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.
