FATAL FURY: KING OF FIGHTERS
Fatal Fury marked a big change of direction for SNK, as it was the first of several fighting franchises that the company would go on to create and publish. Created by takashi Nishiyama, who made the original Street Fighter, it was intended as a spiritual successor, and as a result shares numerous similarities with Capcom’s brawler. due to the Neo-geo’s four-button layout, there are fewer options, with attacks focusing around punches, kicks and throws. one unique aspect is that fights take place across two rows, with the player able to jump between them as fights progress. Nishiyama’s game would go on to spawn several sequels, and also launch The King Of Fighters, which would go on to become just as popular.
