On PlayStation Network, the games will release first in North America on November 27, followed on December 5 for PSN in Europe.

The games will remain largely identical to their arcade originals, with enhancements made to add online multiplayer as well as achievements and trophies for each game.

Virtua Fighter 2 made its debut in arcades in 1994, and was ported to the Sega Saturn the following year.

Sonic the Fighters came to arcades in 1996, and was later made available as part of the Sonic Gems Collection for the GameCube and PS2.

Fighting Vipers also first released in 1996 both in arcades and on Sega Saturn, and was notable for being the first fighting game to feature characters with destructible armour.

The games were announced for Japan earlier this year, though it was unclear if they would also be released outside of Japan. They were announced along with ports of Virtua On and Virtua Striker, which have not been confirmed for worldwide release at this time.

Sonic the Fighters, Virtua Fighter 2 and Fighting Vipers will be available on XBLA and PSN for 400 MS Points or £3.69 ($4.99) each.
