MUGEN Battle Zero: The 2D fighting game we have always dreamed about is finally here

Ridiculously awesome

MUGEN is an open-source fighting game that basically allows you to make your own Street Fighter game. You can import characters from other games to make impossible fights like you've seen in hand-made sprite hacks like Scorpion vs. Ryu. Check out our previous Mugen coverage for a video of it in action. We don't know who submitted this, but the generous hardcore gamer left this note:

This is my very first mugen creation, created from almost four months of study and difficult trial and error. I've decided to share my masterpiece with all Underground Gamer Mugen Fans:

  • Over 100 Stages - I've selected only the best places to fight!
  • Full 100 Song Soundtrack - From countless albums and OST's, proven to keep your battles intense!
  • Over 150+ characters! - From almost every fighting game ever made
  • Rare Characters! - Perfect for any avid mugen collector, youwill find many rare fighters in this game!
  • Easy Setup! Drag the mugen folder anywhere onto the desktop, click into the folder,and double click the Mugen All Characters Battle Zero.exe, it's simple! *Warning, this file is over 1 Gig, but I put half a year of work into it, so I assure you with all my heart. It's worth it.*
  • So there you have it - Mugen Battle Zero is floating around on the internet somewhere. The best MUGEN torrent with over 800 characters appears to be active, as shown in the MUGEN video below.

     

    That's a lot of video game fighting characters, and some funny guest appearances!

     

    Expect bugs

    Like many independent hobby projects you're going to need to put in some time to tinker and tweak the configuration settings before MUGEN is stable for your specific system. A great resource to fix MUGEN's common problems is this forum, which has a number of utilities and stock configuration files to get the job done.

    Though the game lacks polish and is incredibly unbalanced its a hell of a lot of fun! Great for a LAN party or just a bizarre spectacle on its own.

    Rick and Morty is like reverse Archer. Instead of everyone being insanely quick-witted, everyone stutters, pauses and repeats themselves a lot.

    No spoilers or anything, but the MGS V troll is amazing. I went from concerned to laughter in a matter of minutes.

    Not saying that the "augment your pre-order" announcement caused me to fall ill, but the timing seems like too much of a coincidence.

    Stealth in Payday 2 gets infinitely easier once you get the Control Freak perk.

    Could you stop calling Metal Gear Solid V Kojima's "swan song?" He's not retired, for crying out loud.

    Seems rather excessive for a 3ds game. (3ds xl for scale) [img]http://i.imgur.com/DwOtP0s.jpg?1[/img]

    Tried the stealth approach for awhile, time to switch things up. *plants C4 everywhere* I'll probably toss one on the poor schmuck that delivers my copy of MGS V. For taking so long.

    So the 3DS Dragon Quest VII remake is coming to mobile in Japan, so there's a chance that version will get ported over here. Not ideal but if we get it at all I'll be happy!

    Put down the deposit for my new car, will probably be able to pick it up on the weekend. Insurance is pretty good too, sub £1000 which is excellent. Kinda. My mum tried to reverse in 5th gear. She drives an automatic. What a noob. :P
