The King of Famicom

Today I believe I might have discovered a clone of myself living in Japan. How else could this video below, combining two gaming elements which I love dearly – The King of Fighters series and retro gaming, be created and executed to such extreme bliss.

Now, I’ve talked about The King of Fighters several times here; probably a bit too much that it’s driven away any readers we have left. (Heck, what am I kidding, we didn’t have readers to begin with.) Anyway, this video, posted by a Japanese YouTube user Bash4208, inserts a creative spin on that 3-on-3 fighting game series by blending in a who’s-who of Famicom (NES) stars. And what better name fitting for such a piece of media than calling it The King of Famicom.

Ooo… I can already feel my knees shake with anticipation. I won’t spoil it for you, oh-no! You’ll just have to check out for yourselves. See if you can guess each character’s respective franchise.

A much grateful thanks to GoNintendo.com for finding this gem.
