Fatal Fury 3 - Road to the Final Victory (c) 1995 SNK.

During a trip to Southtown to attend the inauguration of a new branch of Pao Pao Cafe by former street fighter Richard Meyer, the lone wolves (Terry Bogard, Andy Bogard, Joe Higashi & Mai Shiranui) are unwillingly caught in the middle of a desperate search for the Shiranui Scrolls and the mysterious fighters that are after them! The game features a new graphic style, 2 different background planes to fight, a grade system that shows how well you perform in battle, lots of hidden moves & combos, as well as multiple endings based on your performance. The answers shall only be uncovered by a long & fierce battle, are you up to it?

Released in March 1995.

This game is known in Japan as "Garou Densetsu 3 - Harukanaru Tatakai" (translates from Japanese as 'Legend of Hungry Wolf 3 - The Distant Battle').

Things that changed in this particular game :

* The game introduces a deeper plane change system which proved to be somewhat clunky & difficult to use due to the tricky commands used to move between planes.

* Chain combos are introduced to add even more depth to each character's fighting style.

* Throws are harder to use since these are slow and throw-miss animations were added.

* Newcomers in the game are Bob Wilson, Blue Mary, Franco Bash, Hon Fu, Sokaku Mochizuki, Ryuji Yamazaki, Jin Chonshu & Jin Chonrei.

Hon Fu's goofy martial artist routine & easygoing personality make him SNK's hilarious homage to Jackie Chan. Definitely not a Bruce Lee clone! :)

Kyo Kusanagi & Sie Kensou make a cameo in Pao Pao Cafe!

The Japanese version of this game, Garou Densetsu 3, overtly refers to itself by its overseas name of "Fatal Fury 3" throughout the game.

Pony Canyon released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Garou Densetsu 3 - PCCB-00179) on 21/04/1995.


Reach and beat Jin Chonshu with a fighting grade above "A" and you'll fight a hidden last boss, her brother, Jin Chonrei.

One of the coolest things of this game is the fact that you can alter some backgrounds objects by slamming opponents against them. For example, you can knock away the training dummy in Joe's stage if you send an opponent flying towards it. Experiment on various stages to find more surprises!

Note : If the game is set on the USA, ASIA or EUROPE bios, the game will reset after defeating Jin Chonrei and you won't get to see the ending, however if the game is set on the JAPAN bios it will work just fine!
