Retro Gamer Issue 155 "History of Fatal Fury" Article
RiKo
This months' Retro Gamer (Issue 155, Nintendo NES on the cover) has a large History of Fatal Fury article which looks at each of the games in the series with comments from SNK developer Yasuyuki Oda

I haven't had time to read it yet but picked out a couple of interesting quotes that caught my eye.

"Fatal Fury 3's development was stopped due to the Great Hanshin earthquake, and then we had no choice but to release a game of lower quality than expected"


Having heard that a sequel to Garou: Mark of The Wolves had been planned before SNK's 2001 bankruptcy, we had to ask Oda if it had been. "Yes, that is true," he confirms - but as we get out hopes up, he lets us in on the unfortunate truth. "the data is almost gone. However some of them are still in our office as PDF files," he explains, meaning that little other than concept documents have survived.


In a separate article, they also interview Brian Hargrove (NTM on NeoGeo.com forums) about the prototype (Dragon's Heaven?) Neo Geo fighter he found recently.

Just downloaded the latest issue. It's a pretty good look at the Fatal Fury series overall. I'd still love to see the remaining concept art for the Garou sequel.

I've read it now Smile Yes I wish they had asked more about Garou 2. Interesting that Real Bout 2 had the shortest development time of all the Fatal Fury games.

One thing though. I always thought it was weird you could only play as a few characters in the early games. Especially since it was competing directly with SF2. I wish they had asked more about that. All the article said was that the series was initially aimed more at solo players. But solo players would still like to play as other characters! I suspect a low budget or short development time was the real reason.

NEO-GEO man
Hard to say why, but i guess it was due to the story line they had in the game Wink

There's a Neo Geo - The Complete Manual special from Retro Gamer that's just popped up in the app. I'm unsure how much new content there is, or if it's a collection of previous articles?

I don't know what that is. I googled and couldn't find anything. Yes I'd imagine it's a collection of their previous articles. I did actually prefer their earlier Neo Geo articles to the ones they've done in the last 2 years.
