Don't expect any new character announcements for Sony and Superbot Entertainment's crossover fighting game PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale for the game's launch. According to a Sony rep, the company has already revealed the game's "full launch lineup of characters."

To date, Sony and Superbot have confirmed 20 fighters will appear in the game, from Sony-owned properties and third-party publishers. Given the language used — "launch lineup" — it's possible that PlayStation All-Stars could introduce additional downloadable characters after the game ships in November. Sony hasn't officially announced post-launch downloadable content, a Sony rep told Polygon.

The full launch lineup for PlayStation All-Stars is as follows:

  • Big Daddy (BioShock)
  • Cole McGrath (Infamous)
  • Colonel Radec (Killzone 2)
  • Dante (DMC)
  • Evil Cole (Infamous)
  • Fat Princess
  • Heihachi Mishima (Tekken)
  • Jak & Daxter
  • Kratos (God of War)
  • Nariko (Heavenly Sword)
  • Nathan Drake (Uncharted)
  • PaRappa the Rapper
  • Raiden (Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance)
  • Ratchet & Clank
  • Sackboy (LittleBigPlanet)
  • Sir Daniel Fortesque (MediEvil)
  • Sly Cooper
  • Spike (Ape Escape)
  • Sweet Tooth (Twisted Metal)
  • Toro

Sony still has plenty of PlayStation franchises to choose from for potential add-on characters, like Syphon Filter and Resistance, as well as characters from franchises already featured in PlayStation All-Stars.

PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale will be released for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita on November 20th in North America, then later in the week in Europe and Australia. Japan gets the game a bit earlier on November 8th.
