Okay, for a couple of weeks, there’s been something on my mind.
When I was in 7th grade 5 years ago, an avid gamer by that point, me and my brothers owned the GBA game Konami Collector’s Series: Arcade Advanced. On that collection was a very special game called Yie Ar Kung-Fu. Many of you might recognize it as an XBLA title that totally flopped. The GBA version, however included a two-player versus mode(via link cable) where players could select from all of the characters in the game and duke it out.
This is by far one of the best fighting games I have played to this day. The tension, skill, and strategy involved was amazing. The problem I’m having is that this version of the game gets NO exposure. If the fighting game community was exposed to this game, it would be the hypest shit under the sun. Right now I am working on an indie-remake of that experience specifically for the fighting game community to enjoy. I really think this game can make it among the legends like Street Fighter and Dive Kick.
You can still experience the gba versus mode by using the VisualBoyAdvance VBA Link with the gba rom version of the game. I just wanted everyone to know what they were missing out on.
