fr The Eye of Typhoon - Tsunami Edition

The Eye of Typhoon - Tsunami EditionThe Eye of Typhoon - Tsunami Edition is available now for MVS. The Eye of Typhoon is a Korean fighting game created by Viccom (Fight Fever) that was supposed to be released on NeoGeo in 1996 (it was showcased at AOU 96). Alas, the game would only be released on 3DO and PC and only in Korea. As the prototype of the MVS version still did not surface, the French team Balek (Johnny 16bit & OzzyOuzo) reprogrammed the game on NeoGeo using the assets of the PC and 3DO versions. The game being reprogrammed from scratch, many improvements and touches of humour were made (such as a farting character, a name entry screen with a blond Arnold Schwarzenegger on the Lambada music or interventions of David Hasselhoff, Chuck Norris and Jean-Claude Van Damme). In this game, warriors from around the world are fighting to recover the secret book of Kuk-Cho-Ho-Kwon, a long lost mysterious fighting art. The line-up consists of 12 fighters + 2 hidden playable characters (Powell and Kim Hoon) and a hidden non-playable boss (Mahesvara). Note that Jarkill was Italian in the original version, he is now Belgian in this version, his moves are in French, and he shouts "Godverdomme!" when he loses. The originality of the game is the Typhoon mode, which can only be used once per match and allow the usage of super deadly moves. Team Balek was supposed to release the game in May 2023 on MVS and AES, but brought the release forward to February. This MVS version by Team Balek is the only arcade version available. Needless to say, this Tsunami Edition is not official. The game was sold as a pre-order but a few copies are still available. Check the Discord channel to grab a copy!
