The Video "Game"

1. These characters sure looked different back then
2. The summoning is still incomplete
3. A console-exclusive fighting game
4. Until recently, that is. Still, it was never in arcades.
5. The main villain's gender was lost in translation
6. Touch of death combos? How about touch of double death?

Guilty Gear?
That's it!

1. These characters sure looked different back then

I had Dr. Baldhead/Faust in mind for this at first, but Potemkin had a pretty drastic redesign later as well.

2. The summoning is still incomplete

In Zato's stage, there are three hooded figures floating over a pentagram. In Guilty Gear X, that stage now has a chained up giant who must have been summoned by them.

3. A console-exclusive fighting game
4. Until recently, that is. Still, it was never in arcades.

It only came out on the PlayStation originally, and was rereleased on modern platforms last year.

5. The main villain's gender was lost in translation

Justice is referred to as "he" in the English version, presumably because her gender wasn't specified in Japanese and the translators had to guess.

6. Touch of death combos? How about touch of double death?

Every character has an instant kill move that wins the whole game if it hits - both rounds.

7. More Queen references than a Yasumi Matsuno game

The main character is Sol Badguy, real name Frederick, with "ROCK YOU" on his headband. May is named after Brian May, as well.

8. You maniacs! You blew it up!

In Sol's stage, you can see the remains of the Statue of Liberty, like in Planet of the Apes.

I wasn't sure, but I couldn't think of any other fighting games with Queen references, and i vaguely remembered reading somewhere about the confusion with Justice's gender.

Anyway, I went recently, so if anyone wants to go next they can have my turn.

EDIT: in retrospect i should have waited for someone else to guess the correct answer, but the urge to go "OH! OH! I KNOW THIS ONE" is too strong.
