Could this be an alternate name for the PSX version of Heaven's Gate?

They released Heaven's Gate in Europe with the name intact, months after the American suicide cult incident? :D

Good info! I should have put the pieces together as Atlus hasn't made too many fighting games. The preview was written in 1996 prior to any of the Playstation ports being released so it's possible they wanted to change the name for American audiences because of the shared name with a cult.

"On December 13, 1996, it was ported to the Sony PlayStation in Japan by Atlus. In October 1997, JVC Digital Studios published it in Europe as Yusha: Heaven's Gate."

also, realise now I provided the wrong link. Here's the direct link to the preview circa October 1996
