It’s a move that makes too much sense. Sony bundles up a collection of their characters and has them throw down in a Super Smash Bros. manner. Too much sense to actually happen? Not if one Twitter account and the rumor mill has anything to say about it.
Rumors have been swirling as of late that Sony will soon be unveiling a new fighting title that will see some similarities to Nintendo’s Smash Bros. franchise. In particular, it seems that characters from Sony’s various game franchises will be gathering for this upcoming project.
New content has been discovered that all but confirms this speculated title. Chris Molina, a senior level designer at SuperBot Entertainment, has posted the images above to his Twitter account and has left messages that essentially confirm its existence. One image even indicates that Kratos and Sweet Tooth will be making an appearance.
SuperBot has been the studio rumored to be working on the project.
