PS All Star was one big miss opportunities the video game. How Sony screws up a crossover like that is bizarre. They've been flaky with their legacy time to time. If they put some real effort into it, I would welcome a successor as well.
I still would like to see Crash in Smash Bros. My other third party choices would be Professor Layton, Bub/Bob from Bubble Bobble and Prince of All Cosmos from Katamari. Generally if it is from Sega/Capcom/Namco I would be thrilled too.
Although having your game's final boss be the company's failed attempt at a mascot is rather amusing.
It actually looks good too. Like, it's a licensed fast food game but looks like some effort is put into it. Reminds me of the old days of Treasure's McD game and Cool Spot.
I feel those games could've been significantly more enjoyable without the branding - the constant reminder that this game's purpose is to make you like company X more is distracting from the actual games. (The European Cool Spot actually had the logos in question removed - though there are still green bottles and of course the titular character remains). In-game advertisement for real world brands and products shouldn't be a thing, especially not in commercial games (I'm still bitter about the ads in Wave Race Blue Storm).
The only exeptions I occasionally find acceptable are when it's for other gaming franchises (preferably with a connection to the main game) and if it's done tastefully.

I have to say I couldn't help but crack a smile when I saw the trailer for this. It's so silly.
Any chance this will be the beginning of some dating sims with other fast food spoke persons. Ones like Wendy's, Ronald McDonald (for those with a clown fetish,) or Ugh, the King from those Burger King commercials.
Do we know what exactly is going to be available on 0303 2020? Is it the Midgar part from disc 1? I wonder how they’re naming it if that’s the case.. The box art in the trailer simply says Final Fantasy VII Remake but it needs something more.... perhaps add ”Prologue” or ”Part I”?
Anyway, impressive trailer as expected. SquareEnix always make great trailers. I just hope the combat is really good, not convinced just yet...
Knowing that it only goes to Midgar is giving me a bit of pre-order remorse. At this rate, it might take like 3 episodes just to get through disc 1. Might as well wait until they finish the whole game, and sell the Super Memorial Deluxe 30th Anniversary edition with all DLC content for $29.99.

Speaking of Final Fantasy, I've just started Final Fantasy I. Boy, this game sure introduces palette swaps quickly, eh? I'm pretty sure the 3rd and 4th enemies I encountered were just the 1st and 2nd palette-swapped.
Anyway, I'm going in as blind as I can, and I'm not very far at all yet. The introduction that crossing the first bridge triggers is pretty cool. Shows that they were already thinking a bit more cinematically/epic than what they were able to do in 1987. I did look up what spells are broken and how each stat works, since that's a little confusing without explaination. For example, it's obvious that Hit % = 7 doesn't mean that my character only has a chance of 7% to hit the enemy. Just went with Fighter/Red Mage/White Mage/Black Mage. So far, the White and Black mages are still pretty useless, so fights tend to take a while, especially if there's like 7 or 8 enemies.
