Characters announced so far include Kratos (God of War), Parappa the Rapper, Sweet Tooth (Twisted Metal), Colonel Radec (Killzone), Sly Cooper, and Fat Princess, with more characters to be revealed later in the year. The game is being developed by SuperBot Entertainment, a new independent company under Sony that sports people who helped out make such games as the recent Mortal Kombat reboot and UFC Undisputed.
