Why So Many Platform Fighters Fall Off After Release

New platform fighters have been popping up as developers try to capitalize on Super Smash Bros' popularity, but they all seem to lose steam post-launch.

Asplundh411d ago

Microsoft should give the genre a try after they complete the Activision Blizzard acquisition.

Throwing money at a fighting game won't save it alone. Look at Jump Force

Asplundh411d ago

No Jump Force wasn't a great game, but Killer Instinct(2013) which became a bit of a crossover fighter itself was well received, MS could get Iron Galaxy(one of studios behind it) to give it a shot.

We already joked about this in the days of PlayStation All-Stars.

It would be Master Chief, Baird, Marcus, a car from Forza, a plane from Flight Simulator, and Banjo. That's about it.

Asplundh411d ago

Battle Toads, Crash, Spyro, Doom Guy, Pip Boy, Conker, Overwatch characters, Lost Vikings, Killer Instinct characters, WOW characters, Psychonauts, Minecrafts Steve.

Hell put Tony Hawk's ass in there swinging skateboards at people.

I like that Tony Hawk skateboard clobbering idea.

CS7411d ago

The problem @Asplundh is that it would feel cheap.

Even if the deal goes through Xbox hasn’t earned Crash/Spyro l etc yet.

What makes these games work is beloved characters in related worlds coming together.

Crash vs Masterchief would just be soulless and cheap as MS brand has no investment in the Crash brand.

Anyways, soulless and cheap is on brand for MS so it just might work.

That's totally, 100% honestly the only thing they could pull from.

Do I need to put in that this is sarcasm, or can you admit that's highly BS?

Between Xbox, Bethesda, Activision, and Blizzard, MS have so many iconic franchises and characters at their disposal. They could pull it off. Though I don't think a platform fighter would suit the brand. Either a 3rd person action fighter, or a first person hero shooter/brawler would be a better fit.

New character reveals for Smash Bros hits harder than every other platform fighter

CorndogBurglar410d ago (Edited 410d ago )

Because no other platform fighter has done it as well as Super Smash Bros. It's really that simple. Even Multiversus, which is ALMOST as good as Smash Bros, still falls short.

It's hard to make a genre based game when no one puts in the effort to make it any better than the OG.

sadraiden410d ago

This just in, modern developers attempting to clone Smash, can't make a better version of the game that's existed without competition for 30 years.
