Rumours suggest a PlayStation 3 exclusive fighter called Title Fight is currently in development, featuring characters from God Of War, PaRappa the Rappa, Uncharted, Jak And Daxter and LittleBigPlanet.
News of the game has broken in an unusual manner, with website Paul Gale Network (don’t ask us) posting very detailed information on what it’s referring to as ‘Title Fight’.
Apparently around 20 characters are planned for the game, including Colonel Mael Radec from Killzone, Kratos from God Of War, PaRappa the Rapper, Nathan Drake from Uncharted, Sly Cooper, Sweet Tooth from Twisted Metal, and Fat Princess.James Bond also seems to be in the running as a character – the only one not a Sony-published character, although Sony Pictures does own MGM.Stages mentioned include a LittleBigPlanet level, Sandover Village from Jak And Daxter, Everybody’s Golf, and Buzz! We’d imagine that means that Sackboy and Jak and/or Daxter are also shoe-ins as playable characters.Ratchet & Clank is also mentioned as a ‘no-brainer’.Although it all sounds like the ravings of an overexcited fan, there is a fair bit of circumstantial evidence to support the claims. Apart from the sheer level of detail in the descriptions developer SuperBoy Entertainment is known to be working on a PlayStation 3 game for Sony. Their website is also plastered with pictures of arcade joysticks, implying they’re working on a fighter of some sort, and they have a job ad for someone with ‘a strong familiarity with fighting games and fighting game theory’.Since Sony does own all these characters it can do what it likes with them and has already published team-ups such as last year’s rancid mini-game collection PlayStation Move Heroes. When Title Fight might be announced, or released, isn’t clear but at a guess we’d say it was real.
