Sony’s version of Super Smash Bros., PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, is one of the most anticipated games coming out this year. Rumor has it that the game will not be exclusive to the PlayStation 3 however, as evidence points towards the upcoming blockbuster fighting game coming to the PS Vita as well. The game’s appearance on Sony’s portable is still unconfirmed from Sony themselves, but that hasn’t stopped the company from registering domain names for a Vita version of Battle Royale.
Sony has recently acquired a pair of URLs for a Vita edition of the brawler, which were spotted by TheSixthAxis. Had the existence of a Vita version not been leaked and rumored so much, it wouldn’t be a stretch to suggest that Sony may never use these domains, in the same way that the previously registered Pokemon Gray domain may never be used, and they’ve only been secured to prevent a situation similar to that of the one that occurred with the domain for Modern Warfare 3.
The domains registered are pretty standard:
The game’s appearance on the Vita was originally hinted at by PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale‘s director, Omar Kendall, after the title was official revealed. Even more recently, the Vita version was prematurely confirmed by SCEA sound designer Robert Krekel’s LinkedIn profile, so at this point there’s almost no question that the crossover-fueled beat ‘em up is en route for a dual platform debut. Still, it’ll be interesting to see how both versions of the game will interact with one another.
E3 is quickly approaching and gamers should expect more information on both the PlayStation 3 and PS Vita editions of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale to become available inside of a week. Hopefully, some additional characters are revealed too, because we’re anxious to see how many combatants from our list of top 25 characters that need to be in Battle Royale made the final cut.
