Virtua Fighter Remix (バーチャファイター リミックス) is an update to Virtua Fighter, and was first released on the Sega Saturn in 1995 just months after the Saturn release of the first game.

Virtua Fighter had been released on the Saturn in a less-than-impressive state. Sega had attempted to make an accurate port of the Sega Model 1 arcade version, and therefore chose to use untextured models and the soundtrack from the arcade machine. However, as the Saturn was incapable of rendering as many polygons on screen as Model 1 hardware, characters look noticeably worse on the Saturn version. Many claim it to be even worse than the Sega 32X version, thanks to the added CD loading times.

Virtua Fighter Remix was created to address many of these flaws. Models have a slightly higher polygon count in Remix (though still less than the Model 1 version), however they are also texture-mapped, leading to a much more modern looking game which could effectively compete with those on the PlayStation. The game also allows players to use the original flat-shaded models from Virtua Fighter on the Saturn.

In the West, a CG Portrait Collection Disc was also included in the Saturn bundle. North American owners would get Virtua Fighter Remix for free if they registered their Saturns before September 30, 1995Media:GamePro US 075.pdf[7], while Japanese customers would later receive a SegaNet compatible version. Sega would also bring Virtua Fighter Remix to Sega Titan Video arcade hardware.

The PC game Virtua Fighter PC is a port of Virtua Fighter Remix.
