In this PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale article from last week, I confirmed that there were 18 known characters in the game prior to an official weekend update with my source, in which I then learned of several more. With these added final representatives, the end roster in the game exceeded 20, and that’s where I left things at.
Fast forward to last Friday’s Street Fighter 25th Anniversary event in Los Angeles, where I spoke with some of the crew from SuperBot Entertainment (in this story), and I revealed to them that even with the leak, I wouldn’t unveil any final characters that are disc based or coming from DLC.
We did talk about my hints and they appreciate my approach as of late and what I plan to do from here on out. That being said, there are some questions that I have been dodging, as to not 1) Ruin any certain surprises that are what people want and 2) Not say that certain characters did not make the cut, thus derailing some people’s hype train.
So what I’m saying here is that many out there will be plenty satisfied with the final count. My riddle to you: “PlayStation characters of old and new, borrowed and true, Pacific and Eastern, some just terrific…and others you (y)earn.”
Amongst the different pictures I’ve put up, there are several hints…some of which have already been deciphered, with those characters now being out. Other hints have been successfully picked apart by some clever gamers and reflect yet-to-be revealed roster fillers. Those that truly believe they’re right on the money with my picture hints and with what I’ve written about some future characters, might be right…whereas others will no doubt, frown. There’s more to come than you know and more to come than what you think you know. My best advice to all of you at this point, is to be optimistic about what SuperBot Entertainment’s first attempt at such a game winds up being, for it is overall…pretty awesome.
The shirt says it all.
