Lots of good choices. Some of them I feel should be saved for paid DLC like a Marvel character, a Star Wars rep, a LEGO character, etc. I went with those who I feel would be great bonus additions and those who are barely in/never appeared in a platform fighters
Final Stage Line-Up Thoughts
It is a pretty solid line-up in my opinion. Lots of good locations. I wish we got home stages for every character but I'm happy we squeezed in some locations like a Playskool stage, the RoboRally Widget Factory, a Tomica/Plarail stage, etc. There's lots of good locations.
I just hope for DLC, we give homestages to every base game character as some are missing a stage for themselves. Alongside this, I hope we get more Hasbro IPs represented as stage franchises like an Elefun stage, more of the board games Hasbro owns, etc. Basically, more ways to represent unrepresented Hasbro IPs and such. We can even give minorly represented franchises such as the "Represented by assist or item only" franchises a stage. Lots of cool ideas.

Release Date Reveal Trailer:
A Genesis of Creativity and Fighting!
We start the trailer off with the black screen with the ratings and all. Then, we cut to the dark toy room where the Hasbro family are playing their Dungeons and Dragons campaign with the already revealed fighters and items. We see that the family is just sitting there...bored.
Hasbro Boy: Well um....where do we take everyone now on our journey?
The Hasbro parents shrug. We then see the Hasbro Boy's dad just scratch his head. Then, he comes up with an idea.
We then see the Hasbro Boy's dad's hands grab some board game box containing four strange looking creatures. He takes out all of the components and then we zoom into CGI where we see all the fighters exploring some strange carnival. We see the Power Rangers looking weirdly at some of the rides, Optimus Prime trying to pcik up some cotton candy, Pinkie Pie and her fellow ponies go play the carnival games.
Then, we see in the background a cat with an artist outfit, a strange looking alien, a worm with a dictionary and a starfish with a microphone. They are seen approaching a stage as we hear a voice on some mics.
Voice on the speakers: "Ladies and gentlemen!!!! It's time for the annual Cranium competition! May all the competitors please line up at the start all the way in the back pleaseeeee!"
We see the fighters run over with shadows of people running past them. Everyone is seen at the start of the board but then the Hasbro fighters ecide to see who these mysterious creatures are running the game.
Voice on the speakers: "And now, to begin the annual Cranium competition....please give a warm welcome to...the Cranium gang!!!"
We see the Cranium Gang appear on the stage where we see them appear on the stage.
Optimus Prime: So that's the shadows who we saw!
We see the fighters try to approach them but then, the Cranium gang gets ready to show off their talents.
It then cuts to an introduction screen with the Cranium Gang making a pose with text by it with the announcer saying the Cranium Gang's name and then we cut to gameplay of the Cranium Gang fighting against various fighters and showcasing off the Cranium Board stage.
Hasbro Boy: Each of them seems to do their own thing!
We get more footage of each member's unique style.
Hasbro Dad: It's a four-in-one treat, that's for sure!
We then finally see their Supers.
We cut back to CGI where then we see the fighters all tired out from the Cranium Gang's attacks and creativity. We then see the Cranium Gang take a bow and then get back to their creativity. However, we see Creative Cat try to sculpt with their clay. However, they seem to ran out. Fortunately, the Star Performer points out some...strange green container that was placed there.
We zoom out to the Hasbro family.
Hasbro Boy: So um...the Cranium clay is all dry?
Hasbro Dad: It seems like it...but now....
We zoom back to the CGI where Creative Cat is about to open the green container until...a face shows and it attacks the Cat and it is revealed to be...a Play-Doh container?!?!
It then cuts to an introduction screen with the Play-Doh Container making a pose with text by it with the announcer saying Play Doh's name and then we cut to gameplay of Play-Doh fighting against various fighters and showcasing off the Doh-Doh Island stage.
We then cut to the Supers of the Play-Doh.
It then ends with all the fighters revealed thus far going out into an all-out scuffle. Then, the trailer tries to end on a black screen....but it's a fake out.
We zoom out to the family once again.
Hasbro Dad: It seems like we're getting super creative here on our campaign!
We then see a whole bunch of other Hasbro toys, board games, etc. that the Hasbro Dad is placing down on their table.
Hasbro Mom: Do we want to add more to this story?
Hasbro Boy then nods.
We see the Hasbro Dad add more items to the table.
Then, it cuts to this text that the announcer says:
More Fun to Have in the Game Night Fight!
We first cut to a crib-like stage with a boat being revealed to be the Playskool Crib stage where Tommy Oliver, the Play-Doh Container, Snake Eyes and Pinkie Pie are fighting. We see Pinkie Pie pick up what is revealed to be the Glo-Worm and KO Tommy Oliver with it. But then, the Play-Doh container is being followed around by the now-revealed Diddy Wishingwell assist
We then cut to another stage in a factory being the RoboRally Widget Factory where we see Bumblebee fight against the Cranium Gang, Jem and Mr. Monopoly. We zoom into Bumblebee being followed by Trailcutter and we see Trailcutter's assist function. We then see Mr. Monopoly use what appears to be the Slot Machine item to gain a Super Strong item.
We also cut to the now-revealed Plarail/Tomica World stage with Rita Repulsa, Mr. Potato Head and Starscream fighting on it. We see Mr. Potato Head use the Choro-Q/Penny Racer Car item on Starscream. Then, we see Starscream consume the Giga Pudding item as a newly revealed item.
Finally, we cut to footage of the newly revealed Bop-It Xtreme stage where we see Jason fighting against Cobra Commander. We see Cobra Commader with the Ice Cream Soldier assist and the assist's function on Jason.
We zoom out to the family once more showcasing off all the new characters, stages, items, etc. represented. It finally cuts to the Hasbro Game Night Fight screen with all the 22 revealed fighters and then we see the Cranium Gang and Play-Doh being added to the collection of fighters.
Then....it cuts to a black screen revealing:
