Dedicated to The King of Pop: Michael Jackson.



So I think we can all say that the current MJ's out there...are well.. shit..They're overpowered, the sprites look terrible and overall they are just not all that great to look at or play as. So what we have here is two devoted MJ fans who came together in the hopes of making a masterpiece. We've spent 2 years planning, scrapping and revamping , in between the trials of life, not limited to  but including,school,death of family members,bad break ups and the loss of our beloved King of Pop. This is it.. the Michael Jackson the Mugen community has been waiting for..


UPDATE: MJ's playstyle has shifted from his old 4 button style gameplay over to POTS Style



Whats planned:

Switch between costumes: Smooth Criminal, Billie Jean, Thriller, Beat it,Bad
The Way You Make Me Feel and Captain EO for hypers and specials
Ability to make the opponent dance with MJ
Music from the Michael's Career as a musical recording artist and entertainer such as Smooth Criminal, Billie Jean, Thriller, Beat It, Bad,The Way You Make Me Feel,Another Part of Me,You Rock My World, We Are Here To Change The World, Trouble,Dangerous,Leave Me Alone,You Can't Win,Hotstreet,StreetWalker,Dont Stop Till You Get Enough and many more!

As well as any other things we can think of  :P

FIRST VIDEO PREVIEW
ThE MAJORITY OF WHAT IS SHOWN HERE IS JUST A PLACEHOLDER AND FROM THE OLD SPRITE STYLE







Sprites by Bluframez, Coding by Fayt

This is the old sprite style we were using...

It's looking interesting... The stance looks a bit off though - since those seem to be based on the Genesis/Megadrive Moonwalker, wouldn't it be simpler to adapt the stance from there?

Speaking of which, any plans to use more stuff from that game, like the hat throwing, or maybe a robot transformation super?

The Genesis/Megadrive version was essentially only two frames... Hat throwing is a must. I've been looking into coding it as a stand alone helper..So that he can pick it up off the ground...As for the robot transformation..I'm not entirely sure..Zombie/Werewolf transformations are possibilities though

I have to ask this, but will you include that robot transformation from Moonwalker?

the one from moonwalker has only one frame and doesn't move at all lol I don't think anyone wants it looking like that
and yes the animations are borrowed from moonwalker all redrawn by me from scratch *no tracing* I included detail and extra colors and some original sprites
I love computers and I love to draw

I recall it being 1 frame only, but from what I recall from MJ's performances, it was rather frequent for him to stay perfectly still for a few seconds, do a bunch of moves in quick succession then go back to a still position:

So I think it would even be in-character - especially if the static pose was different depending on whichever move he used last, but that's just me.

I say have something Thriller-esque, since that's one of his most known roles/songs.

Dude, it was just distasteful what you did there. I don't care if you thought it was funny or not, others will see what you said as offensive, and to be honest it is very offensive.

Jeez Storm, back off, calm down !  :P

Edward, What do you mean exactly by changing his costumes? It' s palettes or will you actually redraw your sprites multiple times with the different costumes?
