Well, it's not exactly an official unveiling but we'll take it…with a frown of uncertainty.
Yesterday, Paul Gale Network teased a big new PS3 exclusive , which the site proceeded to pseudo-announce .
Apparently, it's Sony's take on Super Smash Bros. Brawl . If you're familiar with the game, it's a 2D fighter that features most of the legendary Nintendo mascots. It offers ceaseless action, four-player fun, and the chance for Bowser to square off against Link (and a great many other combat possibilities). As you might expect, Sony will use their mascots for this new title, and the fighting will also take place on a 2D plane.
The source couldn't reveal the actual name of the game, but did give us a sampling of the combatant roster: Kratos, Sly Cooper, Nathan Drake, Fat Princess, Parappa the Rapper, Sweet Tooth, and Rico ( Killzone ). It seems the stages will be "vibrant and varied" and will include locations like Misty Island from Jak & Daxter and LittleBigPlanet . This is nice and all but until we see an official announcement, we're still calling it a rumor.
We also have no idea why a source would wait to "announce" a game when they're not allowed to reveal any pertinent information (developer, publisher, intended platforms, release date, percent complete, etc.). Furthermore, we don't know what designer would give a relatively unknown site such a scoop; things here aren't adding up. So we're skeptical.
