Cole McGrath was not the only PlayStation mascot considered for Street Fighter X Tekken. According to Seth Killian on a recent episode of the PlayStation Blogcast, Nathan Drake almost got in as well.

“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.”

Drake will just have to join Master Chief and Marcus Fenix on the list of guest characters that will never be.
