There’s a new one-on-one fighting game coming to the SNES, and there’s some serious retro development pedigree behind it! Foxbat Co Ltd., is a team of former SNK developers with credits on some of the company’s many famous fighting games including Art Of Fighting, Samurai Shodown, The Last Blade, Kizuna Encounter and iterations of the King Of Fighters series including 98, 2001 and 2002.
Unholy Night: The Darkness Hunter takes on a supernatural theme with heavy anime overtones, looking somewhat like Darkstalkers by way of BlazBlue, and will be released in 2017. A prototype version was recently shown at the RETRO.HK retro gaming event in Hong Kong, running on real SNES hardware, and the Extreme East F.G.C account has posted some footage of the game in action. It’s looking a little slow and clunky at present, but there’s plenty of time to iron that out. The game is set to be released on a huge 32 megabit cartridge, and the version displayed at the show currently features six characters, each with three special moves and a super move.
