Great job man! So awesome that things like this still pop up today. Shame that some of the cards are dead, looks really cool.

The art style immediately reminded me of an SNK Playmore game. But maybe that's just me. Anyhow, awesome find!

:O This is amazing! It sounds like the game has music? Depending on if it sounds like Kiyomi Kataoka (Technos) or Yuka Watanabe (ADK) that would probably solve who made the game.

NTM said it shows NGH number belongs to voltage fighter, could it be technos unreleased game: High Voltage 12+1?

Nice, OK you've twisted my arm, I'll trade you my Riding Hero proto for this nameless game. You know, as a favor.

On the 2 videos shared only the first is public, on the stage there is a monolith with something scribed on it but is illegible, can that be a clue to find out the name or house that developed the game?

Excellent find Turf!

Wish I had stayed long enough to watch the demo now. Felt like hell though.

The 2nd video should be viewable now. The game is put away now. No more videos from me.

That warms my heart.

Great job NTM!

I'm curious, and apologies if this has been answered elsewhere, but is there data for the credits stored in the ROMs that can be scanned for a game name and staff roll?

It would make sense if this was Technos' Death Match. Its definitely got the look of a third party developed fighter, and one from the mid-90's.

It's probably in the OP, but the SRAMs containing all text and audio are shot. No hints there.
