PlayStation All-Stars On Vita To Be Virtually Identical To PS3 Version

By Ishaan . September 20, 2012 . 4:10pm


The PlayStation Vita version of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale is being developed by Bluepoint Games, the same developers who also worked on the God of War Collection, Ico and Shadow of the Colossus Collection, and Metal Gear Solid HD Collection.


On the PlayStation Blog, Bluepoint say that the PlayStation Vita version of the game will be virtually identical to the PlayStation 3 version. PlayStation All-Stars will run at 60fps on both platforms and will be cross-compatible with the PlayStation 3 version for either local or online multiplayer.


Additionally, Sony also released a new trailer for the game at Tokyo Game Show. You can watch this above.

    i’d be lying if i didn’t say i’m actually looking foward to this

  • British_Otaku

    Sounds great, now they’ve got be hoping Smash Bros has some major cross compatibility between the 3DS and Wii U version too (being near identical and able to cross local and multiplayer would make them need to make a lot of cuts).

    Probably getting it for the Vita in the future.

      They mentioned this when they first announced the new SSB game, that the WiiU and 3DS version will be able to interact with each other. How I have no idea since there’s no actual news out yet.

    • Smash Bros. on 3DS and Wii U will be similar but different games. Sakurai has mentioned being able to transfer characters from one to the other, but they won’t be the exact same game.

  • Joom

    I’ll take 3 please.

    • Budgiecat

      3? Like Cloud, Lara Croft and Crash Bandicoot?

  • KingGunblader

    Sony… We’re so close. My wallet is open and I’m gently fingering my $60 pre-order money. I’m gonna spend but… this game seriously needs some RPG love. Both the PS1 and the PS2 are both well known for their RPG libraries, and I want to see that reflected in All-Stars, be it someone from FF, Tales, DQ, Xeno, it doesn’t matter to me.

    • Domii

      I’m in the same position as you. I’m so close to make that purchase, but I can’t do it with the roster looking this thin on jrpg or ps2 classic characters in general.

      • But… thats not all is it? 

        • Domii

          No its actually the only concern I have about the game so far. Everything else is pure win.    

          • Well wont there be hidden characters like in Smash Bros?
            There better be.

  • xavier axol

    i seriously hope that bluepoint would step in and make the vita version of borderlands 2. randy wants it, the people who had been bugging yoshida over tweeter wants it, and i want it. so yoshida make it happen!, after all he’s the man incharge of worldwide studios. he got super powers beyond regular human beings and if he wants a particular game being made, then will make it happen.

  • Learii

    no new chars huh?

  • Kris

    Man, is there anything Bluepoint can’t do? They’re awesome, like the Criterion of game remasters (I’m talking about the film distributor, not the company that does Burnout, but they’re good too).

  • Domii

    I’m surprise Sony hasn’t announce any new characters at TGS. I would think that being that their rich PlayStation history has so many beloved Japanese characters this would be the perfect time to get Japan on board with this game, but I guess not. We’ll see though since TGS just got started basically.     

  • ZEROthefirst

    I’d be lying if I said I was looking forward to this SSB4 hold-over. Honestly the game doesn’t look bad, but character the roster and special only kills (taking away any real competitiveness) just aren’t doing anything to make me willing to spend more than $20 for this.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    I am really interested on whether Japanese game will bite this game or not.

    The character rooster there for my opinion here is not really appealing to Japanese gamer except for Heihachi and Toro. I still believe here, Sony should add some characters from their old PS1 or PS2 era to bring some nostalgia factor here.

    Alundra? Dart from Legend of Dragoon? Arc from Arc the Lad? or even Minamoto Yoshitsune from Genji.

    Adding those characters will appeal and increase the interest of the gamer which loves the old Sony era and of course increase the hype for which obscure character can come out for the next new instalment.

    • PreyMantis

      I agree. With the roster consisting of mostly Western characters, it does kinda look unappealing to the Japanese market.

      •  I hope the rumor’d Kat will be in the Roster from Gravity Rush… that’ll persuade a few Japanese gamers.

    • Thirded. I’m honestly kinda disappointed with the roster. And I’m not even Japanese.

  • PreyMantis

    Honestly, I’m kinda neutral with this game. I like the idea of a bunch of different Sony characters brawling, but with characters that I don’t care about, it kinda makes it a hard buy for me. I guess the only thing I can do to make this game a bit more enjoyable is to treat the characters as new characters that I have never seen before. In short, I want to make it like playing Street Fighter for the first time with characters I’ve never seen.

    • SpaceOfSoul

       I feel the same way. There’s something missing to this game… It’s a neat idea but its just not making me have that “day one purchase” feeling. It maybe due to the character roster, I feel like most of these are just added cause they want the game to be “cool”, but I feel like they were trying too hard.
      I’ll be buying the game, only for its trophies right now…. And hopes that my friends will get this too so we can play online.

  • Dexward

    So I got in the beta, and so far it’s a good game, just not in my alley since I’m not a big fighting game fan.

  • I still wonder why won’t they ask anymore 3rd party companies,… Well just look at it, most of it is just character from games that have English translation or originally english game but why don’t they ask the JAP or used the old character from RPG? They had those SONY and some other western stuff but how about asking SEGA and asking things like VC or some other companies… It’s not a bad game but a little pale and slow-paced compare to blazblue. If they make a game for crossover= fan service than they must at least pay attention to fan request… BTW don’t give me the marketing crap that say: “HEY! We got your requested characters as DLCs!” That’s bull crap, unless they bring us surprise in those unexpected dlc and also no single item dlc please if they do then make a list and release it.
