Fight­ing Cli­max was built for Sega’s Ring Edge 2 ar­cade sys­tem, and the pub­lisher has lent much to the game. Vir­tua Fighter’s Akira is the ar­cade mode’s boss, with as­sist sup­port from Pai Chan. There are Sega back­grounds, too, but they sit rather oddly within the game as a whole. See­ing mod­ern anime fighters fling­ing vend­ing ma­chines at each other in front of Valkyria Chron­i­cles tanks – or, worse, in Green Hill Zone – proves too jar­ring a dis­con­nect. At least Sonic isn’t playable.
