Check out PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale’s opening sequence


Stretching back from my roots as a tournament player to my current gig as lead game designer for Sony’s Santa Monica Studio, I’ve spent over two decades in fighting games, and have been thrilled to revisit so many great memories from my own PlayStation history with the characters and stages of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.

I’m here today on behalf of SuperBot Entertainment, Bluepoint Games and Santa Monica Studio to announce that PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale has gone gold on PlayStation 3 and PS Vita! All of us are extremely grateful for the help from our beta players in testing our networking, and thrilled to see the amazing response from all of you that played the beta, which is just a small slice of the full game.

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. Today we’re officially unveiling the opening cinematic sequence to the game. 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.

Let us know your thoughts in the comments below and if your interest is piqued, remember to pre-order All-Stars today! Pre-ordering scores you an exclusive costume for every character in the game, and with Cross-Buy, every PS3 copy comes with a download code for the PS Vita version at the low, low cost of zero!

Thanks again to PlayStation fans around the world for your incredible support, and come 21st November (22nd in Australian and New Zealand, 23rd in the UK and Ireland), I’ll see you online. Just look for the unbeatable Drake player at the top of the leaderboards. :P

Looks amazing. The whole SuperBot team has done a fantastic job with the game. You should all be really proud.

I pre-ordered my copy a few weeks ago so just don’t keep us waiting much longer.

Did you really need to put Nurb Boy up as a spoiler.Even though it was odds on,I’d rather of not known

Pure….awesomenesss :) magic.

That trailer was epic, I hope this game gets the attention it deserves, its been great seeing the updates over the last few months since its announcement.

Also Sackboy + Little Sister = Awesomeness

Amazing job with both the video and the game. Can’t wait to watch this when I load up my preorder copy.

Very enjoyable intro movie that. Still don’t know about the game. I played the beta and it is a lot better than Smash Bros but I’m still not sure I’ll buy it… yet. Got other non-gaming priorities (which be why I’m on PS Plus so I get freebies and enjoying R&C: All 4 One presently) but maybe in the future. I do want to play as Drake or Cole very much.


Just beautiful, I’m so proud of Sony with this game.
Just beautiful :)

If there ever is a sequel (which I hope), you guys HAVE to put Spyro, Crash Bandicoot and Sora from Kingdom Hearts in the game. They would all be PERFECT for this game.


Suprised it isn’t a big mario head


Actually that is probably your best act, I just don’t like the idea your just copying and pasting Nintendo’s stuff, anyway good job on the advert.

Awesome trailer is totally awesome, hypemeter is through the roof !! lol

One question, is GAME the only participating retailer for the pre-order bonus costumes, or will all pre-order copies no matter where from, ship with a code in the box ?? Thanks.

so… Polygon Man.. now, superbot told us, that playstation fans would know him.. if its Polygon Man, then thats just a big FU to euplayers. what is Polygon Man to eu playstationfans?

Do the Ps3 Disc releases have a code (or an on-disc install) for the Vita version? I am aware that the US releases (e.g. have the code but it is nowhere stated on the Uk retailers’ sites (e.g. Just want to find that out as I prefer having a physical copy and I’d rather not miss out on the game due to not knowing.


Sackboy and Little Sister was so cool!


brilliant game =) like it trailer

Awesome intro, but im really disappointed in the villain choice

Well Polygon Man has a really good reason to be [CENSORED] off. Being slated as the mascotte for Playstation, but being dumped even before its launch. I’d be pretty mad too :-)


This trailer is pretty good!
