I remember dreaming up improbable video game crossovers with my schoolyard friends. While none of our strokes of genius have been specifically catered to, I must have left our childhood sketchbooks at an industry event or something, because suddenly bizarre, wishful-thinking collaborations are completely reasonable. A full-on Pokemon fighting game
with talent from the Tekken and Soul Calibur series? A narrative-driven take
on the Borderlands series from Telltale? A mashup
of Fire Emblem and Shin Megami Tensei?
Now that improbable is the new possible, we might as well exchange our most-wanted team-ups in a public thread, just in case someone with a lot of money is bored enough to make exactly one of us incredibly happy. Personally, I would love to see Sin and Punishment 2
developer Treasure work with Nintendo on a spiritual successor to Star Fox 64
. I think the on-rails arcade shooter style suits that series best, and I think Treasure's experience with the Sin & Punishment series would perfectly lend itself to what I'm looking for from Fox McCloud's adventures: A clever, blissfully-frantic shooter that's as fun to conquer the first time as it is the 50th.
That's just my request, though; what are you wishing for? Feel free to focus on video game series or just two particular development teams – the important thing is telling us about your dream project so we can join in on yearning for what might never happen.
