    Yuu Yuu Hakusho: Makyou Toitsusen (幽☆遊☆白書 魔強統一戦) is a 1994 fighting game for the Sega Mega Drive by Treasure made with the Yuu Yuu Hakusho license — the second such game, after Nextech's adventure game Yuu Yuu Hakusho Gaiden. Interestingly, Tectoy published the game in Brazil as Yuyu Hakusho: Sunset Fighters, however the game has not been released elsewhere. M.I.J.E.T. fan-translated the game to English in 2007.

    Various gameplay elements were also used in Bleach: The Blade of Fate and Bleach: Dark Souls.


    Yusuke Urameshi and his friends are invited to a tournament by Makyou Toitsusen, a mysterious martial arts society. In this tournament they are gonna face again some demons who fought them in the past, and decide who are the strongest.


    Yuu Yuu Hakusho: Makyou Toitsusen is a four-player fighting game with two fighting planes (similar to the likes of Fatal Fury). Like most fighting games it features an energy bar (reiryoku (霊力) in this case), which is used by special attacks. A and B attack and C blocks, with various combos along the way; holding A or B recharges spiritual power. Up jumps, X slides back, Z slides forward and Y (or C+Up) changes the fighting plane.


    There are three game modes:

    • Kachinukisen (勝ち抜き戦) / Eliminatória: Single player mode, on which you fight against all the eleven characters (including a clone of yours) in one-on-one combats, using a character of choice.
    • Renshuu Shiai (練習 試合) / Treinamento: This mode has four options:
      • Batoru Roiyaru (バトルロイヤル): Single fight for up to four players, each one plays on their own.
      • Taggumatchi (タッグマッチ): Also a single fight for up to four players, who can team up as they wish.
      • Tore-ningu (トレーニング) / Treinamento: Practice fight with no time, spiritual power or life limit. Start ends it.
      • Taisenseiseki (対戦成績) / Pontuação: Shows the rankings of Battle Royal and Tag Match.
    • トーナメント / Competição: On this mode players can choose to fight in pairs or individually. Up to four players can play, one at a time, if they choose "1Pトーナメント"; choosing "タッグトーナメント" allows players to fight in pairs, against opponents also in pairs.

    Tectoy translated the game to Portuguese.
    Yuu Yuu Hakusho: Makyou Toitsusen
    was the only game translated by Tectoy directly from Japanese to Portuguese. Curiously, although the series was very popular in Brazil at the time, more than 50% of the characters' names suffered bad translation.
