73w ago - Sony Santa Monica Studio Lead Game Designer Seth Killian has shared some video footage today spotlighting the new PS All-Stars Zeus & Isaac, MediEvil + The Unfinished Swan level below.

To quote: Happy to be back to tell you about some new surprises from PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. More costumes? More minions? Well, okay, yes. But also more new characters!

Our newest challengers are Isaac Clarke from Electronic Arts' [Register or Login to view links], and Zeus from... well, from some of the foundational myths of Western society, but also from a little PlayStation game you might know called [Register or Login to view links] by SCEA Santa Monica Studio.

How did these two emerge as All-Stars from the vast PlayStation multiverse? Synchronicity. We were talking with some friends over at EA who were hard at work on Dead Space 3, and with a lot of Dead Space fans on our team and all the cool tools at Isaac's disposal, some quick concepts emerged and we knew he'd be a great addition.

We've also wanted to add another "heavy," hard-hitting character into All-Stars (Big Daddy was getting lonely), and with all the work on God of War: Ascension around Sony Santa Monica, Zeus emerged as a perfect fit.



 

Sony Goes Behind The PS One / PS2 Classics with MediEvil

98w ago - Following up on their previous lookback, today Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton goes behind the PS One / PS2 Classics with the popular MediEvil PlayStation video game.

To quote: The second entry in our Behind the Classics series is a real lost gem - SCE Cambridge Studios' wild, wacky supernatural adventure MediEvil.

First released on PSOne back in 1998, it put you in the shoes of Sir Daniel Fortesque - an undead knight unwittingly reanimated by the evil sorcerer Zarok who embarks on a quest to liberate the kingdom of Gallowmere.

A sequel followed in 2000, with a PSP remake also popping up on PSP in 2005, however, it's the original game that remains most embedded in the memory.

With Sir Dan soon to enjoy a comeback of sorts as a playable character in PlayStation All Stars Battle Royale, we sat down with original designer Chris Sorrell to find out more about the game's development.

PlayStation.Blog: What was the original concept for the game? Did you draw inspiration from anywhere in particular for the game's look and feel?

258w ago - Today GamesRaid (linked above) has uncovered a recent [Register or Login to view links] for Sony Cambridge that seeks an Adobe Flash Animator.

Although the listing states simply 'an unannounced PS3 title' speculation has led to one series the studio is well known for, namely MediEvil 3 for PlayStation 3.

Perhaps they need the employee for an official Web site for this currently unannounced title? Time will tell...

To quote: A recent job listing for Sony Cambridge reveals how the studio requires an Adobe Flash Animator to 'apply [their] skills on an unannounced PS3 title'. Applicants are required 'to have top Flash design and Flash animation skills' for the contract job.

SCE Cambridge are currently working on LBP PSP as well as future revisions of Play TV, and now it seems they may also be working on a new PS3 title.
