Modders Help Bring PlayStation All-Star Battle Royale Home
By inserting its cast into Super Smash Bros Brawl.
Many have made compared and contrasted the upcoming PlayStation All-Star Battle Royale and Nintendo's Super Smash Bros franchise, but never before has anyone tried to merging the two. Four members of the thriving Super Smash Bros modding community have managed to insert the majority of the cast from Sony's upcoming mascot fighter into the game that it quite clearly derives most of its inspiration from.
The project, according to its authors, is intended to celebrate "the 'Playstation Battle Royale All-Stars' game, the copy of Super Smash Bros." Ouch. Anyhow, other than the absence of Colonel Radec from Killzone, everyone else is included. But the best part is how several new characters who "really wanted to be in Playstation Battle Royale All-Stars" are in on the fun.
This includes Old Snake from Metal Gear Solid 4, Niko Bellic from Grand Theft Auto 4, Isaac Clark from Dead Space, Commander Shepard from Mass Effect, John Marston from Red Dead Redemption, Kazuya Mishima from Tekken, Lara Croft of Tomb Raider fame, and even Tomba. Though oddly enough, there's still no Crash Bandicoot.
For those interested, and knowledgeable of how to handle Smash Bros mods, simply nab your free copy here. At the very least, it's totally free. And those who can give it a spin, please let the rest of us know if it does indeed play better than Sony's efforts. Those who have been giving the various betas a spin… and who have not been all that impressed… would like to know especially.
