Publisher description for Karnov's Revenge for Neo Geo
Fighter's History was known for being a clone of other fighting games. Aside from the gimmick that an opponent can be dizzied if he or she is hit repeatedly in a specified spot, losing a prop in the process, its fighting engine and many elements of the game, such as sound effects and fighter backgrounds, were extremely similar to those of Street Fighter II. As such, Capcom sued Data East but lost the case in the end. Despite Data East successfully defending itself in the lawsuit, Fighter's History was not rid of its reputation of "Street Fighter rip-off" and went ignored by many gamers. Its sequels, which added little to the series, helped cement this reputation. Still, the game has a small cult following.
