Fighting games/beat em ups like Toshinden?

Postby Verm3 » January 8th, 2019, 4:05 am

I'm a fan of fighting games/beat em ups and the Toshinden games are some of my favourites, so I figured I would ask if anyone has any ideas for fighting games that are similar to Toshinden?

They can be from anywhere in the world for any format, but ideally fairly easy to purchase.

I'm going to recommend Soul Blade for the PS1. I think it was the predecessor to Soul Calibur.

Yep. Soul Blade was the predecessor to Soul Calibur. I've got both of those, though I much prefer Toshinden.

Something I don't like about a lot of fighters is that the characters don't move around very much and often just stand there trading blows. Where as in Toshinden there is a lot of movement that unlike games like Cardinal Syn, actually has a purpose.
