This game is known in Japan as "Rockman 2 - The Power Fighters [CP-S II No. 17]".

The game forbids the initials 'SEX' on the high score table. If you try, it gets changed to 'HKD'.

The music may seem familiar since the Japan-only Rockman Memories series uses the same music in some stages.

Victor Entertainment released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Rockman 2 - The Power Fighters : Capcom Game Soundtrack - VICL-2173) on 21/09/1996.


The US version is slightly different, it has the "Winners Don't Use Drugs" screen.
