J-Stars Victory Vs. Good for Huge Anime Fans, Meh for Everyone Else (TGS Hands-on Preview | PSLS)

"What JSVS does have going for it is its genre; it is a decent multiplayer team-based fighter, of which there are so few. That alone makes it a little bit refreshing, at least for a while. The mechanics themselves leave something to be desired, and the roster appeals almost entirely to shounen anime fans, but it can at the very least provide some decent group fun. Huge fans of anime like Dragon Ball and Toriko might consider an import, as the game might not make it stateside. Those who don’t love the source material, meanwhile, will not be missing much." -PSLS (J-Stars Victory Vs, PS Vita, PS3, Tokyo Game Show)

I disagree.

I think a big problem with modern fighting games is how conservative the designs are. With anime-based games like this, we typically see a much more diverse roster of characters, with much more unique, exaggerated movesets.

That, if nothing else, should make the game appealing for non-fans. I mean, hell, I'm not a One Piece fan at all, but I love the One Piece Musou games because of all the different, crazy abilities the characters have.

It's like Shonen Smash Bros. I can't get behind that.
