Uncharted's Nathan Drake was considered for Street Fighter X Tekken

Posted by Jonathan 'Catalyst' Grey • March 5, 2012 at 10:35 a.m. PST
Uncharted's Nathan Drake was considered for Street Fighter X Tekken Capcom was intent on providing some exclusive content for the Sony versions of Street Fighter X Tekken, and Seth Killian mentioned that Uncharted's Nathan Drake was in the running to JushPushStart.

The development team ended up settling on Cole from Infamous because of his abilities, but Killian offered some insight as to why.

“We were committed to try and provide some extra content to Sony and we were excited about looking at the different roster and seeing who was out there, and you know you’ve got all sort of cool characters like Nathan Drake, but you know Nathan Drake has kind of a nice Han Solo kind of everyman and he’s a comical guy but the Japanese team got really excited about Cole and the flexibility of his powers, projectiles, grabs, and all sorts of cool stuff.”

Do you think the development team made the right choice, or would you have rather seen Nathan Drake in the game? Leave a comment below with your thoughts.

I would have rather had Nathan Drake than the stupid cats. Cole and Drake would have been nice and more appealing to those outside of Japan.

Agree with number 3. The catz are just mini clones of Ryu and Kazuya I believe. 2 slots that could have gone to well all the leaked characters that we are going to pay extra for anyway. but that's another argument altogether.

Cole's a WAY better choice if it's between him and Nate. HOWEVER, Nathan Drake's would've been a better choice than those stupid cats.

Would have been an awesome addition. As a matter of fact his story would have made the most sense out of every single character in this game. I mean he's a god damned treasure hunter, so hunting for Pandora actually MAKES SENSE.

FUQQ they just closed the streams on twitch.tv during a match, Capcom must have stopped them.

@12

Sony paid for the development because they wanted exclusives, where Microsoft didn't want to pay for development of exclusives. How is that wasting anything?

#15
Ex_Ein said on March 5, 2012 at 11:11 a.m.

I'd rather have the cats over nathan because I'm one for more humorous characters in a game especially since nathan's abilities are very limited as a fighter

#16
Rorshock520 said on March 5, 2012 at 11:13 a.m.

It's okay, he's probably on-disc DLC.

Someone at Capcom needs to be fired for all of these horrible ideas.

#3 and #8 nailed it. nathan woulda been better than the cats and yea nathans storyline woulda made sense. but o well it is what it is im tired of everyone bitching arent yall just excited that this game is finaly comin out????? i am les go!!!!

SAMURAI said on March 5, 2012 at 11:21 a.m.

Let's save this crap for SF vs random characters that don't belong in a fighting game.

Thank god, Nathan Drake is probably one of the most boring videogame characters ever.

nathan > cole by far.
tho, as mentioned, rather both instead of dem cats >_>

halo said on March 5, 2012 at 11:41 a.m.

Sony already took over with far too many silly characters in SF X T. I hope this doesn't happen again to this big extend or at least i would have preferred Nathan Drake and Cole only, with each wearing something to symbolize a SF and a Tekken character :P So Nathan Ryu and Cole Kazuya?

#26
Nago said on March 5, 2012 at 11:41 a.m.

He would have definitely gotten them more sales than Cole. I can't think of many people that care about that guy or his games.

If they really wanted to put a character from Infamous in, they should have had The Beast be a hidden boss.

No, no more stupid guest characters.

Well, if Nathan Drake had been in the game, he would've got the Street Fighter-Steroid Injection treatment that Cole got and he would look almost identical to Chris Redfield :)

Hopefully the Sony Crossover fighting game is still real and will see the light of day soon!

PsychoCrusher said on March 5, 2012 at 12:35 p.m.

ingrid would have been a good exclusive, even though she's in alpha 3 she's really from capcom fighting jam so would cool for her to just come in non cannon games like this .

#34
GodPride said on March 5, 2012 at 12:50 p.m.

I would have prefered Nathan over Cole who would have been more appropriate in UMvC3 with all the other superheroes.

But none of them are raw fighters like Ryu who follows the theme of Martial Arts and Craft where SF was built on. Then again, neither does Bison or Rose....

Holy crap, my eyes can't unsee that mess.

I love Nathan and the Uncharted series, but he would be even less of a fit. Having him instead of the cats would be preferable though.

#37
Heroicvenom said on March 5, 2012 at 2:04 p.m.

That nice for the PS3 folk, but what about us 360 players. why can't we have a few exclusive characters for ourselves. even the PS3 boys got BBA mega man and pac man and they ain't console specific. playing favorites capcom?

#38
Bibuki said on March 5, 2012 at 2:44 p.m.

wow that would've been wack. might as well add the dovakhin haha. anyway where the hell is Asura? this character is just too sick

loganx90 said on March 5, 2012 at 5:41 p.m.

nathan drake? why not lara croft with her bigs boobs, with this the game will be a BIG success

#40
anon1010 said on March 5, 2012 at 6:02 p.m.

That would've been sick if they added him but I agree that Cole has way more going for him compared to Nate.

#41
gammabolt17 said on March 5, 2012 at 6:37 p.m.

Damn, I am already jealous of PS3ers having Cole, but I would've been soooo green with envy if you got Nathan.

#42
RedRapperSux said on March 5, 2012 at 6:44 p.m.

His character design is far too boring.

#43
hazelnut1112 said on March 5, 2012 at 7:24 p.m.

Damn would have been pretty cool if they added both Drake AND Cole as a team.

Cole finding out about Pandora goes out to venture to see if it's linked to (insert backstory here). But on his way he finds a treasure hunter by the name of Nathan Drake who is also interested in the box. They both venture out to find out what kind of power the mystery box possesses.

Pretty cheesy but it could have worked.

#44
ScrubStep said on March 5, 2012 at 11:03 p.m.

The cats were voted on by a certain ps3 if i remember correctly. So all the ps3 owners really just have to hold dat.

#45
No_Surrender said on March 5, 2012 at 11:21 p.m.

Just wait for Sony Smash Bros. He and Cole will be in it.

#46
RA_MO said on March 6, 2012 at 4:42 a.m.

I will "hold dat" and love it lol. Does not matter about complaining about the cats. They are in the game.. The game is out and even if they were not... Those 12 characters will stay snug in their disc locked prison until further notice. Since Sony paid money to include them... There is no such thing as a wasted slot... If anything they just provided more slots... Slots that were reserved by Toro and Kuro and no Bryan Fury, or Cody and Cody were ever going to get them. Also Nathan might work in the game and might not but due to the fact that neither the cats nor Cole have storylines if I remember correctly.. There may have been a decent chance that if Nathan was added... He would not have a plot either.

#47
RA_MO said on March 6, 2012 at 4:43 a.m.

*Guy and Cody

I smell Capcom X Namco.
