I could of swore that Superbot said that there will be surprises at PAX.... I didn't know leaked characters that were after confirmed by them considered a surprise... I am missing something here??
Their tweet (ugh, I dislike that term) made it sound as though some really big news was headed our way. Since PAX lined up with Crash's 16th birthday people (myself included) started hoping he'd be the big surprise.
Instead we were treated to Sir Daniel, Nariko, a new level (Time Station), a new item (that sonic blast thing from Modnation Racers), and a glimpse at what can be unlocked (intros, outros, belts, etc...). While writing this I realize they actually revealed a lot, though it was not the big surprise many were hoping for.
Still, a few months and several events stand between you and All Stars. Who knows what might be revealed!
I was actually hoping they would talk about some of the other modes or show some footage from stock mode or the rumored CTF mode.
