About The Game

Battle Arena Toshinden 2 is a 3-D, weapons-based fighting game featuring a total of 15 different fighters - 11 main fighters, 2 hidden fighters and 2 bosses. Battles take place in a number of 3-D rendered arenas. Unlike most other 3-D fighters of the time - in which only the graphics are 3-D, with the actual fighting taking place on a 2-D plane - Battle Arena Toshinden 2 features wholly 3-D gameplay that allows players to dive out of the path of their opponent's attacks.


Released in November 1995.

Licensed to Capcom for distribution.

Sony Records released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Battle Arena Toshinden 2 Game Soundtrack - SRCL-3471) on 21/04/1996.


The US version is slightly different, it has the "Recycle It, Don't Trash It!" screen.
