People have been wanting this for over 10 years. Yet all we got is the stupid Sonic & Mario at the Olympics franchise.

Someone should put a watergun to Iwata's head and force him to make it or get wet.

In SA2, it's Super Sonic and Hyper Shadow.

The closest thing we've gotten is Super Smash Bros Brawl. That's kind of a platformer... with fighting.

because Sega and Nintendo have both been focusing on releasing the individual games in rapid succession over the last few years and they're worried that a game featuring both characters would compete with the games featuring a solo character.

Although they could easily (and wisely) release a sonic/mario game,wait 6 months and release a mario/sonic game and then release a Sonic & Mario game 6 months after that and it wouldn't affect the success or sales of the earlier games if was kept secret until 2 months before it's release.

It could also be based on how completely different the two gameplay formulas are because sonic is more like a fast paced rollercoaster and mario is a more precise platformer that takes careful timing.

Which is exactly why it would be so nice if they could combine the 2 and create a fun & balanced game.

I've heard that they haven't done it because the characters are too different - that Sonic's speed results in a different play style from the Mario games. That's the excuse the companies use anyway.

Personally, I'm not sure I'd want to play a Mario and Sonic platformer. Do we really want to see Mario turned into one of Sonic's friends?

A Mario galaxy/Sonic 3D would be the only viable way to successfully utilize both characters.
