PlayStation All-Stars Will Have Future DLC

PlayStation Euphoria Writes: "Recently, a rumor had spread stating that future Downloadable Content for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale will not be seeing the light of day. The rumor is based on a cancellation of planned DLC for the character Abe from the PlayStation classic, Abe’s Oddssey. Recent tweet’s however indicated that while SuperBot isn’t involved with All-Stars anymore does not mean that the game won’t be supported post Kat and Emmet. Here are a couple of tweets between fans, Santa Monica, and SuperBot." (PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, PS Vita, PS3, Sony Santa Monica, SuperBot Entertainment)

Yeah we'll see but I'm getting a feeling that they won't put much effort into it with how much they've already got going on, especially with the PS4 on it's way.

I bet we don't get many good characters we actually want

Santa Monica is interested in hiring people from the studios which got laid off by THQ (Vigil Games) and Seth Killian, who has a deep connection to fighting games, is working at the studio. I'm sure Santa Monica have enough people and talent to cover All Stars.

Any news on if they'll hire Omar Kendall? The dude helped make PSASBR so balanced and fun (which is difficult for a 4 player fighting game).

@DonnieBoi, unsure of that at the moment. All we know is that he's still with SuperBot.

there is already an added Trophy for Nariko
but the DLC is still not there on PSN! I am waiting for the DLC myself but how will it works? will it works for both PS3 and Vita version or they need to be bought separately?

It's a free DLC pack for both the PS3 and Vita versions. I think DLC for all cross-buy titles will always be one purchase for both versions.

I'm glad to hear there will be more DLC. I'm still bummed about Abe though. That would've been an awesome, classic character.

I knew the rumor was fake.

I thought everything on the Internet was fact. Next thing you'll tell me is that there is no Santa Clause...

Nah, Santa Clause is real... But Slash isn't.

so we still have a chance to see crash
Games4M - Rob  +   722d ago
You will never see Crash in this game because Crash is now owned by Activision
Reverent  +   722d ago
Activision is still considering letting them use him... It's very possible.

Hell yah ! It's funny , I don't ever remember Smash Bros. getting any DLC. lol. That's why Playstation All Stars is the better game. Sony supports it's games after launch. Nintendon't. It's pretty much a guarantee they'll be adding Crash , Spyro and a Final Fantasy rep because they are the most requested characters. I've also heard rumors of a Classic Dante skin. I don't know how you perfect perfection but if anyone can do it , Sony Santa Monica can.

As much as I love Sony, I still cringe at the amount of fanboyism some people have. This game was good, but it definitely wasn't perfect, whether you compare it to SSB or not.
chrispseuphoria  +   722d ago
I don't think Smash Bros or All Stars trump each other. I both find them fun. DLC doesn't make the game better, it lengthens its timespan.
-Gespenst-  +   722d ago
I don't know. I'm not sure many companies will want to work with Superbot when they're no longer supported by Sony. Superbot don't really command much authority now...

Basically I think this makes it even less likely that we'll see characters from big corporations like Square Enix and Activision.
Why bother? The game didn't do well and throwing in a few DLC characters isn't going to help it. They should just scrap it and start over. They're acting like Bethesda in a way (releasing content when they should just scrap it and make another game) except Playstation All-Stars isn't nearly as buggy as Skyrim.
chrispseuphoria  +   722d ago
There is a large community for PS All Stars (listen to our interview with Omar Kendall) and I'm sure the diehards would buy every character they can for the game. Also, if the game becomes free to play, the game could become a giant for downloadable content (costumes, characters and stages). PS All Stars could become a money maker if handled properly.

Its nice of Superbot to still be enthusiastic bout the future DLC despite Sony doing a dick move towards them IMO.
