With the fighter now restored as a viable genre in the gaming world and a new generation on the way, let’s have a look at the top 5 fighting game franchises that need to return.
No Killer Instinct?? I can't take this article seriously.
I remember when that dropped. It was like the most amazing console game I'd ever seen at that point.
"I can't take this article seriously." ... I hear this a lot, catch phrase or meme? They really listed Def Jam and Fighting Vipers... wtf is fighting vipers!? lol I'd prefer Samurai Shodown (loved this in arcades in the 90s, Killer Instinct, Rival Schools, Eternal Champions (Sega CD). All of these are way better choices in my opinion. Samurai Shodown had a guy with a dog that was my favorite to fight as. edit: Turns out Samurai Shodown had releases this gen, I just never saw them before :/
No KI at ALL on this list! WEAK ARTICLE!
It's the TRUEgamereview...so your argument is false.
- fatal fury - bloody roar - power stone - killer instinct - samurai shodown
A new "GOOD" DBZ game wouldnt be a bad either
I definitely would be down for another Power Stone game and Killer Instinct 3. Capcom should at least re-release Power Stone collections for PSN,XBL& Nintendo Online system.
def jam was sooooooo good!. bloody roar & powerstone too. also add killer instinct
I didn't see Primal Rage on there. Obviously everyone likes Killer Instinct except the author here. :-) I'd also like to see Eternal Champions and a new Clay Fighter.
Primal Rage was sweet.
Primal Rage was cool, I'd love to see a next gen Eternal Champions...I loved playing challenge from the darkside on sega cd....and of course Killer Instinct
- Fatal Fury - Art of Fighting - Rival Schools (with 2D sprite, please capcom!) - Darkstalkers
For me it'd have to be... Killer Instinct Bloody Roar Rival Schools Power Stone and finally... Bushido Blade
Agree 110% And I've said this many times , I LOVE BUSHIDO BLADE
Samurai showdown...holler if you hear me
I'm a huge SNK fan such an underrated developer
Garou: Mark of the Wolves and The Last Blade series definitely......
Ready 2 Rumble on the Dreamcast. Now that was a game.
Da fak, no Killer Instinct?
Power instincts/Gouketsuji Ichizoku Street Fighter EX Rival Schools/project justice Bushido Blade (not really a fighter, but close enough) Jojos bizarre adventure X-men mutant academy (definietly not as good as MSH/CotA, but still fun) Loved those games when I was younger...
Jojos Bizarre adventure is coming back
what do you think Street Fighter IV was EX with much nicer graphics
Have to disagree, EX was a very different take on the street fighter combat system. Was pretty cool with chaining Supers. IV did have super chaining but you had to super cancel to lead to the next. Jojo is coming back, but is that still made by the same people?
@hkgamer No, this time CyberConnect2 is the developer of Jojo Bizzare Adventure All Star, not Capcom. But from all the trailers i already seen, it looks great and worth the wait. They even include Josuke Higashikata from Jojolion.
There was a fighting game on the original XBOX called Tao Feng: Fist of the Lotus. It was pretty awesome. You could target limbs and render them useless. I still play it today. Damn good underrated fighter. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Fatal Fury Art of Fighting Samurai Showdown Last Bronx Last Blade
Clay Fighters would be pretty cool these days.
Lol, I just mentioned Clay Fighters below. You beat me to the punch, lol. I imagine the characters oozing & smudging all over the screen. I think a company with experience, like Capcom, could produce a decent remake.
Sigh, The list was 'meh' at best; Def Jam - Yes, I agree, an very underrated franchise. Fatal Fury - Mmm, yeah, a Fatal Fury 4 would be great, following the original story, before it spinned off into Real Bout. Bloody Roar - Mind as well go with Battle Arena Toshiden, IMO. Or how about Bloody Roar vs. Toshiden? Power Stone - great fighter, to be honest, but I'm thinking something like Erhrgeiz is a better choice. Hmm, maybe it could help SquareEnix out a bit in these dyre times for them. & Fighting Vipers - sigh, again, a great game, but there are much better candidates out there. Like Rival Schools. Maybe Vipers vs. Rival? My 5, off top of my head, would be; Eternal Champions - doesn't need an introduction. Hey, don't lie, you neve defeated all the forms of Eternal Champion... TMNT Tournament Fighters - what better time than now? New movie, new generation...let's do it. Samaurai Shodown - great battle system & very much underrated. I honestly think that Samaurai Showdown should've returned before King of Fighters, not to take from KoF, but... A new X-Men/Marvel Superheroes - bring back Spiral, Juggeraut, Thanos...& add newbies, Nightcrawler, Blackcat, The Blob...that's what this generation needs now. I would've mentioned Killer Instinct & Primal Rage, but everyone knows how overdue these games are. But I honestly could'nt mind seeing some out of the blue, cult favorites be remade, like; Martial Champions - an arcade import at the game. If you could find it, you were playing it. Ramna 1/2 - first touched the SNES as an import, a cutesy japanese fighter. Royal Rumble/Wrestlemania - make it like the old arcade version; crazy powerhousez & arcade-style gameplay. Way of the Warrior - revamp the whole story, gameplay, etc., thern pit it against Mortal Kombat... Clay Fighter - the gameplay could be good, but I think the graphics for the animaton could be fun.
"Clay Fighter - the gameplay could be good, but I think the graphics for the animaton could be fun." Is it opposite day!?
I wouldn't group Power Stone. I view it as a party game.
I want Fatal Fury Mark of the wolves sequel with KOFXIII engine!!! MAKE IT HAPPEN SNK
I want Eternal Champions with NetherRealm engine!
Power instincts/Gouketsuji Ichizoku Fatal Fury/Garou/Real Bout Art of Fighting Street Fighter Alpha World Heroes
Def Jam was a wrestling game not a real fighting game. Bloody roar was okay but im not into 3d fighters. Power stone was fun but more of a party game platformer than a fighter. Never played fighting vipers. Fatal Fury? King of Fighters 13 is pretty much the best fighting game out right now and it has the best of Fatal Fury in it... Killer Instinct would bring back nostalgia kids but it wont last, it would be the same results as bringing back Goldeneye. What I would like to see again is the Rival Schools series make a comeback.
I want some new DBZ, Naruto, Power Stone, Samurai Showdown, Primal Rage and Rival School games for the Vita. Seriously though they need to bring Primal Rage back..
