Martial Champion is a 2D fighting game developed and released by Konami for arcades on February 1993.
The first fighting game by Konami after the success of Capcom's hit Street Fighter II, Martial Champion is known for its large character sprites (similar to the Art of Fighting series), bottom-positioned lifebars, limited weapon-based fighting, a final boss that attacks with the special moves of all other fighters, and a unique control scheme (featuring three attack buttons that correspond to the attack position, rather than attack strength, similar to their first overall fighting game, Yie Ar Kung-Fu).
It was later ported to the PC Engine Super CD-ROM² exclusively in Japan on December 17, 1993. This version was later digitally re-released for the Wii (via Virtual Console) in Japan on May 13, 2008.
