Whether it’s Mario and Sonic competing in the same game, or Ryu and Kazuya throwing down in a fighting game. Crossovers are a thrilling way to explore gameplay mechanics and see our favorite characters interact in new and interesting ways.
In this article, we’ll explore some video game crossovers that we think should exist. For your leisure, imagine what these epic mashups could look like.

Fire Emblem x Pokemon
I know that this idea is a little far-fetched but hear me out. Both the Fire Emblem and Pokemon franchises are currently Nintendo exclusives. Additionally, both share a little similarity in terms of combat (minus the moves).
Before rolling your eyes at this, imagine if our favorite Fire Emblem characters each had a partner Pokemon. In theory, the combat would work the same way it would on the original Fire Emblem mechanic. Instead of your characters fighting on their own, each of them has a Pokemon battling with them.
Another interesting mechanic of this mashup would be your Pokemon will evolve when you upgrade the character’s class. Moreover, the relationship between the character and their partner Pokemon will be interesting to see. Just imagine Marth having Aegislash as his partner, now that sounds awesome. It’s a little far-fetched, but I would buy this game in an instant.
Sonic the Hedgehog x Mega Man
Two classic platforming franchises could join forces. Its crossover combines the speed and agility of Sonic with the precision and strategic combat of Mega Man. Players could switch between the two characters to take on challenging levels and bosses in a retro-style adventure.
The Sonic x Mega Man crossover could revitalize the two franchises with a rich history. Additionally, it would be fun if they developed it in a retro-style game. This would give their loyal fans an epic mashup that pays homage to its roots. I would love to see this game in a classic Mega Man type of game.
Successful Video Game Crossovers
