Over the past few weeks Developer SuperBot Entertainment has been revealing details of new characters that will feature in the upcoming PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale.
The latest to join the roster is Raiden from the Metal Gear Solid series, who will be bringing his “high-frequency blade and cyborg ninja abilities” to the mix. Interesting to note that his appearance in the game marks the first time he has been playable in a fighting game!
“Raiden is a close-ranged fighter who is capable of building tremendous amounts of AP with various combos and juggles. He uses a special chain-attack system that lets him branch off into different combo attacks depending on the string of attacks input by the player. He has plenty of ways to both start and end combos, whether they be on the ground or in mid-air.”
“Raiden can also defend against attackers attempting to interrupt his combos from behind with reverse stabs and parries, which is useful in a four-player free-for-all. In true Metal Gear Solid fashion, Raiden’s super attacks allow him to take full advantage of his slicing abilities by requiring players to use the right analog stick to perform lethal slices to swiftly dispatch adversaries.”
You can see Raiden in action in the character video below:
The developer also announced a new stage, Time Station, which is an old-school stage where players engage in battle. Time Station, which is the central hub that connects the different levels of Ape Escape together, is tied in with Spike’s inclusion in the roster and will have Specter in the background.
PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale will be available on November 20th in the US, November 21st in most of Europe, and November 23rd in the UK.
