Playstation All-Star Battle Royale | Update
There we have it folks. The first video sneak-peek for Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale!
Its not a ripoff of Nintendo's Super Smash Bros after all!
..if you believed that, that means you havent watched the video or ever played a battle royale game featuring a console's all-star cast. Watch the video, damn you!
Gameplay-wise, it does mimic (read: copied) Nintendo's brawler by having 4 characters going kahoot on each other's asses on a multiple platform arena. I guess we can't really complain much since this has been the standard combat format for any battle royale game. Onimusha: Blade Warriors anyone? pfft... okay.. let us not remind us of that game ever again.
So far the revealed characters are Kratos, Sweet Tooth, Parappa (really? oh well..), The Fat Princess (I KNOW RIGHT?), Sly Cooper and Radec (FUCK YES! A REAL HELGHAST WARRIOR!). As the dev mentioned in the video, we'll be expecting more characters as the game further develops. Here's to hoping Nathan Drake, Sackboy, Crash, Jak, Daxter, Ratchet, Clank or even Cole (Infamous, not LA Noire duh..) make it to the final roster. DLC exclusives are inevitable.
The arena backgrounds are obviously from every PS exclusive game. I could identify two God of War levels (HELL IS ONE OF THEM! now Kratos can give one hell of a grand tour), one from Little Big Planet and one from Fat Princess. Expect more coming soon.
Well, those guys in the vid seems like they were having fun playing the game. Lets just hope the final product would bring smiles to our faces as well. I still want to see Crash Bandicoot kick Kratos' ass and also Ratchet & Clank VS Jak & Daxter in a no-holds-barred cage match.
Till the next update on this game.
On a similar note, who else would you like to appear in this game? Dream match galore.
Hey Microsoft, we wanna see Malice go nuts on Masterchief, Marcus Fenix and Peter Molyneux.
