The show is very good, would be nice to see how it translates into a game, but we all know that these Tv series based games rarely come about. Remember the Heroes and Dexter based games that were meant to be in development.
before the "oh my gawd its a blatant ripoff" comments begin,
The King of Fighters was released by SNK in 1994
Fighter's Megamix was released by Sega in 1996
X-Men vs Street Fighter was released by Capcom in 1996
But when Nintendo released Smash Brothers its like they invented the crossover fighting genre like Apple invented touchscreen smart phones.
This is an old tried and true genre and successful formula every major game development company should have.
after all, arent all the FPS games a blatant ripoff of Wolfenstein3D?
sure the gameplay is very VERY similar to ssb, but honestly its not a reason for the nintendo fans to go apeshit because the gameplay is similar.
..if the game is good and fun...whats the problem? ...and what if the game end up being better and more fun than ssb?
I think you might be missing the point. I don't think the people will be mad about it being of the same genre as SSB, it's the fact that everything from the HUD to the level design to the gameplay is ripped right out of it. Yes there were cross over fighters before SSB, but none of them to my knowledge looked like SSB, they looked like fighting games. I don't disagree with you that it could still be a good game, but it is seriously unoriginal.
