Real Bout Garou Densetsu (c) 1995 SNK.

16 characters, some old and some new, breathe new life into the Fatal Fury series.


Runs on the SNK "Neo-Geo MVS" hardware.
Game ID: NGM-095

Players: 2
Control: 8-way joystick
Buttons: 4
=> [A] Punch [B] Kick [C] Power Attack [D] Move Between Planes


Real Bout Garou Densetsu was released on December 21, 1995 in Japan.

The title of the game translates from Japanese as 'Real Bout Hungry Wolf Legend'.

This game is known outside Japan as 'Real Bout Fatal Fury'.

Things that changed in this particular game :
* The game uses a different 4 button setup this time around (punch, kick, power attack & plane switch) This was done to make the plane change mechanics easier to master.
* Chain combos are easier to pull this time around as well.
* This is one of the very few 2-D fighters to feature ring outs!
* Newcomers in the game are : Kim Kaphwan, Duck King & Billy Kane.

Pony Canyon released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Real Bout Garou Densetsu - PCCB-00203) on 07/02/1996.


An additional cut-scene can be seen by beating the game with either Terry or Andy Bogard.
