Virtua Fighter is a 1993 fighting game developed by the Sega studio AM2, headed by Yu Suzuki.
The transition of Virtua Fighter to the home console was initially difficult due to the comparative weakness of early Sega consoles, but VF1 featured on the 32X and the Sega Saturn in 1995.
Sega released Virtua Fighter 2 on the Saturn for Christmas 1995 and a super-deformed version called "Virtua Fighter Kids." Also released for the Saturn and related to Virtua Fighter were "Fighter's Megamix" (1996) and the curious "Virtua Fighter Portrait Series" (1996).

The Virtua Fighter series has always been a bit of an odd duck.
