Cult Video Games Essentials: DreamMix TV World Fighters

DreamMix TV World Fighters is a crossover fighting video game developed by Bitstep and published by Konami, Takara and Hudson for the GameCube and PlayStation 2 in Japan on December 18, 2003. The game crosses over characters from Hudson and Konami’s video game series and Takara’s toy lines.

The idea behind the game is that a fledgling television program has been suffering from poor audience approval, and the station that carries the show has informed its producers that they will have to rectify the situation or face inevitable cancellation.

An unorthodox plan is implemented: broadcast a contest pitting various superstars from differing realities in physical combat in order to increase ratings.

The game sees up to four players controlling fighters from various franchises. The game revolves damaging opponents and taking their life in the form of heart shaped coins. A meter at the bottom indicates how much life characters have remaining. If a player loses all of their hearts, they will enter the Super Pinch state in which they shrink in size and their soul will fly around the stage. If another character retrieves their soul before the player can, the player is knocked out though can still walk around the stage in shrunken form to interfere with the remaining fighters. The last fighter standing at the end of the round wins. The two main modes of play are World Fighters, a single player campaign, and Character Soul Survival, a multiplayer battle. There are also minigames available.
