Hyper Fighting is out there

Apparently, complete-in-box copies of Mr. Anon's and MK's incredibly well-crafted homebrew game "Hyper Fighting" are now out there in the wild, as impressions of the game are starting to pop up here and there. At the time of writing, we have no further info from the team behind this, but it seems that the game won't see a public release due to the obvious copyright dilemma. For now, we can only gaze in awe at the imagery lucky owners of the few existing copies share with the world.



The above photos come from Vectrex Roli. speedyink has even shared a full video review.

it is a really sweet port. the 3d depth is really fun, it works pretty well with the sprites. sound effects and everything are rather impressive. the game really shows what is possible on the VB. i picked up two copies so i could try the VS when the cable is released, but i've since lost interest in spending more money on a second VB. has anyone tried a 2player game, is it any fun?

One really great thing about all this is that what was once just a rumor in Japan in 1995 has now become a reality 20 years later!

Looks very authentic to the "Real" one

Are they selling these any time soon? And will they sell the link cables they're making?

from what i've read, this game will not get a public sale due to copyright worries. a C&D from capcom would end all of the fun rather quickly.

last i read the link cable was still being toyed with. we all expect it to be sold as soon as it is ready.

I think everyone is being a bit too fearful of Capcom and a cease and desist. They haven't stopped the progress of Resident Evil 1.5 restoration and fans have been working on that since 2012ish so I really don't think a home brew street fighter port on a failed widely poorly received console from 20 years ago is something they would worry about.

Even if they did there's not much info about this game out there and whoever made this seems to have went through great lengths to burry the street fighter association going as far as changing the name to hyper fighting, and keep themselves hidden. Watching youtube videos on this game gives mixed information. some people are talking like this was some kind of limited test run while others speak like the game was just a regular release.

There's no consistency and everyone is so fearful of possible legal action from Capcom it seems the story is going to stay that way even on this forum.

It's like something from The X-files. A "deny everything" type conspiracy. Too bad I don't have The Lone Gunmen to help decode this conspiracy

If you are selling anthers parties intellectual property that party is forced to to stop you as otherwise they could loose their copyright. That's why HF is not being sold. There you have your X-File case solved.

It is very easy say people are being too careful if you are not the one who has to fear legal actions. Maybe if you contact the programmers and offer them to sell their game for them while taking all of the risk you can make a release happen.

Not to get too technical, but "Hyper Fighting" isn't exactly a change of name, more like a truncation. The full title of Street Fighter II Turbo was "Street Fighter II' Turbo: Hyper Fighting." Thus, simply the last part of the name has been retained for this version.

Technical translation aside any association of this and street fighter are swept under the rug. The youtube videos say theirs little or no association of this game to street fighter, the videos wouldn't even play music from the game with fear of copyrights, and whoever programmed the game is unknown. Even here everything is hush hush, and there's very mixed things said about the game and any information on it.

Maybe you don“t know, but today you can get even a copyright strike by just showing a still picture (!) of a Zelda character. I got once some issues with one of my older videos where I showed the AtariVox+ speech synthesizer and they didn“t believe me that I "own all the rights" for the video part where that thing was talking.
So I usually try to avoid any original sound or music from any game regardless if it would be a clone of Tetris, Pacman or Street Fighter.

not to go too far off topic, tetris is a story i'm familiar with. i was reporting for a video game site and we got letters from different lawyers. tetris is now trademarked and we couldn't use it in certain contexts. we had to rename and/or pull all associated files from the site.

this game may use an original engine and code, but it is using sprites, sound, music, and IPs without permission. selling it openly would be a pretty bad idea. if a few of these hit public sale i don't think much will happen. but a site selling them in bulk would surly have problems. i've seen paypal/banking sites frozen for far less.

Some unforeseen family related problems have kept me absent from the VB community these past few months. It's great to come back and see this project finished, and to read about new titles in the works on the "mockup" thread.

The game looks very good. Nice to see it getting some well deserved attention.

Oh, I want it so bad! :) What's a nice box, manual and the game itself!
Seriously, is there any (semi)legal way to buy a copy or two? Contact me via manwe@unseen.is please.
Can we motivate the author somehow to release more cartridges?
