Fatal Fury: First Contact, a fighting game released on Neo Geo Pocket Color in 1999, appeared out of nowhere on the Nintendo Switch eShop. Merry Christmas!
Heavily based on arcade fighter Real Bout Fatal Fury 2, which was released just a year earlier in 1998, the game features names like Rick Strowd, Li Xiangfei, Geese Howard, Mai Shiranui and – of course – Super Smash Bros. Ultimate star Terry Bogard.
Features in FATAL FURY: FIRST CONTACT include a POTENTIAL POWER feedback mechanic that allows players to unleash a special ultra-lethal death move and opportunities to play as the protagonist DOMINATED MIND and hidden boss REAL BOUT FATAL FURY 2, Alfred. The Nintendo Switch Tabletop and Handheld modes are a perfect match in the Fatal Fury paradise, as they go hand-in-hand with the game’s single track fighting system beautifully.
If you want to dive into Fatal Fury: First Contact, you’ll find it in the eShop for $ 7.99. We’ll leave you with this special video message from SNK Producer Yasuyuki Oda:
