Ken Levine Wrote The Script For Big Daddy And Little Sister In 'PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale'

When a studio brings together more than 20 game characters from different IP owned by different studios around the world, it can be easy to lose track of the characters' origins and what they stand for. The team behind Sony's upcoming PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale were careful to avoid that, according to SuperBot's Omar Kendall.

Speaking with Polygon, Kendall said that it was very important for the developers behind PlayStation All-Stars to respect every character that joined their roster. The studio even had Irrational Games' co-founder, Ken Levine, write the script for the Big Daddy and Little Sister characters from Bioshock who appear in the game.

See this is the type of gaming respect that I like to see. When a game features a cameo it should be done right. This just makes me more excited to play all stars. Hopefully they bring in gex at some point.

They do have some very stylish details in this game. For instance, they mix the soundtrack from the different games together based on which games are represented on screen. The more I hear from it, the more excited I get.

He wrote dialogue for the Big Daddy? What did it consist of, a lot of whale noises? Little sister doesn't have that much to say either. Just call him Mr. Bubbles and you're done.

I'm actually really looking forward to this game but this news seems a bit silly to me. With characters like Nathan Drake where you have to work hard to make sure the character feels and talks the same as in his other games, Big Daddy and Little Sister could have been written by anyone. Still it's nice that the developer was working close with them I guess.

It's not just their lines? It's their whole cutscenes and how they behave to give it that authentic Bioshock feeling. Anyone can't do that

Script =/= just dialogue

If Ken Levine is cool with Big Daddy in PSASBR then others should be too IMO :)

Some characters in this gamr doesn't make any sense, how are they PS ALLSTAR?

Its kinda funny to see that Ken Levine as a much better business relationship with Sony than Microsoft.

Bioshock Vita and now this.
