Super Cosplay War Ultra is a superb one-on-one fighting game in the same vein as Fighters Kyodotai, previous fighter from the same design team: Alicuu from Taiwan. Similar to Kyodotai, SCWU sets itself apart from other freeware fighters with excellent gameplay, fluid animations, a staggering number of combos and secret characters, and top-notch graphics. As the name suggests, the fighters in SCWU are cute shrunken-head ("SD" style) anime characters as opposed to the more realistic characters of Kyodotai, so you may want to go back to Virtua Fighter if you find the characters too nauseatingly cute ;)

Like Fighters Kyodotai, SCWU is a big download but it's well worth the wait. The game packs a lot more gameplay than many commercial titles, and will draw you back again and again to discover hidden characters, special moves, and new stages. I also find the multiple combos easier to use in this game than Fighters Kyodotai, but maybe I just got lucky :) It's also worth mentioning that the background sceneries in this game are even more detailed than Fighters Kyodotai, and the characters' attacks are more varied and better-looking. All in all, another superb freeware from a very talented amateur group. Two thumbs up for every beat 'em up fan.

Note: There seems to be a new version of this game titled "ver. Infinity", released in 2014. Check the "new site" link below. Both the sites are in Japanese and Chinese only, but you should be able to find the downloads!
