Fighting game

The Mid-90s saw the explosion of fighting games and ultra popular titles such as Capcom's all time classic Street Fighter and SNK's popular Art of Fighting. Fatal Fury is one of those titles and was available for the ultimate console back then - the slick Neo-Geo. But yet, Hudson Soft converted a few of those SNK titles for the PC Engine and Arcade card system. Fatal Fury Special offers some of the same features than its big brother, including the two fighting levels where the player can freely fight in the foreground or the background of the scene, adding a palpable amount of strategy to the game. Fatal Fury Special offers an impressive list of fifteen fighters to choose from : Terry Bogard, Andy Bogard, Joe Higashi, Jubei Yamada, Big bear, Cheng Sinzan, Axel Hawk, Billy Kane, Laurence Blood, Tung Fu Rue, Duck King, Geese Howard, Wolfgang Krause, Ryo Sakazaki (from Art Of Fighting) Mai Shiranui and Kim Kap Hwan.

The series counts fifteen cards - each one of them featuring a fighter from the game (serial numbers G-1 to G-15). It also shows another series of phone cards featuring the release of World Heroes 2 with a set of fourteen cards (serial numbers W-1 to W-14). See the 'Omake' section.

Fatal Fury Special is eye-dropping. Let's pause for a second - it is sometimes hard to believe that the PC Engine system was only a 8-bit machine released back in 1987 ! And here it is, pushed to the limits, brilliantly tuned with a System Card - the tiny console system trying to grow as big as SNK's Neo Geo powerhouse. This may sounds crazy but the end result is beyond anything you could imagine - words are missing to describe how good this game looks and feels. This title was a great technical achievement back in the mid-90s, no doubt about it. It moves beautifully and definitively gave the fans what they wanted to some degree.
