PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale Screenshots Introduce Arenas

In PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, a cast of random video game characters will come together to beat the crap out of each other. A new set of leaked images show the venues for these brawls.

Some of the stages are instantly recognizable, such as the invasion of San Francisco in Resistance or the flying city Columbia from BioShock Infinite. Others are less obvious; that container yard is actually Alden's lair from inFamous. Maybe it'll be easier to match the place with the game when you see the stage in gameplay with all of its dynamic bits.

The game's maps aren't based solely on one game, though. As we've seen from the gameplay footage, the arenas generally mix two titles at once. For example, one level features Hades from God of War 3 as well as a tribe of Patapon warriors. These images don't really do justice to the mash-up quality that the final game will have.

All-Stars Battle Royale is due on the PS Vita and PS3 simultaneously in October. The Super Smash Bros. clone premise makes it an easy target for skepticism but maybe it'll surprise us.
