Overview

Fighting Masters is a sci-fi fighting game developed by Almanic and published by Treco for the Sega Genesis in both Japan (on December 6, 1991) and North America (on August 17, 1992).

A sci-fi themed one-on-one fighting game, Fighting Masters includes a contextual two-button fighting system, with the B button for normal attacks and the C button for either jumping, alternate air attacks, or alternate grapple attacks. It also features a wrestling-style grapple system, where both characters grab each-other when up-close and the first player to perform a grapple attack gets to perform it.

The game's story, taking place in the distant future between 12 of the galaxy's star systems, changes wildly between the Japanese and American versions of the game:

  • The Japanese version involve the rise of the dark lord Valgasu, who has conquered and enslaved all but one of the 12 star systems through defeating their champions. As the last fighting master, the chosen combatant must defeat the other brainwashed champions to challenge Valgasu.
  • The American version paints a bleaker picture, as the 12 star systems are about to be destroyed by an enormous supernova and an advanced star-faring race (the "Primaries") hosts a one-on-one tournament to choose the most worthy civilization to save from extinction.
