Those of us who took a chance on PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale rather enjoyed it, but the game suffered from poor sales and ultimately failed to have a roster that rivaled that of Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros.

Looking ahead, could Sony create a sequel to the game with a more robust selection of characters that puts the original roster to shame? With a new console generation well underway and a few late additions to the PlayStation 3 library, a PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale 2 could turn out to be fantastic for PlayStation fans everywhere if Sony added these characters for a chance to join in on the fighting action.


One or both – I’m not going to be picky.  Any chance to have a little bit more of time with two of my favorite video game characters of all time is welcomed. They both have distinctly different fighting styles in The Last of Us and that’s enough to have them distinguishable in a competitive fighting game. The duo is now synonymous with PlayStation consoles so a Sony mashup title without the two just doesn’t seem right.

Journey Cloaked Figure

While the robed figure from the PS3’s emotional game doesn’t exactly tackle combat, I don’t doubt that a spin of the robe or a twist of the scarf in a fight against Sackboy or Ratchet and Clank would make for an interesting experience on the Battle Royale stage. Even the quietest of us get the urge to fight from time to time.

Crash Bandicoot


Crash Bandicoot failed to make an appearance in the original game due to licensing issues, but I’ll be damned if a meeting of Sony’s mascots fails to include the original one. Crash is the perfect addition to Battle Royale whether he’s jumping, spinning, or flinging wumpa fruit. Legalities may leave the bandicoot out altogether, but fans would certainly love to have him.


With Cole McGrath being the far more interesting of the two InFamous protagonists, Fetch, AKA Abigail Walker, proved to be one of my favorite supporting characters in any game of the last few years, even meriting her own DLC for the InFamous Second Son. A chance to use Fetch’s neon powers one more time? Anyday.


Knack failed to gain many people’s attention as a launch title for the PS4, but many critics lauded the concept of Knack transforming from a small companion to an oversized beast through the collection of relics, which is something that could become a gameplay favorite after using it in a few rounds of Battle Royale.

Sir Galahad

Sure, his excursion in The Order: 1886 on the PS4 was mediocre at best, but Sir Galahad clearly has a future on Sony platforms, and if you look past all his quicktime events, he turns out to be a rather cool dude (with a lot of really interesting guns).


The main character of Horizon Zero Dawn is already appealing to gamers before her first official title is already out. It may be too soon, but come on – if the way she defeated that robot dinosaur with her bow and arrow doesn’t scream to be included, then what does?

What characters did we leave off this list? Let us know below what Sony character you’d be dying to see if PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale 2 were to really happen. Do you want it to?

  • Ro Tep

    Ico, Blasto, Dart from Legend of Dragoon and why not Crazy Ken. ???

    • Mike Nitroy

      Haha Blasto is a good one ¯_(ツ)_/¯

    • Dustin Backus

      Dart yes

  • orosoy

    I really like Knack’s transformation

  • Lutfi Dawas

    How about a Playstaion All Star Racing game .. kinda like mario cart

    • Mike Nitroy

      I’d try it, Crash and Sackboy both already know how to drive so…. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

    • Dustin Backus

      maybe as an extra mode for the main game , like make it like crash bash, with a racng mode, a normal fighting mode , and a bunch of other wacky mode some of which are based on the main gameplay.

    • Vick Vinegar

      Id really prefer just a sequel.

  • TurtleColonel

    I never got a chance to play the first one but always wanted to. I like this list a lot! I wouldn’t mind seeing Delsin from Second Son, although Cole is the better character overall. It would also be cool to add a clicker from TLOU. Or maybe even a map with clickers roaming around!

    • Mike Nitroy

      I really, really like that idea 🙂

    • Vick Vinegar

      It was absolutely fantastic. Best enjoyed with a room full of friends.

  • Dustin Backus

    Dart from Legend of Dragoon, The Hundred Knight from The Witch And The Hundred Knight, Laharl fro Disgaea, The Amazon from Dragon’s Crown,and Kutaro from Puppeteer also probably Noctis from FFXV. I guess my tastes are mostly 3rd party these day

  • I really hope to see a sequel, I really liked the first one and I still play it sometimes with frends.

  • Now if the sequel added all this characters, I could easily see it being a hit. Each one of these characters are great in their own right.

  • Arvin Jay

    Welp… you forgot Cloud, Squall, or Lightning or Sora(if SQUEX won’t allow FF characters)

  • Arvin Jay

    Welp… you forgot Cloud or Sephiroth, Squall, Tidus, Lightning or Sora(if SQUEX won’t allow FF characters)

  • J Raye Porter

    sora, laura croft, gex, spyro the dragon, and just about anyone from final fantasy

  • Sparkus K. Thunderbolt

    Add Cloud Strife and count me in!

  • costa

    Shadow the hedgehog.jodie Holmes.jin kazama and naruto uzumaki y sakura haruno

  • Vick Vinegar

    Im honestly SHOCKED this game is not in the works. I have never clocked in so many hours in a video game in my life. Also extremely shocked its not out for PSNOW. GET IT TOGETHER SONY!!!

  • Ian Gregory Young

    if they make ring outs and powers aren’t the only way to kill someone I’ll be happy.

  • Kyle Wilson

    Spyro? An oldie but a goodie I would say

  • luke cooper

    The problem is that there is only one established character in this list the reason ssb does so well is because it’s characters are known and loved by all. I mean they need ray man, spyro, gex and so on

  • young.ak

    It needs to happen. But i fail to see why sony would make another one. They tried and promoted the shit out of it, and it still failed. I love the game i play it to this day.

  • Blake Harvey

    Great choices! I think that Sora from Kingdom Hearts would be a great idea, as well.
    Also, I would love to see somethong like this on Xbox One.

    • Sean Timm

      I can’t even handle how badly I want to take on Kratos with a Keyblade! Awesome suggestion!
