News:: You know what would make a great fighting game? Rick and Morty

For over two decades, people have played Capcom's brand of crossover fighting games starring Marvel and Tatsunoko. But Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite crashed and burned spectacularly over the course of E3 with its play-it-safe character roster, bland visual direction, ugly graphics, and its devastatingly terrible demo. But hope was not lost as a new star simply Instant Transmissioned into our hearts.

We've had Dragonball Z fighting games before, and they were all fine and dandy, but this new iteration from Arc System Works brings it to a whole new level. So much of what makes Dragonball Z unique is recreated in Dragonball FighterZ. Environments being destroyed when ki blasts are deflected, a rush of strikes being exchanged in the blink of an eye, and even high speed movement, directly behind your opponent, is something you can do for the cost of a bar of super meter.

Seeing Dragonball Z recreated so faithfully, and excitedly, had me thinking like most people obsessed with fighting games. What else could become a fighting game? The wonders of a big budget would be awesome, and I make that statement because we co-exist with M.U.G.E.N.
