Nothing is better than grabbing a bunch of friends and playing some video games all night long. All of you guys are having the time of your lives… until your so-called friends start to look more like enemies. What started out as laughing and joking has now turned into screaming and threats. Your face turns as red as the Red Shell that just hit you and your friend’s face turns as blue as the Blue Shell he just threw as you strangle him for jeopardizing your victory. Soon the games become battles and a war has just begun.

Another year, another plethora of juggle combos, game of footsies and throwing turtles (not literally, unless of course they’re of the anthromorphic kind). When it came to fighting games, 2011 offered sequels, updates to classic titles and, of course, updated versions of Capcom titles.
What’s in store for 2012? We take a look at some of the new titles to hit this year in Fighting Forecast - Round 1.
