Rumored since late last year, Sony has finally pulled the veil off of their mascot fighting game, developed by SuperBot Entertainment. The character roster includes Sweet Tooth, Kratos, Fat Princess, Parappa, and more, all brawling in front of iconic Sony locales. Unlike Smash Bros. however, Sony’s universe is filled with deeper, adult themes, so these stages are certainly of a more intense, adult-ish variety.
Previews bill Battle Royale for what it is: A Smash Bros. clone with a new skin. The frenzied, uncontrolled nature of the brawling looks intact, with players battling for AP points, leading to franchise-inspired specials.
Sony is relaying more information come E3, including more of the character roster. Battle Royale is on Sony’s slate for a 2012 release, likely a holiday season affair.
