THE EYE OF TYPHOON / FIGHT FEVER 2

by VICCOM

NEO GEO MVS NGM-099

DETAILED DESCRIPTION:

The Eye of Typhoon is the second unreleased fighting game in the NEOGEO proto game library. Korean game developer Viccom, with assistance from SNK, put together a vastly improved fighting game over their first effort; Fight Fever. Typhoon has more characters, better graphics, and an amazing heart and soul. It was scheduled for release in 1996.

Viccom was a Korean game developer that only released one game for the NEOGEO, Fight Fever. The game was mostly limited to release in the Korean market. As a result, Fight Fever is one of the most scarce NEOGEO cartridges manufactured for the system. With such a limited market, perhaps this was the reason why it was ultimately decided to cancel the NEOGEO release of The Eye of Typhoon. The PC Computer & Panasonic 3DO versions however, did get released.
