PlayStation All-Stars Round 2: New Roster by LeeHatake93 PlayStation All-Stars Round 2: New Roster by LeeHatake93
A major overhaul of this image:… , this is my personal character roster for a PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale sequel, if Sony would ever make one. Unlike most of my more recent character rosters, this game would actually go back to having 2D character portraits instead of 3D models in the character selection screen. This is due to my new ideas for the design of the selection screen itself, which now incorporates returning features from the first game, with a new look. Character portraits are once again grouped into rectangular "card-like" sections, as with the first game.

The design of these "cards" are as follows:
1. Player Number: In the top-left corner of the portrait is the player's number, which indicates whether a player is 1P, 2P. COM, etc. 
2. Character Rank: In the top-right corner is the selected character's rank. As with the first game, individual characters level up when a player uses them. Leveling up unlocks customization items as well as other features, much like in the first game. However, unlike the first game, leveling up now unlocks more content, such as alternate attacks and the new "Support character" feature, which replaces the "Minions" from the first game. More details about this will be posted when I submit ideas for the gameplay.
3. Character Portrait: At the center of the portrait is, of course, the selected character, with an outline highlighting their render to indicate which player is controlling them...This brings us to the next notable visual...
4. Character-Specific Background: In the first game, every playable character had a unique background in their selection screen portrait, which also translated over to their Main Menu theme and inspired the color of their PlayStation 3 system Dynamic Theme. I initially didn't think to include this as I made all of their small portrait icons share a "PlayStation Blue" background, however, I had an interesting idea when I decided to make the selected fighters' portraits. Inspired by the various Character Biography pictures I've been making for my Crossover Game project, I decided to include an iconic background for each character that would change color depending on what player uses said character, much like the "Universe Icons" in the Super Smash Bros series. My original idea was to use a generic PlayStation background image for every character, but instead, I took an iconic image from the characters' home series, made it transparent, pasted it over the generic PlayStation image, and colored it accordingly. I was pleased with the result and decided that I would do this for every character in the image. Naturally, the color of the background would change depending on the player, so if there were two players using the same character, the background image, despite being the same, would be different colors.
5. Character Name: In the bottom left corner, above a black bar, is the character's name. A staple for any fighting game, obviously it tells you who you're playing as...
6. Ready/Confirm Indicator: Located above the character's name is an indicator that will read as "Confirm" if a player has not selected their fighter and "Ready" once a character has been selected.
7. Online ID/Username: In the black bar below the character's name is the player's username. As with the first game, this reflects on the username or Online ID used by the player controlling the character. When offline or viewed as yourself, the screen will display your real name (on PS4) if you have one set to your profile. On the other hand, if you are playing online or viewing other players, it will display their online ID. Offline, it will display the name associated with the profiles signed in with each controller.
8. Character Costume: To the right of the characters name is a shirt icon with a number on it. This indicates which of the characters' alternate costumes you are currently wearing. However, unlike in the first game, when you change your character's color scheme, it will be shown in the character's actual portrait, much like in Super Smash Bros or Marvel vs Capcom, rather than changing the color of the costume icon.

Super Smash Bros. Next:…
Microsoft Legends Battle Zone X:…

The characters chosen for this match-up are Nathan Drake from Uncharted, Kat (and Dusty) from Gravity Rush, Jak and Daxter from Jak 3, and Aloy from Horizon: Zero Dawn.
Their descriptions are posted below:

1. Nathan Drake: Nate is rendered in his design from Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, which is now his default costume. His background image is the jungle used in promotional artwork for Uncharted 4, as well as that on the cover of the game itself. His character rank is 261, my actual rank for Nathan Drake in my copy of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.
2. Kat & Dusty: Kat's artwork is taken from Gravity Rush 2, and her background image is artwork of Hekseville, the town she lives in and the image used on the PlayStation Vita boxart and application icon for the PlayStation 4 version of Gravity Rush Remastered. Her character rank is 119, my actual rank for Kat & Dusty in my copy of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.
3. Jak and Daxter: Jak and Daxter's artwork is that of the original artwork used for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, before it was changed to a different pose, and represents their appearance in Jak 3. As such, their background image is that of the Wasteland, which was used on the boxarts of Jak 3 and both the PS3 and PlayStatio Vita versions of the Jak and Daxter Collection. Their character rank is 229, my actual rank for Jak and Daxter in my copy of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.
4. Aloy: Aloy is one of the newest characters in the roster, and hails from the upcoming PS4 game, Horizon: Zero Dawn. Her render was taken from a screenshot used as promotional imagery, and her background was taken from another screenshot used to promote the game. Her character rank is 40, my current rank for Nariko in my copy of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. I chose Nariko's rank since she's the closest thing to Aloy in the first game, in terms of appearance anyway.

Without further ado, I present the full roster. Keep in mind that the third party characters are subject to change, and Spider-Man is there as both a placeholder for a first-party character and as an actual fighter. There are currently 71 characters, 60 of which are first-party or PlayStation exclusives. The characters are grouped by series, though most of them are grouped by console, starting with PlayStation One and ending with PlayStation 4, before the third-party characters.
