The original Final Fight was followed by two sequels for the SNES: Final Fight 2 (1993) and Final Fight (1995). The original game had a parody titled Mighty Final Fight, released for the NES and featured childlike versions of the original Final Fight characters. Final Fight Revenge was a spinoff that was a competitive 3D fighting game for Sega's Titan arcade hardware in 1999, which was followed by a home version of Sega Saturn in Japan only. A 3D sequel titled Final Fight: Streetwise was released in 2006 for the PlayStation 2 and Xbox. Since Final Fight Streetwise, the series never saw the light of another day, but it's characters yet remained in the Street Fighter and Vs. Capcom titles.
Like in RE, there are puzzles to complete in order for players to succeed. Many of the locked doors in the facility uses a D.D.K. (digital disk key) system in the which the player must decrypt the password required to gain access by inserting a code disk and an input disk. There are also many branching points in which the player must decide in which Regina must choose between the often-contrasting advices of her comrades Gail and Rick.
Dino Crisis was successful that it spawned two sequels: Dino Crisis 2, which Regina is on a mission to Edward City after a major anomaly has caused the whole city to be transported back in time to the era of the dinosaurs, along with all the human inhabitants. Regina is sent on a rescue mission with her new ally Dylan Morton, who has a strange connection to the events on the island. The player's control switches between Regina and Dylan at specific points in the game. And there is Dino Crisis 3, which enemies are not real dinosaurs, but mutations created by DNA extracted from various dinosaur species. A spinoff was released in 2002 for PS2 called Dino Stalker.
Power Stone was so successful that it spawned a sequel with new characters and an adventure mode. Power Stone 2 was the only sequel but when the Dreamcast went under, so did the Power Stone's survival. However on the PSP version you can purchase the Power Stone Collection from the PlayStation Network. Power Stone also spawned an anime series which lasted for only 26 episodes.
Breath of Fire
The success of Breath of Fire spawned four different sequels: Breath of Fire II (1994), Breath of Fire III (1997) on the PlayStation, Breath of Fire IV (2000), and finally for the PlayStation 2, Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter (2003). In a December 2008 interview with gaming website 1UP.com, Capcom's former Head of Production Keiji Inafune stated the Breath of Fire series would be put on hiatus due to the company's lack of staff and an increasingly competitive role-playing game market, stating "There are currently no plans on making a new Breath of Fire game. Apart from that, regarding RPG titles, they are very popular in Japan, but only certain RPG titles sell so Capcom doesn't really need to even consider making these titles as an option."
The first Onimusha game spawned sequels and spinoffs such as: Onimusha 2: Samurai's Destiny, Blade Warriors, Tactics, Demon Siege and it's last game Dawn of Dreams. Another series with great potential, yet gone from this world.
The first Dead Rising game is memorable for it's plot similar to George A. Romero's Dawn of the Dead, and it's Resident Evil reference "Jill's Sandwiches", a tribute to the famous quote from the first game "You were almost a Jill Sandwich." Not only that, players were even capable of obtaining Mega Man's suit.
The original game was a commercial success that it spawned a sequel in 2010: Dead Rising 2. The second game introduced a new protagonist named Chuck Greene, in the fictional casino town of Fortune City, Nevada, to take part in Terror Is Reality, a controversial sports entertainment game show where contestants kill zombies for money and fame. Chuck needs the prize money to buy Zombrex (a daily medication that suppresses the zombification process) for his daughter Katey, who was bitten by her zombified mother during a previous outbreak in Las Vegas. While backstage after the show, the show's supply of zombies is released; Chuck rescues Katey and makes his way to an emergency shelter, which is sealed after their arrival. Raymond Sullivan (the only security guard to reach the shelter alive) is initially reluctant to let the infected Katey in, but Chuck promises to keep her supplied with Zombrex until the military arrives in three days.
Dead Rising 2 also had multiplayer and players could manufacture their own weapons at various points in the game by collecting items and combining them together in maintenance rooms scattered across the game map. The player also has the ability to unlock "combo cards" that reveal weapons that can be combined together. Such combinations include the "Hail Mary," a hand grenade duct taped to a football, "Dynameat," a stick of dynamite duct taped to a piece of meat, the "Paddlesaw," two chainsaws duct taped to a kayak paddle, and "Spiked Bat" which is a baseball bat with nails hammered through the item. Like the first game, boss fights are represented by 'psychopaths', people who have either been driven insane by the zombie outbreak or are taking advantage of it to fulfill their cruel desires.
Viewtiful Joe is divided into seven stages, or "episodes", interspersed with storyline cutscenes and bookended by an opening and ending cinematic. The setting is divided between Earth, or the real world, and "Movieland", the game's fictional world of films. The plot begins in a movie theatre on Earth in which the game's central character Joe and his girlfriend Silvia are watching a tokusatsu drama starring the aged superhero Captain Blue. The movie's antagonist, having seemingly defeated Captain Blue, suddenly reaches out of the screen and abducts Silvia, taking her into Movieland. Joe is likewise picked up and taken into Movieland by Captain Blue's giant mecha. Inside the movie, Joe must rescue Silvia from the evil Jadow, the game's organization of villains. To help him, Captain Blue entrusts him with a V-Watch, a device Joe can use to transform into a superhero upon saying the word "henshin." Joe promptly does so, inventing his own catchphrase: "Henshin-a-go-go, baby!"
Viewtiful Joe spawned three sequels: Viewtiful Joe 2, Red Hot Rumble, and Double Trouble. Red Hot Rumble was based on the anime series, 2 took place after one, and Double Trouble! was the first one to go on the Nintendo DS. Another game ended before it's time.
God Bless and Play Hard Gamers!
