- Darkstalkers – Capcom’s monster mash fighter hasn’t seen a proper entry in the series since 1997! We were teased by Yoshinori Ono about the possibilities of an upcoming sequel, but last positive message from him was in 2012. In 2013, Capcom’s new fighting game manager stated: “Darkstalkers Resurrection did not perform as well as we would have liked. You never know what the future may hold, but Street Fighter is definitely not dead. There is nothing Darkstalkers on the immediate horizon for sure.” So… awesome. More Street Fighter.
- SNK vs. Capcom – The Capcom’s Capcom vs. SNK series was very popular when they came out, and SNK had the rights to make two games of their own, but sadly they only made one game, and that was because they were contractually obligated to make one: Snk vs. Capcom Chaos. For what it was, it was pretty fun, and it included characters like Demitri from Darkstalkers! Sadly, the game came out 12 years ago, and I honestly doubt they will make a sequel any time soon, which is a shame.
- Ranma ½: Super-Skill Wild Dance Chapter (Ranma ½: Chougi Rambuhen): I haven’t played the later PlayStation games, but I loved the 2d fighting games from the Super Famicom! By the time the third game came out, the company making them was going out of business, which is a shame because they finally got them sort of right with this one. I would gladly hand over a lot of money in order to play a new Ranma fighter, or even better, a game that’s all about Rumiko Takahashi’s creations: Urusei Yatsura, Ranma, Inuyasha, Rin, etc.
- Rival Schools – The last game, Project Justice, came out on The Dreamcast. THE DREAMCAST! It’s sort of a Street Fighter in High School sort of game, but it had a great amount of depth and some truly amazing characters. In the first game, it even had Sakura from Street Fighter!
- Garou: Mark of The Wolves: This was the last entry in the Fatal Fury series, which I should note is set in a different universe as the King of fighters series, but is in the same universe as Art of fighting, just Art of Fighting took place, and well… maybe I shouldn’t have mentioned any of that? It was a great game, on Dreamcast, that finally was re-released on Xbox 360. If SNK had a bajillion dollars, I have no doubt in my mind that we would see some sort of sequel to this game, but welll… they don’t, so… we wont. Yeah.
I want to give my money to companies, but they don’t seem to want it I guess? Anyways, these are just a couple games that I feel deserve a comeback.
