Two more characters were revealed at Comic-Con in San Diego today, for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. Jak & Daxter from Naughty Dog’s Jak and Daxter series and Cole MacGrath from Sucker Punch Studio’s inFamous have been added to the game’s roster.
Players familiar with Jak and Daxter’s arsenal will immediately recognize some of the weaponry utilized in PlayStation All-Stars including the Blaster, Needle Lazer, Gyro Burster, and Mass Inverter. When the going gets tough, Jak has the ability to unleash the powers of both Dark and Light Jak to even the playing field, as seen in Jak II and Jak 3 respectively. Daxter even lends a hand in Jak’s melee attacks.
Cole takes advantage of a wide array of abilities in inFAMOUS. He is a well-rounded fighter who is effective at both close and long range combat, and is highly mobile as well. Players can command both his electrokinesis and cryokinesis, using these powers to assault opponents from a safe distance or propel himself towards the action. With these abilities, Cole proves to be a formidable adversary for the rest of the PlayStation All-Stars cast!
Sony still has lots more to reveal about the game before it’s released on October 23rd 2012.
