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.


* Fight against Alfred : Begin game play in single player mode, finish off the first 10 fights with no Losses, score over 750000 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 :).
