Waku Waku 7 (わくわく7) is a fighting game by Sunsoft. Originally for Neo Geo MVS arcade hardware, it was ported to the Sega Saturn in 1997. It was only released in Japan.

Gameplay

Waku Waku 7 is a one-on-one fighting game and spiritual sequel to Galaxy Fight.

History

Versions

The Saturn port is often looked on as being a weaker version, as despite requiring an extra 1MB RAM cartridge, it offers more pixellated backgrounds and longer loading times than the Neo Geo version.
