The ART OF FIGHTING ANTHOLOGY is a collection of all three books in the ART OF FIGHTING series. These books are titled ART OF FIGHTING 1, ART OF FIGHTING 2, and ART OF FIGHTING 3.
These three games were instrumental in the development of the fighting game genre, and many of the game mechanics that were debuted in this series went on to become standards in subsequent fighting games. This encompasses elements such as taunts, introductions tailored to specific characters, and even Super Moves!
The Sakazaki family and their adventures in South Town are the primary focus of both ART OF FIGHTING 1 and ART OF FIGHTING 2, which have the respective goals of rescuing Yuri Sakazaki and bringing down the corrupt police commissioner Geese Howard. In ART OF FIGHTING 3, the story takes a different turn. Instead of focusing on the Sakazaki family, the story follows a family friend of the Sakazakis named Robert Garcia as he travels to Mexico in search of a childhood friend.
