Masters of Teräs Käsi
Imagine what you would do with the concept of a fighting game based on Star Wars. Probably something involving lightsaber duels? Basically, you'd invent Jedi Knight. Well, Masters of Teräs Käsi is not Jedi Knight. It's Tekken with some Star Wars characters thrown in, including Luke, Vader, Boba Fett, Leia, Han, and Chewie. To justify characters who aren't Jedi fighting on equal footing it invented Teräs Käsi, a hand-to-hand fighting style that is apparently a hard counter to someone with magic powers swinging a laser sword at you. It also invented new characters, so that fan favorites could fight alongside unknowns like Arden Lyn and Hoar. All that effort, and in the end, it was still the kind of two-and-a-half-D fighter where everyone spams the spinning low kick.
