Beastorizer

Raizing's 1997 title Beastorizer is a 3D fighting game. Later ported to consoles as Bloody Roar, the game distinguished itself with characters that can transform into animal / human hybrids once their "Beast Indicator" is activated. Activating Beast Mode grants players with a wider variety of special moves, health recovery, and higher jumping power.
