Internet rumors suggest Sony’s working on a Super Smash Brothers-style fighting game featuring their exclusive characters called Title Fight. Most of the news so far hasn’t come from the most solid sources (a gaming forum and a martial arts blog) so take all this with a grain of salt but Twitter accounts of the alleged development team corroborate the story and a few early screenshots leaked, so there might be something behind this.
Character model of Twisted Metal's Sweet Tooth in Title Fight's development
The Playstation 3 game is allegedly being developed by SuperBot Entertainment, a newer Sony exclusive game studio. Characters mentioned for inclusion so far are Kratos from God of War, Nathan Drake from Uncharted, Sweet Tooth from Twisted Metal, Colonel Mael Radec from Killzone, Sly Cooper, Parappa the Rapper and Fat Princess, with many more names still to come. It’s also rumored the game includes stages based on a LittleBigPlanet level and the Sandover Village from Jak & Daxter, along with Hot Shots Golf characters appearing in some backgrounds.
The gameplay itself supposedly closely resembles Nintendo’s Super Smash Brothers Brawl. Moves are pulled off with the same style of simple button commands, not with Street Fighter-like control movement. The X, Square, Circle and Triangle buttons are used to jump and attack, with the R2 button performing super moves. Like the Smash Brothers games, characters can perform double jumps and stages are designed to let players knock each other off the sides.
There’s also an incredibly vague rumor that James Bond could be in the game, based on Sony Pictures’ participation in the upcoming James Bond movie. The rumors suggest Title Fight’s release is due for around the same time as the film’s release date, along with God of War 4. Current rumors indicate the Sam-Mendes-directed James Bond 23 hits theaters November 9, 2012, so that gives us a window to maybe expect all this stuff.
Again, take all of this as rumor until we hear from more solid sources. The story originally broke on the Paul Gale Network and gaming forum NeoGAF has a great overview of all the Title Fight information we have so far.
