PS All-Stars: strategy videos and roster rumors

by: Jeremy -
Sony and SuperBot have checked in again with strategy videos for the upcoming PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. This time, gamers get a chance to look at the abilities of Fat Princess and Sly Cooper.  In just a few short minutes, members of the development team will run you through the moves and strengths of these characters.

Also, with the beta testing of the game currently underway on the PlayStation Network, details and information regarding the rest of the game’s roster have slowly been leaking out into the world. While I would normally recommend taking these leaks with a grain of salt, Sony seems to be subtly confirming them with banners and images on their official page.

The 100%, confirmed roster of the game (thus far) includes:
  • Big Daddy (BioShock)
  • Cole McGrath (inFAMOUS series)
  • Colonel Radec (KillZone series)
  • Fat Princess (Fat Princess)
  • Heihachi Mishima (Tekken series)
  • Jak & Daxter (Jak & Daxter series)
  • Kratos (God of War series)
  • Nathan Drake (Uncharted series)
  • Parappa the Rapper (Parappa the Rapper series)
  • Sly Cooper (Sly Cooper series)
  • Sweet Tooth (Twisted Metal series)
  • Toro Inoue (Sony of Japan mascot)
Additions rumored to be coming officially thanks to the above-mentioned leaks include:
  • Sackboy (LittleBigPlanet series)
  • Raiden (Metal Gear Solid series)
  • Nariko (Heavenly Sword)
  • Spike (Ape Escape series)
  • Dante (Devil May Cry series)
  • Sir Daniel Fortesque (MediEvil)
  • Ratchet (Ratchet & Clank series)
  • Evil Cole (inFAMOUS)
Those additions would bring the roster to a total of 20 characters; surely more are planned... right? There are some classic Sony characters that I though would make great additions to the game considering their iconic contributions to the PlayStation brand. Personally, I think it would make a lot of sense to add the following to the game:
  • Lara Croft (Tomb Raider series)
  • Kevin Butler
  • King of the Cosmos (Katamari Damacy series)
  • Crash Bandicoot (Crash Bandicoot series)
  • Sephiroth (Final Fantasy VII)
Who else would you like to see added to the game? Let us know in the comment section below.
