Nintendo 'listened' and fixed the GameCube controller issues that the version 11.0.0 Switch update caused for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate



Quote
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



Quote
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.

That looks awesome !!! I never heard this game before so it's kinda interesting to me.
Thanks durrdevil, I'll add it to the front page.



The info from Segaretro is also not much.
May be this game is using unique peripheral or something that made it rare.
Such a shame that Dreamcast version was canceled.

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
