Unholy Night is a new FG from "ex-SNK staff who worked on Kizuna Encounter and KOF98, 2001 and 2002" on display at yesterday's Hong Kong Retro Game Expo '16.

The really WTF thing about this news is that Unholy Night is for Super Nintendo, and will be available in february 2017 on a 32MB cartridge.

More info (in Chinese, is someone can help...) here.

New Super Nintendo game!

Super Nintendo World

Super Mario Run!!!!

This is pretty cool. I know we've had stuff like Beggae Prince in the past, but is this one of the first times a Japanese developer is making a new retro game for a console?

If they want to make any kind of money this announcement is just a unique way to introduce the game and it will be ported to something current/relevant as well.

Damn, that's straight up badass. Gotta give those guys some props.

People wouldn't buy a SNES game? I would if it was a new game to play. Still got my SNES hooked up to the TV. :D

Bigtime Sega fanboy, and even I dig the SNES.

Will def get this if I can, I love stuff like this. Reminds me of the Watermelon guys and Pier Solar.

How awesome would it be if they struck a deal with nintendo and launched this as a virtual console title?

How's that?

I'm a Genesis fangirl ride or die, and think the SNES is hugely overrated.

But I was just saying this isn't cool to me because of the platform, but the idea. It's not like the recent new Famicom stuff where I wanted them in part because they're for a platform I still adore. Here, their console choice means I would probably own but very rarely play it, yet I still want to support crazy fighting game projects like these coming out.

Mollie, I don't even know you anymore...
:p

If you don't know my dislike/apathy for the SNES then YOU DONT'T REALLY KNOW ME DAD!

Seriously, I hope I'll be able to pre-order this somehow somewhere soon. Especially if it comes in a real cardboard box, Super Famicom-style! (or SNES if they'll do US/EU versions)

Cool, but please also put it on digital download platforms so that people won't have to pay collectors to play this game.
