"Title Fight" - Sony's version of Super Smash Bros. (Rumor, Unconfirmed)

In the past 30 days, rumors have been circulating about Sony developing an equivalent of Nintendo's popular Super Smash Bros. franchise. PaulGaleNetwork first revealed small tidbits about this game back in October, and then elaborated on some points two weeks later, with some info on a character lineup, and how the characters' "special abilities" would be implemented. Since then, other media outlets have started to disclose information they have gathered on this title; Superbot Entertainment revealed recently that it was in charge of designing a "combat-heavy multiplayer title for the PS3," and Chris Molina, a level designer for the aforementioned company, posted details and pictures (of Sweet Tooth, and coding for Kratos) about Title Fight on his Twitter account; they were removed shortly after.

Also, the "Michael" trailer has been labeled as the teaser trailer for this title.

If anything, such a multiplayer title would go hand-in-hand with the "Long Live Play" campaign Sony's been going with as of late. But regardless, this is still unconfirmed at the moment, so take it with a grain of salt.

What is going on in the second picture? Since it looks like what happens when you beat a game of solitaire on an older Windows PC.

Sweet Tooth, though? I'm okay with this. Parappa the Rappa? Oh god yes.

"Title Fight," though? I can't tell if that's a good pun or a really really tremendously crappy one.

The second picture is incomplete beta coding, it looks like. The important details in that picture are in the text at the bottom though; one of the lines has "Sweet Tooth" and "Kratos" performing actions against one another.

"Title Fight" is the tentative title right now, and it may change.

Regardless, "Title Fight" will probably stick to it for at least a while. It seems like it'd be an amusing title for a game, but the pun feels like it may be missed. (A fight between characters from various titles... Oh, man, is that awful. In a good-ish way.)

Needs moar Jak/Daxter or Ratchet/Clank.
Especially Ratchet/Clank. Though, depending on what gear they're outfitted with, I could see them being tough to balance. Certainly there won't be any RYNOs, but at least one of the rocket launchers seems a bit reasonable. I'm a fan of the classics, so I'd personally prefer the Devastator if any of the

why am i getting into that yet

Wanna-be final smash for Ratchet maybe? RYNO blast?

So a Sony version of Super Smash Bros. Isn't there anything that Sony won't copy from Nintendo?

Anyway I wouldn't mind seeing this proving the game play is good and the character that I like are in the game.

We don't know anything about the gameplay, and Nintendo didn't invent the cross-over fighting game, and that's the main similarity so far.

Yeah I kinda knew that. But if I didn't mention it, someone would.

Even though we have no idea what the game play there is no way it will good as Smash Bros.

Geez talk about a Nintendo fanboy waltzing in here like that. Dunno if you are trolling or not.

If Sony's "Title fight" game has a stable online multiplayer it will already be loads better than Brawl by a landslide.

Their online services for one.

Y'know, assuming you weren't actually trying to make that a double negative.

Fanboy ignorance at it's finest folks.

And then the pot called the kettle black.

Warning: Jokes!
Honestly, I'll need to see the roster before I even get interested in this. A crossover fighting game is only as good as its roster, after all.

Speaking of which, I hope Sony goes all out and gets third parties in on this. Unlike Nintendo which can and currently is surviving solely on first and second party games, Sony probably wouldn't be here today without third party games. Could be interesting.

A full list of IPs/franchises/etc. Sony owns:

Wipeout

Of these, God of War, Parappa the Rapper, and Twisted Metal representatives are already slated for use in the game. There is a solid chance Uncharted, InFamous, Sly Cooper, Ratchet and Clank, and Jak and Daxter reps will be used, as well as maybe Metal Gear due to ties between Konami and Sony. Fat Princess and Little Big Planet may also be used, particularly the latter due to a stage from that series being developed. There's also the possibility of a Demon Souls rep being used.

True, Sony owes a lot to 3rd party support. But Sony has a wide list of franchises to use for characters, stages, etc. Title Fight is projected to have 20 characters in the game, so it's not a demanding number to the point 3rd party characters have to make a significant portion of that list.
