Sony Super Smash Bros Game to be Titled “PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale”?

One of the big rumors of late last year was that Sony is working on a Super Smash Bros-style game with all your favorite PlayStation characters. Now, a survey seems to suggest that the game will be called PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. (PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, PS3, SuperBot Entertainment, Title Fight)

O_o - juicy rumor that seems to be true. I was beginning to think the original rumors were non-sense.

I kind of like the name even if it is a little long, I think it's the best title fit for it

I also think Sony needs a Kart game with all PlayStation characters in it. Imagine how awesome that would be if developped by Naughty Gods!

Those guys created the best Kart game ever on the PS1: Crash Team Racing!

I don't really like the name when it's written in an article like this, but I would imagine that when it comes to box art, "PlayStation All-Stars" will be on top and a little smaller, and "Battle Royale" will be the stand-out.
Godchild1020  +   1187d ago
I don’t like the title. The title gives off that there will be no one from outside of Sony’s franchises that will be in the game and we all want to see some character from other games in this. I want to see someone from Mortal Kombat, and someone from one of the Assassin’s Creed games. There are endless characters that can be in the a PlayStation oriented fighting game other than the ones that Sony owns.

I didn't get that impression when I read it. If it was named "Sony All-Stars..." yeah, but I think using the PlayStation name is fine, and could allow for any character that's been present in a PS game, Sony-owned or not.

Personally, I'm not a fan of the name. I'm not a fan of long names in general. It's just awkward when it becomes a mouthful, and something short is easier to talk about. "Hey, you wanna play PQRSTUVWXYZ?" is more obnoxious to say than "Hey, you wanna play X?" I mean, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale is NINE syllables. That's a lot for a game title.

@Godchild1020
skyttskytt has a good point. I don't know if you've realized this, but Mortal Kombat and Assassin's Creed are both on Playstation, and might even be considered All-Stars.
GraveLord  +   1187d ago
Me too. Paul Gale Network is a just horrible looking site with bad content yet they were the ones to break this story.

On topic: The name sounds good...its bit of a mouthful but i'll get used to it.

"its bit of a mouthful but i'll get used to it."
That's what she said...

While
If it is basically Sony SSB, it'll be a shameless rip off, I can't help but get excited.

Who says it will be a rip off?

The idea is dominated by Nintendo and they do it very well, but so can Sony. IMO there is a whole class of genres Nintendo does very well in that I think Sony can benefit borrowing from for their own franchises, especially LBP-themed games.

Personally, I prefer a 3D fight world with simple arcade fun like Power Stone, which is the direction I hope they take this game, especially considering most of Sony's biggest franchises started in 3D anyway

Ahh, the amazing Power Stone. How come Capcom never bothers to bring this franchise to the current generation with proper online etc? It would have been a killer.
decimalator  +   1187d ago
Except Kratos wins every time.
waltyftm  +   1187d ago
I don't think so, Sackboy will rip him a new one ;)
srcBFMVBMTH  +   1187d ago
Did you not know? Sackboy and Kratos are one in the same. Hence why both of them are so damn epic.

I like 'Playstation All Stars'
TheRealHeisenberg  +   1187d ago
That could work but I think a little more is needed to define it as a fighting game. 'Playstation All Stars' could eventually turn in to something more like 'Playstation All Stars Soccer' or 'Playstation All Stars Football'. I'm just happy to see it is being discussed.

Call me crazy, but I think every word in the title screams generic. It's overly descriptive of what it's trying to be. It needs to have a more creative title. Something that'll give me that same chill I get when that announcer guy says, "SUPER SMASH BROTHERS!!!"
telekineticmantis  +   1187d ago
HORRIBLE NAME
"Title Fight" was a much better name. Remember you're not selling to kids Sony.
NukaCola  +   1187d ago
This game will not be a bloodfest. It's going to be E10 man. It's their smash. Lighting effects and awesome flash instead of blood. Your getting E rated Sony characters and R rated characters. It will meet in the middle. And I am pretty sure it will be amazing.

Either which way, I am excited.

Where can I pick up Xenoblade, and The Last Story for PS3? Had no idea that PS3 was the only thing that had games! What have I been doing all these years playing these mario games on the Wii when I could play them on the god-given PS3!

negroguy  +   1187d ago
It's just such a long name. Playstation Battle Royale sounds a bit better. Either way whatever it is called I hope its great because it definitely has potential with all the characters Sony can use.
dbjj12088  +   1187d ago
Can't say I like that name very much.
Regent_of_the_Mask  +   1187d ago
I don't care what it's called as long as I can beat asses with Parappa.

Same here, however i hope they do not go with that name. As its rather generic.
Fel08  +   1187d ago
I agree
tiffac008  +   1186d ago
I'm still hoping they add Kevin Butler as a secret character. lol!

They could make him move like a Reality Fighter. Hahaha XD
Oaklnd  +   1187d ago
That title isnt any good but i love the idea of the game if they can do it right
jdklaffke  +   1187d ago
Stupid name. Generic, as usual.

Is better.
DialgaMarine  +   1187d ago
Screw it. The title could be, "If you buy this crap, you like the c*ck", for all I care. If it delivers a smash bros-esq experience with all, or most of, the PS base characters, I'm game to buy this day 1. I think it's a safe bet that we will finally see this at E3.
r21  +   1187d ago
Playstation battle royale sounds good enough.
TheLastGuardian  +   1187d ago
The title is alright, just a little long. We can just call it PlayStation All-Stars or something for short.

There's so many great PlayStation characters that could be in this. I hope most of my favorites make it in the game.
asmith2306  +   1187d ago
If the rumours about an E3 PS4 announcement are true then this game would be a great launch title. It could do for the PS4 what Tekken did for the PS1. When Sony release the PS4 they need a strong launch lineup, the PS3's was terrible.
