Fighting Game Locations In Real Life

Many fighting games take place all over the world. So, to bring those locations to life, game developers often stick pretty close to reality.

If you’ve ever played a fighting game, this is no surprise whatsoever. As pointed out a ways back by fighting game historian Crayfis on the Shoryuken forums (via website SebastianMihai.com) here is a solid job of showing the sources of many iconic fighting game locations.

  • I don’t remember that stage from Capcom vs SNK 2, and I played that game A LOT. Could actually be Capcom vs SNK 1.

    • The stage is from KOF 2001. Either someone photoshoped Ryu and Kyo into the picture, or it’s a MUGEN.

  • THe ‘Capcom vs SNK 2’ one is actually the Italy stage from King of Fighters 2001.
    My guess is that screenshot’s from Mugen.

    SNK were awesome for using real-life locations in backgrounds.

    • One of my personal favorites was the F1 track from KoF97!
      Last Blade had the best backgrounds though!

  • Yep that Capcom vs SNK 2 and Venice’s Rialto Bridge is a stage from KOF2001 (from memory) definitely not from CvS2!
    Looks like MUGEN to me.
