1The Guest Characters That Fighting Games Need

Guest characters are all the rage in fighting games these days, it would seem.

We’ve had Noctis in Tekken 7, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in Injustice 2, and pretty soon we’ll have Geralt of Rivia in Soul Calibur VI. Though the practice isn’t totally new. Anyone remember Yoda and Darth Vader being in Soul Calibur IV?

The fact of the matter is, though, that guest characters don’t always gel very well. Sometimes they feel a bit forced. Like they’re more of a marketing move than a worthwhile inclusion. Though that being said, as a marketing move it probably works; being able to play as Ezio certainly made me more interested in Soul Calibur V.

Anyway, the the whole guest character thing got us wondering just who we’d like to see making an appearance in our favourite fighting games. Who would be our perfect guest characters? Read on to find out.
