Rakuga Kids was a Konami-published 2D fighting game for the N64… and a surprisingly solid one, at that.
The art style is pretty rad, being one of the first games to go with a stylish hand-drawn crayon look à la Yoshi’s Island. It more than deserves some gif treatment, so you’ll have to indulge me a bit here.
Like most fighting games released after roughly 1996, Rakuga Kids has super combos. The one seen above is the primary one of Astronots, who seems to kind of be the game’s ‘face’, more or less. Its Ryu or Terry or Morrigan or whatever. Nothing special, perhaps, but that attack sure is.
