Images of Sony's rumoured Smash Bros. rival have emerged.
New studio SuperBot Entertainment was last week linked to the development of what is reportedly codenamed Title Fight, a fighting game to be published by Sony Computer Entertainment America for PlayStation 3. Images of their game, which leaked over the weekend, have added further evidence to this claim.
One image shows Sweet Tooth from the Twisted Metal. Another makes reference to Kratos from God of War.
"Our capture station and waiting area - Parappa [the Rappa] is a permanent resident," reads the Twitter page - now deleted - of the game's senior level designer Chris Molina.
Then, "Slam! Second level design pitch approved by our studio leads! Now onto Sony Santa Monica for a final green light."
And, in reference to Sony's eye-catching "Michael" advertisement, "New Sony Playstation commercial vaguely foreshadowing our soon to be announced title."
"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."
The Paul Gale Network, which first revealed the game, reports that Sweet Tooth is "one of the heavier fighters". The leaked image is of him 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".
Last week Sony told Eurogamer "we do not comment on rumour or speculation" when quizzed about the game.
The Paul Gale Network claims Title Fight features a number of Sony mascots, including Sly Cooper, Nathan Drake (Uncharted), Colonel Mael Radec (Killzone) and Fat Princess.
There is, apparently, a Sandover Village stage (from Jak & Daxter), Hot Shots Golf characters in stage backgrounds, a LittleBigPlanet stage and a Buzz! trivia mini-game. A James Bond character is also mentioned.
James Bond may make an appearance because, according to The Paul Gale Network, of "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)".
SuperBot Entertainment is confirmed to be working on a "very amazing PS3 game" for Sony Computer Entertainment America.
SuperBot's website describes the company as "an exclusive developer of Sony Computer Entertainment America" and reveals it is "currently in production of a yet-to-be announced PS3 title".
