New characters for Sony's 'Battle Royale' at Comic-Con

Posted by Mike Luttrell

The teases keep heating up for Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale.

The big brawl that will pit all your favorite Sony characters together in a crazy, no-holds-barred party just keeps getting bigger and bigger.

Jak from Jak & Daxter and Cole McGrath from Infamous are the latest additions to the cast, as announced at Comic-Con. PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale is due out on the PS3 and the PlayStation Vita.

"Players familiar with Jak and Daxter’s arsenal will immediately recognize some of the weaponry utilized in PlayStation All-Stars including the Blaster, Needle Lazer, Gyro Burster, and Mass Inverter," while with Cole:

"Players can command both his electrokinesis and cryokinesis, using these powers to assault opponents from a safe distance or propel himself towards the action," Sony said in a PlayStation Blog post.

Super Smash Bros is a runaway success franchise for Nintendo. It would be crazy to think that anyone else could create such a fanatic following.

After all, the mascots of Nintendo have more star power than any PlayStation or Xbox icon could have, simply because they have been around longer.

Nevertheless, there is no disputing that PlayStation fanboys are more than ardent enough to make a Sony character fight fest a resounding success.

The game is due out later this year.
