Sony impressed with the first showing of their four-player PlayStation IP mashup brawler, but they only showed six characters and four stages, and gave us next to nothing in the way of details at the reveal this week. And what does the Internet do when the details aren't there? They make some up!
We've pulled together a list of characters, features and ideas we have for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. Some are obvious choices, and are expected to be announced later this year, while others are a bit of a stretch. Be sure to add your input in the comments!
We've got a couple of decades of Sony history to draw from, and plenty of unique characters to borrow, so let's go nuts.
Sony has so many properties to pull from for stages that I'm guessing that the development team behind All-Stars had a blast putting them together. I can't wait to see what they do with the varied properties. For now, here are some good guesses for what to expect.
Sony has the pull and plenty of partners, so why couldn't they do this? It's not a stretch in my mind. They could phone in the following to include them in the game's roster, or at least add them as DLC. By the way, I predict that the amount of DLC for this game is going to be bonkers.
Sony is all about the Vita these days, and we know the system can do cross-platform fighting beautifully (see Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 or the upcoming Street Fighter vs. Tekken for proof), so why not a Vita version that can support match-ups with other PS3 and/or Vita players?
What did I miss? What would you like (or hate) to see in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale?
