New PlayStation All-Stars Join the Battle February 12th, Free for Two Weeks

PlayStation All-Stars: Kat

Yo! I’m excited to finally announce that our first wave of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale DLC will be available February 12th. Here’s what to expect.

Kat graces PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale with her presence, as an up-close melee fighter who utilizes her ability to manipulate gravity to turn the tide in battle. Players who enjoyed Gravity Rush on PS Vita know that Kat loves to bend gravity to allow her to dash, slide, and fly from one place to another, and her All-Stars incarnation is no exception. Those who enjoy AP burst combos and varied mobility will definitely gravitate towards Kat.

Emmett Graves from Starhawk joins the fray! He brings his signature “Build & Battle” style from Starhawk, calling down different structures to aid him in battle, including Rift Extractors for AP and Flak Turrets that fire at will. Aside from his default rifle and pistol, Emmett can also call for additional weaponry in the form of shotgun and rocket launcher loadouts, allowing him to adapt to any situation. These loadouts will also change his level 1 super, giving him a total of five supers to choose from!

PlayStation All-Stars: Emmett

Rest assured that these DLC characters will be getting the same treatment the rest of our cast was given, including updated official website pages with moves and bios, alternate costumes, Arcade Mode cutscenes, Trial Modes, and more.

Our newest level, Fearless — a mash-up between Heavenly Sword and Wipeout — will also be available to purchase in February. Please note that purchasing Fearless will allow you to select the stage offline and in non-ranked lobbies, while those who choose not to purchase it can still enjoy it in ranked games online.

Kat and Emmett will be available to download February 12th, and will be free for the first two weeks, so mark your calendar and get them as soon as possible! We’re not stopping there though. We still have some more All-Stars on the way, so keep your eyes peeled in March for more info!

Will they come with costume changes and unlockable minions?
More importantly will they have story and trophies?
I would love Kat in her School Girl costume although she’d look adorable in any of her selections. I’m going to assume that if she is given a level 10 unlock able costume it’ll be the catsuit..

This is Awesome but I’m Hoping to see:
Scorpion – Mortal Kombat
Ryu Haibusa – Ninja Gaided
Snake – Metal Gear
Goku – Dragon Ball

And for future PS All-Stars games an actual story mode not just and arcade mode

I can’t wait to download and play as these characters and I seriously hope they’re for free for the Vita version as well. I hope they don’t do what they did with the costume pack where I had the code for the alternate costumes yet it couldn’t be downloaded with the Vita and I had to buy the entire pack again just to use them. That was kinda a low blow.

Will they be added to the intro as well? And can we get a hint to the others, if you’ve decided who they’re gonna be?

I bought my PS Vita just a few days ago but i own PS All-Stars since last year and I was able to sync the save on PS3 and PS Vita but I couldn’t sync the trophies! Is it happening to everyone?

+ kironohasama on January 22nd, 2013 at 2:22 pm said:

Now what i wonders is if you download the characters while they’re free, do you have to pay for them after the 2 weeks to continue using them?


63

+ GENERAL421 on January 23rd, 2013 at 7:34 pm said:

Oh yea thats cool 2 new characters but umm you forgot someone CRASH BANDICOOT!!!! He should have been a default character. And if I remember correctly he was PlayStations 1st Star!!

+ WolfBoy1248 on January 23rd, 2013 at 8:40 pm said:

What would be awesome if they added Sora from the second kingdom hearts so he can have two key blades

Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale is good, but if Crash bandicoot made it in this will be a perfect game

I’ve saw in a couple posts about the DLC that people want Cloud. I’ll get a lot of hate for this, but please… Do NOT add Cloud… If you want a FF character, there’s plenty of others to choose from :/
I can’t stress this enough… Please, don’t ever add Cloud…

Wait so when you download the new patch on feb 12 for Kat and Emmett you can have them forever or only for 2 weeks?

Hi, SuperBot Entertainment! First of all, I just ant to say thank you for the wonderful game. Lastly, I just want to recommend –possibly– make a robot character. You know, since you’re SuperBot Entertainment… So yeah, just a recommendation.

they should put Alex Mercer from prototype and the original dante from devil may cry 3 (would be awesome ) with his brother virgil to (the original virgil) that would be really cool

+ shelbster8 on February 4th, 2013 at 2:40 pm said:

Listen people, the reason they didn’t put Spyro The Dragon or Crash Bandicoot in the game is because they aren’t allowed to!
Activision currently holds the rights to both icons. Sony couldn’t get the approval from them, mainly because if they did put classic Spyro and Crash in the game, people would start thinking that Activision is remaking classic Spyro. So don’t get mad at them. Instead, currently bug Activision and continue asking them to give them permission.

Until Dart from Legend of Dragoon appears, I’m not sure that I’ll buy it. I would love to kick ass as my favorite character of all time and since it was a PS1 exclusive it shouldn’t be that hard to do. Also, PLEASE MAKE A SEQUEL TO LoD! :D I know that’s not going to happen though.

I know that it’s probably asking for too much but I am hoping that they bring back some of the classic characters that built the Playstation into what it is today. Crash Bandicoot really would be a good choice along with Abe from Abe’s Odyssey or maybe the Stranger.

The main reason why I want Dart is because he is probably the most suitable character for a fighting game. The level one special could be a quick change into his Dragoon form and him using the Explosion spell. Level two could be an extended Dragon Spirit change letting you fly around for a while and use a couple of spells. Lastly, the level three special should enable you to use the Divine Dragon Spirit and wreak havoc with the Divine Dragon Cannon.

Awesome that these character will be free for download. Kinda lame though that the stage of Heavenly Sword and WipEout isn’t free while Sony previously mentioned that it was. Can’t complain to much though for getting free stuff after all. :)

+ AkatsukiGaara57 on February 6th, 2013 at 7:36 pm said:

I have a few request although i know its unlikely but is there a slight possibility classic dante can be added as a new character (not a costume for new dante) and hoping for crash and Spyro i grew up with them ever since ps1

+ Forte_Cannon on February 9th, 2013 at 2:20 pm said:

Are these guys gonna be free for keeps or are they just gonna be a trial until the two weeks are over?

if you had the game pre-ordered will you get pre order costumes for them?

wait so by free for two weeks do they mean you get to have these characters free for two weeks or you have two weeks to get these characters free?
