It looks quite fun. Sony has a decent range of IPs and I think this will help to make them more widely known. It's not as if every character in Smash Bros has the same level of recognition as Mario.

The whining from Nintendo fans is hilarious.

The game looks...okay I suppose, I would need more to perk up my interest. I wonder who the final boss will be...maybe Polygon Man?

I will say this though...in the unlikely event Sony gets Kazuma Kiryu to guest star in this, I WILL BLOODY DAMN WELL DAY ONE THIS GAME.

I still think the game has potential, hopefully the cast can be the stand out. Though honestly, I can't really think of too many Sony characters that I really need to see. :/

There are 6 characters announced. Wait for reveals of bigger characters....e3 probably.

It's been crazy. Can't wait to see what happens next.


I think people are surprised because how much this looks like SSB. At least for me, I thought it was going to have massive differences from the game it's inspired from but that didn't turn out from at least the footage I saw >>

There's really not much to say about this game. Balancing all these very tonally diverse franchises seems to have caused Superbot to go for a muted colour scheme, and it looks very ugly. Parappa's inclusion is cool. Other than that, uh...it looks just like Smash Bros,.

It will sell the same as every PS exclusive, enough to justify its existence but won't set the world on fire. What's so interesting about that?

Yeah, VISUALLY the game doesn't come together nearly as well as Smash. Them having to outline the characters so you can keep track is evidence enough. It looks much too washed out.

EDIT: Although the characters aren't always highlighted so we're probably missing something.

I gotta agree with Gunloc about the stages. They did look washed out a bit, and not really all that impressive considering this is PS3, and the stuff in Smash Bros looked better.

Trust me, I've never seen a worst online than Brawl's, I couldn't even play with friends who lived 10 miles away from me.

Probably the same as any other mid-tier Sony first-party game, which is decent but unremarkable.

Yeah I know, but it'd be better to adjust the background to make them visible without it. It's like those games where key items have to shimmer or shine because they couldn't think of better ways to make them visible out of everything else

I think it looks pretty great. I grew up on Playstation just as much as Nintendo, and I've been wanting a Playstation Smash Bros. clone for the better part of 10 years, so I'm happy.

How do you win though? I didn't see any health bars nor did I see anybody getting knocked out of the stage...

Crash Team Racing was awesome, but it was made by ND. These guys don't have a proven track record, and the game definitely has some underwhelming visuals. The last Smash Bros game I played was on the N64, so I'm not sure if this game is really for me.

This is the main problem. Almost every post about this game from now until release is going to be either "Smash has this and this so obviously Battle Royale will do it just as well or better" or "Smash has this and this and Battle Royale sucks because it will never be Smash" or some variant of the two.

This game will forever be linked to Smash Bros much like Battlefield 3 was to COD
