Well, it was fun while it lasted.
Sony Santa Monica has confirmed that development for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale has drawn to a close. There will be no more additional characters or other forms of content, but all the previously exclusive DLC will become available at some point.
Starting on August 27, players will be able to grab a bunch of pre-order skins that were once only available in the US as pre-order incentives. So, enjoy skins for Raiden, Heihachi, Dante and Big Daddy. They will also release a balance patch that tweaks player strength, weakness and functionality, along with free costumes for Zeus and Isaac Clarke. As for things they never quite managed to include:
"In the course of any game's development, there are always elements that never quite get finished or the team decides not to use in the final game. Some of these additional materials from the game’s development phase have been recently released, but unfortunately, these are very far from finished assets and were not included in the final game for a number of production and legal reasons."
There was a rumor that Legend of Dragoon protagonist Dart was going to be added to the roster. But obviously, that isn't going to happen now. Oh well, guess you'll just have to replay LoD…wait, what? Haven't played it?! Shame on you. Such a great PlayStation RPG.
