||Final Fight Revenge|
Mar. 2000 (Japan)
4 MB RAM
> Final Fight Revenge is a pseudo sequel to Capcom's successful side-scrolling beat 'em up series. The most notable in the series was the perfect arcade translation of Final Fight to the Sega CD (known as Final Fight CD). Actually, the Sega CD version's music was far superior. At any rate, Final Fight Revenge (FFR) is a 3D fighter similar to Virtua Fighter 2 (arcade/Saturn). The arcade original uses the ST-V board (basically a Saturn) so the conversion should be cut-and-dry. Capcom will utilize the 4 MB RAM cartridge to ensure that nothing is lost and everything is gained.
> I've never seen this game in the arcades and from what I've read, FFR wasn't too popular. That's ok though... after all, I own and play a Saturn, which isn't exactly on top of the "how to be cool list". This hardcore gamer (me) will not miss the opportunity to play another Capcom fighter for the dual 32 bit monster.
> My guess is the control scheme will be similar to all Capcom fighters (6 button). As you can see, there will be 10 immediately selectable characters in the game. It's weird that only one of them is a female!? Special moves and even some weapons will be at your disposal. Beyond that, I'll know more when this gem is in my hands and I review it.
> The import factor is high since it's a fighter. Besides, it's not coming to America (as if you didn't know). I suggest you pre-order this game if you hope to own it because only limited quantities will be produced and available to import houses. If not, there's supposed to be a Dreamcast version in the works and hopefully we'll get some details on it soon...
