Best thing to come out of this series of games was the Rio arcade game with the massive joysticks and foot pad. The only problem is the machine is technically alreday out of date due to the numbered year and event location. I wonder how long they'll keep that machine in circulation..

I'm prety sure I said somewhere else on these boards I always thought the Mario Vs Sonic games were a cocktease for something grander but it never happened. Yes Sonic was in Smash and then the 3DS games had a story mode where the Sonic characters were jerks and the Mario characters were overly nice.

I thought they would go down the RPG route especially seeing as Sonic Chronicles was released around the time as Superstar Saga(?). Plus the afformentioned 3DS story mode. Never really understood why people wanted a platformer between the two. Probably because Mario games were god like and Sonic games (at the time) were dodgy.

Even if I got Mario Kart and Sonic Riders go to the Monaco Grand Prix with Bernie Ecclestone being revealed as the big bad at the end, that would have been enough.

Yeah, I've been wondering for years what's preventing them from doing a "Mario Kart & Sonic All-Stars Racing & Knuckles" crossover racing game, those two franchises are not that different, it could easily work if they do it right.

Plus, Sega is actually good at making racing games, in my opinion. I personally LOVE Outrun 2006, but that's another topic.

Agreed. I mean its not like Sega and Nintendo made a racing game together or anything... oh wait

I mean you'd either put Sonic and co in karts or put Mario and co in a variety of vehicles. Hell they did that in Double Dash!!

I need to stop. I'll get myself excited for nothing.

If you want to get ULTRA technical, AX and GX are the same game, so we're back down to one.

Do we include Mario kart arcade which was a team up of Nintendo(license), Sega(tech) and Namco Bandai(developers)?

I mean, sure, Sega made the Triforce hardware, but I'm not sure if they were directly involved with the game.

That would be like saying Sega helped make Luigi's Mansion Arcade just because it's on Sega hardware (Nu).
