Dry those tears, PlayStation All-Stars fans. Your beloved game isn't quite dead yet. It managed to makes its way to PlayStation All-Stars Island, where Sony and Coke Zero are... oh god, what are they doing to it? Look away, baby. Just look away.
Coming soon to iOS and Android, PlayStation All-Stars Island is a free-to-play collection of mini-games, styled after popular Sony games -- Little Big Planet Karting, Uncharted, inFamous and Gravity Rush. Developer Zoink Games has transformed each property into an endless mini-game "based on successful mobile game play," says the official announcement.
That means runner clones. Worse, the goal in each of these mini games is to collect Coke Zero orbs to unlock special Coke Zero "Make It Possible" moves, which allow the characters to crossover into the other mini-games. Codes on specially marked soda products can be redeemed for Coke Zero moves and the four special unlockable characters -- Jak & Daxter and Ratchet & Clank.
So no, PlayStation All-Stars is not dead. They're going to piss all over it first (all that Coke Zero should help), then kill it. PlayStation All-Stars Island will be available as a free download this summer.
