"Super Smash Bros 4" is only being released for the Wii U and 3DS later this year. According to a report from Kotaku on Aug. 1, however, PS3 and Xbox 360 players will be able to get another game from the same arena fighting genre. "Digimon All-Star Rumble," which is being published by Bandai Namco Games, is slated to come out for the two current-generation consoles later this fall.

Similar to "Super Smash Bros 4," the PS3 and Xbox 360 game lets up to four players battle it out in stages filled with environmental hazards. "Digimon All-Star Rumble" also introduced some unique twists, one of which is the 3D plane as the fighters won't be restricted to 2D. Furthermore, the participants have the ability to "Digivolve" as they can transform during the middle of matches.

A dozen base characters can be selected in "Digimon All-Star Rumble." Up to 32 transformations can be used as well. The roster includes creatures that originated from the animated series, starting from "Digimon Adventure" and ending with "Digimon Fusion." The arena fighting game will be released in North America on Nov. 11.

"Super Smash Bros 4" for Wii U is also coming out at around the same time. Nintendo has not yet confirmed the official release date for the sequel to the popular series. However, the company expects that it should be coming out sometime during the winter season in 2014. The 3DS version has a launch date planned for Oct. 3 in multiple regions.

The development of "Super Smash Bros 4" for Wii U is being handled by Sora with help from the aforementioned Bandai Namco Games. It appears that the third-party company is going to have a busy rest of the year with the releases of the two projects from the same genre.
