I have a tough time reviewing fighting games. There’s not many of a plot, and they tend to all be really identical in their simple mechanics. However, Rabbit is an engaging diversion that doesn’t get many attention, so we consider it’s value showcasing here.

Electronic Arts published Rabbit exclusively in Japan in 1997 for arcades and Sega Saturn. That’s right — Electronic Arts used to put out games exclusively in Japan. A association called Aorn is given credit for development; however, this appears to be a usually diversion it ever released. My guess is that EA combined a feign Japanese association so people over there would give Rabbit a chance.

At this indicate you’re substantially wondering “Why would anyone name a fighting game Rabbit?”. we consider many folks would assume it was a mascot platformer if they hadn’t seen a screenshot. Well, a offshoot in Rabbit is that any impression has an animal suggestion that helps them fight, identical to a “Stands” in JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure. One of a characters has a rabbit spirit, hence a name. But we could play a few matches though saying a rabbit spirit, so it’s still kind of an peculiar pretension choice.

The best partial of Rabbit (besides a pixel art) is a quirky choice of characters. Here are some of my favorites:

Little Eddy

Fighter Name: Little Eddy
Spirit Animal: Peccary (I’d never listened of it either.)

Eddy is a deceptive son of Kim Jong-un and Kim Jong-il. As we can see from his onesie, he’s also a unapproachable member of a adult baby community. When he’s not enormous skulls, Eddy creates his vital as an Elvis impersonator.

Hou-en

Fighter Name: Hou-en
Spirit Animal: Wolf

Hou-en was once an actor in a Chinese opera, though a consistent utterance eventually gathering him insane. Now he’s a veteran Juggalo who murders children with a assistance of his lovable, mentally-challenged pet “Fleabag”.

Egith

Fighter Name: Egith
Spirit Animal: Ox

Egith puts a sass in assassination. He uses income done from murdering people to run an orphanage. I’m severely not creation this up; it’s in a FAQ.

So, if we need another 2D fighting diversion for your Sega Saturn, afterwards Rabbit‘s not a bad choice. It doesn’t have a biggest roster, though differently we consider it’s scarcely as good as any warrior done by Capcom or SNK behind in a ’90s. Now watch me lift a rabbit out of my hat.
