In the mood for a free fighting game? Then Vanguard Princess is right up your alley!
Supposedly developed by an ex-Capcom staff member named Tomoaki Sugeno (though this hasn’t been confirmed), Vanguard Princess is an all-girl loli/Doujin/homebrew 2D fighting game completely created by Sugeno himself.

The game makes use of assist support characters and “old-skool mechanism” fighting (whatever that means) to create a smooth, high-quality fighting game experience that feels more like a retail product than a freeware title. It was developed using the Japanese-only Fighter Maker 2nd fighting engine (similar to MUGEN but with more support and possibilities).
Here is a trailer of the game in action. Hopefully someone will release it for Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network and WiiWare! Because it looks beautiful!
Here are the specs need to run the game:
Operating System?Microsoft – Windows 98/Me/2000/XP Japanese Edition (or Japanese Locale).
CPU Pentium III 400MHz.
HDD 400MB Free Space,DirectX 7 required.
You will also need to do this:
“Vanguard Princess NEEDS the Windows regional configuration for non-unicode programs in Japanese in order for it to work. To enable this, go to Control Panel -> Regional and Language Settings -> Administrative -> Then change the Unicode language to Japanese. Some people also tested the game with AppLocale or NTLEA which works on some occasions but with some bugs like unreadable fonts or no music. Also running the game on the root of C:\ seems to randomly work.”
