Introduction

Fatal Fury Special is the updated version of Fatal Fury 2 for the Neo Geo MVS (Arcade), and Neo Geo AES (Home Console). Notable changes to the game include faster gameplay and a combo system. All characters from Fatal Fury 2 return, with bosses Billy Kane, Axel Hawk, Laurence Blood, and Wolfgang Krauser now playable. Duck King, Tung Fu Rue, and Geese Howard from the original Fatal Fury are also added to the roster, with Geese acting as a sub-boss to Krauser. Ryo Sakazaki, the main character from Art of Fighting, appears as a secret boss and is playable in the home versions of the game.
