Marvel’s Super Hero Squad

Marvel's Super Hero Squad Smash Bros

The DS version of Marvel’s Super Hero Squad was at one point planned as a Smash Bros.-style game before contractual obligations got in the way. That information comes from Luke Muscat, who worked on the project.

Developer Halfbrick was working with THQ, the game’s publisher, at the time. The title was initially intended to be a brawler, but THQ asked the team to pivot and make it more like Smash Bros. instead. Halfbrick seemed pretty excited about the idea, though had to throw out some previous work. Blocking, rolling, and dodging were all a part of the core gameplay.
