‘PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale’ Indicated in Latest Sony Domain Registration
Super Smash Bros., in its many incarnations, is a hot commodity of the game industry; you would be hard pressed to discover an American community in which peers don’t wile much of their days away waxing philosophical about how broken of a character Meta Knight while they smash one another’s faces in with their favorite, non-Meta Knight Nintendo characters. Being that the title is over a decade old, it’s more than a little surprising that neither Sony or Microsoft has capitalized on the mascot-heavy formula to produce their own competitive multiplayer phenomenon. That was until yesterday, when a not-so-subtle domain was registered by Sony: http://www.playstationallstarsbattleroyale.com.
That’s not suspicious. The domain registration shouldn’t be surprising as not only has Super Smash Bros. has proven to be a runaway success in its own right, a point I feel inclined to reiterate, but also because rumors of this nature have been swirling around Sony since last November when speculation outed a Sony brawler entitled Title Fight. Unlike PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, no concrete evidence emerged in regards to Title Fight and the game ultimately disappeared into the ether. This, at the very least, appears to be an extension off of that idea.
Nothing is official yet outside of this confirmed domain, but rumors have cited that the title will say an official debut this Thursday, April 26 on Spike TV. In the highly probable chance that these speculations are confirmed as true, I have only one thing to say: dibs on Nathan Drake.
