Eight games already released or in devolopment with many relaunches.
The game starts off with a young boy named Sora who is on a quest to rescue his two best friends, Riku and Kairi. But in the process, meets many Disney characters each in their own universe. Throughout the game, players face challenging bosses, meet many memorable characters, see many twists that will keep you on the edge of your seat, and wonder what just happened after the game is finished.

Series of Fighting games published by Nintendo featuring characters from established video games.
The Original Smash Bros was released in 1999 by Masahiro Sakurai.
Started with only 12 characters, then rose to 25 characters, then 35 characters including: Mario, Fox, Link, Kirby, Pikachu, and many more.
So far, only three characters have been featured that are not from Nintendo: Solid Snake (Metal Gear Solid), Sonic the Hedgehog (Sonic), and newly announced Megaman (Megaman).
Players choose a character out of a list of a wide variety of characters to be used to face other players to determine a winner. During the fight, objects appear out of nowhere including the smash ball (introduced in Super Smash Bros. Brawl) that could change the tide to any match. The match comes to an end after time runs out or the victor is left standing. This game is fun, challenging, and addicting to players who want to beat his/her's friends.

Street Figher came out at 1987 by Takashi Nishiyama and Hiroshi Matsumoto.
Started of with 12 characters and increased to 57 characters with many characters leaving the following game and returning a couple games after.
There have been 4 Street Fighter Games so far,. But there have been many updated versions of each game and many crossovers.

Final Fantasy is a series of many Role Play Games (RPGs).
The first Final Fantasy was released in 1987.
The series now have 13 base games and many sequels and reboots. They even have an online game.
In each game you start out as a character who goes one an adventure away from home. He/she battles fiends and builds a party. In each game the universe is similar, however, the characters and plot differs throughout. The fighting system also changes with each game. My personal favorite fighting system is the one Final Fantasy X-2, the sequel to Final Fantasy X.
The first Soulcalibur game was released in 1999 for the Dreamcast console.
There are 5 base games in the Soulcalibur series. But there is 1 side game and another is in development.
This game is a fighting game. You have a bunch of characters to choose from, including: Cassandra, Rafael, Talim, Li Long, and Ivy. They also have a few more famous characters such as: Darth Vader, Yoda, and Link.

The first game is a platform game, where you go through different levels as Sonic and try to defeat Dr. Robotnik, nicknamed Eggman.
Mario Party is a party video game series based off of the famous Mario games.
There are 9 Mario Party games and a few side games for handheld consoles.
In Mario Party, you choose from various Mario characters (such as: Mario, Luigi, Peach, Daisy, Toad, etc.) and go around a board collecting stars. Who ever collects the most stars wins. However, there are traps set around the board and bonus stars are given at the end of the game based on stats.
