Hello, I’ve got another episode of CROW BITES for you. This is a series for weird trivia and glitches I’ve encountered in my life of fightin’ gamin’. Last time, we talked about an infinite soul charge glitch in Soul Calibur II. Today, we’re looking at another Namco property that’s a little harder to find information on: Kinnikuman Muscle Grand Prix 2.

Specifically, I wanted to spread my love of its stun-building combo system, and the way it ties into the footsies of its wrestling ring stages. There’s a lot of love put into this odd little Namco fighter, and a worthy case study for the ways you can make a “simple” fighting game have real depth.

SRK’s youtube channel features guides, reviews, odd trivia, and more, all circling the world of the FGC. If that sounds like your bag, be sure to check out our back catalog here!

Hey, I'm just a 3D-head in a 2D-world. I like pretty much all FGC stuff, and I really like hearing about the way people think about games.
