Capcom, 1989, 2 Player, Side Scrolling Beat 'em up
Final Fight began development as a sequel to the original Street Fighter arcade released in 1987, but the genre was switched from a fighting game to a beat ’em up and the title was changed following the success of Double Dragon.
Set in the fictional Metro City, the player controls one of three characters: former pro wrestler and mayor Mike Haggar, his daughter’s boyfriend Cody, and Cody’s best friend Guy, as they set out to defeat the Mad Gear gang and rescue Haggar’s young daughter Jessica.
Final Fight is fast, full-on and hard! It’s one of our all time favourite arcade games.
