Released in May 1996.

This game was released in limited quantities in the US as "Sonic Championship".

Sonic The Fighters was conceived at AM2 when, during development of "Fighting Vipers", a programmer programmed Sonic into the game's code. AM2 head Yu Suzuki caught a glimpse at it and thought that it was a joke. He then pitched the Sonic Fighters concept to Sonic Team leader Yuji Naka, and after getting the approval from Naka, the game's development began.

The character 'Bean The Dynamite' comes directly from the old Sega game "Dynamite Dux". His alternate costume/color is an exact replica of his Dynamite Dux appearance.

Toshiba EMI released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Sonic the Fighters Sound Tracks - TYCY-5521) on 07/12/1996.


* Play as Super Sonic : Begin a game playing as Sonic, and win against the first eight enemies without being defeated. When fighting against Metal Sonic defeat him in the first round, and in the second round turn Sonic in to Super Sonic by pressing Back+Punch+Kick at the same time. If done correctly sonic will morph in to the invincible Super Sonic.
