Nariko, Yorda Coming To Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale?

Stranger things have happened.

One thing the Super Smash Bros. series has failed to do during its illustrious history is to have an even ratio of male and female fighters.

Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale could be set to rectify this issue, according to an eagle eyed NeoGAF poster who has spotted the potential reveal of two more femme fatales in Sony’s brawler.

The forum poster in question managed to snag a snapshot from the reveal video which heavily suggests that Heavenly Sword’s heroine Nariko will feature in the upcoming title. Not only that, but if you squint really hard at the same picture you can also spot what looks like Princess Yorda from Ico.

Definitive proof or just little squiggles? You decide.

    Definitive proof. You can all relax now. But where’s Cole Phelps?! Surely he’s gonna be a character?!

    Yorda, really? Hmmm.

    I probably would have picked Ico or the Queen. Yorda doesn’t really do anything.

    I’m hopeful for a Colossus stage.

      Wow, hadn’t even considered that, but now I think you’ve piqued my interest for this.

    I started replaying Heavenly Sword a few days ago – beautiful looking game and i had forgotten how awesome (but a bit hard) the fighting was! Nariko is a brilliant choice …. but Yorda..? Ico would make more sense although i probably wouldn’t have picked him for a fighter either.
    Rumour has it the next character to be revealed is the traveler from Journey.. or possibly the petals from flower.. :/

    i hope Yorda is a bit more capable than she is in Ico.

    Seems a little odd to include a character that only moves if you hold her by the hand or call her name…

      That’s still better than the Fat Princess on paper…

        I can see the comical effect of getting beat up by a fat princess and the game was funny. Ico is serious so the comical angle isn’t working. I actually think the picture shows part of a level where you can see Yorda… maybe…
        Anyways, I want Rayman!

        Could be a background character…
        Also, that screen isn’t from any trailer, it was from the leaked stuff back on November. Its just now that someone put 2 and 2 together regarding Yorda.
