If this is the full roster (which its NOT) Crash would be in.
-they said he "would be free NOT DLC"
-they said they had no trouble getting the characters they'd asked for. They stated "we've thought of Crash, yes" - which means they probably asked for him. Also, if they'd asked for Crash, he's in, obviously, as they'd stated they had no trouble getting the characters they'd asked for. Chill.
This one? I was actually going to touch on it but decided not to. I really don't have a comment for it, because I'm pretty much done with talking about singular characters for reasons that I can assume are obvious. All I'd say is "Why would SuperBot reaveal sets of characters four-at-a-time with three months left in the game's development if that's all that was left?" and "Why would that be all that's left when the final boss isn't in the beta files?"
