Why no single player adventure mode like SSB?

I don't know about a full on adventure mode but a bit more development on the story would be nice. The rivalries don't actually feel like rivalries at the moment, they're just,
'oh you did X, or said Y, I don't like you now. Let's fight!'
tehn you have one match with him and you're done. that's not a rivalry that's just some random fight you had, much like the other random fights you just went through to get there.


exactly. rivalries are useless within a game where you can fight anyone. not only that, but the rivalry system is useless within a game where story is an afterthought.

story was overhyped, final boss was overhyped, heck minions were overhyped.


remember when peopel were saying, "hell yeah Polygon Man the best boss ever!!!" look at those people now. they don't even mention Polygon Man AT ALL.


"well unlike the crap that is Smash, All-Stars will be balanced! HA! take that!"

and now, "omg Kratos, Raiden, spammers! Sackbot should be nerfed! Sir Dan should be buffed!"

talk about a complete 180.

"hell yeah minions! tons and tons of unlocks! yeah content we haven't seen yet!"

now, "oh, minions don't do anything? oh so we only unlock image tiles and icons..and uhhh..titles or belts which really do nothing?"

Are you new to fighting games or something? Rivalries have been like this for years, even to this day.

1. It would take away from the most important aspect of a FG, Balance

2. It would sound like a REALLY bad fanfiction....

3. They would have had to have permission for whatever happened with each character. That would be Time-Consuming and a hassle for the devs and IP holders.....

4. Its not that important

Fine, I admit that i don't play a whole lot of fighting games, but let's not kid ourselves. we we all expecting a lot more from the story. I've played enough fighting games to know that they aren't well known for engaging story lines, but I wished they made the characters interact with each other a bit more. that's what makes the whole concept interesting, two worlds meeting, not to guys fighting cause some guy messed up my ice cream. As it stands now, fanfiction would do a better job at this.

Because people who make fighting games have pretty much given up on the single player. They just assume all fighting game fans wanna do is go online and play multiplayer. And the sad thing is, they're kinda right. Pretty much the reason why I don't go past Mortal Kombat for my fighting games these days.

It cant be like SSBB because dlc characters.

Some characters wouldnt have part in the story and they would look silly.

I think this is the reason Sony is releasing 2 character at once, Kat will interact with the other guy I think. (if you beat with one of them in arcade mode).

Y'know what? Katarina is my waifu <3

I should've clarified. I don't care about Story in fighting games, I never really did. When I said "Adventure mode", I meant like in Super Smash Bros. Melee where you go through levels/obstacles. Like in Melee how you start off in the Super Mario World and you get to attack goombas ! :)

EDIT: Like this
