There's been a lot of buzz already this week that Microsoft and Nintendo could be collaborating together on something. Well, the official Halo Instagram account has only added fuel to the fire with this new artwork, which can only be described as a massive tease.
The art, which is beautifully drawn, features many iconic Mario characters sporting spartan armour. Nintendo's very own Mario is even donning Master Chief's suit, with his own unique twist and signature logo on top.
This would make a great desktop wallpaper, to be honest!
But what does this all mean, if anything? The obvious answer is it's potentially a tease that the two companies are cooking up something, but we simply don't know yet. That being said, it's fun to theorize and throw around some fun ideas. Master Chief for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is a reoccurring comment in the responses, and that's something we could definitely get behind... even if it isn't strictly Xbox related.
Do you think this artwork is signalling anything, or is it just a bit of fun? Let us know in the comments below.
In Phil we trust.
I've always felt Halo is very cartoony and not too serious because of the enemies are often cartoon characters bumbling around squealing in high pitched voices. Would be amazing if Halo infinite had some of the Mario enemies in there in some sort of cross over universe. Or a Bowser boss battle. The character design feels like it wouldn't be too out of place. Come on Phil - make it happen!
@StonyKL It's only the Grunts that really have a sense of humour, whereas the Prometheans / Forerunners and other species are far more serious.
As much as it would be funny to see some Goombas in the Halo universe, it's highly unlikely there will ever be a crossover. The most we can hope for is Master Chief in Smash.
Halo Infinite on Switch xcloud Game Pass app day one.
You heard it here first
I feel like The Master Chief Collection has been rumored for the Switch forever.
I don't know what to think. I mean, my understanding is one contentions during the Mario + Rabbids game dev was that they didn't want Mario to be seen holding something that could look like an obvious gun, why the final blaster ended up looking so over the top. Cant see them allow MS to put a Halo Assault Rifle, but then again, here we are, with official art where he is doing just that...
Again, what @blinx01 said. Well, sorta. 😏
