Episode 67 – No Nostalgia Fighters

HADOKEN! GET OVER HERE! C-C-C-C-COMBO BREAKER! All of these are sounds of the arcade and fighting game scene in general. But what about the fighting games that we didn’t play to death? On this episode of XVGM Radio, we dive into the music from fighting games to which we have zero nostalgia. From heavy discussions about balls..er…ballz, Alice Deejay comparisons, to the surprising lack of memories from giants like Sega, SNK and Konami, this is an episode full of monster tunes of an eclectic nature. New Jack Swing, 90s techno, jazz and funk are all represented. Get ready for a VGM tournament of which these two hosts haven’t attended as our No Nostalgia series continues with No Nostalgia Fighting Games!
