New ‘PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale’ Trailer Reveals Final Boss

Published 2 years ago by

Many gamers probably enjoyed the recent beta for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, and the team at Superbot Entertainment had been hard at work incorporating feedback from those participating into the final game. Now that the beta has come to an end, however, the fighting title has officially gone gold. To celebrate this occasion, Sony has released the opening cinematic for the game, and it shows off several things that were previously unknown about Battle Royale — like the final boss that fans have been speculating about since the game was first revealed.

After months of guessing, gamers can now put an end to the onslaught of speculation, because Polygon Man will indeed be the last opponent they face while progressing through the single-player component of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. The opening cut scene doesn’t feature any gameplay of the actual boss fight — much to the dismay of anxious fans — but it’s pretty cool that Superbot has chosen to resurrect the short-lived PlayStation mascot. Polygon Man was even mentioned in our list of 25 characters that need to be in All-Stars Battle Royale, so his inclusion is appreciated.

The trailer also highlights all 10 of the rivalries that players will become acquainted with while playing through the single-player portion. There are a grand total of 10 rivalries featured in the game, and exclusive footage highlighting the crossover-fueled animosity can be viewed while playing through the title.

Here’s a full list of the rivalries in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, as made apparent within the opening cinematic:

  • Jak & Daxter vs. Ratchet & Clank
  • Nathan Drake vs. Sly Cooper
  • Fat Princess vs. Evil Cole
  • Sir Daniel Fortesque vs. Radek
  • Sackboy vs. Big Daddy
  • Nariko vs. Dante
  • Heihachi vs. Toro
  • Spike vs. Parappa
  • Good Cole vs. Raiden
  • Sweet Tooth vs. Kratos

Overall, the game is looking great, and those who’ve been following the development of PlayStation All-Stars should be content with what they’ve seen thus far. That said, the 20 character roster may still be somewhat of a deterrent to consumers, but the beta did prove that the game is a lot of fun. There’s always the chance that there are a few extras that haven’t been revealed (and downloadable combatants seem like a given), but at the very least Polygon Man should make for a fun boss fight.

PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale will launch on November 20th for PS3 and PS Vita.

    Wouldn’t Good Cole vs Evil Cole make more sense?

  • UnbuildTheGame

    I don’t know much about a few of the characters, but the only rivalries that really make sense to me are Jak & Dax vs. Ratchet & Clank and Spike vs. Parappa. Nathan vs. Sly? Sackboy vs. Big Daddy? Sweet Tooth vs. Kratos? What makes them rivals exactly?

    • jago

      Nathan vs sly is thief vs thief. sweet tooth vs kratos… sweet tooth sort of resembles Hades to me so that could be it. And sackboy vs big daddy could just be exactly what this opening showed. the little sister was paying too much attention to sackboy and big daddy felt he posed a threat of some kind. but that’s just me. I just hope game is really fun and is worth the money.

      • COREY_1993

        Jak & Daxter vs. Ratchet & Clank (Fight to see who is the ps2 masoct, really fitting having these two as rivals and its proably the best rivalry even though i have yet to play their games but im planning on it sometime next year)

        Nathan Drake vs. Sly Cooper (theives)

        Fat Princess vs. Evil Cole (not sure)

        Sir Daniel Fortesque vs. Radek (not sure)

        Sackboy vs. Big Daddy (think this trailer told us XD. Big Baddy is jelous)

        Nariko vs. Dante (Both Ninja Theory characters)

        Heihachi vs. Toro (japenese rivalry)

        Spike vs. Parappa (both of ps1 era)

        Good Cole vs. Raiden (probably something to do with lightning haha)

        Sweet Tooth vs. Kratos (both created by David Jaffe)

    Hey thats the dragon from dbz.

  • COREY_1993

    i dont thin they needed to show any gameplay of the fight. i bet its the opening cinematic of the game so its also understandable.
    i really think the video is alot better than the live action one they did a couple weeks ago.

    My favorite rivalries from the video fight were Ratchet and Clank vs. Jak and Daxter, Nathan Drake vs. Sly Cooper, Sackboy vs. Big Daddy (they made Big Daddy jealous hahaha XD), Nariko vs. Dante, Spike vs. Parappa and Sweet Tooth vs. Kratos (epicness)

    cant wait to play it. im having problems with GAME uk and they keep cancelling my pre-order so i aint happy about it. ill probably pre order it oof amazon

  • Lexph3re

    Makes complete sense why having Good Cole vs Raiden. Raiden claims he is the lightning transformed in MGS4 and Cole is Lighting Incarnate. Awesome combination.

    Fat Princess versus Bad cole might just have been an introduction of Forteques being a knight protecting a princess

  • Joe

    i have the beta and so far am unimpressed. characters are too overpowered. players can simply spam a move on some characters and no one can get close to them. I do like Parappa and fat princess, though. Still, no competition to SSB. most likely i’ll buy it anyway, lol.

    • COREY_1993

      …there is such a thing as block, the only thing you cannot block is supers. and you can roll which is invincible.

  • Matt

    Sick opening cinematic! I’m still thinking about getting this game at some point. It might depend on the reviews.

    • COREY_1993

      dont go by reviews… reviewers are usually biased or they dont have the same interest as you. i already know this game will get low scores by some reviewers because people think its a smash rip off which it is not. ive read plenty articles already of people saying the game is exactly the same as smash but if anyone played it they would see it totally different.

      • Jak Frost

        I Would think that it would sell just fine even if it was just like smash but who knows we will find out soon. and reviewers aren’t biased they just states there opinions and then give reasoning behind them.

  • Eli53

    Im gettin it once i got my PS3 back
