Xena: Warrior Princess: The Talisman of Fate is a fighting video game that was released on the Nintendo 64, developed by Saffire and published by Titus Software, based on the television series.[1][2]

Characters[edit]

Gameplay[edit]

Graphics and Gameplay

The player chooses from the cast of characters and then, in a random order, fights the other characters (including the player's character). Xena will usually appear as the sub-boss. The final boss is Despair, a character original to the game, who is Dahak's champion. After defeating Despair, the player's character's individual ending will take place, with varying dialogue depending on the difficulty selected.

The game also has a roster mode, where the player selects a team of up to five characters and enters a free-for-all against other teams.

Each character has their own special moves (such as Xena's chakram and Callisto's fire blast), and is able to perform weapon combos, after which Xena may shout either "wow" or "excellent", or the crowd may boo.

Trivia[edit]

When Gabrielle and Xena fight, Gabrielle's name is changed to Hope, seemingly out of respect for Xena and Gabrielle's relationship, although there is a code to override this.

The crowd will always boo when Caesar is defeated.
