One of the biggest flaws in the arcade version was the short time period you had in any given match--30 seconds--which was far too brief to stage a comeback.The home version will remedy this problem with adjustable round times and a whole bunch of other option-related goodies.
For those unfamiliar with the game, here's a quick run-down. You fight in a fence-enclosed ring which you can use to knock opponents against and through.The fighters wear armor that can be knocked off (upper and lower) and possess counter-strikes that are easy to do and needed to break armor. Lots of hidden moves, plenty of violence. This one's a winner. Trust me.

Sega is currently hard at work converting its awesome new fighting game. Fighting Vipers, for the Saturn system. The game will be managed and completed by the same team that did such a sterling job with the Virtue Fighter 2 conversion.
Sega promises that advances in the 3D graphics library will mean that Fighting Vipers will be even more visually stunning than the VF2 conversion.The game-play, for those of you who haven't checked out the arcade game, is very similar to Virtua Fighter, but the addition of walled-in fighting arenas means that bashing people off the boundaries plays an important part in the gameplay.
The characters are a motley bunch, including radical skaters, weird punkers and a rather odd French maid called "Honey." It's all very odd and very violent and the game is beginning to gather quite a following in the arcades.Were looking forward to the final version, due in the States in late Summer, as part of Sega's big Christmas build-up.
