A pair (or trio, sort of) of new combatants has entered the ring as developer SuperBot has announced the inclusion of inFamous' Cole McGrath and Jak and Daxter's titular characters as the latest additions to upcoming four-player brawler, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.
The official announcement was made during San Diego Comic-Con this morning, quickly followed by a posting on the PlayStation Blog. Fans have been clamoring for more staple Sony characters to be included in the game and, with this pair of console mascots, it looks like they'll be getting exactly that.
First up is Jak and Daxter. While Jak looks to be handling most of the heavy lifting, Daxter gets pulled in for some mischievous assists during several combos. And check out that finisher starring a guest appearance from Dark Jak.
And then there's the supercharged hero (or villain), Cole McGrath. He'll be relying heavily on his amp for melee combat while loads of elemental weapons will allow him to get close quickly or attack from afar. As for the finisher SuperBot showed off, Cole actually drops back from the screen and gets to guide a lightening-wrapped tornado around the stage. Here's hoping evil Cole can be selected as an alternate outfit.
This game is looking better and better. The roster is shaping up nicely, the combat looks varied and yeah, let's just admit it, the Smash Bros. influences are apparent. But I mean that as a good thing. If you're going to borrow from a party game, why not borrow from one of the best there is?
Expect more character reveals in the coming months, leading right up to the PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale launch on Oct. 23.
