SCANDAL: Solid Snake Joins Cast Of Sony Smash Bros, Betrays Nintendo
Sony announced a new fighting game last month featuring many of Sony’s most popular characters. Comparisons were immediately drawn with Nintendo’s wildly popular Super Smash Bros. series. Many fans wondered if Solid Snake from the Metal Gear Solid series, would appear in Sony All-Stars. Snake would make sense, considering that every major MGS game has been released on a Sony system, and the original MGS was one of Playstation’s most popular titles.
However, some thought that Snake’s appearance in 2008’s Super Smash Bros Brawl might prohibit an appearance in the Sony game.
Today, IGN found a tweet from a Sony All-Stars voice actor, which implies that Snake, along with Nathan Drake from Uncharted and Cole from inFamous will all appear.
This isn’t a shocker but, it will be interesting to see how fanboys react to this news.
Sony Announces “Playstation All-Stars”, A Smash Bros Clone. Can it Revive the Console Warz?
Today, Sony formally unveiled Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale its
clone answer to Nintendo’s popular Super Smash Bros. series of fighting games. While at first glance, the games look similar, they are not identical. For instance, All-Stars uses Sony characters, while Smash Bros. uses Nintendo characters!
There do seem to be a few changes which will make for a similar, yet fresh game to compliment Smash Bros. Instead of knocking opponents off the screen to win a fight, players build up a super meter that is in no way like Smash Bros. Final Smash attacks in order to win.
All-Stars’ cast is truly a who’s-who of Sony’s large stable of beloved characters, like that guy from Killzone, or Fat Princess from the game everyone only played for a week until Street Fighter 4 came out.
An even larger question is related to the meta-discussion about this game.
Nerds Nintendo fans and slightly less self-aware nerds Sony fans will debate All-Stars’ authenticity for long after the game’s release. Some experts believe that the tension betwween the two fanboy groups could return video game message boards to the PS2-Xbox-Gamecube levels of the mid-to-late 2000’s. God help the forum mods if Solid Snake is announced for All-Stars.
