Welcome to another Dream Roster article. If you missed out on our previous entries, be sure to check out the articles looking at Nintendo Kart, as well as MvC4, Kellogg’s vs. Capcom, Fire Emblem Warriors, Disney X Mario Kart and Konami-Smash.
We’ve done quite a few of these Dream Roster articles now, and every time we tease one on social media we always get a ton of requests to do one for Nintendo vs. Capcom. It must come with the territory, after all we are Smash Bros. fans.
Nintendo and Capcom have had a fairly intimate history, dozens upon dozens of Capcom games have seen the light of day on Nintendo systems. This includes games from top Capcom franchises such as Resident Evil, Street Fighter, Mega Man, Dead Rising and Monster Hunter. Hell, at this point Monster Hunter is a Nintendo exclusive (at least it has been for the past 5 games)!
Yoshinori Ono himself has stated that he would love for Nintendo vs. Capcom to one day be a reality. We envisioned a game that operated more like a traditional Capcom vs. fighting game to help differentiate it from the likes of Smash Bros., a 3vs3 format like Marvel vs. Capcom 2 and 3. Finally, we chose a roster totalling 36 characters with those perimeters in mind.
What might that roster look like? Don’t worry, we here at Source Gaming have got you covered.
If you’d like to see the reasoning behind some of the character choices, be sure to read below!
