A senior level designer at SuperBot (rumored to be working on Sony's Smash Bros. "competitor") has posted images and messages to his Twitter account that all but confirm the project.
This is still a ball of confusion. Excited and confused! EDIT: Dear Sony, I don't care if there is Move support but for the love of god, son't make this a move mini waggle fighter. This is your chance to really blow us a away.
Sweet Tooth looks so damn awesome, Im going to main him
This is gonna be awesome! Sony's got a huge stable of first party studios all with iconic game characters just waiting to be released on one game to fight each other. I'll definitely be picking this up!!! Imagine Kratos vs. Sackboy!! hahaha I used to play Smash Bros all the time on my buddy's N64. A Sony-branded Smash Bros. game would kick ass!!
i could already envision the intro to the game: a man in a dark hallway quietly paces himself down a poorly lit corridor which opens up into a room wit very little lighting. he continues to creep along until he sees a shiny blue treasure glistening on top of a podium. he goes to picks up the treasure when all of a sudden the entire room is lit up by the torches along the walls. the man is suddenly visible and we learn that its Eddie Raja who suddenly turns around a to see a smiling Sulley flicking a lighter up and down. all of a sudden Drake snatches the treasure off of the podium, which then skyrockets both him and Raja to a higher arena like collesium. We see ropes from above shoot down. 14 Helghast lands and Raja and Drake start taking them out one by one. As they fight the Helghast and each other, the treasure is hit out of Drakes hand by a flying arrow. Twing Twang sits high in a far tree and waves coyly at them. Drake continues to scramble for the treasure when it all of a sudden stops rolling as if hitting something invisible. The invisible wall materializes into Radecs foot. He picks up the blue treasure nods and takes off in a jetpack. Rico and Sevchinko intercepts him in midair, hitting the treasure out of his hand. The treasure now suspended in midair, is about to be grabbed by Sev until a laserwhip grabs it. The lasership powered by Ratchets gun, now reels in the blue treasure, which then another metal chain grabs his whip. Clank now latches himself on to Ratchets back and transforms into a powerful rotor to help him reel it in from Narikos grasp. Nariko launches a blade at Ratchet and Ratchet fires a powerful shot at her. Knocking them both down. Remaining Helghast all rush for the treasure until an Ionic Storm eradicates all of em. A smiling Cole McGrath picks up the treasure and tries to absorb it and faints.... The stadium shakes and 4 earth shaking Colossi emerge from the grounds. Drake, Cole, Nariko, Ratchet and Raja all on the ground just starting to wake are mortified by the sudden sight of these beasts. as the beasts approach them, the shadow of a single leg can be seen standing over Drake. He scoffs, then chuckles as the camera pans up from the back of Kratos' legs up to his head as he slowly unsheaths his blades from his back while facing the Colossi.... Sony Smash Brothers end intro
OMG! OMG! OMG! So awesome!
They better have Jak as a character, I love me some Jak.
@UnSelf "i could already envision the intro to the game:" Me too. "TO MICHAEL!" http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Why do they have to compete? They're in two completely different systems. [on topic] I hope this isn't a Move game.
^ That's what I really fear. That it isn't some mega game, but some Move game like PlayStation Move Heroes Cautiously optimistic, but I can't help but go overboard at the thought
he did say R2 is some special attack...move has no R2 button
I hope it does support the move, even dual moves. You know good and well that Sony wouldn't remove classic controls from a game like this though. They have always gave us the option with the games that would allow for it easily. A fighting game is one of those types of games. It was born on the classic controller and I just don't see Sony leaving the non-move owners out (that's a lot of potential sales) by making it move only.
i would love to see nariko versus kratos im assuming only sony first party characters are gonna be in it my other concern is will it be a 3d game or 2d platform like smash brothers
"im assuming only sony first party characters are gonna be in it" Well you never know, they could get a few MP characters here and there. Maybe they could get Lara Croft since she used to be a Sony first part character or maybe Gordon Freeman with Sonys new relationship with Valve.
snake will make an appearance I'm sure. maybe one of the assassin creeds dudes. who knows. I'm sure Sony won't limit themselves to 1st party characters even though there's more than enough to fill roster
What all the others said PLUS SONY still owns all the rights to Heavenly Sword, so if they want to, Nariko and Kai wouldn't be a problem at all.
nah. they can easily add third party guest characters like snake (hell, nintendo did it !)
@ turgore yes turgore nintendo did it but it took 3 games to do it and get the permission to do it is not enough just wanting to add it, they have to get permission from third party licensed characters
snake should be there :D
Who will be able to beat him in CQC?
@Berserk liquid will
Dear Sony Please do not make this game a casual game like Smash Bros. I want to see sweet tooth vs Kratos and not Sack Boy vs Rachet. I would also like some blood and gore. Kind regards Your #1 fan
LOOOOOL Smash Bros. a casual game? Go and fight a tournament level player then come back. I wonder when Sony will reveal this? THey have a reveal for JUMP Festa supposedly so no doubt there I'd assume.
that game would e cooooorny yuck lae ur a crappy gamer lol
lol since when was smash bros casual? I know some cs players going on 10 years that picked up a wii strictly for smash bros.
The charm of a smash bros type game is completely lost on Micro_Sony. I hope sony would boast play, create share for this game too.
I think it's safe to say as long as this is not a move only title we could really have something special. Kratos vs sack boy lol Killzone helgast Killzone 3 that skinny guy I want to beat him up Nate Kratos Sackboy Snake or big boss Character from yakuza Sly Jak Ratchet The guy from shadow of the closouses If done right Sony could actually make some extremely special. And how about some characters from GTA which were first exclusives on ps2. And instead of just Sony how about some other 3rd party characters either on disk or as dlc who really helped the growing process of playstation brand. Few characters Rockstar games Other than that can not wait till either GDC or most likely E3. Let me ask you guys something since this is a fighting game would you rather be it rated M and have a lot of gore or more rated T? I rather have rather M and get some blood like mortal kombat. If not than Sony should do some along with line of MVP art style Jak hd collection Last guardian Launch of ps vita Possibly ratchet hd collection for fall 2012 Twisted metal Starhawk So if they add few more to that list I will be happy alo with manyother gamers
I think many are wondering "how sackboy will fight?" I would like him to have a kirby-like ability
Ares90 His moves could be creation based. like pop it attacks, turning the level itself against you
3rd party character..... Cloud and Sephiroth???!?!?!?!?!
7.New Sony Playstation commercial vaguely foreshadowing our soon to be announced title – http://www.youtube.com/watc... This tweet pretty much confirms it!! This youtube vid is for the Michael long live play. So it represents a place where all of sonys characters get together =DDD
the full version of that has been out for a while http://www.youtube.com/watc...
It got lot to live upto if they want a good clone of smash bros with sony characters.
Can't wait. Please don't be a disappointment like Socom 4 was.
I not hyped for this game for some reason.
all im thinking about is ratchet and clank versus jak and daxter, i remember these games first came out around the same time period with posters and advertisements everywhere
Yay! 'nuff said.
Character: Kevin Butler Level: Back of a Colossi moving in real time Item: Sharpshooter (Equivelant to Super Smash Scope)
Character: Crash Bandicoot Level: Rail grinding like in Ratchet and Clank. Item: Kevin Butler's Firework Collection.
I wouldn't mind.. Character: Kratos Level: Mount Olympus..or on the back of a titan or something. Item: The weapons in GOW3. Can't wait for this! hopefully they do it right and make it as fun as Super smash bros.
Character: Ostrava or Biorr or the main Knight on the cover from Demon Souls Level: World 3-2 from Demon Souls Item: Perhaps have access to some iconic weapons from the game, like Large Sword of Moonlight, or North Regalia/Blueblood sword, aside the characters main weapons of course. Would love if Demon Souls was apart of this game. The style of the characters and weapons match perfectly for a fighting game.
Character: Lightning Level:Orphans Cradle Item:Thundaga bomb
Character: Kat, from Gravity Daze. Level: The train in UC2, while moving Item: Bullseye, from Resistance. And I'd like to see a fight between Nathan Drake and Sweettooth.
I am happy that this game is basically confirmed though. I was skeptical if this game actually existed. Picture 3 is my favorite cuz I have no idea what it is lol I guess we can say Sweet Tooth is in the game now (from the 2nd pic)
1st image could possibly be Nariko too.
Oh that is true. I was thinking Lara Croft from Tomb Raider lol
Exactly my thoughts!
Both of them have great boobies.
if you look at the text in the 3rd pic, it also mentions kratos
yeah Sweet Tooth and Kratos.. probably dueling it out and it was soo epic that the rendering effed up haha
I lost brain cells to that past pic, but I'll lose em again cuz it was awesome.
I wonder if any third party characters will be in this game. I'd love to see Cloud Strife, Squall or Any Final Fantasy Lead and Snake from MGS which respite third party, have really helped shape the playstation brand since the PS1 days.
Please let this be true, I'd buy it without even thinking about it!
Please actually be good
Ya. That's definite confirmation.
Also, I wouldn’t mind an RPG mashup from franchise characters, but that is also a 10 year old wish. haha
Super Mario RPG is great, and so is Kingdom Hearts. So this is definitely a good idea. I would be for this RPG mashup as well.
Thanks for the image of Sweet Tooth's gut.
will it be sony exclusive character's only? i would like to see Ezio,Snake,Dante etc.. this should be fun
What? You guys don't want the goddamn batman in the game? Kids these days...
dont forget the Joker. Why so forgetful :D
Batman and joker from the arkham games lore though.
Please be real, please be good and please have Sir Dan, Carmelita Fox, Ashlien, Spyro, Crash Bandicoot and Coco as playable characters.
Boy i hate rumors. It leaves you hoping for it to come true then all of a sudden, you'll get a slap in the face :(
I know that why i make sure never to get my hopes up over any rumors
Character Roster: -Everyone in the "For Michael" commercial. -et al. One can hope... :D
I really want them to licence Duke Nukem for this game (shouldn't be too expensive right now after DNF bombed...)
Wow. This is actually happening. The Sony fan inside of me is doing back flips right now. Above everything, this game has to be good. If this game turns out to be a heaping pile of garbage, it would be pretty damn embarrassing. With that said, I hope it turns out great. They have a good number of first and third party characters that would be good to see. Cloud would be awesome.
The eighth tweet on the list there said that this commercial was foreshadowing their game, and it linked to the for Micheal commercial. So if that's true, then third party characters are a given, because that trailer had Ezio, Snake, Lightning, and etc. I hope this a true hardcore fighter and not some stupid move game like Playstation Move Heroes. Very, Very intrigued.
I'd rather have any other FF character then Lightning....oh and maybe Cloud, Clouds just over used these days. Maybe Squall or Zidane
