PlayStation All-Stars was a decent game released last year that was essentially Sony’s answer to the Smash Bros. series. You basically got a bunch of big named (and not so big named) Sony characters together along with some third party characters that appeared on a Sony console over the years and let them wail on each other in a great manifestation of fanboy fantasy violence. It seemed initially that big things were planned for the game, with character DLC and level DLC coming out at a fairly regular pace. Unfortunately, the game wasn’t as big as a hit as Sony was hoping and they ended up ending their relationship with the studio responsible for the game. It seemed unlikely in recent months that we would see any more from the game, and Sony confirmed as much yesterday, stating:
“There will not be any new DLC characters or environments released for PS All Stars. We were proud to work with SuperBot Entertainment and they created a great game, but the characters that have already been released to-date represent the full content for PS All Stars.”
Thus, the last character pack for the game will be Isaac Clark and Zeus, something that already came out earlier this year. While it was a solid concept and actually a fairly entertaining game, it always felt like it was missing a little something and never quite resonated with gamers the way Smash Bros. did.
Despite the bad news for fans of the game, Sony isn’t completely cutting off support just yet. They announced that they will be fixing some balance issues with the game and will be releasing a variety of alternate costumes for free for several of the characters. They are also aggressively looking into the issue of title belts not being correctly attributed to certain individuals, but there is as of yet no real fix ready. So no new DLC, no new characters, and no new levels. But hey, free costumes, right?
