Fatal Fury Special (c) 1993 SNK.

Just as the name implies, this is a special edition of "Fatal Fury 2" filled with plenty of fun stuff. Features a few old familiar faces from the first game as newcomers; background with 2 battle planes; improved control and lots of secrets. Without a doubt, one of the better chapters in the series! :)

Released in September 1993.

This game is known in Japan as "Garou Densetsu Special" (translates from Japanese as 'Legend of Hungry Wolf Special').

Things that changed in this particular game :

* The combo system has been improved, hit damage has been lessened & the game speed has been increased.

* Newcomers in the game are Duck King, Tung Fu Rue, Geese Howard & Ryo Sakazaki.

Is Kim Kaphwan trying to replace Superman? You'll see for yourself when you spot him flying in Big Bear's & Terry Bogard's stages! :)

Pony Canyon released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Garou Densetsu Special - PCCB-00138) on 21/10/1993.


MVS (arcade) vs. Home (neo-geo) differences :

- Home : After the credits you will see all the characters grouped together and it will say to try a harder difficulty. If you beat it in the hardest difficulty it will say 'Perfect! It's a knockout, Superman!'.

- Home : If playing on the hardest difficulty and you fought Ryo Sakazaki, you will see all the characters moving around him in a circle while he, for some reason, is crying.


* Fight against Ryo Sakazaki : Beat the game without losing a single round (you can lose continues, but not rounds). You'll face against "Art of Fighting"'s main character Ryo Sakazaki as a powerful extra end boss!

* Beat the game without using a single continue and after the credits you will see every character performing a special move, their portraits and giving a quote.
