What if: Fighting Megamix 2?
« on: January 09, 2019, 12:40:12 pm »
A "What if?" thread. As in nothing official, just proposal of an idea thats perhaps unlikely to happen.

Let's say that Sega wanted to compete with the Smash series but at the same time do not want to appear to rip them off. (kinda like what happened to Sonic Shuffle < Mario Party 3)
What if instead of a platform fighting game instead it's more of a Tekken/SoulCalibur-like fighting game instead? Thus the idea All-Stars Fighters Megamix 2.
Fighters Megamix was a Sega Saturn fighting game that was a crossover of fighters from Virtua Fighters 2 and Fighting Vipers. However fighters from other Sega games also debuted such as Bark and Bean from Sonic the Fighters, Janet Marshall from Virtua Cop 2, Taro Yamada from Rent-A-Hero and even Hornet, the fighting race car from Daytona USA (as well as a bunch of other crazy mascot characters like a mexican green bean, a palm tree  and japanese bone of meatas a fighter.
So in a sense, Fighters Megamix was the first Sega crossover game that predates both the Super Smash series and the Sega Superstars series.
So how would you feel if Sega made a sequal to Fighters Megamix as a sequal to the Sega All-Stars series of games? I can imagie brand new fighters for the game also:
  • Almost everyone from Sonic the Fighters
        The eingine from Sonic the Fighters would be ideal for "small-but-quick" fighters. Sonic characters can properly debute but with their modern apperance.
  • Alex Kidd
        Uses the same engine as Sonic the Fighters due to his small size.
  • Gilius Thunderhead
        A standard fighter who uses the same fighting style as Gilius Rockhead from Golden Axe: The Duel.
  • Chariot
        Using Fighting Vipers engine given he is an armoured fighter. Rerpesenting The House of the Dead franchise.
Or if Sega did wanted to compete with the Smash series without ripping them off, perhaps riding on Fighters Megamix older reputation would be considered a sleazy tactic? While Fighters Megamix is older than Super Smash Bros., there has only been the one Fighters Megamix game.
