Check out this cheesy promo video for the 1992 Atari arcade game:

I actually quite liked this game in the arcades even though it's widely considered to be total shit:

I have never played it but the first thing that came to mind was Pit Fighter. I always played the Genesis/Meg Drive version of that.

People must have thought there were better fighters to play.

It was a kind of sequel to Pit-Fighter (one of my favourite ever games)

Sadly not, I always thought it would have made a great launch title for the Jaguar

I was thinking of the Atari ST but the Jaguar would have been a better choice.

No way would the been able to pull that off. I think its the main reason it didn't get converted, most consoles of the time struggled enough with Pit-Fighter!

I did not know if the 1040ST could have but you have cleared that up.
