Looking around on the PS All-Stars forums, I came across a few surprises. Several users managed to make out a few leaks and get tidbits of information for PlayStation All-Stars after SuperBot updated the game’s official website. Unfortunately, the website was reverted back to normal after the information got out, but we do have some screens for you!
For starters, the game’s official box art has been leaked. It looks pretty neat, for the most part. It showcases several characters duking it out against each other. Check the image out below. However, what is more important is the little community banner to the left of the box art image. This confirms appearances of Nariko and Ratchet, as seen in the far left in between PaRappa and Sweet Tooth (Nariko) and to the left of Colonel Radec (Ratchet). However, there are some mysterious figures that are hard to make out as well. For starters, a character to the left of Ratchet which bears a strong resemblance to Jin from the Tekken franchise. I surely hope this isn’t the case, as we do not need two Tekken characters in this title. Also, in the far right, alongside Cole (in his old gear, confusingly) we see a character with a scythe. I am led to believe that this may be Ryu Hayabusa from the Ninja Gaiden series, which would make for a pretty neat surprise if this is true! Check the image out below to try and make out any other characters you may see.
Along with these character and box leaks, we have what looks like another confirmed rivalry. This is a pretty exciting one too – Raiden vs Cole MacGrath. As seen in another image pulled from the site, there seems to be a section on the site dedicated to ‘ultimate mash ups’ and leading the banner is an image of Cole and Raiden striking each other. This could be nothing more than a way for players to create their ideal mash up or a neat little rivalry. It also confirms the validity behind the recent character leak that includes Raiden. Check out the sweet image below.
This sure is exciting, but I’m hoping that Jin really isn’t included in the title. I’m still hoping for a few more surprises, praying for Crash Bandicoot, Spyro and Wander from Shadow of the Collosus. Keep it locked to iGo Gaming for more info as they are released!
UPDATE: Check out this shot below of the roster! Looks like we might be getting an official announcement of Sackboy over at GamesCom.
