15 Gaming Mash-Ups That Surprisingly Worked

pokemon conquest

One of the most bizzarre crossovers of this year is Pokemon Conquest, a game that mixes up the creature-catching RPG with the tactical turn-based strategy of Nobunaga’s Ambition. If Pokemon in Feudal Japan sounds like your kind of game, then I’ve got good news for you, because apparently this title is pretty dang awesome.

I haven’t played it personally (yet) but this crossover got me thinking about what other games have blended two genres or universes and got away with it. Thankfully, Games Radar was thinking along the same track as me and put together a list of 15 of gaming’s most famous crossovers. There are a couple of obvious ones like the Capcom VS fighting titles and Kingdom Hearts, but there are a few in there that I’m puzzled over how they got the green light.

How many of these mash-ups have you played? Are you going to try Pokemon Conquest? What crossovers would you like to see in the future?

  1. TURN BASED POKEMANS??!!?!?!?!??
    ALL OF MY WANT!!!!

    Ahem. I’m excited for Pokemon Conquest! I’ve always wanted a fighter Pokemon game and a tactics Pokemon game, AND FINALLY my latter dream cometh true! Even if the battles are just between Pokemon and don’t include human soldiers, that’s still totally off-the-wall awesome and I want it mucho a lot.
