In an effort to dominate the world market, several top video game companies have merged with the plan to create a hybrid mascot composed of elements of each company's most treasured icons. The result will be a Frankenstein-like character that will share attributes of some of the most famous gaming mascots in the world.
Nintendo, Sega, Sony, and Midway are putting their collective heads together, along with some other virtual body parts, and have created a new iconic mascot composed from parts of Mario, Sonic, Crash Bandicoot, and Pac-Man. The resulting character has been named Marionic Cootman. A new video game starring the recently created character is being developed and should be available this summer.
