Sony may be close to announcing a Super Smash Bros-esque ensemble fighter for PS3, according to reports culled from inside sources and wayward tweets. The game, codenamed Title Fight, is rumored be in development by SuperBot Entertainment and star the likes of Twisted Metal's Sweet Tooth, God of War's Kratos, Uncharted's Nathan Drake, Sly Cooper, and Jak and Daxter.

Early details of the unconfirmed game first popped up on the Paul Gale Network site at the beginning of November. According to Gale's contacts, the fighter will play much like Nintendo's Super Smash Bros series in that it will pit a collection of Sony's most famous mascots against each other amidst interactive environments inspired by each character's home franchise, such as the 'Sandover Village' from the Jak & Daxter. Other PS3 celebrities rumored to be making an appearance are Parappa the Rappa, Fat Princess, and Killzone's Colonel Mael Radec.

In his most recent update this weekend, Gale confirmed the game is indeed being coded by the newly formed California studio SuperBot Entertainment, and external testing has already started in Sony's Santa Monica office. Gale also shared now-deleted tweets from senior level designer Chris Molina's, which referred to Sony's all-star 'Michael' commercial as “vaguely foreshadowing our soon to be announced title”.

Now that the internet is buzzing about Title Fight, expect Sony to make an official announcement shortly, we wouldn't be too shocked if it happened at the VGAs. In the meantime, see what you can deduce from the handful of Molina's development pictures, and let us know what you think of Sony's Super Smash Bros concept.

    lol wut? actually if i remember, there was an article here once about possible ssb clones on other consoles, any chance of reviving it? I'd go look for it but im a little lazy right now.

    Microsoft should make one where it is Master Chief and Marcus and a Forza car. You only need three characters right?

    I laughed.

    This reminds me of Onimusha Blade Warriors.

    While this seems extremely lazy in terms of originality, I'm still quite excited for it - I have put more hours into the SSB series possibly more than any game series in existence, and if Sony wants to try and replicate it, I say go for it. I can see it now... Sully is an unlock-able character, cole would have some sweet electrical moves... excited!

    Always figured Kratos would be good for a Smash Bros. style game. Also, Radec? Hell yeah!
  • ultimatepunchrod - November 28, 2011 11:04 a.m.

    This could be OK; although, I'm not a huge Smash Bros fan.
  • ultimatepunchrod - November 28, 2011 11:06 a.m.

    Also, what is that last picture?
  • Boonehams - November 28, 2011 11:57 a.m.

    It's a shot of their debug mode screen. In the lower left-hand corner, there's a block of text which specifically names Sweet Tooth and Kratos as playable characters.

    so soon we'll see Smash Bros. 4, That weird Cartoon Network one (That was released already right?), and a Sony smasher. Cool. Brawlers for all.

    Who the hell is Paul Gale?
  • taokaka - November 28, 2011 4:44 p.m.

    Only the greatest man ever! Have you never heard of him because he is a household name and you must be living under a rock to have not heard of the Paul Gale. In other words, no clue.
  • jmcgrotty - November 29, 2011 3:06 a.m.

    He has written for 1up.com and bitmob.com, EGM and a few others. He was also a background character in Street Fighter 4's Cruise Ship level (at youtube.com/watch?v=EX6I0Bj5WYU , you can see his name in the credits around the 3:50 mark), as well as appearing in a Street Fighter comic.

    hmm, this looks pretty cool, I guess I'll have to watch the VGAs... They're pretty awful, but the games announced are not!
  • BladedFalcon - November 28, 2011 12:34 p.m.

    Too early to make any real opinion of it. Certainly not an original idea at all, but if they can at least make it as fun as an actual Smash Bros game, and not like, say Onimusha Blade warriors. (Which got old really, really fast.) Then it might be worth checking it out. Also, they should get Wander, bonus points if they include Agro somehow.
  • Omrikon - November 28, 2011 12:35 p.m.

    Sounds interesting. Maybe they'll actually have online play like SSB never did. In the meantime, I'm looking forward to the potential character list. Namely, where's Crash Bandicoot?
  • tymillz102 - November 28, 2011 12:53 p.m.

    SSBB had online play, but it wasn't that great because of lag and matchmaking problems.
  • Zanetsuken - November 28, 2011 12:38 p.m.

    No Ratchet & Clank? NO SALE In all seriousness, I'm sure they'll be in the game. I'm honestly surprised that it took Sony this long. Also, FriedBeans wins the comment section for this article. XD
  • tymillz102 - November 28, 2011 12:51 p.m.

    I cannot not wait for this game!!
  • jmcgrotty - November 29, 2011 1:11 a.m.

    Did you mean the double-negative?
