PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale Adds Minions, Heavenly Sword DLC Stage

By Spencer . February 8, 2013 . 2:04am

imageKat from Gravity Rush and Emmett from Starhawk aren’t the only PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale downloadable items coming in development. Superbot also created minions, super deformed PlayStation characters that taunt players by dancing on their opponent’s graves when you do a multi-kill.


These 18 minions are scheduled to come out on next week alongside the two playable characters:


– Ape Escape Professor Minion

– Buzz! Buzz Minion

– Escape Plan Lil Minion

– Fat Princess Fat Princess Ninja Minion

– God of War Colossus of Rhodes Minion

– Everybody’s Golf Suzuki Minion

– inFamous Lucy Kuo Minion

– Killzone Rico Minion

– Sly Cooper Carmelita Fox Minion

– Twisted Metal Mr Grimm Minion Minion

– Uncharted Elena Fisher Minion

– Warhawk Eucadian Soldier Minion

– Toro Kuro Minion

– Jak and Daxter Ashelin Minion

– Starhawk Logan Minion

– Fat Princess Fat Princess Pirate Minion

– God of War Polyphemus Minion

– Killzone’s Visari Minion


PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale will also get a DLC level from Heavenly Sword’s Fearless chapter. This area morphs into a futuristic WipEout track while you’re in the heat of a battle. Kat and Emmett are free. It’s unclear how much these other items will cost.

    Meh, I barely know who most of those minions are. I just want Raven as Kats minion

  • Yes! Dat Kat =^_^=

  • I really hope they do more DLC characters later on. Or else this game is just going to flop again after this DLC gets boring. Only because the roster still feels small.

    Other than that.


    • Ferrick

      you do know that superbot (the ones behind this game), are disbanded few days ago right ?

      • Tonton Ramos

        At least Santa Monica will deliver the future of PSASBR.

      • Robert Hendrie

        disbanded? They didn’t disband, they just moved on from the game to do other stuff

        • Ferrick

          ah, i guess i was wrong, the only “disband” part was the ties between sony and superbot, my bad

  • Zonic505

    On the Asian PS site, there’s mention of separate minion packs, containing 6 each. I guess this means they won’t be free….

    Edit: Might as well include the site link:

  • MrJechgo

    BUY IT… or get it for free, but GET IT!

    The game is fun, but it’s not in the best position right now. I’d say that to all who has the game, get the DLC and show Sony and Santa Monica Studio that we care!

    • Edzo

      the cast of characters is very lackluster and thats whats keeping me from going back to play it more. thats great that kat is free since she is now the best character in the game but i doubt the next ones will be. im not going to pay extra for a good cast that should of been there already.

      • MrJechgo

        Very lackluster? Dude, which 1st-party Sony character did you expect to see then? Sony pretty much filled the roster with their most iconic characters; the rest is either way too obscure or 3rd-party, and that now includes Crash and Spyro.

        • Yep. Very few 1st Party characters. I think all they have left is EVE Online for 1st Party characters. But that isn’t a PlayStation game, I think.

          • MrJechgo

            Actually, here’s a bunch of 1st-parties that can still make it:
            – Ico vs Wander (Shadow of the Colossus)
            – Arc (Arc the Lad) vs Jaster Rogue (Rogue Galaxy)
            – Leonard (White Knight Chronicles) vs Dart (Legend of Dragoon)
            – Rau Utu (Mark of Kri) vs Toan (Dark Cloud)
            – Finn (Sorcery) vs Ellen (Folklore)
            – Vahn (Legend of Legaia) vs Rudy Roughnight (Wild Arms)
            (I paired them according to the rival cutscenes)

          • Testsubject909

            I don’t think Level 5 is first party.

            edit: Actually I don’t think most of the characters you’ve stated are anywhere near first party… If not all the characters you just stated.

          • MrJechgo

            They all come from Sony’s catalog of IPs. The developpers might be 3rd-party, but the IP belongs to the publisher in the end.

    • Sylveria

      *Raises hand* What if you don’t care and don’t think the game is any fun?

      • MrJechgo

        Then why did you bother replying then… ¬¬ ?

  • Arvin Jay

    still no final fantasy? xD

    • TheExile285

      So? SE owns FF (and KH) so if they say, no that’s final

      • I think Arvin’s referencing a Neogaf post where someone was claiming that Final Fantasy started on the PSX, so it should be in this game. =P

        • TheExile285

          FF started on the NES and even Smash doesn’t have any FF reps for the Nintendo exclusive games (FF1-4 I think)

          • You either missed or ignored the entire point I was trying to clarify. Try reading it again. =P

            Someone on NeoGaf claimed that FF started on PSX, therefore it belongs there. If I’m correct in my assumption, Arvin here is referencing said post: making fun of it and its author. No one here in this comment section is claiming that FF characters belong in Battle Royale.

          • TheExile285

            oh so its a joke? my mistake. I don’t use NeoGaf but I figured it was just a case of false information. That happens alot on GameFAQ (which, unfortunately i do use)

  • Minos

    Wow…how usefull…

  • amagidyne

    “This area morphs into a futuristic WipEout track while you’re in the heat of a battle.”

    That wound hasn’t healed, Sony. ;_;

  • Guest

    Lucy Kuo? Why didn’t they pick Zeke instead?

    • Jake Deerberg

      They already have Zeke as a minion

  • Sounds like a case of too little too late

    • MrJechgo

      I don’t really think that minions are game-changers compared to actual playable characters. I see them as an added bonus.

      • I’m saying that no one is going to care about this game.

  • No minion from Gravity Rush? Boo!

    • TheExile285

      We SHOULD be getting a minion, a costume, combat trials and an arcade scenario for each of the DLC characters because they said DLC characters would get everything the on-disk characters get.

  • William Carpenter

    Escape Plan? What a bizarre choice.

  • lordroto

    2 killzone minions, 2 fat princess minions. How can they be grasping at straws this badly? It’s like sony is THIS strapped for character

    • Sony knows they have a very low amount of fan appealing characters. If anything, they should’ve added Patapon and Locoroco minions.

  • KingGunblader

    I haven’t played this game since I bought it back in January. I’ll probably try out the new characters and then not play it some more. :/

    Some of these minions are pretty cool I guess, but I’m not buying a single one if they’re a penny over 99 cents.

  • JoJo_649

    There are two fat princess minions yet not Syd or Raven?! seriously sony, we never cared for fat princess, it’s not iconic and it’s not even a great game, stop shoving stuff from that game here, instead start shoving gravity rush content.

  • Kawashima

    No Gravity Rush minion? You would think Dusty or Syd could have been good minions

    • TheExile285

      Kat & Emmett should have their minions included with them and not as seperate DLC. Dusty is with Kat in Battle so it’s probably between Raven & Syd. I’d prefer Raven as the minion TBH
