As if it is much surprise to anyone, sources have confirmed that Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale will have downloadable content that comes in the form of characters, as well as stages. As far as I can tell, this is going to be one of the big things that sets PSASBR away from Super Smash Bros, considering SSB was never able to deliver downloadable characters. As far as what characters will be released, everything is left to speculation. I know that some fan favorite picks include Old Snake, Kat from Gravity Rush, Lightning from Final Fantasy XIII, Cloud from Final Fantasy 7, Crash Bandicoot, and Spyro the Dragon.

Downloadable characters are something that every fighting game should invest in, and it’s awesome to hear that PSASBR will be making it happen. The stages are a little bit more “meh” when it comes down to it, but I guess it’s something outside of character skins, the one thing all fighting games whore out to their fan base.

I know most of the guys at Gaming Unwrapped are going to be picking up Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale, are you?
