Pit Fighter

Pit Fighter - Sega Mega DrivePit-Fighter is a 1990 arcade fighting game by Atari Games which used digitized live actors. The Japanese arcade release was published by Konami. Home versions were published by Tengen.

The graphical animations for the player character and opponents were created through a bluescreen process, where the various poses and moves were performed by real actors in front of a video camera. The game's on-screen character animation are replays of the actual footage, not a rotoscoped (redrawn) animation. Pit-Fighter is the second fighting game to use digitized sprites, after Home Data's Reikai Dōshi: Chinese Exorcist.
