PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale Trailer

The Sony crossover spectacular PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale has been something PlayStation fans have been clamoring for since it’s surprise announcement last year. Featuring twenty of the most popular characters on Sony consoles, PSABR is looked at as a clone for Nintendo’s own Super Smash Bros. franchise. In the past we’ve seen character reveals, level announcements and a few cinematics to even whet your appetite. Now, we have the opening cinematic showcasing all of the playable characters as well as the exclusive reveal of the end boss.

If you’re not familiar with who we’re talking about, let me reacquaint you with Polygon Man. Polygon Man was briefly the mascot for Sony PlayStation here in North America. Polygon Man was used to show the power of the original PlayStation before it was released. Polygon Man did not last long however, as he was quickly replaced by characters from launch titles, such as Sofia (Battle Arena Toshinden), Parappa the Rapper and Crash Bandicoot. It looks as though Polygon Man is out for his revenge.

What do you geeks think? This isn’t exactly what I expected as an end boss, but I think it’s a pretty  interesting idea.
