It's great that it's still officially going forward (I wanna play it, even though I suck at fighting games), but it's a significant setback, since all that animation takes quite some time to do.

That's freaking AWESOME I can't wait for it too be finished!
When I had heard that they stopped the making of it I was so sad but now this just made my day!

Sad to see Hasbro isn't budging, but a lot of respect for Faust going out of their way to support the community in what ways it can.

If you can't have specific ponies, what else works? MORE PONIES.

bluexy - To be fair, they literally HAVE to C&D it though. They need to protect their properties. The characters in particular, lest they lose the rights to the characters by not enforcing copyright (or trademark? I keep getting those mixed up) laws.

Non-specific ponies are another matter, they're just inspired by the world and its inhabitants, not something trademarked(?) by Hasbro.

from all the things that this creepy manbaby fandom came up with i think this game truly is one of the rare exceptions that can be qualified as pure awesomeness.

i actually gone and tried this game and i mentioned once before i'm not really charmed by the online mlp fanbase for their out of place role playing and the flame wars they always have something to do with.

maybe this game has something? let's see where this will go.

The mane 6 won't ever be part of the roster (nor will any other character made by Hasbro), unless they lose their business sense and acquire the game themselves, which they won't do because it is bad for their main image (A game inspired by a series targeted mainly at young girls? The theme of the series is the magic of friendship (especially between the main characters)? And the main characters are beating eachother up?).

Yeah, objectively the mane 6 will never end up in the game now. Hasbro has to protect its IP, so it can't just let people use them in a polished game (even a free one), and they can't acquire the game because it sends the wrong message to its main demographic.

It might have managed to be completed, the project and released into the wild with all the main characters before the C&D came, except the game was thrown into the spotlight because of that fighting game tournament.

Shadow of Death Well yeah, I was just being nice. It's there own property, and they have it's rights. BUT think if they did allow it? RainbowDash vs. Scootaloo?
