Last night, I sat down and watched the interview with Adam Isgreen talk about S3. After seeing how well Rash was treated from just the beta, I am curious to see who th next guest is.
With that in mind, Adam said some things about who the guest character potentially is could be, saying a silhouette would give the character away and that people would be incredible surprised and wowed on who it is.
After seeing Rash, I thought the second guest would be another Rare character, specifically Conker since 2016 would be his 15th anniversary and his original game came out in around March, when Season 3 hits. With Adam saying the character is more of a surprise, I feel adding another Rare character would be a bit to obvious, but I could be wrong.
Looking through the Xbox Exclusives, I do not see any characters really without drastically changing their tone that would fit. Master Chief from Halo I feel is too plane and as much as I would like to see a Gears of War character, I feel without drastically changing the tone of a character it wouldn’t happen. I was even considering Lara Croft, since Rise of the Tomb Raider has a year’s exclusivity with Microsoft being potentially that character, but I do not think she would be the greatest fit.
Other gaming companies I don’t see anyone jumping in. SEGA seems to be in bed with Nintendo, EA, Activiosn, and Ubisoft seem to be striking exclusive content for Sony. Square Enix is the one wild card, as they’re working out deals with both Nintendo and Sony, so maybe theres something in the works with Microsoft besides Tomb Raider?
Outside of the video gaming world, Disney seems to be having a lot of exclusivity with Sony, so I feel Star Wars and Marvel Characters are out, and DC comics and such are with Warner brothers. Other fighting game characters i feel are thrown out as well since a lot of the big name fighters are coming out next year as well, although Akuma in tekken does show signs of hope this could happen with KI.
Seeing how Adam claimed they want to keep the spirit of the character alive when playing as them, it seems to have me a quite a blur wondering who this guest character would be that would make sense, as well as practical. My ultimate guess, is that its Conker, and if not, another Rare character. What are your folk’s thoughts? I want to see if someone can guess who it is before the season starts.
