    Burning Fight is a belt-scrolling brawler developed and released by SNK for arcades (running Neo-Geo MVS hardware) on May 20, 1991. It was later released for the Neo Geo AES on August 9, 1991, followed by a release for the Neo Geo CD as a launch title.

    Inspired by similar beat 'em ups of the time, such as Final Fight, Streets of Rage, and the Double Dragon series, Burning Fights puts players in control of one of three police detectives (Ryu Saeba, Duke Edwards, and Billy King) as they fight through hordes of thugs to purge modern-day Osaka of the combined forces of an American crime syndicate (the Casterora Family) and a Japanese yakuza gang (the Heiwa-Gumi).

    The game was later digitally re-released for the Wii (as a Virtual Console title) on April 14, 2008 in North America, on May 7, 2008 in Japan, and on May 30, 2008 in Europe. It was also included in the SNK Arcade Classics Vol. 1 compilation for the PlayStation 2, Wii, and PlayStation Portable. It was also digitally re-released as part of HAMSTER's ACA NeoGeo series for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch on September 28, 2017, with a later release for the PC on August 2, 2018.
