DualShock Nexus: During some hands on time with PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale last week, I noticed that the game may only have 14 stages. Here's why.
I definitely hope it has more than that, like atleast 20
Same, i also hope they have a pretty big player count.
Yea one of the rumors on here was saying 32 characters, that's pretty cool, thats a high player count
it will be a huge missed opportunity if the game only has 20 or so characters and only 14 levels. i expect at least 30 characters and 29 levels, one for each character universe (minus the two Cole's). they also need to change the EU box art, they need to put more mainstream characters on the cover if they expect to sell more copies.
That's still a pretty good number.
Agreed. I think the 'only' in that title is unnecessary. That's plenty enough to start with and then you'll probably get DLC with more later on
I'm just gonna say it. That's one of the most retarded headlines I've seen. To possibly have only? I would have rather seen, "I have nothing to report here" as the title
I would like to see each character have his own inspired level. I think that would be awesome.
I dont buy this guys explanation. Essentially he says: 1) The current build includes 7 levels and a random option. 2) There are still 7 levels to come, and that this 2nd lot will also include the random option. Now why exactly would they include random level on both pages?
Atleast 30-15 characters aswell, I hope there is a game mode called classic where you have a health bar and the background environment dangers can effect you (falling off stage will kill you, lasers, rockets and things where hades blade can deal damage etc.)
Hope there is more, they officially announced 6... but with the leak there are 12 levels.
14 sounds pretty large. then im sure they will release both new characters and levels via dlc... I'm okay with 14.
Yeah the beta had like four stages, but the thing is unlike MOST fighting games, the arenas on this game transform almost completely by the end of the match... So 14 levels as well designed and fun to play as they were in the beta would be plenty.
I think we all already knew this. So far according to all leaks and pictures, 14 stages are about the amount I already saw. Fourteen stages mixed with other things. So far I haven't seen what is mixed with Black Rock, Columbia,Invasion, Loco Roco or San Fransisco. Bedsides this stage thing is a little out dated. We already have seen Time Station and this guy is still putting it as a leak.Fourteen stages are a lot especially if the final boss stage adds to it which would equal fifteen stages.
PSASBR really needs a good story to make the game more interesting.... just like the Super Robot Wars mash up franchise.
story in smash bros is abymsal lol what are you saying?????? its a fighting/party game anyway, the story always sucks. only blazblue has a good story line @IRSHGUY really? cloning smash bros? So battle field cloned COD? Tekken Cloned Virtua Fighter? Blazblue Cloned Streetfighter? Forza Cloned Gran turismo? Sonic Cloned Mario? seriously man, its called a genre
You are right that BlazBlue is one of the few fighting games out there with any real sort of story, but he said Super Robot Wars. You're also right about things not being a "clone" just because they're in the same genre.
MK is he only game with a good story mode that is not convoluted.
Since All stars is most comparable to Smash bros...no stroy is required at all. Wouldn't mind one but since they are cloning Smash bro's I doubt they'll do a decent one;
This isn't really a clone of Smash though. I'm a hardcore Smash fan, and I see many differences. The two game are really only similar enough to be under the same genre. Not much cloning going on.
@Irish Thrill kill did 4 player simultaneous combat,out foxies had dynamic battlefield and marvel vs capcom was the first game to have mash up of characters from different games.
another nintendo fangirl whats the matter ? buthurt ur not alone in the game anymore ? u realise all stars combat are made by vets of mortal kombat and street fighter right ? think before talking craps like this and if u even tested the game u should know it is played way differently
he said Robot Wars you numbnuts. Its a mashup of different mech series from Japan.
Tee Hee 3 numb skulls disagreed People seem to forget that CrossOver Stories in comics (X-men, Batman vs Predator), movies (The Avengers), & video games (The King of Fighters, X-Men vs Street Fighters), etc, etc, are a BIG draw to people & keeps everything alive, kicking and interesting.
I was about to say the same thing. It does not even LOOK like he said Smash Bros.
That would certainly be great but I doubt we'd get something like that from a game like this. It's easier to pull good stories from SRW games because most of the franchises used dwell within similar themes (in the crossover sense [make a bad guy, a robot!]).
Yeah that will be a sad missed opportunity afaic....I was thinking more in the vein of Namco X Capcom and Neptunia series.
I'm I the only one who thinks that the amount of characters and stages is already pretty big? I know we would love more but there already a shit tons of stuff.
Yeah the character list is huge and they don't even have all the "must" have characters yet. 14 stages is good enough for a first outing of a franchise in my opinion. I was expecting 10-20 stages so I'm not disappointed with that. I just want Cloud, Sephiroth, Sora, Snake, Crash, and Spyro to be in the game personally.
Umm 14 is alot I would want more obviously but its not a bad thing. Especially since everyone is dynamic and changes...
same with other games. small amount of maps. 14 is actually above average. I want the industry as a whole to add more maps to games.
I'm more concerned about characters right now - how many there are and who it's going to be that makes it in. 14 stages seems good enough.
Exactly. The stages are perfect where they are at. Characters however; I can think of a huge list of more characters I would love to see in this game, as I'm sure most people can too. Don't get me wrong, I'm completely satisfied with the roster as it is, but I'd definitely be happier to see some more of my favorite characters show up.
I agree I care more about the characters and besides didn't Superbot say they have a level editor in PSABR.
i didnt know that but thats definately welcomed news. stage editors are awesome
Can I ask why I am being disagreed with for stating facts? So far with all the leaks and pictures there have been fourteen stages with the final boss stage probably adding it up to be fifteen. How is it people on N4G can disagree with facts? Not to mention that I am sure that the boss stage will add one of stage plus there is still DLC.
14 maps is a great amount.
The original Smash Bros only had 12 characters and 11 stages, so for the first game in the series, PSASBR as a great selection of characters/stages as of right now.
im fine with 14 stages.
People forget each stage in this game consists of 2 game franchises.
.... Urm people, depending on how the game sells, they'll just add addition content ? i.e Possibly more characters or stages/arenas. It happens on most games. Plus as it'll be compatible with Vita anyway, which boosts it's own update features, there nothing really to flap about.
25 characters is my guess on disc. 5 characters are dlc bundle with 1 map each.
Hmmm, I'd be happy with 20... Not so much 14.
14 stages is more about right for a fighting game some have less others more so in between would seem ok.
I only really liked 3-4 stages in super smash brothers anyway. Considering the quality of the maps in Playstation All Stars I am more than happy with 14.
I think 14 is quite alot, not sure why people are moaning. Were it from another team, some of that would be dlc.
