Playstation All Stars Battle Royale is one of the most interesting fighting games we have seen, drawing on all of Sony’s most famous characters to create the Sony version of Super Smash Bros. and it doesn’t dissapoint. The game focuses more on score than just a straight out fight to the death, with timed rounds and the highest score wins. The demonstration included both consoles.
The play seems flawless between both consoles, more than likely thanks to the large and familiar size of the Vita which makes it feel more like a PS3 controller with a screen added. During the demonstration there was very little difference between how all the players played, everyone seemed closely matched suggesting that the controls across both platforms are very easy to switch between and well matched.
The environment of the games is constantly changing up, sometimes introducing environmental hazard which can lead to death should you make the wron move or hang around. Some of the special abilities which can be acquired are particularly impressive, particularly Sweet Tooth’s level 3 special attack giving him use of a full size mech with which to wreak havoc on his opponents.
On top of all this beat down goodness, the showcase finished with announcement of two brand new characters in the form of Nathan Drake and Bioshock’s Big Daddy.
