The absurdity of whether or not you can actually exploit fictional characters aside, Sony announced the release of a new Playstation Move exclusive title today, called Playstation Move Heroes. The new cross-over title brings together three of the Playstation brand’s biggest franchises – Jak & Daxter, Ratchet & Clank and Sly Cooper – and stuffs the heroes, and Bentley, together to compete against each other in the “Inter-Universal Hero Games”. But there is actually a story that evolves from that featuring an alien duo who are threatening the galaxy, at which point the six have to band together as a team.

Playstation Move Heroes includes over 50 missions featuring various challenges and includes a local two-player cooperative mode which allows friends to play as the duos. It’s available for $39.99 USD/CAD or in a Playstation Move Software Bundle, including a Playstation Eye camera and one Move controller, for $99.99 exclusively at participating Toys’R’Us stores. And before I get into a rage about how ridiculous I think that bundling, or the fact that the game is just a way to exploit the popularity of those franchises to promote Playstation Move, are, I’ll just suggest you check out this trailer and forge your own opinion.
