Good news everyone, as we finally have a release date for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. When the fighting game was announced this April, there was just a "later this year" launch window attached to it. Now, we can pick up PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale on October 23rd for the PS3 and PS Vita. No matter which version you pick up, you will be able to battle friends on either system thanks to cross-play. Anyone who pre-orders the game (even those who already have) will gain access to an alternate set of costumes for the characters, which you can use as soon as you pick up your copy. The photo below shows the costumes for the eight confirmed characters and two mystery characters set to be unveiled in a matter of hours, but Sony assures there will be far more than 10 playable characters in the game (wait for Comic-Con!). You can also unlock a ton more costumes for the characters while playing the game, but the alternate set shown below is only through pre-order.
PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale will have the price revealed later for both the PS3 and PS Vita versions. For those interested in owning both versions, it seems a PS3/Vita bundle will be announced in the near future. There will be no special edition of the game, but there may be a digital version that will work on both the PS3 and PS Vita.
