Two New Characters Announced for Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale

The official Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale panel at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con brought some expected but nonetheless exciting news about two new playable characters.

First up is the star of Playstation 3 gems inFamous and inFamous 2Cole McGrath.


As a HUGE fan of the inFamous games, I’m very excited to see that Cole is going to be included into Sony’s smash fighter. The reason I say that it was expected is because the actor who plays McGrath, Eric Ladin, is now infamous for revealing information via his twitter account. The information he tweeted a recently was supposed to be secret and the posts were removed fairly swiftly, presumably by request from Sony representatives. Here are the tweets:

As you can tell, Ladin  confirmed Cole McGrath as character for Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale long before Sony did but it is still so cool to see the electrically charged hero/villain in action in the arena.

The other combatant(s) revealed are the long-standing Sony exclusive and titular heroes of the Jak and Daxter series, Jak and Daxter themselves.


While the duo have not featured in an original game on Sony’s current generation console, the recently released HD remastered Playstation 2 trilogy was met with large critical acclaim. While they have starred in games separately, Jak and Daxter will play as one character in Battle Royale. As one the leading series of the last generation, it didn’t take a detective to deduce that they would be playable characters in Sony’s upcoming massive fighting game.

Now that many of the most obvious characters have been announced, who else would you like to see in Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale? Let us know in the comments below, on Twitter or on Facebook.
