    Rumor: PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale Characters, Stages Leak

    Update: Sony responded to our inquiries regarding these leaks. Per usual, Sony notes that it "[doesn't] comment on rumors or speculation."
    Update: The NeoGAF forums have compiled a fresh list of purported (and still totally unverified) leaks that appear to have been extracted from game data in the recently-released PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale beta. Much of the data seems to come from this thread on GameFAQs.
    The data includes confirmation of each stage’s name in the format: [date] [time] [six digit number] display_level_[stage name].ctxr. So, for instance:
    28/07/2012 11:02 PM 748,672 display_level_Alden tower.ctxr
    There are 14 stages listed like this in the purported leaked data, and you can see the pictures of most of them in the original story below:


    • Alden’s Tower (Infamous)
    • Black Rock Stadium (Twisted Metal)
    • Columbia (BioShock Infinite)
    • Dojo (Parappa the Rapper)
    • Dreamscape (LittleBigPlanet)
    • Franzea (LocoRoco)
    • Hades (God of War)
    • Invasion (Killzone)
    • Metropolis (Ratchet & Clank)
    • Paris (Sly Cooper)
    • Sandover (Jak & Daxter)
    • San Francisco (Resistance)
    • Stowaways (Uncharted)
    • Time Station (Ape Escape)
    A fifteenth entry is marked as “random”, almost a definite sign of a randomized stage select option.
    Likewise, purported leak data shows all of the announced and rumored characters in the format: [date] [time] [five digit number] css_character_icon_[character name].ctxr OR ui_cs_text_[character name].ctxr. So, for instance:
    28/07/2012 11:02 PM 23,296 css_character_icon_coleevil.ctxr
    OR
    28/07/2012 11:02 PM 54,784 ui_cs_text_colradec.ctxr
    What’s interesting here is that the original six characters announced for the game (Colonel Radec, Fat Princess, Kratos, Parappa the Rapper, Sly Cooper and Sweet Tooth), along with Nathan Drake, are labeled with the latter format. All of the other characters -- some announced, others rumored in the leak -- are labeled with the former format.
    As NeoGAF points out, this, coupled with the fact that there’s an “unlockable_icon.ctxr” file, indicates that there are unlockable characters. Our assumption is that the six originally announced characters, plus Drake, are the characters available from the get-go. Everyone else can be unlocked by playing the game.
    Regardless, this data dump seems to confirm this as being at least part of the character roster, if not the whole thing:

    • Big Daddy(BioShock)*
    • Colonel Radec (Killzone)
    • Dante (DMC)
    • Evil Cole (Infamous)
    • Fat Princess (Fat Princess)
    • Good Cole (Infamous)
    • Heihachi (Tekken)
    • Jak & Daxter (Jak & Daxter)
    • Kratos (God of War)
    • Nariko (Heavenly Sword)
    • Nathan Drake (Uncharted)
    • Parappa the Rapper (Parappa the Rapper)
    • Raiden (Metal Gear Solid)
    • Ratchet (& Clank?) (Ratchet & Clank)
    • Sackboy (LittleBigPlanet)
    • Sir Daniel Fortesque (MediEvil)
    • Sly Cooper (Sly Cooper)
    • Spike (Ape Escape)
    • Sweet Tooth (Twisted Metal)
    • Toro (Sony Icon)
    * - Big Daddy is confirmed, but doesn't appear in the data leak.
    Also in the leaked files rumored to have come from PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale are lists of items to use in-game, as well as characters called “Minions” that will likely appear as NPCs on various stages. Examiner.com broke down the items and Minions into something a little more readable, and also identified their game-centric origins. So here they are.
    First, the items:

    • Atomizer (Resistance 3)
    • Baumusu Axe (The Mark of Kri)
    • Boots of Hermes (God of War III)
    • Dohvat Laser Designator (Killzone 3)
    • Freeze Missile (Twisted Metal)
    • Golf Club (Hot Shots Golf)
    • Gravity Shield (WipeOut)
    • Hedgehog Grenade (Resistance)
    • Leech Beem (WipeOut)
    • Murder of Crows (BioShock Infinite)
    • Railgun (Metal Gear Solid 4)
    • Razor Claws (Ratchet & Clank)
    • RPG (Uncharted)
    • Scythe (Fat Princess)
    • Sonic Rift (ModNation Racers)
    • Spear (God of War)
    And the Minions:

    • Athena (God of War)
    • Captain Qwark (Ratchet & Clank)
    • Dollface (Twisted Metal)
    • Helghast (Killzone)
    • Kai (Heavenly Sword)
    • Kat (DMC)
    • Keira (Jak & Daxter)
    • Kiya (MediEvil)
    • Kuma (Tekken)
    • Little Sister (BioShock)
    • Monkey (Ape Escape)
    • Murray (Sly Cooper)
    • Nix (Infamous 2)
    • Pierre (Doko Demo Issho)
    • PJ Berri (Parappa the Rapper)
    • Sackbot (LittleBigPlanet 2)
    • Sam (Metal Gear Rising)
    • Sully (Uncharted)
    • Worker (Fat Princess)
    • Zeke (Infamous)
    Finally, the rumored leaks also contain a list of what appears to be game modes and other randomness. As far as modes are concerned, here’s what it can be boiled down to:

    • Arcade Mode
    • Capture the Flag
    • Challenge Trials
    • Character Trials
    • Countdown Attack
    • Free Roam
    • General Trials
    • King of the Hill
    • LAN Game
    • Solo Play
    There’s also random mention here of things like “Gold Stars Collected”, indicating that there will be an in-game “Gold Stars” system for accomplishing certain feats and tasks. Likewise, there are items mentioned called “Clue Bottles”, “Killer Bees” and more.
    AI difficulty is also mentioned: Easy, Normal, Hard and Insane.
    We’ve pinged Sony again, as we did yesterday when the story originally broke, and will update if and when we hear back from them. In the meantime, keep in mind that while all of this certainly seems real, it's still unverified.
    Update: Even more images of stages have now surfaced, courtesy of the NeoGAF forums. User miladesn posted the following images of additional stages allegedly from the game, and user shagg_187 has provided the alleged names for the stages.
    "San Francisco" (Resistance)

    "Timestation" (Ape Escape)

    "Stowaways" (Uncharted)

    According to the forums, these images will allegedly be the icons used for the game's stage select screen.
    ORIGINAL STORY
    Until we receive official confirmation from Sony and/or SuperBot Entertainment, take all of this with a grain of salt. But Reddit is alight with activity surrounding PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, and in particular images of an unknown origin that seem to include a bunch of new, yet-unannounced characters and stages.
    Reddit user 696Ly has posted a bunch of pictures with the words “leak” littered all over them, including one picture of character portraits and more of individual stages. He calls his source "a friend of a friend" and says the source is "reliable".
    Let’s start with the characters first.
    The image, seen below, shows 12 characters. Four of them are known, announced and confirmed characters: Heihachi, Toro, Jak and Cole. However, eight of them are characters that -- if this image is real -- have yet to be announced. Among them are two characters that appear to be Raiden from Metal Gear Solid and Dante from Ninja Theory’s DmC.
    Update: A clearer version has now emerged via user plainr_ on the NeoGAF forums:

    The remaining six characters are easy enough to identify: Ratchet (Ratchet & Clank), Sackboy (LittleBigPlanet), Spike (Ape Escape), Sir Daniel Fortesque (MediEvil), Nariko (Heavenly Sword) and, surprisingly, Evil Cole (Infamous). The latter makes the Cole that was already revealed, presumably, Good Cole. (There is some speculation that Evil Cole could be Nathan Hale from Resistance.)
    NeoGAF aptly points out that many -- if not all -- of the art shown here previously exists somewhere else, so this could just be a fake. It's also worth noting that the image doesn't include a half-dozen confirmed characters, indicating, if it's real, that there will be more characters than just the ones shown.
    The stage imagery makes all of this seem a lot more real, or at least a much more elaborate hoax. 696Ly posted the stages in tiny form with the word “leak” written all over them, but later gave everyone a taste of most of them (so far). These look very real, especially considering one of them -- Dreamscape -- we’ve already seen as a confirmed level. Here’s what he’s posted.
    "Columbia" (BioShock Infinite)

    "Alden's Tower" (Infamous)

    "Dreamscape" (LittleBigPlanet, previously confirmed)

    "Invasion" (Killzone)

    "Franzea" (LocoRoco)

    "Paris" (Sly Cooper)

    "Black Rock Stadium" (Twisted Metal)

    A larger image posted on Reddit that contains the above stages and characters also has a few stages that yet lack clear photos. One of those stages, as we pointed out last week, appears to be from Ape Escape, and can be seen in a picture of a SuperBot Entertainment employee's desktop monitor that once appeared on the company's website. The nature of the other unidentified stages remains a mystery.
    We've reached out to Sony for official comment, clarification and/or confirmation, and will update when we hear back.
    Each and every image above is courtesy of Reddit user 696Ly.

    Not sure why we would want 2 Coles in one game. One is personally enough, if this is true.

    As long as Sweet Tooth, Big Daddy, and Ratchet are in the game, I will be happy.

    Also, that Bioshock Infinite stage looks cool (as do most others, the Infamous one looks rather boring though).

    Each character has his/her own story, Good Cole will do something good, and Evil Cole evil.

    I don't think this is true. Cole evil/good will probably be a costume swap (as opposed to two characters). Much like Kratos/Deimos.

    2 Coles? I guess I could see the point story-wise, but I'd prefer at the end of Cole's story us choosing good or bad. As for the rest?


    The stages at least. All of the characters are from past art, so I am not even going to count them. Those stages seem real enough though...

    Costume swap and different powers e.g. sticky grenades vs cluster grenades, homing rockets vs scatter rockets etc

    Oh, Kat from DMC a minion, not Gravity Rush. Still a chance!

    Lots of info, hopefully more than a simple set of characters is unveiled at Gamescom.

    Everything seems pretty legit except having Bioshock Infinite stuff in it and having 2 Coles. Bioshock Infinite isn't coming out until February and why represent Big Daddy with stuff from a game he's not even in? Would've made much more sense to have a stage from Rapture with Splicers causing mayhem and the item be the insect swarm plasmid. The 2 Coles thing just seems pointless, but I do remember in the video introducing him, they only showed him using ice and electric powers, so I guess the Evil Cole wouldn't exactly be a clone considering he should have fire powers... They still should have just brought in a completely new character though. (If this is all true of course.)

    When life gives you lemons, make orange juice and leave people wondering how the hell you did it.

    None of the 'leaked' characters seem too surprising, except for Raiden. Why have Raiden (Cyborg Ninja or not) in there and not Solid Snake or even Big Boss?

    I'll be the first to say it, I guess... please please please please please don't be the "full roster." Crash and Spyro don't deserve to be down-the-road DLC (or absent).

    Spyro is the lead character in one of the hottest selling games right now. To get his likeness would cost a fortune so don't hold your breath.

    I'm just saying. Spyro is an "All-Star," there's no denying that, so I'm going to keep my fingers crossed he's in this even if it's just a pipe dream.

    I agree with this . Definitely need to see him in it.. and I want more characters than those few. Nice list so far and I"ll probably still end up getting this. .

    Thanks to the OP btw for finding leaked information.

    Remember this isn't the full roster, just the leaked one. What else they've managed to include is still a secret, and even if I highly doubt Crash or Spyro are among them, there's still the possibility of them being there.

    Do you mean how this all leaked? Some guys were looking at dormant codes and extraction of game data in the beta and found all this out through clever detective work.

    I want Spyro as well. He would make a great addition, and make money. We all know Activision likes legal currency.
