Psychic Force (サイキックフォース) is an arcade game created by Taito which was later ported to the PlayStation (this version of which was released by Acclaim in the U.S., and in PAL regions) in 1996. The game was a 3D fighter which combined the normal features of an arcade fighting game with psychic powers. There were eight characters available to choose from in the game, all deemed as 'psychic masters'. The game was released without much hype and failed to sell many copies. In 1999 a sequel was released titled Psychic Force 2012 also for the arcade, and later for the Sega Dreamcast. This game was later ported to the PlayStation as Psychic Force 2, featuring downgraded graphics but multiple extra modes and the three characters from Psychic Force that didn't make the cut into the sequel (This sequel would be ported to the Dreamcast later under the title Psychic Force 2012). There was also a Puzzle Bobble style puzzle game released that was known as Psychic Force Puzzle Taisen, this game was never released outside of Japan however. In 2006 in Japan, all three games were released together as an anniversary pack for the PlayStation 2.
