Yes, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale might be little more than a Sony branded Super Smash Bros clone with a Dissidia twist – but I’m completely ok with that, as long as it ends up being fun. Sony’s released two new trailers for the mash up brawler showcasing two of its new characters; Tekken’s Heihachi Mishima and that odd cat of Sony’s, Toro Inoue.
The game’s being developed by Superbot, with help from Sony Santa Monica (and Street Fighter expert Seth Killian) and is due on the PS3 and Vita (hopefully with cross play!) in October.
The confirmed roster of characters thus far is :
- Big Daddy
- Fat Princess
- Heihachi Mishima
- Mael Radec
- Nathan Drake
- Sly Cooper
- Sweet Tooth
- Toro Inoue
That’s not a lot of characters, considering Sony’s rich library of games – which likely means you can expect quite a few more character reveals before October.
Which other characters would you like to see brawl it out? I’ve gotta say…I’mma be pissed if there’s no Crash Bandicoot.
