Are Crossovers Over?

Gi - Amongst the games announced during the May Nintendo Direct was a new installment for a growing franchise, which was once thought of as incredibly unlikely collaboration. That game is a tie-in for the Sochi Olympic Winter Games featuring Mario& Sonic. This will be the fourth ‘Mario & Sonic’ branded game in the series. This offshoot sports-sim series featuring the familiar mascots may seem more like a casual cash-in title, but the ‘dream events’, which mash-up both property’s universes, introduce new gameplay experiences and makes the series its own unique animal.

I wish there were more crossovers like kingdom Hearts. KH took a big chance mixing Disney and Final Fantasy elements. Those 2 put together sounds crazy but it turned out to be gold. Kingdom Hearts is probably the best example of a crossover.

besides kingdom hearts and fighting games, i cant think of many crossovers that dont suck,and they shouldnt but the reason they do suck is because they become shameless cash-ins instead of a true game,like heroes on the move people wanted a game like that for years but it was a ps move only minigame,same thing with mario and sonic olympics crap everybody wants a real platformer crossover not a sports minigame,or even if it is a platformer like the crash purple and spyro orange games it drops the ball.

With Nintendo no, they will stick around. However everyone else has lost mascots for "realistic" human games. We don't see creative characters anymore, and the characters everyone makes are so basic that its kinda pointless to do it.

I mean look at PS All Stars. They did a good job, but overall how many people have guns? It's not entertaining to see human characters vs human characters, however mascots, cartoon characters, fantasy characters etc are awesome.

So in my opinion, crossovers are not dead, creativity for the characters needed to do it is.

No not over it just takes awhile for pubs or devs to collab well if you look outside of console there are tons of crossovers happening.
