Select one of 15 fighters and compete in the RINGS Championship, facing off against each of the 14 opponents using striking or grappling techniques to increase your parameters depending on how you finish. The RINGS Tournament pits all 15 fighters in a single elimination tournament of the RINGS cup. Exhibition matches can also be played against the computer or against another player. Two players can also take part in the RINGS Tournament and a Tutorial option has been included to teach players how to play.




Released on October 20, 1995 in Japan. The game was never exported outside Japan.

The final game in the Astral Bout series on the Super Famicom is once again a licensed product of Fighting Network Rings and as a result, features the licensed likeness of Akira Maeda, Mitsuya Nagai, Yoshihisa Yamamoto and Masayuki Naruse. The rest of the characters resemble the fighters that worked in the promotion, but were given fake names due to not being a part of the RINGS Japan team.
