The lights are on
Update: Fans of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale will be excited that there is now more evidence bolstering a previous rumor regarding some of the game's combatants.
NeoGAF has spotted what may have been official images from the game's homepage featuring Sackboy and Raiden that have since been taken down.
Original Story: A series of images has appeared on Reddit showcasing characters and stages from Loco Roco, Heavenly Sword, BioShock Infinite, and others that could appear in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.
There isn't a whole of evidence to substantiate the legitimacy of these images, especially the characters, but the stages certainly seem believable. You can see all the images below, and it looks like stages from Loco Roco, Infamous, Ape Escape, BioShock Infinte, Resistance, Killzone, and Twisted Metal may all be appearing in the game. A stage from LittleBigPlanet that has already been confirmed also appeared in the images.
As far as the characters go, there is an image showing 12 characters. Six of the featured characters, Heihachi, Toro, Jak, and Cole, have been shown before. The others are all new. The image is obscured slightly with the word "leak" repeated all over it, but it looks like Raiden from Metal Gear Solid, Dante from the upcoming Devil May Cry from Ninja Theory, Ratchet, Sack Boy, Spike from Ape Escape, Sir Daniel Fortesque from MediEvil, Nariko from Heavenly Sword, and either the evil version of Cole or Nathan Hale from Resistance as commenters discussing the leak online have theorized, may be appearing in the game.
Again, there is no evidence to prove that any of these assets are actually from PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, other than the stages look like they could be from the game, and the characters all seem like ones that could conceivably appear in Battle Royale. If these characters and stages do turn out to be genuinely from the game, Nariko from Heavenly Sword is my favorite new character. I really adore Heavenly Sword and have always been disappointed that it seemed to fall into obscurity after it released. I would love to see it receive some recognition by appearing in All-Stars.

Everything that has been shown so far seems like it would be a good fit. I am going to go ahead and say that I believe the leak. It is just a matter of time before it gets confirmed as truth...or a leak.
I wonder who the hidden characters in the game are going to be?
if they add crash......and maybe sora lol. ill be good.
cool PlayStation All-Stars Characters wall cool
Smash Bros clone or not, this looks awesome. Character variety means I won't get bored, and stage variety will also add fun. The costumes also excite me... I can't wait.
picture different good
see add wall maybe
I want this game SOOO bad!!!
Here's to hoping Nariko IS in this game! ^_^
read interesting PlayStation All-Star
Yay ! Can't wait!
If there is Sackboy, my currency is yours, Sony.
Would be great to bring Nariko back, I still hope for Heavenly Sword 2.
Please have Daniel Fortesque in this game! He needs to make a comeback and hopefully be popular enough for a Medievil 3!
Dante!! WHOOT! (Just hope they have costumes in the game so i could change dmc5 dante to dmc1,3,4...AND PLEASE HAVE NERO!)
MediEvil would be an interesting character: Magic/Sorcery, and a huge sword!
