What if Microsoft made a super smash clone? Would you buy it?

Figthing games overall have a much smaller audience compared to competitive shooters/battle royales or MOBAs. I think it wouldn't succeed due to the smaller size of the community, they would have to deliver a hell of a game just to grab a slice of a smaller pie.

 

They better invest in a good next Halo.

If you go all the way back to OG Xbox days there should be no problem filling the roster with a relatively diverse cast. I wouldn't buy it unless it actually looked good, though. I was already burned by PS All Stars.



While I do think that Microsoft could make a fighting game with their main characters, I do kinda feel they'd have to switch up the design a little bit so that it would work for the characters that are popular from Microsoft.

Not only that, but Killer Instinct already had a lot of cameo DLC

I agree completely. I haven't played the most recent Killer Instinct game but I could imagine making a fighting game just based on Rare characters alone.

They certainly have more than enough characters to do it. But would I buy it, nope, smash doesn't interest me let alone a clone of it.



I don't even like Smash! I've bought them all but the only one I actually spent any amount of time with was the one for the Wii (two player co-op story mode). The rest, I just play a few characters and toss it on the shelf.

Considering that I don't buy the OG Smash games, I don't think I'd purchase an XB version either. That kind of game feels at home on Ninty too.



If they did a better job of cloning it than Sony did, sure! Could be fun to see some obscure characters from Microsoft’s past. Maybe Stubbs the zombie, or some piñata animals, maybe some grabbed by the ghoulies characters. Could be fun as long as they actually clone smash bros and don’t try to be too different like all stars.

They would have to make a buch better clone than Sony did if they wanted it not to fail.
