Game Summary:
Virtua Fighter Remix was an update of the original Virtua Fighter with higher-polygon models, texture mapping, and some gameplay changes. It was given free to all registered Saturn owners in the United States via mail. It also had an arcade release on the ST-V (an arcade platform based on the Sega Saturn) and later ported to Microsoft Windows as Virtua Fighter PC.

Virtua Fighter is a fighting game created for the Sega Model 1 arcade platform by AM2, a development group within Sega, headed by Yu Suzuki. It was released in October 1993 in Japan, Europe, And UK and November 28, 1993 in North America. It is the first game in the Virtua Fighter series, and the first arcade fighting game to feature fully 3D polygon graphics. The game has been ported to several platforms including the Sega Saturn, Sega 32X, and Microsoft Windows. A critically acclaimed and hit game, Virtua Fighter was highly regarded for its in-depth fighting engine and real world fighting techniques, and has been revolutionary and highly influential in the evolution of the genre and video games in general.

An update titled Virtua Fighter Remix, developed by AM1, was released for the Saturn in 1995, and ported to the arcade later that same year. The game’s remake, Virtua Fighter 10th Anniversary, was released exclusively for the PlayStation 2 in 2003 as a stand-alone title in Japan and as a bonus to Virtua Fighter 4: Evolution in North America.


The Virtua label indicates that the onscreen action takes place in 3D. The images were created using wireframe and flat-shaded quads. Beyond 3D, it retained the staple of multiple characters, each with their own distinctive moves.

In the game’s single-player mode, the player faces all eight characters (including a duplicate of the chosen character) in a pre-determined order, followed by a fight with the game’s boss, Dural. Each fight is a best-of-three match, and the player has three ways to win: knocking out the opponent, forcing him/her out of the ring, or having more health left when time runs out.

Unlike other fighting games of the early 1990s (such as Street Fighter II or Mortal Kombat), the game relies on a control stick and only three buttons, Punch, Kick, and Guard (block) although different situations and button combinations led to a vast variety of moves for each character.



Akira Yuki—A kung fu teacher from Japan, fights with bajiquan.

Pai Chan—Martial arts movie star from Hong Kong, fights with ensei-ken (mizongquan).

Lau Chan—Pai’s father and a cook from China, fights with koen-ken (”Tiger-Swallow Fist”).

Wolf Hawkfield—Professional wrestler from Canada, fights with professional wrestling.

Jeffry McWild—Fisherman from Australia, fights with pancratium.

Kage-Maru (”Kage”)—Ninja from Japan, fights with jujutsu.

Sarah Bryant—College student from San Francisco, CA, fights with jeet kune do (Sega changed her fighting style to ”Martial Arts” in Virtua Fighter 4: Evolution).

Jacky Bryant—Sarah’s older brother and a race car driver also from San Francisco, fights with jeet kune do.

Dural—A gynoid that is the game’s boss character and is also Kage’s missing mother. She fights with a mix of all the other characters’ styles.

An Arab fighter named Siba was planned, and his character model even appeared on some Virtua Fighter arcade cabinets (though, in some cases, Akira’s name was placed under his portrait). He was ultimately dropped, but later appeared in Fighters Megamix.


Once in the Shōwa period, the defunct Japanese army intended to approach Henry Pu-yi, the last Emperor of the Ching Dynasty in their effort to take advantages. However, they were defeated by the Imperial guards who utilized the martial art called Hakkyoku-ken. During World War II, the Japanese army research the mysteries of Hakkyoku-ken to create supersoldiers, developing the ultimate martial art.

Approximately half a century has passed since then, the ultimate World Fighting Tournament is about to start, and all kinds of fighters from around the world engage to determine the world’s best. Behind the Tournament, however, there exists an intrigue designed by a sinister syndicate.
