Fossil Fighters Champions is an RPG for the Nintendo DS, published by Nintendo. It takes the “monster battling” approach to extinct creatures, and has players waging battles against each other using monsters based off of dinosaurs and other paleolithic beasts. In order to find these creatures, however, they must dig up and clean fossils in order to revive them into “vivosaurs.” It is the sequel to 2009’s Fossil Fighters, and includes numerous new features, such as a tweaked battle system, new types of Fossil Rocks to clean, improved graphics and music, and, of course, a multitude of new monsters.
The game underwent numerous beta changes from when it was originally announced in Japanese, to when it was first announced in English, to its English release.
-The original Japanese trailer for the game shows a large birdlike animal inside a giant Fossil Rock. No fossil like this exists in the final game, though whether it was a cut species or a new type of fossil for an older species is unclear.
-Several battle animations differ from their final forms.
-The overworld model for Fossil Rocks dug out of the ground is different; it’s lumpier and more darkly-colored than its final version.
-The game was originally announced in English as “Super Fossil Fighters,” mirroring its Japanese name, Super Kaiseki Horida. The English trailer below shows the original logo.
-The English trailer shows the player battling Joe Wildwest much earlier than he can be fought in-game. In addition, he uses a team different from his one in-game.
