PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale adds Metal Gear Solid's Raiden
For the second time in as many days, a new character was added to PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.
Raiden, from Metal Gear Solid, was revealed today in a video posted on GameSpot.
Described as a "up-close, combo-based character", Raiden excels at isolating a single character and doing a lot of combos. Lead game designer Seth Killian explained that Raiden is "good at air juggling and air combos", meaning once he gets you in the air he will do massive damage, and generate a lot of of energy from it.
While most level 3 Supers transform the actual player, Raiden's Level 3 transforms the state of his opponents. The level 3 Super traps all of the other players under boxes, allowing Raiden to basically wreak havoc among them. In addition, Raiden also has three or four dozen moves (combos included) while most of the other characters generally have about two dozen moves.

Yesterday, Sony announced Evil Cole MacGrath would also be an addition to the PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale roster.
