Three old Sega fighting games are reportedly coming to Xbox Live Arcade.

They are Sonic the Fighters, Fighting Vipers and Virtua Fighter 2, ratings for which were spotted by eagle-eyed XBLA sleuth Sacra.

Sonic the Fighters launched in Japanese arcades in May 1996 using mechanics based on the Virtua Fighting series. It was later released on GameCube and PlayStation 2 as part of the Sonic Gems Collection. Fighting Vipers launched in Japanese arcades a year earlier, in 1995, and was later released on the Sega Saturn, also using mechanics taken from the Virtua Fighting series. And, topping the trio off, Virtua Fighter 2, which launched in Japanese arcades in 1994 and a year later on the Sega Saturn.

While the ratings list the games for release on Xbox 360, we imagine they'll also launch on PC and PlayStation Network in keeping with Sega's recent digital re-release strategy.
