How many characters will there be?

I heard around 20 from someone on this board. How many charcters did melee and brawl have? I will feel pretty underwhelmed if the charcter count is noticeably lower than melee and brawl but that will probably be the case.....
If there are going for around 20 then I could see the roster being something like...
Jak
Sly
Ratchet
Sweet Tooth
Parrapa
Fat Princess
Radec
Drake
Sackboy
Cloud or Lighting (I hope both)
Cole
Crash
Spyro
Yorda
Kat
Tomb Raider Girl
Sora (maybe)
Dr Nefarious (hopefully)
Sepheroth? (ehh. probably not...)
Gex
Kratos

Brawl has 35, but when Super Smash bros first came out, it only had 12. 20 or even in the upper 20 's is actually pretty good starting out. The more the better, but at least they are not starting with just 12, just like most brand new fighters.

28-ish from this will be a lot more refreshing than Brawls 35 for the sole reaosn being that a lot of those 35 were from melee and ssb 64.

The final roster for this game may be even.
With first and third parties characters.
If they have 14 or 12 first parties and third parties.

I'd be happy with around 25 if none of them were clones or felt too similar to each other. Kind of like Ganondorf was much too similar to Captain Falcon in SSBB, just slower.. and Fox, Falco and Wolf are basically clones of each other.. and Lucas/Ness feel pretty much the same as well. If PSASBR will have none of that and each character feels fresh and that they really bring something to the table, then around 25 would be just fine.

Add to that DLC characters and I'm sure the roster will turn out pretty darn good.

even melee which only had 25 characters has serval clones like marth/roy, link/young link, pikachu/pichu and the worst of all mario/dr.mario. i rather only have 20 characters then 25 and a seperate character called dr.nathan drake or young kratos.
