Sega's first 3-D, one-on-one fighting game. It used Sega's System 32 arcade hardware which also empowered Spider-Man, Arabian Fight and Rad Mobile to do real-time scaling of characters and to simulate 3-D movement within an essentially 2-D arena. This system was conceptually junked in favor of the 3-D Virtua Fighter several months thereafter.
