Game description: Kick your adrenaline into high gear as you defeat opponents with your brutal judo and kickboxing mastery. Sega's 3D fighting series evolves into a freight train of hardcore martial arts maneuvers featuring 15 competitors--some of whom can switch up their fighting style mid-fight. The new characters vying for a shot at winning the Worldwide Martial Arts Championship II Tournament are Goh, a trained assassin, and Brad, an Italian Muay Thai champion kickboxer. Once you make a name for yourself through a series of simulated arcade tournaments amid snow, rain, and sand, you'll qualify for the biggest fight of your career and show the world what you're really made of.
Evolution is an updated version of Virtua Fighter 4. The game introduces two new characters and adjusts every other character as well.
