Sony Tease Video "The Arrival"

Sony has released a second mysterious video following the one shared a few days ago, known as "The Reload".

The story is too old to be commented.

OK, these definitely have to do with Battle Royale.

First one features Cole from inFAMOUS and this one features Drake from Uncharted.

Would be cool if there were some live action fight sequences in the full commercial instead of everyone just standing around...not that the first Michael commercial was bad or anything.

Someone needs to decipher the message on the typewriter!!!

-Alpha1372d ago (Edited 1372d ago )

Typewriter:

"DEAR COPERNICUS (That's Captain Qwark from R&C) WE HAVE RECEIVED YOUR LETTER AND REGRET TO INFORM YOU CAPTAIN"

Also, the first teaser had DMC and Ape Escape references. This one references Uncharted, and R&C so far.

Has to be for All Stars. They can both advertise Michael 2 (PS3 commercial) and the commercial for All Stars at the same time. This game needs to have a strong advertising campaign as it is Sony's biggest title for this Christmas, and a damn good one at that

Hold on a second. How do you guys know what the typewriter has written on it? It's just a bunch of symbols. How do you know what they mean? Is it some type of real language?

FunAndGun1372d ago

Damn Alpha, you are on top of things!!

NICE!

"TimeEffect and Skidd of Neogaf, have confirmed that the text on the typewriter is actually the Lombax language from Ratchet and Clank, not Jak and Daxter. They also have a full translation of what was shown"

it reads “Dear Copernicus, (Copernicus L. Qwark?)
We have received your letter and regret to inform you captai-"

"And it’s Captain Qwark’s rejection letter from the roster! How attentive of Superbot! Thanks to the guys at Neogaf for the translation!"

-Alpha1372d ago (Edited 1372d ago )

^ It's Lombax font from Ratchet and Clank

And the font in the license plate is from Jak and Daxter

The letter is a rejection notice to Qwark lol.

gaffyh1372d ago

Yep, has to be for All-Stars

Blastoise1372d ago

Nice work -Alpha. Intelligent Bubble for ya.

I think it is All-stars, I'm looking forward to more ads. Maybe each character will appear and check in with the receptionist lol.

All-stars Beta is a blast by the way

Blastoise1372d ago

Also, check out the reflection on the car at about 19 seconds in. If you pause at the right time you can see the guys got a shotgun. Gotta be Drake :)

360ICE1372d ago (Edited 1372d ago )

The number plate on the car reads "MORGAN!" in precursor writing (Jak & Daxter). Little idea who Morgan would be.

Ah, it's one of Naughty Dog's old dogs.

mt1372d ago

alpha I wish there is geek bubble, I would so give that to you, but there is less than that there is intelligent bubble

Yes the type writer! As soon as I saw that I searched to see if it had been decoded yet. Couldnt find anything but this is Defiantly PSASBR. Hope there is a live action fight club video.

Axecution1372d ago

If you look at the yellow text on the girl's nametag on the desk (actually, it's in the thumbnail) it says Saru Get You, which is the name of the Ape Escape TV show in Japan >.>

GraveLord1372d ago

Live action fight sequences? yeah....no. That would be really lame.

Mykky1372d ago

First one features cole from inFAMOUS, "Sara! Get You!" From Ape Escape and the gun from MGS Zeroes trailer.
Second one features the "Dear Copernicus" thing which is Captain Quark from Ratchet and Clank. Symbol from Uncharted and the sign of the back of the car which is from Jak and Dexter.

This means Snake from Ground Zeroes, Ratchet and Clank, and Ape Escape is confirmed for All Stars Battle Royale.

Ace_Pheonix1372d ago

It's a Scorpion. I don't see how it being in Ground Zeroes is all that significant for this trailer. They are a very common submachine gun. Beyond everything I could want for in All Stars is for Big Boss to be the end boss, and be playable after beating him, but I really feel like having a Scorpion in a trailer is really grasping at straws. And we aren't even 100% sure these teasers will even relate to All Stars. Michael didn't promote any one game.

gintoki7771371d ago

the setting looks similar to mgs4 European level where you sneak through the city.

RmanX10001372d ago

Im pretty sure this is related to Battle Royale... Other than that im stumped...

Relientk771372d ago (Edited 1372d ago )

Ok this has to be PS All-Stars related,

we got font from Ratchet & Clank on the type writer

and then if you pause at 0:13 and then 0:18, 0:19 slowly, you can see jeans, a belt, his white shirt, his brown overshirt, gun holster, and his dark hair, this is clearly Nathan Drake (look at the Uncharted 2 box art).

LarVanian1372d ago

If you pause at 0:10 you can see that the license plate has the symbols of a precursor orb from Jak & Daxter. Nice little detail.

-Alpha1372d ago (Edited 1372d ago )

It says MORGAN in Precursor language:

Morgan: http://jakanddaxter.wikia.c...

Relientk771372d ago (Edited 1372d ago )

Nice Alpha you are all over this

edit @ below: yea, Alpha definitely agree, I love these viral videos as advertising, very clever and awesome videos, very well put together.

-Alpha1372d ago (Edited 1372d ago )

^ I got the Morgan story from GAF, but I'm the one who translated the R&C one on there ;)

This viral advertising is so great, Michael has 11 Million views, and as a PlayStation fan, it's such great fan service, but even regular fans love Long. Live. Play. Let's hope Sony cranks this up for Christmas

Adva1372d ago

IS this POSSIBLY going to reveal the final boss? All characters are coming back to the tavern to face off against him/her?

Knight_Crawler1372d ago

Would be awesome if the final boss is a red ringed 360 :)

Tomonobu Itagaki1372d ago

It would be fun if Microsoft agreed to let one of their characters as the final boss for Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale, like Master Chief or Marcus Fenix.

It's very unlikely, but it would be a nice move.
