While many American films inspire video games and other merchandise, this animated feature, like many from Japan, is based on the popular series of video games called Battle Arena Toshinden. Because the Toshinden video game is essentially a martial-arts fighting game in the tradition of Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat, the plot isn't much more than a vehicle for some spectacular fight sequences.
