The Magic Toaster Posted October 13, 2012 Share Posted October 13, 2012 [Gameplay] [Description] Burning Rival (バーニングライバル?) is a 1993 fighting arcade game developed by Sega-AM2 and published by Sega. It was released exclusively in Japan in July 1993. It was also the first fighting game developed by Sega-AM2; however, Virtua Fighter and Shenmue creator Yu Suzuki wasn't involved in this work. It was created during the fighting game trend of the 1990s that was popularized by Capcom's Street Fighter II. It is noted for its distinct 2D graphics and animations by Zero-One Ltd.
