PS5 Fighting Games

Whether it’s online or with your friends in the same room, fighting games are the foundation of any great gaming competition.

Our Top Picks For Fighting Games on The PS5

1. Street Fighter

Street Fighter is absolute classic, and it’s been riding high as a PS4 exclusive with Street Fighter V. With major appearances at E3 and PSX, this series is pretty healthy after all these years. I imagine we’ll see it’s sixth entry on PS5 with new characters, and perhaps even a new art style.

I know, blasphemy, but with all that horsepower, it would be pretty cool to make things more realistic looking.

2. Tekken

Speaking of realism, Tekken has always been known for its hyper-realistic graphics. With Tekken 7 hitting PS4, and even some VR content included with it. Fighting in VR? Don’t get too excited, it’s more of a bonus than a full feature.

Even so, if the concept sticks, we could see a VR fighting game with Tekken on the PS5. I’m thinking a wireless headset, those glove controllers Sony has a patent for, and a lot of space required so you don’t punch your TV. Regardless, I’m betting we’ll see Tekken 8 on the PS5.

3. Mortal Kombat/Injustice

Netherrealm Studios has been riding high with the release of Mortal Kombat X and Injustice 2, both of which were very well received. Now that they’ve nailed down the finer points of their new engine, I think it’s time we tried that Mortal Kombat/DC crossover again.

Yeah, the first time didn’t go so well, but that was the old engine. Someone over there, ideally Ed Boon himself, must be thinking the same. Regardless, Mortal Kombat and Injustice are riding too high to not make an appearance on the PS5.

4. Marvel vs Capcom

Marvel vs Capcom made some huge waves when Sony announced Marvel vs Capcom Infinite. This is another one of those series that has been begging for a sequel for years. Assuming this new entry is well-received (and it will be), then it will propel this fighting series onto the PS5.

Again, the art style here could really benefit from some additional horsepower, even if it’s just additional effects or higher frame rate combined with 4K. I wouldn’t mind seeing the return of consumer arcade sticks either.

5. Guilty Gear

This is one of those niche fighting games that always manages to come back. While we haven’t seen one in a little while, Guilty Gear is bound to make a comeback on the PS5. It’s also possible that we could see its sibling, BlazBlue make a comeback as well.

We will just replace sonic the hedgehog with miles tails prower the two tailed yellow foxx should get his own adventure game called Tails adventure 2,oh,great there was shadow the hedgehog game back in 2004,so,shadow the hedgehog 2 might replace sonic the hedgehog,but mario on the PlayStation 5 doesn’t go together since we got goku and vegeta, but to add another fighter the master cheif would be a good sonic replacement then we would get halo infinite as a PlayStation 5 exclusive,but it’s you’re option PlayStation 5

The best fighting characters are sonic the hedgehog,miles tails prower,knuckles,rogue the bat,shadow the hedgehog,silver the hedgehog,mephiles the dark and dr.eggman,but mario games are Nintendo games and PlayStation 5 doesn’t do mario games,they do sonic gaames,but if the ps 5 thinks of a way for ps 5 and Nintendo would give us super smash bros,but who knows,mario isn’t that popular as goku and vegeta,plus the seven dragon balls and choas emeralds because the only popular character is yohsi and lugie and browser and browse jr,darth vader,kylo ren,darth sidious,count dooku,mace window,Spider-Man,vemon,carrnage,batman,ninja turtles,SpongeBob and more characters fit the fighting style.
