Playstation All Stars Battle Royale Details

News Fighting Playstation 3 Sony

The not so secret Sony fighting game has been officially been announced on GTTV with a release in holiday 2012. Playstation All Stars Battle Royale, in development at Superbot Entertainment, will pit an array of Sony owned characters (a possibly a few third party characters who have appeared on the Playstation consoles) in four player, free for all battles in themed stages based on popular Playstation games. Six characters have been revealed in the announcement: Kratos (God of War), Sweet Tooth (Twisted Metal), PaRappa the Rapper (PaRappa the Rapper ), Fat Princess (Fat Princess), Colonel Radec (Killzone), and Sly Cooper (Sly Cooper series). Of course, more characters will be announced, most likely at E3 2012. The game will be for the Playstation 3.

Playstation All Stars Battle Royale will feature both solo and multiplayer modes, as all fighting games will. Two single player modes were announced: Combat Trials and Arcade Mode. In Combat Trials, players not only learn the basics of the game but perfect their skills through hundreds of unique challenges. Additionally players can play through a fixed level progression with prizes in Arcade mode. Three online multiplayer modes have been announced: Tournament Mode, Special Event Battle and Custom Matches.

A few preview articles have popped up and have revealed a few gameplay details. Yes, the presentation does look like Nintendo’s Super Smash Brothers, but there are differences. First up, the Playstation characters have three attack buttons in combination with directional input, one more than Super Smash Brothers. Each character also has three levels of special attacks, built up by collection Energy Points (EP). Health is also non-existent, but you don’t knock characters off the stage. Items are existent, but don’t pop up as often. Stages are quite different as well, as the background does get involve in the fight. One stage is based on BUZZ!. At times, the titular character will pose questions and players can answer them. Get it right and reap in the benefits. Besides, as Charles Caleb Colton said, “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.”

With the game now out in the wild, what does everyone think? With such a polarising audience emerging, will you give it a go if you had the chance? Give us your thoughts and check out a couple of screenshots & and gameplay  below.

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!
