There is 20 plus characters. It's not a lie. And there is a lot to stay tuned about. We haven't even learned half the content and unlocks in the game yet
OH COME ON that is such a cop-out. He could very well say that there are 50+ characters if he was counting minions and mash-ups and Kuma, etc. He and everyone else know people ask in context of playable characters. That is such a poor excuse and a really flawed answer. No one, and i mean no one, vaguely suggests "20+" and expect people to think of side characters or NPCs. I mean, REALLY.
"How many characters will be in the final game?"
To say that he has technically not lied because minions, and appearances all add up to 60, is just pure nonsense.
Yeah. The fact that the Negativitron is already a stage hazard really makes it less believable that he's final boss.... UNLESS PARIS ITSELF IS THE FINAL BOSS ARENA AND THAT'S WHY IT'S FEATURED IN 2 STAGES.
...Or I could be going crazy with this. (still think that polygonman is final boss :U)
