Sailor Moon S is unique because of the ways it seems to resemble so many fighting games of the time; the life bars, animation, sound effects all seem reminiscent of Street Fighter II, and a lot of the gameplay elements seem the same, such as light and heavy hits, throws, special moves, supers, and chip damage.

Sailor Moon Fighter S

Introduction

Super S could be considered as a shameless cash grab due to the lack of new content, its changes in sound direction and nerfed gameplay overall compared to its predecesssor. This hack intends to fix most of its flaws so that it feels like a worthy follow-up.If you're a Sailor Moon fan but not into fighting games, don't worry, the game has a built-in 'Auto' mode which allows you to perform special attacks easily with shoulder pads.Now pick the best senshi and take the lead role!

Game modes

Here is a list of the changes made to various game modes:

Neptune, Uranus, Pluto and Saturn were never intended to be played in story mode. Fighter S corrects that, new dialogs and ending portraits were made for the occasion.

Requirements for ending credits are now:

  • Characters : Super Sailor Moon or Super Sailor Chibimoon
  • Difficulty : Normal or Hard
  • Timer : On

Tournament:

Tournament mode has been left untounched for the most part besides translation. Indeed, each character has their own ending dialog sequence with Tuxedo Mask. Note that extra characters cannot be selected in this mode.

Practice:

Desperation is listed along specials moves upon hitting START button.

You can now change dummy settings by holding any button when unpausing (works as Player1 only)

For instances :

> if you hold 'UP' then press 'START' to unpause, Player2 will continuously jump until you pause again.

> if you hold 'DOWN' and 'B' then press 'START' to unpause, Player2 will crouch and attack until you pause again.

Holding R, L or Select activate special moves.

Added a few BGM tracks.

Versus / Versus CP:

Formerly known as '1P vs 2P' or '1P vs COM'.On player select screen, press L, R or START for alternate palettes. Press A, B, Y, X for default palette (applies to most game modes in fact) During fights, hit counter records actual hits and chip damage as well.

*New* Versus S / Versus S CP:

This is a KOF style 3 vs 3 mode basically : choose a team of 3 characters to battle against the other player. Life meter is not replenished between fights thus low health characters can use their desperation move right at the start of the next round. You must be careful not to let that happen or be ready to face the consequences.

Controls

Gameplay is identical to Sailor Moon S and Sailor Moon Super S (same engine)

The hack is provided as an IPS (international patching system) file that must be applied to a ROM file. To patch the ROM file, you also need to get a patcher (such as LunarIPS) The hack runs properly on ZSNES, SNES9X, Higan/BSNES so there's a good chance it works on other emus as well.

Sailor Moon is a video game released in Japan in the 90s, mainly following the story of the manga-series. By 1998 twenty games were already released, with the first game being on the market in 1993. Each of the game had impressive sales, between 200.000 and 300.000 copies. They were only released in Japan, but was also present in France in 1994, thanks to Angel, the game developer. Though the manga-series are very popular all over the world, the games are difficult to find in any other country.

The early Sailor Moon games were side-scrolling fighters, while the last ones were unique puzzle games and even versus fighting games. Sailor Moon: Another Story was a game to stand out, being the only role-playing game in the series. Chibi Moon and Sailor Moon are the only two playable characters in some of the games.

The game were mainly released on Super Farmicon, while the first side-scroller was made available for Sega Mega Drive/Genesis. Two other side-scrolling adventure games were made available for Game Boy, and also another game for Game Gear. The first versus fighting game was published for the 3DO, but remained not-so-popular due to the fact that it was only available in Japan. The 3DO device was only sold in Japan, and downloading the game from the internet while being somewhere else wasn't useful. There are also fighting games released for Sega Saturn and PlayStation.

The first Sailor Moon game was released in 1993, and was a beat 'em up arcade game for Super Nintendo Entertainment System. The player controls one or two of the five heroines, each of the characters having their own set of skills. There are five different stages, at the end of each one being a boss the player has to fight and defeat in order to advance to the next level.

Throughout the game the character has to find different bonuses. To pick them, the player will have to stand over them and press the attack button. Food items increase health, but some of the will damage your health as well. Roses will totally refill your life bar. Items such as the star will give you more lives.

If the game is set on easy mode, only the first two levels are available to play. The five heroines are Sailor Moon, Sailor Mercury, Sailor Mars, Sailor Jupiter and Sailor Venus. Each of them has different skills and attacks.

The game was very popular back when released, probably also thanks to the increased popularity of the series. Unfortunately it was mainly released in Japan and only by downloading the ROMs you could have played in in the US or Europe. Even so, the game was a hit on the market and sold millions of copies. The game received very good feedback on the internet as well, with 29 users on GameSpot rating the video game with an overall feedback of 7.3 out of 10.

Overall rating: 7
