PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale will be released in the UK and Ireland on 26 October 2012. Gamers pre-ordering their copies through selected retailers will receive an exclusive set of alternate costumes for their characters, which can be seen in the above image.

Additionally, during the Evolution fighting game tournament held in Las Vegas over the weekend, SuperBot Entertainment revealed that Tekken’s Heihachi Mishima and Sony Computer Entertainment Japan’s mascot, Toro Inoue, will both be playable characters in the game.

A new stage was also revealed in the form of ‘Dojo’ – an unlikely mash-up level that blends Master Onion’s training arena from the classic Playstation rhythm game PaRappa the Rapper with the sci-fi stylings of the Killzone series.

According to the US PlayStation Blog, two more combatants will be revealed at San Diego Comic-Con International next week, further adding to the game’s burgeoning roster.
