A screenshot from the game. You can't say that doesn't look like Smash Bros.

It has been confirmed that Sony is developing a Smash Bros.-esque fighting game, featuring a roster of characters from Sony’s library of games.

PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, as bitter of a pill to swallow in its cheesy title, is as much of a knock-off to the Smash Bros. series created by Nintendo.

According to an article on, some comments on the title taken from the official announcement release stated:

With PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, we set out to make an experience accessible enough for all PlayStation fans to enjoy while also creating something deep enough for the serious fighting game aficionado. We think this “accessible yet deep” strategy is the perfect way to bring PlayStation fans of all stripes together.

The game is set to feature game modes for both single and multiplayer, with a focus on online play which features a robust tournament mode. Players will be able to compete against each other as well as play cooperatively.

Currently the confirmed roster includes the likes of  Kratos, Sweet Tooth, Parappa, Fat Princess, Colonel Radec, and Sly Cooper, with more names to be confirmed as more details arrise.

For now, watch this trailer for the game, and make your own opinions on it.
