PlayStation All Stars Battle Royale DLC – Kat & Emmett detailed
Seth Killian of Sony Santa Monica has discussed new details on the DLC characters Kat and Emmett for PlayStation All Stars Battle Royale.
In a interview with Push Square Killian stated that both characters are still early in design with Kat even being broken at this point.
“I’ve been really happy with the way that Emmett’s trending on paper at least. He’s got a lot of what they call the ‘Build and Battle’ system,” he said.
“Starhawk had a lot of great technology where you’re always dropping crazy things from the sky, and we’ve tried to really implement that to represent the character. You can assume that some gun attacks will end up in his design as well, but we really wanted to accentuate this construction mechanic.”
Meanwhile, Gravity Rush’s Kat is “a bit broken right now”, Killian said, but even now is already proving distinctive.
“Kat moves around the screen right now like nobody else. I’m sure, even if it doesn’t stay in the way that it is right now, that she’ll have a lot of crazy movement options and definitely the ability to play with gravity,” he said.
“Obviously, she’s immune from it, and she’ll have the opportunity to exploit that in battle. She’s got a lot of great combos already actually.”
Kat’s inclusion was motivated by a number of factors.
“She is a new character, but she had a huge impact as soon as Gravity Rush released,” Killian noted.
“Obviously, as one of the stars of the PlayStation Vita, and with PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale being on the same platform, we wanted to unite those families. And also, we just need more ladies in the game,” he added.
“Kat’s an awesome one too, because she’s obviously an interesting character with unique abilities, so everyone on the team was really excited about adding her to the game. Thankfully, we were able to get the Gravity Rush team on board, and now it’s full steam ahead.”
PlayStation All Stars Battle Royale is out now for the PlayStation 3 and PS Vita and the DLC currently does not have a release date, but it will be free for 2 weeks after its released.
