We’ve seen a Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest crossover and a Dragon Quest and Super Mario crossover. Both took place in the mystical Monopoly-like Itadaki Street dimension.
But, characters from all three franchises together in the same game? That would be a first. Looks like it’s going to happen over hockey and dodgeball. Japanese message boards are buzzing about a tiny bit of text on the bottom of the official Mario Sports Mix site.
Notice how it says Final Fantasy characters and Dragon Quest characters? While Nintendo has not said anything about Dragon Quest characters or items for Mario Sports Mix, that copyright notice is there for a reason.
There’s one empty slot too… perfect for a Dragon Quest cameo, but which character will make the cut. Slime? Nah, I can’t imagine an armless slime excelling at any of the four sports in the game. Maybe the hero(ine) from Dragon Quest IX then?
