Fighting Hero III is a fighting game for the Famicom, created by NTDEC and released in 1993. While ostensibly a sequel to Fighting Hero, the two games share little in common besides their genre.

Gameplay

Gameplay screenshot.

The game is a fairly typical one-on-one fighting game. It appears to use a similar engine to Rex Soft's fighting games, with slow walking, quick jumping, and generally choppy animation. The A button punches and the B button kicks, with both having different animations if the player holds Back or Forward while attacking. It is possible to throw by pressing Back and A while close, and blocking is performed by holding Back.

The cast consists of 10 original characters. Each character has two duplicates with different names and colors. In single-player, the player always uses the original, and the computer always uses the first duplicate.

Much like the first Fighting Hero, the game has a high difficulty level that cannot be changed, although the player is given nine continues.

Trivia

  • If the player loses exactly 4 matches (so there are 6 credits remaining) and presses Start when the continue timer is at 6, this will enable the ability to perform special moves with Select, A+Select, or B+Select.
  • Curiously, there is no way to pause the game without using an emulator.
