Oddworld Inhabitants wants Abe PlayStation All-Stars inclusion

"But the developer hasn't gotten back to us," reveals development director

Oddworld Inhabitants has expressed strong interest in seeing its character Abe included in SuperBot's PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale... but so far the developer's not returned its calls.

Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee is one of the most iconic titles of early PlayStation and clumsy protagonist Abe would certainly sit well alongside the likes of PaRappa the Rapper in the PS3 and Vita brawler.

However, Oddworld Inhabitants development director Stewart Gilray explained to CVG that PlayStation All-Stars' developer is yet to get in touch after certain sectors of Sony expressed big interest for Abe's inclusion.

"I was over at Sony America and they were definitely up for it, but the developer hasn't gotten back to us," Gilray told CVG.

"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?!"

If it was the case that Abe's potential inclusion had missed release deadline, said Gilray, then he'd still "absolutely be interested" in securing a DLC spot for the Oddworld hero.

"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."
