Who Should Gundam Fight? (Besides Gundam)

The Gundam Vs series doesn't really venture far outside of the Gundam universe. You know what you are getting into: Gundam.

Take, Mobile Suit Gundam: Federation vs Zeon, Mobile Suit Gundam: Gundam vs Zeta Gundam or Mobile Suit Gundam: Gundam vs Gundam Next. Notice a pattern?

These games are great if you know your Zeta from your Zeon, but for newcomers to the series and its iterations, these games can seem like inside baseball. So when Namco Bandai announced that it would be announcing (ungh, we know) the next entry in the Gundam Vs series at the upcoming AOU arcade game expo, it's logical to think that it will be more of the same Gundam stuff fighting Gundam stuff.

And that's fine!

But, what if Namco Bandai were to open up the franchise a bit, let it breathe and have Gundam fight another franchise. Say, Gundam vs. armoured Core. Gundam vs. Macross. Gundam vs. Evangelion. Just imagine! Gundam vs...

    Gundam vs Capcom.

    MAKE IT HAPPEN!

    I'd like to see some Gundam Vs Xenogears or Xenosaga.

    Gundam vs Go Nagai.

    Topic over.

    Gundam vs. Skatesharks

    Gundam vs Mario.

    We all know Ninty has that buying power.

    There is already a crossover series where Gundams fight other giant robots that aren't from Gundam. It's called Super Robot Wars, and it been going for forever.

    The only reason we haven't seen an english title of the series (aside from side stories with original characters) is is due to the various western licenses. This irks me somewhat, as I've been a fan of Giant Robots since I was a kid, and I've always wanted to see Giant Robots PUMMEL each other! It started with Transformers Evangelion was the next series that caught my interest (as well as also being the ignition to my fandom of anime), followed some years later by Gundam Seed (I never could follow Wing on TV).

    This vacuum in the Giant Robot industry within the West has always put us behind Japan, who just cannot seem to get enough. From god-like Super powers to realistic technology, Japan will always have a step up over any giant robot, in any form.

    As for a Vs title?
    Gundam Vs Gurren Lagann. THIS Vs WILL PEIRCE THE COLONIES!

    Gundam vs. Giant Shark?

    Gundam vs. Samurai Pizza Cats?

    Gundam vs. Transformers?

    Possibilities are endless!

    Well, we have Another Century's Episode (ACE) on PS2, and Super Robot Wars. Both series have Gundam and numerous others. I'd like a Gundam vs style game though, ACE isn't quite as much of a beat-em-up as the vs series.
