    World Heroes showed up at the Circle K just down the street from where I lived in 1992. I lived in a very small town, so I would go to the Circle K in the middle of the night with a pair of headphones and play the shit out of the Neo Geo 4-slot they had there. It wasn't long before I dominated on World Heroes, and quite honestly it was really easy to beat the computer using Dragon. Then later I got deadly with Brocken against other human opponents. In spite of its rather simplistic design, I have a lot of fond nostalgia feelings for the game now.

    Such a great series and why World Heroes has a permanent spot in Slot 4 of my Neo Geo 6 Slot. I still remember the first time I played it in '92 and everyone in the arcade talking about how this was the Street fighter 2 killer and how Hanzo was the Neo-Geo's "Ryu" and Fuuma was the Neo-Geo's "Ken." Although I like to play World Heroes 2 more, I have great memories for the first one.

    He must be in a different timeline as this doesn't make any sense.


    he spends hundreds on scarves, of course he's a fag and then ChuChu Flamingo preserved the aftermath in a plastic case making sure it wasn't exposed to unstable air
    You're just upset that you're too goddam stupid to understand the games and whiff infinites.

    What's the matter with you? I remember in the arcade people around the game saying that. This is not an argument or discussion, that's what I heard. Jesus Christ

    I still bust out WH2 on the AES, every once in a while. The JPN version is very inexpensive to buy, even today.

    I like how you can return projectiles back to the sender (by pushing back at just the right time). The first time I did it was by accident, lol.

    The first time I played World Heroes was for the SNES. Got a bunch of games from my dad's friend who had a kid that didn't want them anymore. World Heroes was one of the ones in the box and I remember playing it and liking it. The thing that really sold me on the game was how ridiculous and over the top Muscle Power was and his spinning back breaker move taking away like a third of your health.

    What was one of his quotes?

    "You can find me in the dictionary under the word: Ultimate."

    Haha

    A laundromat on 8th Avenue in Brooklyn near the 8th ave station. It was next to a Samurai Shodown machine. So I would see while I played SS.

    I love neo fighting games but WH is pretty far down on the list of my favourite fighting games on the system. Ive never played any of the sequels so maybe there is a huge improvement.

    Has anyone played the World Heroes Anthology disc on PS2? I was thinking about picking that one up, and I'd like to know how the emulation is.

    Oh boy, 25 year? I remember when I was a Kid and Started playing at arcades to a New machine called World Heroes with Kim Dragon: it was a Street Fighter wannabe but so much fun! The attacks were cool, with the Dragon Kick and some characters were amazing (fuuma the "Ken in a Ninja outfit", jeanne and her sword...)

    When WH came out we all thought it was pretty awesome even next to SF. But we were 8 years old and what is there not to love about a game with (then) awesome graphics, great variation of obscure charactera and even better sound effects. Bora!
