    No recent wiki edits to this page.


    Dark Edge is a 3D sci-fi fighting game developed and released by Sega for arcades (running Sega System 32 hardware) exclusively in Japan in late-1992.

    One of the three earliest pre-Virtua Fighter fighting games by Sega (alongside Burning Rival and Holosseum, both also running on the same hardware), Dark Edge is known as the first fighting game with a 3D free-movement system (using various scaling effects on 2D sprites instead of 3D polygons).
