A console port of the original Activision MechWarrior 2: 31st Century Combat computer game, MechWarrior 2 - 31st Century Combat: Arcade Combat Edition is a Playstation game set in the BattleTech universe.


Computer games are explicitly excluded from the list of products that contribute straight Canon to the BattleTech universe while at the same time it was stated that the IP owners are "not in total denial about these sources either"; it has also been stated that fluff from certain official, licensed products (namely certain computer games including those produced by Activision) can be assumed to be part of the shared universe as long as it is not directly contradicted, and makes sense. On this premise, MechWarrior 2 - 31st Century Combat: Arcade Combat Edition is considered to be an apocryphal product.


The emphasis in the PlayStation version is shoot-em-up action
