I'm looking for a good 2D fighting game engine based on sprites. I really dont care much about which language that it is programmed in. Specifically I'm looking for an engine I can use for a game I can sell later and could be exportable to different systems.

Something like 2D Fighter Maker or MUGEN would be great, but that could have a product sold using the tech.

"M.U.G.E.N is free for non-commercial use. If you have other needs, just ask us." Contact them and see if they're willing to work out a new licencing agreement in exchange for compensation. Unless you are looking for something free. –  ClassicThunder Nov 30 '11 at 3:40

This looks pretty promising and it is build on the c# xna 4.0 This platform is very powerful when it comes to publishing content for Windows, Windows phone 7 and Xbox.

It also looks like it comes with some good editing modules for helping you get your game up and running in no time.

For Windows i would buy DarkBasic Pro from TGC (BASIC Code). You can develop 2D and 3D commercial games for Windows. DarkBasic Pro is also compatible with TGC Plug-in's

If you want cross platform 2D game development use App Game Kit (BASIC Code). App Game Kit has a website: www.appgamekit.com.

Both are available from www.thegamecreators.com .

"A modular fighting game engine for the Java SE and Android platform."

This has a well-written codebase, but the demo games included need much polish.
