New character reveals coming later today.

PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale will launch on October 23 in North America and on October 24 in Europe, Sony has announced.

Pre-order bonuses for the game include exclusive costumes for every character:

(There are more than ten characters in the game. They just haven’t been revealed yet.)

Two new characters are set to be revealed later today (6:00 p.m. Pacific time) at EVO in Las Vegas.

When the game itself is launched, you’ll have “plenty of opportunities” to unlock multiple costumes for each character, however, the costumes above are exclusive to pre-orders.

Thanks, PlayStation Blog.

    Already preordered at Amazon, though I was hoping it’d release a little later, because Fall is starting to rape my wallet.

    Costumes. Already better than SSB!
    No, joke, but costumes are nice.

  • Charlie

    Awesome sauce! I was hoping for costumes in this game. I love me some dress-up.

  • Zero

    I sorta hope they release a demo. I want to try this game out.

  • KingOptimusOrigins111

    Fuck Yeah

  • KingKelloggTheWaffleHaggler

    Only 18 total characters?….thats not enough =

    • Zero

      I bet more will be released as DLC.

      Just the way things work these days.

      Edit : Not to say I think that is ok. I don’t think character should be added later as DLC. I’m old school! I like unlocking additional characters in the game.

      • KingKelloggTheWaffleHaggler

        I agree,all characters should be in the disc!

    • Anime101210

      Where does it say only 18 characters?

      • KingKelloggTheWaffleHaggler

        I swear it waas there -_-

        • Zero

          Sal must be trolling us all? He is all knowing??? My god!!!

    Call me when Lightning is there.

    • KingOptimusOrigins111

      I guess never then.

    • xMCXx

      Do you want the other douchebags from the FF13-Universe, too? xD

    • KingKelloggTheWaffleHaggler

      Screw that how about we get some that are actually Iconic and important to the PS brand,not the ones from the first sell out of the series

    • Sovereign Gale

      It’s funny, because no one would be so sarcastic if Sasule had said that he wanted Cloud Strife to be announced. You’d all be like “HURR HURR I KNOW ME TOO. <3"

      • KingOptimusOrigins111

        Um, maybe because Cloud is infinity times better than Lightning.

        • Sovereign Gale

          Which isn’t my point. I’m saying that you’d have actually respected his opinion if he’d actually said he wanted Cloud or some other “icon” (lol) to be added to the roster. You know, as opposed to being an ass.

          • KingOptimusOrigins111

            He has his opinions we have ares, no one is being a ass but the people who can’t accept the replies of not wanting lightning in the game.

    UPDATE!

    The newest additions to the growing PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale lineup are Heihachi Mishima from Tekken and Sony’s feline mascot, Toro Inoue.
