OEM versionSega released a version of this game that was included with the Diamond Edge 3D video card. It would only work with that specific video card, and used the proper title Virtua Fighter Remix instead of Virtua Fighter PC. The Diamond Edge 3D had ports on it which allowed use of actual Saturn controllers with Sega PC titles.
Saturn versionThe Saturn version of Virtua Fighter Remix was given to all registered Saturn owners in the U.S. free via mail. This is usually considered to be a response to complaints about the quality of the original Saturn port of Virtua Fighter.
