Now that PAX is actually underway, SuperBot Entertainment has finally had the chance to officially reveal their two newest additions to the PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale roster, giving Heavenly Sword's Nariko and MediEvil's Sir Daniel Fortesque their own reveal trailers.
We announced yesterday that Gamespot had spilled the beans early on SuperBot's PAX announcements, coming just one day after prematurely revealing Metal Gear Solid: Revengeance's Raiden, as well. Now that the ball is rolling at PAX, however, the folks behind PlayStation All-Stars have taken the opportunity to reveal Nariko and Sir Dan for themselves.
Both new combatants for Sony's upcoming four-player brawler (Due out on Nov. 20), were highlighted in a recent post on the PlayStation Blog with Community Manager Daniel Moniago providing all of the details. First up is the transforming-blade-wielding Nariko.
As you can see, Nariko is a high flying character that offers a bit of risk for a lot of reward. She utilizes the multipurpose Heavenly Sword with deadly precision, stringing together combos that work as well on the ground as in the air.
Sir Dan, on the other hand, belongs in the heavy class of characters occupied by the likes of Big Daddy and Sweet Tooth. He's a slower character, but that's compensated by some massive gains on your AP. You can't really go wrong with a classic.
And with that, the leaked roster from July has officially run dry. SuperBot has promised to attend several more conventions leading up to PlayStation All-Star's late November release, but they haven't said anything about whether or not they'll be adding additional unknown characters to the roster. I suppose we'll find out once Tokyo Gameshow rolls around in a couple of weeks. Fingers crossed for Dart, Crash, Spyro and/or Pyramid Head.
