Official details on SuperBot Entertainment’s just announced Super Smash Bros. style fighter, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, are now starting to trickle in.

The details come from Omar Kendall, Game Director at SuperBot Entertainment. Kendall says the idea of a PlayStation All-Star Battle Royale existed in the hearts of gamers way before his team at SuperBot got around to making it. He says the game is a labor of love driven by the expectations of the fans.

So what’s the game focus? Kendall says “cool game modes for both single and multiplayer, with a focus on online play which features a robust tournament mode. Players will be able to compete against each other as well as play cooperatively”. First and foremost however, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale is “a celebration of a storied history of great characters and rich worlds brought together in one game.”

So far we only know of six confirmed characters: Kratos, Sweet Tooth, Sly Cooper, Parappa the Rappa, Fat Princess and Radec — but many, many more are sure to be revealed in the coming months. The final fighting roster will be a mix of Sony and third-party characters.

As for some of the unique stages we know of, a Ratchet and Clank-themed Metropolis, Sandover Village (the 19th hole of Everybody’s Golf), a God of War boss themed underworld featuring Hades and a Little Big Planet stage that builds itself — are just a few shown off in the trailer.Until more info is revealed, enjoy the media.
