Happy Wednesday Novas! I was reading a facebook post (I think) and the subject was video game merges. This is such an interesting topic to talk about that I wanted to have the conversation with you all! With the new details released about Kingdom Hearts 3, you know the Toy Story inclusion, I wanted to pose the question and see which video games you would like to see collaborate together! Licensing aside (because you know that’s why some of our dream mash-ups have not happened) what 2 or even 3 games would you love to merge?
The known crossovers of games like Mario Kart, Super Smash Brothers or even Killer Instinct merges characters from different games together and makes them a playable part of the game. Mario and Sonic was a pretty big crossover for me because it combined 2 of my childhood favorites, into 1 world where Sega meets Nintendo! Crossover games can give the gamer a boost of knowledge from games that they might not have experienced before. In the original Super Smash Brothers game, I was unaware that Zelda was a Princess and integral part of the series (don’t laugh, I’ve never played Zelda lol).
Fighting games are known for adding characters to their already vast selection. Remember when Marvel vs Capcom first debuted? Finally we could start merging the iconic Heroes and Villains from 2 different realms together (the same goes for Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe). Killer instinct went a step further and started adding on guest characters for other video game types all together (note General Raam from Gears of War and that frog guy from Battletoads). So why not take things a step further and express the games that you would like to see a crossover from?
My Crossover Games:
So Fable is a RPG game where you make decisions and usher your character through the story. How awesome would it be if when you went to battle the bosses, that a Pokemon Battle ensued? Maybe the Pokemon you can select are based on your abilities and traits (because you can customize your skills in new versions of Fable). If you decide to build a mage with a focus on ice, you could choose Pokemon like Squirtle, Ninetales, Dewgong, Articuno etc. That would be awesome! Maybe the Pokemon can follow you around as well.
Another game I would love to see is a simple combined fighting game. Let’s put Killer Instinct, Street Fighter, Dead or Alive, Tekken, Dragoball Z, Naruto, Mortal Kombat, etc all together in a brawl! I want large 5 person teams of fighters going at it! Think about it, the story can cross realms. Maybe have the gamer create a character and then you would need to cross through realms and fight the best of the best or even try to win a tournament.
What are some Video Game Crossovers you would like to see happen? Let’s talk Video Games!
