Is it possible to make a fighting game with a great story?

And if so, how? And has one already been made?

It's all about Mortal Kombat 9 and BlazBlue :toocool:

Fate/Unlimited Code had a good story, but that's because it was basically Fate/Stay Night's story. With a fighting game attached.

The Fatal Fury and KOF games. And, before SF4, the Street Fighter main games. Also: Mortal Kombat. Maybe Guilty Gear too. Daruka Tenshi has a nice cyberpunk story to it too.

Yes, but you need to have a writer there from the get-go, and you have to make storylines work within the context of one on one and two on two fights. Most writers are avoidant of this, and most fighting games as a result have ridiculous stories attempting to explain it all. If I had to pick a game that would have a good story for a fighting game, I'd say Karateka. Same goes for Infinite Blade. They aren't necessarily street fighter, but are effectively fighting games in their own right.

Mortal Kombat 9 has the best story mode of any fighter I've played.

I liked the story with Marvel vs Capcom 3. Soul Calibur has a lore enriched story. Mortal Kombat....could do better.

Soul Caliber has a reasonably good plot. And Smash Bros Brawl deserves credit for theirs, given that the game has no dialogue.

BlazBlue's story is a bit cliche, but it's enjoyable for what it is.

It was an RPG, then an anime, then a fighting game.

Yes its possible, but no on plays fighting games for stories. No one outside of Namco has expanded their fighting game introductions into a proper story like Soul Calibur. King of Fighters tries to, but they only do it to introduce a new batch of characters to the roster.

Why bother?

Soul Calibur kind of tries, but then they have to come up with justifications for why you're suddenly having one on one combat in an arena. I'd rather they didn't pretend.

I like what I do now, which is play SC when I just want to kick a lot of ass and then go to an RPG (admittedly real-time fighting, and lately it's all been platformers like Assassin's Creed and Prototype) when I want a story.

I liked the story that they had in Chronicles Of The Sword that was in Soul Calibur 3.

So yes you can make a fighting game with a good story.

I feel like mortal kombat 9 did a great job twisting the story that was already pretty good
