Important Words Directly From Omar At Presentation

How many characters will be in the game at launch?

"Our launch roster is 20 characters. The 20 characters available today in this demo are the characters that will be in the game at launch."

 

Are there Unlockable Characters?
"We went back and forth on this. Ultimately we decided not to have any characters unlocked, so the full roster will be aviailable from the first time you play the game""


Is the current demo the final build?

"No"

 

Is Crash in the game?

"we obviously know how important various character are to the game, crash bandicoot in particular. It takes two to tango. We want Crash, the fans want Crash. We're very interested in making that happen but you know, it's not for free. We obviously recognize the interest in Crash and characters like Crash."

 

Will there be DLC?

"It's something we'll have to see if the fans want it, and if there's enough support launch. If there's enough support we'll think about adding DLC"

 

Do you want to be an EVO type game or more of a mass market type?

"I think obviously we want to appeal to as many people as we possibly can. The EVO crowd is very interesting. You don't get in by forcing yourselves on them. They decide what they want to play and what they don't. It really is up to the fans. I would love it if they did pick it up, but it's up to them."

 

How are you going to incorporate items without breaking the balance?

"We took the approach that they wouldn't be trump cards. It's complimentary to the core combat. They either disrupt or provide AP. Sometimes they protect you from Supers. We pull from all sorts of Playstation properties. We've got one item that can kill you, the Medusa Head from God of War. That's called an Epic Item, and is the only item that kills."

 

Any Characters in Particular You Wanted But Couldn't Get?

"Yes. Like I said, it take two to tango."

 

 

Quote: 
"We know we can always add more characters, and we're going to be always trying to do that."

 

Will there be a demo for the game? 
"Yeah, currently I believe there is a Beta for Playstation Plus users right now. It will be opening up in the future. Stay Tuned (Famous Last Words)."

It is. It always was. They said if it didn't match what they wanted to put in the game they wouldn't add it. I really wonder what Activision had in mind for Spyro and Crash that leaded up to a disagreement on how the character would be represented. At least it confirms that they actually tried to get him.
