    A little late on this, but better late than never. I have a video I took of it myself for those wanting to see it, without having to have a Vita/PS3.

    Ah, good to see Fat Princess is in the beta. I was hoping for a Battle Royale with Cheesecake.

    It obviously is, and even Sony basically admtited that it was "inspired by" SSB months ago. They said something like "It draws heavily from Super Smash brother" or the like.

    Not to get into this spat again but taking inspiration from something isn't a rip off. Gameplay wise it's relatively unique and the concept of crossover fighters is far from SSB territory.

    But let's try to keep this on the game itself and not turn this into a thread full of butthurt SSB wankers, shall we?

    There was a several page long argument on this topic a while ago; it's not exactly something we need to revisit. Just keep in mind that there's a distinction between "inspired by" and "ripped off from".

    I thought SSB was based off of Street Fighter/Double Dragon, so it makes more sense to say it's a street fighter ripoff.
    No?

    LET THE CIRCLEWANK BEGIN.

    Let's try not turning this into a "SSB is so gud guyz is the most best fighter ever" or "this game is a shit rip off" thread.

    For once I'd like to see a PASBR thread about the game and not about a bunch of butthurt.

    They have similar gameplay. If you try to deny it, you have to be impaired in some way.

    This isn't a fighting game. It's a giant Sony All-Star Character Orgy meant to inspire orgasms and nostalgia. That's the only direct similarity it shares with Super Smash Bros.
