Massive Steam sale means big discounts on King of Fighters 15, Guilty Gear Strive, and tons of other fighting games

The amount of money you'll be saving may just justify the amount you might be spending as a massive summer Steam sale is going on right now, and fighting games across the board are heavily discounted.

Yes, some of the titles that have been around for a few years have prices that are down in the single digits, but even more modern releases like 2022's King of Fighters 15 and 2021's Guilty Gear Strive have been temporarily slashed.

It feels relatively rare that SNK puts their games on sale, so seeing their freshest KOF at 25% off feels especially enticing to nab.

Titles like Tekken 7, Soul Calibur 6, and Dragon Ball FighterZ are a whopping 85% off right now while Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and Skullgirls are 80% off.

In some cases there are both base and final editions of games (which basically include most or all of the DLC additions) available at discounted rates, and it's almost always better to purchase the latter.

You can get the base Mortal Kombat 11, for instance, for 10 bucks or shell out an additional 5 dollars for MK11 Ultimate that includes 2 years worth of upgrades and expansions. Buying just a single DLC character costs around six dollars normally, so the better deal is painfully obvious here.

Those of you who want to prepare for Street Fighter 6 may want to grab Street Fighter 5 as it'll only run you $4.99 for the base versions. Do yourself a favor, though, and nab Champion Edition for $14.33 as it includes 40 characters (instead of just 16) as well as single player content.

We've rounded up a handful of fighters to highlight for you here, but you'll find even more by visiting the Steam Store.
