Mighty Final Fight is a side-scrolling beat-’em-up released by Capcom for the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1993. It is a spinoff of Capcom’s 1989 arcade game Final Fight, which was previously ported to the Super NES. Unlike the original game and its SNES ports, the characters in this edition are depicted in a comical childlike “super deformed” or “chibi” art style. Mighty Final Fight follows the same premise as the original Final Fight. The Mad Gear Gang, the dominant street gang of Metro City, have kidnapped Mayor Haggar’s daughter, Jessica. After Haggar is informed of her kidnapping, he sets out to rescue her along with his two friends: Cody, Jessica’s boyfriend; and Guy, Cody’s training partner. The story is presented in a more comical fashion compared to the original game due to its satirical nature. For example, Belger’s motive for kidnapping Jessica in this version is to force her into marrying him, having become infatuated with her. Gameplay: Unlike the original arcade game, Mighty Final Fight can only be played by a single player. But unlike the SNES ports, all three main characters from the arcade game are present in a single edition. The player can choose between Cody, a street brawler who fights using a self-made martial art combining karate and boxing; Guy, an agile master of Ninjutsu; or Haggar, a former professional wrestler. The three main characters retain almost all of their abilities from the arcade game, with some aesthetic differences.
