Fatal Fury Special


"The fury comes home"

"Packing the same brand of unrestricted one-on-one fighting that left you scabbed and broken in the arcade, Fatal Fury Special tosses you on the street with 15 of the World's greatest fighters - including every boss to ever rock a Fatal Fury screen.  And if these guys don't knock you senseless, more colours and larger animation surely will.  We've even brought the lightning-fast game up to speed - and the "well rested" Geese Howard.  So if it's mercy you're looking for - go back to cartridge games."

"Updated version of Fatal Fury Special boasts faster graphics, larger arcade-rendered animation, jacked up sounds and music; brand new combos and "special death" moves including Terry Bogard's rising knuckle and Joe Higashi's hurricane punch; each character has up to six different special moves, including counter-attcaks and "taunts"."

The second rarest official release out there after the grail that is The Adventures of Batman and Robin, the total number of known copies is still firmly in single figures - I know of three people, myself included, who have this one.

Limited experience suggests that it was released in mainland Europe if not the U.K. - Damian's originally came from Spain, mine seems to have started out in France and a third collector has one from Germany.

A one fight demo CD with limited character selection was given away with issue 46 of Sega Pro.
