Video game developers have always been partial to a bit of fan service, whether it's a hard to find easter egg or cheeky reference to another franchise, but nothing sends fans hearts aflutter than a crossover game. The meeting of two franchises in one game. Recently we've heard that Nintendo will be treating to a new game in this vein:Shin Megani vs. Fire Emblem; now they're not exactly the most well known franchises in the video game world but it's something and I'm sure the fans of both games will be mighty happy.
Indeed Satoru Iwata has recently said that collaborating with outside developers will strengthen Nintendo's line up so what could be next? Here are some crossovers that I'd like to play.
Pokemon x Monster Hunter
A match made in gaming heaven in my mind. Imagine, running around the fields of Kanto, swatting away Butterfrees and coming face to face with a Charizard. What do you do? Reach for your Pokeball? no, you reach for your switch axe and pummel that flying behemoth until it lies dead in the ground, inviting you to carve its wings off and wear them as macabre armour. You could even have a little Pikachu following you around, acting as a comrade and helping you beat the living daylights out of those barbarous beasts. No more fainting, these Pokemon will be thoroughly dead. Especially those Zubats. I would kill every last one of them.
