Virtua Fighter PC (バーチャファイター PC) is a fighting game released as part of the Virtua Fighter series for Windows PCs. It is essentially a port of Virtua Fighter Remix for the Sega Saturn, but unlike that game also features a switch to revert the aesthetics back to the original Virtua Fighter, making it the closest official means of playing the original title on PC too.

Virtua Fighter PC was first released in the Spring of 1996 as Sega's first 3D game for the platform. All 3D rendering is acheived in software, with no support for 3D graphics accelerator cards. Compared to Remix, the game runs with a higher screen resolution, however frame rates can be inconsistent, particularly in Remix mode. Sections of the game can also run too fast on modern machines, as timings are geared towards mid-90s Pentium CPUs.

A special version of Virtua Fighter PC, optimised for NV1 graphics cards was also released in North America. This version was only sold bundled with the Diamond EDGE 3D 3240 card, and offers improved performance.

Though the game operates at a higher resolution than the Sega Model 2 version of Virtua Fighter, like the Saturn conversions, Virtua Fighter PC uses fewer polygons than its arcade counterpart. In the arcade for example, each of the characters' fingers are individually modelled, while here the whole hand is animated as one.
