Legend is a 3D fighting game released on the Sony PlayStation in 1998. It is a remake of the Super Nintendo game of the same name. It was developed by Toka, which included the same two key members who created the original Legend, Carlo Perconti and Lyes Belaidouni. The game was one of the first ever to utilise motion-capture techniques to create the animations of the characters. Unlike similar games that bring the beat-em-up genre into 3D, such as Fighting Force, Legend still retains the same view and left-to-right stage mechanics of the 2D beat-em-ups, instead of open 3D environments.

It was only released in Europe and Australia. An American version was planned to be released by THQ under the name "Knights of Carnage" but this never happened.
