Sony Prepping Its Own Smash Bros. Title

Title FightEveryone loves a good crossover.  Nintendo struck gold with its Super Smash Bros. franchise in which the company's biggest and most favorite characters appeared together to pound each other into the ground in the name of fan service and good fun.  Now there's a rumor spinning that Sony is looking to get in on the Smash action with its own character crossover fighting extravaganza that would bring the likes of Uncharted's Nathan Drake, Twisted Metal's Sweet Tooth, Sly Cooper, and a variety of other PlayStation characters together under the working name of Title FightHere's GamesRadar with the story.

Sony may be close to announcing a Super Smash Bros-esque ensemble fighter for PS3, according to reports culled from inside sources and wayward tweets. The game, codenamed Title Fight, is rumored be in development by SuperBot Entertainment and star the likes of Twisted Metal's Sweet Tooth, God of War's Kratos, Uncharted's Nathan Drake, Sly Cooper, and Jak and Daxter.

Early details of the unconfirmed game first popped up on the Paul Gale Network site at the beginning of November. According to Gale's contacts, the fighter will play much like Nintendo's Super Smash Bros series in that it will pit a collection of Sony's most famous mascots against each other amidst interactive environments inspired by each character's home franchise, such as the 'Sandover Village' from Jak & Daxter. Other PS3 celebrities rumored to be making an appearance are Parappa the Rappa, Fat Princess, and Killzone's Colonel Mael Radec.

I'm surprised that Sony hasn't pursued this before now, but good things are worth the wait.  I'd love to see what comes of this project if it goes all the way.  Let's see Ratchet & Clank characters such as the title stars, Captain Qwark, and Dr. Nefarious in there somewhere along with LittleBigPlanet's Sackboy, inFamous's Cole MacGrath and Zeke, Sly Cooper's Bentley, Murray, & Inspector Fox, and the ModNation Racers driver.  Add some fun music remixes, stages based on familiar locations, and crazy items & weapons for the full experience.  Yes, I think there's definitely something worth pursuing here.
