Fighting Vipers came to arcades and the SEGA Saturn the following year, in 1996, adding a new concept that was a fighting game first: destructible armor. Players could maximize their damage dealt by destroying an opponent’s protective gear, and could then finish the round by punching or kicking the other player right through the arena’s walls.
Sonic the Fighters’s arrival in arcades in 1996 offered players a first-ever opportunity to take to the ring with characters from the Sonic the Hedgehog series, including Tails, Knuckles, and Amy Rose. Players had to battle their way through eight stages to collect chaos emeralds and once again thwart the evil plans of Dr. Robotnik and Metal Sonic!
In 1994, Virtua Fighter 2 followed in the footsteps of its hit predecessor by bringing breakthrough 3D graphics and fighting gameplay to arcades. The title’s combination of deep combat and unique arenas led it to quickly become one of the flagship titles on the SEGA Saturn™ when it arrived on the console in 1995.
Sega are starting to look after their fans, giving them what every one wants but you know what? Any true Sega fan would trade all these games in for the likes of Shenmue HD and Burning Rangers HD to grace our consoles, and show gamers of this generation how we used to rock the scene back in our day. if Sega must push out more fighting games then Fighters Megamix will do nicely.
I am a hardcore gamer, loving all things pixelated! I wont win any writing awards, But my admiration and dedication to gaming can never be questioned.
