Earlier this week, we unveiled some of the nitty-gritty details of Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite’s system and characters. The crossover between the two universes is one of the most enduring in gaming, but in my opinion, crossovers don’t happen often enough. So: What gaming crossover would like to see happen?
Being a fighting game fan, I’d still flip my lid if Capcom and Warner Bros. ever announced a Street Fighter Vs. Mortal Kombat game. These are the two series in fighting games, and to see Ryu and Scorpion go at it would be a dream come true. A lot of hang-ups make this hard to imagine: How would they deal with the level of violence in Mortal Kombat, which seems core to one series but antithetical to the other? Would it be Capcom or Netherrealm at the helm, since both are skilled fighting game studios? Would it be two crossover games like Capcom Vs. SNK/ SVC Chaos and Street Fighter X Tekken / Tekken X Street Fighter, even though those partnerships end up doing poorly for at least one (or both) companies involved? Despite the hurdles, I’d still like to see it happen someday.
So what gaming characters would like to see meet each other? Fancy a Mario Vs. Yooka-Laylee at the Olympic Games? A heartfelt story bringing together Joel from The Last of Us and Nathan Drake from Uncharted? Valve Vs. The Number 3? Let us know in the comments.
