Pitting school children against each other in a fighting game seems like a pretty controversial move – but hey, Capcom did a great job!  Rival Schools: United By Fate saw players choosing two characters as a team for one-on-one brawls. You could call your partner in for special attacks (as with their later Marvel vs. Capcom games), and switch them between rounds. It was a colourful, fast-paced game with real energy and character, but nothing has been seen of the series since the start of the 200 Marvel, Sports, Baseball, Games, Fighting Games, Teams, Capcom Games, Brawl, Basketball Court

Power Stone was a 3D brawler set in open environments, allowing fighters to use objects against their enemies and transform into a beefed-up version of themselves when collecting three of the titular stones. This gave each fight an additional goal beyond simply beating each other, with players competing to get their alternate form and have an edge over their enemy.

There hasn’t been a proper Darkstalkers game in a long time, though compilation sets have been released. Like Eternal Champions, Darkstalkers revolves around a gripping concept, with multiple characters based on legends and ancient stories (a mummy, a vampire etc.) fighting it out.  Darkstalkers has also been adapted as various anime and comic-books, but fans have been left wanting for a brand new fighter. Despite strong interest from the fan community, a future Darkstalkers continuation looks u Character Base, Dominant, Mummy, Adaptations, Vampire, Proper, Legends

Not enough fighting games feature giant marauding monsters. Primal Rage is one of the few, but sadly, the planned sequel was never released officially. However, if there was ever a perfect time for the almost-series to continue, it’s now.  Why? Because with another Godzilla movie on the way, Kong: Skull Island being a hit, and both Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom & the Pacific Rim sequel in production right now, there’s a clear fondness for the classic movie-monster in the air.

Back in the early 90s, Virtua Fighter made history as the first arcade brawler with glorious 3D polygon graphics. Sure, it might look a tad ropey now, but back then it was mind-blowing.  Virtua Fighter went on to influence other fighting games, like Dead or Alive and even Tekken, and several sequels & spin-offs followed. Its arcades are even displayed in the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History, which is a pretty impressive testament to the series’ importance. 3d Polygon, Smithsonian, National Museum, Mind Blown, American History, Arcade, Spin

Eternal Champions’ concept was a great one for a fighting game, and even led to a comic-book adaptation in the UK’s unforgettable Sonic the Comic: basically, you played as one of several master fighters pulled from across different times, with the winner able to balance the universe and save humanity from fading away.

Bushido Blade was a fighting game with a real difference: rather than battering your enemy with a series of punches, kicks, and combos, you used a variety of weapons to pick them off one limb at a time instead. Game Mechanics, Gaming, Outlandish, Bushido, Just Run, Videos, Enemy, Video Game

Bloody Roar might look like any other Tekken-clone from the PS1-era, but there’s a neat twist at its core: characters had the ability to transform into awesome human-animal hybrids. Take that, Heihachi! Ps1, Roar, Abilities, Playstation, Video Games, Take That, Baseball Cards, Human
