Ono wants to pitch Nintendo X Capcom fighter

Posted by Jonathan 'Catalyst' Grey • January 20, 2011 at 3:21 p.m. PST
Ono wants to pitch Nintendo X Capcom fighter This would be pretty much a no-brainer for Capcom, as doing a cross over fighting game with Nintendo would likely be a gigantic success for them, but there's a short story up on Cubed3.com stating:

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.

Assuming this title was green-lit, there's a strong chance it would follow past cross over games with both Nintendo and Capcom making their own game with each others' characters.

Tip from Mightychir and Mario_Brawler.

Smash x Capcom would make my head explode.

Wow, I wonder how this would work? is it gonna be more of a kiddie style fighter (like SSBM) or more of a street fighter style fighter geared towards more mature fighting fans.. This is a news that I really wanna keep my eye on for sure.

J said on January 20, 2011 at 3:28 p.m.

God no. I love Capcom and I love Nintendo, but I don't want to see it mix. I'd much rather have a Capcom vs. SNK 3.

If it did happen, Capcom would probably make their version more competitive and Nintendo would make theirs more casual. Everybody wins!

Dragoomba said on January 20, 2011 at 3:31 p.m.

NO SMASH. Let Capcom take care of it. Let them be in charge of all Nintendo's characters movesets and everything, sorta like MVC. It would be so GODLIKE.

#8
Mit said on January 20, 2011 at 3:31 p.m.

Needs to be a 4 player game like Smash Bros still, but with combos.

And that's really all they would agree to do. I absolutely cannot see Nintendo letting Capcom make their own version using Nintendo's characters without some very, very direct supervision.

And really this is just not gonna happen because the only person they'll let touch Smash Bros is Sakurai, and Sakurai probably isn't going to move to another Smash game after Kid Icarus. Finally finishing his stupidass 10-years-in-the-making console Kirby game would probably come first.

Or just something else. He doesn't seem like he wants to be shoehorned into making Smash Bros his entire career.

DrOoo said on January 20, 2011 at 3:32 p.m.

Now consider that the game would only be released for the Wii and we have a whole new level of disappointment. There is no way N is licensing characters for other platforms. I know Link made an appearance on Soul Calibur but I'm sure it's not going to fly with that many characters.

make it for the 3ds so we can have portable smash finally. They could hook a players 3Ds to the main screen at EVO.

Thanks.

powderedtoastman said on January 20, 2011 at 3:37 p.m.

As someone else mentioned CAN WE GET Cvs3 or atleast cvs2 with some proper netplay.

Granted i can see how the nintendo characters fitting into the capcom setting with controls similar to mvc3 and tvc. Then all the jerks in the smash bros series could just have most of there moves imported with mechanics changed. They already have ground chains and launcher like moves, along with light medium and heavy attacks. But please no, dont mix the 2 together.

#14
J said on January 20, 2011 at 3:37 p.m.

Forget what I said earlier, I'd like to see a new Darkstalkers or Rival Schools/Project Justice game made before this. (Although CvS3 would still be nice)

#15
mrdrofficer said on January 20, 2011 at 3:38 p.m.

Make it have iphone sf controls with dashing and push block. Done.

#16
Brosephski said on January 20, 2011 at 3:38 p.m.

I for one would believe the game would be hype as hell, just to see Smashers jump on board and get wrecked. And hey, maybe they'd be able to prove they could play as well as SF/Versus Series vets as well. Just seeing the two communities clash would make events like EVO very interesting.

But I'm not a fan of so many versus series games coming out. We have MvC3, and it looks great. It'd be nice to see it last a while, but we're almost definitely getting SF X Tekken the following year. Then what? Nintendo X Capcom a year later?

Capcom said a while back that they're trying to push out more major releases, but this is getting to be fighting game overload. I'd say its almost getting to Madden/CoD levels of saturation, but the fighting games (SFIV, Tatsunoko, MvC3, etc.) at least seem to play differently, have different aesthetic styles, and feel a lot more unique overall than the former examples.

With that said, I would like to see the mash up, and I have a feeling it would turn out well.

Samus vs Mega Man X
Mr. Resetti vs Phoenix Wright
Wolf Link vs Amaterasu
Pokemon Trainer vs Monster Hunter
Mario and Luigi vs Ryu and Ken
Wario vs Rufus
Peach vs Chun li

I can see this being very entertaining.

RA_MO said on January 20, 2011 at 3:50 p.m.

True Link was in Soul Calibur II, but it was on the gamecube version so it was still nintendo proof in a way. So chances are this would most likely be a Wii title unless this is nintendo's way of saying they are finally ready to let other consoles get of hold of some of their titles... Still unlikely but hey, Sonic is now on every console... and 2D fighters meet 3D fighters with SF X TK , TK X SF.

#37
SnakeX said on January 20, 2011 at 4:12 p.m.

@28

Sonic is on every console now because Sega no longer makes its own consoles, since they're not financially capable to do so any more...So that's kind of a bad example.
Nintendo will never stop making their own consoles and putting their trademark products only on those consoles, because their products sell like hotcakes and practically print money themselves. If this crossover game ever happens, it will be a Nintendo console exclusive.

Anyway, I think Capcom is better off just putting one or two of their trademark characters (Megaman and/or Ryu, for example) into the next Smash Bros like Sega did with Sonic and Konami did with Solid Snake. A full blown crossover game isn't necessary in this case.
Like it's already been mentioned, they're far better off doing another Capcom vs SNK, Darkstalkers 4, or some other company crossover that they can pimp out on multiple platforms as opposed to just one.

If someone could take something as good as Melee and make it better, or at least as good, I'd trust Capcom to do it. Nothing Brawl-like though.

A traditional fighter would be fine too, though I'd prefer a different series done in that case.

xShonuffx said on January 20, 2011 at 4:54 p.m.

Just chiming in on some thought here.

For you CvS fans. Getting CvS3 is difficult because of legal reasons, Not impossible but don't think it's gonna be as easy a lets say namco x capcom 2. Also note that he said Nintendo X Capcom meaning it would not revolve around just Street Fighter but Capcom and Nintendo characters. It also probably won't be a fighting game, it could be something esle.

So you might see characters like Megaman, Authur, Amatarasu, Viewtiful Joe, with Nintendo characters. Similar to Marvel vs. capcom but less focused on actual fighters.

My feelings on it? I don't care, a lot of you are taking this way to heart. I say if they can do it, go for it. Same attitude I have with SFxT TxSF.

Just bring Marvel vs. Capcom 3 out already.

#53
RandomJohn said on January 20, 2011 at 4:54 p.m.

If this is ever going to happen, I'm putting my money on another Super Smash Bro type game. Nintendo is aimed towards small kids and teens (hence the lack of rated M games) I doubt they're going to make a traditional Capcom 2D fighter.

On another note, if Ono is looking into another fighter for Nintendo, maybe he should buy the rights of Killer Instint (from Rare or whoever owns it now) and remake it haha. I loved that game. It was actually my first fighting game.

No matter how hard people try to make Smash sound like a very complex and deep game, it's still more a party game than a fighting game. If you think that all of the sudden Nintendo's gonna throw all that out the window and make the most complex and competitive fighting game ever, then the only retarded people here is you.

@Gameplan

1. "Fighting game is a video game genre where the player controls an on-screen character and engages in close combat with an opponent. These characters tend to be of equal power and fight matches consisting of several rounds, which take place in an arena. Players must master techniques such as blocking, counter-attacking, and chaining together sequences of attacks known as "combos"."

Smash is a fighting game. Just not a traditional one. Deal with it.

2. Just because Nintendo is involved does not automatically mean that the game would be Smash Bros-style.

3. This game is purely hypothetical, and may not even be in production. For now it is just an idea. Stop getting so worked up about something that doesn't even exist yet.

#72
corybell said on January 20, 2011 at 5:42 p.m.

I'm just going to assume that if they ever DID make a Nintendo/Capcom crossover, it'll just be a party game filled with mini-games, like Mario Party. They never did say that they wanted to make a FIGHTING game, though it does make me think since they asked Ono...

naters said on January 20, 2011 at 5:52 p.m.

dang i didnt know there were so many nintendo haters out there lol why is that aha??? and even though i love my nintendo very very much i cant see this happening one bit nintendo characters are too goofy and capcom characters are pretty serious, i just dont think it could be put together very well. like serious mario vs ryu!! Ryu would destroy mario own his butt ina heartbeat lol. and besides i dont think that the game play style would work. i mean only recently did theser nintendo characters get super moves and even then it was only one super move and some of them were copies of each other.. if anything nintendo needs just to come out with a new system that is on par with the ps4 and xbox 720 if and whenever they come out, and make an even better smash bros before they even consider thinking of mashing it up with the awesome capcom franchise it just wont work.

jupiter said on January 20, 2011 at 5:59 p.m.

wouldn't Capcom x Nintendo imply 2 versions with the other being Nintendo x Capcom?

I think that would be so much hype!! Ever since Brawl left a bitter nasty taste in my mouth, some buddies and I had a conversation back then of how amazing it would be if Capcom stepped in and made Brawl instead, adding Mega Man and creating a legit Smash game (keeping the concept the same, just changing the mechanics and physics a bit, removing tripping, balancing out the characters, adding depth and techniques).

Smash already had "focus attacks" and dodging/rolling, and all the ingredients necessary for a successful fighter. Sakurai just disregarded the competitive aspect of it all.

Sakurai needs to stay out of it. I've been playing Street Fighter since I saw Chun Li do her cool-as-f*** Spinning Bird Kick in Street Fighter II World Warriors at local liquor stores here in SoCal when I was in 2nd grade. Sakurai would take away everything that makes a fighting game worthy.

Sakurai didn't know what he was giving us when he made Melée. And after seeing what fans wanted and how quick and technical Melée was and how we wanted similar depth in Brawl, he farted in our faces with a trollish smile.

When asked about the competitive aspect of fighting games, Sakurai replied with a connotative example of feeling bad for the loser in a baseball game saying, "I would want both teams to win."

So, he threw in tripping, pity Smash Attacks, automatic ledge grabs, and Meta Knight. Sakurai is in no position to create a solid fighting game, so let him make Nintendo X Capcom, that's fine. But Capcom's "Capcom x Nintendo" better be a-f***ing-mazing, because this idea has so much potential!

yeah, ok, it will be on the Wii and the 3DS, but hey, aside from how rudely Sakurai spat on Smash, the visuals and physics of the game were BEAUTIFUL! I still think it's one of the best games on the Wii (visually, at the very least) that shows off its graphics and capabilities to a degree.

Adding in Capcom fighters and Capcom's touch would be sheer brilliance. End of story.

@SnakeX

I mean sonic could have just died out like many other mascots in the past but because they wanted to stay in the game, they sold out so to say to be on many other consoles. So I think in a way the example is decently valid. But I guess none of it matters too much to me. Just waiting to see where the gaming currents take me.

#80
Gameplan said on January 20, 2011 at 6:01 p.m.

@FroggyMan77

I'm not saying Smash isn't a fighting game by definition, I'm saying it's more a party game than a fighting game. Look up the definition of party game to see what I mean. Besides Nintendo has never cared about fighting games or competitive games for that matter, so I don't expect anything more than another party game disguised as fighting game from them. Don't get me wrong, I like Nintendo games in general, just not their "fighting games".

And I'm not worked up about anything, I'm just saying that if this idea ever gets made Capcom would be better off spending those resources on other projects that many of us fighting game fans have been waiting for, like CvS3, a new Darkstalkers or Rival Schools, etc. But that's just my opinion, feel free to disagree with it.

I dont think its that they are nintendo haters, its moreso the fact that most "serious" fighting game fans dont see super smash bros as a serious fighter.

They also dont see the wii as a "serious" fighting game machine. So therefore the fighting game community would do the exact same thing to this title that they did to tatsunoko vs capcom, they would let a good game rot in hell because its on nintendos system.

The basic fact here is that if they both decided to develop their own games or if they decided to create one big game, it would be on nintendos sytem hands down, and "serious" fighting game fans have a probelm with that for some reason, and would boycot the game just like TVC.

Hell, capcom could put Tekken x capcom exclusive on the Wii, and instntly the game would be boycotted in the hardcore community, even if its the best fighting game ever.

@Gameplan

"Party games are video games developed specifically for multiplayer games between many players. Normally, party games have a variety of mini-games that range between collecting more of a certain item than other players or having the fastest time at something. Such games include the Mario Party series, Crash Boom Bang!, and Rayman Raving Rabbids. Versus multiplayer games are not generally considered to be party games."

Please consider the last sentence in particular. Now sure, Smash can be played at parties, or any other event where a bunch of friends just want to get together and have a good time, but so can any other game.

You're more than welcome to have the opinion that you would rather see such-and-such other game, but here's something to keep in mind: not all of Capcom's fanbase is made of hardcore fighting game players. That's definitely a minority. But a Nintendo/Capcom crossover would be more attractive to a wider range of players than a Darkstalkers 4 or CvS3. And there's no reason why said crossover couldn't appeal to both sides; Melee sure proved that was possible.

@MALDA

Please. The Capcom fanboy in you would just eat this game up. Don't deny it.

Not necessarily SSB style, but look at Mariokart, Marioparty, any other competitive Nintendo game has way, way too many dicerolls and random advantages or pitfalls to create artificial excitement.

@#86 Gameplan

But thats the problem, capcom HAS been giving us eveything we want as fighting game fans plus the fighting game community in general is getting alot of love. MCV3, SSF4/AE, new MK, Tekken Tag 2, Capcom X Tekken, and ive even heard that Tekken 7 was confirmed. (may be a rumor) and there probalby are alot of other 2D games im missing....

Capcom may want to do something diffrent and capcom KNOWS that if they go in headfirst with that idea, it would make millions, hardcore game or not.

Capcom is still a development company looking to make a profit, and noone does that better than nintendo and capcom wants a peice of that....(I read a report that said nintendo has made enough profit off the wii to last for decades......)

@Firegod

Just wanted to say that in the case of TvC (and I think I speak for the majority of fighting game fans out there) the problem was that a single great fighting game just doesn't justify buying a new console AND a new stick, period. I'd have loved to play TvC more but it simply didn't justify buying a Wii just for that. Not to mention Wii's online play is crappier and scarcer than in any other console (another proof that Nintendo doesn't care about competitive games).
