Recently several companies have attempted to clone the popular Smash Bros series of games by gathering a lot of their characters, putting them in 2D arenas and having them fight. What they’ve found out is what all those Mario clones and kart racer knockoffs did in the 90s: Nintendo’s ideas are deceptively simple, but VERY HARD to beat at their own game (or games).

We hate to be the one to break it to you, but there will NEVER EVER be any Nickelodeon characters in the Super Smash Bros series. Creator Masahiro Sakurai laid down the rule that only characters originating in the video game market can be considered as fighters. Good thing, then, that Nick is willing to create a ripoff, and they have enough of their own characters to fill a game’s roster on their own.
