It feels like just yesterday that we reported a massive leak pertaining to unannounced characters and stages in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale… oh wait, it was yesterday. As it turns out, all of the information was pilfered from the top secret PlayStation All-Stars beta – currently available for a select number of dedicated PS3 users – and now a ton of new information has been found within the confines of the beta’s code.
According to the forums at NeoGaf and GameFaqs, there is still a bountiful amount of content that the developers at SuperBot have yet to even touch on. A total of 20 supporting characters, 17 items, and 28 game modes/miscellaneous features have been brought to light thanks to code dogs who’ve torn apart the beta. Everything sounds rather enticing thus far, but it’s the current list of minions that tells us who we can cross off our All-Stars wish list.
Leaked characters such as DmC‘s Dante and Metal Gear Revengeance‘s Raiden were surprising, yet very much appreciated, roster additions, but many fans have been hoping that other characters from their games would show up in Battle Royale as well. While some fan-favorite sidekicks will not be playable, there are plenty scheduled to appear as something that SuperBot is calling ‘minions’. These characters will show up in the background of select stages, and a few will even interact with the fighters.
The current list of non-playable support characters is as follows:
- Athena (God of War)
- Captain Qwark (Ratchet & Clank)
- Worker (Fat Princess)
- Dollface (Twisted Metal)
- Helghast Soldier (Killzone)
- Kai (Heavenly Sword)
- Kat (Devil May Cry)
- Keira (Jak & Daxter)
- Kiya (MediEvil)
- Kuma (Tekken)
- Little Sister (BioShock)
- Monkey (Ape Escape)
- Murray (Sly Cooper)
- Nix (inFamous 2)
- Pierre (Doko Demo Issho)
- PJ Berri (Parappa the Rapper)
- Sackbot (LittleBigPlanet 2)
- Sam (Metal Gear Revengeance)
- Sully (Uncharted)
- Zeke (inFamous 2)
As previously mentioned, an updated list of items was also revealed. Bountiful amounts of weapons from several of Sony’s intellectual properties have found their way into Battle Royale, and it sounds like they’ll contribute to the final package rather nicely. The armaments also give representation to franchises that otherwise wouldn’t appear in the game, so the inclusion of Wipeout‘s Gravity Shield and ModNation Racers‘ Sonic Rift are appreciated.
The current list of items is as follows:
- Atomizer (Resistance 3)
- Baumusu Axe (The Mark of Kri)
- Boots of Hermes (God of War III)
- Freeze Missile (Twisted Metal)
- Golf Club (Hot Shots Golf)
- Gravity Shield (Wipeout)
- Hedgehog Grenade (Resistance)
- Dohvat Laser Designator (Killzone 3)
- Leech Beem (Wipeout)
- Murder of Crows (Bioshock Infinite)
- Railgun (Metal Gear Solid 4)
- Razor Claws (Ratchet and Clank)
- RPG (Uncharted)
- Scythe (Fat Princess)
- Spear (God of War)
- Sonic Rift (ModNation Racers)
- Sackbot (Little Big Planet)
Last, but certainly not least, a list consisting of both All-Stars‘ game modes and features was released. The fighting game will have the basic modes that many suspected, such as ‘Arcade’ and ‘Training’ modes, but there are also a number of features that come as somewhat of a shock. Free Roam? It’ll be interesting to see how SuperBot incorporates that mechanic into a fighting game.

Now that a large portion, if not all, of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale has been leaked, it’s a relief to admit that the title appears to be shaping up rather nicely. It’s believed that despite this massive leak, there are still a number of secret characters and stages that have yet to be revealed. Gamers will continue to keep their fingers crossed for any sign of Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon, while others can now put to rest dreams of sidekicks like Zeke and Sully joining the fray as playable contenders.
PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale is launching on the PS3 and PS Vita this October 23rd.
