PlayStation All-Stars Gets inFAMOUS With Evil Cole

Another hot summer is winding down as we close in on the release of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, and fans have been asking whether we still have more reveals in store for everyone. Well, we’re not done yet!

Today, the PlayStation All-Stars team attended the GameStop Managers Show in San Antonio, TX, an annual event where the retailer gets to check out the industry’s most anticipated video game titles. During the expo’s keynote we confirmed our latest addition to PlayStation All-Stars’ roster — Evil Cole from Sucker Punch’s inFAMOUS series! (PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, PS3)

He does, at least, look to have different moves anyway.

On the bright side this pretty much confirms Raiden, Nariko and Sir Daniel. All the revealed characters where in the big leak a few months ago, and I'm pretty sure it's not the full roster yet, Paul Gale said there where at least two more females so there are still surprises to be revealed! :)
typikal82  +   1256d ago
Nariko and Kai probably

I would hope for Sasha or one of the infamous 2 girls

Kinda disappointed... if all those characters who leaked are the final roster

Also a bit sad that the game is double dipping with evil cole. A thing I hated with SSB... at least he has very different moves... but I wish they got some one from a different IP

This choice was theirs... they could have had Wander or some one else from sony first party

And really? EVIL COLE MCGRATH? Kinda seems awkward to say... his level 3 looks cool though

It'd be a travesty if they include 2 versions of Cole and no Crash Bandicoot.

I would run laps around the earth if they put Sora in the game and make his supers one of his forms from kh2 or like summon some Disney characters to FSU

Sony needs to get someone else to do their trailers for this game because they are doing a poor job of making this game look great :/.

What a waste of a character...all they had to do is give Good cole an alt skin and change the ice attacks to fire. Like when he does his LV2 Ice attack just turn it into fire or add some fire effects to the LV 3 Super Tornado attack

I would of prefered another first party character then Evil Cole....jeez come on Super Bot.

Exactly having him as an alternative skin would of been much better then putting him in as a new character, adding some fire effects to the move set would of been quicker then wasting time on another version of the same character. I'm really disapointed in this, unlike New Dante, Metal Gear Solid Rising Raiden and possibiley if the rumors are true Lightning from Final Fantasy they DID have control over this.

I have to say that I'm still not very pleased with the roster, even so near the game's official release. They've picked some characters that make sense like Kratos and Radec, but then there's other choices that are just plain lost on me. Like Etnad and 2 Coles. 1 would have been enough. I would have excepted Kessler though.

I'm still looking for Wander or Ico.

It started off had Kratos, Prappa the Rapper and Sly then over time it just took a massive fall.

Instead of releasing all the info that would of gotten people really excited for this game to the point where they would of hit the roof and count the days to it's release like adding Cloud, Crash, Spyro for example they didn't...they had Nathan Drake and Big Daddy which were already leaked and didn't realse any info on new modes, minions or items that will be in the game. Realsing info slowly sounded like a cool idea but it's just been ruined by leaks and horrible promotional decisions like adding New Dante form the new DmC game and Raiden/Lightning if like the guy has said above, the rumors are true. Hell why don't they add a SSB type mode aswell with health bars, just to give people the choice on how to play the game

Why didn't they just add normal cole and let him transform into evil cole or good cole like Zelda/Shiek in SSB

Im going to guess that the infamous 2 costumes will be the alt costumes for cole

Whos etnad?

The roster so far

Fat Princess
Sweet Tooth
Big Daddy
Jak N Daxter
Rachet N Clank
Evil Cole

So far the leak is looking true, so fortesque, Nariko and Raiden are essentially confirmed as well

The said the final rooster will be 20+

So there could be more... or this is it
user7792788  +   1256d ago
@Lord_Sloth Funny how you say 2 Coles is enough then you say you would have expected Kessler? LOL
Lord_Sloth  +   1256d ago
I wouldn't have any issues with Raiden personally since I like Raiden but they need Snake in there too. I'd say MGS is worth 2 slots with very different styles.

As for Lightning...She would make sense as an FF rep but Sony actually published FFVII and let's face it, Cloud is the most known FF character around.

I like the idea of having a basic Cole and then having him transform between good or evil like Shiek did.

Hey Mike can you and Omega SHUT THE FVCK UP! seriously my god are your really b1tching about a character reveal are you kidding me here? Who cares if they wanted to add evil Cole how is that a bad thing especially when his move sets are different. So do the world a favor and keep your thoughts to yourself cause they are god damn retarded. It's their game they can do what they want with it and add who they want and you are going to either quite your b1tching and buy it or you'll still quite and let people who actually want to get it and enjoy their roster reveal.

ZIB  +   1256d ago
Really Mike your calling me the troll? You who has the audacity to moan like a self entitled b1tch because a developer added a character to their fighting games.

It's not even about a conflict of opinions as its you being as already stated a self entitled b1tch because Superbot decided to make Evil Cole into an actual character with a new set of moves rather than just an alt skin for good guy Cole. If anything your comment brims of irony but you know if I have to grow up how about you join me. I'm sure you could use the added testorane to combat the irregular high levels of estrogen you have.

And to Omega actually this isn't dup account I've been coming to this site for a while but never joined but Mike's incredible b1tching skills made me want to join.

lol Mike telling anyone to get a life is so ironic, the dude lives on n4g pressing f5 and declaring every game is shit because its not tailor made for him.
Reverent  +   1256d ago
So it's okay for SSB to have 2 Links who have the exact same move sets with slight alterations (Toon Link shoots fire arrows instead of regular arrows for example), but it's not okay to have 2 Coles that actually have completely different moves and supers? Whatever man.
Sono421  +   1255d ago
Just to let you know toon link and link have completely different playstyles, Link was more slow but strong and toon link was more agile but weaker, although I do agree they had the same movesets they aren't as alike as you make them seem to be, I love playing with Toon Link but hate playing with regular Link.
NickTheHitman  +   1256d ago
Bro. No offense. But you complain soooooooo much. A skin is one thing. But if ur gonna give fire effects why not just add another character. And thats what they did. If you can make a better game then go ahead and do it. Super Bot is trying there best. Its not like adding another character is going to hurt the game in any way. And they haven't even announced all the characters yet. Plus the opportunities for DLC. So just relaxx.
RmanX1000  +   1256d ago
Im not an inFAMOUS fan, dont own a PS3, but this seems like wasted potential. Im not saying its a stupid character, but why not Nathan Hale? This game ned more Resistance love. The Hedgehog Grenade aint cuttin it :P
PersonaCat  +   1256d ago
Unless its Nathan from the last 15 minutes of R2, I think he'd be a pretty terrible character lol :p End game Nathan would be a freaking beast though :o
srcBFMVBMTH  +   1256d ago
Agreed. The dude can make you explode by just pointing his hands at you!!!!!!! That was freakin awesome! That could be his super also ('o')
Whitefeather  +   1256d ago
Even though he has a different move set I still feel like it's a waste. It's not that it makes it two characters from the same franchise, I'm fine with that really I am one who is hoping for both Old Snake and Raiden but it's the same guy. I've played both games and know he is totally different in the way he acts but either way it's Cole McGrath. If can live with "Dante" being in, I can live with Evil Cole.
Hicken  +   1256d ago
Oh, God... if he'd just been an alternate skin, people would be complaining. But since he's a complete character, they'll complain about that, instead.

Who cares? It's gonna have a big roster; Good and Evil Cole are VERY different individuals, so it's no surprise he's more than just a reskin.
Reverent  +   1256d ago
Freakin' Exactly^
smashcrashbash  +   1256d ago
Nah. If SSB can have two Marios and three Links and get away with it why can't we let Evil Cole slide? He isn't a waste if he has different attacks and powers. He would be a waste if he was exactly the same.He, like,Dante, is a single character in a big roster. Why do people attack every individual character with such venom and scorn?
#6 (Edited 1256d ago ) | Agree(13) | Disagree(4) | Report | Reply
-Omega  +   1256d ago
But the fact is people complained about the two Marios and three links in SSB. People even complained about some characters having the same attacks like Fox, Wolf and Falco for example

Wouldn't you learn from a developers mistake with your new game. Despite evil Cole have some differn't moves they could of done it as an alt skin to good Cole, change the ice animations to fire ones and that would of been better.

As I said above unlike the Dante situation they had control over this...he was a first party character. Wouldn't you of wanted a better character from the playstaiton line up then another Cole. It's like you wouldn't want better for this game, like everyone who criticizes it automaticaly hates the game.

smashcrashbash  +   1256d ago
Like I said in my post they got away with it. If they didn't they would have taken them out of the roster or people would have boycotted the game. I always listen to people shout 'I complained' and yet they and everyone else still buy the game. You don't complain and then hand your money over to the person and increase their profits and say 'I complained' you demand that they don't do it and refuse to buy it until they do it.

My point is why should we be unforgiving towards Evil Cole especially since he has different powers and different super moves then Good Cole. His electric cable gives him a completely different advantage for climbing walls and getting a different angle.If he played exactly the same like Fox, Wolf and Falco then I would say he is a waste but his powers and moves are different then Good Cole's.

I don't see him as a waste and like I have told you before you are free to your opinion. I however don't see a character that gives a different strategy of moves as a waste no less then I think of Dante or Big Daddy. It is not like it is just a new skin with nothing else and no advantages. People accepted Toon Link/Link and Young Link, Mario/Dr Mario, Fox, Wolf and Falco, so why give Evil Cole, a single 'copy' of a character, grief? Do you think you are better then the people who played SSB and deserve better? Why? What makes you so special? You can complain and critize all you like. I am not stopping you. I just disagree that's all

Nimblest-Assassin  +   1256d ago
No the reason people complained is the fact how similar the characters played... Link from wind waker has a different arsenal than Twilight Princess link.... but in SSB they had the same gear

Wolf, Falco and Fox were all the same, except for slight differences

Ness and Lucas were the same and had slight differences

People complained that they were not unique... not about their inclusion

In essence... those characters should have been costumes, as their was no difference in the way they played

However evil cole plays differently than good cole, and is not simply good cole with red lighting

The characters might look the same, but they play very differently... were as in Brawl the characters looked different, but played the same

jeez there's no pleasing some people. So negative <_<
Did they set a specific amount of character slots? Is there like 30 characters max that adding a second Cole (Evil) that is basically an entire different person from good Cole would make people b*tch endlessly. THERE ISN'T A SET NUMBER OF SLOTS. Please relax. There's more characters to come.

I feel that only having Good cole in the game would be a misrepresentation of the character. Having both is alright to me. He looks like he will be a BEAST in the game though.

Anyways keep up the good work superbot don't let the critics, deter you from you artistic vision.

PersonaCat  +   1256d ago
I do think it's a waste of slot to put him in since we already have Cole, but he definitely doesn't belong as an alternative suit. Changing the color of his attacks would have just made people bitch that Superbot was lazy. Evil Cole does not play the same as Hero Cole, anyone who plays the game knows that. I think he should have been dlc since there are only so many character slots left.
prototypeknuckles  +   1256d ago
I love infamous and Cole but WTF , I said it before and ill say it again this roster is making me less hyped for the game and ive waited for it ever since the ps1 era, though I got to admit evil Cole may be a main that lvl3 super is just badass

MaideninBlack  +   1256d ago
So people are okay with Jin/Devil Jin, Orge/True Orge, Ryu/Evil Ryu, Hayate/Ein, but Superbot gets burned at the stake for doing the same thing other fighters have been getting away with for ages?

I think with all the backlog of characters Sony has up its sleeve, fans were expecting a variety. But, I'm not disappointed with Evil Cole's inclusion. His moveset looks fun to use.
kanetheking  +   1256d ago
see like you said backlog, these games are a great promotion for other games so why would sony use something there never going to bring back again.
BitbyDeath  +   1256d ago
Very true, MK is quite well known for it too
Scorpian/SubZero/Noob Saibot/Rain (probably missing some ninjas)

I hope we have a lot more announcements to go.
JohnApocalypse  +   1256d ago
I would prefer to have a Vampire Cole instead
CaitSith  +   1256d ago
That was expected. Which means Raiden, Nariko, and Sir Dan from the leaks are 100% credible. Can't wait who the Final Fantasy character is, though. =)
FadedWolf13  +   1256d ago
eh doesn't matter to me keep em coming the more characters the better as long as they all differ in moves and such
dmixwell  +   1256d ago
please add Characters from playstation classics such as Breath of fire 3 (Rei & ryu) ....
Relientk77  +   1256d ago
Agree we need some RPG/JRPG characters already seriously
Parappa  +   1256d ago
So they'll likely add in Raiden over Snake...That's right, they went in and put 2 of the same characters in for a franchise and then put the worst character in the Metal Gear universe in over Snake (according to the leak).
GribbleGrunger  +   1256d ago
The final line up will be 'ample' but not 'enough'. That will be the balance they try to strike. More characters, minions and backdrops will be sold as DLC in the following months and providing they are reasonably priced and offer characters that everyone loves, I'm totally at ease with that strategy.

Gamers must really understand that support can only grow if the profits grow equally. For every DLC that sold on LBP, more content was financed. We have to benefit Sony in order for them to benefit us. That's business.

I just can't wait to see how technicall this game is. To me Dante looks to have too many moves. He seems like an annoying character to play against. Although Cole might give him a run for his money. I'm not making any judgment on this game until I actually play it. I am still confused about why some multiplat characters are on there. Didn't bioshock start on 360? I believe so. I want to know how is he a PS allstar. Answer developers!!!!
Sizzon  +   1256d ago
Evil Cole looks great, he has a different move set compared to Good Cole.

But I really wonder who the Resistance rep will be, Infected Nathan Hale would be cool.
