Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale Announced

Earlier this year there were a few rumors about a Super Smash Bros for Sony characters. After a recently released preview, those rumors seem to be true. Playstation All-Stars Battle Royal is exactly what it sounds like--Super Smash Bros with a layer of Sony characters sprinkled over the cake. From the gameplay videos and character roster, to the stages and gameplay mechanics, this game looks about like what you would expect if you took SSB and integrated Kratos and Sweettooth instead of Mario and Link.

SuperBot Entertainment has been given the proverbial key to the city and is throwing popular characters from many famous franchises. Already characters like Parappa the Rapper, Kratos, Sly Cooper, and Sweettooth have been shown off with different fighting styles and abilities. And just like SSB, each character will have a super special move that is flashy, damage-dealing, and awesome. The full character roster hasn’t been announced yet but I’m sure SuperBot will pull as many characters from a variety of franchises to make it as fun as possible. The stages will be a sort of mash up, with each stage drawing from two separate franchises. Think of a Titan from the God of War series trampling through a Little Big Planet world while fighting Sly and Parappa.

 If this sounds like a carbon copy of Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros with a layer of Sony --well it is, but I don’t think that makes it any less awesome or fun. Each character in PSASBR will have 3 special moves that are used through building up a power meter throughout the game. Similar to SSB, each character will have basic and advanced attacks that can be altered through using the directional pad. If SuperBot is following a very well laid out blueprint to a fighting game that Nintendo has laid out through the Super Smash Bros series, then let them use it and make an exciting fighting game with all the bells and whistles that go with putting Fat Princess and Kratos in the same room.

So far the announced Playstation All Stars Battle Royale Character Roster is:

Sly Cooper (Sly Cooper series)
Kratos(God of War Series)
Fat Princess(Fat Princess Game)
Parappa The Rapper(Parappa the Rapper series)
Colonel Radec(Killzone series)
Sweettooth(Twisted Metal series)
