Power Stone (パワーストーン) is a 3D fighting game developed by Capcom for Sega NAOMI hardware in 1999. It was also one of the first releases for the Sega Dreamcast, coming to the console later in the year.

Gameplay

The game is a two-player top-down fighting game, where players can use special attacks and utilize objects to beat their opponents. The levels also spawn "Power Stones", which can significantly boost the player's performance if collected.
