During the Playstation All-Stars: Battle Royale panel at Comic Con, SuperBot entertainment announced two new additions to the game’s roster. inFAMOUS‘s Cole McGrath will be slinging lightning – and occasionally fire and ice – at Sony’s mascots, and Jak and Daxter‘s Jak will be firing eco at his opponents.
- Big Daddy (Bioshock)
- Cole McGrath (inFAMOUS)
- Colonel Radec (Killzone)
- Fat Princess (Fat Princess)
- Heihachi Mishima (Tekken)
- Jak and Daxter (Jak and Daxter)
- Kratos (God of War)
- Nathan Drake (Uncharted)
- PaRappa (PaRappa the Rapper)
- Sly Cooper (Sly Cooper)
- Sweet Tooth (Twisted Metal)
- Toro Inoue (Together Anywhere!)
For a look closer look at the new additions, check out the trailers below.
Cole plays as expected, using lightning-based attacks to deal damage. His supers range from simply throwing opponents to controlling an all-enveloping vortex. Cole has been an expected character from the start, so it’s nice to see his inclusion confirmed.
With Daxter chilling on his shoulder, a very Jak II-esque Jak fires his eco-gun at opponents. His ultimate attack involves transforming into Dark Jak, flying about the stage and raining dark eco down on the competition. Another expected addition, he is a welcome fighter on the battlefield.
Playstation All-Stars: Battle Royale hits PS3 and Vita on October 23, 2012. Until then, keep checking Front Towards Gamer for updates on characters, stages, and whatever else SuperBot entertainment wants to share. Our fingers are still crossed for Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon!
