... I don't care if it's Spike Spiegel or Naruto, I don't want no anime in my Smash Bros. Jump Ultimate Stars is the department for all that craziness.
If it's true, I'm not sure what to think of it. If Ninty wants "help" for one of their most loved first party titles, then it's pretty obvious how ****in' awesome it's gonna be. Namco Bandai has made their fair share of decent fightin' games too, so I doubt they wouldn't pull their weight.
Still, I'm rather wary that there will be outside influences involved in the development. If Smash Bros. changed in a gigantic way because of this, I'd lose a part of my soul... ;_;
