The newness is on! Crap, there’s almost too much newness! Look at all that new stuff and exclamation points! Look closely at that Final Fight background, because that isn’t from the game. I’m not typing all that crap out, and there’s even more (backgrounds, mini-logos, etc.), so go check out the update post. I’m gonna go somewhere and pass out. Pass out from newness.
I usually don’t post my crappy sprite linework before putting the sprite in an update, but I had to explain why I was caught off guard by what I finally noticed in the reference sprites. Look at J’s head. Notice anything… odd?
I’ve been staring at Final Fight sprites for an untold amount of years, but never noticed that J’s bandana is in his standing sprite. I just checked in the Obj. Pattern Test mode in WinKawaks (hold F11 + jump during the warning screen as the rom boots up) and it’s almost 50/50 of whether or not the bandana is there. Personally, I think having that bit of blue adds some excellent color balance. Plus, separating the skin and blond hair tones makes sprites better, IMHO.
J’s face looks too plain in my sprite line work, so I’ll try to fix that along with the crappy arms. I’m not sure if I’ll have enough color space to make a red-haired version of J possible within the 16-color limit, but I’ll try.
the-ankle-rocker said: No one ever talks about how crazy good the music is in the Final Fight series. Well… Let me just say, the music in the Final Fight series is crazy good. Like… It’s crazy. Crazy good.
Truth! I usually only hear about that from people I know who are specifically into music. The only time I’ve seen it go beyond that is when I saw a lot people marking out to Rolento’s USF4 theme, a remake of his original Final Fight track.
The newness is on! New sprites include Mad Gear gang members Poison, Roxy, Axl and Slash, along with the jail-breakers from Taito’s Crime City and the thieves from Golden Axe. Please resist the urge to kick the thieves on your screen in an attempt to get your bottles back.
BTW: the new scratch-made Poison/Roxy sprites (USF4 and Final Fight outfits) have more palettes in the GFX Generators.
Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter (arcade) by Capcom
Cody and Jessica from the Mall Mayhem stage.
"Guy vs. Cody"? Nah! it looks more like "Nike vs. Adidas"! Just check those shoes! ;-)
Street Fighter Alpha/Zero 3 - Final Fight stage!
This is an old image I did as a BG element for a Street Fight image with Poison as main character. It was supposed to be the typical “wanted” poster in a alley, old and decolored by years, since Hugo is no longer part of Mad Gear or a criminal. I remove it because it was a bit distracting and also it could confuse to the reader about his current status with the law. Oh, well, I found it today and I think it looks funny :P I hope you like it :)
You can share my stuff! Thanks :)

Finally some love for Roxy! She deserved to be more than a pallet swap! of Poison! ;-)
Hey Capcom, that car destruction that you call “bonus stage” is not a victimless crime! Poor, poor Bred…! XD
I love these callbacks and references to their classics.
Me (Guy) and Tepid Snake (Haggar) had an online co-op session on Final Fight. We both had the idea of saluting the unsung hero of the game: The barking dog that appears three times in the Bay Area stage.
Now celebrating 14 years of platform jumping, street beatings and pixelated good times, the newness is on!
Today’s update has new sprites of Tyris Flare, the Altered Beast werewolf, Bin and Pin from Dynamite Düx, Airman (Mega Man 2) and Mad Gear’s most irritating knife experts, El Gado and Hollywood. You’ll also see shout outs to Metroidvania, Memoirs of a Virtual Caveman and more in the news post!
