“Enuain Perfect World” joins the chorus of 2D fighters

April 30, 2010

While 2D games aren’t impossible to find anymore, they certainly aren’t as common as they used to be. It seems like one genre that happily embraces the old art of using hand-drawn characters is fighters. SNK is still doing that with the King of Fighters, Examu’s games are all pretty much 2D affairs and now a new fighter from Subtle Style is looking to throw it’s chips into the game with Enuain Perfect World. I have a feeling that the title isn’t translated correctly but that’s the best we have for now. As you can see from the video below, the game has huge character sprites, tons of effects and a level of speed that zips along at a pace that should keep players happy.

EPW is scheduled for a release in June in Japan. It makes use of the System Board Y2 hardware, which was first shown off at AOU 2009 and so far has been used primarily for 2D fighting games.

King of Fighters 2002 gets it’s own “UM” upgrade

May 9, 2009

Back in 2007, SNK announced that they would be updating the ever popular King of Fighters ’98 using more modern technology and they released the game in ’08 with the name King of Fighters ’98 Ultimate Match.  Now SNK has decided to do the same thing for KOF2002, giving it an “Unlimted Match” upgrade that is scheduled to be released in Japan, sometime very soon. The game runs off of some new hardware that was shown at AOU 2009 known as System Board Y2 by AQ Interactive and the game has been getting a few tests in Japan already so I imagine that it won’t be long before we can import it over.
