PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale Public Beta This Fall

Chan Park's Avatar Posted by on Aug 02, 2012 // President, SuperBot Entertainment

PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale

Hey everyone! Last week, SuperBot Entertainment and PlayStation invited a small group of players to get a hands-on preview of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale as part of our early development beta. We’re beginning to test our servers and connectivity issues and this is just the beginning as we work toward rolling out a public beta to the entire PlayStation nation this Fall. As part of this exclusive access, players were able to take control of characters such as Kratos, Sweet Tooth, PaRappa the Rapper, Colonel Radec, Sly Cooper, and Fat Princess and battle in environments such as Dreamscape, Metropolis, Sandover Village, and Hades. The feedback we’re receiving from beta testers has been highly encouraging and valuable, helping us craft the best online multiplayer fighting experience possible.

In addition, there was an unexpected and unintended leak in our beta that allowed fans to be able to see some additional content. We’ve enjoyed reading all of the fan reaction and are thrilled that so many of you are excited to learn more about our character roster and level mash-ups, however we are still in development and the leaked content does not fully represent the final product nor the incredible efforts that were made to make these elements truly spectacular. This will be evident in the coming weeks as this content is officially revealed, beginning with our next character announcement at Gamescom in a couple of weeks.

While just a small group now, in the coming weeks we will continue to send out batches of codes as we gradually expand the beta; so keep your eyes open. You just might receive an invitation to join! Keep checking back with the blog for more information around the public beta, starting with early access to PlayStation Plus members.

If you’re having this much fun with the game now, we think you’re going to be thrilled with all the great stuff coming in the final product!

I really want ‘Crash’ + ‘Snake’ + ‘Lara’ in the game :P The true PS1 PlayStation classic characters(even tho Microsoft try to make out ‘Lara’ & ‘Snake’ are theirs now) :D


+ IcedDice777 on August 2nd, 2012 at 1:15 pm said:

I’m looking forward to this game! I preordered my copy awhile back. Please consider adding more PS1 characters, at least having making cameo appearances, Plus don’t forget MR. MOSQUITO fromclassic Ps2 days. After SuperBot and Sony are done counting the BiG bucks on those jammed packed Brink trucks…SuperBot should make a Playstation All Star Wrestling game! Do it before the competition takes the first stab at the All star wrestling genre. Than You

@Chan Park

I have been a member of the playstation family since the beginning and I wish some of the more obscure old first party hits get a say; Here’s just a few

Dart (The Legend of Dragoon)
Vahn (The Legend of Legaia)
Ramza (Final Fantasy Tactics)
Serge or Chrono (Chrono Trigger/Cross)
Raziel (Soul Reaver)
Musashi (Brave Fencer Musashi)
Ryu (Breath of FIre)
Adol (Y’s Series)
Alex (Lunar Series)
Megaman (Megaman Legends)
Eve or Eva (Parasite Eve)
Jowy (Suikoden 2)
Rudy (Wild Arms)
Fei (Xenogears)
KOS-MOS (Xenosaga)
Kite (.Hack Series)

I am a member of the family and just wish these relative would have a family reunion with our new brothers and sisters at Super Bot. Hopefully this post does not get overlooked and thanks for listening

I’m not really that interested in this game, but if Crash get’s to be in it, I will definitely buy a copy. I miss him so much.

Jezzzzz I want to try it out Hmmm I wounder if its as good as its cracked up to be!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Beta MEEEEEE


+ SnakeApprentice on August 2nd, 2012 at 1:49 pm said:

SUPERBOT, the game is looking excellent thus far. I have one thing to say, and hear me you must. Playstation has been around for a lot longer than the last 5 years. In fact, the last 5 years is just a small portion of Playstation”s history. Most of us have been here since the PS1. And to exclude characters like Spyro, Crash, and Snake, characters that carried Playstation for a long time, from a Playstation All-Star collection so you could fit in two versions of Cole, is grossly unnaceptable. Not to mention how insanely awesome it would be to control a flying, fire-breathing dragon

P.S. Is SuperBot going to disband after this game or will we hear from you again?

    We have not intention of disbanding.

All I want is Kazuma Kiryu. That would sell this game for me.

The Loco Roco and Patapon levels are my favourites so far.


+ Rammel29 on August 2nd, 2012 at 2:03 pm said:

I appreciate the hard work going in the game especially for you guys first developed game. I understand you guys won’t be able to please all with the selection of characters but I fully appreciate the effort you guys put into the game. This is a day one buy game for me!

I was disappointed when I heard about the info that leaked it would of been way better if Sony realsed them like all the other charaters now everyone knows what’s coming. I will be even more disappointed if I don’t get a beta code cuz my ps plus is going to be over next week :(

Can you speak as to wether PS All Stars will be a 1 time purchases in order to play on both the PS3 and Vita or if we will need to buy them on both platforms?

+ BriarPatch512 on August 2nd, 2012 at 3:30 pm said:

I don’t know if it’s already been addressed but will Playstation All-Stars be supported with cross game saves or is it just multiplayer? I’m very excited to pick up both versions!


+ harley2947 on August 2nd, 2012 at 3:32 pm said:

Thanks SuperBot Team for making this wonderful game, and especially standing up to the leak, I’m so excited for this game but I also hope we can expect more from what has been leaked like characters and such that. You guys are doing a terrific job, I play the Beta like nobodies business.

PS. You got my PS3 but once I get a Vita it’s showtime. Best game in the world!

    Thank you! Yes, X-play for All Stars is going to kick major butt!!


+ Augur2011 on August 2nd, 2012 at 3:35 pm said:

A couple more FEMALE characters please!
I like what I see so far, and hope to hear more soon!

My big character wishes
Nathan Hale (he would be an awesome addition of a fallen war hero :)
Seth Killian
Raziel (Soul Reaver)
Megaman (would be a big draw if you had him on the roster)
Kite, or His Doppelganger (.Hack Series)
Crash bandicoot (I know sony doesn’t own him, though they should)
Cloud (FF7)
Someone from Disgaea – could use other characters for supers, and Desco for level 3


+ Losing_Charlie on August 2nd, 2012 at 3:37 pm said:

So are you saying theres more characters then the ones that were leaked?

OH god please let this be true


+ Randinator-_001 on August 2nd, 2012 at 3:39 pm said:

i’ll be looking forward to this…. my plus subscription ends on september 27 so i hope the beta gets available before then. today is my 2nd anniversay as a ps3 owner yaayyy, best purchase i have ever done.


+ Bth_Portugal on August 2nd, 2012 at 3:42 pm said:

If this game doesn’t have Crash Bandicoot, I WILL NOT F***ING BUY IT!
Yes, the game looks awesome and all of that, but c’mon Sony (Naughty Dog especially) , DO SOMETHING, talk with Activision, please us, your fans and Crash Bandicoot’s and Spyro’s Fans!!!
No rapper will replace our beloved Bandicoot, I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHO IS THAT RAPPER!!!!

Mr. Park,

Not sure if this will be properly formatted, as I’m typing this in with my iPad, but I’ll try anyway. I have been allowed into the private beta, and I’ve been loving every bit of it. Seeing as it is a beta however, I was wondering if I should send an e-mail to superbot, regarding any bugs I may come across in my hands on time. I’m sure you want all the feedback you can get! Anyway, keep up the great work over at SuperBot, I’m super proud of you guys!

Joe DelFranco

P.S. I’ve already convinced at least 100 people to buy this game on day one!

+ Pukerat on August 2nd, 2012 at 3:46 pm said:

Please add Mel and/or Hot Shots Golf in this game! I’ve played HSG games since the PS1, and I’d be terribly disappointed if you didn’t consider giving it a fair chance to be in this PLAYSTATION All-Stars Battle Royale. As a Playstation gamer, I’d feel insulted if you allowed characters like Big Daddy and Fat Princess in this game without giving Mel and Hot Shots Golf a chance to make an appearance.

Also… would like to see more female characters. Consider some Final Fantasy characters, survival horror characters (Resident Evil, Parasite Eve, Silent Hill), and perhaps that girl from Folklore.

Earthworm Jim would be amazing, although I know that he isn’t really a Playstation character. I can still dream!

If I activate Plus at any point during the month Plus gets the beta, will I be to get into it too?

+ ryanrules125 on August 2nd, 2012 at 5:54 pm said:

Hello Chan. Im so glad you addressed the leak properly. Some development teams would freak out if this kind of thing happened. You guys just handled it like a pro. Good job Superbot! Also i cant wait for this beta. The game overall looks amazing so far. There are just some characters i would die for to be in this great looking game. At the top of my list is the Kingdom Hearts character, Sora. Since he already has fighting abilities he would be perfect for this game, slashing his keyblade at foes. Just consider him please. It would make the fans happy. Im looking very forward to this game.

Thank you,


+ Lara_Croft_GodHD on August 2nd, 2012 at 5:55 pm said:

i hope they add Lara Croft Elena Fisher Chioe Fraze Young Lara Croft Hanny Monna and a few others oh that evil laide from uncharted 3 i forgot her name


+ DiogoLouro on August 2nd, 2012 at 6:02 pm said:

Wow, didn’t think you guys were gonna confirm the leak. I’m really happy though, I love the roster so far!!! (including leak)
I’ll be counting the days until Gamescon, thanks for making this awesome game!


+ NauseousPenguin on August 2nd, 2012 at 6:09 pm said:

The only thing that can make this game any more exciting in my eyes, is Spyro the Dragon (Classic PS1 Design). The original Spyro trilogy was my introduction to PlayStation gaming, and it’s what made me a gamer in the first place. I can’t even put to words how excited I’d be if Spyro were to appear in this game! Even if that doesn’t happen, though, I’m still stoked about this game, and have already pre-ordered it for my Vita!


+ Figboy on August 2nd, 2012 at 6:09 pm said:

Just wanted to say thank you for inviting me to the beta last week! It’s been absolutely awesome, and I can’t wait for more people to be able to get their hands on it! It truly is a great, fun game!

I can’t wait for more character/stage/game mode reveals! This is truly one of my most anticipated games of this year! Probably my MOST anticipated game of this year!

While I’m here, I also wanted to say hurry up and finalize your plans for a PS3/Vita version bundle! I’m holding out pre-ordering the game, because I’d love to get both the PS3 and Vita versions for $80 (USD), like Sony did with MLB The Show!

I got to play the Vita version at E3 this year (as well as the PS3 version), and I was amazed at how awesome BluePoint has translated your game to the Vita! It looked and felt fantastic, and that was an E3 build! Can’t wait for the final version!

Hey Chan! Just want to say thank you so much to you and Superbot for making one of my childhood dreams come true :D I’ve been keeping up with all the latest on PSASBR and loving everything I have heard so far (now just keeping my fingers crossed for a beta code :P), cannot wait for the rest and keep up the great work guys.
