The games are rather obscure, so there is not likely to be a sequel any time soon. Despite that though Capcom doesn't seem to have forgotten about it though as characters can be seen in the CapcomVSWhatever games (namely ''[[VideoGame/CapcomVsSNK2MarkOfTheMillennium Capcom vs. SNK 2]]'', ''VideoGame/NamcoXCapcom'', ''VideoGame/TatsunokoVsCapcom'' and ''VideoGame/ProjectXZone''). However, in 2012, the [=PlayStation=] version of ''United By Fate'' [[http://andriasang.com/con02g/rival_schools_psn/ was re-released as part of Sony's PSN Classics]] program in Japan and then in 2016 a couple of characters cameoed in ''VideoGame/StreetFighterV'', leaving hope that the series might not be finished just yet...

* {{Crossover}}: There are numerous references to ''Street Fighter'' in ''Rival Schools'', most notably Sakura's inclusion in the first game. However there are also a few inconsistencies (like Sakura's blood type) that prevents ''Rival Schools'' from fitting neatly into the ''Street Fighter'' continuity.

Nevertheless Hinata and Tiffany would appear in the background of a stage in ''Street Fighter V'', confirming that they both exist in a {{Shared Universe}}.

The Japanese version again had a character creation mode, this time in the form of the digitized board games (in the vein of VideoGame/MarioParty) that were all the rage at the time.

The first game, ''Rival Schools: United By Fate'', was released in arcades in 1997 and for the Sony UsefulNotes/PlayStation the following year. Students from all around Japan have mysteriously been disappearing, and teams of students from various high schools wind up fighting to figure out the person(s) behind it all. Players formed teams of two (which could be switched between rounds), and could call their partners in to assist them with an extra hit or energy boost (a feature borrowed from VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom that would also later make its way into a few of ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'' games). The [=PlayStation=] port added many {{Mini Game}}s alongside the main fighting game, as well as a character creation mode based off of DatingSim games. The latter, however, [[NoExportForYou never made it outside Japan]] thanks to how much of an undertaking it would be to translate to other languages, but all the other home version extras made it. [[NoExportForYou In Japan]], the game later got re-released with two new characters, as well as a revamped character creation mode.

It was later followed by a sequel on the Dreamcast, ''Project Justice'', which introduced new characters, expanded the team size to three, and brought on even more school fighting mayhem.

* {{Shotoclone}}: The Taiyou trio (especially Hinata, moveset-wise) and Hideo, with Hideo being the most blatant. Also, Sakura from ''Street Fighter'' in the first game.

Added DiffLines:

** In fact, Pacific High seems to be made up of them, since all the premade characters from there also fit the category.

* GameplayAndStorySegregation: The Nekketsu Seishun Nikki (Hot-Blooded Youth Diary) mode in the first game (as well as the UpdatedRerelease), being a straight-up school life simulator, makes little to no reference to the war between high schools. You can choose to befriend any of the characters in that mode, and the game may even offer options to pursue friendly relationships with the {{Big Bad}}s of the game, Raizo and Hyo.
