Two new character reveals coming this weekend, for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.

July 10, 2012

Last week, Paul Gale Network shared with you Heihachi and Toro as the two newest characters to join the PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale roster. Before officially revealing them, however, I did provide two hints in this article.

How did those two hints play out? The first one was of a martial artist with exaggerated hair (Heihachi Mishima) and the second, of a cat (Toro Inoue). As I previously stated, throughout this summer, SuperBot Entertainment would be revealing several new characters, periodically, and the next two happen to be coming this weekend at the San Diego Comic Con.

Would you like similar hints beforehand of who they might be?

Would they happen to be lombax with a robot companion and a guy with long ears with a orange furry sidekick.

If I am wrong, please do give us dem hints!

ratchet3yo July 10, 2012 at 2:17 pm

we all know jak is one of the two. but who is the second one? so can you give a hint on the other one?

Tetiro July 10, 2012 at 3:10 pm

Defo would appreciate some hints. Mind spilling the beans on some clues?

And for the majority, GameFAQs is predicting Cole MacGrath and Snake.

Tetiro July 10, 2012 at 3:14 pm

Also, might I suggest posting a day earlier than the official character release? I noticed you posted it on the day of character release for Heihachi and Toro. It may have been too late for people to read the article and start guessing.

Bernkastelwitch July 10, 2012 at 3:38 pm

I wouldn’t mind new hints but the previous two seemed a bit too obvious.

Maybe you could try a riddle or an extremely obscure thing or fact that hints to the characters perhaps?

Majora999 July 10, 2012 at 3:43 pm

Yes! Speculation is just about the funnest part of waiting for a game and it’d be fun to try and decipher until Sunday. My best guesses for reveals would be Cole MacGrath and Solid Snake. Still waiting on Sir Dan and Spyro, if they’re in, I would need noone else at this point.

PsychoJuggz July 11, 2012 at 1:46 pm

Sir Dan ftw, Hes the Link of play station. he just didn’t go as far. he needs to come back.

Stefan Johnson July 10, 2012 at 3:48 pm

Yes Hints Please. Can’t wait to see who they are. I hope one of them is Jak.

taoxadasa July 10, 2012 at 3:51 pm

Yeah, give us hints please!

Cloud July 10, 2012 at 3:52 pm
DiogoLouro July 10, 2012 at 3:52 pm

Yes! Please give us some hints!

bgoozle July 10, 2012 at 3:59 pm

Please give us some hints! It’ll be nice to have something to speculate over until the weekend.

DuranLucian July 10, 2012 at 3:59 pm

Sure! Of course, I was able to figure out Toro pretty easily with the cat. πŸ˜› Though the fighter image ….that could have been anyone.

Paul Gale July 10, 2012 at 4:16 pm

You did well on guessing Toro. As for the fighter image, perhaps it could be used for more than just Heihachi… πŸ˜‰

Majora999 July 10, 2012 at 4:32 pm

I repeat. Ryu confirmed. Calling it again.

DuranLucian July 10, 2012 at 5:57 pm

No kidding. πŸ˜› BTW, it be pretty fun when Jak and Dexter is announced you just went F’it and put up a picture of Jak and Dexter! lol πŸ˜›

Paul Gale July 10, 2012 at 9:55 pm

Jak and Daxter are in it…I revealed that some time ago, just have been unable to shed some light since.

fawfulmark2 July 10, 2012 at 4:02 pm
Sora.kun July 10, 2012 at 4:04 pm

Yeah, it’ll be too great Paul,
We want Hints for the two new characters ^_^

Harky July 10, 2012 at 4:07 pm

Of course

Bart July 10, 2012 at 4:31 pm

Yeah I’d to get some hints. And Paul since you a huge fan of Ryu, were you disappointed when Heihachi was revealed as the “fighting” game 3rd party character?

Paul Gale July 10, 2012 at 4:43 pm

I knew of Heihachi and like I mentioned before…my fighter image hint might be intended for more than just him. πŸ˜‰

jfen005 July 11, 2012 at 8:11 am

Could the image be referring to Goku as a playable character as well?

Paul Gale July 12, 2012 at 11:04 am

Kaaaameeeehaaaaameeeeehaaaaaa!

KevinTheJames July 10, 2012 at 4:33 pm

Let me riddle you this: can we expect any of these knew characters to have been PSP or Vita debuters? IE: characters that got their start on the PSP or Vita?

Paul Gale July 10, 2012 at 4:47 pm

I know of a handful of fighters remaining and will tell you that of those I know, some have been on both PSP and PS Vita. As far as debuters on either, no comment yet.

KevinTheJames July 10, 2012 at 4:54 pm

You’re making it hard to wait for this Saturday. Now I’ve got the Battle Royale announcements, potentially some Man of Steel news, and my final house party before I move out of Boston.

These are all good “problems.”

Majora999 July 10, 2012 at 6:36 pm

Why do I immediately think Ape Escape when I hear PSP and Vita…? PLEASE let it be Spike or Specter! I see people suggest a random Pipo Ape too many times, would a waste of the IP rep IMHO.

Spola1994 July 11, 2012 at 4:03 am

Little Big Planet, Rayman, Katamari and Metal Gear are the ones I can think of…

Sora.kun July 10, 2012 at 4:49 pm

We count on you Paul,
I hope you will give us hints, very difficult to understand, least two days before the revelation =)

Sora.kun July 10, 2012 at 5:05 pm

And Paul, I have a question or two, I hope you can answer ^ ^
– One of the next fighters is it a duet?
-Can you tell us what type of weapon has one of the characters (Firearms, infighting, empty-hand fighting …)?
-Is one of the characters has appeared on PS1?

Paul thank you for your interest

Paul Gale July 10, 2012 at 5:13 pm

Maybe I’ll just give you upwards of 6 hints instead of 2…one for each character I know left in the game. That’s all for now.

jfen005 July 11, 2012 at 8:10 am

Please give us all 6 hints instead of 2!!

I suggest to make the 6 hints in such an obscure manner that it’ll make us speculating for long πŸ˜€

Paul Gale July 12, 2012 at 11:04 am

Haha, sounds good.

Sora.kun July 11, 2012 at 12:41 pm

Thank you Paul, you are great, I can’t wait for these hints ^^
When can you tell us?

Paul Gale July 12, 2012 at 11:03 am

I hope by the of tonight or tomorrow.

fawfulmark2 July 10, 2012 at 5:00 pm

ok, funny youtube vid aside, do you have a planned day of when you would like to give a hint?

also just for the heck of it, do any of the characters you know of have a grappler-like playstyle?

Paul Gale July 10, 2012 at 5:12 pm

I just e-mailed Omar and the SuperBot team, to give them a heads up and see if they have a day or time that’s good with them. Hopefully I’ll know soon.

Sora.kun July 11, 2012 at 12:33 pm

Have you received reply ? =)

Paul Gale July 12, 2012 at 11:03 am

Yes…from my source, not Omar…

Nillcox July 11, 2012 at 4:59 pm

Any word back yet?

Paul Gale July 12, 2012 at 10:50 am

Just from my source, but not from Omar. I have permission to give a hint from the former…not the latter. I’d like to launch the hint by tonight.

Paul Gale July 12, 2012 at 11:03 am

Just from my source, not Omar…

chzrm3 July 12, 2012 at 2:03 pm

As long as Omar’s okay with it, that’s cool. He seems like a really great guy though, so I’d hate to find out that we were all having fun over here and then he’s upset with us. =(

Paul Gale July 13, 2012 at 12:18 am

Omar would like me to keep things closer to my chest than I have, which is why I let them have their Big Daddy moment at E3 and why for Heihachi and Toro, I waited till the day of to put up even a tiny hint.

ackme-b July 10, 2012 at 5:23 pm

I would like a hint but I think that is better wait and see than start guessing, its just my opinion or maybe if is really difficult hint it would be accepted (:

SmurfyD July 10, 2012 at 5:56 pm

I want Aya Brea but alas I doubt there’ll be a hint about her.

Sora.kun July 11, 2012 at 12:37 pm

I too would like Aya and Juliet (Lollipop chainsaw) ^^
2 blonde girls =D

Donkey Kong July 10, 2012 at 7:45 pm

Do you know all the characters in the game?

Paul Gale July 10, 2012 at 9:54 pm

Most, but not all. At least not yet.

abe_j15 July 10, 2012 at 10:02 pm

Hey Paul! Thanks again for this entire thing! Its really great that you would do this.

I, as many other people, are a little worried about the PS1 being represented. So my question is, im not asking for specifics are anything, BUT can you at least say if there are any PS1 characters on the roster? That you know of of course. Thanks again! You rock!

Paul Gale July 10, 2012 at 10:03 pm

PS era will have a presence.

DiogoLouro July 10, 2012 at 10:25 pm

Hey there Paul! Could you tell us if there’s any other character from a fighting game that you know of? Come on, it’s not that much of a deal, please tell us! =D

DiogoLouro July 10, 2012 at 10:28 pm

And Cole or a character that’s in a fighting game but it’s not from a fighting game doesn’t count! hahaha

DevinRobertson July 10, 2012 at 10:54 pm

Oops, I messed up on that last comment. That email is deleted lol. Wrong one. Can you make my last comment say:

“Paul, you said, β€œI knew of Heihachi and like I mentioned before…my fighter image hint might be intended for more than just him.”

It’s Goku isn’t it? That’d be so cool!

Can you email me the answer?

devinsmith01748@yahoo.com

? Thanks!

Paul Gale July 11, 2012 at 5:58 pm

You’ll see eventually!

Will July 11, 2012 at 12:22 am

It would be awesome Paul to see some hints I can assume who they are, but it’d be nice to know if I’m the right track. Oh and thank you very much for posting these little articles about the up and coming games. Quick question which character would like to see in game? Be them first or third party it’d be nice to see your opinion on the roster.

Paul Gale July 12, 2012 at 11:19 am

I’m glad you like the feature and you’re welcome. Thank you for being supportive. My #1 choice of any character, period, would be Ryu from Street Fighter.

Will July 12, 2012 at 11:10 pm

Oh he would make a good edition to the game, he’d be and all around character with a good mix of long and close range attacks. If Heihachi can make there is a pretty decent chance the Ryu could make it has well.

soviet prince July 11, 2012 at 2:40 am

I am a fan of spyro and crash should I be worried about them not making a appearance in this game?

Paul Gale July 12, 2012 at 11:21 am

You’ll have to wait and see. I know about 6 more characters planned. Past that, not sure myself just who’s left.

Kratoz1209 July 11, 2012 at 3:28 am

First of all, never heard of this site until recently but man i am glad i found out about this!! πŸ˜€

Well Paul i have one Question, Will a certain Gravity girl
from the vita make an appearance (fingers crossed) maybe a clue perhaps

Paul Gale July 12, 2012 at 11:24 am

I’m glad you found your way here and soon enough you’ll know more!

Spola1994 July 11, 2012 at 3:56 am

Yeah! Can you also give us hints about stages? Anyway I expect Cole to be revealed at Comic Con… And maybe another Third Party connected with comics… Or maybe two really famous one…

Paul Gale July 12, 2012 at 11:26 am

The last several stages I know of are cool with 2 being particularly interesting mash-ups in my opinion.

Spola1994 July 12, 2012 at 11:40 am

Great! I can’t wait to see them! πŸ˜€

jdude1996a July 11, 2012 at 6:31 am

YES

Paul, after watching the EVO panel, I’ve come up with a few questions for Playstation All Stars Battle Royale

1) You know how you can change the characters colours, well can you also change the colours of the alternate costumes and pre-order costumes?

2) Is Arcade Mode and Story Mode the same thing?

3) In Arcade Mode, Omar and Superbot showed off one of the rivalry cutscenes, well I want to know how many cutscenes are there per character?

4) Will the rivalries in arcade mode be one sided, as in Heihachi’s rival is Toro, but Toro’s rival is someone else?

jdude1996a July 11, 2012 at 9:54 am

5) For the taunt button, is it just 1 taunt the character does when the button is pressed or is it a different taunt each time?

6) In SSBB, you were able to add comments to your taunts so whenever the taunt button is pressed, you see the comment, will you be able to do the same in Playstation All Stars Battle Royale?

jdude1996a July 12, 2012 at 10:08 am

7) are custom soundtracks confirmed for this game?

Paul Gale July 13, 2012 at 1:05 am

I’m not sure about that one.

jdude1996a July 12, 2012 at 11:18 am

7) Is their custom soundtracks for this game?

Paul Gale July 12, 2012 at 11:29 am

I have to ask my friend…don’t know this one.

Paul Gale July 12, 2012 at 11:31 am

More info shortly and comments are being considered.

Paul Gale July 12, 2012 at 11:31 am

You’ll see quite soon!

jdude1996a July 12, 2012 at 11:34 am

OK, thx Paul

Paul Gale July 13, 2012 at 12:25 am

You got it.

ZHZ90 July 11, 2012 at 6:47 am

I hope they are
If Sony’s then it should be Jak or Cole
If 3rd Party character like Big Daddy the it should be Ezio, Sora, Sepharoth or Snake

jfen005 July 11, 2012 at 8:12 am

Yes for hints!! πŸ™‚

Bernkastelwitch July 11, 2012 at 8:19 am

If possible can you answer this question…

Do any of the unconfirmed characters have an unorthodox/strange moveset at all?

And are there any non humanoid characters at all in the roster?

If possible can you answer at least one of them?

Paul Gale July 13, 2012 at 1:05 am

There are some “out there” move sets, yes.

Dark_Relic July 11, 2012 at 10:30 am

Hi Paul! I have some questions for you, i hope you can answer πŸ™‚
1-More japanese characters?
2-Are in the roster a “warrior”?
3-Are in the roster more “animals”?

Paul Gale July 12, 2012 at 11:04 am

Safe to say that one of those three, is a yes.

Maragoras July 11, 2012 at 10:35 am

Sir Daniel Fortesque?

Maragoras July 11, 2012 at 10:38 am

Sorry, no edit button.

I mean; Does he have a chance?(I know this is kind of off topic since he isn’t on PS3 or Vita, but he’d be an awesome character to have.)

Paul Gale July 12, 2012 at 11:23 am

Everyone has a chance technically…as long as they’ve been on a PlayStation system.

Roseofmay July 11, 2012 at 12:04 pm

After it took Square Enix 3 years to get around to the Final Fantasy 7 outfits for Little Big Planet, what are the chances that Square related characters will appear in All-Stars, on a scale of 1-10? ( 10 =highest )

Paul Gale July 12, 2012 at 11:27 am

Just as good of a chance as any other PS character…you can determine how likely for now. πŸ™‚

PsychoJuggz July 11, 2012 at 12:43 pm
Sora.kun July 11, 2012 at 12:46 pm

I think knowing the identity of the new fighters through your Hints ^ ^
The image of the cat represents another fighter, after Toro?

Sora.kun July 11, 2012 at 12:52 pm

And also, do you have any hints for a new stage?

PS: Sorry for all my posts, I’ve put a lot

Paul Gale July 12, 2012 at 11:26 am

2 of the stages I know of are great mash-ups, though I haven’t seen them in video form yet.

harley2947 July 11, 2012 at 4:26 pm

Hey Paul,
I love how you do these hints, and have already told us of characters that are in but not revealed yet. What do you think about marsupials and dragons? πŸ˜‰

Paul Gale July 12, 2012 at 11:02 am

I’m personally a fan of both.

8bithero July 11, 2012 at 5:41 pm

paul, please just ease the pain for me before this game is released. Is there a “penguin” *COUGH* http://images.wikia.com/disgaea/en/images/2/25/Prny03.jpg *COUGH* from a certain Strategy JRPG in this game? im assuming the answer is no πŸ™

Paul Gale July 12, 2012 at 10:51 am

Think of the likelihood and then just wait…sorry man, no confirmations.

8bithero July 12, 2012 at 12:34 pm

well im assuming its a no since everytime i bring him up on forum discussions no one has any idea who im talking about ._.

another question(if you can answer it of course)
will there be a story mode?(like mortal kombat or brawl) or is it only arcade mode?

Paul Gale July 13, 2012 at 12:24 am

People really want this one answered. Hmm, the game dose have cinema scenes that evolve the story. That’s all for now.

MoonMan757 July 11, 2012 at 8:51 pm

I’m guessing one of the characters will be Cole from Infamous. He has that comic type of feeling to him.

Paul, Can you please give us an estimate of how many characters will be in this game?

Paul Gale July 12, 2012 at 11:28 am

“Around” 20 is the best I can do. Keep in mind I don’t have the final roster just yet nor do I know what the final number will be.

MoonMan757 July 12, 2012 at 11:52 am
Paul Gale July 13, 2012 at 12:25 am

You’re welcome.

Aidan July 12, 2012 at 12:08 am

hey paul, i got a couple of questions.

1. How/why do you get inside knowledge from the superbot entertainment team?

2.when are you releasing the next couple of clues for sundays comic-con panel? its getting pretty close already.

Paul Gale July 12, 2012 at 11:30 am

My friend is involved with the game’s development in some capacity and I plan to have the hints by the end of today or tomorrow.

Aidan July 12, 2012 at 5:42 pm

how does the superbot team feel about you giving hints on their next character reveals and game mechanic updates? i suppose they would be ok with it, otherwise you wouldnt be doing it at all.

Paul Gale July 13, 2012 at 12:13 am

My particular friend gradually updates me along the process of the game’s development and occasionally tells me when it’s ok to put something up. Omar’s official stance, however, is to hold back. The gaming community obviously wants it all. What I try to do is respect all three.

Tetiro July 12, 2012 at 1:16 am

Hey Paul, I got a question if you can answer it.

When will be seeing another “Ask Paul” moment? I really enjoyed the previous one and some of the answers you provided were enlightening to the game. Regardless of characters and stages.

By the way, I noticed your b’day post. Happy Birthday man and I hope you had an epic day.

Paul Gale July 12, 2012 at 10:48 am

I don’t know when I’ll have another one of those, but for the last month plus, I have been trying to get to people’s questions in these comments. And thank you. Friday night I went to club to go dancing, Saturday afternoon to a shooting range, followed by a sports bar to watch UFC 148, and then to a bowling ally. Sunday I went to the beach. It was a packed weekend. Epic indeed. I appreciate it.

Tetiro July 12, 2012 at 11:27 am

Sounds like a brilliant weekend. I went to Brighton this weekend. Trust me to pick a day that was very bad weather. Got soaked in 5 seconds flat lol.

Btw, you mentioned you emailed Omar about when you can post the hints. Any response from him yet? No need to tell me when, I like the surprise of having no clue when the hints will be posted up!

Paul Gale July 13, 2012 at 12:27 am

He hasn’t gotten back to me regarding my most recent e-mail, no. Not yet.

DuranLucian July 12, 2012 at 7:27 am

Are there enough females for me to make an entire vs. match with? Example: Fat Princess vs Nariko vs Kat vs Kuo? Or are we stuck with 2 πŸ™

Paul Gale July 12, 2012 at 10:46 am

There are more than two female characters in the game. πŸ™‚

DuranLucian July 12, 2012 at 2:50 pm

Great! πŸ™‚ Lady love! πŸ˜‰ Any other blondes?

Paul Gale July 13, 2012 at 12:16 am

Natural or dyed?

DuranLucian July 13, 2012 at 5:04 am

Natural, of course πŸ™‚

Teoskaven July 12, 2012 at 8:14 am

I would appreciate your hints, yes.
Also, probably a weird question: since there are third part characters, do you know if there will be stages based on third part games (like i don’t know, one based by Rapture, for instance)?
Also, through the actual roster we have characters rapresenting almost all genre (action, Hack ‘n Slash, platforming, rythm, FPS, RTS, fighting game), with only one missing, wich bring my second question:
Without giving away names or specific games origin, do you know if in the roster there’s a rep for RPG/JRPG games?

Paul Gale July 12, 2012 at 10:49 am

There is an RPG rep in the game’s roster. And actually…yes, this is the first time I have confirmed/answered this question.

Cloud July 12, 2012 at 11:07 am

Is he… my usernmame? πŸ˜€

Paul Gale July 12, 2012 at 11:29 am

Haha, wouldn’t you like to know. No confirmation yet.

Cloud July 12, 2012 at 12:59 pm

Ah well, worth a try. πŸ˜‰

MoonMan757 July 12, 2012 at 10:56 am

What does it mean, my comment is awaiting moderation? How do I get it to show up?

Paul Gale July 12, 2012 at 11:28 am

I have to click, approve.

Sora.kun July 12, 2012 at 12:36 pm

People are really in a hurry … =/
At the same time, the game looks so good … ^^

creeper43 July 12, 2012 at 11:00 am

i would like to see spyro and sackboy next. wtf ign saying they played PSASBR at comic con already. and plz hints asap, much appreciated

Bernkastelwitch July 12, 2012 at 11:10 am

Just to clarify on something…if you can answer this I’ll be happy.

Is there a non humanoid character in the roster at all? I am talking about non bipedal or non human looking characters at all.

And finally…is there any character you know of in the roster that hasn’t been confirmed that has an unorthodox or strange moveset?

Paul Gale July 13, 2012 at 1:05 am

There are some human and some non human characters remaining in the roster.

jdude1996a July 12, 2012 at 11:28 am

Paul, did my questions I posted show up?

Paul Gale July 13, 2012 at 12:25 am
DiogoLouro July 12, 2012 at 12:11 pm

Hey there Paul! Could you tell us how many stages there are in the game approximately?
Thanks!

Paul Gale July 13, 2012 at 12:25 am

I personally know of just under a dozen.

Sora.kun July 12, 2012 at 12:34 pm

Hey Paul, I wanted to ask,

http://th08.deviantart.net/fs70/PRE/f/2011/352/3/8/sony___title_fight____version_3_0_by_anthodu78-d4jfxhx.png

Solid Snake
Sweet Tooth
Fat Princess
Cole mcgrath
Parappa The Rapper

Paul Gale July 13, 2012 at 12:24 am

I could easily say yes or no…but I won’t just yet. πŸ˜‰
