Introduction

Waku Waku 7 is an obscure, hidden gem of a fighting game, developed by Sunsoft. Originally released on November 21st, 1996, later being ported to the Sega Saturn, and a bevy of other systems in recent years. The game is not a sequel of any kind; rather, its name is derived from the 7 main characters and 7 Waku balls those characters seek in the game's story.

The game has a lot of common features found in SNK games, like the 4 buttons scheme, the screen Zoom, etc... Waku offers a lot of unique mechanics such as the ability to launch your opponent to the side of the screen, being able to jump from the wall for certain characters and rebounding when being thrown to the wall.
