    Here comes another after market game attempt, this time is a SNES fighting game developed by EX-SNK Playmore devs to sell for fighting game fans of the 1990s. This isn't really the first time this has been done as there been some games like Nightmare Busters, Pier Solar and the Great Architects for Genesis/Megadrive, and Battle Kid Fortress of Peril for NES. Anyway the game is a 2D fighting game featuring standard fighting game modes most modern games have at the time. Base on the description, it has the same standards of fighting games other Neo geo games had at the time. Release date is June 29 2017 and pre orders are available at sites like amazon in the us for $49.99.

    I hope they planned for it being a rare collector's item. I don't know anybody who still has a snes, and I only have the VC games myself.

    Well to be honest, it would been safer to just release as a VC game or just stand alone game, but i guess people still like collecting stuff like this. Me personally, I wouldn't use buy it for $50 especially for the console it is for. $8 VC title would been enough for me. Even pier solar and the great architects was being sold for genesis/megadrive in 2011 for $60, but the idea was it was a Epic 64 bit game (8 Megabytes) cart that came with a Sega CD enhancement disc to give better quality music. Then make a HD game and sold it for $15 on PS3/PS4 Xbox360/Xbox one Wii U and steam. This was probably a better idea to do it this way than just a SNES cart. :)

    If anyone hasn't played Pier solar yet, you might want to try it if you are a huge Classic JRPG fan of the 1990s.

    Yeah, I also have a PAL SNES.

    Seems pretty awesome though that the SNES still gets some love even in this day and age ^^

    A Tekken/Dragon Ball in the same vein as this game would be cool to see. :) Commercially speaking, there would be no point to develop a game for the SNES CD-ROM console but we'd get to see what it'd be capable of.

    NES, SNES, sega cd, Saturn and dreamcast are all still getting games. Saturn and Dreamcast getting the most. Something like 300 games have been released on the Saturn since 2000

    Jeez you're slow with this - it's been out for well over a month in Japan, and it's unfortunately shit (check youtube).

    Really? So all that effort to make a game for an obsolete platform was meaningless?

    Well, is their choice. It would have just been more simple to release it on steam or any digital service. Or least if they was gonna make a retail copy to add more content. Is a fighting game with like 8 characters, Arcade, training, survival, and versus on a 4MB cart (32Megabit for the classic folk) Is not really much you could have done.

    For some reason, both SNES and Genesis can play much larger games than 4MB (32meg) games. Star ocean and Tales of phantasia are 6MB (48 Meg) games for snes. Super street fighter 2 on genesis is 5MB (40megs) and Pier solar is also 8MB (64 Megs) Honestly both genesis and snes can play at least up to 8MB ROMS i believe. Why they would choose what they did is a bit concerning.

    Still they would least been safer with $15 digital release with online mode and some extra features.... and better looking graphics. Though the artwork is nice though.

    True. I almost bought the Super Famicom release for the packaging alone... but after seeing the gameplay I thought better of it - and I'm a big SNK/fighting game fan!

    Do i even need to ask about the box it was in? The manual had a more appropriate artwork for the box cover but they took the only 2 female characters and just went the typical way. :ninja:

    Anyone with an avatar like yours cannot seriously take that moral stance.

    It's disappointing, given the pedigree behind it... but there are quite a few other SNES/SFC physical releases on the horizon that look more promising. Retrobit are supposed to be releasing a Jaleco compilation cartridge, and there's that game that was only ever originally available on the Satelaview service (that I can't remember the name of) that's being released on cart soon too.
