Default Card Sagas Wars: Everyone is here (as support, at least) but in gorgeous pixel art

Get it here while the getting is good:
https://cardsagaswars.wordpress.com/



So I just downloaded this Mugen-based fangame made in the spirit of Smash Bros (similar normal attack + special attack buttons + single direction control scheme and everything), but in beauuuutiful, gorgeous pixel art and not constrained by such petty things as "IP rights" or "which character will give us a biggest revenue margin" or whatever.

It is unfortunately unfinished and it will remain that way, but what is there already is nothing to sneeze at - 8 playable characters with 4 more to come soon with movesets perfectly faithful to their original games and TONS of support characters (disclaimer: may not actually be as many, but it sure felt like a lot to me, new surprises keep showing up) from the most varied and even obscure sources:
Wanna see...: (spoiler popped if you want to be surprised by all of them)
  • Earthworm Jim with his puppy-saving bouncing mattress to prevent your oponent from touching ground?
  • Sundown Kid from LaL giving one of his special shots?
  • The Rabbids impeding the oponent while shouting obnoxiously all the time? (wait maybe this one you actually don't XD )
  • Airman not being able to be beaten and literally blowing them away?
  • Alex Kidd subjecting them to a random chance bout of jankenpon?
  • Hatsune Miku to a rhythm game?

You got 'em all, and more!

Freaking beautiful, impressive and for free, the only cost being the sadness of knowing it'll never be completed.

...and yeah, the ladies' selection of playable chars is currently a bit frownable upon, but at least the next update will include Both Namco Valkyries & (power suit) Samus.

That character list really dates the hell out of the game.

Sounds like another team, Ikemen, is planning on supporting the game going forward. There's already an online versus version:



Here's a link to what looks like the more or less official version going forward, though it doesn't have the second batch of characters yet: http://mugenfreeforall.com/topic/349...kemen-ver-01a/

Also, played some as Soma, and I approve.

And on the same day I made the thread, the final update goes live:



I have been playing this and watching matches a whole lot of time and still new support characters keep appearing. I read there are 100 of them apparently?

And Lenneth comes with her own Einherjar assists too, so things can get hectic quick.
But the beauty of all these sprites, backgrounds, man...

And the Crisis Cards, this game's Ultimate SDM Ultra Combo Whatchamacallit, are a sight to be seen.
See a sample here (and X's is one of the weaker ones):
