Archie Comics crossover event set to include characters from STREET FIGHTER, MONSTER HUNTER, SKIES OF ARCADIA, and other popular video game franchises by SEGA and CAPCOM.
Archie Comics is proud to announce that “Worlds Unite,” the sequel to 2013’s smash-hit “Worlds Collide” crossover storyline featuring Sonic the Hedgehog & Mega Man, will expand to include popular video game franchises from SEGA and CAPCOM, including “Street Fighter,” “Monster Hunter,” and more.
Expanding beyond the focus on the worlds of Sonic the Hedgehog and Mega Man, “Worlds Unite” will also feature characters from the fan favorite SONIC BOOM and MEGA MAN X universes.
Classic SEGA franchises such as “Alex Kidd,” “Billy Hatcher,” “Golden Axe,” “NiGHTS,” “Skies of Arcadia,” and “Panzer Dragoon” will be involved in the world-spanning epic, along with characters from CAPCOM’s popular “Breath of Fire,” ‘Ghosts N’ Goblins,” “Monster Hunter,” “Street Fighter,” “Okami,” and “Viewtiful Joe” series.
“Worlds Unite” Writer Ian Flynn and Archie Comics Executive Director of Editorial Paul Kaminski spoke with IGN.com about the different characters and franchises appearing in the epic storyline.
“This crossover event is unlike any other you’ve ever seen before,” Kaminski said. “So sit back, grab a chili dog and an E-Tank, and prepare yourself for the ultimate multi-franchise crossover comic book experience!”
“Worlds Unite” begins in May with a special prelude comic available for free in comic book stores nationwide on Free Comic Book Day. The 12-part crossover event begins in SONIC UNIVERSE #76 and continues through the other Archie Action titles including SONIC BOOM, SONIC THE HEDGEHOG, and MEGA MAN.
