[Update: The developers mentioned that more characters will be revealed at this year's Gamescom convention in Germany.]
Cole MacGrath (from Sucker Punch’s Infamous games) and Jak and Daxter (from Naughty Dog’s PS2 platforming franchise) are throwing their proverbial hats into the ring for the PS3-exclusive brawler, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. The characters were revealed during SuperBot Entertainment’s panel about the game at Comic-Con 2012 in San Diego, Calif. They also showed off an early teaser trailer for the game — when it was still called Title Fight — that was created to pitch the game to Sony Santa Monica.
With these new additions, the roster of known fighters now stands at 12. PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale will arrive on store shelves on October 23 for both the PS3 and the PS Vita. Sony is doing what it can to stir up interest in the the game, which is one of its major releases for the fall video game season.
