworld inhabinats stille exist?

are they working on anything?
They are working on an HD remake of Abe's Oddysee. They recently released Stranger's Wrath to the Vita which is considered one of the best games on that system. They are also getting Munch's Oddysee ready for Vita as well.
Furthermore, all Oddworld games are now avaialble on US and EU PSN for the PS3 and Vita (with the exception of Munch).

Hopefully this pushes SSM to do some damage control and confirm or deny that they're doing DLC outside of Kat and Emmett.

Dang, so many people said that same first line. If they put out DLC for the game and it helps the game grow a bit, who is that hurting? A lot of us believe there's a legitimate market for this type of game, it's what you said last that is very true and ultimately made this game fail to get hyped, IMO.

Another character that is vaguely-to-not-at-all associated with the Playstation brand.
I know that MS moneyhatted Munch's Oddysee away, but the first two Oddworld games were generally held up as being pretty damn Playstation specific, to say nothing of the HD remakes being exclusive to Sony's current systems, thanks in no small part to MS's policies.

He's pretty synonymous with PlayStation One. When I mentioned All Stars to some friends back home a few immediately asked "Is Abe in it?"

All very true.

Dear Sony, instead of dropping this game to bomb in a late PS3 cycle, you should have worked, HARD, to get third parties characters (they work as marketing Sony, you know, marketing ?) and release this as a PS4 launch title and Vita cross over.

You would have sold one per PS4 sold.

Thank you, i am free for any consuling you need

Would be kind of fitting if the first and only DLC for all stars included a character from starhawk. Another 2nd party game sent to die by sony only for them to cut the studio off following its release/bombing.


Abe would have been a good pick for all stars. Shame he got relegated to (now canned) DLC
