Ono: Nintendo x Capcom? Ask Sakurai!

Ono: Nintendo x Capcom? Ask Sakurai! on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

Capcom's Yoshinori Ono has confirmed interest in a Nintendo x Capcom fighter. At the Nintendo 3DS conference in Amsterdam yesterday, Cubed3 attended Ono-san's roundtable session and managed to ask the key question: "Considering you are trying to make Street Fighter IV 3DS accessible to a wider audience, did you ever think about including Nintendo characters to broaden the appeal?"

Rather than brushing the question off completely, instead Ono-san reacted very positively, saying he would like to make a Nintendo x Capcom fighting game and that the idea should be pitched to Nintendo of Japan and Masahiro Sakurai.

Would you like to see Nintendo x Capcom become a reality?

A full Nintendo x Capcom game, should it happen, would have to be either developed by Nintendo themselves or highly supervised by them, as I doubt they'd let a third party develop a game where their characters would take central stage while not being highly accessible for the casual players. And Street Fighter is nowhere near as accessible as Super Smash Bros for me. One shouldn't mistake depth of gameplay and accessibility, and Super Smash Bros has both.

I know we had Link in Soulcalibur 2, and soon Ridley and Samus in DoAD, but those were just one or two character as opposed to a full cast of those.

Lol Mario gets hadukened, although his fireballs are roughly the same thing (program wise)

OMG this would truly be epic. This has to be made!

That would be awesome in theory, but not sure how it would work given both Capcom (Street Fighter, VS series) and Nintendo (Smash Bros) are from two different fighting systems.

Would like a new Smash Bros with Capcom characters though, but would be weird seeing how they pull of Street Fighter folk with Smash-style moves/control - that or a Tasunuko styled Nintendo vs Capcom game Smilie

Well, Link worked fine in Soul Calibur 2 though he was the only character in the game with ranged attacks which made him completely imbalanced. Smilie

I could see both types happening, Capcom characters in a Super Smash Bros. like game or Nintendo characters in a Street Fighter like game.

Now that we're talking about this, where is my Smash Bros. for the 3DS, Nintendo? Smilie

yes but on wii/3ds only and have a roster of at least 40 on each side with 20 arenas ect wow in graphics using MT framework or a nintendo game engine it would be the best fighter of all time make it cross network with wii and 3ds so 3ds can pla online againsrt wii gamers ect plus 2 platforms equals bigger budgets better graphics better game overall

That's asking a lot don't you think, but I'm totally for those ideas. Smilie

If this were to ever happen, I'd prefer them to make the game on Vs. engine. Damn near every character they put on that engine come out looking sick. The Nintendo characters would be amazing in a Vs. game! Oh please, oh please, OH PLEASE!!!

@jb: Well, they're doing a Tekken X CAPCOM and CAPCOM X Tekken, each in the style of the corresponding franchise so it's not as crazy as it sounds. Do one with Smash Bros style and another with Street Fighter in mind and it should be an interesting way of parting with our money.

Make lesser known Nintendo characters into strikers in a Nintendo vs Capcom game Smilie. I could see Kyle Hyde, Jeff from Earthbound, Captain Rainbow/Nick, Doc Louis, Tarin & Marin... the possibilities are nearly endless ^^.

We already have Super Smash Bros, which is good by itself. I'd prefer seeing Capcom use the Vs. engine if there was a crossover, since the Wii doesn't see too many of those types of fighting games.

When I asked the question, I *had* actually meant a Nintendo x Capcom game in a Street Fighter / Vs. style, but had to word the question slightly differently since we were meant to only ask questions directly related to the game's being talked about Smilie

2.5D side-on battler with Capcom and Nintendo characters would be awesome Smilie

You realize that isn't possible, right?

Anyway, this would be an interesting experience. At the very least, let it be a foot in the door toward putting Leon Kennedy in the next Super Smash Bros. Smilie

more shit?
no thanks

Vigilante (guest) 21.01.2011 08:55#16

I can't say I trust Sakurai anymore after his blunder with Brawl, but Capcom wouldn't make it too casual. It could be interesting.

Cube (guest) 21.01.2011 08:55#17

As long as Sakurai's not involved.

Incom from SWF (guest) 21.01.2011 08:55#18

So now Ryu can fight Mario?... maybe we'll see Ken fight Marth Smilie

LC-DDM (guest) 21.01.2011 08:55#19

I know at least a couple of obvious choices for the fighting department -- Little Mac & Sukapon.

Though we could always go with Captain Falcon (!) and Sheik as well.

bearmon2010 (guest) 21.01.2011 14:40#20

Not interesting but thanks for reconsidering it. No thanks.

I see where you're coming from with that argument-- but you're overlooking quite a bit. Nintendo has done entire cast crossovers at well. You seem to be forgetting Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games, for one thing (which was Sega-developed, BTW). The the Mario cast was also featured in an EA basketball game back on GameCube. Right there, that's two separate games that were third-party-developed featuring a whole cast of some Nintendo's best known characters. Nintendo definitely would allow it under the right circumstances.

Really Cubed3.....do you even need to ask if we would want such a perfect game?

It is not wise to speak on subjects you do not know all facts about, nor is it smart to judge a game based on looks alone. PSN: Nintendo_Gamer 3DS: 4296-3029-7422

It honestly could end up being the most amazing game ever guys. If Sakurai just TRIES as hard on this one as he did on melee, plus capcom's help, it would make for an amazing game!

I think that Sakurai would do a GREAT job with this, if and ONLY if, he works on it as hard as he worked on melee. With that in mind, Sakurai and Ono would be able to do an excelent game, in my opinion.

Anon (guest) 22.01.2011 10:20#25

I can see it now:

Mario/Ryu vs. Bowser/Sagat
Zelda/Chunli vs. Ganondorf/Bison
Ike/Zero vs. Black Knight/Sigma
Kirby/Megaman vs. Dedede/Wily

Seriously, has Ono been reading my fanfiction?
