UPDATE, August 2, 2012: SuperBot Entertainment's president Chan Park took to the official PlayStation Blog earlier today to confirm that a public beta for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale will begin this fall, but he also directly addressed (and confirmed) the leaks below:
"In addition, there was an unexpected and unintended leak in our beta that allowed fans to be able to see some additional content. We’ve enjoyed reading all of the fan reaction and are thrilled that so many of you are excited to learn more about our character roster and level mash-ups, however we are still in development and the leaked content does not fully represent the final product nor the incredible efforts that were made to make these elements truly spectacular. This will be evident in the coming weeks as this content is officially revealed, beginning with our next character announcement at Gamescom in a couple of weeks."
ORIGINAL STORY: In an effort to keep up with the deluge of leaked information on PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, we've created this handy hub of details that will be constantly updated as we hear more. Below you'll find information on 20 playable characters (12 confirmed, eight leaked), 14 stages, 20 minions (one for each fighter), 17 weapons and items, and a whole host of possible game modes.
The following information comes courtesy of both the GameFAQs and NeoGAF forums, where users of each have diligently pored over files in the PlayStation All-Stars beta code. The reward they've reaped is an insane amount of information on Sony's crossover brawler, and we've organized everything we know below.
A collection of data files associated with characters was unearthed by NeoGAF users. There are two possible formats for the data files:
[date] [time] [number] css_character_icon_[name].ctxr
[date] [time] [number] ui_cs_text_[name].ctxr
As IGN points out, the latter format seems to apply to the first six characters (plus Nathan Drake) officially unveiled by SuperBot (including Sweet Tooth and Parappa the Rapper). Meanwhile, the former code is used for characters that were either revealed at a later date or have yet to be shown. Because of this, speculation exists that seven fighters will be immediately playable, while the rest must be unlocked.
Character List (leaked fighters in bold)
--Dante (from Ninja Theory's DmC)
--Nariko (from Heavenly Sword)
--Raiden (from Metal Gear Rising)
--Sir Daniel Fortesque (from MediEvil)
--Spike (from Ape Escape)
--Parappa the Rapper
In addition to these characters, NeoGAF user Tagg9 uncovered files referencing "minons", who might to be background characters or NPCs that make in-game cameos somehow. There seems to be one minion for each playable character.
Captain Qwark (Ratchet)
Fat Princess Worker (Fat Princess)
Dollface (Sweet Tooth)
Helghast Soldier (Colonel Radec)
Kiya (Sir Dan)
Little Sister (Big Daddy)
Murray (Sly Cooper)
Nix (Evil Cole)
Pierre (Toro Inoue)
PJ Berri (Parappa the Rapper)
Sully (Nathan Drake)
Zeke (Good Cole)
The initial leak from Reddit user 696ly was later supplemented by clear stage images that appear to be thumbnails from a stage select screen. A set of files provides the name for each stage, as well as a 15th "Random" option.

This game is going to be a great game. Its full of great characters.

question....why would they put the new retarded looking Dante design in and not the original Devil May Cry 1 Dante? He is the one that is famous on Playstation, not this Twilight wanna be trash version!
- 9:05pm EDT - July 29th, 2012
Assuming this is all true, I'm pretty satisfied. I'm glad nariko made it in and the loco roco level was a pleasant surprise. I'm intruiged by the weapons and the other modes "particularly customize character". My only complaints are (like 5 said) the ninja theory dante and no crash or spyro :/ and perhaps if nix is associated with evil cole, why not kuo for good cole?

I wonder why good Cole didn't Kuo as his partner...anyways the list seems solid but I really think they should've included Crash & Spyro I also would've loved if Raziel was in it but oh well

A little more excited. Feel like there are a lot more character possibilities missing from the list, though it is fromthe beta code so maybe. And agree about Dante, what the helll are they using the new Dante, he doesn't deserve to exsist let alon be on this roster
