The genus of fighting games is one that lends itself great for Crossover of all kinds. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is the most recent case, but you do not forget titles like Marvel vs Capcom, _ Street Fighter X Tekken _, and the thousand collaborations that titles as mortal Kombat and Killer Instinct have had in their last deliveries. Now, Katsuhiro Harda, producer of Tekken, wants to bring this concept to the next level, and make a union between the most popular fighting games of the moment.
During the most recent episode of Harada’s Bar, the YouTube program where this producer interviews multiple Japanese developers, revealed that it would love to make a crossover between series such as Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, Killer Instinct, Soul Calibur, The King Of Fighters, Guilty Gear, Tekken and more . This was what he commented:
“I’ve said it for years. Previously, I have worked on similar things directly. The developers are not against the idea. They would love to make a product together, like an ‘All-Stars’.
It would be great to do something like a King of Fighters from the entire fighting games industry. 2D or 3D, no matter, we would decide who enters.
It would be nice to make a joint venture to carry it out too, but the creators are not the ones who decide. These adults would fight what company would handle it, so I have ignored this idea for the past 20 years. It would simply not work. “
Of course, this is just a desire of the producer, and at the moment there is no official information. Considering that TEKKEN X Street Fighter is not yet a reality, see a project of this specified magnitude, it sounds like something impossible , even if all the developers involved want, something with which it even agreed. However, this does not stop being an incredible dream.

Editor’s note :
The only way he see it possible for a game of this type real, is if Masahiro Sakurai gets at the forefront. With the Super Smash Bros series. He has proven to have strong and clear ideas to adapt characters of all kinds to this formula, so the experience of him could serve to unify fighting games in a single name.
