It seems like figuring out the roster for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale should be pretty easy. Sony only has so many mascots, right? So depending on how clever you are, you might have seen the announcements of Cole McGrath, Jak and Daxter coming a mile away.

The PlayStation Blog gives word that Jak and Daxter come as a packaged set, just like their series of the same name. Jak can use his arsenal of weapons, and he can become Dark and Light Jak to bring the pain to his opponents. Daxter is a support role, lending a hand in melee attacks. Cole, meanwhile, from the Infamous franchise, uses his electro and cryo powers (from Infamous 2). These powers come in handy for ranged attacks, or to quickly close a gap to his opponents.

The game is due October 23. Check out the character reveal trailers below.

      i wonder how this is going to control. is it going to go the simplistic approach where you can pick up and play any character with the same list of button moves or are they going to go all out fighting game style where you're going to have to memorize an extensive list of controls and there will be 0 approachability for casual players?

        I imagine the smash bros route of casual controls. I can't see this game being super complex if they want sales

      Kind of wish Daxter was his own standalone character.

      If they don't manage to get Crash Bandicoot in there somehow I will consider the game a failure.

        Yep, agreed. Although having Parappa redeems some of the fail.
