Game description: The All Star Kakutou/All Star Fighters is a fighting game mashup of notable characters within the simple series franchise including the likes of Reiko Mizusaki, Riho and Makoto Futaba as well as Aya from the OneeChanbara series among other notable characters of the different Simple 2000 Series games up to this game's release. There a variety of different modes to play in this game, including Single Mode/Arcade Mode, VS Mode, Arcade Mode, Time Attack, Practice Mode.
Overall, this is a bizarre and 'quirky' fighter but its story (and characters) probably wasn't meant to be taken seriously, though some bit fun of fun (and complexity) can be had from the game and its mechanics - if you're looking for something different in a fighter (i.e. not Street Fighter, Tekken, King of Fighter, Virtua Fighter,...) then this might be worth getting... especially if you're on a budget!
