Mario Fighters is a next gen fighting game, released way back in 1995. Despite being released over 20 years ago, it was 30 years ahead of its time; it makes the Xbox One's graphics look instantly outdated. However, it used a soundchip with 16 PCM channels, which was considered dated even for the time.

It features extreme violence and gore. It was designed to compete with Sonic the Fighters and Mega Man: The Power Battle.





The game would go on to inspire thousands, if not millions of game franchises, including Halo, Call of Duty, Metal Gear Solid, Fallout, Grand Theft Auto, Horrid Henry: Missions of Mischief, Disney Princess: Magical Jewels and Bully.
