Groove On Fight Overview

Groove On Fight: Gouketsuji Ichizoku 3 is the third entry in Atlus’ Power Instinct (Gouketsuji Ichizoku, 豪血寺一族) fighting game series. It was originally released just one month earlier in the arcades by Sega on their Sega Titan Video (ST-V) hardware and then ported to the Sega Saturn by Atlus.

In this game, players fight 2-on-2 and are able to swap characters in mid-battle, much like Capcom’s Vs series. When characters are defeated, their bodies remain in the arena and can even be used as a weapon! Wild.

Despite requiring a 1MB RAM cartridge (which it was sold with and without), the Saturn port features some drawbacks such as missing frames of animation, but it does have a number of additions. You can now play as Bristol-D, Bristol Weller, and Damian. It features an arranged version of the original soundtrack, along with new themes and a vocal version of the title theme. You can also play with up to four players with a multi-tap.

Beyond those, there is a huge Omake gallery available once you complete the game.

Groove On Fight was a 39-track soundtrack and sound collection published by Scitron / Pony Canyon (Catalog # PCCB-00263) on June 18th, 1997 for ¥ 1,529. Unlike the soundtrack above, the music in this album is based on the original arcade versions. As you can see, they both have Solis on the front cover, so take care if you are looking to buy.

Some phone cards were released by Atlus at some point, but I could not locate any real information on them.

A size B2 promo poster was released for the game.
