No, he didn't say 22 even. He said 22+ (plus) meaning more than just 22. I'd assume anywhere from 24 to 26. Anything higher than 26 would be EPIC! I personally want as many characters as possible, 30, 40, 50, the more the merrier. Now I know the odds of 40 or 50 playable characters actually happening is low, but I think with DLC that 30 is realistically possible. Although a large 50 or more character roster would work well for a game like this. Man, if only Superbot was willing to take it this far.
