Following the recent announcement of Sonic & Mega Man: When Worlds Collide, Kotaku caught up with Archie Comics scribe Ian Flynn to talk about the upcoming crossover. There, Ian speaks a little about how the whole thing got started and his aspirations for the project, among other topics.
Below, a couple select segment from the interview:
Kotaku: Sonic and Mega Man represent different approaches to video game play mechanics, and those approaches shape their characters. How will you show off their personalities during this crossover?
Flynn:We've pretty solidly established who the characters are in their respective comic series. All that's left is to transplant them into the event and see how they react. The action will be intense, the stakes will be high, but all that razzle-dazzle wouldn't mean much if we didn't have endearing characters to cheer for. We've got them interacting with each other and their supporting casts from start to finish. The lasers and explosions are icing on the (blue) cake.
Kotaku: Will there be any animal/human kissing in the crossover?
Flynn: Yes. Hot Amy-on-Wily action. Haha – no, no, none of that.
For the uninitiated, that last tidbit is a reference to this. I thank my lucky stars Archie is *not* going down that route!
