Obscure arcade fighting game? [Solved]

Post by mameenthusiast » June 10th, 2012, 3:42 pm

I remember seeing this obscure arcade fighting game back in an arcade in a movie theater, but I can't remember for sure what the name of the arcade fighting game was. I do remember a few details though. From what I remember, one character was a lizard character that wielded a type of weapon, while the other character was a female character that was a brunette which wore a red outfit and wielded a dagger in each hand. It also had Killer Instinct style graphics, but I know for sure that it wasn't Killer Instinct. In the demo of the arcade game, it would view each character. If anyone could give me some clues, that would be great.

Sounds sorta like Soul Caliber? They have a lizard with a short sword and shield.
I was thinking KI at first, but you covered that.

Taki would fit the bill of brunette girl with red outfit and dual daggers. If that turns out to be the one though, then I have trouble thinking of SoulCalibur as an obscure game with Killer Instinct style graphics.

After doing some research, I discovered that it was Killer Instinct this whole time. Thank you all for your help though. :smile:

No worries. I was looking into some really obscure stuff like Blood Warrior and Vicious Circle.
