Toro, Kuro and Cole are because Sony wanted their own exclusive characters. Toro and Kuro have about 25% of the work put into making them compared to a regular character. They're Ryu and Kazuya clones but shorter.
We don't know about Mega Man and Pac-Man yet but Pac-Man is said to be like Mokujin - a character thats basically an alternate costume to other characters and plays 100% identical to them.

From: CyborgTwenty | #001 could have been 5 street fighter and tekken characters.
How would that have worked? If an SF character is linked to a Tekken character as per usual, the roster would be uneven. The only one I agree with is Mega Man and Pac-Man since they're from the two companies making the game, so they obviously could've not put them in and put in someone else. Toro, Kuro, and Cole are a third-party company, so chances are that Capcom and Namco hit a satisfactory number of characters and got a deal from Sony to include three guests if they had the room.

From: MeepleLardicle | #006 That's only if you take Lupiniko's twitter literally. Given how Lupiniko works, I highly doubt that's the case, and "Pacman functions like Mokujin" seems more likely.
I disagree. IIRC, he posted a silouette of a mokujin with Pac-man on his back before, and he has yet to make any similar suggestions with Megaman. And it would make no sense to have Megaman be a new character while Pac-Man is a mimic character.
Maybe Doopliss isn't kicking ass, but he's taking names!
