12w ago - Sony Santa Monica Studio Lead Game Designer Seth Killian has shared some video footage today spotlighting the new PS All-Stars Zeus & Isaac, MediEvil + The Unfinished Swan level below.
To quote: Happy to be back to tell you about some new surprises from PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. More costumes? More minions? Well, okay, yes. But also more new characters!
Our newest challengers are Isaac Clarke from Electronic Arts' Dead Space, and Zeus from... well, from some of the foundational myths of Western society, but also from a little PlayStation game you might know called God of War by SCEA Santa Monica Studio.
How did these two emerge as All-Stars from the vast PlayStation multiverse? Synchronicity. We were talking with some friends over at EA who were hard at work on Dead Space 3, and with a lot of Dead Space fans on our team and all the cool tools at Isaac's disposal, some quick concepts emerged and we knew he'd be a great addition.
We've also wanted to add another "heavy," hard-hitting character into All-Stars (Big Daddy was getting lonely), and with all the work on God of War: Ascension around Sony Santa Monica, Zeus emerged as a perfect fit.
18w ago - SuperBot Entertainment Community Manager Daniel Maniago has revealed today that new PlayStation All-Stars will join the battle on February 12th, and will be free for two weeks!
To quote: I'm excited to finally announce that our first wave of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale DLC will be available February 12th. Here's what to expect.
Kat graces PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale with her presence, as an up-close melee fighter who utilizes her ability to manipulate gravity to turn the tide in battle.
Players who enjoyed Gravity Rush on PS Vita know that Kat loves to bend gravity to allow her to dash, slide, and fly from one place to another, and her All-Stars incarnation is no exception. Those who enjoy AP burst combos and varied mobility will definitely gravitate towards Kat.
Emmett Graves from Starhawk joins the fray! He brings his signature "Build & Battle" style from Starhawk, calling down different structures to aid him in battle, including Rift Extractors for AP and Flak Turrets that fire at will.
Aside from his default rifle and pistol, Emmett can also call for additional weaponry in the form of shotgun and rocket launcher loadouts, allowing him to adapt to any situation. These...
22w ago - Sega of America Associate Brand Manager Aaron Webber has announced that Sonic & All-Stars Racing hits PS Vita today, inviting fans to nab bonus DLC.
To quote: Why hello there, PS Vita owners! We heard you guys were hungry for an awesome multiplayer Vita racing game... and we're here to deliver. Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed hits PS Vita today, and we're super-excited to share the game with all of you!
The game is out now both in stores and also on PlayStation Store. As you can probably guess, the game also isn't your average kart racer. The reason we have that fancy "Transformed" in the name is because your vehicle is going to transform in every single race: from a car to a boat to a plane!
My last few blogs here revealed quite a few old school Sega fans, so it's worth noting that the entire roster is essentially a love letter to gamers. Beyond your traditional Sonic cast, we've included the triumphant return of Vyse from Skies of Arcadia (a personal favorite of mine), Gilius from Golden Axe, NiGHTS, and many more. We've even got Wreck-it Ralph included as a playable character. (Don't worry, though - he's not going Turbo.)
One of the things I personally like most about the races is that "Transformed" doesn't just apply to your vehicles. It applies to the tracks, too!...
24w ago - SuperBot Entertainment Game Director Omar Kendall has shared details today on Kat and Emmett in PS All-Stars alongside a new level reveal below!
To quote: It's been a couple of weeks since Seth let the Kat (and the Emmett!) out of the bag, so I thought I'd stop in and give you guys some insight into the philosophy behind putting these two great characters into PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.
The team and I attended an event at the Santa Monica Studios last night where we gave media attendees the first hands-on look at our new DLC, including the unveil of a brand new level, so I wanted to give you all a sneak peek at some of their moves and show off our newest level, Fearless! It's all exciting stuff that I'm eager to tell you all about, so let's get started.
Gravity Rush landed on PlayStation Vita earlier this year, introducing us to Kat. Her tremendous gravity powers, combined with a really charming personality made her an instant fan favorite, and thus an obvious candidate for PlayStation All-Stars.
When looking at Kat's play style in Gravity Rush two things immediately stood out to us: her reliance on aerial mobility and her arsenal of powerful kick-based attacks. We felt it was important to use these two elements as the cornerstone of Kat's play style, and as...
25w ago - Co-creator and executive producer Matthew Senreich has posted up a Robot Chicken PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale video tonight!
To quote: We are all gamers. It's that simple. A crossover appeared.
When PlayStation asked us at Robot Chicken to literally "play" with their all-star line-up of characters, we were not about to say no. PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale gave us an opportunity in the writers' room to have the geek discussions we all love to have.
Who would destroy who in a fight to the death, or wherever they end up going after being defeated. To make this animated short, we got one of our Head Writers Douglas Goldstein and our super gamer writers Mike Fasolo and Rachel Bloom (check out her geek videos on YouTube) to create this fun off-hours scenario for all our favorite PlayStation characters.
Then we got our super geek director/writer Zeb Wells (who y'all may know from his comic book writing history) to dive in and direct. Magic in a bottle.
What is that "before" or "after" location like where all these characters hang out? What voices could we give to these iconic characters when turned on their side 90 degrees?
