    No More New Characters Announced for PlayStation...Battle Royale

    Sony has revealed that no more characters will be announced for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale’s launch. In a post on Twitter, PlayStation Blog senior social media specialist Sid Shuman wrote that “We have revealed the full launch lineup of characters,” confirming that All-Stars will ship with 20 fighters.

    Keep in mind that All-Stars could easily add additional characters via downloadable content, so this doesn’t necessarily mean the roster will stay at 20 forever. For now, though, at launch you’ll have the following options:

    1. Big Daddy
    2. Cole MacGrath
    3. Evil Cole MacGrath
    4. Colonel Radec
    5. Dante
    6. Fat Princess
    7. Heihachi Mishima
    8. Jak and Daxter
    9. Kratos
    10. Nariko
    11. Nathan Drake
    12. PaRappa the Rapper
    13. Raiden
    14. Ratchet and Clank
    15. Sackboy
    16. Sir Daniel Fortesque
    17. Sly Cooper
    18. Spike
    19. Sweet Tooth
    20. Toro

    Rumors in the past have suggested additional fighters such as Metal Gear Solid’s Snake and Kat from Gravity Rush, though neither has ever been confirmed by Superbot.
    PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale will hit stores on November 20th for PlayStation 3 and Vita, and buying the console version will get you the Vita version for free. For a look at all 20 launch characters in action, check out 30 minutes of expert videos from Sony’s Seth Killian. For even more, be sure to see our official PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale wiki guide.

    Well, that bums me.

    At least it's better than having the same characters in different skins and slightly different attributes. *cough* Smash Bros *cough*.

    No Final Fantasy characters . I bet they'll release one lame character (say, Cait Sith, Zidane or, in a worst-case scenario, Vaan) as DLC and charge you for it.

    Way to go, morons.

    I am still upset that Cole gets two spots. No other game got two spots, yet inFAMOUS does? Also why no Chimera in the game? That would have been a much better character than two Coles.

    Oh well it is still a great list and I cannot wait for the game.

    Well it is 19 different IPS and 15 of them are exclusive to playstation. So I don't really get your point.

    Sony's problem here is that Most of the IP's they pulled out of here are un-memorable.


    With nintendo you can walk up to anyone you want and go "do you remember Yoshi/Fox Mccloud/Gannon/etc.?" and people will instantly know what the hell your talking about. With sony if you go "Do You remember Cole/Nariko/Radec/Fat Princess/etc.?" people won't know shit.

    Nintendos Characters are Very Memorable From their first debut because of how well Nintendo manages to push them out to the masses, Sony on the other hand doesn't know how to market them properly thus creates a gigantic amount of niche fanbases and the general populace having no idea who they are.

    It's part of why SSB does so well and why i don't have much hope for this series. They need to pull out the big guys instead of just having the small ones. the problem being most of their big guys have either left for third party or are non-exclusive in some form (Crash and spyro for example)



    Not saying the whole list is bad because of it though, Sackboy and nathan drake are big characters and they will help bring people in.

    I don't know any of those Nintendudes (except for Yoshi) and I've been a Nintendo fan for half of my life.

    Whatever you say fanboy.

    Who would you want in this game? Mario? Wario? Luigi? Yoshi?

    congrats you are either a very small minority or lying.


    because fox is from starfox and Gannon is from fucking legend of zelda , The second biggest series nintendo owns, as the main villian in almost every game from the series in some form.

    The point is there's no god damn FF character, yet Toro/Kumo, Cole, Nariko, PaRappa the Useless Rapper, Sly Cooper, Fat Princess and two Coles are there >:F.

    Just because you think that's true doesn't make it true.

    Once again, even if Evil Cole was an alternate attire, he'd still count as a model, there'd be no difference.

    I don't agree with Fox or Gannon. I think the average fan may not know who you are talking about (now if you said Star Fox or the boss of zelda people would know)

    I do agree with Nintendo having much more recognizable characters though. This has always been a problem with Sony. They have so many great IPs but very few great franchises.

    Nintendo really only has 3 great franchises (I don't mean great as in quality I mean great as in the ability to sell regardless of the title). Mario, Zelda and Pokemon are franchises that are very recognizable and that is why Nintendo not only took most of their Smash Bros characters from these games (, but also puts out a new one every year.

    Franchises like Metroid, Mother, Star Fox, F-Zero are all good but they don't bring in the cash like the 3 I mentioned earlier and their presence isn't as recognizable to the casual fan.

    Now with PSA I think there are enough big characters in it (Drake, Kratos, Sackboy, Ratchet) that it has mass appeal and it has enough unique characters that people like me will be happy with. The one thing I wish Smash Bros would do more of is put in those unique characters. Ice climbers, Game & Watch and rob are all awesome but I want more. I want the guy from balloon fight, or Dave from Wave Race or maybe a customizable character from Animal Crossing to be in the game as well.

    So in the end both games have great rosters. I think Smash has too many characters from certain IPs, but it works for the game. I love PSA's large unique roster (except for the 2 coles) and I look forward to being able to play as all those different fighting styles.

    In my whole life, the only person I know that games and doesn't know who Fox or Ganon are by name is Sly Cooper, and I'm not talking about "real.life-only" acquaintances, but internet-wise, too. it's "common gaming logic", just like knowing that the dude with the big, blue hat that they always show as a midget is Napoleon, or that the evil dude with the square mustache is Hitler.

    Hell, even non-gaming acquaintances know who the hell Ganondorf is!

    Also, Mother doesn't count. Nintendo killed it, and so far it seems they did the same to F-Zero .

    rumor has it that the next SSB will bring out the retro Nintendo IPs that were sorta forgotten by them.


    like super mario RPG characters and stuff. i think sakurai confirmed one of them earlier. Another character is like Stanley the Bugman.

    Yeah poor mother. You might be able to guess I am kind of a fan of that series .

    Now I don't want to dispute the fact that Fox and Gannon aren't well known. Just when the average fan thinks of great video game characters they aren't the first to jump to mind. That is all I meant (GET OFF MY BACK ALREADY )

    Also Nag if you want a Final Fantasy character in a fighting game so badly, here you go (although I agree, I really thought at least Lightening would have been added in)

    That makes two. I didn't know who Fox McCloud was until Mayus said Star Fox. Even then, I had never played Star Fox, let alone seen it played. Also, I didn't know WTF Ganondorf was. When I saw the name, I thought he was talking about a Lord of the Rings character. Zelda never appealed to me so I never played it.

    Given that, I still didn't know who 1/3 of the characters were on the PSA roster. I could have probably pooped out a better list that most of what's on there. However, I get that getting the license to use each character probably isn't cheap.

    But whatever...why isn't there another Power Stone game yet? Stupid PSA but no new Power Stone....piss me off.

    Sounds like you've never played (let alone owned) a Nintendo console lol.

    I'm not really aching to have a FF fighting game (if I did, I would have a PSP and the game you mentioned ), but there's a chance I'll get Battle Royale at a latter date ("because friends"), and outside of Raiden, Radec, Kratos and Heiashi, there's no one i'm interested in using. If they had a FF character (and chances are it'd be one of the good ones lol), the interest would grow. But no, I get fucking Toro, Nariko, Fat Princess and a lame dog that can't rap .

    I will say this though, "don't diss Toro". When I played the game I used him and Sweet Tooth the most and Toro will mess you up. Easily one of the best characters in the game.
