This game is known in Japan as "Wonder 3".

The main character of the action game (Midnight Wanderers) appears as a striker character (Lou) in "Marvel vs. Capcom - Clash of Super Heroes".

Pony Canyon / Scitron released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Captain Commando : G.S.M. Capcom 5 - PCCB-00083) on 21/03/1992.


The US versions have the "Winners Don't Use Drugs" screen.

"Wonder 3" (the Japanese version) has some differences :

  • The action game is called 'Roosters' instead 'Midnight Wanderers'.
  • Roosters is slightly harder in a few ways : the stage 1 mid-boss has a faster rate of fire, the stage 1 end-boss is more aggressive by shooting less and punching more and near the end of stage 2 where the water is deep some of the platforms will crumble away when you step on them.
