Snake, Drake and Cole Confirmed for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale?

IGN: A few weeks ago, Infamous 2 voice actor Eric Ladin Tweeted that he was back in a motion capture suit and doing more work as Cole, the game's hero. When he confirmed it wasn't for another Infamous game, we all jumped to the conclusion it was for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. Today, he's confirmed it -- along with the fact that Metal Gear Solid's Snake and Uncharted's Nathan Drake are in the game. Or he's just trolling everyone. (PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, PS3)

I guess someone didn't get an NDA yet, or he didn't read it.

Or maybe he really is trolling everyone...lol

But I doubt it.

Sonic might be there too.

actually snake case is very interesting.

in one hand, the whole main sequels of MGS got released on the playstation platform while nintendo only got a few. snake is far more releated to the playstation platform.

and on the other side, hideo himself begged sakurai to include snake in the next SSB. nintendo refused at first but because hideo is a good friend of sakurai he managed to include snake anyway.
Hisiru  +   850d ago
We have to understand that it's not Hideo Kojima's call/decision (lack of support for other platformrs), but yes, I do think it's wierd (snake in SSB but no metal gear for nintendo platforms).

@Hisiru metal gear has been on nintendo platforms, mgs twin snakes and the 3d remake on 3ds.
StanSmith  +   850d ago
How did cpayne93 get disagrees? lol what he stated was a fact!

Anyway, not only can I have Snake kick the crap out of Zelda, he can now whoop Cole! Can't Wait!
Ilovetheps4  +   850d ago
And cpayne, don't forget that Metal Gear and Snake's Revenge were on the NES. That was before the Playstation brand even originated.

@Iluvtheps3 AND the gameboy color, it had a mgs game too. I forgot about that one. Not sure why I got disagrees tho.
showtimefolks  +   850d ago
well drake will be there
cole will be there

and snake should be there and most likely 98% he is there also
ThatArtGuy  +   850d ago
David Hayter could be playing Big Boss and not Snake...
MaxXAttaxX  +   849d ago
It could be either one.
Big Boss is the original Snake(Naked Snake). Then there's Solid Snake.
GraveLord  +   851d ago
Obviously Drake will be in the game.
Cole was already semi-confirmed.

The real news here is that Snake might be in the game. He's also in SSBB....
h311rais3r  +   851d ago
If he is in it more than likely will be old snake.
Nimblest-Assassin  +   850d ago
I wonder how Snake n Drake will play (love how they rhyme)

Cole, I can kind of invision, but am interested to see how Snake n Drake will play

I will lol, if Drakes super is that where ever he goes, something blows up or is destroyed
sikbeta  +   851d ago
YES! Drake was obvious, Cole has to be in the game now that is in a fighting game and Snake being such an important character must be in the game, can't wait!
Cosmit  +   850d ago
Can't wait to be able to play as Cole! I love me some electricity!
WesMcLaren  +   850d ago
The fact that he mentions Nolan North could mean much more than just Drake.
belal  +   850d ago
So true, he is in almost every game !

BubloZX  +   850d ago
They should put Shadow the hedgehog in their game. If brawl gets Sonic the this game should get Shadow the hedgehog in theirs. Hey if they confirmed him he'd be the first black guy in the game lol. Maybe they could get Afro samurai in there too. That was one bad dude.
Whitefeather  +   850d ago
I'd rather they put Emmett from Starhawk.
BubloZX  +   849d ago
Oh yeah I haven't played Starhawk yet. How is that game? I was hoping to pick it up this week
MaxXAttaxX  +   849d ago
I doubt Shadow. But Knuckles would be cool.
CaptainSheep  +   851d ago
Can't wait to see how Cole is in this game! Gonna main him, Drake and Sackboy (if he's in).. :D
Rhezin  +   851d ago
going to be colonel radec, just like I was Jill from Res Evil in MVC2. She had a lot of ranged attacks as well.
Ethereal  +   851d ago
I am hoping for Old Snake! Either way this is good news but we all knew they would be in it.

what about raziel from soul reaver
Cryptcuzz  +   850d ago
You know, that would be an awesome third party guess character, since the original kinda really did start on Playstation.
SandwichHammock  +   850d ago
that's a pretty awesome drop dude. Bup.
mafiahajeri  +   851d ago
Snake has to be in I mean he was in super smash bros so its only right that he comes home to the PlayStation brand that started it all...
KwietStorm  +   850d ago
Snake was around long before PlayStation...
smashcrashbash  +   851d ago
Well Cole and Drake are understandable but not so sure about Snake. If they are going to use him I am assuming it will be Old Snake to go along with MGS4 since it was a PS3 exclusive. I would love to see how they would incorporate Snake's world into some other person's world. Maybe Kessler duking it out with the Beauty and the Beast ladies. Or if you want to get really crazy, Raiden being taught by Master Onion.If they add Cole, they could have Kessler fighting against Zeus with lighting. Or with Drake Sully and Zeke having a fist or gun battle in the background.
LarVanian  +   850d ago
I'm thinking a good set-piece would be the destruction of either Shambala or Ubar in the background while a match is occurring.
One set-piece we have seen is Hades fighting a Patapon army. It would be great to something similar to that like the Beast from inFamous 2 fighting a Chimeran horde!
smashcrashbash  +   850d ago
That would be interesting. I was thinking since there are no Chimera characters that it wouldn't work but then again there are no Patapon, Hot Shot Golf or Buzz characters either. So when you think about it you could even mix in backgrounds that don't have anything to do with the characters at all.

I like the destruction idea. How about either the Beast, a Colossus or Joseph Bertrand is rampaging through Shambala while the Drake team races to get away from it. Just imaging watching Elena, Sully and Chloe running, jumping and climbing while the creature rampages behind them smashing everything and the debris could come crashing down on the playing field at intervals.

But the Beast verses Chimera is good too. Watching him telekentically fling them away as they swarm all over him and try to bring him down.The fighting could shake the whole field as the shockwaves and debris from the damaged Chimera causes problems for the players

I doubt Snake will be in it. Killzone guy already has Snake's moveset from Brawl. Don't expect them to be creatively capable of making a whole new moveset.
Rynx  +   850d ago
Someone doesn't know fighting games.

READ: Jin - Devil Jin, Akuma - Oni, Sol Badguy - Order Sol.

Coming up with different moves and play styles between the Snake used in Brawl and Old Snake are going to be as easy as their aesthetics.

Heh. Nolan North? That could potentially confirm like, 40 different characters.
j-blaze  +   850d ago
except for characters like Snake, it's going to be an ugly roster i just dislike most of Sony first party game characters...i think Nintendo will have a nice laugh at this ripoff
Nimblest-Assassin  +   850d ago
There will be third party characters like people from Final Fantasy are a likely bet...

But whatever your tastes... I questioned nintendo when they added Olimar, GameandWatch, Wolf... who played exactly like Fox and Falco(except some minor differences)

The characters will be all unique... and lets cut the crap about "this is an SSB ripoff" They play differently...

The only similarities are the camera view and weapon pickups... thats it
Friendly_fiend  +   850d ago
i want otacon to be in the game, so he can yell SNAAAAAAAAKE!!!
DarkSniper  +   850d ago
What this shows is that Solid Snake is going to appear in a fighting game that features actual fighting characters. Meaning he will be up against the likes of many characters that can give him his fair run for his money in a brawl.

Nathan Drake, Cole McGrath, Kazuya Mishima, Sephiroth are just a few characters within the PlayStation's deep roster of characters that can bring the fight in more ways than the other game can.

PlayStation All Stars Battle Royale is shaping up to be the absolute most dominant fighting game on the market. Both hardcore and casual gamers can find a happy medium and enjoy this fantastic game exclusively on PlayStation®3 Home Entertainment Terminals.

Dark Sniper will be picking this game up on day 1. He hopes to find all of his fellow Sony Snipers on the PlayStation®Network enjoying yet another classic amongst classics.

i heard kevin butler be in it too
Ck1x  +   850d ago
I think Raiden from Metal Gear and Dante from DMC would be really good fits for this game. Or even if they could get Altair or Ezio would be pretty neat as well!
Fez  +   850d ago
Ninja Raiden would be a great character... probably a better choice than Snake just because the moveset could be radically different from the characters we've seen.
RockmanII7  +   850d ago
If it is anything like Brawl, Snake's gonna be top tier.
ElectricFlare  +   850d ago
Heres the Super Smash Bros clone! From the SO innovative minds back from Sony (sarcasm). No wonder Sony is going bankrupt, cant even come up with an original idea!

I know I'm going to get dislikes. Come at me bro! Respond and dislike all you want! I dont care XD
mynameisEvil  +   850d ago
Oh, little Wiitard, how you are correct. PSASBR is indeed an idea ripped from SSB, but even SSB was a rip-off of numerous games before it such as The Outfoxies (Namco, 1994). and other similar games.

With that said, is it really even a problem if Sony rips off an idea that a rip-off? In this industry, there's no such thing as a new idea. However, the execution of these ideas are what matters and, if PSASBR ends up being as good, if not better than SSB, who's losing here? Not Nintendo, since SSBB isn't selling much four years later. Not Sony since people will be buying this. Not gamers because we'll then have another game that plays well and is worth our money.
Cryptcuzz  +   850d ago
Well said man, I could not have said it any better myself.
mynameisEvil  +   850d ago
Why, thank you! Sometimes, I wonder why I never get bubbled up.

Eamon  +   850d ago
I have a feeling we won't be seeing Snake in this game. I'm not sure Nintendo would be pleased to see Snake in another brawling game. Since Kojima pushed hard for Snake to be included, Nintendo could have made a contract so that Snake can only appear in a Super Smash Bros game and not any other brawling game.
ThatArtGuy  +   850d ago
Or... Nintendo might not have considered Snake being in any other game and didn't include such a clause.

Like I said before, David Hayter could be voicing Big Boss.
MacUser1986  +   850d ago
I hope Sir Daniel Fortesque from Medievil is in the game.
banjadude  +   850d ago
Drake and Cole isn't surprising, but I'm still glad if they make it. Snake is sort of a surprise.
insomnium2  +   850d ago
Am I the only PS-guy here who has no interest in this game whatsoever? Agree if yes and disagree if no.
