The art style is strange to look at. Parappa and Fat Princess look really off.

This is an obvious SSB rip off, but then again CTR was a copy of MK, and that did well, but at the same time I don't see this being a great game. Good, probably, and it will sell, but I don't see this as something to crush the competition or move systems.

It looks merely decent to me. Outside a couple, PS characters aren't nearly as interesting as those in Smash. The fact that the gameplay seems to be a carbon copy without much new doesn't help either.

Still, if it turns out to be good, I'll check it out.

I agree. I was genuinely not impressed by this. It just doesn't look right for some reason. I'm eager to see more at E3 though and learn more about the game. I'm hoping there is a cool single player campaign kind of like Subspace Emissary.

The only thing that bothers me about making a Smash-like game is the inevitable All-Stars vs Smash Bros. arguments that are bound to happen. It's going to be terrible.

It looks more like Battle Stadium D.O.N than Smash Bros:
- Life bars
- No throw away your opponents gameplay

Or maybe more like Onimusha Blade Warriors.

I think it's kinda weird how blatant of a rip off of Super Smash Bros it actually is. I knew this was being talked about for a while, but wow...I didn't expect it to be EXACTLY like smash bros.

I hope they make the characters look different. Kratos and Sweet Tooth sort of look the same. Hard to tell them apart when things are hectic.

it's not EXACTLY like smash bros. It has better graphics and a functional online system.

JEEZ.

But no seriously, the problem I have is that there is a standard of quality in Smash that is automatically being attributed to this game merely by association when, in fact, there's no evidence to suggest that the developers are talented enough to pull off a Smash-like game that succeeds on its own merits.

Basically, if the implicit selling point is "It's just like smash brothers!" that's an automatic red flag from the start.

It's interesting how they established a new studio specifically for this game. Reminds me of Brawl's development. Perhaps lightning will strike again?
