Fatal Fury: First Contact

SNK is bringing another NeoGeo Pocket Color game to Switch. Fatal Fury: First Contact, a fighter that originally debuted in 1999, is out today on Nintendo’s console.

Here’s some information about Fatal Fury: First Contact:

Fatal Fury: First Contact is a fighting game that launched for the NeoGeo Pocket Color way back in 1999. It is heavily based around arcade fighter Real Bout Fatal Fury 2, so expect to see newcomers Rick Strowd and Li Xiangfei clash knuckles with Fatal Fury fan favorites Terry Bogard, Geese Howard, and Mai Shiranui. Additionally, you can also play as the Dominated Mind protagonist and Real Bout Fatal Fury 2 hidden boss, Alfred. Fighting game beginners will feel right at home as they duke it out on a single-lane ring. There is also a comeback mechanic in the form of Potential Power.

Features in Fatal Fury: First Contact include a Potential Power comeback mechanic that allows players to unleash an ultra-lethal special move at the brink of death and opportunities to play as the Dominated Mind protagonist and Real Bout Fatal Fury 2 hidden boss, Alfred. The Nintendo Switch’s Tabletop and Handheld Modes are a match made in Fatal Fury heaven as they go hand-in-hand with the game’s single-lane fighting system beautifully.

We also have a launch trailer and message from SNK producer Yasuyuki Oda:

Fatal Fury: First Contact costs $7.99 on the Switch eShop.

A selection of other NeoGeo Pocket Color classics are also available on Switch, including SNK Gals’ Fighters, King of Fighters R-2, Samurai Shodown! 2, and The Last Blade: Beyond the Destiny. SNK says additional SNK classics will be released on the system “soon.”
