It's a big day for mascot-infused fighting game fanatics as PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale releases exclusively to the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita.
It's been a long road leading up to the big day as the team at SuperBot Entertainment built anticipation for their four-player brawler with regular reveals, new trailers and devious hints popping up at multiple conventions and all over the internet. Sure, quite a few of those big surprises were spoiled by beta hackers and an overzealous website or two, but you can't blame the team for trying to get everyone pumped for one of the biggest fighting game releases of the current generation.
In PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, players take control of various first and third party gaming icons (Kratos, Big Daddy, Raiden, Sweet Tooth, etc.) and duke it out on levels that mash up two games from PlayStation's 15-year history. Put simply: It's a Sony flavored Smash Bros. style game that wears its influences on its sleeve.
PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale releases today for the PlayStation 3 and Vita consoles both at retail and through the PlayStation Network. As a reminder, All-Stars is part of Sony's new cross-buy promotion. If you purchase the game (either physical or digital) for the PS3, you'll net yourself a download of the Vita version at no additional cost. The versions are also cross-play, meaning that Vita and PS3 brawlers will be able to compete in the exact same matches.
