PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale may not be releasing until next Tuesday, Nov. 20, but already developer SuperBot Entertainment is talking about the first batch of DLC characters for Sonyís upcoming four-player melee fighter. Introducing Gravity Rushís Kat and Starhawkís Emmett Graves.
Before you get too carried away with negativity about DLC characters being talked about for a fighting game that hasnít even come out yet, just know that SuperBot has already addressed that kneejerk reaction. According to a post on the PlayStation Blog, Lead Game Designer Seth Killian has confirmed that this DLC ďstill has a long way to go,Ē and wonít be releasing until sometime in early 2013. In other words, they just wanted to let everyone know nice and early what they were working on now that Battle Royale has gone gold. Secondly, these first two characters will be available free of charge following the first two weeks of their release. Not bad, aye?
PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale is a mash-up fighting title featuring characters and arenas pulled from Sonyís 15-plus years of gaming history. Everything from the PS1 to the PS3 is represented and, now that Kat has entered the fray, even Sonyís latest handheld device has a representative.
In Gravity Rush Katís melee fighting style consists entirely of kicks, so expect to see her roundhousing quite a few faces when she makes her way into the game. Her unique gravity abilities will also serve her well, allowing Kat to fly about the screen and dish out damage while simultaneously spitting in the face of physics.
Graves, on the other hand, comes from a third person shooter. Expect a few melee moves mixed in with a nice selection of firearms and, according to Killian, Starhawkís innovative build and battle system will be represented in Graveís ability to call down assistance from the sky.
