While Nintendo has no intention to make games for smartphones, Sony is testing the waters again with the launch of a series of free-to-play games for iOS and Android. In PlayStation All-Stars Island, Sony has brought together some its most recognizable characters from titles including Uncharted, LittleBigPlanet Karting, inFamous, and Gravity Rush, creating a number of mini-games that have all been tweaked to maximize its sponsorship deal with Coca-Cola.
Sony will only launch All-Stars Island in Europe
As you progress through each title, you'll be able to collect special promotional objects to to unlock special characters, featuring cameos from Jak, Ratchet and Clank. If you've ever wanted to play a Temple Run clone featuring Nathan Drake or race with Sackboy, all the while making sure to collect special Coke Zero 'Drops' and logos, All-Stars Island will ensure you come away refreshed.
With All-Stars Island, Sony risks diluting a recognizable brand. While it includes some of PlayStation's most distinctive characters, All-Stars Island is a far cry from PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale on the PS3 and PS Vita, which was Sony's version of Nintendo's Super Smash Bros series. Sony says PlayStation All-Stars Island is part of its "European marketing promotional program with Coke Zero," so you won't be able to enjoy the low-calorie goodness if you live in the US.
