Released on January 26, 1996 in Japan. The game was re-released by Hamster as part of their Major Wave Arcade Hits series on October 31, 2002 and then on the Playstation 3 as a PSOne Classic by MonkeyPaw Games on October 5, 2010.

Two of Mizoguchi's moves reference other games by Data East. One special move where he swings a green energy bat has him cosplay as a baseball player from the Stadium Hero series for a split second. His Desperation Move, where he launches and even transforms the opponent into pink sheeps, is a reference to Trio the Punch: Never Forget Me.

Mizoguchi, along with fellow Fighter's History Dynamite fighter Liu Yungmie, later appeared in the sequel to this game: Suiko Enbu Act II: Fuunsaiki


Start a game in 'Special Mode' and press Start to access the title screen. Press Up, Down, Left, Right, Down, Up, Right, Left, L2, R2. You will hear a voice by Mizoguchi, and you can now play as him in 2P Battle.

Hold L2 and R2 during the character select screen to display Beginner mode.

On the character select screen, highlight the character you wish to select and choose their outfit color with any button. Hold down the button and then hold any of the 8 directions to change the skin tone of your character.

To choose a bonus eighth color for your character, have your opponent select the character you wish to choose with LK, then press LK to select the character they selected (LP for Kousonshu, Start for Mizoguchi and Chougai). Your character will fight with a golden color scheme.

A character known as Huyan Zhuo in the novel will challenge the player before the final boss fight if they remain undefeated throughout the game at that point. He can only be defeated through special attacks, and if the timer reaches 20, he will unleash an attack that kills the player in a single hit.

In "Special Mode", characters have at least two Desperation Moves that can be performed when a character's lifebar is flashing depending on whether you have your weapon or not. Before listing them all, here's a quick legend:
