Is PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale 2 Set For A Reveal at E3 2013?

PlayStation Euphoria: PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale has been left for three months without any new characters/two months without an update but now there is a faint glimmer of hope for the fanbase as a possible sequel might have been leaked. On the PlayStation All-Stars forums, a user has posted four images this person supposedly took at E3 yesterday. (E3, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale 2, PS Vita, PS3, PS4)

Hard to tell

I think SSM will announce their plans for the franchise, but I don't think it will be ASBR2, more like an expansion pack.

That said, I am just hoping to hear something, fun game.
US8F  +   313d ago
I really want what you said to happen. I don't want them milking anything in all honesty, especially since it was released not to long ago. 2-3 years apart installements keeps it fresh and exciting.

A new AAA game is what I'm hoping SSM announces.
AliTheSnake1  +   313d ago
So that's what santa Monica's vine tease was about

they look they were button mashing.So either that or a co-op god of war where each player was holding one side of the body to rip them apart.
-Mika-  +   313d ago
As long as it has new developers. Im fine with it.
chrispseuphoria  +   313d ago
Sony Santa Monica originally came up with the idea at first with Title Fight. It also says on the image that SSM is working on it by themselves.

I know. I hope SSM works exclusively on it. I don't want superbot to interfere with development. They did an horrible job at making battle royale seem like a "AAA" $60 title.
soniqstylz  +   313d ago
@Mika: Superbot is working on a new IP.
r21  +   313d ago
Mika just asking but how does it feel to comment more than once now? Now trolling just asking haha.

I was actually wondering why everyone has at least 5 bubbles now?

To actually promote discussion?
Simon_Brezhnev  +   313d ago
Must be because of e3 LOL
That-Guy  +   313d ago
Yeah, the bubbles are probably temporary.
pr0t0typeknuckles  +   313d ago
if they have crash,then id be happy with it.
LOL_WUT  +   313d ago
Probably just DLC ;)
Flyingdog670  +   313d ago
Yea, it's still to early for another game.
Godmars290  +   313d ago
Too soon?
ssj27  +   313d ago
it's useless genre, a waste of time and cash..

they rather do this IP, than a true SOCOM or J&D.. is beyond me.

Well Jax and Daxter is Naughty Dog and SOCOM is obviously up in the air after 4
Godmars290  +   313d ago
Maybe on the scale and system its been offed on. As a $60 game.

Know the team who did it put a lot of work into it - then were shut down, wtf - but really, the game should be another Fat Princess. A PSN title with some higher the average production value.
ssj27  +   313d ago
I agree with godmars290

I see that this IP have some loyal fans .. it does not mean anything .. the game was not needed and that money could have been invest into a better IP or a loved IP like SOCOM or whatever..

or like godmars290 said.. a $15 or $20 psn game will have been better than a full retail price..

I never said it was a bad game or anything so don't hate on me.. it's just a fat and numbers proved it even sony did prove it after losing down the studio.

frankiebeans  +   313d ago
first one was horrible needs a new team developing it needs to be a smash bros clone with playstation characters. smash bros is one of my favorite games ever and they do that style of game perfectly.

horrible? that's BS, the game is fun as hell and a very deep fighting game. Play it before bashing it

Afterlife  +   313d ago
Yeah the game isn't horrible, it's functional with some depth in the gameplay. But everything else sucked, bland music, ui menus, modes,sound effects, boring cutscenes, stages and graphics. The game got boring after 1 month and I regret buying it day 1. I personaly don't want another one because the formula doesn't work for me.
frankiebeans  +   313d ago
bought it its horrible imo but maybe my expectations were too high because i'm a huge fan of smashbros and gameplay was nowhere on the level of smash bros.

Caffo01  +   313d ago
you expected a smash bros clone, SuperBot gave us his brawler with its own gameplay and rules. You are entitled to your opinion and if you don't like it i'm ok with that but not with calling it horrible: there's lot of people who play it everyday (like me) and love the gameplay.
Caffo01  +   313d ago
I agree on the story and cutscenes, but the stages and the music worked pretty well for me.
And i LOVE the super system. I really don't care about a healthbar mode,but i'm not contrary either as long as they don't cancel the super mode entirely..
I still play PSASBR and it's incredibly fun,i really hope for a sequel or at least some sort of expansion.
the_hitman3000  +   313d ago
It would be awesome if they could get a decent story for it. With all the characters they have I think they could pull it off. I know though that it's easier said and done.
pr0t0typeknuckles  +   313d ago
i agree,a story mode would be amazing,and wed actually get to see the ps2 trio interact with drake.
CRASHBASHUK  +   313d ago
or ps4 launch games?

Lionalliance  +   313d ago
Maybe just expansion.
spok22  +   313d ago
Wow. I thought the majority of the reception on the job that Superbot had done was positive. I enjoyed the game myself. Just needed a couple of balancing tweaks here and there and a better choice of characters but the gameplay itself was pretty good Imho.
Mr_Nuts  +   313d ago
Yeah if they totally improve the game, add the characters we bloody want and have the old Title Fight style that looked way better.

Oh and they better have a Smash Bros type health system, even if it's a health bar I'm fine with it.

Killing people only with Supers got annoying fast, I can't tell you how many times I've seen Nathan Drakes Third Super. They should only come on if you get a floating PS logo orb.

Get rid of New Dante, Evil Cole, Zeus and Heihachi and replace them with Crash, Spryo, Cloud/Squall, Gabe Logan, Old Snake, Croc and we'll be fine

princejb134  +   313d ago
the characters wasnt the problem. They were plenty of characters. The biggest issue was the balance. Kratos was overpowered with his mid to long range chains, as well as he filled up AP way to quick.

i agree with the supers to get kills system. It got repetitive and boring after seen the supers so many times.

they definitely need health system

i played the game for 2 weeks until i got bored and now its jus collecting dust in my room

Mr_Nuts  +   313d ago
They weren't a problem with the core mechanics but for fans it was. I mean it's an All Star game and most of them were third party that weren't Playstation Icons. Plus characters nobody liked or wanted

I only have it still because I got the Steelbook :)
EmptySkyForm  +   313d ago
If this is true I hope we get more allstars. We need some rpg characters and icons like crash and spyro. Either way I would buy it. It was a fun game.
Flyingdog670  +   313d ago
I really doubt they would announce a second entry already. Most likely they are gonna show some DLC, they said DLC was still comming.
mrmarvel29  +   313d ago
Loved the first one. hopefully the second one has more features.
r21  +   313d ago
I see Sackboy, Cole, the rest is a bit hard to see. Whatever it is though, cant wait, loved PSASBR :D
Game4life  +   313d ago
i'm betting on an expansion but i'd be happier with a sequel that is more like smash bros with the way you die. i'm not a big fan of the super system
Kennytaur  +   313d ago
Santa Monica is working on more content for the current one, so this'll be that. A sequel is still a couple years off.
_QQ_  +   313d ago
Give us Snake and cloud please.
SlavisH2  +   313d ago
cool story bro
Skate-AK  +   313d ago
I think it will be either a game overhaul or an expansion if it is too much to just patch.
TwilightSparkle  +   313d ago
Maybe its more like smash bros now
strigoi814  +   313d ago
Only need expansion pack and add a kungfu rag doll game mode

I was mad because they didn't put Nathan Hale in it. But they put nariko. Resistance: Fall of Man was what kept me playing my PS3 and made more money for Sony than most of their 1st party games yet they cut him out.
SoapShoes  +   313d ago
I'd rather a playable Chimera than Hale or Cappelli. They are more iconic than the other two.
King-Prodigy-X  +   313d ago
If real they'll probably show a CGI trailer and mark it for a 2014 release because its too early.
Tei777  +   313d ago
It depends though, how many assets will they be able to reuse. If ND can create an entire uncharted game in 2 years, a good team can create a sequel for PASBR in 12-16months months.

If they announce it I think we will ingame footage.

Tei777  +   313d ago
I think they should have gone the PowerStone direction. IS it too much to hope a potential sequel takes a u-turn in the combat?
chrispseuphoria  +   313d ago
I really enjoyed PS All-Stars' combat. It felt much more strategic than other brawlers.
Shinobi100  +   313d ago
I'd like em to overhaul everything and just keep the basic premise of a crossover fighter. PSASBR wasn't bad by any stretch, but it didn't feel like what 1st party Sony titles are capable of
chrispseuphoria  +   313d ago
I can agree with that. Many parts of the game are unpolished but overall, I believe the series has the potential to grow. Look at the difference between the original Smash Bros to Smash Bros Brawl. Huge difference.
clank543  +   313d ago
These are all characters from the first one. Seems more like just a normal promo for the one that is less than a year old and was a bit of a sales failure rather than a new game.
chrispseuphoria  +   313d ago
If it was the original, it would have said Superbot on the bottom. Instead, it's just Sony Santa Monica. It also states E3 on it too.
chrish1990  +   313d ago
Hope thia is real!
videgamenext1  +   313d ago
Did anyone even buy the 1st game ? I almost did. Played it and hated the fact that it takes no skill to be good at this game whatsoever. Anyone can grab raiden and dunk on fools for free in this game!
WeAreLegion  +   313d ago
You wanna bet?
porkChop  +   313d ago
They'll probably announce new characters. It's not a sequel. The game just came out not too long ago, they'd be nowhere near ready to announce a sequel unless it was in development at the same time as the first game.
Shinobi100  +   313d ago
This would inspire me to upgrade to the PS Vita-2000 model they're sure to announce. The 1st PSASBR left a lot of room for improvement in the series, from graphics to gameplay. The game just came out last year, so the chance of a sequel already is miiiiighty slim. But it IS E3, a time when ANYthing is possible ;)

...and give us Crash, Spyro, and Snake or don't bother
