Introduction:
Fatal Fury 3 was released on NEOGEO back in 1995 by SNK, and has been ported directly to the Xbox One by our new best friends over at the bizarrely named Hamster Corporation. As with most of the other games so far released in the ACA series, this is a pretty fast completion, requiring little skill to finish. You only need to play each game mode once, but depending on luck and how fast you get used to the controls, may take few more tries.

Step 1 - Original Mode
Start up in original mode. You can change the settings to make things easier for yourself and fight the AI, but if you want to be cheap, you can plug a second controller in and just beat a non-moving opponent. The achievement won't pop when you are doing this, but if you win the fight and don't continue with player 2, you will go back to fighting the AI. Press and hit "Save Interrupt Data"; this will create a save point. Restart the game (quit to dashboard first), start original mode and you will continue against the AI and your achievement will pop. Do this at each score increment, pressing on your second controller to repeat the process. Once you have them, let yourself get beat and unlock the two high score achievements. 5 achievements for 420.

Step 2 - Hi-Score Mode
In Hi-Score Mode, you have to test yourself against the computer at level 4 difficulty. You can get to the required score by having the skill to beat half of the opponents, or use the tips in the guide to get a double perfect on the first opponent and win one round against the second. Once you nail this, it shouldn't take too many attempts to get the scores required. Once you have the score related achievements, let yourself get beat and upload your score for the related achievement. 4 achievements for 340.

Step 3 - Caravan Mode
Rinse and repeat what you did in step 2, this time in Caravan mode. As well as not being able to change the difficulty, you have only 5 minutes to get the high scores. However, this should be plenty of time in this game. Once you have the score related achievements, you can simply quit out. 3 achievements for 240.

Conclusion:
This game shouldn't give even the most amateur fighting game player much trouble, once you get your technique on Bob Wilson down. If you don't mind the price point for not much bang for your buck, and appreciate an easy 1000, then this game comes highly recommended!

There are 12 achievements with a total of 1000 points

  • The score has been posted to the online rankings.

    Play the game on any mode, with any settings, and set a high score. When you get to the game over screen, as long as you get on the high score board, you will get this. The lowest score is really low, you probably have to beat the first guy only for this. The game will ask you if you want to upload your high score. Press  and your achievement will pop. This must be against the AI not a second controller.

  • High score has been updated.

  • The score won 200,000 points.

    Refer to “Score 600,000 points” for more information. 

  • The score won 400,000 points.

  • The score won 600,000 points.

    There are two ways to do this. First of all, for either method you need to go into the settings (press  to access the menu) and change the difficulty down to one, and the timer to the slowest possible. This will of course make the game easier and increase your potential points due to the timer.

    If you only have one controller, you will have to play through and beat as many opponents as you can. You have unlimited continues, and if you get to someone you can’t beat, each time you continue you will continue with any points you had from the fight. This could potentially take a really long time if you get to somebody you are stuck on, as if you can’t win even a round against them. You could alternatively use the save interrupt points ((press , it is at the top) to create checkpoints and reload if you aren’t happy with your progress. 

    If you have a second controller, this will be much easier for you. Start up a single player game, and get a perfect against the first opponent (see “HI SCORE MODE 120,000 points” for how to do this easily. When round two starts, your first round points will have been added, and you should have around 35k points. Press start on your second controller (making sure it has credits by pressing ), and beat your motionless opponent. When you get back to single player, you will have your 35k points and start at round one again. Beat him again, and your points will get added, and you can rinse and repeat until you get over 600k points. 

    You will need to create a save interrupt data point after you have reached each achievement threshold and restart Original mode, as the achievements won’t pop if you have had a second player. Going back into the game tricks it into thinking you have only played single player and allows the achievement to pop.

    Play the game on Hi-Score mode, with any settings, and set a high score. When you get to the game over screen, as long as you get on the high score board, you will get this. The lowest score is really low, you probably have to beat the first guy only for this. The game will ask you if you want to upload your high score. Press  and your achievement will pop.

    You can battle your way through the game if you skill is high enough, but all you really need to do is get a double perfect in the first fight and win one round in the second for this one. Pick Andy (this will work with others, but Andy seems the most effective), and fight against Bob Wilson. What you need to do is jump at him with a jumping kick, then crouch and leg sweep him. Keep on jump kicking over him and leg sweeping him when he gets up. Sometimes he will get an odd kick in against you - if so, restart. With a bit of practice you will be able to get perfects against him almost every time. With your bonuses, you should be at around 110k when you start your second fight. You should only need to win one round against him to get a further 10k, however the difficulty spike is huge, Just hit him with all everything you have got, mix it up a bit and hit him with different attacks and combos. It may take a few tries to beat him but he isn’t too hard, just frustrating!

  • CARAVAN MODE 40,000 points.

    Refer to “CARAVAN MODE 80,000 points” for more information. 

  • CARAVAN MODE 60,000 points.

    Refer to “CARAVAN MODE 80,000 points” for more information. 

  • CARAVAN MODE 80,000 points.

    You can battle your way through the game if you skill is high enough, but as you but all you really need get this done quickly, you need some perfects. You can get two in the first fight fairly easily. Pick Andy (this will work with others, but Andy seems the most effective), and fight against Bob Wilson. What you need to do is jump at him with a jumping kick, then crouch and leg sweep him. Keep on jump kicking over him and leg sweeping him when he gets up. Sometimes he will get an odd kick in against you - if so, restart. With a bit of practice you will be able to get perfects against him almost every time. Two perfects is easily enough to get you all the Caravan mode achievements.
