Raiden Confirmed for Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale

Known as the man who went from a whiny little brat to one bad-ass cyborg robot, Metal Gear Solid’s Raiden leaves his surroundings and joins the cast of Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale. This is probably one of the more suitable characters for the upcoming Smash Bros. inspired fighter as his nimbleness and swordsmanship blends well with all-out combat.

With Dante, Raiden and Heihachi Mishima, the third-party characters have been properly chosen and are coming in strong. As of now, the entire cast is actually looking very appealing, offering a strong variety who, we hope, would balance each other out nicely. While not everyone has been announced, the selection of playable contestants is already massive:

  • Kratos – God of War
  • Cole MacGrath – inFAMOUS
  • Evil Cole MacGrath – inFAMOUS
  • Colonel Radec – Killzone
  • Nathan Drake – Uncharted
  • Jak and Daxter – Jak and Daxter
  • Ratchet and Clank – Ratchet & Clank
  • Sackboy – LittleBigPlanet
  • Sly Cooper – Sly Cooper
  • Fat Princess – Fat Princess
  • Parappa – PaRappa the Rapper
  • Sweet Tooth – Twisted Metal
  • Spike – Ape Escape
  • Toro Inoue – Together Everywhere!
  • Big Daddy – Bioshock
  • Dante – DmC Devil May Cry
  • Raiden – Metal Gear Solid Rising
  • Heihachi Mishima – Tekken

According to the leak last month, there are only two characters left to announce: Nariko from Heavenly Sword and Sir Daniel Fortesque from MediEvil.
