Last year, rumors started circulating about a game called Title Fight, supposedly a PlayStation-branded brawler in the line of Nintendo’s popular Super Smash Bros. franchise. We’ve all seen how that title has evolved into PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale at this point, but thanks to an amateur cameraman with a Youtube account, we can finally see the video that started those Title Fight rumors.
What follows is fan-captured footage from Comic-Con 2012. SuperBot Entertainment decided to show off the video used to pitch Title Fight to Sony execs more than a year ago, which was later green-lit and eventually became Battle Royale.
What you are about to see features some of the now-familiar playable characters like Kratos and Fat Princess, as well as a look at an early take on the Hades level and one that appears to be the speeding train from Uncharted 2 being attacked by flying Warhawks.
If I had to guess, I’d say that the third level we’re seeing (ancient temple with a giant statue) is from Uncharted as well. Either way, I’m hoping to see more levels like the ones shown off here in Battle Royale’s final product. The official levels we’ve seen so far are a bit too caged for my liking and don’t feature enough platforms to jump around on. The early take on Hades looks to offer exactly that and, while I don’t think the train level would work too well as it is shown here, the thought of a moving platform in a more dynamic environment is certainly appealing.
So there you have it; a brief glimpse at the origins of Sony’s upcoming beat-em-up in all its fuzzy, shaky glory. The wait to finally play the game is almost over, as PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale is set to launch on Oct. 23.
