Well this is a pleasant surprised. Already preordered it, but good to see the FREE part.
Peppino7  +   685d ago
This is good news for all the doubters about whether or not Sony would add more characters. Its refreshing to hear.
Outside_ofthe_Box  +   685d ago
Wow, SuperBot giving out free DLC for a fighting game?

I hope this continues for all DLC for Battle Royale where the DLC is free for the first 2 weeks after they are available to download like this one.
Godchild1020  +   685d ago
Are those two rivals? Someone asked on the Playstation Blog. I think that is a very good question. Those two are total opposite and from 2 different platforms. Then again they are the last two to join the ranks of Sony's mascots.
360ICE  +   685d ago
They almost definitely are since they're being released at the same time, and since all the other characters already have rivals. I like Emmet Graves, but my vote goes to Kat!
NukaCola  +   685d ago
I wonder if characters come with more.

I think a DLC pack should be the character, their alternative costumes, a level based on their universe, and 1-2 items from their games.

This would please me.

Would love:
Abe from Oddworld
Alternative (Bighead)
SuperS
1. Turn into scrab or paramite and attack forward. 2. Sends out
3. Turn into Skrukyll and wreak havoc
Item: SoulStorm juice that gets you bouncing.

Absolutely. SuperBot is showing devs how to treat gamers. The beta is/was awesome for this game. And I can't wait to have it in my hands!
IAmLee  +   684d ago
AND IT'S FREE...
Now, where's crash bandicoot and spyro...
Ddouble  +   685d ago
Free Character DLC's for the first two weeks. Other fighters should take note. Superbot is doing it right.

I thought Kat will come but not so soon. Emmett will also be very interesting as well. I'm guessing his level 3 will be him in a Starhawk
SoundGamer  +   685d ago
Yeah, while they do have paid DLC, Sony first-party games have been pretty good with providing good quality free DLC too.

Can't wait to see them in action.
ceballos77mx  +   685d ago
Free first 2 weeks after release early next year.
boybato  +   685d ago
glad they've taken ques from gaming master Katsuhiro Harada, of tekken fame bringing free characters to the mix for FREE!!!!

Been saying for months that Kat is perfect for this game, and now it's finally happening. And it's free! Best birthday ever.
cgoodno  +   685d ago

Well, just in case... Happy Birthday!*

josh50187  +   685d ago
still no solid snake still no buy
cgoodno  +   685d ago
Your loss. I mean, if the only thing keeping you from buying the game is a missing character, that must mean otherwise you would buy and enjoy the game for what it is.

Or, did you intend to say "Perhaps if Solid Snake was coming out as a character I would consider buying it because I'm that huge of a fan of just that one character but will forgive what I consider to be a game I otherwise wouldn't touch with a 20-foot pole (yes, 10-foot poles are too short now)."?

dgonza40  +   685d ago
Jesus. Did you not grow up with any of the other characters?

writing off the game based on ONE missing snake is ridiculous.
josh50187  +   685d ago
When I think of playstation I think mgs and solid snake it is an out right slap to the face to put raiden in over solid snake or for that matter not include crash or cloud or spyro but and new no names to the mix Kat? Really she's deff an Allstar with her one game and tht other guy from star hawk (notice how I didn't mention his name cuz no one cares about him enough to care what his name is) if your gonna name you goddamn game PLAYSTATION ALL STARS give us the goddamn all stars then not some 3rd party bull shit disagree all you want you know it's the truth
magicwood  +   685d ago
I think he's misinformed as to how SuperBot acquires these characters for the game.
StrongMan  +   685d ago
Now THIS is how DLC should be. FREE!!! Thank you Sony!
RmanX1000  +   685d ago
Kat's rival shouldve been Toro :3 ...

They might be each others' rival for simplicity :/ Would be cool though.

Hehachi and Toro are rivals.

i dont have enough time to play videogames..casual gamer seems to be hard specially if you are balancing work and play..
aDDicteD  +   685d ago
better take note to act fast on downloading those two, it's free for only two weeks.. hopefully the other dlc are free as well and (crossing finger) for crash, sora and cloud to be included.
Hanso  +   685d ago
you think we need the game to download them?
im not sure if i have it at release day..
banjadude  +   685d ago
I don't think so, I've downloaded free DLC before I actually got the game itself. I always do that, so it appears on my download history for later use.
aDDicteD  +   685d ago
maybe not.. it's just a download on psn
cgoodno  +   685d ago
You shouldn't need the game to download. I've done this before with free DLC. Downloaded and even installed it before I owned the game.
shempo  +   684d ago
superbot said if crash will ever appear he will be free
supremacy  +   685d ago
I guess i can now scratch those two of my infamous list. Now all there is left are...

Dart felt
Minamoto yoshitsune
Ico
Jennifer tate
Lil and laarg
Blasto
Leonard (from white knight chronicle)
Gabe logan
Rudy roughnight
Toan- dark cloud
Iota
Tomba

And we are golden for sure.

supremacy  +   684d ago
Thank you. Now i get why some wont agree with my list i mean everyone is entitled to express their opinion and all, but i made this list because not only are these first party characters which ofcourse represent Sony in so many ways, but are also easier and likely to make the cut.

Sony doesnt have to pay a dime to anyone but themselves to market their own franchises in this game. Its like with the whole crash and spyro fiasco, if Sony still had full ownership of those franchises, i believe they would have been in this game a while ago.

I know that Sony isnt willing to touch Blasto mainly due to its voice actor passing away some time ago, but at the end of the day it wouldnt hurt to put him in the game which can serve as both a tribute and a public service. Who can play Blasto? Ive thought of this and after playing through many of Sony's franchises ive come to the conclusion that Captain qwark's(from ratchet and clank) voice actor could fill that role nicely.

As for tomba, Sony could essentially rebuy all of its rights if it wanted to or simply pay a small amount of royalties to its new owners. I say that because this isnt Activision they would have to deal with, but someone more open to the idea.

And the reason for characters like Iota and lil and laarg being on my list is simple, these are new mascots and Vitas own stand outs next to Kat. If Sony is to use this game as a marketing tool, then it would make a lot more sense to me for them to promote their own ips instead, who knows what could come of this.
bryam1982  +   685d ago
Ff characters dlc please! Cloud or squall and this game will b perfect
Jinkies  +   685d ago
Yeah it better be free, especialy characters like Kat and Emmett who should already be in the game

Actually hang on a tick, how is Kat not finished....early next year? I don't understand we knew she was coming, hell there was all that leaked screenshots of her. How does it take so long to create one character, I mean there saying because it's went Gold there moving onto making new characters but if we saw her BEFORE the game went gold then why didn't they just put her in the game.

I think they're holding these guys off, making them free to gain some respect after the disapointing third party character line up and then after 2 weeks when the free deal expires they'll earn some cash....very smart Superbot, very smart.

***Yeah it better be free, especialy characters like Kat and Emmett who should already be in the game ***

Don't act entitled. Accept the good news and be happy about it.
Jinkies  +   685d ago
It's not called being entitled, it's about first party characters who Sony could of easily gotten for the game with owning them being in this massive fighting game which is about FIRST party characters beating the crap out of one another.

It's common logic for these to have been in from the start. If it was someone like Lara Croft and Issac Clarke for example then fair enough since they're third party characters.

Being "entitled" is expecting (FOR EXAMPLE) DLC for Halo 4s Wargames to be free since they were for Limited Edition owners or wanting much more from the ME3 ending even though they've already fixed it and your just beating a dead horse by wanting more from it.

dgonza40  +   685d ago
Seriously.
admiralvic  +   685d ago
You're assuming way too much. For starters, these characters were probably planned early on (supported by Superbot saying it would be a 20+ character cast), but weren't completed in time. Finishing them in time might have caused a delay or Sony finalized everything early to get things into motion (supported by the random tweet that we already had the final roster and Superbot saying TGS would have new characters announced if I recall correctly). We most likely saw early screenshots of the characters since they planned on revealing them earlier, but it ended up never happening and resulted in information getting leaked (though I only saw Kat get leaked...).

Furthermore, we don't deserve any DLC for free and thats why Cgoodno is calling you entitled. They SHOULD be free, but what should be isn't always what happens. You're also mistaken about First Party characters being "easy". Superbot isn't allowed to just pick any Sony character they want and make a game with them, they need approval (much like Capcom said with cross over fighters). They could have maybe wanted SOMEONE from Resistance (I think we all agree the lack of is... odd), but they could have been told no or they couldn't see the fighter working or perhaps they wanted someone they couldn't have. Whatever the truth is, FP titles are just easier to get than third, but in no way are a simple matter of just picking people they want.

With this being said, this is an interesting move for Sony. I assume the characters are being delayed to balance out the current roster, so that implies they're going to try. I do hope we see other characters for free, though I am more interested in how much these characters are going to cost. Finally I am also sad to see these characters (or perhaps any character) will be receiving trophies, since I doubt they will be free with trophy support.
garos82  +   685d ago
Well said.someone with sense.one more thing people forget it's that the game has already been delayed once.they not gonna miss the Christmas rush because 2 characters are not fully read.this is the care me as a gamer likes to see in developers.this is why I'm getting this day one. Even if the game will not be perfect on launch I have no doubt these guys will cease supporting it.
Ddouble  +   685d ago
I don't think it's that straight forward.

The guys in Team ICO said they didn't want any of there characters in the game but they're first party.

Likewise with Capcom, the Monster Hunter team didn't want anything in MH to be in Marvel vs Capcom 3 but they're all Capcom.

Also Kat and Emmett are pretty new charactesr so the call to greenlight them for the game probably came a lot later than the original cast. Remember the game has been in development for 3 years and even once a character has been created they still need a lot of testing and balancing which is probably why they are coming as free dlc early next year.
Studio-YaMi  +   685d ago
You're nitpicking the game all day today,what's the problem here !? 2 new characters for FREE ! I don't even understand how that can be a horrible thing to whine about ..!

You might not like the characters,others actually do ! and there are more characters to come,saying things like "Yeah it better be free" and "making them free to gain some respect after the disapointing third party character line up and then after 2 weeks when the free deal expires they'll earn some cash" is really SHAMEFUL and DISRESPECTFUL ..!

Superbot treating their fans good,I applaud them for listening,I wish for more and hopefully they will deliver the goods :D !
ForgottenProphecy  +   685d ago
Nobody said this game is about first party characters. It's celebrating Playstation, not Sony. Just because a picture or two of Kat have been leaked does not mean she's anywhere near finished. How do you know they worked on her at all?

PS: Off topic, but the Mass Effect 3 ending still sucks. It's not feeling entitled to expect closure from arguably one of the greatest trilogies of all time.
smashcrashbash  +   685d ago
You know it is really lame that after they are giving us two more characters for DLC for free that people can STILL find problems with it.I mean how can you be such a killjoy? Just because the third party was disappointing to you don't put us all in the same group as you. How do you know that they would have been in the game before it went gold. They don't belong directly to them. Unlike Nintendo they have to negotiate and talk to every developer that own the character to get them and not everyone is going to follow Superbot's schedule. They can't just go and demand Kat and Emmet and they just hand them over. They have to negotiate and talk about how the character will be portrayed and what they want them to do with them.This is not like Capcom and Nintendo who own every character they use. They belong to other people who may not be as eager as you are to give them to us.And it makes it worse that they have no obligation to give any of them to Superbot.

Preordered :-) giving my download copy to my pro for his gfs vita
NBT91  +   685d ago
You can do that? I thought it would be linked to the PSN account or something...
fucadastates  +   685d ago
well... the word on the INtERNEt is, that the vita version is looked to your ps3 PSNID... so if shes not using your psnid on her vita... then it wont work
admiralvic  +   685d ago
I don't see the question / concern. We still don't know 100% how it works, so it could EASILY just be "first account to sign on", so you pop on your GF's account and then load the game first. Might be based off the online pass, though if it's a gift... 10 dollars isn't a bad price (assuming the pass might be required to activate). No matter how you go about it, it should work unless the PS3 version only works on 1 account (which makes virtually no sense).

ritsuka666  +   685d ago
No interest whatsoever in this game..

I was tempted by it once, but after playing the beta, its now nowhere near my ‘to buy’ list.

In fact, it’s made it to my ‘avoid’ list, as it was just a confusing mess to me.

Edit: DLC is free only for 2 weeks.lol hilarious..

Free is free even if it is for a limited amount of time.

The Beta on the PS3 kind of made me not want the game, but the Vita version is better because the screen is smaller and my character is easier to locate. I can't wait for Next week.

Plus confirmation that they plan to do more DLC in the future

"We’ll have more information about these characters and more DLC news coming soon, so stay tuned here for more announcements, and thanks again to everyone that has supported us as we prepare to cross the finish line."

They even state in the comments they want to do stage DLCs

On the topic of DLC, I hope that you fine folks at SuperBot don’t stop with just additional characters!
I’d love to see some more fantastic stages, as well as costumes, and maybe even game modes.

But maybe I’m getting a bit ahead of myself :P As there is already so much content in the retail release alone!

Honestly, that all sounds good, and for the record, we absolutely want to do stage DLC. Hopefully I’ll be back here with more good news on that front soon :)"

Good to see that PSASBR will get support after launch, even following these two new free characters.
CryofSilence  +   685d ago
If there is any game in the PlayStation library that deserves extended support, it's this one. This game is an homage to their entire adventure in the gaming business; they should treat it as such (which they seem to be doing).
