Sunday vs. Magazine is a fighting game that features dozens of characters from two of Japan’s most popular Shonen manga magazines, Shogakukan’s Shonen Sunday and Kodansha’s Shonen Magazine. It is a cel-shaded locked-view fighting game, similar to Street Fighter IV, with over a dozen characters from each publisher’s catalog, including current series and older classic titles. There are three main modes in the game. The first mode is an arcade, which pits the player against seven randomly chosen characters in order. Following that is quest mode, which plays more like a scrolling beat-em-up and tasks the player with completing various time-limited objectives such as destroying targets or collecting keys, and can be played solo or with up to three friends in wireless co-op. The final mode is a free battle, in which the player can fight unrestrained against the computer or a friend via local wireless play. The game system is pretty straightforward; characters have limited moves that can be customized per character. Each character can be upgraded by purchasing new activities with orbs earned in quest mode. Each character has super special and regular exercises, requiring a unique bar that fills as the player lands blows. As the game progresses, the player unlocks assist characters, which can be assigned to surfaces to provide special assist moves. A database mode is also available, where the player can read introductions to each playable and assist characters. The complete list of featured series is provided below.
