Don't show this image to Kamiya

Outspoken Platinum Games developer Hideki Kamiya has kick-started the console wars once more, describing the upcoming PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale as a “rip-off” without “morals”. The Devil May Cry developer really tore into the title on Twitter overnight, prompting plenty of inevitable angry responses.

We don’t necessarily take issue with Kamiya’s comments – PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale is clearly inspired by Nintendo’s own Super Smash Bros., something that developer SuperBot Entertainment has not been shy about acknowledging. At the end of the day, though, almost everything in existence is inspired by something else – y'know, a bit like Kamiya’s own Okami. Shots fired.
