I’m asking this because the Wii has been neglected as a “Hardcore game console” and it is becoming the only “current gen” getting a lot of love from retro and new “2D and 2.5D fighting games” it has Smash Bros Brawl (well if you considered a fighting game), King Of Fighters: Orochi Saga (KoF 98 alone makes this game worth a lot), Tatsunoko Vs Capcom (There is no argue here), and Guilty Gear Accent Core (same as TvC), also the newcomers:
Starting with this one GGAC+ with tweaks and some tourney side modifications this game is setting to be at evo next year, Samurai Showdown Anthology (coming as well), and If I’m not mistaken Real Bout Fatal Fury Special Antology. The the new Beat’em up TMNT: Smash Up being developed by the guys from the (so far broken) SSBB, and the awesome developer TECMO are getting a lot of hype. Hopefully the graphics are developed by the Brawl developers, and all the game mechanics by TECMO. I know that a lot of these anthologies, or compilations are on the PS2 (or PSP) as well, but the all mighty “last gen king” is on his way out to a well deserved retirement.
Sadly, for us the Wii Community we don’t have a lot of Hype for fighting games unless there is a a guy with a blue overol, and a red T-shirt on it. Now thanks to the incursion of TvC the Wii is having more attention from “SRK” community and even other ones as “smashboards” hopefully this will make the game more attrative to SRK.
What Do you guys think… is the Wii a worthy console to buy for its fighting games or not?
Note: the same thread is under general discussion, please don’t reply that one my bad.
