Summary Text





  • There are no screenshots for this game yet.






  • The game’s “100% conversion” isn’t accurate – frames of animation are missing, but the game play itself is intact.
  • Originally a Sega Saturn exclusive in Japan, Acclaim had Probe do the conversion for the PlayStation and DOS computers. These were strictly for the North American and European markets; there is no Japanese version of the PlayStation port.
  • The Sega Saturn had 1/3rd of the animation frames removed for it to work; the PlayStation even more so.
  • Akuma is a hidden character playable via code.
  • The PlayStation port came extremely late from it’s original time frame. The SLUS and PSRM data – due to it’s low numbers –  was either recycled from another project, or it just took that long from original license filing for it to finally come out.
  • Has an issue with certain PlayStation 3 models. It will load, and then blink on and off like an old NES cart.




  • Play As Akuma for Player 1
    At the character select screen, highlight Spiral and wait for three seconds. Then move to each character in this order: Silver Samurai, Psylocke, Colossus, Iceman, Colossus, Cyclops, Wolverine, Omega Red, and Silver Samurai. Wait three seconds on Silver Samurai and then press Light Kick, Hard Kick and Hard Punch all at once. If correctly done, the announcer will say “Silver Samurai”, but Akuma will drop down.
  • Play as Akuma for Player 2
    At the character select screen, highlight Storm, then wait for three seconds. Then, move to each character in this order: Cyclops, Colossus, Iceman, (off page left to) Sentinel, Omega Red, Wolverine, Psylocke, Silver Samurai, and Spiral. When you stop on Spiral, wait three seconds and then press Light Kick, Hard Kick and Hard Punch simultaneously. If this is done correctly, the announcer will say “Spiral”, but Akuma will drop down.
