    The title from the source says that they won't be giving support to this game, but its misleading, so I gave it a different title.
    No additional characters will be released. However, balance patch and free skins are coming later this year. The previous exclusive DLC will be made available.

    I thought this was known a while ago but w/e.

    I kinda like the game although it's not perfect, unfortunately I think a sequel is unlikely. But with a bit more polish, a larger roster, and some tweaks, it could be a really good fighter and kinda bridge the cap between SSB casualness and competitive-level games like Street Fighter.

    (please don't say SSB is competitive IDGAF).

    I always thought that melee could be quite competitive, but brawl did everything it could to negate that again.

    The game sold like absolute shit and the last characters were released ages ago. This is a surprise?

    It can be a bit fun with friends, but really, that's a lame excuse - anything is fun with friends. At this point, I think it's more than fair to say that All Stars was a false start.

    There were tons of stuff that the original company wanted in the game such as a Journey and Gravity Rush crossover stage.
    Seriously, go to Google now and look up all of the planned DLC that were dropped.

    Smash > SF in terms of competitiveness. Go learn son.

    Edit: Doesn't matter anyways, the game was dead on arrival.

    No he likes Street Fighter better in terms of competitiveness, which is even more mad gay. But p1ng has proven he likes crap games so I won't hold it against him.

    I'm glad, finally finished/platinum'd the game and sold it and deleted it off my Vita. It was fun at first, then I started noticing how broken the game was. I can't believe I even played online before the patches came, some of the stuff was shenanigans.

    Never even brought Zeus and Isaac.

    Its funny how people keeps bashing Smash as a competitive game despite everything. Someone missed the "one more year" chants at Evo 2013 lol

    no more DLC that was probably planned if the game was successful?



    edit there was: http://www.screwattack.com/news/dart-cancelled-playstation-all-stars-battle-royale-dlc-character

    Abe from Oddworld and Dart from Legend of Dragoon were canned

    absolute and utter failure sucks doesn't it?

    I felt the game fell flat. Its not surprising they are stopping support.
