The final list of characters that Paul Gale Network has in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, has been sent to SuperBot. Here’s the e-mail.

October 1, 2012

The SuperBot Entertainment robot as portrayed by Paul Gale Network
SuperBot Entertainment, you’ve been great. I pose here to salute your logo!

First of all, due to a discussion that I had with my friend over the weekend, I had to refrain from sending SuperBot any e-mail until today. That being said, here’s what I sent them.

Start

**** *********** Division:
Character(s)

*** *********** Division:
Character(s)

*** *********** Division:
Character(s)

That rounded out the complete list that I was given, tallying XX characters for the game in total. It was not mentioned to me whom from that list would be available on the disc, as is, whom might be unlockable if you went that route, or whom would me made available exclusively as DLC. Furthermore, it was being speculated that your team was in a negotiation state with *******, in determining whether to use ******, ****, or ******. ****** was said to be the most likely ********** ***** candidate, as it would correlate with *** *** ****** release. Finally, ***** inclusion was unknown, but being considered after SuperBot began to read fans’ own wishlists across the internet…but unknown as to whether or not *** made it in. That’s what I was given. With those last two, IF they made it, and IF all information that was provided to me was as correct as the first batch of 20 that I received periodically, the complete roster of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale would equal ** when all DLC was complete.

I really don’t want to put this story up if it’s going to spoil anything for you. I know you all worked hard and believe me, for one single person to come from one relatively small site in comparison to what’s out there and to be the “voice” behind this game for a year now, it’s been a great experience affecting millions world wide, all the while building up hype for your game, creating early talk, pre-orders, a hopeful increase in sales, and a linkage and story unlike any other in this industry before. It’s been an honor, being chosen and given the information by my friend, to promote the game and even know about it for as long as I have.

Unless you tell me not to put up the aforementioned list, I will put up the information by October 10th. You don’t have to confirm or deny anyone to me. I will abide by your rules if you respond, even with a quote that I would turn into an article, saying that SuperBot told me, “**Here goes what you’d address my audience with**.” Nothing will get out (whether the information I have remaining is accurate or not) and your fans will respect that move by both you and see that I have to remain silent, simultaneously understanding my decision to comply.

Thank you for your time as usual.
Best regards,
Paul Gale
Paul Gale Network

Finish

I sent that exact e-mail a little while ago, of course…without the *’s throughout it. What happens next is completely up to SuperBot. All that I’ve ever shared from the beginning was information that I’ve believed to be accurate. My hints were structured a certain way all this time and with each reveal that passed, they proved to make sense. What is yet to be revealed by me, apparently may or may not be what’s left in the game, but unless SuperBot tells me not to reveal that final list (or share the alleged “final poster” which I still have not seen…assuming I do eventually get it), I will share what remaining information I have with you, by October 10th. Thank you…all of you.

Paul Gale Network was happy to SuperBot Entertainment make PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, something big
A smile from ear to ear. Yes, this is the best way to represent the final chapter in this saga. Stay tuned…for more is on its way. :)

Katisnotinthegame October 1, 2012 at 11:49 pm

So does each asterisk represent a letter? As in someone could possibly decipher each hidden word if they were good enough?

Man, I wonder what’s gonna happen after this game launches. Hopefully you’ll be back for future DLC hints or something like that. It’s been a great journey.

Paul Gale October 1, 2012 at 11:57 pm

No comment on specific speculations, yet…

Zerox October 1, 2012 at 11:54 pm

So Ezio and Connor were being considered for DLC? AWESOME!

Paul Gale October 1, 2012 at 11:58 pm

No comment on specific speculations, yet.

jfen005 October 1, 2012 at 11:55 pm

Paul,

Do the words represented with * have a random number of *’s or does each * corresponds to a specific letter?

Paul Gale October 1, 2012 at 11:57 pm

No comment on specific speculations, yet..

tipdaddy78 October 2, 2012 at 12:01 am

I do love how you did this Paul. It’s almost like us trying to decode one of your earlier hints. Thanks for doing this by the way. You don’t have to say “No Comment on specific speculations, yet…” to me but what I thought was:

Furthermore, it was being speculated that your team was in a negotiation state with ******* (UBISOFT), in determining whether to use ******(Rayman) , ****(Ezio) , or ******(Connor) . ******(Connor) was said to be the most likely ********** ***** (Assassin’s Creed) candidate

Well Thank you for everything you do Paul! I’ve been a dedicated reader from the beginning!

Paul Gale October 2, 2012 at 12:32 am

To you, since you said thank you, I’ll say, “you’re welcome…and thank you, too!”

PsychoJuggz October 2, 2012 at 2:45 am

Altair would make more sense than rayman don’t ya think

COREYXYEROC October 2, 2012 at 9:15 am

No, i think Rayman is more appropriate for this, he is more of an All-Star. But if an AC character was picked over Rayman it has to be Ezio. I will be disappointed if its the other assasins. especially Connor. Plus we would get that awesome Ezio music from the second game.

Katisnotinthegame October 2, 2012 at 12:05 am

I’ve got a feeling SuperBot won’t let you tell us because your deadline for them is right before New York Comic Con. If they have anything to reveal there then they probably don’t want you to say anything. :(

Paul Gale October 2, 2012 at 12:33 am

I’ll be completely respectful of their decision, if they write me back. If not, I will slowly pull back the curtain. As for whether or not who’s behind the curtain ends up being in the game…at this point, I wish I knew with 100% certainty that answer, but I don’t. However, at the very least, I can at least share what I’ve been told…for whatever it’s worth.

Joblade October 2, 2012 at 12:12 am

Thanks for everything Paul

Paul Gale October 2, 2012 at 12:34 am

You got it!

Katisnotinthegame October 2, 2012 at 12:17 am

Did you accidentally put 4 asterisks in the first one? Because the next 2 only have 3.

Tetiro October 2, 2012 at 12:18 am

There are people speculating on the email already Paul lol. Anyway, I did look into the letter and an Assassin’s Creed rep does fit that sent about the three character possibilities.

Not what I wanted to say though. Just wanted to let you know what’s happening on the forums. Anyway, I think you’re being fair to everyone Paul, well done on that! It should also silence the ranters for a while. Good work Paul!

Paul Gale October 2, 2012 at 12:34 am

Hey, my smile speaks for itself. Thank you, bud!

Tetiro October 2, 2012 at 12:41 am

No worries man, it must be difficult to have so much information but having to hold back but with the fans and haters wanting it so much.

Though I do have a question. Why the 10th? Wouldn’t a week from the letter being sent be more logical? Quite curious about the reasoning behind that.

Kaydos October 2, 2012 at 12:19 am

Hey Paul,

You probably shouldn’t post this comment but be careful of your tags. Cloud Strife, Capcom, Bridgestone tyres?

WOOO CRASH! Final Boss!

barker09 October 2, 2012 at 9:01 am

I hope you know that tags often have nothing to do with anything. They are meant to draw in a crowd.

Thanks again Paul for at least speaking to us (unlike some company we know)… It’s been awhile since we heard anything from them.

Moises89 October 2, 2012 at 12:22 am

I’m not going to ask for specific characters or anything, but can you at least tell us if Omar Kendall is going to address this whole situation at EB Games this weekend?

Paul Gale October 2, 2012 at 12:35 am

I don’t know that, but I respect the heck out of Omar and everyone there. I only intend to help and nothing more. Whatever they ask, I’ll oblige.

Lawlight October 2, 2012 at 12:29 am

Looks like Kat and Ezio/Connor. My guess is Connor since 3rd parties are using this game for advertisement.

GrayGhost October 2, 2012 at 12:30 am

>ubisoft
>altaïr
>ezio
>connor
>connor OR altair
>Assassin’s Creed

All fit with the first block in that order. Don’t know what *** *** ****** could be though.

GrayGhost October 2, 2012 at 12:43 am

Think we figured out the 2nd part on /vg/ as well.

Finally, Kat’s inclusion was unknown, but being considered after SuperBot began to read fans’ own wishlists across the internet…but unknown as to whether or not she/Kat made it in.”

GrayGhost October 2, 2012 at 12:45 am

the 3rd game’s release
the new game’s release

Fits *** *** ****** and would hint at Connor as well.

And since I don’t say it enough, thanks for everything Paul.

GMH30 October 2, 2012 at 12:31 am

if i’m right and asterisk represent letters then is it
1.ubisoft
2.rayman
3.ezio
4.connor
then word before inclusion is either
crash
cloud
spyro

wild guesses

RazgrizInferno October 2, 2012 at 12:59 am

That rounded out the complete list that I was given, tallying 26 characters for the game in total. It was not mentioned to me whom from that list would be available on the disc, as is, whom might be unlockable if you went that route, or whom would me made available exclusively as DLC. Furthermore, it was being speculated that your team was in a negotiation state with Ubisoft, in determining whether to use Altair, Ezio, or Connor. Connor was said to be the most likely Assassin’s Creed candidate, as it would correlate with the PS3 bundle release. Finally, Kat’s inclusion was unknown, but being considered after SuperBot began to read fans’ own wishlists across the internet…but unknown as to whether or not she made it in. That’s what I was given. With those last two, IF they made it, and IF all information that was provided to me was as correct as the first batch of 20 that I received periodically, the complete roster of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale would equal 28 when all DLC was complete.

There’s my take on it. The numbers are just wishful thinking.

soviet prince October 2, 2012 at 1:01 am

paul still wating on my neogaf pm responce :p I will hunt you down until u do lol.

rawr89 October 2, 2012 at 1:05 am

You’ll see this first, right?

BB, CS, W, CB

Plus more!

soviet prince October 2, 2012 at 1:09 am

also if they don’t reply did you ever consider a slow reveal up to release to help hype the game?

Darrick October 2, 2012 at 3:02 am

Just signed up to say thanks Paul and to be careful out here. You do and have done a lot for the community surrounding the game and it’d be a shame if you got in trouble because of any of this. I’ll be looking forward to any new developments and whatever they may be, at least you’ve cleared your name and the fans realize that you’ve been honest. Kudos my friend.

stargateheaven October 2, 2012 at 3:02 am

What if they don’t read your email in time? they are very busy since the game’s launch is so close..
hmm, i dunno, i feel you should stop here..
i know you’re trying to help, but i think it’s gonna back fire.
If you just wait the characters will be revealed eventually, clearing your name.
Doing this may annoy people..
I dunno thats just how i feel. ><

CSRPAYSRHO October 2, 2012 at 5:10 am

does this mean Crash isn’t in the game? Because i saw rarely any 5 letter “*” ‘s.

:( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :(

smoothflight October 2, 2012 at 6:18 am

Yep, connor as likeliest assassin’s creed rep if the deal with ubi goes through. kat included after fan feedback if time permitted on top of the others Paul knows are in such as cloud, snake, crash, scorpion.

Still trust you Paul.

Hacksponge October 2, 2012 at 6:20 am

waaaaah! i’m confused..
why all the first characters have 11 asterisks after the “name”?

**** *********** Division:
Character(s)

*** (Kat?) *********** Division:
Character(s)

*** (Ryu?) *********** Division:
Character(s)

the number of * are real?
thanks! :)

Hacksponge October 2, 2012 at 6:42 am

wait..
*** (Tag?) ***********

but.. crunc bunc-crash bandicoot? ç_ç

paranoidplayer24 October 2, 2012 at 6:38 am

Hey thanks man all of this means a ton

DanteDMC October 2, 2012 at 8:28 am

one had enough to spell out Sephiroth ;). but it has been a long saga and very exciting one, yet im still going to be following you on twitter. Thank you very much for all you have done. God bless

creeper43 October 2, 2012 at 8:57 am

could you tell us if there are any unannounced characters from the ps1 era or if there are any more 3rd party characters.

you have done a great job being so upfront and real with people thanx for everything.

i don’t mind if you have to say no comment but please reply.

Paul Gale October 2, 2012 at 9:58 am

If SuperBot does not reply, I will answer those questions by October 10th. And thanks a lot.

COREYXYEROC October 2, 2012 at 9:18 am

i want Ryu (Street Fighter), Rayman, Crash and Spyro. But who knows what gonna happen… except you.

jdude1996a October 2, 2012 at 11:26 am

Paul, will a “The Unholy War” fan like myself be satisfied with the roster/level selection/game in general?

Squabble October 2, 2012 at 12:30 pm

In your big Q&A post you mentioned an RPG character. So far in the current roster there is no RPG character. So my question is: Will a RPG character still appear?

Thanks in advance, keep up the good work Paul!

MEERKAT5638 October 2, 2012 at 7:15 pm

I know this much… Heihachi Mishima was in both Namco X Capcom and Project X Zone, the classic Dante will also be in Project X Zone… Those are the only RPG related characters I know of in the game.

Zerox October 3, 2012 at 12:41 am

Dante and Heihachi are not RPG characters -.-

MEERKAT5638 October 3, 2012 at 12:47 pm

@Zerox “- A character who has been in an RPG” Stated by the man himself. He never said “an all out RPG character who originates from an RPG game is in it”, he just said that a character who had been in an RPG was in, we already got two of them right here.

Coopergang1 October 2, 2012 at 1:48 pm

Is the smile a hint? By the way, I think I’ve figured you out. I don’t want to spoil the surprise, though.

jdude1996a October 2, 2012 at 3:36 pm

msg me what you figured out on psn…my psn is mtjjrstccw1

psyclone2 October 2, 2012 at 6:15 pm

i have never been more sure of a pic being a hint…. dont wanna spoil anything, but that smile is definitely the way to go. dont worry. be happy.

paranoidplayer24 October 2, 2012 at 10:12 pm

WHAT IS IT?? My psn is paranoidplayer24

psyclone2 October 3, 2012 at 6:59 am

one hint only: if u google image search the correct character, ull see…..
also, dont tell anyone. for pauls sake.

EVILRUSTYRUE October 2, 2012 at 2:46 pm

So altair,ezio,or connor for an assassins creed rep either one will work for me hope we get to see one most likely connor.

TyParker October 2, 2012 at 2:58 pm

Paul Glae, thank you for everything you have done. You have kept this game’s hype train going. I hope that the roster doesn’t dissappoint the fans after all the hard work you have done, thank you very much Mr.Gale :)

Nevermore October 2, 2012 at 3:09 pm

Hey Paul,

Long time lurker, but first time commenter. I’m glad that you’re sticking with all of the hints despite the incredible amount of hate that’s thrown your way (I lurk on GameFAQs too and it’s terrible; official PSAS forums aren’t too bad, no idea about NeoGAF). Even if SuperBot says no to this, you’ve tried your best to present to the fans what you can. It saddens me greatly that some people have chosen to be so childish when you’ve risked quite a bit to get this to us. Guess what I’m trying to say is: hope SuperBot says yes and never let the haters get to you. A hint’s worth more than the endless threads complaining about every little detail.

P.S. If Coopergang1′s right and the smile is indeed a hint, I think I might’ve figured it out too…

jdude1996a October 2, 2012 at 4:13 pm

TELL ME VIA PSN MSG!

jdude1996a October 2, 2012 at 3:39 pm

Also Paul, when can you add me to psn?

Majora999 October 2, 2012 at 7:10 pm

He’s adding people to PSN? He Paul, I’d love to take you on when the game comes out! My ID’s the same as my name here, Majora999.

Wafflecone October 2, 2012 at 4:41 pm

Furthermore, it was being speculated that your team was in a negotiation state with (Ubisoft), in determining whether to use (Altair), (Ezio), or (Connor). (Connor) was said to be the most likely (Assassin’s Creed) candidate, as it would correlate with (his new game’s) release. Finally, (Kat’s) inclusion was unknown, but being considered after SuperBot began to read fans’ own wishlists across the internet…but unknown as to whether or not (she) made it in.

I don’t know what the stuff at the top says, but it’s important to note that the (very obvious) Assassin’s Creed part gives away that apostrophes were assigned their own asterisk. Thus the “***** inclusion” part only makes sense if the character’s name is only 3 letters long, and Kat (imo) fits the description.

Katisnotinthegame October 2, 2012 at 4:51 pm

Wait, so if SuperBot doesn’t reply by the 10th, does that mean you won’t reveal your info until the 11th?

Paul Gale October 2, 2012 at 9:36 pm

If they respond before next week arrives, the new article I prepare will be “their words to the fans”, but if they don’t, then either 10-10-12 or 10-11-12 will be what I have that remains. I could just take away all of the *’s and reveal everything or as a lot of fans suggested, do it in segments. But on one of those two dates, I’ll be sharing something, unless I hear from SuperBot before then.

Jrange378 October 3, 2012 at 11:58 am

Please do it all at once. Game comes out next month lol.

Savin October 2, 2012 at 5:34 pm

Hi Paul, I’m really excited for Playstation Allstars Battle Royale’s release but I have some concerns about it.

1) The 20 characters that are playable, will all of them be starters or do some of them have to be unlocked?

2) Will this game have more ways to expand the gameplay like “Survival Mode”, “Tag Team Mode”, etc.?

3) Is 20 characters pretty bare bones? I mean, I like to play all of them and they all are original but I think there should be a little more.

Those are all the questions I have for now, and I want to say that thank you for going out of your way for the fans. I mean like eventhough Sid Shuman kinda caused a ruckus on you but you manage to pull through and thank you for what your doing.

soviet prince October 2, 2012 at 6:40 pm

can u at least give use some hint toward wheather crash is in or not, if he is in I think preorders will skyrocket.

Cole44 October 2, 2012 at 7:15 pm

the bit where it says wishlist Charecter with 5 astrexes ***** does that mean Crash because it Says Wishlists which Crash Bandicoot would top as a top PS1 Mascot.

MEERKAT5638 October 2, 2012 at 7:45 pm

I got this!
“Furthermore, it was being speculated that your team was in a negotiation state with Ubisoft, in determining whether to use Altair, Ezio, or Connor. Connor was said to be the most likely Assassin’s Creed candidate, as it would correlate with the new game’s release.” Am I right or am I left?

soviet prince October 2, 2012 at 10:12 pm

I am a very persistant person and I wont give up so it was said someone accurelty geussed your clue of the jet ski and there was three geusses

uncharted stage
jet moto
crash bandicoot is that right?

Ferkel11 October 3, 2012 at 8:30 am

He said,that it will make sense.I think Uncharted stage and Jet moto would not make a great sense.So its Crash,dude.There are multiple clues,why its Crash!

MEERKAT5638 October 3, 2012 at 6:41 pm

Whatever floats your boat, but Omar DID state that Crash would NEVER be a DLC character for the game, so I don’t think the tweet was true, crash has to be in the game!

Zalman October 2, 2012 at 9:48 pm

I solved the whole thing yesteday, and I’m pretty sure I’m right. Here’s what I came up with:

Furthermore, it was being speculated that your team was in a negotiation state with Ubisoft, in determining whether to use Altair, Ezio, or Connor. Connor was said to be the most likely Assassin’s Creed candidate, as it would correlate with the new game’s release. Finally, Kat’s inclusion was unknown, but being considered after SuperBot began to read fans’ own wishlists across the internet…but unknown as to whether or not Kat made it in.

Still sad about no mention of Crash/Spyro… I’m blaming Activision.

CSRPAYSRHO October 3, 2012 at 5:35 am

no activision wants crash in the game so blame sony/superbot

paranoidplayer24 October 2, 2012 at 10:14 pm

You Know his smile picture might be a hint at crash. He is wearing an orangey hoody and crash has a huge smile

Ferkel11 October 3, 2012 at 8:33 am

Hey,look at the Crash3 cover art!
Hes red and orange like Crash!
Hes smileing!
And he wears SUNGLASSES!

paranoidplayer24 October 2, 2012 at 10:16 pm

Never mind now That I see pictures of crash that is definety crashs signature smile and the orange hoodie plus hair done up some what like crashs. I’m putting my money on this being a crash hint

CSRPAYSRHO October 3, 2012 at 5:39 am

actually the hoodie is more of a redish color but the smile yes.

hope crash is in

Ferkel11 October 3, 2012 at 8:34 am

I aggree!

paranoidplayer24 October 2, 2012 at 10:19 pm

The top one could be a hint at cloud strife as well. He is doing the Usain Bolt victory pose. When you think bolt you think lightning and lightning comes from clouds. I may be way over thinking it but judging by the complexity of Paul’s other hints it doesnt seem so far fetched

Cole44 October 3, 2012 at 2:45 am

Paul the Picture of you Smileling with Black Glasses on looks a lot like Crash Bandicoot 3 Warped the motorcycle Picture where he is smileing. is the Photo a Hint or not on a new Charecter.

Hacksponge October 3, 2012 at 4:14 am

hi Paul :)
Could you tell us one thing?
in the EB Expo 2012, if you know, there will be some announcement?
please :( is very important…

Paul Gale October 3, 2012 at 8:40 am

Whatever happens at that event will be news to me as well. My source doesn’t know the details about this one and this, not do I. Sorry about that.

Hacksponge October 4, 2012 at 5:39 am

ah ok :)
very thanks for the reply!

Ferkel11 October 3, 2012 at 9:11 am
ackme-b October 3, 2012 at 2:00 pm

waooooo thanks a lot paul I hope that superbot reply you and if they dont I wont be disappointed, they are a very talented team :D

Supermariofan20 October 3, 2012 at 2:18 pm

SuperBot began to read fans’ own wishlists across the internet…but unknown as to whether or not *** made it in.

HMMM… A THREE LETTER CHARACTER WHO HAS BEEN REQUESTED ALOT. HMHMHmhmhmhmhkgmskmgklfmgklndlgnfdklgndfklgn…. I HAZ NO IDERP!!!
