Fun Facts
Lost to the Sands of Time
Sega of America had plans to release a third Eternal Champions game, Eternal Champions: The Final Chapter, on the Saturn. It was nixed because Sega of Japan felt that it would steal popularity from its upcoming Virtua Fighter in the states.
Not enough room for everyone
According to Michael Latham (EP and designer of the Eternal Champions series), the character Dawson from Eternal Champions: Challenge From the Dark Side, was originally planned to appear in the first EC, but didn't make the first cut. Chin Wo and Blast, secret characters from Challenge From the Dark Side, were also planned for the original game as well. These characters were scrapped due to memory limitations.
