DescriptionThe streets of Metro City are filled with criminals who are part of a gang called Mad Gear. Former wrestler and newly elected mayor Mike Haggar tries to do something about it, much to the displeasure of the Mad Gear Gang who kidnap his daughter Jessica. Only three people are brave enough to venture into the crime-infested streets and try to bring Jessica back.
Final Fight is a 2D side-scrolling fighting game. Taking on the role of either Cody, Guy, or the mayor Mike Haggar himself, you must advance through six areas of the city clearing out the gang infestation. You will have to cope with a variety of thugs, ranging from firebomb-throwing maniacs to behemoth wrestlers. To defeat these thugs, you have an arsenal of punches, kicks, throws, and jump kicks at your disposal.
SNES port offers only two playable characters: Cody and Haggar. It is also single player only. Later, Final Fight Guy was released in which Cody was replaced with Guy.

Version differencesIn contrast to the SNES version of Final Fight, the U.S. version of Final Fight CD had less differences to the original Japanese version: the girl punks were given slightly longer clothes, blood was taken out, Jessica wears her red dress in the intro (she was stripped to her underwear in the arcade and Japanese versions), DamnD's name was changed to Thrasher, Sodom's name was changed to Katana, the "SEXY" graffiti from the restroom stalls in one level was removed, and the references to beer and whisky were removed.
