I have been playing a lot of video games lately. I know…I abandon you all for a month, say I’m going to be writing a novel, but instead I play all the games. I didn’t plan it that way, but when you suddenly come into four new systems in less than six months, you have the need to use them (plus Super Mario Odyssey though).
An indie creator and the Big N gave us Mario + Rabbids, and the wedding of Disney and Squeenix gave us Kingdom Hearts with a variety of ever confusing numbers and excruciating waits for the third one (?). I apologize; I’ve actually never played KH (action RPG and whatnot), but I certainly loved watching my husband get his ass kicked by Sephiroth in the Radiant Garden.
This brings me to this week’s question…
What other game or franchise would you crossover with Final Fantasy?
This is one of those questions I didn’t have an answer to before I post it, but for some reason all I can think about is Assassin’s Creed. You’ll have to forgive me since the only one I’ve ever played is Origins, so I only know the most minimum of details; however, I think a guild of assassins would be quite enriched with the addition of my one-winged obsession up there. Assassin’s Fantasy or Final Creed would work for different but acceptable reasons. Final Creed is growing on me more though. It’s kind of like “final oath,” and it could have to do with the oaths the assassins take that could have some magical factor/geis involved with them, and possibly the plot is the main character attempting to do something that breaks the oath, but for a good reason, and hey, we may have a story here!
I wonder how a Legend of Zelda crossover would work. Final Legend is a kick ass name, too. What about Metroid? Mother Brain and Jenova certainly have that creep, hive-mind factor going on, and don’t the metroids themselves suck out life energy?
I haven’t really worked out the semantics of gameplay or anything like that since none of the others are RPGs, but I like the narrative options and would love to hear your suggestions in the comments. Fanfiction anyone?
What games (or any other media) would you cross over with Final Fantasy, or let me know any other crossovers you think are cohesive! Also, since Disney owns Marvel, it’s possible that my two favorite characters could technically end up in the same game 😀
