The title of this post is actually kind of misleading … umm, in a way. You see, three new characters were announced for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale at Comic-Con today, but two of them actually work as a pair.
First revealed (and seen in the trailer above) was Cole McGrath from inFAMOUS. He’ll be dishing out his patented electric moves, and because he’s quite the acrobat, we can probably expect some major aerial offense. It’s a good thing Cole got some fighting game practice in Street Fighter X Tekken!
The duo I was talking about at the beginning of this post is none other than Jak and Daxter from, you guessed it, Jak and Daxter. The characters will work together as a team, using weapons from throughout the series, and they will be controlled by one player. I’m getting a real Ice Climbers from Smash Bros. vibe here.
PlayStation All-Stars is shaping up to feature an offbeat cast of characters, and it’s going to be really fun seeing heroes and villains from different universes pummeling each other. It’s going to be weird, no doubt, but that’s just part of the magic of crossover fighters.
