|PlayStation All-Stars: Round 2|
Bandai Namco Entertainment
|Publisher(s)||Sony Interactive Entertainment|
|First Release||TBA Post-2016|
PlayStation All-Stars: Round 2 is a sequel to PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale idea created by LeeHatake93. It would be developed exclusively for the PlayStation 4.
After the defeat of Polygon Man, the All-Stars seemingly return to their everyday lives. However, their peace is short-lived after Twisted Metal's Calypso reveals his interest in the other worlds. Using a newfound power, Calypso decides to bring his Twisted Metal tournament to the next level, inviting not only the psychotic clown, Sweet Tooth, to the ring, but also the various fighters from other worlds, announcing the first ever Twisted Metal Multiverse Tournament. Instead of the traditional game of vehicular manslaughter, this time, Twisted Metal is a battle royale fighting tournament taking place in multiple worlds to find out exactly which participants deserve the title of "All-Stars". The winner, as usual, will have their wish granted, no matter what it may be. However, what could Calypso's true agenda be?
- Story Mode: The game's story mode. It is told in a narrative manner similar to Mortal Kombat X, through a timeline screen like Persona 4 Arena Ultimax.
- All-Star Mode: A mode where you fight every playable character in succession, ending with a one-on-one match against your chosen fighter.
- Arcade: Play through each character's story, fight their rival, and face a reborn Polygon Man.

- Customize: A mode where players can edit characters' movesets, intros, outros, and victory music, and choose their icons, backgrounds, and online titles. This mode also allows players to create their own PlayStation Avatar, and customize their movesets. Up to 50 can be created and shared online.

The gameplay has seen an overhaul, more closely resembling the gameplay from the Super Smash Bros. series instead of the original Battle Royale. As such, characters now have normal combos, three "Impact Strikes", which are charged attacks like the Smash Attacks in Nintendo's series, four direction throws, and four special moves. Characters now have two finishing moves rather than only one. A Critical Strike, which is a move that inflicts a lot of damage, but is not guaranteed an instant KO, and a Final Strike, which is an instant KO move just like the Level 3 Super Move from PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. Final Strikes can only be performed after characters collect an AP Orb, which is similar to the Smash Ball item from the Super Smash Bros. series. Critical Strikes can be performed via filling an energy gauge, similar to the Super Meter from Battle Royale.
The game also supports the traditional features of the PlayStation 4 system, such as SharePlay, livestreaming, and Photo Mode.
There are 71 characters in this roster, with 60 of them being first-party characters.
Yu Narukami is also playable as Joker from Persona 5, and both the male and female protagonists of Persona 3/Portable, with subtle moveset changes, technically bringing the roster up to 74 characters.
