So I was browsing Neogeo.com looking for a valuation on my SNK vs Capcom cradfighters 2 cart for NGPC, and I ended up following some links regarding the very rare and as yet unemulated Fight Fever 2.
I ended up navigating to the page of a guy who claimed to have seen and played the Neo Geo prototype and has footgae of the game- it was RELEASED for 3D0 in Korea in 1996.
The guys mission is the intriguing part:
The more relevant part is the three lost Neo Geo fighting games:
Warlocks of Fate
Fight Fever 2
[*]Mark of the Wolves 2: Garou Special:
I and I’m sure most other long-term fighting game players will be aware of MotW2 having been in development. This is the first screens I have seen for it though.
The guy’s quest is sick and I’m 100% sure he will publish media of all the games if/when he gets them (he actually has at least 5 of the 18 now AFAIK)
Fight Fever 2:
Other unreleased fighters:*
Capcom Fighting All Stars:**
You should all know this one
Fighting Bujutsu: Fighting Wu Shu aka Fighting Wu Shu:
Widely reported on database sites as being released, I can see no evidence of it ever being released. No known owners, and someone offering cash for a photocopy of the manual never even got a reply. This game is like a ghost. Funnily enough I actually played this game at a trade show in 1997, either ATEI, ECTS or JAMMA Europe. They also had a beta test in Sega World, Bournemouth UK that I played it on. I thought it was really good and was like a cross between DOA1 (which at the time was arguably the best 3d fighter out there after VF) and VF2.
Primal Rage 2:
OMG new footage!!!***
Pocket Fighter 2: The Revenge of the New Challengers**
Info is not accurate. Game was never released, but definitely exists in some form, somewhere.
This, for me, is along with Sammy vs Capcom the holy grail in terms of actually sitting down and getting to play the game. Doubt it will ever happen but maybe one day the prototype ROM will surface. Like with Primal Rage II and Fight Fever II.
Sammy vs Capcom**
Google it yourself. I can’t be assed.
I’ll update this post with any and all info and media for any UNRELEASED fighters. There is already a very good thread for ‘obscure fighters’ (search for it) and one for shitty games. This is JUST for games that never saw an official, or at least widespread commercial arcade release. Console games are fine too, not that I can think of any.
