Playstation All-Stars is a pretty serious fighting game, even though it is based on a ridiculous premise where Kratos can fight Fat Princess. Game director Omar Kendall revealed how they managed to achieve that balance.
“I think there’s something very absurd in the basic premise of a game where Kratos is fighting PaRappa the Rapper. It does lend itself to a bit of ridiculousness,” he told CVG.
“Just based on the premise, we’ve got a no-holds-barred approach to move design, level design, different ideas for systems – there’s a sort of tongue-in-cheek light-heartedness that the game just intrinsically has.
“At the same time we’re pretty serious competitive fighting game dudes, or at least a large contingency of the guys at SuperBot are, so I think despite the ridiculous nature of some of the elements, at its heart Playstation All-Stars is a pretty serious fighting game,” Kendall added.
“We really embraced the mash-up concept. We allowed ourselves to really embrace all sides of the type of game Playstation All-Stars represents.”
The game comes out later this year for the PS3.
