Sony’s mascot-brawler, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, seems to be getting a sequel. Superbot Entertainment, the developer of the first PlayStation All-Stars, has posted two job listings to Gamasutra, calling for a Art Director and Game Designer. Although the studio doesn’t flat out say it’s a sequel, some of the job requirements seem to indicate that it’s a likely project.
Below are the descriptions which strongly suggests a sequel to PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, which launched on both PS3 and PS Vita, is in the works.
A project such as PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, which 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. The Art Director is responsible for defining this vision, guiding the creation of art assets from concept through completion while helping develop new technology to facilitate this and maintain proper performance. In addition, the Art Director is responsible for guiding the overall advancement of the Art Department, through skills development of art teams and with an eye to the future across multiple projects. He or she will work with the art leads to guide all visual aspects of the game, including UI, front end shell, concept art, environments, characters, animation, effects, and cinematics. He or she will work with the programming leads in the planning, prioritizing and implementation of new technology. He or she will also represent SuperBot to external vendors, IP holders, and the publisher, explaining and demonstrating the vision and how individual characters, environments, or other assets will fit.
- Must have a near encyclopedic knowledge of modern games, with emphasis on PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale
- Knowledge of fighting games, their systems and mechanics a serious plus
Although PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale launched to lukewarm reception, there seems to be enough demand to warrant a sequel. Would you like to see another Sony mascot brawler?
