I'm pretty sure most of y'all know about this, but did you know that the "Street Fighter" series was the FIRST fighting game franchise to have a shitty start?

Wow I actually didn't know that. Another thing is that apparently the maker of Street Fighter 2 said that combos were an accidental glitch, but he liked it and made it into a core component of the game.

Did ya know that the classical SEGA Mega Drive/Genesis game, Fatal Labyrinth, had a Master System demake in the year, 1991?

P.S. That Master System demake was named, Dragon Crystal

Did ya know that the development of the SEGA Mega Drive/Genesis masterpiece, Sonic the Hedgehog, actually begin in the 1988? And Sonic's girlfriend was originally a human named after a famous female singer?

Most of us know this piece of video game trivia by now! ^

But staying on topic, did you know that the Genesis/Mega Drive game, Pingas Guy's Mean Bean Machine, is a reskin of a Japanese exclusive puzzle game known as Puyo Puyo? :idea:
But I'm pretty sure some of y'all SEGA veterans in the SMBX community knew that already.

Yeah, apparently it used the final boss music of Puyo Puyo too.
That same song also reappeared in Sonic Mania.

Here's something interesting for you SMBX members who are fighting game fans:

Did ya know that the 1991 "Hard as balls" SNK fighting game, Fatal Fury 1: King of Fighters, was created by the same creator of Street Fighter*? Learned that from the new VCDecide video on YouTube! ^^"


*Before you ask, it's the creator of the very first Street Fighter game, not the whole series! :roll:

This may come in no surprised to some of you SMBX who were alive in the 90's, but did you know Earthworm Jim* was voiced by the guy who voice Homer Simpson? Well it's true!


*Before you ask, not in the games, in the animated series from 1994!

You sure have a lot of cool video game facts. Did you know that the voice actress of Kirby didn't even know about Terry being in Smash, but she worked it out while voicing Kirby Terry's moves?

Did you knew that Shigeru Miyamoto was involved in Plok? He analysed the game and later than that he made a list where it basically says that he wanted plok to be better than sonic, but not to be better than mario
I remember it so you don't have to? i guess...
