G4TV 'Fate: Unlimited Codes' Hands-On Impressions

Given how some gamers (and some game journalists) have a real bug up their butts about games based on animes and mangas, it might seem risky that Capcom are going to be releasing an American version of Fate: Unlimited Codes, a 2D fighter for the PSP based on a computer novel turned manga and anime, neither of which have been released in the U.S.

But while not many in the U.S. will be familiar with the original comic book or cartoon, Fate's gameplay - as we leaned from our time playing the game at Capcom's recent Captivate 09 press event - will be very familiar to gamers, since the title employs many of the tenets of your standard issue 2D fighter. You know, like Street Fighter IV. In fact, the game was originally made for Japanese arcades, with this version being a revamped port of the PS2 version that was in Japan.

The story is too old to be commented.
