Seth Killian, lead designer of Santa Monica Studio, posted an update for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale on the official PlayStation Blog today, revealing the intro cinematic to the game as well as the final boss.
“I’m here today on behalf of SuperBot Entertainment, Bluepoint Games, and Santa Monica Studio to announce that PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale has gone gold on PS3 and PS Vita!” said Seth. “All of us are extremely grateful for the help from our beta players in testing our networking, and thrilled to see the amazing response from all of you that played the beta, which is just a small slice of the full game.
In celebration of this milestone, we wanted to share something special as a small “thank you!” to all the amazing PlayStation fans who have helped us come so far. Today we’re officially unveiling the opening cinematic sequence to the game. We’ve been pretty tight-lipped about our final boss, but if you hang in until the end you’ll get a glimpse of the villainous mastermind that’s returned from the depths of PlayStation history to pull the strings in All-Stars.”
Seth spent some time as a tournament fighter before working on PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale for Sony’s Santa Monica Studio, which he states has been thrilling to “revisit so many great memories from my own PlayStation history with the characters and stages of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.”
