Video Game Ad of the Day: Fatal Fury


Fatal Fury was the first fighting game to be released on the Neo Geo. It was designed by Takashi Nishiyama, the creator of Street Fighter, who had left Capcom for SNK in the late 1980s. This ad is for the Mega Drive version, which lacks a lot of the lustre of the Neo Geo version.

Video Game Ad of the Day: King of Fighters: Maximum Impact

Remember when people thought that 2D fighting games would be better in 3D?

While not the first SNK fighter to be given the 3D treatment, King of Fighters: Maximum Impact is probably the one best remembered for the transition. It ditches the team system, retains less than half of the average King of Fighters roster, and introduces a bunch of new characters that nobody really liked. It’s not that bad as fighting games go, but the disappointment of the audience overshadowed any redeeming qualities the game had.

The ultimate fighting game grudge match.

Capcom vs. SNK: Millenium Fight 2000 is the first Capcom-developed entry in the crossover fighting series. 14 characters from each brand (28 total) come together to battle it out to see just who really is the king of fighters. It was originally released for Sega’s NAOMI arcade board, and later ported to Dreamcast. This ad comes from the campaign for the release of the Dreamcast port in North America.
