The fighting game renaissance continues with some stellar releases in the coming years.
It’s hard to believe that there have been so many great fighting games in recent years. Soulcalibur 6, Mortal Kombat 11, Tekken 7, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Samurai Shodown have been the real standouts. However, that list continues to expand, thanks to both recent and upcoming releases. Let’s take a look at 12 worthwhile fighting games for 2020 and beyond.
Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition
Street Fighter 5 is in the best possible place now following the Champion Edition’s launch on PS4 and PC. And that’s keeping in mind the latest network patch and communication surrounding it. Still, content-wise, it has almost every piece of additional content released thus far – a roster of 40 characters, over 200 costumes, 34 stages, and so on. Gameplay-wise, Gil and Seth are incredibly fun to play while offering some great depth. The netcode still isn’t the greatest but it’s also improved from launch (depending on who you ask, of course).
