After the battles in Toshinden tournaments, the Secret Society was destroyed, but underground competitions played a role and when the fighters return to everyday life, many enemies will meet them on their way. This is the main content of the Battle Arena Toshinden 3. The original was, in fact, the first game with a truly 3D graphics, and its loud success greatly contributed to the popularity of the PlayStation platform. In the Battle Arena Toshinden 2, new characters appeared, but the changes were cosmetic. But the Battle Arena Toshinden 3 has revolutionized! Now in the game 30 (!) Characters, a completely new story, new arenas, brilliant polygonal graphics, organic and realistic animation, a huge set of special techniques and a gambling battle storyline.


  • When you strike or get damaged, your Overdrive Meter "rises" a little bit up (you'll see it just above Life Meter). When it glows, you can safely perform Special Move. Combinations and tricks seem to only increase the speed of the Overdrive.
  • Each fighter at the beginning of the match has two stones (Gem), and therefore can perform two Super Move. They can be performed from the ground or in the air (of course, with different effects).
  • The skirmishes are built in such a way that they focus more on tricky tricks and tricks (Juggling) than on traditional attacks and counter-attacks. There are receptions, allowing you to defeat an attacking opponent, even if you have received a serious "wound".
  • When the Life meter flashes red, you are ready to perform despair attack. It's just amazing what terrible damage can be done enemy. So do not despair if you are wounded.
  • For some (unknown to us) reasons for Kayin receptions are somewhat different from the techniques of other characters.

Sub Bosses
