Retro Gaming- Pocket Fighter: (1997)

There were so many cool fighting games during the 1990’s that many people enjoyed specifically in the Street Fighter series.  When Pocket Fighter was released for arcade during the late 90’s there were many people who found this game to be very lighthearted in comparison to many other fighting games in the Street Fighter series.  One of the coolest things about this game included the crossover of characters that featured both Street Fighter and Darkstalkers characters.  Around this time period crossovers were starting to become popular within in the Street Fighter series.  Shortly, before Pocket Fighter was released Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo was released and it had also featured the inclusion of both Street Fighter and Darkstalkers characters in 1996.

The gameplay & graphics for this game had contributed to the replay value of this game .  Another factor that contributed to the replay value of this game included the concept.  Even though there was not much of a plot the creativity involving the gameplay of collecting gems while fighting was fun.  While this game was fun to play for the arcade it awesome to see it get ported for the Sony PlayStation as “Super Gem Fight Mini Mix” in 1998.  It was during this time period where Capcom was very creative with their games and people would hold on to them for a very long time because they were aware of the fact that it would become rare within a few years.  Either way Pocket Fighter was pretty fun classic developed by Capcom that would a nice game to play if you are a casual fan of the Street Fighter series.
