Trivia

Released in March 1998.

This game is known in Japan as "Real Bout Garou Densetsu 2 - The Newcomers" (translates from Japanese as 'Real Bout Hungry Wolf Legend 2 - The Newcomers').

Things that changed in this particular game :

  • The game now features 'single plane' stages (like the ones seen in "Fatal Fury - King of Fighters", "Fatal Fury 2" & "Fatal Fury Special") in which you can slam enemies against background objects!
  • The breakable objects system seen in Real Bout Special is gone. Also the "evil character" versions of some characters are gone as well.
  • Newcomers in this game are : Li Xiangfei, Rick Strowd & Alfred.

A serious bug : Using a USA BIOS ROM if you insert a coin on the 'winners don't use drugs' screen on a single slot the games will use the NeoGeo BIOS s1 tile-set rather than the game tiles, this causes most of the graphics to be hidden and the games to be unplayable, it will also end up using the main-board Z80 BIOS so sound will be broken, the games should fix themselves if you let them run another attract loop after game-over, on a multi-slot the games will reset. This is one of the first 4 'GigaPower' games, the bug was fixed after that.

Tips and tricks

Fight Against Alfred

Begin game play in single player mode, finish off the first 10 fights with no Losses, score over 750,000 by the time the 10th fight is won, land 5 Super Dead Move's or 7 Dead Move's. You will fight Alfred in a desert type stage.

  • You may scope out each character's best records by tapping A button to move forward or B button to move back at the score ranking screen :).
