Sony and developer SuperBot Entertainment have confirmed that their upcoming PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale fighting game has been delayed and is now scheduled to appear towards the end of November in North America and Europe.
PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale is Sony’s answer to Nintendo’s hugely popular Super Smash Bros. series, featuring various characters from games made by Sony and by other developers.
We already saw plenty of videos
with already-announced characters while quite a few leaks
have revealed some of the fighters that have yet to be confirmed for the new game.
Now, after hearing that the game will be the first to benefit from the new Cross Buy
system, meaning those who get it on PS3 get a free copy of it on PS Vita, Sony and SuperBot have confirmed that PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale won’t make its initial October release date.
The new launch dates for the game are November 20, in North and Latina America, November 21, for most of Europe, November 22, in Australia, and November 23, for the UK and Ireland.
“As you know, we at SuperBot have set high benchmarks for PlayStation All-Stars. Our goal is to deliver a fun, well balanced and compelling gameplay experience that pays homage to all of these incredible characters. This delay will enable us to spend more time polishing, tuning and incorporating some of the great feedback from the current limited beta to ensure we are creating the best possible fighting game experience,” the developer said.
“While it is our greatest desire to put this game into the hands of our fans as soon as possible, we do not want to do so at the sake of quality. We feel the additional time will be well worth the wait, and are excited to know that our fans will have the ultimate brawler in time for the holiday.”
Sony and SuperBot have promised to fans, however, that more Battle Royale news will be revealed this week, during Gamescom 2012, so fans will have quite a few things to look forward to.
