It’s pretty rare that MUGEN (an open source 2D fighting game engine, made in 1999) results in full, unified, cohesive games worth noting — but the fan-made crossover Famicom Fighters is shaping up to be something special.
Currently in development with a surprisingly large team, Famicom Fighters re-imagines the world of 8-bit games with smoother animation and old school 2D game-play. It’ll probably be the only time you’ll see Star Man from NES Pro Wrestling use El Fuerte-like run mix-ups, and its definitely the only time you’ll see him body slam Thonolan from Taito’s Kick Master.

Though still being refined, you can try out the game in the links below, and provide feedback directly to the team through their Twitter.
