Sony has revealed the roster for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale bit by bit but now it appears to be complete.

While it's obvious that more characters can be added via DLC in the future, the launch cast is complete. According to IGN citing a Tweet from PlayStation Blog senior social media specialist Sid Shuman, every fighter in the original roster has been revealed. That leaves us with the following; there will be 20 in total:

I'm sure you've got ideas for more, so feel free to let Sony know. There's probably no limit to how many characters can throw down in this entertaining free-for-all!

lol, 2 Coles. Anybody remember the palette-swap days?

It would be a big mistake if FF characters didn't arrive via DLC.

There should've been at least one at launch… didn't matter which (although I had my wish list)…

I mean how can they even make a game with the best from the best and NOT have a single FF character??? :/

I know, if it was Tifa I might have bought it.

I think its because Evil Cole has a different moveset.

I expected more characters at launch. Maybe this is due to the fact that SuperBot is in hot water regarding the leak of characters before official announcements. It is rumored that some heads have rolled over this and that some 3rd party publishers are now reluctant to participate or simply do not want to make any further announcements until after the game is released. There are just too many logical characters missing that could make this game appealing to the broadest audience possible. I guess we will just have to be patient.

Well everyone has been clamoring for Crash and Spyro which is understandable, but personally I couldn't care less about either of those characters.

FF NEEDS to be represented. How 'bout a Midgar level as well as a few of the most iconic characters from 7-10?

Kat from Gravity Rush would be badass (and I heard rumors she was in it for sure)

Yes, Snake please and lose Raiden…

The fact that Snake isn't on here is blasphemy. Snake defines the Playstation. He better be there in DLC or something. Just inexcusable to have to pay for him or not to have him in there at all.

I like the roster, but it does seem a tad anaemic in these days when most fighters launch with around forty characters. Still, most of the characters that I'd most like to see are in. I can do without Snake or Crash or Spyro. I'd still like to see a Chimera and someone from FF (Dissidia proved they can work). Would love to see Valkyria Chronicles show up, and where the devil is Kiryu? One of the biggest third party exclusives is a no-show? Ah well… Still not sure whether I'll get this one. Maybe a Vita purchase when I get it, along with a price drop.

I'm not even a real FF fan but seriously. How could they not have any? I'd buy the game just to see whatever amazing level/levels they had representing the gorgeous FF environments. Hopefully they add it in later.

Even as a big Final Fantasy fan, I can look past that to see what is more important – Crash Bandicoot! This is the icon that defined the playstation back in he day, he was as big as Sonic and Mario, even though that is hard to believe nowadays. But for a game celebrating Playstation life it is a crime not to included Crash.

I would also Welcome Cloud – The first FF released to Europe and on the PS console. Spyro – Another PS Platformer. Okami's Wolf, Lara Croft and Snake, though Raiden is suffice.

I have been loving the beta but this roster is not what i had in mind. Superbot better release some characters if not all DLC characters free. Terrible way to start off an awesome game like PASBR.

Some big one's are missing. Including Raiden is just silly marketing…

Where is Abe?

Abe could say hello, possess others minds, get them to fallow him and set them free from this weird game they are all been trapped in!

Ooooh, Abe could be an interesting character with all the creatures and spirits that he could summon… on top of mines, rocks, possesions, and the kamikaze Mudokons that he has at his disposal! 😀

Hmm, I don't know. Some of the ones included are questionable to why they're included over some others.

The first SSB game only had 12, but the ones they picked were the best of the best. Leaving out Crash and Snake would be like leaving out Mario and Samus respectively.

But I think they did that on purpose. If this game under performs, I would expect big name DLC characters. If it does well enough, I expect the sequel to be a PS4 launch title with everyone we are missing.

I hope there are at least a dozen unlockable characters that they didn't reveal, but in this age of DLC that is unlikely.

Needs Gabe Logan with a taser attack. Does anyone remember Syphon Filter?

And how about Yoshimitsu? So many fantastic moves compared to Heihachi.

Lara Croft kinda needs a spot too. Who doesn't immediately think of her when remembering the glory days of PS1?

Crash Bandicoot?
I feel like there's a few missing. I thought they were going to be revealing characters every so often all the way up to the game's release?
I already kinda assumed they'd have all the characters guys in above comments have mentioned.
