PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale Sequel Planned
Sony's ill-advised (but nonetheless excellent) PlayStation equivalent of Super Smash Bros looks to be getting a sequel.

Sony's PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale might not have made much of an impact in the sales charts, but that hasn't stopped Sony from greenlighting a sequel.
Two job positions at SuperBot Entertainment seem to suggest another PlayStation All-Stars game is in the works. One is for art director, the other for game designer.
The art designer position discusses PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale and it's art style, stating the game "by definition brings together elements ranging from an incredibly wide range of artistic styles, requires a strong and unifying vision to present a cohesive and polished product".
It will be the successful candidates job to produce this vision, while "guiding the creation of art assets from concept through completion while helping develop new technology to facilitate this and maintain proper performance."
Meanwhile the new game designer will be tasked with creating new game modes and designing gameplay systems. The candidate must have "a near encyclopedic knowledge of modern games, with emphasis on PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale" while "knowledge of fighting games, their systems and mechanics a serious plus".
Sounds to us like SuperBot are hiring for an all-new PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale game and, as you'll see from our review of the game, that makes us very happy indeed.
