Slam Dragon

Slam Dragon

A Japan-exclusive 2D fighting game for the PS1 by Jaleco that mixes generic martial arts fighting with rendering techniques similar to Killer Instinct.


Slam Dragon is a 2D fighting game developed and published by Jaleco for the Sony PlayStation exclusively in Japan on April 12, 1996.

The game features pre-rendered 3D graphics for character sprites and cutscenes and a 3D background that pans to give the illusion of 3D fighting, similar to the 1994 fighting game Killer Instinct.

The game was later digitally re-released for supporting PlayStation Network machines (via PSOne Classics) in Japan first on January 18, 2012 (published by HAMSTER) and later on October 1, 2015 (published by City Connection).
