STATUS
Despite a few minor glitches here and there, Virtua Fighter was a shoo-in as launch title for the Sega Saturn: fast, smooth, eternally playable and iconic to the last.
Problem is: though cutting-edge in late '93, by late '94 the flat-shaded visuals seemed horrendously out of date. Not good for new hardware.

CD case, Sega Saturn CD-ROM disc, 36-page colour manual, spine card.
