Games Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale officially announced.

I made a few posts concerning the title in the big ass fighting game thread but now that all the info is finally out along with footage I thought I'd make an announcement thread for the debut of the game.

Here's the GTTV episode with the first footage of the game.

Some basic info of the game:

Quote:

- Smash bros gameplay confirmed
- HOLIDAY RELEASE
- more news coming at E3 (duh)
- 60 FPS confirmed (nerds)
- multiplayer with options
- 3rd party characters are in
- pretty sure characters retain the graphical style they used in their respective games
- 3 layers of super for each character
- Looks like life bars instead of numbers
- Hades stage (hades doing things during the fight)
- Buzz stage (get quizzed DURING the fight)
- LBP stage (starts off empty, stage builds as you play)
- Sandover Village stage
- Ratchet and Clank stage with Hydra from GoW
- Patapons doing things to Hades, combining characters for stages
- fat princess
- sly (can turn invisible cuz he stealthy)
- kratos
- Sweet Tooth
- Radec (his 3rd super is going into first person mode and fucking shit up)
- Parappa

Here's another announcement trailer for the game from the SCEA blog:



I'm really disappointed by the responses of how it's "Shameless" that I've been reading. Yes it borrows a few things from Smash Bros. but this kind of mash up has been a long time coming for the Playstation brand and I am a sucker for crossover titles that expand the big-ass gaming crossover chart.

I get to play in a fighting game as Parappa the Rapper?

I might have to get this just for that.

I'm totally stoked for the game. Don't care if it's a "rip off" or whatever. Because I too am a sucker for crossover stuff.

Snake (assuming he's in) will finally get to meet Gabe Logan and settle things. Assuming there is any Siphon Filter representation in the game.

Working in the kitchens at Activision after he and Spyro moved there during the Vivendi Universal merger.

Everyday at lunch he sees Spyro and all the new Skylanders counting the money from their new ventures and a single tear falls from his cheek.

Who else could there be?

Buzz? Ape Escape Apes?

Hopefully the 3rd party characters kick ass.

Edit: Fat Princess? WTF ...

Cole, the INFAMOUS Protagonist, should be in there as well.

Yeah, both characters were bought up looooooong ago and have shown up on countless consoles. But they were staple Playstation mascots for a long time too. Crash at one point was even being considered by Sony to be an official mascot for the system.

They're both very important to the Playstation's history and it's a damn shame they won't be represented here.
