View Full Version : Nintendo + Sega

In the past, these two were neck and neck bitter rivals.. and nowadays they've buried the hatchet, shoke hands, and now work for each other..
This thread is to tell you guys my hope for them to make more games together, which started with the truly excellent F-Zero for Gamecube and continues now with Mario Kart arcade..
I'm wondering what they'll do next! I'd sure love to see the next Super Smash Bros. with a cameo of Sonic in there hehe
Mario and Luigi vs Sonic and Knuckles (tails I dont like), who will beat the crap out of the other?!?
Yea anyways I am somewhat disappointed that I haven't seen more joint games between the two lately..

Haha! They way things are looking right now, Nintendo may end up in the exact same shoes as Sega soon enough (i.e. out of the hardware biz)! But it's really too early to say. Anyway, I agree that it's nice to see Sega and Nintendo working cooperatively these days. Until recently I've been very disappointed with Sega's software products since the demise of the Dreamcast. Now it finally looks like they are starting to do a little more than produce "classic" compilations or sequels to existing series. Hopefully, Sega's and Nintendo's new relationship will spark new creativity in BOTH camps--something that's sorely lacking these days! But PLEASE come up with some NEW FRANCHISES, for Pete's sake! Enough already with Mario and Sonic! Sony doesn't even HAVE a mascot and they are dominating the home console market! Get with the new millenium guys...

Whaddaya mean Sony doesn't have mascots? Have you forgotten Sweet Tooth? That character and Twisted Metal has been one of the big sellers on the PS.. Dont forget Crash Bandicoot either.. (Yes I know he's on the GBA as well)

Neither of those stuck and neither of those ever had the household recognition of a Mario, Sonic, or Pac-Man. Don't get me wrong, I'm a huge Crash Bandicoot addict. Crash was somewhat popular because of all the commercials, but he's no longer a Sony brand. Sweet Tooth was cool, but I don't know anyone outside of the gaming community would have been able to name him. Anyway, don't get me wrong--I'm not trying to put down Sony's mascots. They simply don't fall into the same catagory. My point is that the PS2 didn't depend on mascots in order to succeed. It's the GAMES, Baby!

Well I don't see Sega joining up with Nintendo because they have already done so with a company called Sammy, responable for the likes of Gulty Gear and a few other "modern classic" games.

I don't think he means that they're going to merge. He's just refering to the fact that Sega is publishing games for Nintendo's consoles for the first time since the 80s.

It's great to see Sega producing games still. There is no doubt they make some sensational games and to see them on Nintendo hardware is even better. But the best thing is the collaborative efforts we have seen as mentioned above. Sony mascots....no such thing. Crash is a Naughty Dog mascot jumped on by Sony but he was funny. Does anyone remeber the pictures of Crash being dragged away by security at the Nintendo offices in Osaka?
