About The Game
Fighter's History is an arcade video game.
Players choose one of 9 international fighters and battle to be the best in the world.
In 1993 Capcom sued Data East for the similarities between Fighter's History & "Street Fighter II - The World Warrior". Despite Data East successfully defending itself in the lawsuit, Fighter's History was not rid of its reputation as a 'shameless Street Fighter rip-off' and went ignored by many gamers. Its sequels, which added little to the series, helped cement this reputation.
In a bit of payback, Capcom added most of the moves of Lee into the characters Yang and Yun in Street Fighter 3.
This is one of the rare Japanese-made fighting games where the characters yell out the names of their moves in their native language. Most Japanese-made fighting games, including "Street Fighter II - The World Warrior", have the Asian characters (usually comprised of East Asians) speak Japanese while all the other characters speak English or Japanese, regardless of their nationality.
Both Ryoko and Jean's endings mention the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta.
Mizoguchi later appeared as a selectable character in the Sony PlayStation 2 game "KOF - Maximum Impact Regulation A".
Pony Canyon / Scitron released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Fighter's History - PCCB-00123) on 18/06/1993.
A Fighter's History unit appears in the 1998 movie 'The Replacement Killers'.
The US version is slightly different, it has the "Winners Don't Use Drugs" screen.
