Square Enix Characters in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale?
Sony is in talks with Square Enix to feature characters like Cloud and Lightning in upcoming crossover fighting video game PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.
"Square-Enix have great characters and a great place in PS history, but all of our discussions about these things are covered by non-disclosure agreements, so we can't talk about even whether we're talking about characters," said Seth Killian, lead game designer at Sony Computer Entertainment Santa Monica Studio to a fan who asked if Square Enix characters will feature in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.
The game is developed by SuperBot Entertainment in conjunction with SCE Santa Monica Studio and published by Sony Computer Entertainment.
The game will have a single-player mode and a multiplayer mode.
In single-player mode, the player must neutralize several randomly-selected opponents. This is followed by character-specific battles and the final battle against the game's boss and antagonist, Polygon Man. In the multiplayer mode, there are time-based matches, stock-based matches and kill-limit matches. Players have to kill more characters in a limited time period while in time-based matches. Stock-based matches have players attempting to be the last one alive. In kill-limit matches, players compete to reach a certain number of kills. The game also has a single-player challenge mode, where players have to complete specific objectives.
The first downloadable content was announced Nov. 15 for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale and will arrive in early 2013. It will have two new characters, Kat from Gravity Rush and Emmett Graves from Starhawk. Both the characters will be available for free in the first two weeks of their release.
PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale will release on Nov. 20 on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita.
