70w ago - Combat Designer Ray Ray Shen at SuperBot Entertaintment has shared a video today of some PaRappa strategies for PlayStation All-Stars below.
To quote: I'm Ray Ray Shen, Combat Designer at SuperBot Entertaintment, and it has been a rhythmic ride to
design PaRappa's gameplay in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale!
To pay homage to such an iconic and beloved character, I made sure to do my homework first. Besides thoroughly replaying PaRappa's games, I also checked out his soundtrack, anime, merchandise and advertisements to get a full sense of his appeal.
PaRappa is unique not only because of his paper-like look, but also because of his passion and determination. Without crazy magical powers or heavy weaponry, PaRappa's moveset is based on his energetic, rapid kung-fu moves, his funky skateboard skills and his love of music.
To add an extra flourish, incorporated his biggest crush and motivation in life, Sunny Funny, into some of his actions. PaRappa's groovy charm definitely gives the gameplay a lighthearted spin, such as when he has Boxy Boy generating AP on Down + Circle and asks everyone to join his...
70w ago - SuperBot Entertainment Lead Combat Designer Paul Edwards has posted up some Kratos and Radec strategy videos today for the upcoming PlayStation All-Stars video game.
Below are the details, to quote: I'm responsible for bringing everyone's favorite Spartan warrior, Kratos from God of War, into our world of ultimate crossover fighting with PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.
SuperBot Entertainment was incubated within Sony Santa Monica Studio, and their feedback and involvement ensured Kratos' transition from his game to ours was smooth.
One of the biggest challenges was taking this immensely powerful god-killing character from a single-player game and try to balance that design within a multiplayer fighting game.
To get you a better feel for Kratos' combat strategies ahead of the public beta later this fall, we've enlisted SuperBot's Game Director Omar Kendall and PlayStation.Blog's Sid Shuman to give you a breakdown of Kratos!
We wanted to pay proper homage to Kratos, so the approach we took was to have his playstyle reflect some of the most iconic weapons in God of War, such as the Blades of Chaos and Apollo's Bow. And we wanted his Supers...
71w ago - SuperBot Entertainment President Chan Park has offically announced that PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale Public Beta is coming this Fall!
Below are the details, to quote: Hey everyone! Last week, SuperBot Entertainment and PlayStation invited a small group of players to get a hands-on preview of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale as part of our early development beta.
We're beginning to test our servers and connectivity issues and this is just the beginning as we work toward rolling out a public beta to the entire PlayStation nation this Fall.
As part of this exclusive access, players were able to take control of characters such as Kratos, Sweet Tooth, PaRappa the Rapper, Colonel Radec, Sly Cooper, and Fat Princess and battle in environments such as Dreamscape, Metropolis, Sandover Village, and Hades.
The feedback we're receiving from beta testers has been highly encouraging and valuable, helping us craft the best online multiplayer fighting experience possible.
In addition, there was an unexpected and unintended leak in our beta that allowed fans to be able to see some additional content.
We've enjoyed reading all of the fan reaction and are thrilled that so many of you are excited to learn more about our character roster and level mash-ups,...
73w ago - This weekend SuperBot Entertainment Community Manager Daniel Maniago has unveiled alongside new video footage below that Cole & Jak are joining the fight in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale!
To quote: We hope everyone had a great time in San Diego at Comic-Con! The convention seems to get bigger every year (not sure how that's possible), and this year was especially exciting for SuperBot since it gave us a chance to reveal the newest additions to the roster for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale!
Today at Comic-Con, the SuperBot team led a lively discussion panel that gave attendees a sneak peek at the development of PlayStation All-Stars.
Alongside our very own Chan Park and Omar Kendall, IGN's Greg Miller joined us as a moderator to explore how the team created our super roster of PlayStation characters and environments for the ultimate cross-over brawler.
In addition, they discussed alternate costume decisions, some of the different game modes available, and the concept of the "mash-up." But of course the highlight of the panel was...

To quote: Infiltration's victory in the 2012 Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition finals late Sunday night marked the close of EVO 2012, the annual championship that sees international fighting game experts compete in top fighters like Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Virtua Fighter 5, and Tekken 6.
This year, SuperBot Entertainment attended the competition to show off the PS3 and PS Vita versions of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, the studio's upcoming love letter to PlayStation history and the fighting game genre.
Here Comes a New Challenger
PlayStation All-Stars' EVO showing included a chance to sample newly announced characters Heihachi and Toro. Intitially, I had the most luck with Toro, using his deadly Mochi bombs, shuriken blasts, and comical bicycle kicks to torment foes from a safe distance.
But despite his adorable appearance and goofy combat style, Toro is no lightweight. He's...
