See PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale in Action

Omar Kendall's Avatar + Posted by Omar Kendall on Apr 26, 2012 // Game Director, SuperBot Entertainment

Today marks a special day for us here at SuperBot Entertainment, as we finally get to share our game with the world! PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale existed as an idea in the hearts of gamers way before SuperBot got around to making it, and the expectations of the fans are really what drive us. This game is a labor of love, and we’re excited to be able to finally show it — learn more in our new video interview above.

PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale

So what is PlayStation All Stars Battle Royale? First and foremost, it’s a celebration of a storied history of great characters and rich worlds brought together in one game. And for us, there’s no better way to celebrate than by creating an experience that players can sit around one screen and enjoy together. There are probably a few types of games that can be enjoyed by four players simultaneously, but for us at SuperBot, a brawler was the obvious choice for one really good reason: the developers here at SuperBot really like fighting games. We love playing them and we love making them. With PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, we set out to make an experience accessible enough for all PlayStation fans to enjoy while also creating something deep enough for the serious fighting game aficionado. We think this “accessible yet deep” strategy is the perfect way to bring PlayStation fans of all stripes together.

The game features a number of cool game modes for both single and multiplayer, with a focus on online play which features a robust tournament mode. Players will be able to compete against each other as well as play cooperatively. We can’t wait for you all to try it for yourself.

Until then, please stay tuned; there are plenty more features, characters, and levels we want to show. And you definitely don’t want to miss what we’ve got in store for E3!

Do we get to play as Buzz? I really want to knock his wig off his head. I’d figure we’d see Nathan Drake, Heavenly Sword’s Nariko, Solid Snake, Krato’s brother and more? I’m glad you guys are bringing back older stuff like Pa Rappa, keep that up…don’t stop there.

Spike from Ape Escape. Or Spectre. Just not Jimmy. Okay, maybe I’ll even settle for Jimmy.

I don’t even care about 3rd party! Just get some Ape Escape love up in here.

OOOH and as i will copy paste a comment i made in the other post ok…

BTW i hope the name its a code name bc while it fits the game, its too long and not something memorable…. it needs to be something that gamers identify the game with just a word. Like Super Smash bros… friends say… lets play smash! u know quickly what it is. but PS AS BR its a little bit too long and a bit generic… just my 2 cents! make a contest on how to call the game! and take ideas from the community! :) LOVE U ALL!

Add a Yakuza character, maybe Kiryu or Majima (or even better, Akiyama), and it’s an instant buy for me.

Alright, I’m calling it right now on 27 April 2012. Superbot Entertainment, are you listening? Here goes. So Geoff asked you about a final boss and you said it was in the works. So, what’s more Sony or PlayStation than the father of PlayStation, Jack Tretton or Kaz Harai? THERE ISN’T! So, the final boss needs to be like them. BUT PLEASE! Don’t pull a ‘Mortal Kombat’ and make the boss so hard, that you have to play cheap to beat him. You know what I’m saying? Do an animated CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment either the Father, Jacky T., Kaz or Andrew House. THAT’D BE AWESOME!

Really though, Nintendo fans aren’t going to be happy. I’d be angry too if I were a big Nintendo fan. I wasn’t happy when Dante’s Inferno was multi-platform or Castlevania because that style and Hideo Kojima was always very pro PlayStation but, it takes away from Nintendo’s momentum: The Game being in HD and to the Core gamer.

I HOPE THIS IS GOING TO HAVE 3D SUPPORT!!!!

I love super smash and I have dreamed for this forever.

SuperBot if you are listening please add Kingdom Hearts characters, Demon’s Souls characters, and Spyro from PS1.(not the newer ones they suck)

I plan on preording the day I can.

+ Blkant on April 27th, 2012 at 12:52 am said:

I must know, will Daniel Fortesque from Medievil on PSOne be in this?


28

+ Gekidami on April 27th, 2012 at 12:54 am said:

The only real complaint i have and i’m seeing on forums is that the game looks washed out, like theres a grey filter constantly over the screen. The colours really need to be more vibrant, simply for gameplay reasons; You have trouble seeing whats going on when the camera zooms out when its washed out looking. I see that characters seem to have a glow around them to help you see where they are, make it look less washed out and you probably wont need that.

Otherwise, looks good, i hope the lineup is awesome, i really want characters from both old & new Sony games, including characters from less known franchises both western & Japanese.

I hoped that it will be like Crash Bash ( a mixture of mini games, battles, races, … ), but unfortunately it’s just a battle game (-_-).

Awwww yeah! Saw this coming a mile away and still got excited when it was announced. I’m pre-ordering this game tomorrow. Although, it is a long name. Why not shorten it to just Playstation All-Stars and then add extra titles as sequels come out. Battle Royale, Mayhem Massacre, Beyond Thunderdome etc.

Also, I hope there are more female characters besides Fat Princess (I’m shallow, I know). I want to see the Candle Maiden and Lightning Farron.

… yup. Still excited. ^_^

I’ll admit thisis a straight ssbb ripoff but dam do i want this game so bad.SSBB had terrible online gameplay so im sure ps3 will fix that and really looking forward to seeing more characters.
PLEASE HAVE NATHAN DRAKE/
or you could put the djnn characters from uncharted 3 on the game aswell.They would fit in just fine.


33

+ enjionPS on April 27th, 2012 at 1:07 am said:

Hmm.. don’t really care for too many of of the modern Sony stuff.

Rammy from Um Jammer Lammy
Sofia from Toshinden (she was an early mascot, look it up people)
PS1 Era Crash Bandicoot
PS1 Era Spyro
Omega Boost
Cloud (Like FFVII or not, he is pretty damn important to the history of Playstation)
Claire Redfield (Game needs females)
Some Car from Gran Turismo
Hermie Hopperhead

Hopefully this turns out as fun as… that other game which this is clearly not taking any inspiration from whats so ever.

+ Taking_bs on April 27th, 2012 at 1:16 am said:

KIRYU KAZUMA would be PERFECT for this game. I want to see him burst into blue and red flames on the screen. I’d also like to see SOLID SNAKE/OLD SNAKE/ BIG BOSS on here too. CQC would be awesome to see along side his arsenal of weapons. AND I think ETHAN MARS from heavy rain would be HILARIOUS. I want him to shout “JASON~!!” and have the word project out of his mouth and cause damage. Even if he sucks at fighting, it’d be worth it to have him in the game just for that. AND NATHAN DRAKE and VICTOR SULLIVAN. Remember, it’s okay to have similar play styled characters. SSBB did it, and this is clearly similar. And this is me just throwing out more characters without really thinking about it: Dude from STARHAWK. Dude from Demon’s Souls. NARIKO and KAI from Heavenly Sword. MAX from Dark Cloud 2. Several Knights from White Knight Chronicles. ‘sall I got. I’m excited~!!

+ TalonsInTheNight on April 27th, 2012 at 1:22 am said:

I am excited, but there are a couple really nagging things.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE CHANGE THE TITLE OF THE GAME!
It sounds so cheap and unimportant. It makes me think of an EyeToy compilation game for the PS2 not the big blockbuster we want it to be. It does not carry the cool factor that characters like Nathan Drake and Kratos evoke. PLUS the logo for the current name is equally TERRIBLE and almost looks like it belongs on the packaging of some toy for toddlers.

The white glow/outline really detracts from the game. I understand why it’s there but it makes the characters look like cutouts on a backdrop and really breaks the immersion. At the very least give us the option to TURN IT OFF.

I don’t claim to have the perfect title for the game, but you need to go back to the drawing board on that one.

Here are some ideas. Let’s call it brainstorming. I’m a fan and I want this to be monumental; I hope I’m not alone.

Long Live Play (It’s off beat, but it could be perfect)
The Arena
Stake your Claim
Showdown
Battle Royale (I understand there may be legal issues with this one)
Battle Beyond (IGN nod)
Playstation Universe
BEEF (why not?)
