On September 24th, 1992, SNK launched its second fighting game series in the form of Art of Fighting. Originally pitched as a prequel to the iconic Fatal Fury, the game introduced genre elements like its drainable spirit gauge, graphical sprite scaling, and super attacks.
To celebrate its recent anniversary, SNK has shared some fresh artwork from inhouse illustrator Tomohiro Nakata.
Today marks the 30th anniversary for the 1st game in the 100 MEGA SHOCK series, ART OF FIGHTING, which launched Sept 24, 1992!
In celebration, we have released a new drawing by SNK illustrator Tomohiro Nakata!
