Video: Super Sony Smash Bros!

That's right, Sony's mascot fighter is a real, actual PlayStation 3 game that is coming out. Developed by SuperBot Entertainment, PlayStation All Stars Battle Royale is a massive fighting game featuring all kinds of Sony characters from Kratos to Parappa. That's right, Parappa the Rapper. Dude, he studied under Master Onion. Kick! Punch!

Just watch the video interview with game director Omar Kendall from SuperBot above, and you'll get glimpses of some of the characters that are going to be featured in the game. And obviously there's way more to be announced later on as they slowly tease us with more and more information about this game. It looks super-ridiculous and super-fun!

I am surprised that they have the gall to make this... they may as well call it Sony Smash Bros and be done with it...

He was saying a lot of words but all I heard was "Smash Bro's rip-off..." Looks fun though :D I hope they'll get the locorocos in there somehow. Maybe as a stage.

Oh you silly Nintendo fans. Lest we forget that Smash Bros. was essentially a rip-off of Power Stone from Capcom...

This actually looks quite decent. Give me Nathan Drake and Sony can have my money...

I am so shocked they actually made this lol. That is a hell of a lot of balls and not entirely in a good way. It isn't just a rip-off, it is SUCH a rip-off that it's a little bit head-spinny.

That said I want to play as Fat Princess really bad so I'm probably going to get it.

Blimey. It's pretty slim IP pickings for Sony there.

@ nostromo:

There is a world of different between the Power Stone games and Smash Brothers. Their mechanics couldn't be further apart:

• Smash brothers has nothing to do with acquiring a series of power-ups to form into super-beings (and their closest equivalent- the smash ball- was only just put in the most recent version- Brawl- and is frankly turned off in any serious Smash Brothers gaming event due to severe imbalance).

• The gameplay in SB is on a 2D side-scrolling series of platforms while PS is always in a 3D boxed-in space.

• Power stone you have normal health bars while smash brothers chooses to have life system that simply makes you easier to throw from the level and get "smashed" the higher damage percentage you take.

• In Power Stone, unless someone is silly enough to accidentally resurrect you- once you are dead you are dead. In SB you either go as long as the time limit allows (racking up kills/deaths) or until you run out of a pre-determined number of lives.

• PS has a roster of completely original IP whereas SB is a game composed of Nintendo's most famous characters from across dozens of titles from their own personal IPs and even IPs of other companies whose games were created for the Nintendo consoles.

The only things the two have in common are A: they are non-traditional fighting games and B: they both allow for 4-players.

Also you may want to get your facts straight. The first Power Stone was released February 1999. The first Smash Brothers arrived January 1999. How, exactly, could the Smash Brothers IP be a rip off of a game that arrived after it (albeit barely)?

In other words you simply have no idea what you are talking about. And calling people "Nintendo fanboys" for calling out Sony for what actually IS a blatant rip-off is absolutely ridiculous. They are calling it like they see it. And frankly none of them seem to be anti-the game itself. They are just calling out the fact that EVERYTHING from the mechanics to the feel to the level layout to the UI to even the basic concept (a game that pits sony-exclusive IPs against each other) appears to be a direct copy-paste of the SB games. They didn't even TRY to make it not look like a rip off. And I think that's why people are shocked.

I agree with @Aedan, it does seem like a pretty shameless rip-off. Even small etails about the design are eerily similar (like the red/blue/green/yellow color scheme). I started watching the video with an open mind thinking it may just have been inspired by SSB, but seriously... No.

And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
