Leak or hoax?

New rumors have spread rampantly on PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. Hearsay may not hold a lot of weight when it comes to gaming, but pictures certainly do. If these images from Reddit and NeoGAF are correct, we now know a bevy of new characters and stages.

Over at Reddit, 696Ly released images that reveal Raiden (Metal Gear Rising), Dante (New Devil May Cry), Sackboy (Little Big Planet), Ratchet (Ratchet & Clank), Spike (Ape Escape), Sir Daniel Fortesque (MediEvil), and Nariko (Heavenly Sword). Evil Cole can also be found in these images but may just be an alternate costume.

A post on NeoGAF mentions artwork shown in the images posted on Reddit have already existed. What keeps the rumor mill going, however, are the images of unreleased stages. will keep you posted as more information becomes available.

Check out more screenshots below.

Fernando's POV: If this ends up being true, then Sony is definitely doing their best bringing out the heavy hitters. Of course all we would need now is Crash Bandicoot, Naughty Dog style. That didn't sound too good did it?
