I really hope Aya Brea from Parasite Eve/The 3rd Birthday makes it into this game, i have successfully made it into an idea on blog share. She has been with the PS family since the PS1 days.

+ DZORMAGEN on July 5th, 2012 at 9:32 am said:

I enjoyed the hell out of this game at E3 this year. I am not even into fighting games, but this one is different. I hope you guys have a huge event in LA for the release of this game. Maybe even a special edition. I can’t wait till I hear what other characters are on the list. I am wishing for a huge list of Sony and 3rd party characters for this game!!


+ C_Dalke on July 5th, 2012 at 9:39 am said:

I’m really interested in PSABR, but it seems like a Smash Bros. ripoff with a few tweaked mechanics. They definitely need to show me something different to get me more excited. Big Daddy being playable definitely helped though.


+ Jon_Mclane on July 5th, 2012 at 9:42 am said:

yoooooo CLOCKWORK! aaaAAAaaa! will the exhibition matches have top known players from other games or will it be the devs? would love to see Justin Wong vs Daigo vs Combofiend vs Mike Ross :P

    Sorry for the late post Jon_Mclane! We had QA guys playing during our exhibition at EVO since they’re really familiar with the game. I’ve made it my mission to get good enough to defeat them (o’-‘)o


+ Level_Code on July 5th, 2012 at 9:43 am said:

YES! Only thing that’s going to make me turn on the Live stream! New characters and other surprises! Can’t wait! Then we’ll get even more a couple days later at Comic Con! Keep the announcements coming guys!


+ IceColdKilla44 on July 5th, 2012 at 9:45 am said:

Nice! This is easily my most anticipated game of the year, so I hope you guys deliver!


+ DZORMAGEN on July 5th, 2012 at 9:47 am said:

I think I know one of the characters will be Jak from Jak and Dexter….


+ Adelflame on July 5th, 2012 at 9:49 am said:

Yo clockwork! Gopt any news if evo will be streamed on Playstation home!

Btw Any chance you can get capcom to put strider on this game lol


+ Zezzler on July 5th, 2012 at 10:42 am said:

I can’t wait to hear more character announcements, stage announcements, single-player modes, multiplayer modes, and just MORE ABOUT THE GAME! I love these kind of 4-player style fighting games, and cannot wait to get my hands on it!

Until then though, keep up the great work over at SuperBot! I hope Seth Killian will provide massive insight and help towards the development of the game!


+ JMG24BAD on July 5th, 2012 at 10:46 am said:

characters i want in + features I want in :

Crash Bandicoot
Chole or Elena From the uncharted series
Nariko from Heavenly sword
Tomba from ps1 era

Features: Health Bar health bar health bar. Beating up on the worse character to build meter is a staple. BUT it gets dull after a bit. need more variation in the modes.

Chimera Hybrid plz sony :)


+ Rytteren on July 5th, 2012 at 10:54 am said:

come on sony blog team, stream or record this. PANEL: SuperBot Entertainment: Here Comes A New Challenger is somthing i would watch… but im from denmark EU… thats a loooooong flight :)


+ Phillyblunz on July 5th, 2012 at 11:02 am said:

@13 you are a genius!!!

I would love to see Nariko in this game.
Pick up enemies and throw them at other enemies via guided toss!!

How about Raiden from Metal Gear Solid? Actually MGS has lots of good ones, Snake, Rex, Vamp, Liquid, any of the chicks like the frogs, any of the female bosses would be fantastic.

The chimera from Resistance, give us an assortment from the big baddies with rockets to the standard guys.
A miniature version of the spider like boss would be epic.

So many ways to go and options to choose, should make for some long time DLC support hopefully.


+ Sonic-Boom on July 5th, 2012 at 11:10 am said:

i am already sold for this game
if i have any requests just bring sonic to the game that would make me even happier with the game
its already awesome and a must buy btw


+ D-Squad3 on July 5th, 2012 at 11:16 am said:

OMG NEW ALL-STAR TOMORROW! I can’t wait to find out who it is, PLEASE give us a Square-Enix character.

I’m guessing it’s probably gonna be Ratchet & Clank or Jak & Daxter.

+ Elvick_ on July 5th, 2012 at 11:49 am said:

Kat (Gravity Rush) has to be in this. If not, I’ll be so disappointed.

And it would be a good idea to release a demo well before release, because many are not sold on the gameplay. I’m sure it will be fun to PLAY, but so far it’s much less fun to actually watch be played. So you can’t really get a sense of if it’s fun, or gauge how fun it is. Because all we have is watching it, and watching people build up a meter to finally get a kill isn’t quite as exciting as other brawlers.

I bet once people are able to play it, then that doubt will disappear and people can actually begin to hype it without worry that it’ll be terrible.


+ johnnyp70 on July 5th, 2012 at 12:34 pm said:

How about Rungo or Sofia from Battle Arena; Toshinded? Or a Tekken character like Paul or Nina? Those are PSOne classics!


+ johnnyp70 on July 5th, 2012 at 12:35 pm said:

Darn, meant Toshinden. I hate spelling mistakes.


+ Ekisperto on July 5th, 2012 at 12:59 pm said:

Any chance there could be Ryu from SF or maybe Strider on it, ClockWork(Daniel)? Seeing Big Daddy from Bioshock in this game makes these things possible to happen now.


+ Figboy on July 5th, 2012 at 12:59 pm said:

I won’t be in Vegas this weekend, but I absolutely LOVED what I played of PBR at E3 this year.

I’m a huge Smash Bros fan, and this game, while in a similar genre of SSB, is really it’s own animal, and so much fun. I had a great time with it, and I’m dying to try it out again when it releases. I played the Vita and PS3 versions doing some cross play matches, and it worked excellently.

I’m not a big fighting game fan, but I love games like this, and I’m a huge PlayStation fan from way back. Even with the current roster, it tickled my PlayStation nostalgia bones, so I can’t wait to see the new character announcements this weekend (maybe some Jak and Daxter and Ratchet and Clank love?)


+ JumpMan33 on July 5th, 2012 at 1:32 pm said:

Played it E3, but I’ll be playing again at EVO. :)

BTW, I’m waiting on a BrokenTier X PSAllStars Shirt. Make it happen ClockW0rk :)

Stop asking for characters, they already have all the characters that will be at launch and will be revealing them over the time.

+ Heavenly_king on July 5th, 2012 at 9:10 pm said:

FFVII and MGS characters are going to be revealed most probably 1 month (or less) before launch in order to increase hype :D

I will buy it XD


+ DarkOne_PR on July 5th, 2012 at 9:26 pm said:

WOA! isnt about time SuperBot Show like at least 4 to 6 more characters and Modes? I mean… We all know Ratchet and clank, Jak and daxter, Cole and Sackboy are going in… but the real surprises characters… i understand that they will left them for the final show… but im kinda worried for the Exclusive roster of PS all Star Battle royal…. (AWFUL … SUPER AWFUL GENERIC NAME!!!!) bc they are announcing them too slow this game AT LEAST must own 20 exclusive ps characters… and the modes… oooh the modes… I Already decided im buying both games Vita and PS3 version if a bundle come like the MLB one…. but if theres not a stage out KO mode a la Smash…. sorry no buy for me.

Still Im very exited for Smash Station Royal since i was one of the ppl who was wishing for this game a looooong time

btw cloud MUST be in this.


+ DignifiedTuna on July 5th, 2012 at 9:42 pm said:

We’re getting two more character reveals at Comic-con, which is the weekend after this. So we have four characters getting shown very, very soon.


+ estoc1 on July 5th, 2012 at 10:21 pm said:

Oh goodie, just what I wanted….a Smash Bros..Rip-off with the most overrated and lamest video game characters in gaming history.


+ DarkOne_PR on July 5th, 2012 at 10:54 pm said:


Thats Kool! but they really need to step up! and the Modes!


Dude… sincerely STFU. We the PlayStation Community were the ones ASKING for a game like Smash to come to PS3 with our beloved characters…

And most overrated characters? for real? BC mario and luigui are not overrated and lame? Bc Master Chief its not overrated and SUPER lame? Drake its one of the most fully developed characters in gaming history and u say lamest? LMAO! GO F Urself Troll. If u dont like it and dont want it. dont enter their Blog Period.

Come back to me in twenty years and see if Drake is still remembered (IMO Drake is VERY overrated and lame, just like Kratos from GOW and Cole from Infamous). I betcha he’s going to be forgotten while Mario and Luigi will be around.

Again, this game is nothing more than a Smash-Bros Rip-off with forgettable characters. I’ll be more impressed if Sony and SECA starts to get more SNK Playmore stuff rather than overrated 3D cinematic garbage.


+ DarkOne_PR on July 5th, 2012 at 11:58 pm said:


LOL! of course! if u are still alive that is.

Bc going to the same castle for over 25 years to rescue the princess for the X1000 time its not lame and overrated. LMAO! Everyone remembers mario bc thats the start up icon in Video Games along with Pac Man.

but still U talk about lame characters but still talks about SNK? ROTFFLMFAOCOPTER! trow urself over a cliff will ya?

“Rather than overrated 3D cinematic garbage”
LOOOOOOL! O my! Go play ur NES and BLAM! case resolve! U get ur krappy A$$ graphics u desire and get stuck on the past my friend. simple as that! XD

Oh btw: Keep calling this game a rip off all u want bc.. THATS WHAT IT IS! no body its trying to hide it nether deny it! u know why? BC it was US the COMMUNITY (in which ur not counted bc ur re.tar.ded) That ASKED for a RIP OFF of Smash bros but the Sony Version. Simple to understand right? wait no? ooh right u r too to understand that.


+ DarkOne_PR on July 6th, 2012 at 12:03 am said:

SuperBot I agree with “rytteren”.

Post a weekly Post of ” Here Comes a New challenger” and show off with him in a video all his moves! (save the Specials)

U can do that too to unveil new modes… like …*cough* StAgE OuT! *cough* for example… :)


+ DeadKillersRevng on July 6th, 2012 at 12:13 am said:


Mario and Luigi are only well known because Nintendo keeps making new games for them every year because they can’t come with new franchises and they know that most of Mario games sell well, specially among the kids. Sony, on the other hand, has never overused any franchise so much as Nintendo because they know that their audience is not full of people that like the same thing over and over again with a story that doesn’t makes sense (Mario games) and instead provide us with games with a nice story and unique experience (Just like the ones that you mentioned Uncharted, God of War, Infamous and others).

Also, this game isn’t a Smash rip-off at all. That game could have been an inspiration, but in the end, most of current games have been inspired by others. You shouldn’t judge a game if you haven’t played it; and you clearly haven’t because if you had you would know that the game-play is very different.


+ R-O-Ofaliss on July 6th, 2012 at 12:41 am said:

Why are you guys arguing over who is the most overexposed characters in gaming. They pretty much all are.

I’m personally bored of Nathan, Kratos, Mario, Link, etc. Which is why I’m going to have as much fun slapping Nathan around, as I do slapping Mario around.

Well, that depends on if the combat system changes between now and when the game releases. As much as I would (hopefully) like to use Kat to make Kratos my B word, I’m not too fond of the combat system.


+ Spyro123-4ever on July 6th, 2012 at 3:17 am said:

Two new characters are probably (I hope) Crash and Spyro.

+ SLEEPLESS_KNIGHT on July 6th, 2012 at 11:58 am said:

In addition to the characters already announced and assuming they’ll want to at least match the amount of characters in SSB, I’d guess these 18 more are pretty likely:

Solid Snake
Cole McGrath
Sack Boy
Nathan Hale
Heihachi Mishima (from Tekken)
Leon (from Resident Evil)
Lara Croft (from Tomb Raider)


+ Richter_ak-47 on July 7th, 2012 at 1:57 am said:

How many super smash brother has beat em ups are we going to make before we screw the entire genre up? Cartoon network even did a total flop on the concept that seemed fun until you play it. I’m honestly worried to see anyone i like in this game in case it’s a flop as well…in all reality most games that look really awesome tend to let you down eventually. Sad but true lol So hopefully im way off and this becomes another awesome installment in the brawler saga.
