Once again, the rumors have been proven true.
Today, Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) has announced PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale , in development at SuperBot Entertainment and scheduled to arrive for the PlayStation 3.
Dubbed the "ultimate four-player brawler," the most iconic characters in the PlayStation universe will throw down in invigorating combat; expect the likes of Kratos, Sweet Tooth, Fat Princess, Parappa, Colonel Radec, Sly Cooper along with many recognizable characters from some of the best third-party franchises around. So…Dante and Ezio, anyone? Said SCEA Senior Vice President of Marketing Guy Longworth:
"PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale delivers a veritable encyclopedia of PlayStation's rich gaming history. This game is a celebration for fans of PlayStation and we are excited to deliver the most comprehensive brawler available."
Players will be able to fight "in a variety of configurations," including versus matches for four, team battles, and special practice modes. When online, we'll face a new set of challenges, and that includes Tournament Mode, Special Event Battle, and Custom Matches. The environments on display and the music that will grace our speakers come straight from the "rich and varied history of PlayStation titles."
Yeah, it's Super Smash Bros. for the PlayStation brand, but hey, there's nothing wrong with that.
