A team of ex-SNK staffers are working on a one-on-one fighter for the SNES called Unholy Night: The Darkness Hunter. Yes, you read that right, the SNES.

The project has passed under the radar somewhat, and only came to light thanks to a recent Facebook post regarding the game's playable debut at the Hong Kong Retro Game Expo. The title was demoed on original hardware complete with Capcom Fighter Power joysticks.


The guys behind this venture - now known as Foxbat Corporation - apparently worked on Kizuna Encounter, King of Fighters 98, King of Fighters 2001 and King of Fighters 2002 during their time at SNK, a company famous for its one-on-one brawlers.

Unholy Night will come on a 32MB cartridge - a tiny amount of storage by modern standards, but massive for a SNES game. You can see more screenshots on the game's official site.
