PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale announced

Sony goes head-to-head with Super Smash Bros.

GameTrailers TV has lifted the lid on its big PlayStation 3 exclusive. In development at SuperBot Entertainment, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale takes all your favorite PlayStation characters and brings them together in one big brawler.

Characters shown include Kratos (God of War) Sweet Tooth (Twisted Metal), PaRappa (PaRappa the Rapper), Sly (Sly Cooper), Radec (Killzone) and Fat Princess (Fat Princess). Each character has three levels of “Super” attacks. Regarding third-party characters, SuperBot said they are “definitely going to feature some of those characters,” as third-party is of huge importance.

The game looks similar to Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. series, and features interactive environments and expansive battlefields. Stages shown include Sandover Village (Jak 2), a city from Ratchet and Clank Future, the Underworld (God of War III), and a LittleBigPlanet/Buzz stage. The Underworld saw a giant Hades in the background slamming down on the battlefield as players fought. Meanwhile, behind Hades were a bunch of dancing Patapon.

Like Smash Bros., All-Stars will feature its own main boss character. SuperBot wouldn’t say who, but they teased, “we’ve picked something out of our hat that I think fans will be really surprised with.”

PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale is due this holiday season. Watch the full episode of GameTrailers TV through here or below.
