Last weekend's massive PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale leak was unprecedented in its scope, but even now it seems Sony just can't keep a secret. Eagle-eyed NeoGAFers were able to capture screenshots of the game's official website earlier this evening during a time when images were accidentally posted, and the content all but confirms the inclusion of two characters and suggests several more.
The two characters in question are Sackboy and Raiden, and as you can see in the images below, Sackboy was accidentally posted in the game's official character roster. Meanwhile, Raiden can be seen in an "Ultimate Matchup" with Cole MacGrath, suggesting that some kind of competitive marketing will be used for (or in) the game.
The same screengrab that features Raiden shows a line-up of several playable fighters, including ones that haven't been revealed yet. Click the image to blow it up and zoom in for a closer view. We spot:
- Nariko from Heavenly Sword (far left), behind PaRappa
- Ratchet (middle, left of Radec), and Clank (left of who appears to Nariko)
- Jin from Tekken (second to the right of Big Daddy)
- Kazuya from Tekken (left of Ratchet)
- Ryu Hyabuza (Ninja Gaiden, far right)
Strangely, we also notice that the Cole MacGrath who appears in this line-up is the character model from the original inFAMOUS. Could this mean that we'll receive a skin for Cole in the final game, or will there be separate playable Coles representing the first and second games in the franchise?
Whatever the case, you can expect to hear more about it soon - SuperBot Entertainment is expected to officially reveal more characters at gamescom 2012 next week. Keep it right here on PSU.com, as we'll be covering the event from the show floor and here at PSU Towers.

You can also notice Sir Daniel in the very VERY back on the right next to Cole. My only questions are
- Who is it at the immediate right of Big Daddy?
- And why so many Tekken characters? (Just wondering)

I gotta agree with Tylernocks Teepeenocks, his list was great. I would just make a few changes and one correction.Wander from shadow of the colossusWhy? Reason being is because wander is like the link of the playstation universe, he's a heroic icon. Unlike others he's both a close range (sword) and long range (bow and arrow) fighter and he's fast. Pretty durable, too, considering how he has fallen off 70ft tall colossi.Level 1- Wander's horse runs to wander hiting everyone in its pathLevel 2- Wander gets on the flying colossus (number 10)(number 12 and 5 are the flying ones, I would go with number 5 Avion #KeyChange) and it falcon drops on the screen making a kinda explosion like effect and when it hits the ground wander jumps off and the colosssus flies away (you should be able to ride it across the stage once and press a button to stab it when you want it to fall #KeyChange)level 3- you stab the HUGE colossus (number 1) on the head making him go on a rampages killing everything in its path after like 3 sec or so the colossus wiggles his head and wander falls off and the colossus runs away. (I think you can make this progressive like using colossus number 1 the first time you do a 3 then colossus #3 and finally colossus #15 the 3rd time #keyChange)

where are drake and heihachi (and sackboy and raiden) in the smaller photo?
If the top image is correct, wouldn't that mean a roster of only 20?
With the exception of the already officially confirmed characters (besides cole and jak/daxter,which in itself is suspicious), all of the pictures of the characters in the small photo can be found in other places (like concept or promotional art). This could be a coincidence, but all of the stances of all of the "leaked" characters being previously seen images vs. the confirmed characters? Seems sketchy. It's either a poorly done early render, or a fairly decent photoshop job
here's a picture to illustrate my point http://www.gameranx.com/img/12-Aug/tekken-ryu-character-art.jpg
as someone on the forums pointed out, these character images could be incomplete (intentionally or unintentionally) and the other two tekken characters and little sister could be "minions"
I'm not saying I wouldn't enjoy if these characters were in, because I really would (especially sackboy!!!!) but I guess we'll just have to wait for gamescom.
