Video game crossovers are nothing new. In fact, some titles are born from wanting to cross over numerous franchises (Mario Kart, Marvel vs. Capcom, Super Smash Bros., Etc.). Yet sometimes, a crossover happens that amazes gamers. One of those happened recently when Kratos, from God of War, was added to the amazing retro-style game Shovel Knight. The two games could not be more different in some ways, yet the inclusion worked well, and gamers were happy to have Kratos in game. But how did he get in there in the first pace? Well, David D’Angelo talked with Santa Monica Studios (creators of God of War) about the whole process.
Sometimes, you just can’t help but do a crossover, especially when it’s so much fun to do. The developers of Shovel Knight have long expressed their love for the old school games, in fact, that’s why they made Shovel Knight. From the look of the game to the classic feel, the game is everything we loved about the old school genre.
Sony are not currently planning on remastering other God of War games in addition to God of War III. Replying to a question of the official PlayStation blog, Santa Monica Studio employee Aaron Kaufman stated that the developer currently had “no plans for others in the franchise to bring over [to PlayStation 4]”.
If the latest issue of PSM3 is to be believed, we could be seeing a brand new entry in the God of War series sooner than later and with a possible online co-op mode!
It seems that SCEA Santa Monica is working on the next installment in the God of War series if a job posting is to be believed.
