First Playstation All-Stars DLC Characters Announced

News Fighting PS Vita Playstation 3 Sony

The Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale roster has now expanded to 22 after the first two downloadable characters were announced in a post on the Playstation Blog. They are Kat from the Playstation Vita title Gravity Rush and Emmett Graves from the Playstation 3 title Starhawk. These two characters will be available early 2013, so there is some time before they are unleashed upon the All-Stars. Kat was rumoured to make an appearance after a leaked page on the official site, but Emmet’s inclusion is certainty one that was not seen.

The post does have some info on their playing style. Emmett will have access to all of his signature weapons and Starhawk’s “Build-in-Battle” system so that he may unleash an aerial fury upon his opponents. Kat’s main ability is the manipulation of gravity via a small cat that follows her around. There are also finishing attacks she possess in Gravity Rush, which will probably become one of her Super Attacks.

Once these two characters have been released, they will be available for free. The catch is that they will only be available for free in the two weeks after release. After that, it is presumed that they will have a price tag. Emmett and Kat will only require a one time purchase as DLC is transferable between the PS3 and Vita versions.

Update: Seth Killen has revealed that both Kat and Emmett will be getting the same treatment as the launch characters in the comments section of the US Playstation Blog post. Both will have their own story to tell and will receive their own rival. It is not known if Kat and Emmett will be rivals or other DLC characters will rival each of these two characters.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
