SuperBot Entertainment is developing PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale (Title Fight). First screens, James Bond update, and more info within.

Title Fight by SuperBot Entertainment on Paul Gale Network

Well it’s now been exactly 4 weeks since Paul Gale Network first teased that a new PlayStation 3 blockbuster game was in development (and then unveiled that game the next day on Halloween) and today I can officially reveal that the developer of Title Fight is indeed SuperBot Entertainment.

I’ll state now that with everything I put up, rest assured it does come from a valid source that has become a friend in the industry and if I’m ever uncertain about something, I will call it a rumor and let you know what about it makes me uncertain. If you ever want a break from gaming news and care to read something a bit different, click on Paul’s Friends which is a little part of my site dedicated to the many awesome people that have helped me out along the way as a creative talent and journalist in this industry. It represents but a small portion of those that I know, but some people are either camera shy and/or prefer their pics and identity/affiliation be kept secret and I have to remain respectful of that.

Back to Title Fight now…I can share the following with you:

Sweet Tooth in Title Fight on Paul Gale Network
Sweet Tooth

Do you remember in my Q/A article why I chose Sweet Tooth to talk about, revealing that he is one of the heavier fighters, etc.? Well it’s because his model was one of the first to be designed and brought up to a working condition for the game. Here he is in his normal, “human”, playable form. And not pictured is his Level 3 Bar Super Move, in which as previously mentioned, involves him becoming his Ice Cream Truck Mech of a self.

Developmental shot of Title Fight on Paul Gale Network
Developmental shot

Here is a simple, developmental shot of the game which involves the early polygonal model of a certain character not yet listed on my site. Each character undergoes a similar process, because SuperBot Entertainment is trying to stay faithful to each character’s original design.

Here’s a picture of some of the members of SuperBot Entertainment playing in their offices. And in a previous article when I mentioned that external testing has begun on the game, it was done right here (well, here for me) in the Santa Monica, California office. Oh and do know (in case you didn’t read on my site already) that this game functions just fine with a standard PS3 controller, so don’t be scared of joysticks if you’re not an arcade gamer.

Aside from the text at the bottom from this debug of Title Fight, the picture you’re seeing does not reveal much. This picture, as well as the other three come from Chris Molina’s Twitter account. Chris is a Senior Level Designer at SuperBot Entertainment and in addition to sharing these pictures, also had the following to say:

1.Our capture station and waiting area – Parappa is a permanent resident http://twitpic.com/6a60jz

2.The character artist sitting a row ahead of mine is modeling polygonal female boobies. Carry on…

3.Our studio fighters getting their brawl on http://twitpic.com/6au76k

4.Racing to finish a level design doc for today’s review – map layout is looking spiffy if I do say so myself.

5.Slam! Second level design pitch approved by our studio leads! Now onto Sony Santa Monica for a final green light.

6.In the middle of a skype video interview with a level design candidate from Osaka, Japan.

7.New Sony Playstation commercial vaguely foreshadowing our soon to be announced title – http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature…&v=HBuK3EcY6vk

8.Checking out the original art assets from a Sony IP title we’re appropriating for my level – very cool seeing this environment in raw form.

I know that you all want the good screenshots of each character doing their Super Move and the awesome gameplay videos from Sandover Village and LittleBigPlanet, but know that they are coming. With several articles that I’ve written on Title Fight over the last four weeks, hopefully it has whet your appetite and satisfied you enough for now. All you have to do is click on one of the stories below to read again or for the first time, a bunch of info like gameplay details, your most popular questions being answered, and more.

James Bond in Title Fight on Paul Gale Network
James Bond by Paul Gale

No, I’m not in the game (well at least not yet!), but this James Bond picture was one of my first clues about the game and the reason for it was that some involved with Title Fight were considering him as a playable character. And as I previously hinted at in a former article, the reason why is 1) Sony’s involvement in the new Bond film and the fact that it’d almost coincide with this game’s release (and quite possibly God of War 4 as well) and 2) James Bond is cool and it’d be a neat and unexpected playable character that they could do a lot with IF he makes the cut.

Thank you once again for your patience, understanding and support. There’s more to come, everyone…and you’re going to love it.

Thanks Paul :)

Paul Gale November 27, 2011 at 6:55 am

Regis…you’re welcome bud!

Michael O'Hanlon November 27, 2011 at 6:07 am

ITS REAL ITS REAL YAY

Paul Gale November 27, 2011 at 6:54 am

It sure is, Michael!

Sissel November 27, 2011 at 7:44 am

FOR MICHAEL!

Michael O'Hanlon November 27, 2011 at 11:29 am

think you can put a word in for everyone’s favorite lombax and our eco friend?

Anonymous November 27, 2011 at 4:35 pm

He did say something about Sandover Village which is from Jak and Daxter. ;]

Keke November 27, 2011 at 7:26 am

Now It’s Awesome ! I think I know the name of the character of the “development shot”: Nariko from Heavenly Sword. Moreover, Paul, you talk about GOD OF WAR IV ??? OMG OMG OMG OMG !

Jossel_Ozoryu November 27, 2011 at 8:41 am

Since SSB Melee I was waiting to see something like this, a Sony “Smash Bros.” game. Now that is in development I’m so excited…
I hope the studio keep in mind that SSB has things that makes it a “unique” game (for me having a damage counter than a life bar was quite different back in SSB for N64 and I liked it so much), and they can show up with a game with the same style but at the same time with something “fresh”…
SSB is a strong “Fighter”, so make our favorite Sony chars do an awesome Crossover Fight game as SSB.

Charles November 27, 2011 at 8:56 am

When are we going to see some actual screenshots/announcements/anything, really?

Michael O'Hanlon November 27, 2011 at 12:52 pm

what do you call sweet tooth in this article. thats what turned me to the believers side

Brad Silvia November 27, 2011 at 5:42 pm

Nariko from Heavenly Sword is the second character. I can confirm that from my pestering of people in the industry. Also, a NeoGAF poster found this-

http://t.co/zoc7hHC2

If we go by that convention, as well as the roster from PlayStation Move Heroes, 3rd party representation will be next to nothing, which means no Metal Gear, no Final Fantasy, and assuredly no Spyro and no Crash.

James Bond being pitched, as Paul already mentioned, is due to Sony distributing the Bond films and to possibly advertise Skyfall, which Sony is distributing.

Michael O'Hanlon November 28, 2011 at 1:07 am

but look at brawl its third party wasn’t in the first dev shots or posters either. either way poster = awesomesauce

Brad Silvia November 29, 2011 at 8:15 am

@Michael O’Hanlon:

What are you talking about? Snake was in Super Smash Bros. Brawl’s announcement trailer at E3 2006.

Snake’s inclusion was due to Hideo Kojima BEGGING Nintendo to include him. I guarantee you that he will not be begging Sony to include him in this game being developed by an amateurish American studio, thanks to Chris Molina’s unprofessional way of handling this game’s development.

Seriously, you people need to do your research.

Michael O'Hanlon December 3, 2011 at 5:45 am

but sonic was included months before the release cause the japanese had a poll for a third party character and sonic won. i knew about snake being revealed first i just didn’t know when.

Regis November 28, 2011 at 3:28 am

PaRappa the Rapper, Fat Princess ???

Brad Silvia November 27, 2011 at 5:50 pm

Also, to the posters of NeoGAF who keep asking for Tomba!/Tombi!:

Sadly, the character is currently owned by GungHo Online Entertainment, Inc., and Sony isn’t going to invest in gaining the rights to use the character in a game dedicated to their OWN characters.

Harry Buck November 27, 2011 at 7:08 pm

I’m not going to lie I am not COMPLETELY satisfied (guess I’m picky). But it is reassuring to know that there is proof behind the game being created. Hope better screens come out before the year is over.

gustave154 November 27, 2011 at 8:20 pm

wow i knew this would happen one day…
waited 16 years for this… =)
thx sony been your loyal fan since 1995 xD

Im Sorry :( November 28, 2011 at 12:54 am

Paul I seriously want to apologize for doubting you. You were being truthful all along. I just want to say that….YOU ARE THE MAN!!!!

JP November 28, 2011 at 2:02 am

I’d personally like the following characters to appear as well (besides the 7 already mentioned):

Jak
Ratchet
Emmett Graves
Cole McGrath
Solid Snake
Nathan Hale
Ape Escape monkey
Nariko
Sackboy
Madison Paige

Kips November 28, 2011 at 3:25 am

Is something wrong with the twitpics links or something? I cant exactly see them.

Sponge November 28, 2011 at 2:15 pm

Really hope all these leaks mean this title will be revealed soon :)

Can you give us an any tiny, itsy bitsy clue on how long of a wait we’ll be waiting for an announcement?

Regis November 28, 2011 at 6:32 pm

I think it will be revealed in VGA :)

Sonyownseverything November 28, 2011 at 6:57 pm

Hi guys if you look closely at the 2nd pic
You can see a Megaman actionfigure
Now im getting hope that Megaman might be possible
3rd party Character

Brad Silvia November 29, 2011 at 8:10 am

@Sonyownseverything:

So that must mean that Mario is in as well seeing how he’s being obscured by that developer’s monitor? People need to use their heads.

Bullets November 28, 2011 at 6:58 pm

Thanks Paul!

ICantWait November 28, 2011 at 8:31 pm

Is the game actually called Title Fight or is that just a codename?

Brad Silvia November 29, 2011 at 8:19 am

@ICantWait:

It’s a TENTATIVE name, NOT a codename. Which means it could be just like

‘Heroes on the Move’ –> ‘PlayStation Move Heroes’

jordan1996a November 29, 2011 at 5:52 am

im so glad this is real! can u inform me if theres gunna be an official site to reveal chars.?

link71711 November 29, 2011 at 10:15 am

I have some good ideas for items like athe blast shard from infamous the vacuum cleaner from the new ratchet and clank game the creatornater from lbp.

Ark November 29, 2011 at 5:27 pm

is there any chance of kingdom hearts characters?

jordan1996a November 29, 2011 at 6:00 pm

i want sackboy to be able to use his popit as an attack and once he uses it on a char. he gets there abilities and appearance like kirby and then he automatically stores it in his costumes to he can turn into it wenever he wants within the battle, so if its 4 player free for all and he popit attacked each char. than he can switch between them and their attacks

anthony jak November 29, 2011 at 11:51 pm

its true becouse in the last picture appears the name of sweethoot and the name of kratos XD

so exited i wanna have it!!!!

Rasgar November 30, 2011 at 7:22 am

Even though it’s a really obscure game, you think it’s possible that there could be a character from Folklore? It was a PS3 exclusive, and if I remember right, it was developed by Sony. If Folklore could get some representation, that would be amazing, especially if it were Keats.

Joshua November 30, 2011 at 9:28 am

you know which character i would love for DLC…BRAVE FENCER MUSASHI!!!…that game was a classic

Kips November 30, 2011 at 9:29 am

Can you give a proper link to the persons twitter you got from this? The pics arent really working, and I kinda wanna see them. Or you could fix em, whatever works.

Nox November 30, 2011 at 10:05 am

Dude, If you have any sway in the company PLEASE push for them to put tomba into the game.

I have been waiting to play him again for a little while and this could be the perfect oppurtunity.

wariofan14 December 1, 2011 at 3:15 pm

Agreed, This game should have Tomba, and as a guy above me said, Mushashi. I hope that Parappa really is in the game!

jordan1996a November 30, 2011 at 1:26 pm

paul can u tell me if the developers can make an official site to reveal characters like smash bros dojo for super smash bros brawl?

jordan1996a December 1, 2011 at 2:39 pm

in title fight do the characters have a life bar or do they have that damage percentage like in smash bros, also is the game going to do stuff that is new and that does not appear in smash bros because i want this game to feel like its own game and not like a smash bros clone?

Willie Council December 1, 2011 at 8:59 pm

So what I would really like to know that if characters that was previously on Sony consoles such as: Crash Bandicoot, Spyro The Dragon, Croc, etc will they have a chance of appearing?

TheQuestionaire December 4, 2011 at 6:59 pm

Sooooooo, dem twitter pics aint dhere no moar. GIMME DEM; NAO!

Wait December 8, 2011 at 1:09 pm

This had better not copy SSB exactly.
