Unholy Night: The Darkness Hunter is a new one-on-one fighting game being developed by ex-SNK staff for the Super Nintendo. You read that right. The SNES. It’s not a SNES, retro inspired fighting game coming to Steam, or PlayStation 4, or any other modern platform, it is ACTUALLY coming out as a cartridge for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System.
Information is pretty sparse, but it seems to be developed by a company made up of former SNK developers, who worked on classic titles like Samurai Showdown and The King of Fighters, by the name of Foxbat, and it can be pre-ordered on Amazon. Unholy Night will feature four pretty standard fighting game modes: Story, versus, survival, and practice, and supports up to two players. You can checkout some camcorder footage of a prototype build and some screenshots below:
Unholy Night: The Darkness Hunter will be released June 19 for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System for $49.99 USD. You can pre-order it now on Amazon.
