Spikeout: Digital Battle Online is a 3D beat 'em up video game developed by Toshihiro Nagoshi, and released by Sega for their Model 3 Step 2.1 arcade system board in 1998.[1] An update, Spikeout: Final Edition, was released in 1999.

A followup, Slashout, which was a slash em' up set in a medieval fantasy setting, was developed and released in 2000, also for arcades. A spinoff, Spikers Battle, adding a versus fighting element, was developed and released in 2001, again for arcades. Another followup, Spikeout: Battle Street, was developed by Dimps and released exclusively for the Xbox in 2005.

The SpikeOut games bear a resemblance to Sega's earlier Streets of Rage series.[2]
