Unreleased Nintendo NES 'Fighting Simulator World Champ' Gets Reproduction Run

Unreleased-Nintendo-NES-Fighting-Simulator-World-Champ-Gets-Reproduction-RunIn 1991 Japanese developers Culture Brain released their latest entry in the Hiryuu no Ken series on the Famicom, better known as Flying Warriors in North America. Although Hiryuu no Ken Special: Fighting Wars was scheduled to be released on the Nintendo NES under the new name Fighting Simulator World Champ, it sadly ended up as yet another cancelled video game.

Fighting Simulator World Champ plays out as an interesting mix of both the fighting and wrestling video game genres. With a selection of special moves and grapples to master, it's a fairly technical game given its 8-bit limitations

Several decades later, a duo of collectors have obtained a prototype cartridge containing the game and have begun releasing their very reproduction run of the game. With each and every cartridge built using brand new parts, those interested can secure one of the 150 copies for $110 including worldwide shipping.
