Master Chief in Super Smash Bros?

23 Oct, 07

Super Smash Bros. Melee sold millions on GameCube, the most popular title to ever hit the console. Smash Bros Wii, even by the most conservative of estimates, is expected to sell no less than nine billion copies in its launch week. Are Microsoft and Sony missing a trick by not developing their own loved-up first-party fan-service mash-up scrapper?

Maybe. We’ve run our own simulations, the fruits of which you’ll find below. And we’ve taken a few liberties with characters, adding some in that have strong associations with Xbox/PlayStation, but aren’t first-party. Hey, if Nintendo can throw Sonic and Snake into the mix...


1. Master Chief

Stage:  Pillar of Autumn
Special attacks: Dual-wielding, rechargeable energy bar, sticky grenades, vehicle silliness
SUPER special power: Teabagging fallen opponents

2. Sam Fisher
From: The Splinter Cell series
Stage: GFO oil rig
Special attacks: Night vision, being allowed to kill, doing the splits, knowing all about your naughty past
SUPER special power: Calling on the US government for ‘favours’

3. Big Daddy
From: Bioshock

6. Ryo Hazuki

7. Frank West
From: Dead Rising
