It appears that a large chunk of the PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale roster has been leaked by an inside source, as a string of images has seemingly confirmed characters like Metal Gear Rising‘s Raiden, Devil May Cry‘s Dante, and even PS3 launch game icon Nariko from Heavenly Sword. Along with new characters, several stages have also been revealed in the game’s code.

Here’s the full list of new characters that have been outed, courtesy of NeoGAF, who picked up the news from Reddit:

  • Raiden (Metal Gear Rising)
  • Dante (DmC: Devil May Cry)
  • Ratchet (Ratchet & Clank)
  • Sackboy (LittleBigPlanet)
  • Spike (Ape Escape)
  • Sir Daniel Fortesque (Medievil)
  • Nariko (Heavenly Sword)
  • “Evil” Cole MacGrath (inFAMOUS, already confirmed)

We’ll update the story with more images as we gather sources, but here’s a peak at some of the images that accompanied the leak. First up is the original photo with the hidden characters, with cleaner, updated versions that have been put together by NeoGAF members “baekshi” and “miladesn” earlier today.

Right now, the only question is whether the leak is legit, or if this is a repeat of the infamous Super Smash Bros. Brawl leaks that we all fell hook, line, and sinker for a while back. Judging from the activity and speculation around the supposed leaks, it’s definitely possible that some beta user hacked their demo build.
