Just a few hours ago, Sony revealed PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale – a Super Smash Bros-style fighting game for the PS3. In a new interview over at the PlayStation Blog, SuperBot Entertainment’s Game Director, Omar Kendall explains how they integrated some of the more unusual characters into the game. There’s quite a bit of gameplay footage shown and we get to learn a bit more about the level design.

Perhaps most interesting are the details from the blog itself. When it comes to the gameplay, there’s support for up to four players simultaneously and you can play cooperatively in addition to having free for all competition. Kendall goes on to explain how the game will feature “cool game modes” with both single player and multiplayer in mind. The focus is on online play though, which apparently includes a robust tournament mode.

PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale releases this holiday season for the PS3. More details on the game will be announced at E3, so stay tuned.
