Master Fighter VI

LAST UPDATED: 02/23/07

 

 

 

Master Fighter VI -- officially titled Master Fighter VI' -- is not a whole lot different from all the Street Fighters and Master Fighters that precede it. One difference from previous releases is that Master Fighter VI makes an effort at extending the length of the 1-player mode. It does this by not only including more of the original Street Fighter characters, but also by having you fight the same characters a second time, only with each challenger having a different name and clothes. In the case of Blanka, who becomes Animal, he is made totally neon green the second time around.

The last Master Fighter?

 

Master Fighter VI is developed by Yoko Soft, not necessarily from scratch but more likely building on the company's other games in the Master Fighter series. With Master Fighter VI, Yoko likely believed it had finally mastered the game, inputting everything it could to be truly enjoyable, including points, a time clock, continues, and an ending that reads: "Congratulation".

A humble ending to your travels across the globe.

 

Among my favorite name changes for the second fight with the same character is E. Honda, who becomes Daiwoo. Auto rivalry, anyone? Obviously the developers of some of these characters had cars on their mind. Guile becomes Car upon the second fight with him, and Balrog becomes Carlock. Another of my favorites is Dhalism, who becomes Earsy. The name isn't what gets me, it's the clothing. His clothing in the second fight is neon pink, and with the change in color to his necklace it's almost as if he's wearing a pink bra -- drag queenish.

The back of the box reads: "All of the fierce wrestlers in the world assemble in here where is the place that every wrestler long for. There have the actual wrestlerly virtue, wrestlers harden their bodies not only to break through the most limit of stamina that the body can arouse but also to compete with others to be a winner or a loser on the platform of contest in the contries of the world. The wrestlers harden stand each other by giving challenge incessuatly, they don't care about what result they would get even though they could be head broken and bleeding. They combat with their opponeuts in very fierce stunt for the wrestling champion of the world. Let's fight!"

 

Because people are uninformed, they often don't realize that Master Fighter is, in fact, Street Fighter. So, it's possible to get Master Fighter for about half the price of Street Fighter. But when it comes to a boxed pirate, like Master Fighter VI, it's likely the game would sell for $40 or more.
