Sony contacted Oddworld Inhabitants about Abe, and Battle Royale

Sony contacted Oddworld Inhabitants about Abe, and Battle Royale

Oddworld Inhabitants development director Stewart Gilray talked to CVG, revealing Sony expressed interest in bringing Abe, a classic Playstation character, on board for Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale, but SuperBot Entertainment, the developer of the game, hasn’t gotten in touch yet.

“I was over at Sony America and they were definitely up for it, but the developer hasn’t gotten back to us. We’ve been trying to get in touch with them since May and can’t work out if they’ve fixed their character line-up for the release version or if they’re simply not interested?!”

However, Gilray is not disappointed yet. He says he would absolutely love it if the character can get in there as DLC, if the lineup is sealed and past the submission deadline.

“We’d love to get him in the game. We’ve already been talking about the moves he could have like possessing Kratos and beating the shit out of everyone… I guess they’re busy and we’re busy.”

Abe should have been one of the first characters to be included in the game, as he helped the Playstation build its reputation, being one of the best 2D platformers of the era. What are your thoughts?

    not one of the best 2D platformers of the era, one of the best platformers of all time!
    it was so ahead of its time even to this day it still amazes me playing it and saying this came out WHEN!?
    so cant wait till the remakes come out!
    i hope once their done we get a all new game.
    same as the original but obviously a all new game, make fans feel the way they did the first time they played the original all those years ago!
    wish crystal dynamics would do another pandemonium game too, that was so much fun!
    not as sophisticated and impressive as abe was, but still one hell of allot of fun!
