    After many rumors, leaks, and speculation, Sony has finally announced their multiplayer brawler, Playstation All-Stars Battle Royal.

    The footage of the game (viewable at the source) shows off some of the characters, such as Fat Princess, Kratos from God of War, Colonel Radec from Killzone, PaRappa the Rapper, and Sly Cooper, among many others. Stages such as Hades from God of War, Sandover Village from Jak and Daxter, Metropolis from Ratchet and Clank, and Dreamscape from LittleBigPlanet were also shown.

    Gameplay wise, it appears the game is not too far off from Nintendo's similar brawler franchise, Super Smash Bros., with key characters from Sony's franchises duking it out on a 2D battlefield. However, there are some differences. Unlike in Super Smash Bros. where you can fling a damaged opponent offscreen with almost any decently powerful. In the Playstation game, you need to fill an AP bar, that goes up to three levels. Each level produces a different attack of different power, with points only scoreable by these AP attacks.

    As mentioned before, a video of the gameplay can be seen below, and more info will come with soon. However, it is currently announced for the Playstation 3, no Vita has been mentioned yet.

    Kinda sad that the only char from the list that I know of is Kratos. xP
    Although it would be kinda cool having chars like Jak and Ratchet, although several other series like Spyro, Crash MGS aren't really Sony's exclusive, so I wonder which chars it'll have (they'll get some third party ones, just wondering which ones would be).

    Aside from that, the game does seem interesting, but I'd rather if it had a version for the Vita as well, I find that playing these games on the go could be extremely fun for a time killer. =O

    That's just sad, it's a statement of lack of creativity of the utmost level.

    Another attempt at Sony to cash in on copying Nintendo

    Could it look any more than a forced Smash Bros. clone? It's like they're not even trying to be original anymore.

    I'll pass... They should do something with Little Big Planet only, not with many sony characters.

    Edit: They are messing with God of War again. This is not good at all to the series.

    How can they copy super smash bros and still screw it up?
    Sony sure have a dire lack of tallent.
    Isnt this also a bit "hey get your lawyers, we going to war" territory for Nintendo or Sakurai??

    from what i see

    the bar by each char, is your special level (3 different level, 1,2,3)

    1=strong attack
    2=super attack
    3="super smash" attack

    it look like it may be a fun game

    why is are people making a big deal that is a SSB clone

    the SSB game works

    so why not make a game like it

    also
    there will NOT be just 1st party Sony char. in the game
    they will be 3rd party chars in the game as well

    Man, that game is all bad.

    It looks like they stripped down, re-skinned, and slightly modified Ragdoll Kung Fu.

    What's with the closed stages? From the video it looks like that it will be a mindless buttonsmashing shitfest. I might as well play Brawl in stamina mode on a custom box stage.

    Looks like the best fighter for the PS3, still prefer brawl though.

    Sorry, no other way to say it but...

    SHIT, SHIT, TWENTY POUNDS OF SHIT.

    And did you see the fighting mechanics? Fighting and fighting (no killing/K.O.-ing) until you build your meter up to Level 3, then, ACTIVATE FINAL SMA-err... AP ATTACK THAT INSTA-KILLS CHARACTERS.

    And let it be noted that, again, you can ONLY kill other players with the Level 3 AP Attack. No other time in the match can you kill opponents, only when you use your Level 3 meter attack.

    Its like Sony just took the Smash Ball mechanic, injected a meter-building system, made it the only way to kill anybody (why?), threw some bland characters in, created even blander mash-up stages (LBP+Buzz, dohoho...), and churned out Sony Smash Bros.

    This game looks fucking terrible. I hope they change things, a LOT of things. Pathetic.
