Unholy Night is a new FG from "ex-SNK staff who worked on Kizuna Encounter and KOF98, 2001 and 2002" on display at yesterday's Hong Kong Retro Game Expo '16.

The really WTF thing about this news is that Unholy Night is for Super Nintendo, and will be available in february 2017 on a 32MB cartridge.

More info (in Chinese, is someone can help...) here.
Currently playing: Vanguard Princess, Vampire Savior, Arcana Heart.

    this is....dope in theory but my guess is Super NES is pretty available in China in some form? Can't see why else.

    Reading "for Super Nintendo" and "2017" in the same sentence really boggles the mind.

    lol no, it's because retro gaming is the "in thing" now. It's just like those dedicated fans/crazies who still release games on Dreamcast and other dead platforms.

    SNES is just as dead in Asia as it is everywhere else.

    Releasing for the SFC is strange, if they wanted to go for the retro collector market they should have made it for the AES or something, they pay fortunes for anything new.

    But maybe they inherited business skills from OG SNK too.

    Very interesting and strange. An SNES fighting game with only 6 characters, I'm guessing it's just a hobby project?

    Went around looking for info + tied to see what I could take from google translate, here's what little I've managed to put together:

    It's very likely on a physical cartridge, because it's shown being played on the Super Famicom Naizou TV SF1 (if you couldn't tell by the name, it's a TV with an SNES built in).

    Facebook post says something about February 2017, from the way the rest of the post looks I think it says they're going to have a playable demo at a store (or some other location).

    Y (L and R do something here): 同步計儲氣 - Google Translate: "Same walk meter" - Very likely Special Attack, with L/R probably changing which special attack will be used.

    Google Translate on 'Same Walker':

    After use "super decease technique" and "defense cancellation", the congregation consumption Ichijyo same walking costume.

    Characters:

    Lightning (BLAZE) - Hunter
    Half vampire, something about Black Family Clan, being an orphan, and a name (Ichika Hakuaku, guessing that's his name?).

    120354hhq3l6xg3ffl6qd3.jpg
    Hero (REINHARDT) - Hunter
    The description seems to just state that he's a holy knight, as if that wasn't obvious from his appearance already.

    120820y8108wp0ort110ok.jpg
    Silver Bell(???) (EMILY) - Hunter
    Something about investigating worshiper congregations?

    120354r3bgo6666g926xaf.jpg
    God King (CRONOS) - Darkness
    Sounds like he's a resurrected vampire, some sort of involvement with a corporation named Hadase Odyssey Company.

    120354q2d7s236uu37l66f.jpg
    Warrior (WURZEL) - Darkness
    Didn't gather much beyond 'Wolf Clan soldier'.

    Nightmare (NIGHTMARE) - Darkness
    Google translate gave me word salad here.

    This looks tight as a motherlicker. I hope they sell NTSC repro carts so I can grab a copy.

    It'd be nice to see a proper port to PC. I'd buy it on Steam, but I'm definitely not buying an SNES cartridge.

    Judging by the graphics and animation, that is a 32Mbit cartridge (around 3MB) not 32MB

    Got this today - anyone else have trouble with the special move inputs? They seem really strict.
