STAGE 59: Final Fight Tribute

A game that originally began development as a sequel to the original Street Fighter , the first Final Fight game had to switch its genre from the original fighting game idea to a beat ’em up and eventually change its Street Fighter 2 moniker following the success of Double Dragon, more importantly Double Dragon II: The Revenge

With various ports of the first installment in almost every video game platform out there, its sequels and its characters making appearances in other Capcom titles, It’s plain to see why the Final Fight series is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to talking about memorable games in Capcom’s legacy.

Although no new final fight games seem to be in the near future, and the series will be celebrating it’s 30th anniversary next year, what better way to celebrate one of my favorite beat ‘em up by sharing the Latest Retro VGM Revival Hour Episode focusing entirely on the amazing music of the final fight series.

And as an added bonus, A special Tribute Music Video has also been made to further show my love and appreciation to one of my favorite games.

so gather your squad and be ready to take on various baddies that stand in your way, because on this day WE TAKE THE FIGHT TO THEM!
