Dream Roster: Microsoft Smash-Up

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, Nintendo vs. Capcom and Konami-Smash.

Ever since Sony released their arguably dubious attempt at a Smash Bros. styled arena fighter, gamers have often wondered what Microsoft’s interpretation of such a game would look like. The idea has been kicked around by Phil Spencer himself, though it’s unlikely to ever happen, we can still dream about it!

Baring the character selection process in mind found in both Smash Bros. and PSABR, we selected a total of 24 characters from a range of Microsoft owned IPs and Xbox exclusives, as well as several relevant third party choices.


If you’d like to see the reasoning behind some of the character choices, be sure to read below!

  1. Dead Rising is far more important to the Xbox in my honest opinion. 3 out of 4 Main Series games were either exclusive or Timed Exclusive.

    Frank West is Capcom’s Microsoft equivalent to Mega Man (Nintendo) and Dante (Sony)

  2. Clippy seems like a shoo-in, even if just a joke character. he may not be an Xbox character, but he’s still a Microsoft character, and a pretty iconic one at that.
