STAGE 59: Final Fight Tribute

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
