Fighter’s History[a] is a 1993 arcadefighting game developed and published by Data East. It’s the inaugural game in the Fighter’s History series. The main unique feature of the Fighter’s History is its weak point system, which allows the player to temporarily stun an opponent by repeatedly hitting their weak point.
Fighter’s History is famous for having Data East caught in a lawsuit filed by Capcom, which claimed the game is too similar to its hit title, Street Fighter II, and as such is deemed copyright infringement on its property. The case tilted in Data East’s favor, however, as the court found that the copied elements were scenes a faire. The game was later ported to the SNES in 1994, and followed by a sequel Karnov’s Revenge for Neo Geo.
