Yesterday, a number of supposedly leaked and legit PlayStation All Stars: Battle Royale playable and environmental character surfaced via Reddit and NeoGAF. The “leaks” also included information on character stages, in-game items and game modes.
The playable characters in the leaked list included:
Ratchet (Ratchet & Clank), Sackboy (LittleBigPlanet), Spike (Ape Escape), Sir Daniel Fortesque (MediEvil), Nariko (Heavenly Sword) and what looks Evil Cole (InFAMOUS), Dante (Devil May Cry) and Raiden (Metal Gear Solid).
The leaked environmental characters or minions (as they are being called by some) included:
Athena (God of War), Captain Qwark (Ratchet & Clank), Worker (Fat Princess), Dollface (Twisted Metal), Helghast Soldier (Killzone), Kai (Heavenly Sword), Kat (DmC Devil May Cry), Keira (Jak & Daxter), Kiya (MediEvil), Kuma (Tekken), Little Sister (BioShock), Monkey (Ape Escape), Murray (Sly Cooper), Nix (inFamous 2), Pierre (Doko Demo Issho), PJ Berri (Parappa the Rapper), Sackbot (LittleBigPlanet 2), Sam (Metal Gear Rising), Sully (Uncharted) and Zeke (inFamous 2).
With these lists in hand, TGL contacted a number of voice actors synonymous with a number of these “leaked” characters, with the hope that could confirm or deny whether or not they contributed their voice to PlayStation All Stars: Battle Royale.
We can confirm that at least three voice actors associated with three of the above “leaked” characters have confirmed to us that they have contributed their voice to their character in PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale. We are not at liberty to reveal the identity of the actors in question or the character they voice. All actors have signed non-disclosure agreements with Sony and SuperBot in relation to their work on the game and as such, this information comes to us in the strictest of confidence. One actor confirmed that they had spent at least two sessions recording voice over for the game earlier in the year and was “surprised” by just how much dialogue there actually was for their character in the game.
TGL has always enjoyed an excellent relationship with the gaming voice acting community and has interviewed some of the biggest names in the business including Solid Snake’s David Hayter, Commander Shepard’s Mark Meer, Duke Nukem’s Jon St. John, Nathan Drake’s Nolan North, Dante’s Reuben Langdon, James Sunderland’s Troy Baker, GlaDOS’ Ellen McLain, Raiden’s Quinton Flynn, PaRappa The Rapper’s Dred Foxx, Sweet Tooth’s J.S Gilbert, Bayonetta’s Hellena Taylor, Isaac Clarke’s Gunnar Wright, John Martson’s Rob Wiethoff, Agent 47′s David Bateson and many more besides. We’re not in the business of making up stories when it comes to voice overs.
PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale is due this Autumn on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita.
