Sony Officially Announces PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale

on April 27, 2012 11:15 AM

We’ve heard rumors fluttering around for quite some time now but Sony has now officially announced their own franchise character driven fighting game in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. I really hate to be ‘that guy’ and say this out loud but the inevitable conclusion must be pointed out: it’s basically Smash Bros. with Sony characters. Thankfully that’s an awesome sentence which probably sold you on the game right away.

Characters confirmed for inclusion so far include Kratos, Sweet Tooth, Parappa, Fat Princess, Colonel Radec, and Sly Cooper with others to surely be announced soon and mention made that some third-party characters are going to be in the game as well. The game itself will be a four player full-screen fighter with a large variety of different game modes, challenges, special modes and more.

Unfortunately the game has nothing to do with the Japanese book/manga/movie Battle Royale which if you’re not familiar is basically The Hunger Games if it was published ten years earlier and more awesome.
