PlayStation Hero Aloy In Smash Bros.? “That’d Be Nice,” Dev Says


With Horizon Lego Adventures coming to not only PS5 and PC, but also Switch, that means main protagonist Aloy is in a game for Nintendo Switch. Some believe this could open up the possibility for her to join Nintendo’s all-star ensemble series, Super Smash Bros.

In an interview with developer Guerrilla Games, Kotaku asked if PlayStation and Nintendo’s new partnership meant that Aloy could eventually come to the next Super Smash Bros. entry. Franchise development lead producer Tim Symons said, “That’d be nice. If you speak to Nintendo and they want to invite us let me know.” However, no new Smash Bros. games have been announced but are expected given how successful the series is.

While that’s far from a confirmation, at least there’s interest. The Super Smash Bros. series has added plenty of third-party characters over the years, including Sonic the Hedgehog, Cloud from Final Fantasy VII, Snake from Metal Gear Solid, and Sora from Kingdom Hearts. So it’s definitely not out of the ordinary to include Aloy from the Horizon series, whether it’d be her regular self or her family-friendly Lego Adventures version.

PlayStation also has Astro from Astro Bot for its newest family-friendly mascot for younger audiences. So Astro definitely could be a viable alternative for a PlayStation representative in Super Smash Bros.

Lego Horizon Adventures launches in Winter 2024 for PC, PS5, and Nintendo Switch.
