Robot Chicken Takes on PlayStation All-Stars Short Tonight, Watch the Teaser

November 26, 2012Written by Jason Dunning

I never expected to see this, but PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale will be appearing on Robot Chicken tonight as part of a spoof that Sony actually requested.

Matthew Senreich, Co-creator and Executive Producer on Robot Chicken, had this to say about the short:

When PlayStation asked us at Robot Chicken to literally “play” with their all-star line-up of characters, we were not about to say no. PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale gave us an opportunity in the writers’ room to have the geek discussions we all love to have. Who would destroy who in a fight to the death, or wherever they end up going after being defeated. To make this animated short, we got one of our Head Writers Douglas Goldstein and our super gamer writers Mike Fasolo and Rachel Bloom (check out her geek videos on YouTube) to create this fun off-hours scenario for all our favorite PlayStation characters. Then we got our super geek director/writer Zeb Wells (who y’all may know from his comic book writing history) to dive in and direct. Magic in a bottle.

What is that “before” or “after” location like where all these characters hang out? What voices could we give to these iconic characters when turned on their side 90 degrees? Part of what our Robot Chicken crew does best. Take the absurd and make it mundane.

You can check out a short preview below and the episode will air at 10PM EST/PST tonight on Adult Swim. Will you be tuning in?
