Description

Akira Yuki, the only active master of the powerful Kung Fu technique known as Hakkyoku ken (“The Eight Point Fist") travels the world in search of enlightenment and worthy opponents. He has found them in in the World Fighting Tournament, where the strongest fighters determine who the master of hand-to-hand combat is. All techniques are allowed as long as the contestants use no weapons but their own bodies.

After weeks of trials, only seven other warriors remain: Sarah Bryant and her brother Jacky, Lau Chan and his daughter Pai, Jeffry McWild, Wolf Hawkfield and the ninja Kagemaru.

Virtua Fighter PC (aka - Virtua Fighter PC Remix) is an enhanced port of Sega's arcade hit Virtua Fighter. It features the original characters and stages with higher polygon counts and texture mapping (a la Virtua Fighter 2) and various minor gameplay tweaks.

Trivia

OEM version

Sega 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 version

The 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.
