A remake is taking the general plot beats of an older work and trying to bring it up to the modern day.actually it’s a very poorly defined term and some argue it’s the same as a remake
A reboot is only having the names and setting of an older work but everything else is different.
Going back to an earlier conversation from this thread for a second, that really bothered me when people called the PS4 Sakura wars game a reboot just because one of the girls in the game shared the name Sakura with an older character, the plot of the game is very clearly a sequel since it picks up 12 years after the fifth game (5 takes place in 1928 while 6 takes place in 1940)
Sorry that has nothing to do with smash but i really wanted to get it off my chest somewhere.
