Fatal Fury Final Arcade Game – 1st Stage Playthrough Video

Fatal Fury Final

As a kid who grew up in the video arcades of the 90s, I feel like that was the golden age of gaming. That’s when the whole fighting game genre took off with Street Fighter II, Mortal Kombat, Killer Instinct and King of Fighters. And along with all of those, we had the quarter-munching side-scrolling beat-em-ups like X-Men: The Arcade Game, The Simpsons and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time. What if we could combine these two terrific genres into one beautifully retro package.

That’s exactly what Fatal Fury Final is. The freeware title (yes, free!) takes the sprites and 90s styling of the original Fatal Fury game and transplants it into a game that is similar to Final Fight from Capcom. The key difference here is that your Fatal Fury characters — like Duck King and Joe Higashi — can do their special moves too, in addition to the usual button-mashing mechanism of the classic side-scrollers. The net result is an amazing experience.

Download it for free from GameJolt.com. Seriously. You won’t regret it.

To give you a taste of what to expect, here is the title and intro sequence from the game, along with a playthrough of the first stage with Terry Bogard. Power wave! Crack shoot! Burn knuckle! Rising tackle!

Live Action King of Fighters ’99 (Video)

You may have seen some epic King of Fighters tournament action, but nothing quite like this. Say what you will about the animation style of Street Fighter EX, but this “real life” version of The King of Fighters ’99 is pretty beastly. Power geyser! Featured characters include Joe, Terry, Bao, Clark, Kim, Kyo, K’, Robert, Andy and Iori, among others.
