PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale out now
New brawler includes classic PlayStation characters
Sony Computer Entertainment has announced that PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale is in stores now in North America, exclusively for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita systems.
Developed by SuperBot Entertainment, in conjunction with Sony Santa Monica Studio and PS Vita developer BluePoint Games, the title brings together an array of legendary characters from PlayStation's most popular games for the platform's first-ever exclusive multiplayer brawler.
Launching with a roster of 20 characters, up to four players can enter into battle. Each character is true to their original play style, including their signature attacks and special moves, promising a wide variety of combat mechanics to satisfy different players' preferences and gameplay strategies.
The game also introduces 14 mash-up arenas combining multiple elements from various PlayStation IP to create original battlegrounds for players to compete. These arenas feature dynamic play spaces, item pickups, and environmental hazards consistent with the original franchises on which they're based.
The game features Cross-Buy - a special promotional offer that allows consumers who purchase the PS3 version of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale to download the digital PS Vita version from PSN at no additional cost. PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale also features Cross-Save functionality, which allows players to save games to the PlayStation Network from their PS3 or PS Vita system, and pick up where they left off on either platform.
PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale promises post-launch downloadable content with new characters, new environments, new costumes and more in coming months.
