PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale Launched 10 Years Too Early

Though PlayStation All Stars Battle Royale is a bit of a cult classic, it could have been a big hit if it launched in 2022 instead of 2012.

It wouldn't have mattered, Sony would've rushed it out and left it to die. More so now than before with their focus now being on SP narrative driven AAA games.

Oh, but somehow Smash Bros. 64 made it work?

It just couldn’t compete with Smash Bros. and it wasn’t a free-to-play game like Multiversus.

PapaBop508d ago

I think it released at the right time. It's just after the success of Smash and Multiversus, it's finally time for a sequel.

I'd be all in on a remake or remaster of the original. I enjoyed it because I didn't sit there and compare every aspect to SSB. I just enjoyed it as it was.

Magatsuhi508d ago

Sony should make part 2 and dump a good amount of money on it. Scrap super only kills and it's bound to succeed.

Yes the power kills spoilt it completely WTH was they thinking you should have hp bar that's it

God of War: Ragnarok Weirdly Makes PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale Canon

God of War: Ragnarok has plenty of fun references to PlayStation history, but now fans have discovered a conversation that calls back to PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale — the crossover fighting game released for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita.

Nyxus515d ago

I wouldn't say canon. More like an easter egg.

Deathdeliverer514d ago

That’s interesting. It actually does make it canon lol. He mentioned it in a mainline game. I’d say that’s pretty cool.

Only if they fix two things

1) The characters, the line up was f****** awful in places. There was no Cloud, Squall, Zidane, Sora, Crash, Spyro, Lara Croft (classic), Tomba, Croc, Gabe Logan, Snake, a variety of Resident Evil characters so on and on. It was a bit of a joke, let’s be honest.

2) Only allowing us to primarily knock out opponents by using Supers. It makes you go insane watching the Supers over and over and over. Just do a Smash Bros and give us a percentage or even a health bar.

Try including Snake this time ;)

Love PASBR if they can do the same add ring our mechanics even as an alternate game mode. And have multiple seasons of characters definitely. I never understood the anti “smash like” arguments where people were so prefixed on “only Nintendo can do it” instead of embracing the ability for everyone to try.

It’s like having street fighter and being upset SNK fighters exist. It’s just stupid

JBryant0619548d ago

Sony should definitely give it another try especially since they have more characters now like Joel/Ellie, Delsin, Sir Galahad, Deacon, Aloy, Jin, Atoi/Iota, etc. Maybe even use characters who weren't in the first game for some reason like Gabe Logan or Dart.
