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!

Honestly I feel Aya Brea from the Parasite Eve series should be in this game.

She would be perfect for a game like this with all of her special abilities.

First thing is. Come on there has to be a Vita version for this too. If not Sorry sony but I don’t believe you guys are being serious.
NOW. My suggestion on a few characters
Crash Bandicoot
Spyro
Dr. Naferious
Ratchet
Jak
Max (Dark Cloud 2)
Monica (Dark Cloud 2)
Nathan Drake
Lightning
Cloud Strife
Zidane Tribal
Sora

well those are the ones I really want that sounds reasonable and possible

The game looks great!. I’ve always wanted to play a fighting game with all of Sony’s iconic characters. I really hope that Sackboy is in this.

+ Link01 on April 27th, 2012 at 7:18 am said:

Sold. Please say there is a Vita versions and the ps3 versions supports 3D… Also, lets get that roster :D


111

+ Elvick_ on April 27th, 2012 at 7:19 am said:

Spyro and Crash Bandicoot must be in it. Make it happen. Lara Croft would be nice too.

I know they’re 3rd party and multiplatform now, (Lara always was with PC) They were still a big part of PlayStation though. Wouldn’t feel right without them.

And the name is lame. The fan-name ‘PlayStation X-Over Chaos’ is better, and it used the x, o, triangle and square in the title. It was clever. This title isn’t clever, and it’s too long.

This game is going to be EPIC one character that I’d like to see Spector from Ape Escape that would rock!

Sony doesn’t own either the Crash or the Spyro franchises, so don’t expect to see those (unless Vivendi/Universal, or whoever they are now, allows it).

There are still plenty of 1st party characters, though– Jen and Scree from Primal. Rau and Tati from The Mark of Kri. The supporting characters from Sly Cooper (Bentley and Murray) and Ratchet & Clank (Qwark, Nefarious). Gabe Logan from Syphon Filter. Captain Blasto from Blasto. The Ape Escape monkeys. Tag from ModNation Racers. Sir Daniel from MedEvil. And you can’t have PaRappa without Um Jammer Lammy!

For 3rd party characters, I’d like to see Azrael from Soul Reaver, Ezio Audirtore from Assassin’s Creed, and Jill and Chris from Resident Evil. But since those are all more “realistic”, what about the King of all Cosmos from Katamari? Or Gex the Gecko, Croc, Tak, Vexx, and the main characters from Sphinx or Haven?

There are plenty of long dead PlayStation “platformer” franchises–heck, I bet that Punky Skunk, Jersey Devil and Roscoe McQueen: Firefighter Extreme aren’t busy right now!


117

+ Elvick_ on April 27th, 2012 at 7:23 am said:

Other characters I’d like.

Anyone from Wild Arms series.
Anyone from Legend of Dragoon.
Nariko and Kai from Heavenly Sword.
Anyone from Folklore
Kat from Gravity Rush/Daze
The kid from Sorcery.
Um Jammer Lammy

A thatgamecompany character, with the appearance of the wanderer from Journey with abilities that harken to flOw and Flower. That’d be so win…

You’ve got reference LocoRoco. You’ve got reference to Patapon already. Need Japan Studios other awesome series on the PSP.

+ DaneXDacaZ on April 27th, 2012 at 7:25 am said:

Please add Ratchet and Clank, Cole and maybe Jack and Daxter


119

+ Emill_1214 on April 27th, 2012 at 7:34 am said:

This game has to have a Final Fantasy character (Cloud), Leon from RE, Tomba, Solid Snake, Altair, and Dante to name a few. I think it would also be funny/cool to see the Hero from 3D Dot Game Heroes, 3D 8 Bit action!


120

+ MadMeat001 on April 27th, 2012 at 7:39 am said:

The inclusion of Parrapa is amazing, and Ill be honest it looks alot like Super Smash Bros so I’d like you guys to focus on the rough side of it. such as the single player being boring and repetitive cause all the players want is to unlock the trophy and unlock other character I think there should be elements making it fun.
Tough I’d like for.
Daxter (Jak and Daxter)
Spike (Ape Escape 1)
Tomba
and Pursuit Force making a fun cameo.
and maybe Spyro as how he appears in the first game.

+ PAINPAS on April 27th, 2012 at 7:41 am said:

I am happy that this is being developed because the roster seems to be catering to everyone in a real way. Now my only problem is that there MAY be a lack of females in this game. Nairuko and Kai are the only givens. Elena and Chloe could be Drake assists instead of full on characters. So Legend of Dragoon has some ladies like Shana and Rose…. also Dart in this game would be cool. Celia from Wild arms would be cool too and use the Alter code art with her original abilities. Actually the whole wild arm cast would be good for this game. Dark clould 2 Max and Monica should be in the game. Rogue Galaxy Kisala and Lilika also Jaster and Segram should be considered. Lammy should be their. If Crash and Coco could be there… somehow…. that would be cool. KAT from Gravity Rush cross promotion at E3 for the game DEFINITELY COOL. Ellen from Folklore would be amazing in this game… Vita Folklore port too…… please! Vita is the perfect platform to rerelease the game. I digress… This is just to show that you do not have to pay third parties to boost the female side of the roster.

What about Harry mason from silent hill and the guy from dead nation that’d be great if I can play as one of those. The concept looks very intriguing I hope I can see more in the coming days…


123

+ Quokimbo on April 27th, 2012 at 7:51 am said:

I think this should be a Play, Create, Share title. You know…Like LBP and MNR! Custom head to toe character creation, sweet map creation, and even modification of the existing characters provided?

I’ve been wanting this game for a long time, and from the second I saw it, I loved it. I’m sold. I hope there’s a large roster, but am open to characters being released as DLC.

My wishlist:
Ratchet & Clank (combined and separate), Captain Qwark, and Dr. Nefarious
A Chimera
Bentley, Murray
Cole, Zeke
Jak & Daxter (combined and separate)
Nathan Drake
Sackboy
Nariko, Kai
Monkey (Enslaved)
Wanderer
Crash
Spyro
Rayman
Jade (Beyond Good & Evil)
Isaac Clarke
Big Daddy
Shank
Amadeus, Zoya & Pontius from Trine (swappable)
Alice (Madness Returns)
Eddie Riggs
Kevin Butler

Plus any other traditional fighting game characters could be cool.

This looks fun, i bet money they wont hit the character roster we all want but who gives a crap.It is what it is, a brawler. I’ll be happy just that sweet tooth is already there.

My far out and completly unrealistic idea for a character you ask????

Well…i’d like to see the summoner from Eye of Judgment, ALOT of free room with that idea. 1stparty? I dont even remember, lol.

+ jony_dols on April 27th, 2012 at 8:00 am said:

Sir Daniel Fortesque

If Parappa the Rapper has made it in, then it would be ridiculous not to include a PSOne & PSP icon!
He’s a friggin undead Knight with a massive arsenal of handheld weapons, who would be perfect for a brawler game!

If he ain’t in it. Then I ain’t buying.


129

+ rafael_martines on April 27th, 2012 at 8:01 am said:

Is this game a copy of Smash Brothers? Maybe… But Nintendo always lives of same characters, Mario, Luigi, Kirby, Link… looking at the commentaries… we can see how big are the characters that made his own history in Playstation Family

Tekken born in Playstation, MediEvil, Gex, Parappa, Resident Evil, Metal Gear Solid, Uncharted, God of War, Spyro the Dragon… and some other franchises become known and get a great sucess when became a playstation game, Final Fantasy, Street Fighter, MegaMan.

Can’t wait for play this game :D

This game needs…

Sir Daniel Fortesque (MediEvil)
Gex (Gex Enter The Gekko)
Leon (Resident Evil 2)
Claire (Resident Evil 2)
Nathan Drake (Uncharted)
Spyro (Spyro The Dragon)
X (MegaMan X)
Ryu (Street Fighter)
Chun-Li (Street Fighter)
Jin (Tekken)
Paul (Tekken)

:D

MMMMMMMM ….. very similar to Nintendo Smash!


132

+ PAINPAS on April 27th, 2012 at 8:05 am said:

The only Third party characters needed would be Snake, Sephiroth, Cloud, Aeris, Tifa, Zack, Dante, Kazuma Kiryu, Sonic, Tomba, Klonoa, SADLY Crash and Spyro. Hopefully, Squall, Rinoa, Vivi, Zidane, Princess Garnet and Steiner. Maybe Tidus, Luna, Balthier and Fran. Any characters from all HD Sony collections will be in the game so no need to mention the obvious 3 mascots from PS2 platformers and Nathan, Sackboy, Hale and Cole universes and cohorts will be there. Kratos … OBVIOUSLY. Radec is an AWESOME choice so happy with that one. Sweet tooth was a no-brainer too unique and cool looking and truly iconic to Sony history yet…….. PaRappa FTW.


133

+ PAINPAS on April 27th, 2012 at 8:06 am said:

Tekken characters Kazuya and Nina should be there. A battle arena toshiden character would be AWESOME.


134

+ eviLucky on April 27th, 2012 at 8:06 am said:

My favorite characters to be in this would definitely be:

Kratos (God of War, already confirmed)
Dante (Devil may Cry 1-4)
Cloud (Final Fantasy VII)
Tifa (Final Fantasy VII, as an addition to the female cast :P)

perhaps even Sephiroth?

Characters from games like Assassins Creed would be awesome as well, however these have never been Playstation-exclusive, so they might not fit in to the “Playstation All-Stars” – idea…


135

+ BRRPPPPPPPPPPPPP on April 27th, 2012 at 8:08 am said:

the boss will be from a playstation exclusive I think its will be and should be Sephiroth as he has the most influence and gameplay variety but here are the other possibillties -

Final Fantasy VII – Sephiroth

Tekken- Hehachi OR Kazuya

Metal Gear Solid- Psycho Mantis

God of War- Zeus

Resident Evil- Albert Wesker

Devil May Cry- Vergil

Hah! I can’t wait! It is unfortunate that a lot of Nintendo gamers are crying copy. Everything is influenced by everything else. This is just the start of a new genre I would say. The smashbuttonfighter genre? I mean, look at all the fps? We need more games like Allstars and SSB. I can’t wait. This looks like tons of fun. Kratos and Sly going at it? C’mon! Who wouldn’t wanna try that out?

+ NotoriousGamer on April 27th, 2012 at 8:15 am said:

1st party i wanna see: hale from resistance, cole from infamous, drake, a gran turismo avatar or guy in a car shape outfit, ratchet, helghast

I definitely agree that they should include more PS one & PS2 characters:

Daniel Fortesque (Medievil),
Jak & Daxter,
Templar (from KZ1)
Wander (Shadow of Colossus)
Cloud (FF)

If Parappa & the Fat Princess have made the the cut, then they deserve to make it in.

Hi Omar!

Welcome to the PSBlog! Just letting you know this game is a day 1 buy for me. You have my vote :) As some of the other posters pointed out I would love to see a Vita version with cross-play as well. But perhaps more than anything, I would love to see this game as a DAY 1 release on the PSN. If any game would be nice to be able to instantly load up from your hard drive it would be this one. Plus think of all the dollars you would retain from people not being able to sell their copies to evil game reseller stores (wink). So please pass it along and consider it. Good work so far!

Agree with others that it needs a shorter, more snappy name.

Some characters that could be fun:

* Origami Killer, or one of his origamis (Heavy Rain)
* Pyramid Head (Silent Hill)
* Catherine
