The hat of "Sony Mascot" has been worn by many, many different critters and folk since the days of Crash Bandicoot and, uh, Croc.
In fact, Sony's stable of lovable household names is so fully stocked that they've decided to pit their creations against one another to determine who lives and who dies
Okay so, that last part might be a little hyperbolic, but the rumor mill is operating at full capacity over Title Fight
, a Super Smash Bros.-ish cross-franchise brawler reportedly in development at SuperBot Entertainment
, according to The Paul Gale Network
. If rumors are to be believed, the game will feature a cast of Sony-console specific characters like Nathan Drake, Sweet Tooth, Sly Cooper, that guy from Killzone and Fat Princess. Fights will take place in various Sony related locations such as Sandover Village or a golf course from Hot Shots Golf
The gallery of images below, which shows Sweet Tooth, a blank female form that may or may not be Heavenly Sword
's Nariko and a debug screen that mentions Kratos, were tweeted (and subsequently deleted) by SuperBot Entertainment's senior level designer Chris Molina. Apparently, this hullabaloo is also what that franchise-rich teaser trailer from September
was all about, which would also indicate the inclusion of Parappa the Rapper, as well as a representative from FOXHOUND.
If all this pans out, Title Fight
will be the latest in a long, proud history of SCEA-published fighting games like Battle Arena Toshinden
and Cardinal Syn
. We'll keep our ear to the ground for more as this story develops.
