Once again there’s another C64 game that’s well worth a mention, as thanks to Jon Eggelton and Saberman letting us know through our Indie Retro News Facebook group, we’ve been told that Jon Eggelton and Gianluca Alberico has released an ALPHA version of the eagerly awaited game of ‘SNK vs CAPCOM’; a new C64 game which is using their in development fighting engine known as RetroFighter. To coincide with this HOT news story, Saberman has also done a video showing the game in action.
Unlike before when we said that Retro Fighter is a new work in progress C64 versus fighting engine with new features implemented such as a new UI and colour selection for each player, intro sequences before the battle commences for each player, flaming hits and projectiles, special moves, and different battle arenas. What has changed since the first shout out is…. The game is not only still called SNK vs CAPCOM of which we mentioned before, but now includes the musics for all the stages, guard breakers and reversal moves, stage selection in versus mode and complete character storylines with intermission and even ending animations!
Next video will be for the final release and then, hopefully, another special release will be created only for C128 that will include stage scrolling too.
