When asked about the game through Twitter, Devil May Cry and Bayonetta designer Hideki Kamiya didn’t shy away from calling Sony’s upcoming “PlayStation All-Stars” game an immoral rip-off.
At first Kamiya tried to be diplomatic and limit his response to a simple “I don't like that game.” however, when pressed for explanation, he made his opinion clear that “It's just a rip-off... I don't like rip-off.”
Obviously, the designer is referring to Nintendo’s famous Super Smash Bros. series. It is no secret that PlayStation All-Stars is an imitation/adaptation of Super Smash Bros. with PlayStation characters.
One fan tried to defend the game, arguing that Sony is simply "listening to fans" and "following a successful series". But Kamiya didn’t buy any of that. "And throw morals away. Great," he completed the fan’s sentence.
