  • Tag Team Technology allowing you to swap characters on the fly.
  • A killer combat system unlike anything from the era with upgradeable power moves, combos and momentum-based physics that feel entirely modern.
  • Coded entirely in 6502 Assembly language down in our 8-bit laboratories. Authenticity, baby! #8BitLegit
  • Sizzling chiptune soundtrack composed entirely in Famitracker.

Haunted Halloween ’86 is available now on the Nintendo eShop for $9.99.
