Kellogg’s vs. Capcom

kellogs-vs-capcom
Yes, you did read that right. This ‘Dream Roster’ article will be taking a look at Kellogg’s vs. Capcom! Before we take that first bite into our new roster today, make sure you look at past Dream Roster articles, including Konami, Marvel vs. Capcom 4, Nintendo Kart and Fire Emblem Warriors!

You may be wondering where on earth this idea came from, but before you have me committed just let me explain. As random as this seems, this idea did NOT originate with me. In fact it was popular enough among Marvel vs. Capcom fans for Seth Killian, then community manager of Capcom to acknowledge it in 2011 interview as a game he would like to be a part of!

So why not? Kellogg’s is a pretty beloved brand with some memorable (and some forgotten) mascots.  Ones that would translate perfectly into a vs. style fighting game!

Characters were selected based on a few guidelines:
– Would they translate into a fighting game?
– Popularity of brand.
– Deliciousness.
– Capcom characters were chosen based on tone, style and themed similarities with Kellogg’s characters.

So without further adieu, here we have it:

The idea itself uses a Tatsunoko vs. Capcom formula of 2 vs. 2 gameplay, with a total roster of 32 characters. For the character select screen layout, I aimed for simplicity as I felt it meshed best with the concept of a cereal box.

If you want a character breakdown, you can find it here:

  1. I know this is supposed to be for just the two, but the fanboy in me would love to see a character from a third party cereal brand like Trix, Lucky, or Cap’n Crunch thrown into the mix just to shake things up! Still, great list 🙂

  2. Might as well quit while you’re ahead, Anvil, because you’ll never reach the greatness of Kellogg’s vs. Capcom ever again. 😛

    • General Mills vs. Kellogg’s? I think that might work 😛

  3. Now this is the kind of gritty, intellectual discussion I can get behind.
