Well, apparently SCEJ is the boss of SCEA much like Nintendo of Japan controls Reggie NoA, so once they got wind of the situation they stepped on the PR department for creating all this.

Nothing was ever concrete, as he never made it that way (i.e. A character with a sword- lol) so he was able to save face or connect the hints to something totally left-field. From what I gathered, he's hinted at Snake, Crash and more recently Cloud.

Are you guys reading the same thing I am?

The story reads as if Kamiya ragging on the game was the tipping point in acquiring new characters for post-release DLC, mandated by SCEJ.

I call BS.

You should probably include this in the OP. It really goes two ways though:

- You could say that Afro's friend made up that story for being laid off

- Going by the story, SuperBot may not actually be telling the truth here, as they've said that they weren't affiliated with Paul a while ago

Either way, screw Paul Gale.

...Kamiya's Twitter statement that the game is "a Smash Bros. rip-off".

Why would they even try to combat that? It's as blatant a rip-off as I've ever seen.
Of course, that doesn't necessarily mean it will be a bad game. But it is what it is.

This all seems like a huge overreaction for a game that doesn't deserve nearly this much attention. Lesson learned for all involved: Don't Be A Piece Of Shit Thinking You're Clever

So the "thing" Platinum Games was actually not happy about was probably this, and not the game it self.


But ofc, "Platinum Games not happy with All Stars" makes better headlines. Sucks that people lost their jobs over this though.

If some PR reps got caught using a third party to deliberately mislead people about what would be in the game, then firing them was probably the right thing to do. The beta leaks and Platinum complaints are really a sideshow to that.

I wouldn't say it's going down in flames. The average person will have no idea about this marketing fiasco.

Inaba clearly states that they aren't happy with some stuff in All Stars, the game. Kamiya doesn't care for it either and has called it a smash bros ripoff on twitter.

I didn't say anything about Kamiya, and tbh, nothing Inaba doesn't really say much besides "reasons are different" and Yuji Korekado is pretty specific.
