PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale Has Drake, Snake And Cole McGrath?
Three more characters were confirmed for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale today. Eric Ladin, an actor who supplied the voice of Cole McGrath in inFamous 2, revealed that the lightning-wielding super hero will be making an appearance in the cross-over brawling along with two other popular PlayStation heroes.
"This is a great cast, Glad to be a part of it along with @DavidBHayter & @nolan_north #all-stars #playstation #BattleRoyale," tweeted Ladin earlier today (via IGN).
Both of the names Ladin mentions should sound familiar to long-time PlayStation gamers. David Hayter voiced Solid Snake and Big Boss (Naked Snake) in the Metal Gear Solid series. Nolan North, meanwhile, is the voice of Uncharted's Nathan Drake. Drake and Snake both seem like obvious choices for Battle Royale, considering they're lead characters of two of the most recognizable PlayStation exclusive series.
I suppose Nolan North's a bit of a wild card, though. He's done a lot of other video game voiceover work. The only other character he played that's as well-known as Nathan Drake, though, is Desmond Miles from Assassin's Creed. If they're going to include Creed in Battle Royale, I'd think they would pick someone cooler like Ezio or Altair. Even if Desmond is in the game, I'd assume that North is voicing him and Drake.
All-Stars Battle Royale is essentially Sony's answer to the Super Smash Bros. series. Players take part in four-way brawls between iconic PlayStation characters in levels inspired by the game. Confirmed cast members include God of War's Kratos, Twisted Metal's Sweet Tooth, and Killzone's Radec.
SuperBot Entertainment is handling development of the PS3 exclusive. It's expected to hit stores in late 2012.
