    Two more players, inFamous' Cole McGrath and Jak and Daxter's titular characters, are coming to the upcoming Sony mash up fighter.

    The trailers (viewable at the source) show a bit of what Cole and Jak and Daxter can do. Cole utilizes a mastery of elemental attacks, from lightning to ice to wind, to clear the battlefield, while Jak and Daxter team up with a large array of weaponry.

    The game is still scheduled for an October 23rd release for both the Playstation 3 and Playstation Vita.

    I wonder how much smash bros fanboys will freak out at how "Here comes a new challenger" Sounds too much Like "Warning, Challenger approaching :P"
    Anywho, Looks like people got their inclusion of jak and daxter (not that it wasn't a given they'd be there.) Looks to me that they aren't doing a bad job of keeping their players balanced. I look forward to seeing more info.

    They're been using the "Here comes a new challenger" for like every character announcement trailer.

    I'm just wondering if this is the final roster or if there's more. I'd be severely disappointed if this was it.

    inFamous's Cole McGrath? Seriously?

    Oh god, he doesn't fit at all in the game. What a horrible choice although I suppose there aren't many characters for Sony to choose from, anyways.

    What- no! What the fuck do they think they're doing? Desecrating Jak just to copy Yoshi's Final Smash? Christ!

    I forgot that flying around and shooting beams is a Nintendo-only thing.

    But I'm hoping they round off the roster with Sackboy, Ratchet and Clank, Gabe Logan (if they're too poor to get to get a Snake), that MediEvil guy, and I dunno, some Final Fantasy character.

    Criticism.


    Stop crying Guild just because my comment doesn't fit your bias towards this game.

    I didn't want to say "Cloud Strife" but I was kinda implying "Cloud Strife".

    Maybe they'll just say "Fuck you fans" and put Squall Twatface in there.

    I really don't give a fuck if it's in Brawl, though it's probably where the inspiration is from, similar to Radec's L3.

    Did you even play the Jak games? That is NOT what Light Jak does.

    I wonder if they can just put a Final Fantasy character tho... Unless they pay SE a lot of money for it, which I doubt they'd be willing to.

    It's been a while for the record so I don't remember them too clearly.

    It's basically free publicity for Square Enix so there's no reason they wouldn't. They already got two third party characters (Heihachi and Big Daddy), there's no reason why they wouldn't get characters from a franchise that has been Sony leaning for the past 15 years.

    EDIT: I wouldn't like it but Tidus from FFX would fit being that FFX is PS2 exclusive and there's an upcoming HD remakeport of it. Although Cloud is definitely the more iconic Final Fantasy-Sony character.

    I'm confuse, does this game have rings out or not? So, you wouldn't need to power up to win?

    No shit, it's like this guy has a crap ton of sand in his vag or something. How can Cole not fit in the game, but yet Fat Princess or Nathan Drake can?

    But are you sure it's good publicity?

    Jokes aside, Squeenix doesn't like to run with characters. It would only be free advertising if they went out of their way to choose the rare character with an actual running series.

    Throwing milk at the bitches!
    Hmm two pages of guild and other assorted haters defending a game which blantly admits it takes things from another game against a siege of butt-hurt fanboys. I just love the maturity of the temp.
