Sony’s PlayStation franchise-specific fighting title is something fans have wanted since Super Smash Bros.‘ arrival on the Nintendo 64. Now, with any luck, it could be arriving on the PS Vita as well as the PS3. PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale game director Omar Kendall says, “stay tuned,” as far as a cross-platform fighting game goes. While it is definitely possible, how would it affect the overall game, and could the two titles be cross-playable in some way?
We’ve covered a lot of information so far on the wildly anticipated fighter, including a hands-on preview, and our thoughts about the future of its development. This latest tidbit of information is certainly exciting for those looking forward to an alternative to Nintendo‘s popular title, and it’s not too difficult to believe that a cross-platform launch could be in the works — earlier today it was announced that Sly Cooper: Thieves In Time will be released in PS Vita and PS3 flavors when it lands later this year and the cross-platform functionality already works with WipEout 2048.
Considering Nintendo’s plans for its upcoming Wii U system involving interaction between the console itself and its subsidiary controller screens, could Sony be planning a similar move for PlayStation All-Stars? Sony seems to have enough of the Super Smash Bros. style nailed down while still remaining a unique fighter, but what do you think, Ranters: Are you curious to see what Sony and SuperBot Entertainment might have planned for a multi-console release, or are you just excited to make up for lost time with beloved PlayStation franchise characters?
PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale is still in development by SuperBot Entertainment and will feature PlayStation-specific characters such as Metal Gear Solid‘s Solid Snake, God of War‘s Kratos, Twisted Metal‘s Sweet Tooth, and others. It is expected to be released later this year.
