Wouldn't it be great if some of the companies brought back some 2D fighters.

Capcom and Konami have a ton of franchies they could revive.

Think of a 2D fighter rendered in high definition. It would be like watching a living painting. I'm sure there are plenty of techniques that devs could use to make astonishing looking 2D fighters.

I would even take some quasi 2D/3D fighters with Cel shaded graphics.

Can you imagine a new 1080p Samurai Showdown. :shock:

Discuss.

Well there are many games that aren't relatively HD quality but judging from their sprites and artwork, you would think so:

1080p would be a great res to have these at. The charm of the 2d i think is in the massively over the top effects for the moves.

me voted yes :)

2D fighting games? only as downloadable content, but not saling then as if they were "new games" for 60 bucks each, after all is been a while since fighting games brought innovation, with these next-gen proccesors we should be able to start seeing more deep and complex fighting games, games where phisics and where you hit your opponent actually plays a big role in the game.

The problem with 2D fighting game is that there is not so much more that they can offert, but I would mind downloading to my HDD to play
