All Star Battle Royale on PS3 needs these characters

By Alan Ng - Apr 5, 2012

Remember that rumored Super Smash Bros style game that Sony is alleged to be working on? Well following on from those whispers in November last year, we now have some additional information on that game, including a possible title for the game.

Back in November we told that the game was currently codenamed ‘Title Fight’ and that it is thought to be in development by SuperBot Entertainment. An image of Sweet Tooth has apparently already been leaked, as well as further information that other Sony based characters Nathan Drake and Parappa The Rapper will be involved as well.

Now though, it has been revealed this week that Sony may be stepping up with their plans to finalize a proper retail name for the game. A survey has been discovered and contained on this survey are the words ‘PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale’. Questions posed include ‘how well the name fits this game’ and also, ‘what are your feelings’ towards the name.

There’s no sign of this survey having the official seal of approval from Sony, but bizarrely there seems to be an image of an Xbox 360 controller at the top, leading a lot of you to call fake on this one. Considering the strong rumors last year though, we have a feeling that the game is definitely on the way and it will end up being one of Sony’s key announcements of E3 2012 – we won’t be seeing any new hardware after all.

With so many characters attached to the Sony brand, there is obviously amazing potential for this game to do well. The thought of Nathan Drake and Crash Bandicoot slugging it out is pretty exciting, and if Sony manage to get some third-party names in there as well, such as a few Tekken characters that would be even better. Tekken was originally a PlayStation franchise don’t forget. Getting some Square-Enix characters on board though may prove to be a more difficult task, seeing as Square-Enix already have a fighting franchise out called Dissidia.

How does the name sound to you? We would have liked to see something more unique, but we can live with All Star Battle Royale if that ends up the final name. Let us know which characters you would like to appear in the game, to secure your purchase. If we were to put up an initial list – we would go for: Crash Bandicoot, Paul Phoenix, Cloud, Sub Zero, Nathan Drake, Duke Nukem, Lara Croft, Solid Snake, Kratos and Rayman! Can you top or add to that list?
