PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale pushed back to Nov. 20

Change of plans.

The original Oct. 23 release date for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale has been put to rest. The President of SuperBot, Park Chan revealed on the PlayStation Blog that the upcoming fighter will now see a Nov. 20 release in North America.

Chan says more tuning and polishing time is needed, causing the delay. See his address to Battle Royale fans, after the jump.

"Hello PlayStation Nation. As you know, we at SuperBot have set high benchmarks for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. Our goal is to deliver a fun, well-balanced, and compelling gameplay experience that pays homage to all of these incredible characters.

We also know our fans have high expectations for this title, and to that end, we have decided to move the release date to November 20th, 2012 for North America (including Canada) and Latin America territories. This will let us spend more time polishing and tuning the game, and it will give us a chance to incorporate some of the great feedback we’re receiving from the current limited beta to ensure we are creating the best possible fighting game experience. While it is our greatest desire to put this game into the hands of our fans as soon as possible, we do not want to do so at the sake of quality. The additional time will be well worth the wait, and are excited to know that our fans will have the ultimate brawler in time for the holiday.

Keep an eye on next week’s GamesCom, as we’ve lined up some big announcements that we’re sure you’ll be excited about.

Thanks again for all of your support and understanding!"

Fernando's POV: While I was looking forward to picking this up in October, it's always better to wait for a polished game. I hope SuperBot uses the extra time to make the game's online play smooth as well as up the quality in all aspects.
