PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale has finally gone gold on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita and, to celebrate, the gang over at SuperBot Entertainment, Bluepoint Games and Sony Santa Monica Studio have released the game's opening cinematic, complete with a brief glimpse of Battle Royale's final boss.
After months of teasers, big reveals, spoiled reveals, a few betas and more, Lead Game Designer Seth Killian visited the PlayStation Blog this morning to announce that PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale is ready to be stamped onto discs and Vita cards alike, just in time for the game's impending Nov. 20 launch.
“In celebration of this milestone, we wanted to share something special as a small 'thank you!' to all the amazing PlayStation fans who have helped us come so far,” Killian said. “We've been pretty tight-lipped about our final boss, but if you hang in until the end you'll get a glimpse of the villainous mastermind that's returned from the depths of PlayStation history to pull the strings in All-Stars.”
That's right, folks, it's the return of Polygon Man. Sort of PlayStation's original mascot, Polygon Man was meant to show off the power of PlayStation back when the first console was being released. The dude already looked kind of evil with his angular features and glowing eyes, so it makes perfect sense that he would be traveling through time to make his mark on the PlayStation universe once again as an ultimate bad guy.
Get in on the action with a 20-strong roster come Nov. 20 when PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale hit the physical and virtual market. Don't forget that the game features cross-play between the home and portable versions and, if you buy it for the PS3, you'll get a code for the Vita version free of charge.
Finally, keeping in sync with the studio's teasing nature throughout the game's development, here's one more little tidbit for those who feel like the roster might somehow be lacking in PlayStation icons. On the same blog post, one commenter says they were hoping for more characters. Seth Killian's response was as follows: “Stay tuned :) I think we may have some happy news in the near future...”
