" Put up your dukes Sony fans, the latest episode of GT.TV has introduced the world to the long-rumored PS3-exclusive brawler PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, which is slated to release during Holiday 2012. As the name implies, the SuperBot-developed title will be online multiplayer enabled and pit iconic PlayStation characters against one another in a Super Smash Bros. Brawl-type experience that will feature PlayStation personalities such as Kratos, PaRappa the Rapper, Sweet Tooth and a whole lot more.
In the show, we delivered a first glimpse of the game in action including characters and environments from classic PlayStation franchises such as God of War, Killzone, Sly Cooper, Buzz!, and Twisted Metal just to name a few. In fact, according to Chan Park, President of SuperBot Entertainment, the game will contain "nearly two decades of characters, worlds, and themes from the PlayStation universe." Also, players will have access to any combination of the game's available characters, allowing you and your friends to finally find out who would win in a battle between Kratos and Sweet Tooth or to engage in some Kratos on Kratos action if you so choose.
In terms of gameplay, Game Director Omar Kendall informed the GT.TV audience that there will be three levels of Supers for each character. In detailing Kratos, Kendall stated that the Level 1 Super is a sword slash attack that impacts combatants within the immediate vicinity while Kratos' Level 2 Super involves slamming his sword into the ground and launching a cyclone that inflicts damage on enemies both near and above. Finally, the Level 3 Super allows Kratos to transform into the Ares Armor and acquire a whole new move set that will leave enemies "fighting for their lives" for the duration of the Super.
As for environments, we learned that anything goes from the included franchises, setting up scenarios where scenery or interactive elements from games like LittleBigPlanet, Patapon, and Buzz! will serve as more than just a backdrop to the brawling. Lastly, we also learned on GT.TV that guest characters from third-party games are not out of the question. In fact, SuperBot told us that "third party is a huge part of PlayStation and we're definitely going to feature some of those characters in our game."
