A blatant, low-down, unabashed Super Smash Bros. clone looms on the horizon, aiming to steal Nintendo’s flagship series and make it into a Sony affair. I will not stand idly by as Sakurai himself is disparaged and picked over like a dead possum (I love him, man!). It’s called Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale (previously rumored as Title Fight)and it’s not going to get my support. No sir.
Even if it does look like incredible fun and is going to be overseen by the flawless Sony Santa Monica and developed by SuperBot Entertainment. So what?
Maybe it will showcase some of my favorite characters on levels that are directly and artfully inspired by a large stable of Sony titles. Hrmph. You know what? I don’t even care if it will launch with online and local support, with a promised, robust single-player campaign!
Luckily, I won’t even bat an eyelash when the unannounced release date is finally given to us and I most-certainly will not mark it on my calendar. That’s something that just wont happen. I mean, I’ve never even once enjoyed a PaRappa, Sly Cooper, God of War, Killzone, Twisted Metal or Fat Princess game. So, why would I enjoy watching these presumably beloved characters go toe-to-toe? Yeah. Another thing you shouldn’t do is head over to IGN and watch the very first reveal footage of Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale. It’s not a good idea. At all. I wouldn’t lie to you.
Just to show how little I want to play this game, here is another video of the game in motion and brief talk from game director, Omar Kendall.
