Retroism Unholy Night: The Darkness Hunter is now available for purchase to be played on the Super Nintendo Entertainment Console. Originally a Kickstarter project that failed to meet its goal of $52,500, Unholy Night will be the first game released for the SNES since Frogger launched on the system in 1998. Retroism, a haven for classic games, picked up the game back in April for release after the retailer was listed under the game’s pre-order page on Amazon.
Retroism Unholy Night: The Darkness Hunter is a 2D fighting game that was developed by previous employees of SNK, who worked on such titles as Samurai Showdown and The King of Fighters games. Unholy Night features a story mode that focuses on the six playable monster hunters that have committed to a life of ridding the world of its most horrendous creations. Each fighter has eight special moves and super moves that rely on a three-level meter. When a fighter reaches low health, the character will gain certain bonuses to help balance the battle.
You can purchase Retroism Unholy Night: The Demon Hunter from Amazon for $49.99 and, as of yet, there is no word of a digital release. If you can’t locate your SNES in the meantime, check out some of the gameplay in the video below.
