Clash of the Fiction, known in Japan as Fikushon no Shōtotsu (フィクションの衝突, literally Collision of Fiction), often abbreviated as CotF or simply Clash, is a crossover action role-playing game with an open world for the Nintendo Wii U. Drawing inspiration from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and FusionFall, the game utilizes characters from many popular Nintendo, among multiple third-party, series. The only known release estimate is sometime in 2015, globally.

An event known as The Merge caused a cataclysmic fusion of the once-peaceful worlds. Now joined in a dimension known as The Void, the player takes the role of a new recruit who helps many popular video game characters discover the secret behind the darkness. All across the worlds, shadowy clones of the characters have been sighted...

Game Mechanics

The massive, open overworld is loaded region-by-region; when inside a specific sector, the game does not attempt to load any part of any other sector. Events known as Emergency Protocalls can occur periodically, which are missions or goals available for only a limited time.

Non-Player Characters (NPCs) are scattered across the land, each one being an existing character; players can receive both Story and Side quests from them. NPCs, though not directly invited into Players' parties, can fight when danger approaches, attacking anything aggressive that enters a certain vicinity.


Upon creating a new avatar (players are given five slots), the player is presented with a brief introduction sequence. A deep, male voice narrates the following lines, as the camera pans over various locations.

  • "There are many worlds
  • Scattered across many dimensions..."
  • "The gap in-between
  • Nothing but empty space called the Void..."
  • "Dark and dangerous
  • It holds a deep, ancient mystery..."
  • "Rising in power
  • Everything falls into shadow..."

At this point, rushing wind is heard, as the player's avatar slowly opens their eyes from a first-person perspective. Looking down, they realize they are falling and jerk their head left and right, looking for a possible escape. Looking down one final time, the Avatar slams into a mass of land, before sliding off and landing in a fountain, only to black-out.

Coming to, the avatar is woken up by Mario while lying, soaking wet, on the ground. After a long speech explaining your current situation, Mario gives the player a quest that teaches basic controls while following a Toad into Peach's Castle to join a group called The Resistance.

As the game progresses, the mystery of the darkness develops further, with more and more discovered each day. Regardless of the amount of times they are defeated, the shadow clones always seem to return. It quickly becomes evident that the player must collect the sources of power from among the worlds: The Star Spirits, Triforce, Legendary Pokémon, Star Rod, Chaos Emeralds, Jiggies, etc.

Each player, upon creating an account, is given five Avatar slots. The game refers to them as avatars, rather than characters, to distinguish them from the NPCs of the game, and to make the game feel more personal. Each avatar has a unique look, level, skillset, inventory, and storage. They all share a Friends List, Hero Card, and Cyberstorage.

When creating one, it is possible to alter the head, face, hair or hair-like appendages, torso, arms and hands, legs and feet, as well as clothing to the player's liking.

Upon completion of the tutorial, a Power Crest is granted to the player. It is the canon explanation for their avatar's skills and special attacks. It draws inspiration from the Exspheres (Tales of Symphonia) in that it pulls out the user's full potential and Photon energy (Phantasy Star) in the way it gathers and stores energy.

Avatars are not locked to any single method of combat, but effort must be put into the individual skills to achieve decent power and skill points to allot. The Skill Trees of each avatar exists in a dream-like state within the avatar's mind; accessing it requires the player to be outside of combat. The large tree is then sub-divided by 'header' categories which serve as basic classifications. Beyond that are the 'combat' categories, which are trees specified to each form of combat. Different races have varying affinities for each of the combat forms.

Major Elements

There are only a select few locations unique to Clash of the Fiction itself, with many based on the various franchises represented within the game. Each one is further sub-divided into areas that can be accessed by simply walking. More areas are planned to be added in the future.

Emergency Protocalls

See here for more information.

Emergency Protocalls are rare events in Clash of the Fiction that happen periodically. Each one is based on an event that actually happened in a game, and calls for the assistance of any players in the general vicinity. Some are simple, such as a Pokémon swarm, while others are more drastc, such as the Axem Rangers trying to take over a castle with the help of Exor. In many cases, very good rewards can be earned by any players who participate. When an Emergency Protocall is triggered, any character in the immediate vicinity will travel to the given location, as well as one or two characters who are directly involved in the original event.
