So we’ve had news of some great outfits for the Nintendo Vs Sega Party so far – a Chun Li and Blanca couple (Street Fighter II), James Bond (Goldeneye) and Rayden (Mortal Kombat) have all been confirmed.
There is also now the fantastic prize of a MEGA DRIVE CONSOLE for the best costume! This will be announced by the Popes Of Chillitown after their set.
For those of you not so familiar with Sega and Nintendo, don’t worry – you can still dress up! Below are some classic Sega and Nintendo games, with suggestions for costumes – we can’t all be Mario you know!
Luckily SEGA totally cashed in on the sport/film video game market and made a game for pretty much every big action film of the 90s!

The Evil Uncle x
I was not at all aware of this game back in the day but it looks ace! It’s perhaps a bit worrying that you have to search for kids in cupboards who follow you around and shout ‘MICHAEL! MICHAEL!’.
My favourite bit is the end where your special move is to make all the enemies dance to Smooth Criminal then they all die. Either that or the bit where Bubbles jumps on your head and shoots people.
Amazing! I wonder what a Michael Jackson game on the Nintendo Wii would involve?
I have also just beeen sent a version of this game. Yes! You can play Michael Jackson’s Moonwalker here
