It’s what I would call a party brawler and where Smash can be played competitively I do not think you will find anyone going to bat for a ranked mode in Power Stone.
It’s a really good game to have out at a party because it’s flashy, it’s very easy to learn, it’s over the top, and it’s just kind of a hey we’re going to just chat while smashing buttons. And where as with Smash you’ll get that one person inevitably who is actually decent and wants others to know no one is actually mastering Power Stone because there’s nothing to really master. If you turned off items and the big flashy Power Stone moves/transformations it’s no longer Power Stone.
Basically it’s the game I would like to play right now on a Friday night discord call.
