The game seamlessly blends fast-paced fighting based on the Dark Tournament Saga of the animated series with actual show footage to immerse fans and newcomers alike in the dramatic highlights of the Yu Yu Hakusho story.
“Yu Yu Hakusho has emerged as one of this country’s hottest anime properties” said Nancy MacIntyre, vice president of Marketing for Atari’s Beverly Studio. “Atari is again thrilled to partner with FUNimation Productions and developer Digital Fiction to deliver this next-generation original.”
