Report: Sony producing mascot fighter, codenamed 'Title Fight'
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
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.
