Fatal Fury: Battle Archives Volume 1 alludes to number 2


If the volume one moniker in the title wasn’t suggestive enough, the backside of the manual certainly hints at a second Fatal Fury compilation…




In Japan Garou Densetsu: Battle Archives Vol 2 contained: Real Bout Fatal Fury, Real Bout Fatal Fury Special and Real Bout Fatal Fury 2: The Newcomers. Garou Mark of the Wolves didn't make the cut.


In the meantime there is Fatal Fury: Battle Archives Volume 1, which is pretty good. Yeah, it contains some older games in the series and it’s not going to change anyone’s mind about 2D fighting games. Then again it’s not out to. Fatal Fury: Battle Archives Volume 1 is a no frills compilation disc with four emulated Neo-Geo classics. No online play, no art galleries, just ROMs bundled on a disc with free play. The only “bonus” is a color editing mode where you can play stylist and change Terry’s outfit to pink and orange. Still it is worth the $15 if you’re an SNK fan and a great look back at the origins of the two plane fighting system. So many fighting games use that now even anime based ones like Bleach DS and Naruto. Dust off your arcade joystick and grab this.
