I recently started playing Super Gem Fighter: Mini Mix online. It's incredibly underrated and I'm hopeful that the community will expand over time. It's extremely charming and is very well balanced. It took some time for me to wrap my head around the fact that there isn't any chip damage, but it actually works. Most of the characters have move sets that are predicated on zoning, even though rushdown strategies have greater applicability than zoning strategies. There's a lot of mind games always happening in regards to conditioning your opponent to open themselves up. Blessed game. 

I like the game, but (irrationally?) hate the localized arcade title. Leave it to Capcom to run a joke into the ground. "Pocket Fighter" also gives it a brother-from-another-mother vibe with SNK's Neo-Geo Pocket fighters, which also have chibi characters and one button each for punches and kicks.

It was originally released as ポケットファイター (Pocket Fighter) in Japanese arcades, as well as for all console releases. It was only ever called Super Gem Fighter: Mini Mix in North American and European arcade releases.

BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle is like $5 on Switch right now.

I'll let you all know how I feel about it in 4 years when I get my diploma for graduating from the tutorial.
