The lights are on
A new trailer showing the intro to the game (see below) reveals the final boss for Sony's upcoming fighter. Remember Polygon Man? Of course you don't. Polygon Man was originally used as the mascot for the original PlayStation pre-launch marketing strategy, but was eventually dropped entirely.
“Polygon Man was going to be this iconic brand that would talk in
various media to consumers as this kind of next-gen type spokesman," then president of Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios Phil Harrison in an interview with Edge in 2009.
Surprised? Think Sony could have found a better end boss? Let us know in the comments below. We also have a complete list of the entire roster available here.
i would've preferred Sephiroth... not specifically only in Sony games but still
it should have been a sega dreamcast looking for revenge on sony for putting it out of business
**BRAAAHHHH**, I already bet my friend ten bucks that the final boss would be called Mister Hand, or would be Kevin Butler.
HAH! Thas funny.
Game will be a lot of fun.
Its not a bad choice, since they don't really have any iconic bad guy to fill that slot. I guess they are going to run with the Epic Mickey story, the villain is the jealous forgotten character. Much better than it being some random 3rd party character.
Should have had Kevin Butler as the final boss.
I really liked the trailer, final boss could use some work though.
This... makes sense, think about it that one who was supposed to be the face (no pun intended) of Playstation was cast aside, then these new guys appear and become more recognizable than him on said console, I would become a final boss too if it happened to me.
One of the best openings ever made!
I think this is Sony making fun of themselves.
Quickly glancing at the article I got excited because I thought it kinda looked like Uka Uka and we were finally going to get a Crash tie in. Oh well..
Does anyone know the song?
i think that they needed more obscure characters in this game so yes i like it!
Sprites always did own polygons, kinda like... well, never mind.
I don't know, he looks like a dweeb but I guess it's on par with a giant hand. The history is interesting and obscure.
