Rank #18: STAGE 59: Final Fight

Podcast cover

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 gained worldwide success! With various ports, 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. With the series 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. __________________________________________________________ Complete Track Listing available On the Official Nostalgia Road Trip Website over at: https://nostalgiaroadtrip.com/2018/08/stage-59-final-fight-tribute/ (Don't blame me, blame the Soundcloud text limit) Special Shout-out to Rusty Shackles for permission to use his Final Fight piece for this episode’s Cover art *Official site: http://tabletopfetus.com/ *Twitter: @rusty_shackles *Tumblr: https://paletteswapblog.tumblr.com/ Outro track Provided by THE MAD GEAR That track and full album available digitally on BANDCAMP https://themadgear.bandcamp.com/ FINAL FIGHT MUSIC VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d_AqU7lJIAw Edgar Velasco: @MoonSpiderHugs www.patreon.com/nostalgiaroadtrip
