The transition of fighting games to modern 3D engines on PC has opened the door to all kinds of mods for these games; some of the most interesting are those that change how the game looks through the manipulation of an engine’s lighting and shaders.
This next set of mods from nded may be some of the most striking yet. Using the popular graphics modding program ReShade, nded has made both Street Fighter V and Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite look as if they were drawn with pencil and ink on someone’s notebook.
The graphical mod, which you can see in the videos below, is far from perfect – certain effects such as hitsparks, interfaces — and in Street Fighter V‘s case, projectile moves — aren’t visible with the mod. That said, the fact that both games run on an engine (Unreal Engine 4) that other fighting games use opens the door to those fighting games getting similar mods in the future.
