On Tuesday, January 18, Microsoft hit the table hard when it announced the acquisition of Activision Blizzard for a whopping $70 million. This historic purchase will take place next year, but that did not stop Xbox fans from starting to unleash their imaginations and start fantasizing about the brand’s next projects.
After all, we must remember that with high-profile franchises like Overwatch, Starcraft, Call of Duty, World of Warcraft Y Crash Bandicoot, Xbox has a catalog of iconic characters that could be used in new titles. And that’s without considering the Bethesda intellectual properties that now belong to him.
Fans want Xbox to make its own clone of Super Smash Bros.
Taking all of the above into account, some fans felt that Xbox already has enough tools to get into fighting games. Super Smash Bros. To demonstrate the potential of this interesting idea, users on social networks began to publish their lists of characters that could appear in a hypothetical crossover game of this nature.
Thus, there are those who believe that characters as recognizable as Spyro the Dragon, Crash Bandicoot, D’va de Overwatch, Doom Slayer and Vault Boy could enter the battlefield in a game style Super Smash Bros. from Xbox. Of course, legendary personalities such as Master Chief, Marcus Fenix and even Blinx could not be missing either.

Just in case, it’s worth remembering that all of the above is pure speculation on the part of players. Long story short, we don’t know if Microsoft plans to greenlight a crossover project of this magnitude in the foreseeable future.
Meanwhile, we remind you that, in recent months, platform fighting video games have seen a very significant increase in popularity. With the completion of the development of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, it seems that other companies want to fill that gap. A few months ago debuted Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl, while this year will debut MultiVersus, crossover game from Warner Bros.
But tell us, would you like to see a game like Super Smash Bros. developed by some Xbox studio? Let us read you in the comments.
