Details for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale are leaking like a sieve. A few days ago we got a look at Evil Cole. Then, Raiden followed right on his heels. Now, new footage has surfaced, pre-PAX, that shows off the remaining characters leaked weeks ago: Nariko from Heavenly Sword and Sir Daniel Fortesque from MediEvil.
Each form of the Heavenly Sword appears to be present, giving Nariko attacks of all shapes and sizes. The rocket launcher also makes an appearance with guidable projectiles. She also has a devastating ground pound that lifts large swords from the ground. Her level one super calls on Kai to play a bit of twing-twang, blasting a barrel of explosive fireworks. The level 2 super places her behind a mounted cannon, shooting large incendiary projectiles across the screen. For her level 3 super, her moveset changes entirely as she harnesses the power of the Heavenly Sword. These spinning and grappling attacks have an insane range to them, that seem almost unavoidable. Monkey peaches! Nariko looks good.
Sir Dan is another character I’m sad to admit I don’t know much about. He’s a bit lumbering, but his large sword and shield make up for it, dealing major damage within a wide range. He’s got a pretty devastating looking shield bash and can throw his head at combatants to stun them. Axe, hammer, and bow attacks are also shown off in his reveal trailer. His top super summons the Anubis Stone, which also has a giant area of effect. Looks like I need to give his game a go.
Time Station Stage:
That’s it for now. The next time I mention a new character reveal, which I believe will be the Tokyo Game Show in about 3 weeks, it will be someone that we haven’t known about. I’m brimming with excitement. I’m still cautiously optimistic for Crash, Spyro, Rayman, Isaac Clarke, or a Chimera.
