Episode Notes:

1. Saturn and 32X footage from real hardware. Most arcade footage from MAME or the Astro City Mini.

2. There are a few other Virtua Fighter games out there, but they aren’t arcade ports. Virtua Fighter Animation is a Game Gear title based on the anime. There was even an R-Zone version, that was absolutely awful.

3. The PS2 version of VF4 was not arcade perfect. The Naomi 2 pushed more polygons and effects and looks noticeably superior.

4. A new Fighters Megamix would be an excellent opportunity for Sega to redo all these games into one huge collection.
