Want to see if a Big Daddy would crush Nathan Drake in a fight or if Sly Cooper can edge out Kratos? Well, you’ll have to wait a little longer to play out these fantasy fights in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.
The upcoming Sony mascot brawler has been moved from its planned October 23 release to November 20, as the president of developer SuperBot Entertainment, Chen Park, has announced on the Playstation Blog. All North America and Latin America territories can expect the delay, which is a sad note for those anticipating the promising looking fighter.
As Park mentions, the team is taking the time to consider feedback from the currently closed beta and incorporate any fixes necessary for the game before release. Though I was personally excited for the PlayStation spin on the Super Smash Bros. formula, as long as this time is used to improve the promising title I can’t complain about a short wait. The beta (which will be opening early to PlayStation Plus players soon) should allow for quite a bit of testing, and hopefully the delay translates into more character and stage announcements.
Despite the recent set of leaks, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale is shaping up to be a great offering, as evidenced by our E3 preview, and an extra month of development can only benefit the project. Most importantly, I can only hope this gives them the time to put Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon into the game.
