As the topic suggests, both Kat (from Gravity Rush) and Emmett Graves(from Starhawk) will be DLC for Sony's Playstation All Stars: Battle Royale. They are to be added to the roster in 2013 for the awesome price of free for the first two weeks. After the two week window, I assume you'll have to pay for them, and I don't know how much they will be.

This is awesome news. I was on the fence about this title. I played the beta, and like many others, felt there was just no soul in the game. With questionable mechanics and an odd choice of UI, I wasn't quite sold on the game just yet. However, its great to see they'll still be adding characters to the roster post launch. I absolutely adore Kat. She's probably one of my favorite new characters from this year. Don't really have much love for Emmett. I haven't played Starhawk yet, but I'm sure his moveset will bring some interesting variety to the game.
All this post launch DLC stuff gets me excited for the possibility of Selvaria turning up in the roster.
I might just have to get this now. They seem to adding a lot of value to the package. Free version of the Vita version when you buy the ps3 one at no additional cost is an awesome thing.
Update: The DLC characters will also have their own stories and rivalries(?) in single player mode.
Do DLC characters have single player stories? are these 2 rivals?
Yes, happy to say both Kat and Emmett have full story modes complete with rivalry cinematically. Are they rivals? Hmmm… - Seth Killian from the PSBlog
Update: A release date for Kat and Emmett has been announced. They will be on PSN on February 12th, and they will be free for the first two weeks.The new stage, Fearless, will also be out sometime in February, but that is not free.
