Battle Arena Toshinden Remix, called Toshinden S (闘神伝S) in Japan, is a 1995 3D fighting game for the Sega Saturn in Takara's Battle Arena Toshinden series of games.

Gameplay

Remix is an enhanced port of the 1995 PlayStation game, Battle Arena Toshinden (simply known as Toshinden in Japan). In its original incarnation it acted as the PlayStation's answer to Virtua Fighter, a battle it was largely considered to have won as a showcase for the then-new generation of hardware. Remix adds a new computer generated introduction to the game, as an all-new story mode, and a exclusive character called Cupido. This is Cupido's only appearance in the series.

History

Legacy

A "sequel" was later released under the name Battle Arena Toshinden URA, which derives from the PlayStation game Battle Arena Toshinden 2.

Versions

With the release of this Remix edition, Battle Arena Toshinden became the first Western title that could be compared directly across the Saturn and PlayStation[3], however the results generally favour Sony's machine, which operates at a higher resolution and a higher polygon count. The original Toshinden also runs faster, while the Saturn conversion has to make compromises owing to its lack of alpha transparency.
