This article is about the non-Tekken game, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. For more details see the PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale Wiki.

PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale (プレイステーション オールスター・バトルロイヤル?), is a crossover platform fighting game released for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. It was developed at SuperBot Entertainment along with SCE Santa Monica Studios and was published by Sony Computer Entertainment. It was released on November 20, 2012 in North America, November 21, 2012 in Europe, November 22, 2012 in Australia, November 23, 2012 in the United Kingdom, and January 31, 2013 in Japan.

Inclusion of Tekken

On July 6, 2012 Sony revealed that Heihachi Mishima would become a playable character. Heihachi takes his appearances from his younger design from Tekken Tag Tournament 2. The Mishima Fundoshi costume is unlocked at Level 10, with Heihachi wearing a traditional Japanese loincloth that appears in Tekken 4. Heihachi also reverts to his old man appearance from Tekken 3 to Tekken 6. The Mishima Coat was originally a pre-order bonus and later part of the "Heavy Hitters" free costume pack. Heihachi wears an expensive fur-lined jacket over an equally expensive white suit as seen as Tekken 3 during his Boss Fight and cutscenes.

Heihachi's movelist is based on Heihachi's moves from the Tekken series. He has button commands that utilize attacks for each limbs. In the original game, the upper 2 buttons of the controller performs punching attacks and lower 2 buttons do kicking attacks. In All-Stars this was changed so the Square button commands punch attacks, while the Triangle button does kicks.

Kuma also appears in the game as a minion and as an assist in Heihachi's Level 2 Super Move.

Other Characters

Many characters from the Tekken series appear as Icons, which can be unlocked by leveling up Heihachi. Tekken characters appearing as icons are: Xiaoyu, Jack-6, Raven, Eddy Gordo, Mokujin, Jinpachi, Nina, Sergei Dragunov, Miguel Caballero Rojo, King, Devil Jin, Armor King and Marshall Law,

Trivia

  • Heihachi appeared in a trailer for All-Stars before Tekken Tag Tournament 2 was released.
  • Heihachi's up+circle move is called the "Bowling Pin Toss"; it has Heihachi throw a Heihachi Trophy in an upwards arc that will deal damage to the first enemy it hits. The move also has a chance of him spawning and serving a "Tekken Ball", which all players can then use to deal damage by striking it into enemies, just like in the Tekken Ball mode featured in Tekken 3.
  • In one of his victory animations, Heihachi sits on the ground and claps gleefully while Kuma II dances, reminiscent of Kuma II's Tekken Tag Tournament ending.
  • One of Heihachi's 'super' attacks, "Rocket Away", involves characters chained to a rocket which blasts off, whilst Heihachi observes via binoculars and laughs. This is a reference to Heihachi's Tekken 5 ending, where he does the same to Kazuya Mishima, Jinpachi Mishima, and Jin Kazama.
