The latest news

(http://segabits.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/dfc_01_cs1w1_720x-600x337.jpg)

Sega has released two fighting games this year (2014), first is Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax (I've pre-ordered the vita version, thanks God it's not region locked), and second is this.

(http://segabits.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/bladea011-600x337.jpg)

These two somehow make me missed playing Eternal Champion on Genesis and Golden Axe The Duel on Saturn.

On topic, anyone know whether this one will get console (or handheld) version? Not just arcade?

Sega hasn't released any SHINING FORCE arcade games..actually many arcade games on console in general. There are some here waiting for a BORDERBREAK port...and that hasn't appeared ..so don't hold you're breath..

Also don't let SOJ hear you mention ETERNAL CHAMPIONS as a comparison..or they'll never release it and come up with an excuse that it will interfere with the latest VIRTUA FIGHTER game...

Hahaha, yeah, I remember about that Eternal Champions/Virtua Fighters thing back then. Sega of Japan seems to deem that the game never existed, no wonders there is no EC chars for Sega All Star Racing/Tennis, no 3D Classic version, no mobile version, etc. *sigh*

It goes back to the self destruction and petty jealousy of SOJ. ETERNAL CHAMPIONS sold 2 million on the MD. And that was the reason they were against the game when it was being developed for Saturn before it got canned. That was the reason why a lot of Sega of america Ips and games that was associated with the MD or Sega of america including Sonic didn't get a game or were treated like crap on the saturn because the SOJ managenmnet wanted to prove they could launch a succesful sega console themselves worldwide. With just their properties without no american co operation like SONIC for example.  And we all know what happened with that ...

No Mariano it won't. None of the modern arcade games from Sega has made it to console..and none of the SHINING FORCE arcade games have either. So i doubt that this will have a port..although it could happen...you can't be sure..and there's a very large pattern that arcade titles from Sega never make it to console especially now with their mobile phone focus..

I played Street Fighter 2 SCE almost every day back then on my Mega Drive / Genesis.
Love SF2 so much, but can't say the same about SF1. SF1's control is so weird.

The Last Boss: Red Eye

(http://segabits.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/05/Red-Eye-600x286.jpg)

Quote
No matter who you choose though, Red Eye can be a colossal pain in the proverbial to gain a win over, and unlike his Virtua Fighter equivalent, Dural, you NEED to beat Red-Eye if you want to get to the end of the game.
He fights using a mix of traditional tonfa (a tonfa is kind of like a night-stick, only not wielded by police officers and with a less cool name) and martial arts based attacks, along with some bat-shit insane stuff where he just throws himself at you while spinning through the air and laughing like a lunatic.

Anarchy Reigns (Xbox 360)
Return of Fan Favorite Characters


(http://segabits.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/segabits-anarchy-reigns-ai-rin.jpg)

Quote
Anarchy Reigns is a title that I can recommend mainly to the biggest fans of Platinum Games.
It’s definitely possible to get a lot out of this game, especially its multiplayer mode; I just wish its release was handled better so that we could have had more people online to play against.
A more fleshed out single player would have helped to remedy this, but that simply isn’t the case.

The SEGA Five: Virtua Fighter Facts


(http://segabits.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/VF2-750x414.jpg)

Quote
Motion capture and texture mapping isn’t really a big deal now-a-days considering most medium size studios have the ability to afford it.
Looking at Virtua Fighter, it was evident that it was missing texture mapping, but seeing as it was the first 3D fighting game it was easy to dismiss.
Yu Suzuki had to go out and find the technology to effectively help create the successor to the Model 1 arcade board, the Model 2.
This board would go on to power hits like Virtua Cop, Virtua Fighter 2 and Daytona USA.

How SEGA-AM2 changed video gaming : Pioneered 3D Gaming

(http://segabits.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/SBGCN-Model-2-Collection-481x600.png)

Quote
Once the 90’s came around, AM2 hit full force developing their model 1 arcade board in 1992.
It was the first arcade board that could run 3D games at 60fps with multiple players on the screen.
The first game that AM2 created with the new board was Virtua Racing.
Even though the game broke new ground at the time it wasn’t the first 3D racing game release.
That would go to Namco’s Winning Run in 1988.
Next AM2 would take on the fighting genre with Virtua Fighter, showing the power of their Model 1 arcade board by rendering human characters with full facial animation.
This game laid the groundwork for later 3D fighters including Tekken and Dead or Alive.

Larcen is my favorite character. I love his time period, fighting style, and look.
Most people assume that Shadow is my favorite female character as she is the most popular for sure, but when I play I love Jetta.
I was always a Chun Li player in SF, Jetta has that speed and air attacks that I really love.

SAVAGE HEROES
A Cancelled Sega Genesis SFII Style Fighting Game


(https://i.ibb.co/ZJFswvK/Savage-Heroes.jpg)

Quote
There was a lot of enthusiasm for the game internally, but we ran into several issues that lead to the game’s demise.
1) It was a very ambitious idea that really should have been on a more powerful platform,
2) the developer we used for the prototype just wasn’t very good.
When the prototype wasn’t very good, enthusiasm started to fade

There are five empty slots in the voice files, but there are only four DLC character slots left.
In other words, it suggests one of these characters will take up two voice files, which in turn hints at the character having a gender alt or possibly a side-kick.

"Sega of Japan felt that Eternal Champions was keeping Virtua Fighter from being more successful in the US and that it would be better if the company focused on only one franchise…and as Sega is a Japanese company, the Japan side won.
Even when we did the NetFighter project for Heat.net, we weren’t able to use the Eternal characters as a hidden bonus.
From Japan’s view the game never existed, in spite of its stellar sales and even offers to do comic books and a cartoon around it."

Wii is an amazing platform but asking us to choose a favorite is like asking a parent to choose a favorite child. (laughs)
We decided to release Tournament of Legends on the Wii for two reasons:
first, the gameplay was designed specifically for the platform and second, building on our Quantum3 technology, we were able to take advantage of all of the bells and whistles that we used in The Conduit right from the start.

SEGA has basically, mostly, sold off its Arcade arcade business to GENDA, a company founded in 2018 to operate arcade rentals, online crane games.
I know its mostly a Japanese thing, but SEGA’s arcade business has been part of its history almost since the start and having them sell off 85% of the shares on the companies 60th Anniversary is a bit bitter.

I think SEGA pulling 85% out of a business like Amusement Centers is a good thing, while they profited for awhile, that profit had been up and down. Never stable and it continued to shrink.
SEGA pushing more developers and workers into making software titles, especially since they are on the rise in sales and due to COVID-19 a lot more people are playing video games at home; it makes sense to adapt.

Power Instinct / Goketsuji Series
Atlus' Best and Craziest Fighting Game Franchise


(https://thumbs.gfycat.com/ShorttermComposedEarthworm-small.gif)

Quote
For the most part Power Instinct strayed little from the proven Street Fighter II formula but managed to introduce some genuine charm into the fold (the final boss / old lady’s slightly younger sister Octane is a playable character and one of her attacks involves throwing her dentures at opponents).
It sounds zany and silly on paper but the play experience is surprisingly solid.
Power Instinct has become a staple franchise in Japan where it spans 6 games, novels, soundtracks, calendars etc.

Virtua Fighter for the Sega Saturn was released on this day in Japan, 26 years ago (1994).
Virtua Fighter almost single-handedly sold the Saturn in Japan, but by the time it reached the West the port’s glitches and outdated graphics allowed the comparatively shallow Battle Arena Toshinden by Tamsoft to be built up as Sony’s Saturn killer for 1995.

If this change wasn't reverted, then it would mean that many Smash players would've had to readjust their muscle memory.
By this point, Mew2King was recommending that players set their C-Stick to tilt if they hadn't already.

Sega describes its new Virtua Fighter as a ‘restart’ focused on eSports

Sega CEO Haruki Satomi described Virtua Fighter X Esports as “a project commemorating the 60th year anniversary of [Sega],” starting “first” in Japan.
Asked if the project would involve a new Virtua Fighter game, the CEO joked that he had run out of time and that more information would be revealed in the future.
However, in its latest financial results, Sega has provided a clearer description of the project, which it confirms is a game “restart” focussed on competitive play.

I just discovered "Toy Fighter" exists today and im already in love with it. It's like a spiritual sequel to Fighters Destiny on the N64. Another great and unique fighter.

I can't find any real information about move lists or FAQs on the games mechanics ANYWHERE. It seems the games super obscure or not really cared about which makes no sense because it's clearly a great game. Maybe it's the cutsey kiddish theme that turns people away?

If any of you know of somewhere that has a full list of moves for this game or something that would be amazing. It's very cryptic not knowing anything other than a small flyer with just a few moves on Google images.

No special peripherals. It just uses your bog standard fighting game controls. Stick, punch/kick/block. It would plug into any standard Naomi cabinet.


It maybe was just overshadowed by the massive fighting games of the time like Dead or Alive and Soul Caliber.


Also, that link you shared brought me to scans of an old Japanese gaming magazine issues which has FULL move lists for all the characters! Exactly what I was looking for! Amazing, Thank you so much!

I see. Guess it doesn't really stand out.
As for me, the character design is just too generic
(only the red dragon was the one who looks cool).
If I had to pick this game or DoA/SC based on the look, the answer is definitely the later.

Anyway, glad to know that you found what you're looking for.  :-D

Definitely Street Fighter.  :-D

Street Fighter II was so big in my arcade center, and it was the reason I choose SEGA Mega Drive 2 over Super Famicom back then.
(because of its six buttons controller layout, other reasons : Golden Axe, Moonwalker).

Here is my collection of the franchise

Street Fighter.
I don't like Mortal Kombat because of its overdose on violence.
The 16 bits Mortal Kombat were all right since the violence wasn't realistic enough, but the recent ones made me want to vomit.
No wonder the franchise never made to Japan again.
Tekken is okay, but too lazy to remember all the combos. Street Fighter's combos are easier to remember.

If Sega ever decides to make a Sega All-Stars fighting game, I hope they make it a direct sequel to Fighters Megamix and not knock-off Super Smash Bros.
Though that'll be the day Virtua Fighter actually has a fleshed out story mode for a change to compete with Tekken or DoA in lore-building.

I hope Virtua Fighter x eSport become success enough to revive the franchise again.
I think the one thing Virtua Fighter series needs is a proper Story Mode. As far as I'm aware Virtua Fighter games (as well as Fighting Vipers) don't have a story mode. They have a story but it's the mostly the "Fighting tournament" trope which feels more like an excuse than a reason in fighting games.

Virtua Fighters does have more to it's story, like the J6 (https://virtuafighter.fandom.com/wiki/Judgement_6) organization collecting data and roboticizing mothers to creat Dural (https://virtuafighter.fandom.com/wiki/Dural). But given Virtua Fighter doesn't have a Story Mode to further expand on it, not many know of D6 or the whole point of the tournament. I mean, sure these games were made for the Arcade, most of Sega's arcade games lack story. But there is no harm expanding on it for console release.

Games like Tekken and Dead or Alive, they have Story Modes in their games and spin-off movies and animations based on these Story Modes. Because of this players can relate more to the fighters they choose and be more engaged in the lore around Tekken. As for SoulCalibur I dunno much about it's media but it too has a story which explains the lore around the Soul Edge and it's ongoing history and story.
Virtua Fighter... a bunch of muscle-dudes show up to fight in a tourney.

I don't know if the Game Gear version counts though given it was based on the anime (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtua_Fighter_(TV_series)) than directly on the games. The anime portrait characters rather differently than the games so I can't really regard the anime "canon" to the games, no more than I regard AoSTH or SatAM canon to Sonic games.


For example in the original Virtua Fighter games, Akira Yuki is suppose to be this serious, no-nonsense martial arts master who take his training very seriously. While he is friends with other fighters (at least, I presume they're friends. Sega All-Stars Racing is the only hint I have that Yuki and Jacky are at least friends.)

In the anime, while Akira Yuki is a travelling martial artist, he's somewhat of a goof. His personality reminds me a bit of Goku from DragonBall Z. The sort who does take his training seriously but will eat a lot of food but still a powerful fighter despite not behaving like one.

I don't know if the Game Gear version counts though given it was based on the anime (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtua_Fighter_(TV_series)) than directly on the games. The anime portrait characters rather differently than the games so I can't really regard the anime "canon" to the games, no more than I regard AoSTH or SatAM canon to Sonic games.

I know it's not canon.
What I meant is the story mode, if they can do it for its 8 Bit version, why not in the modern version.
It doesn't have to be cinematic story like Marvel vs Capcom Infinite or Street Fighter V.
Just a pic of character (with different emotion of course) and background, completed with text and voice acting.
Blazblue, Project X Zone 1-2, DBFC, and Idola Phantasy Star Saga could have interesting story mode with just those.

That would be interesting. Question is would Sega ever do it?

I myself have story ideas for Fighting Vipers. That is if I ever make a fan remake of it. Unity is a hassle.

I wish I can make a Fighting VIpers fan game. I have a story and vision in mind.
I would make the game look like it belongs in an 80s movie, A Miami urbanpunk-genre movie. Even go as far as a VHS-filter over the games camera.
The story in mind is while the fighting tournament is a government event forwarded by the mayor of Armstone city, it is actually a front to peddle a new drug called "kobra". The drug is called that because it uses a cocktail of snake venom and steroids and is delivered in a double-needle syringe. When administered it gives the user a rush of addrenelin and strength allowing them to be more efficient fighters, even if it's temporarily.The fighters are divided into two sides of the tournament. the Kobras who want to use the drug to win and the Vipers who wish to parttake in the tournament for their own reasons without the need of drugs.

That is a cool story concept.
And Kobra is also a fitting name to the snake based game title.
But if there are two sides of the tournament, wouldn't it make they can't fight their own group?

Well, in most fighting games you can pit friend against friend. And sometimes in stories one guy encounters another, don't like the cut of their jib, fight it out and become friends afterwards so there's that.

Kobra users in mind are Jane (https://www.fightersgeneration.com/characters2/jane.html) who is perhaps strong without the drug, but took it anyway during her application for the Marines and was disgraced for it. Raxel (https://www.fightersgeneration.com/characters3/raxel.html) who is a wannabe punk rockstar. And as we all know, or more "who knows", what they put in themselves on a weekly basis. Tokio (https://www.fightersgeneration.com/characters4/tokio.html) is perhaps a "maybe". He left his family of Kabuki actors to join a criminal gang and eventually became the leader, so being crime and all drugs maybe involved. Mahler (https://www.fightersgeneration.com/characters2/mahler.html), who is the one who created the drug and is using the tournament as a front to peddle it. Charlie (https://www.fightersgeneration.com/characters/charlie-fv.html) is a maybe who perhaps mostly uses it to enhance his BMX skills, and takes up fighting in the tournament to proove his skills.

Tokio and Charlie are the sorts I can imagine eventually switching sides. Tokio was leader of the criminal gang Black Thunder but quit when one of the members died, so maybe he has some morality over what he's doing as a criminal and may not like what kobra is doing for others. Charlie has a rivalry with Picky, I dunno how aggressive that rivalry is. But he was raised by his sister at the church so either he will realise taking kobra is wrong, or maybe he'll never do that stuff to begin with.


Probably other fighters that can be on the Kobras but I don't know which ones. But I figure can be an equal number of Kobras and Vipers.

That's interesting story idea.
I though I kinda think that this story is more fit in other SEGA game, Last Bronx, where it shows more 'crime and gang warfare' theme.
Also I think Mahler is more interesting villain to explore than Tokio though, Tokio's kind remind me of Streets of Rage's Shiva.

I pressume Last Bronx takes place in the borough of New York City. I'm not familiar with Last Bronx lore nor have I ever set foot in America to comprehend how big New York is. I know Fighting Vipers take place in the fictional metropolis of Armstrong City and that this tournament was permitted by the mayor. I can't help but imagine Armstrong City mayor looking like Mayor Mike Haggar (https://streetfighter.fandom.com/wiki/Mike_Haggar).

My story idea is for Fighting Vipers in mind purely because the original games didn't have a story and just a backstory/excuse of a fighting tournament to go by. Plus 60s-80s American urbanpunk movies were in mind for the story.
Such as Miami Vice (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miami_Vice), The Warriors (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Warriors_(film)), Cyborg (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyborg_(film)), Double Dragon (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Double_Dragon_(film)) film or practically any movie starring Kurt Russell (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kurt_Russell). My main inspiration being the YouTube film Kung Fury which is a homage to all those movies. (YouTube Kung Fury sometime, it's awesome!)


A "Story Mode" for a modern fighting game can do wonders for it.

Last Bronx took place in alternate version of Tokyo.
But since it's an alternate universe, there could be Armstrong City too there.

Yeah, I've watched Kung Fury. Cringe but it's entertaining.

I never played Xenoblade so when I first saw that video I thought "Someone should tell that lady her hair is on fire."

As for Dr. Eggman in Smash Bros, I would like to see that. I can imagine him taking the stage in the EGG-HVC-001 (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/EGG-HVC-001) and has a quick-switch ability to allow him to change into diffrent mechs needed for his moveset. Like maybe the Egg Mobile-D (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/Egg_Mobile-D) used in similar way Wario's bike is used.

I can't really imagine Dr. Eggman joining Smash bare-knuckle like Sonic. I imagine like Bowser Jr. and the Koopalings he will be reliant on his vehicle than himself.
I would also hope it be a two-for-one release. Dr. Eggman as a newcomer original fighter and Metal Sonic as an echo to Sonic.

Now that you said it, it's true.
Bowser Jr should be Bowser's son, yet he's using a vehicle that resemble Eggman's.

Eternal Champion was Released on JP Mega Drive 27 Years Ago Today!!!

(https://i.gifer.com/FcJg.gif)

Quote
Sega of America took great pride in Eternal Champions, with the game selling very well in Western territories and being re-released under the Mega Hit Series, Classic Mega Drive and Sega Platinum Collection ranges, amongst much spin-off merchandise.
However, the game was never fully adopted by Sega of Japan, who preferred to concentrate efforts on the Virtua Fighter series (and later products such as Fighting Vipers and Last Bronx).
As such, Eternal Champions was sidelined after Sega's US operations were downsized during the late-1990s and is unlikely to make a return in the foreseeable future.

I like to believe that Sakurai regards Smash Bros. games as an "ecosystem" and that his choice of characters and movesets for each character is to not upset that ecosystem by having characters too powerful or weak, make other characters too powerful or weak, how the pick-up items work etc. That said probably the reason why Bowser Jr. is in the clown car and not fighting like his dad is probably because with the clown car he has a moveset that best fits him in the Smash Bros. ecosystem. Not only that but it allows the Koopalings to be echo fighters on behalf of Bowser Jr.

Dr. Eggman for Smash Bros.
That said I'm not saying that Dr. Eggman's default vehicle should be the Egg-mobile while fighting and move around like Bowser Jr., my suggestion is the EGG-HVC-001 (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/EGG-HVC-001) be his default combat mech. The EGG-HVC-001 could be modified to be more agile and throw standard punches and kicks. Think of it like the E-Mech (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/E-Mech) but it's likely most are more familiar with the HVC than the E-Mech. The HVC can also come in a variety of colours such as default red, Good Future purple... those are the only ones I can think of.

I also suggest that Dr. Eggman will have a "quick switch" ability to be able to switch to various mechs from past games to best fit a moveset that can fit in the Smash Bros. ecosystem.
For example, I can imagine the Eggmobile-D (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/Egg_Mobile-D) be used as a side-special where Eggman drives along the stage terrain, has a launchable drill and once 18HP of damage is sustain will break apart and revert back to the HVC.
While the HVC could probably perform regular jumps, Eggman could perhaps have limited flight which would temporarily disable the HVC for default Eggmobile. And while up above can perhaps use Fire dropper (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/Marble_Zone_boss) and/or the Spike dropper (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/Star_Light_Zone_boss) for aerial moves, where Eggman can drop hazards down to the stage. Fireballs will create a small area of fire damage or the spike balls be regarded as hazardous objects, perhaps with physics.
As for standard aerial attacks, I don't really know. Maybe the use of Hammer (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/Tonkachi_Eggman), Big Arm (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/Big_Arm) or Egg Hornet (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/Egg_Hornet) for standard aerial combat.

As for Final Smash... Wrecking ball (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/Egg_Mobile-H)! The ball will automatically swing but the player can move Eggman left and right to apply more momentum to the pendulum.

Just saying Dr. Eggman would have a more versitile moveset for Smash Bros. if he brings his tech along.

Metal Sonic for Smash Bros.
This is more easy. Simply an echo fighter for Sonic the Hedgehog. Super Sonic can simply be replaced with the V. Maximum Overdrive Attack (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/V._Maximum_Overdrive_Attack) but still functions the same way. Metal Sonic may have different run animations due to him mostly using his jet than legs to move about but introducing Metal Sonic along with Dr. Eggman would keep in theme with him.

That was back then when Tecmo was still using SEGA's hardware (Model 2 and Naomi) for DOA 1-2.
After the merger of Koei and Tecmo, Dead or Alive franchise is belong Koei Tecmo Holdings Co., Ltd.
Still it's nice to SEGA lent them Akira, Pai, and Sarah for DOA5.

Sega will likely reveal the future of Virtua Fighter at the next Japan Fighting Game Publishers Roundtable

Whether their plans involve some sort of revival of VF5 or a brand new entry in the storied series remains to be seen though other parts of the marketing machine seem to be gearing up for some activity as well.
Interestingly, the official Virtua Fighter Japanese Twitter account posted its first official tweet in over four years as a New Year's message and pretty much telling fans to look forward to more news here in 2021.

The previous answers cover most of the popular fighting games of today, but let me give you a more personalized answer.As you used to enjoy Street Fighter 2 and Tekken (I assume Tekken 1,2,3), you can try out the latest crossover game called "Street Fighter X Tekken". However, that game follows mechanics derived from Street Fighter IV, which is again somewhat similar to Street Fighter 2.Street Fighter 3 and the Alpha games took SF gameplay to different levels, but SF IV tried to go back to the roots. So you will find yourself at home with Ultra Street FIghter IV, too. It is one of the most balanced fighting game out in the market, and the game is in its final version after a number of updates in the form of SF IV, SSFIV, SF IV AE and fiinally, USF IV.These two games are available for PC, so if you own a decent gamepad and no console, you can go for it. An Xbox360 gamepad should suffice, as it is a very good gaming device for anyone who just wants to enjoy their game without bothering too much about serious competitive gaming.As for Xbox360 and PS3, there'd be hardly any difference in performance if you have a good internet connection.If you just want to enjoy raw Tekken mechanics, you can go for Tekken 6, which is a solid and robust Tekken game. It has most of the old favorites like Jin, Hworang, Paul as well as interesting, new brawlers, However, you can also wait for Tekken 7 which should be released sometime this year, or you can wait for the "Tekken X Street Fighter", which will be a new crossover game (Not to confuse with SF X Tekken) where Tekken mechanics will be used. This game comes out in 2013, so it'll be a long wait.If you want a simpler fighting game to start off with, you can go for Ultimate Marvel VS Capcom 3. This game is easy to learn, and even the beginner player can pull off ridiculously damaging combos. This game is a sequel to MVC2, which was very popular back in the days of Sega Dreamcast console. It's a crossover of marvel characters (X-Men, Spiderman, Iron Man, etc.) and Capcom characters (Street Fighter cast, final fight, captain america, etc.)As for Mortal Kombat goes, the latest game in the series (simply called Mortal Kombat or MK 9) is brilliant; the campaign will take you through a re-telling of the events that took place before the first game in the series. The campaign itself justifies playing this game, and the multiplayer action is also a blast (both offline and online)I really won't recommend the latest King of Fighter games as they are absolutely rubbish, and any other fighting game series won't be worth your time, except maybe the latest Soul Caliber game.Kof XIII is quite decent, though. Still not as great as the older games, but worth playing if you loved the past games or are interested to get in to the series.As you will be returning to fighting games after a long time, the most striking difference you will find is more reliance on damaging combos instead of poking styled fighting.Nothing beats the arcades, but today's online match ups aren't bad either.Happy gaming

Thank you for your sharing. Street Fighter IV is definitely my favorite of all Street Fighter.In fact, I bought 3DS close to the launch day because of Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition, I just loved that game so much.(And I bought PS Vita  close to the launch day because of Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3)
I haven't try much Ultra SF IV because it wasn't on handheld.
I had it on PC, but too lazy to play them because I prefer handheld over PC or TV Console.

In terms of Switch-related questions, the same one from last year about possible ports is arguably the highlight.
The only difference is it's no longer a Switch-only question.

It could be happened, but one of the franchise's playstyle control has to be modified.
Just like Street Fighter x Tekken.

Rumour: Smash Ultimate Fans Think Fighters Pass Vol. 2 Might Get A Bonus Seventh Character

(https://thumbs.gfycat.com/AromaticAppropriateInexpectatumpleco-size_restricted.gif)

Quote
A Reddit user going by the name of RiuBert has theorised that the game's second batch of DLC, the 'Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighters Pass Vol. 2', could well be getting a bonus seventh character on top of the six slots that have already been promised.
Immediate, over-excited thoughts jump to a potential seventh fighter, which could well be true, although it could also relate to an echo fighter, another bonus costume, or something else entirely.

SEGA of America Producer and Designer Michael Latham, best known for Eternal Champions, passes away

(https://i.ibb.co/Gth3NBv/Michael-Latham-Segabits.jpg)

Quote
During 1994 SEGA America would restructure its development teams which resulted in ‘Omega Group’ to lose its Director at the time, Scott Berfield, which was filled by Michael Lathan.
He was then producing titles like Home Alone, Greendog: The Beached Surfer Dude! and his most popular title Eternal Champions.

SEGA PlayStation 3 PSN Titles To Buy Before Sony Shuts Down the Store

Hard not to start the list with Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown, especially since its the last big release of a original IP by SEGA-AM2 studios (Hatsune Miku isn’t a SEGA owned IP).
I will say that your PlayStation 3 fighting game collection can’t be complete without Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown.

That's kind of like saying that there should be a sequel to Primal Rage or that Final Fantasy Games should have a one on one fighting mode option. All nice ideas, but it's cheaper and safer for gaming companies to not go those routes.

Sega Still Has No Concrete Plans For Virtua Fighter 6

(https://sega.jp/wp-content/uploads/2021/05/vf-esports_29.jpg)

Quote
An interview with chief producer Seiji Aoki from Sega :
“Nothing has been decided yet regarding Virtua Fighter 6, so I cannot make any statement. But if you ask me whether I want to create it or not, I do want to create it.”
“This title (Ultimate Showdown) will let us know whether there are demands and potentials for Virtua Fighter. We want to hype it up so it can connect to the next one.”

Tekken Director Challenges Virtua Fighter Team To Make Another Game

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lPX6woqXPdM

Quote
It’s clear Harada took his self-imposed rivalry to heart.
But when Sega stopped releasing new Virtua Fighter games after 2007’s Virtua Fighter 5, he felt he had no one else in the 3D fighting game space to compete against.
Watching high-profile Virtua Fighter competitors—now without a new game to move on to—migrate to Tekken gave him an “indescribable feeling” of disappointment.

Tweek reveals 11.0.1 Super Smash Bros. Ultimate tier list, Sephiroth and Sonic in S-tier

(https://i.ibb.co/6sTM4WT/Eventhubs-SSB-Ultimate-Tier-List.jpg)

Quote
Tweek also moved Sonic up to S-tier.
The blue hedgehog is often placed in B-tier, but the Wolf and Pokemon Trainer player said on his podcast that Sonic has the "best win condition in the game."
Tweek explained that once Sonic has the lead on an opponent, Sonic players can simply just run around and hold onto the win since most opponents can't chase him down.

That's kind of like saying that there should be a sequel to Primal Rage or that Final Fantasy Games should have a one on one fighting mode option. All nice ideas, but it's cheaper and safer for gaming companies to not go those routes.
It might be too late for VF5 to have that story mode, but hopefully VF6 could have one.

Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown: How to master your fighting style

(https://sega.jp/wp-content/uploads/2021/05/vf-esports_13.jpg)

Quote
Understanding how frames work will help you intuitively perform the right attack or counter in any given situation.
It’s a challenging system to master, so when you’re first starting out, it’s best just to keep in mind that “if your attack is blocked, immediately defend” and “if you block, immediately go on the offensive.”

Sega of America repeatedly asked Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown's developers to use rollback netcode but was deemed not feasible

(https://sega.jp/wp-content/uploads/2021/05/vf-esports_20.jpg)

Quote
"Basically, the game uses P2P netplay, and rollback was not included at this time," said Aoki via 4Gamer.
 "Sega of America repeatedly said to us though 'Put in rollback anyway!'" (4Gamer noted that last part was said with a bitter smile)
They (mostly Harada) explain how retrofitting rollback into 3D fighting games in particular is tough due to the fact that they're presupposed on fluid, smooth animations as opposed to the limited keyed animations of 2D games, which makes the frame-skipping more conspicuous

Speaking on how the project got off the ground, Aoiki reveals that even people within Sega, not just fans, were getting pessemistic about Virtua Fighter ever seeing a new release, but the company's 60th anniversary helped make that a reality.
This opportunity though would also provide the team members perhaps their biggest challenge: only having a year to make it happen.

Once home to vibrant live competitions, gaming centers have been bleeding out since before the pandemic. Lockdowns could leave them KO'd for good.
“The saddest thing about arcades shutting down is that once they’re gone, they’re gone.”
This is according to Andrew Fidelis, an American expat who relocated to Japan after college and an event organizer and streamer.

It's sad because I never got to visit a proper arcade ever.

In UK, Arcades are mostly like this (https://c7.alamy.com/comp/A7GBT2/amusement-arcade-interior-with-slot-machines-uk-A7GBT2.jpg). Mostly gambling machines, pushers (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Medal_game), maybe an air hockey board or some amusement carnival games. And maybe a ten year old arcade game hidden at the back of the arcade where no one will notice it.
I never got to play Virtua Fighter, House of the Dead or Sonic the Fighters in an arcade.

Guess it's really different in Asia.
Virtua Fighter and House of the Dead were almost everywhere back then.
Sonic the Fighters was quite rare though.

But time has changing a lot. Air hockey board and those amusement carnival games are indeed really becoming majority now.
Still thankfully there were always arcade games from SEGA or BandaiNamco accompany them.
Gambling is prohibited in my country so arcade center was a place that's safe for kids to play here

In UK arcades are pretty much like the poor mans casinos. Almost entirely consist of slot machines covered in flashy lights, bells and whistles, penny pushers, a few amusement park machines like ball toss and whack-a-mole knock-offs and of course crane games where the crane only grips a second after it rises.

Where I live, we have an amusement arcade called the Buccaneer. It's mostly crane games, kiddie-rides (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kiddie_ride) and I think it had the one or two actual arcade game but I forgot what they were. I think one of them had something to do with Transformers.

Seriously, Arcades in UK are not a place for kids to spend money playing games, they're a place for adults, usually tourists, to spend money on gambling machines.

Arcade center is a family oriented place here.
There are kiddie rides for kids, massage machines for moms, and arcade for dads.
It's just too bad they're kinda struggling to gain customers again when covid-19 happened.

Sega closing iconic Tokyo arcade that’s been in business for almost 30 years

(https://sega.jp/wp-content/uploads/2021/08/210802_3_1.jpg)

Quote
On Monday, the Sega Ikebukuro GiGO arcade announced that it’ll be shutting down, bringing to an end nearly three decades of welcoming gamers, otaku, and fujoshi.
The eight-floor (including basement level) facility opened on July 21, 1993, the same year Sega released such technological marvels as Virtua Fighter, Star Wars Arcade, and Alien 3: The Gun, and with Daytona USA and Virtua Cop arriving in 1994, it must have seemed like the good times were going to last forever.

Post by: Mystic Monkey on August 03, 2021, 03:43:06 pm
A part of me is hurtin' about this.

When I was a child reading them Sonic the Comics, there was an article for a brand new place in London called SegaWorld (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/SegaWorld_London). To my 8-year old mind it sounded like a "promise land to Sonic fans" and the fact it was in UK made the idea of visiting it more tangible. Problem was I was eight years old, in the middle of Wales and a single mother with four boys to worry about, so of course it be a hard "no" on going to Sega World with the old "Because you're too little" answer, that and it's too far away. But Mum says when I'm older I can probably go there so I had hope that when I grow up I'd get to see the most Sonic-iest place in all of UK.

SegaWorld lasted for about three years.

I've heard of Tokyo Joypolis not long after the internet became a common thing in my life, can't recall how I found out about it but I knew for sure that this was the most sonick-iest place in the world and I'll probably never get to visit such a place. Not only that but Joypolis towers the area with a big Sega logo which is kinda make it look Sega is a big deal there. Like it's their own '90s Boulavard (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/'90s_Boulevard) of sorts. Nintendo has a theme park in Universal Studio's Japan, but Sega had Joypolis... I would of loved to play the Sonic exclusive games and rides they have there, such as Ghost Shooting (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/Sonic_Ghost_Shooting) or Brain Ranking (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/Sonic_Brain_Ranking), or even visiting the Sonic carnival which is more for the little ones. Heck there's even Sega arcade games I never got to play like Scarlet Dawn or Virtua Fighter 5.

I knew it was unlikely I'll ever go to Japan to visit Joypolis, now I know I never will.

I'm a 33 year old man and as a Sonic fan I feel like I missed out most things that other more dedicated Sonic fans go to enjoy and it makes me feel depress, like sorta worthless as a Sonic fan. But I also imagine Sega themselves feel much-much worse than I do given they're losing one of their castles here. Joypolis had a bit of history, brought revenue to Sega and left their mark in Tokyo than just being some sub-par software company. Ever since 2006 it's been somewhat of a tumble for Sega.

(Also, Segabits forums is as slow as heck today, I had to rewrite this heartfelt speech three or four times with awkwardly long wait times in between. It was daylight when I tried first posting.)

Post by: Mystic Monkey on August 03, 2021, 04:51:18 pm
Wait, am I confused between two arcades that Sega own? Joypolis and the Ikebukuro GiGO arcade are seperate right?

I mean, sure there is still significance to the Ikebukuro GiGO arcade given it's iconic for Sega over that district of Tokyo, would still be nice to see it for myself.

I can't be bothered to rewrite my previous post over it because SegaBits is so slow today.

DuckStation Lets Xbox Series X/S play PlayStation games at 4K

(https://i.pinimg.com/originals/ae/70/32/ae70321ea5c786d1c906ad7e8560f7c7.png)

Another supported feature is the ability to fix texture warping, which was a typical issue with PlayStation games.
This takes up a lot of processing power, but as the video shows the Xbox Series S handles it well.
Of course, given that it’s an emulator, DuckStation is not simply available on the Xbox digital store.
The only way to access it is to set the Xbox Series X/S to Developer Mode (which requires players to pay a fee to Microsoft to enable), and install the software manually.

Easy characters can hurt fighting games, four reasons why they shouldn't be top tier

(https://gifdownload.net/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/bayonetta-smash-gif-.gif)

Quote
Roster members like Bayonetta in Super Smash Bros. 4, Yun in Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition, and Cammy in Street Fighter 5 have been a very heavy presence in tournaments, and they're often regarded as some of the easiest characters to use in their respective games.
The main issue doesn't tend to be that a character might be much easier to play than their other cast members, but instead if that character is easy to use AND high tier.
This combination usually means this character will dominate in the competitive landscape, and often be at our near the top of the results and usage on numerous occasions.

Couldn't they just... not allow those characters to be playable in tournaments if that's the case? Like if a champion has won all the trophies for the last five years can a competition ask them to stand down and give the others a chance?

115 pounds and under went to Junior Bantamweight class, 135 pounds and under went to Lightweight class, etc.
Kinda hard to measure for video games.

Nintendo Shuts Down Another Smash Bros. Tournament

Quote
What makes this instance even more absurd is that Riptide’s Project+ tournament would have been completely offline.
(Brawl’s official online multiplayer, just to note, has been out of commission since 2014.)
The mod also requires disc copies of Brawl to work, so piracy is not an issue either.
Project+ is merely a game mod, so if you’re wondering what Nintendo’s objection is, you’re not alone.

I'm thinking the catagories could be how easy the fighters are, or if the fighters can be grouped by types and what-not. After all if there are fighters more powerful and easy than others, then pit them against fighters that are just as powerful and easy.

Mick McGinty was an artist with unparalleled talent. Back when video games required enticing box art to sell, much like books often require captivating covers, Mick was one of the best around.
Mick created artwork for Street Fighter 2, Streets of Rage 2, Streets of Rage 3, Shining Force, Kid Chameleon, and more.
However, his talents weren’t even restricted to video game art, as he has a website dedicated to a whole host of other art, including breathtaking scenic landscapes.

It's one of the only two movies that could make me shed a tear.
The other one was Hachi: A Dog's Tale.

In term of characters, I want Tails or Shadow.
But in term of gameplay, I want Aiai since I'm curious about how his gameplay will be.
Will he stay in the ball all the time?
Will his super move got anything to do with banana?
Will he use his boxing gloves? Or a balance board instead?

In term of characters, I want Tails or Shadow.
But in term of gameplay, I want Aiai since I'm curious about how his gameplay will be.
Will he stay in the ball all the time?
Will his super move got anything to do with banana?
Will he use his boxing gloves? Or a balance board instead?

I can imagine his Final Smash is literally giving whoevers playing him the power of tilting the entire stage how they please, thus they can try and shake and punt the opponents off the stage with the stage itself.

My choice of which Sonic character to be in Smash would be Dr. Eggman. I can imagine him in the EGG-HVC-001 as his prime mech. It's modified to be more agile than it was in Palmtree Panic such as able to jump, punch and kick, but also fitted with a "quick-switch" function which would allow him to switch to other boss mechs from past Sonic games in order to fill his moveset.

Reason why I want Dr. Eggman for smash is because most of the fighters have had their villains invited to Smash already. Ridley, Sephiroth, King K. Rool and so on. And while I want Dr. Eggman as an original fighte,r it be the cherry on the cake if he took Metal Sonic along for the battle as Sonic's echo.

Khinsider Has Removed 500+ Albums Related to Sega

(https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/51kGrAhpTDL._SX355_.jpg)

Quote
"Segapocalypse!
Wave Master, the company that manages Sega's music, has contacted me and asked me to remove lots of albums related to Sega.
At the end of the day, over 500 albums were removed, including Sonic, OutRun, and others.
Unfortunately, this even included fan made compilation albums for games that have no commercial releases, which, quite frankly, makes absolutely no sense.
If you were wondering why some albums have disappeared on the site, this is why."

That would nice to do with gyro control.

It's cool to control Eggman in his mech, but I doubt Nintendo would like to see EGG-HVC-001 in their own game.

Other than Sephiroth, they are from Nintendo's franchise.
Pac-Man, Mega Man, Simon Belmont, Ryu, Joker, Bayonetta, Snake, and Banjo-Kazooie didn't have had their villains invited to Smash.

Do the bosses count such as Dracula?

But yeah I think Nintendo would take the irony of it and have Dr. Eggman in the EGG-HVC-001 after knowing that just to show the Famicon was still the fighter to them. But my main reason for this choice of mech is because:To me, while Dr. Eggman is physically strong in his own right, not without the power or durability to back him up as Bowser, King K.Rool or Ganondorf has.. unless going by Mario logic then perhaps Dr. Eggman can hold his own without a mech. But a mech will provide him with the power he needs to fight while still being iconic. And a quick-switch ability to turn his egg-mobile into other recognisable mechs would not only make him more iconic but fill out his skillsets.

  • It's more well known and recognisable.
  • It has appendages that can be used for fighting, especially the bumpers for fists.
  • The E-Mech (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/E-Mech) which is perhaps Dr. Eggman's significant mech for fighting is just not as well known as his other machines.

How about Eggwalker?
While E-Mech is cooler than Eggwalker, I believe Eggwalker is more likely choice due to how popular Sonic Adventure 2 is.

The reason why I didn't count the Egg-walker is because it lacks arms. This is it's only punching attack he had (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/Punch_(Eggwalker)), a boxing glove on a stick.

This is why I'd pick the EGG-HVC-001. It's a recognisable mech from a (somewhat) mainstream Sonic game and has servos for standard punching, kicking and jumping manuvers. It can also come in red and purple which is at least 2/8 palette swaps

The only problem I see with it would be how it would pick up weapons off the ground such a baseball bat or laser sword. Maybe the bumpers turn into claws from the prototype (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/File:CD_Eggman_boss_concept.png) design for it. But I like to imagine when it comes to hanging off edges, Dr. Eggman has to stand up from his seat and grabs on with his hand which his legs hold the weight of his mech.

I think EGG-HVC-001 is too tall. E-mech is indeed the right suit for fighting, since it was used in VS Fighting game.
But of course they could just make a new mech.
E-mech is also a new one for Sonic The Fighters after all.

They could scale the HVC down to at least 190 / 6’3” in height. Which is roughly the maximum height fighters in smash can be. To converse in size I can imagine the HVC's legs and arms scaled down a bit.

If the EGG-HVC-001 ever made it to the SFM workshop, I would animate various movesets myself to rough demostrate how it could work.

That got me thinking, if Sonic Forces let us customize our own character, Team Sonic Racing let us customize our own car, then may be it's time for a game that let us customize our own Egg mech.

Will it really be the final fighter in Ultimate? I mean, Ultimate is supposed to be the pinnacle of the Smash Bros. series and expande along on the way. So there maybe more Challenger Packs in the future?

Yes, it's final. Sakurai wanted to rest from SSB after this.
He said making this game was really tough and basically games are just more fun to play than make.

So there maybe more Challenger Packs in the future?

No. At least not for SSB Ultimate on Switch.
If there are ever new characters again, it would be on the next SSB, not on SSB Ultimate.

I guess hard luck for Sega, Square is more involved third-party franchise in Smash Bros than the other third-party fighters.

Also, when Sakura said it was he was the last character, did he truely mean it? I mean, will there be no more updates or new characters or DLCs to SSBU? (Other than maintenance I guess.)

Well, they gave Switch their Kingdom Hearts games, not a bad deal for Nintendo. Cloud gaming version but still.
Now SquareEnix could be proud of themself since they have most characters representation.

SEGA : Sonic, Bayonetta, Joker --> 3
Capcom : Megaman, Ryu, Ken --> 3
BandaiNamco : Pac-Man, Kazuya --> 2
Konami : Snake --> 1
SquareEnix : Cloud, Sephiroth, DQ Hero, Sora --> 4

Yes, he meant it.
Back then in Smash for Wii U/3DS too, when he said this is the end, then it's really the end.
Adding new character was fun, but to make it balance & compatible with other 80+ characters was tiring for him.
Quoting him again, "games are just more fun to play than to make."

That's the difference with mobile games I guess, who's constantly adding new characters until the game's not selling well anymore.
When the console game developer said they wanted to wrap it up, then that's the end.

Well that's too bad. The last fighter would of make or break my decision to buy a Switch or not. I know a silly basis of a decision but I don't want to spend money on a console for just a few exclusives. And Smash Bros with more representives of Sonic would of been a selling point for me.

Yeah, wallet's saved for you.
For me, I've put this game on the shelf.
Playing as Sonic in SSBU is fun (he's so f*cking fast), but without new SEGA characters, I'd rather use my limited free time playing the other new game : Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania.

Sakurai: When I introduce a new character to my game, I have to make sure their strength and skillsets are balanced to make sure not to throw off the digital ecosystem I have throughout the game. Down to their endurance, their skills, their abilities and even their stages are contributing factors to the game. Because of this I don't welcome just any character to my game.

(https://c.tenor.com/sc15vRYeX0cAAAAC/demon-slayer-zenitsu-agatsuma.gif)

Quote
While encouraging users to mark story-related segments with spoilers, Aniplex also explicitly forbid them from uploading any content from the second boss battle in the eighth chapter, which is based on the Mugen Train arc.
Demon Slayer: The Hinokami Chronicles will automatically remove the music and disable recording after the specified story point on platforms with built-in recording systems, such as the PS4 and PS5’s Share feature.

There are two other RetroArch emulators on Steam via both the Genesis Plus GX multi-platform emulator and Final Burn Neo, however Picodrive goes a bit further by finally supporting 32X games.
Anyone that was using the play test version of their emulator should migrate over to the mainline Steam release (https://store.steampowered.com/app/1118310/RetroArch/).

I still think it make more sense just to continue SSBU indefinitely. Heck Bethesda has released Skyrim on almost all modern consoles since 2011 because they know how customizable and marketable that game is.

I mean, I get it, the more fighters means the more difficult it be to balance the whole ecosystem the game has. But I really can't imagine a sequel topping SSBU.

Unless he collaborates with Sega to release a Sega vs Nintendo Smash Bros game.

Due out in late November to early December, Susamaru and Yahaba are two of six planned free post-launch characters.
The first update, which added Akaza and Rui, launched on November 4.
The third update, which will add the final two characters, has yet to be dated.

As long as Masahiro Sakurai weren't willing to continue SSBU, I don't think Nintendo would continue it.
And Sakurai were already burned out of SSBU, wanna take a rest a while and exploring other interests.
The most possible of the continuation if Nintendo launch a new system.
It could be new concept of SSB or reboot, or just a remake of SSBU with more characters, but it won't happened on current gen (Switch v1/v2/Lite/Oled).

Back in the NDS days, I fantasized the idea of a SSB spin-off game where a Red version consist entirely of Nintendo characters and a blue version for Sega characters. And that both games were compatible with one another. I wouldof course got the blue game.

I think SEGA could make their version of SSBU if they're willing, which sadly they're not.
They have SEGA All Star series after all with racing, tennis, puzzle, so why not fighting...

I'd rather if Sega ever decided to make their own Sega Superstars fighting game, that it's either a sequel to Fighters Megamix or a genuine collaboration with Masahiro Sakurai for a genuine Smash Bros. spin-off game.

Because let's face it, when Sony made Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale (https://playstationallstars.fandom.com/wiki/PlayStation_All-Stars_Battle_Royale), for a game that rips off Smash bros. no one really cared. When Nickelodeon released their own Nickelodeon All-Stars Brawl (https://nickelodeon.fandom.com/wiki/Nickelodeon_All-Star_Brawl) game, instead of critisizing it as a rip-off of SSBU instead it's just compliments and agreements over it, likely because SSBU has finished and NASB has just begun.

But if Sega tries to make their own platform fighting game with Sega characters, I just know critics and trolls will not hold back the mudslinging of it being a "rip-off" of SSBU. It's always the same, whenever Sonic Team release a new spin-off, IGN and critics are quick to call it "Sega's answer to Nintendo's game" of the like. Heck S&SASR:Transformed did not copy the car/boat/plane thing from MArio Kart, Mario KArt was simply released first before S&SASR:T but people still thought All-Star Racing Transformed ripped-off Mario Kart which now had cars switching from boats and gliders.

Just saying the only way I can see Sega can make a platform fighting game with little to no heck from Nintendorks is either a collaborated or a consented project from Sakurai, or a direct sequel to Fighters Megamix. And honestly I prefer the later.

I meant how easy it is to make for SEGA right now..
They already had Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Shodown.
All they had to do right now is just adding some characters and stages..

It will perhaps require some modifications, but I like the idea of a Sega fighting game with gameplay styled after Tekken, DoA and SoulCalibur, especiall SoulCalibur's armour mechanic worked in for the Fighting Vipers fighters.

Plus it would definitely be "different" from the Smash Bros. games so Nintendorks can't critisize it for being a rip-off. All the more reason why I would want such a game to carry the "Fighters Megamix" name to concrete it with a game series that's older than Smash Bros.

Though I imagine Sega would rather call it "Sega All-Stars Fightiers Megamix" than Fighters Megamix 2. It would still count as a sequel to Fighters Megamix but also be an installment to the Sega Superstars games. That and it's perhaps too long for a Sega Saturn game to have such a late sequel... unless you're NiGHTS I suppose.

Yes, I'd hate it if it kinda same with SSB.
SEGA should've been rhymed with innovation, not following others.

Though I imagine Sega would rather call it "Sega All-Stars Fightiers Megamix" than Fighters Megamix 2. It would still count as a sequel to Fighters Megamix but also be an installment to the Sega Superstars games.

I don't think SEGA uses "Sega All-Stars" trademark anymore.
They could name the game "SEGA All-Star Racing Transformed" and "SEGA All-Star Puzzle".
But they picked "Sonic All-Star Racing Transformed" and "SEGA Heroes" as titles instead.
I wonder why.

That and it's perhaps too long for a Sega Saturn game to have such a late sequel... unless you're NiGHTS I suppose.

Or Sakura Wars.
I think my Saturn thread (http://segabits.com/forums/index.php?topic=4125) is full of Sakura Wars, kinda too late to make it a separated thread.

Sakura Shinguji as guest star in Samurai Showdown or Last Blade would be cool, though.

I think they would still use the All-Star name if they were inclined to make an All-Star game. I know "All-Star" is usually a term for fan-favourite sports players and athletes but I like to believe they got the name from their Dreamcast budget series Sega All Stars (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sega_All_Stars) which I think it's a clever reference... even if most of the Sega All Star games rarely mentioned the Sega classics.

I also like the fact that Fleetway's Sonic the Comic were the first to use the "Sega Superstars" name when StC had comics based on other Sega games. So it all connects in a way.

Sega Heroes was perhaps an acception to the name given it was made by Demiurge. Sega perhaps simply asked them to make the game and permit them the characters.

I think a "Sega All-Stars Fighters Megamix" would be an ideal sequel to both Fighters Megamix and the Sega Superstars series.(Or call it Sega Superstars Fightmers Megamix.)

Well it's either that or Sega come up with a term for their Sega heroes. Such as... well Sega Heroes I suppose. But I think Sega Superstars has stuck more.

Originally released for Capcom CPS-2 hardware in 1994, it was brought to the Sega Saturn on 22nd November 1995, and is built similarly to the likes of Street Fighter II' and Darkstalkers.
The game was widely praised as a result of this, in addition to its colorful graphics and use of voice actors from the then-current X-Men cartoon series.

Nintendo has announced the arrival of a brand new update for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and it sounds like this could well be the last.
Taking the game to version 13.0.1, following on from the 13.0 update that introduced Sora, this latest patch will certainly be the final update relating to fighter adjustments.
