20 Character Launch Roster Confirmed for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale

At the EB Expo tonight, Omar confirmed that the PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale launch roster is indeed 20 characters. After much speculation and confusion among the internet, finally it is settled. Twenty characters is a good number. (PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, PS Vita, PS3)

Im more than fine with getting 20 characters in a fighter I never played before, lots to discover with each of them

I'm fine as well.(A little disappointed, but not raging or acting spoiled) I still do have a few questions for SuperBot. One is, will DLC characters have their own stories since each character in the game does.

They do not have a horror or rpg rep on disc, nor a ps vita character or a psp character. I think at the end of the day, they basically wanted to get all the core mechanics and features in the game. Then maybe they can apply all of that to DLC characters and stages.

This rabbit hole goes deep my fellow gamers. Anyone else have any idea what the whole someone like Crash would never be DLC thing was about? Plus, why would they have Sid Shuman post about this whole this before SuperBot themselves :/ Somethings I just don't understand. Plus what about the whole Paul Gale thing. Someone call the mystery gang!

Dagonit, Edit time went up. That comment about crash from DSN was more like Crash would never be paid DLC, he would be free. Welp, there goes my two bubs :?

The Best thing I can say is, keep giving feedback and suggestions to SuperBot :D They probably have had some of their team start on DLC depending on their schedule.

20 for now is fine i guess. Better have some awesome DLC planned.
Godchild1020  +   845d ago
I'm sure with DLC we will get new characters, levels and maybe alternate costumes.

Well that is all I wanted to hear. Confirmation from Superbot themselves. It's not going to stop me from buying the game but I know it will disappoint a lot of people who were waiting for Crash, Spyro, Kat and Cloud. I personally am satisfied with the roster and number because I got basically everyone I wanted but this won't go heard without some type of backlash from Sony fans. Prepare yourself.

Oh well 20 is plentiful, hope to see Kat appear in the game as DLC :D

20 is a very very solid number, but the substance of those 20 isnt that great. Where is the Final Fantasy delegation? Crash? I really hope they make it into the game, and until then I am honestly not sure it is worth the purchase for me to only play as Jak, Good/Evil Cole, Drake, maybe Raiden.

no offense but
I hope Superbot make the characters look more alive, lifelike, put more smooth personality animations and move the cameras even closer

How many did it have on the Wii?

Super Smash Brothers Brawl has 35 selectable characters.

I know All stars only has 20 but its a pretty good roster in my opinion and hopefully fan favorites will come out in the form of DLC (Crash, Spyro etc.)

"Let’s take a look at the 35 selectable characters from A to Z."

The first one had 12, the second had 25 and the third one have 35 payable characters.

For PSABR, the character list stands right in the middle of the first 2 SSBs. I think that's a good launch line up for it's first time out the gate.

The number of characters isn't the only thing to think about, I loved melee but a lot of characters copied each others movesets. Luigi and Dr. Mario were a lot like mario, young link was like link, marth and roy had the same moves, and so did ganondorf and cpt falcon.

Hopefully all the characters here will feel unique.

Japanese Godzilla destroyed Western Godzilla in Final Wars. Pretty funny scene.
miyamoto  +   845d ago
LOL!
That's was really hilarious
I'll look it up
Bubbles up, Axel ... I mean me or myself XD

PS: I hope PSASBR hope lots of costume options or customizations too. unlockable or free DLC like Little Big Planet :-)

@ axelstone yes it does. Superbot on the Blog said that each character has at least ten costumes each plus accessories.
