The two stages with the landscape viewed past sunlit stone pillars are of course “inspired” by “the most popular art print of the 20th century,” Daybreak by Maxfield Parrish

and some of his other stuff; that big jar in the first screenshot for instance could be from his Garden of Allah

and the game itself is pretty much based on Technos Japan’s Karate Champ

Giant Bomb has what seems like a pretty thorough gameplay description:

probably gonna be some of the fightman news during evo. I’m hoping arcsys remembers that they said they’d give persona rollback this summer, I kinda want to try that game.

Personally hoping for Tekken 8 but moreso for my arms to finish rehabilitation before anything

With Breakers and Rumblefish getting modern ports I want to see some more off the wall revivals. Like imagine if Asuka 120% Limit Over got a port with rollback.

there’s a new asuka game in development (though we currently have no more information than this), as well as ports of the original to mega drive and switch

I love The Karate Tournament! I’m working on something inspired by it (very slowly). I wanna put it 3D with sidestepping and improved controls.

Samurai Showdown 2019 is getting a rollback patch next year and KOF15 is also getting cross platform netplay, also likely next year.

oh boy, persona 4 is extremely a beta right now. my experience last night was some street fighter v like “getting hit with a full combo in under half a second despite the opponent being in mid-hitstun” stuff, and characters teleporting everywhere. either that, or tons of “failed to connect” messages. matchmaking is completely fucked and laggy, so you have to try and get into player lobbies and hope you can actually get in.

oh how strange… id imagine expanding the playing field like that would have some effect however subtle on balance? idk

some Hugo wall bounce stuff doesn’t work the same? iirc

daaaaamn, even melty promo videos get relegated to the metaphorical bathroom

but somehow Granblue’s announcement of an online tournament series featuring Mike Ross for a game without rollback makes the main stage
