Since this is a hot topic right now and there are tons of threads coming up about it I thinking we could take most of the discussion in here. It's up to you all though. So yea, have at it!
I told you all that you will be getting your moneys worth for this game imo. The team at SB cares about you all just remember that. Group effort
Emmett Graves mose might be the most interesting because he has so much tech to work with. The hawks, the Rift, Build-in-Battle. I'm exicited for this release. We may have a DLC stage announcement as well soon in due time, but for now Kat and Emmett are the highlights.
I really couldn't have thought of a more awesome release date announcement. Kat is a REALLY awesome charecter and I think emmet is cool too (I'll have to play his game soon.) Anyway I am really glad they confirmed these and the bonus of them being free is AMAZING.
Maybe for the next DLC, SuperBot will release some characters that weren't a total flop or from a game on a system people actually played. I really hate saying this, but *shudders* Crash would have made for more of an "All-Star" free DLC introduction.... Excuse me while I go shower now
For your information, Kat is a much needed boost for this game because of the Japanese market (and the fact that it adds one more female character tot he roster isn't a bad thing) and Emmett was chosen to represent a very good series exclusive to the PS3. Neither of these announced characters are superfluous. Both are good aditions, especially because both will play VERY differently from all the other characters.
