The original Tweet posted by Jolly J, features artwork from the SEGA/Capcom crossover comic book series published by Archie Comics in 2015. The comic series featured Sonic the Hedgehog and Mega Man as its stars. Then, in the Worlds Unite storyline, a multitude of additional SEGA- and Capcom-owned characters entered the fray.
Jolly J points out that fans have wanted this crossover for many years, and we still haven’t gotten it. In the same thread, J adds that with the number of crossover comics, in addition to video game crossovers with Marvel, there’s no reason why there isn’t a SEGA vs. Capcom game. In the past, Capcom characters battled it out with heroes and villains of Marvel, Tatsunoko, Tekken and SNK.
We got all these crossover comics and all these crossovers Capcom been doing with Marvel and everyone else, and they ain’t think once about a SEGA crossover?Jolly J
Seeing the thread, Ed Boon responded, “Somebody MAKE IT SO!” Boon’s post also started a chain of responses echoing his sentiment. However, other comments turned the tables, asking Boon why we don’t have Mortal Kombat vs. Street Fighter. And to be fair, that’s another fighting game crossover everyone wants to see.
Could SEGA vs. Capcom work?
Still, gamers also really do want to see SEGA and Capcom duke it out in a game. Therefore, based on fan outcry, there’s real potential that a SEGA vs. Capcom game could sell very well. With Capcom’s long history of fighting games like the Street Fighter series, and SEGA’s Virtua Fighter franchise, the collaboration has all the makings to be something special.
