This week, Sony announced a new title for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation All-Star Battle Royale (PSASBR), in which classic PlayStation characters (Radec from Killzone, Sweet Tooth from Twisted Metal, Sly Cooper, Fat Princess, and Parappa are the ones they showcased in the demo) duke it out for the ultimate all-star title.
This concept may remind gamers of a certain game (pretend you’re saying it with me even though you’re not): Super Smash Bros. The demo bares more than a slight similarity to the Nintendo hit. The camera is side-scroller-esque, the characters each carry their own quirky abilities, and the maps are dynamic in ways very similar to Super Smash Bros. Brawl (SSBB). Even the sky-respawn shows up in PSASBR. (By the way — worst abbreviation ever.)
