Grab a bowl of popcorn, kick off your shoes and try to find a comfortable place to sit, because Sony has dropped about half a dozen videos for us to peruse, all showing off the latest batch of characters to be introduced for the PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale roster. Ratchet and Clank, Spike, Dante and Sackboy are all ready for a tussle.
Sony had quite a bit to say about Battle Royale during their Gamescom press conference this morning. For starters, purchasing the game for your PlayStation 3 will net you a code to download the Vita version at no additional cost. For you fighting fanatics out there, that should be more than enough to get the ole' blood pumping.
If not, then here's a look at the newly announced combatants, starting with two of the PlayStation's most recognizable mascots, Ratchet and Clank. And, yes, the game series' bizarre weapons are present and accounted for.
Next up is Spike, from Ape Escape. Ape Escape for the original PlayStation game console was the first title to take advantage of dual analog sticks. Spike had a variety of swingable weaons in the game, and so it's only fitting that he fall back on that arsenal in Battle Royale.
Third, we have Dante. Keep in mind that this is Dante from the upcoming DMC and not quite the same white-haired rock star we've become familiar with over the years. Either way, the guy looks like he sure knows how to handle himself.
Finally, we have everyone's favorite ball of adorableness, Sackboy. LittleBigPlanet is all about being crafty, which means Sackboy will have access to all sorts of creative tools to make his opponents suffer.
