Super Smash Brothers The Animated Series is a forum game that various tropers are playing by continuing the stories from the previous posts within the episodes.
It is based off of Super Smash Bros. as you already know, but the series consists of the various Nintendo heroes (and Third Party Characters) fighting against the forces of Tabuu and his Subspace Emissary. After Tabuu broke free from the confines of Subspace, he hatches a new scheme to end the Smash Brothers World as we know it. As more heroes unite, the danger keeps growing. Will our heroes foil Tabuu's sinister scheme?
The animation studios (if this existed) is helmed by DreamWorks Animation with a Per Episode Budget of 4 Million Dollars for each half hour of action. The show would also be syndicated for Prime Time by various networks, as the promo is aimed at TV Station Owners who are looking to find new material for their prime time block with lots of superlatives and use of the words Smash and Smashing.
