Trivia

Cover art

The artwork of Akira on the cover isn't from the featured Virtua Fighter 2, but from the cover of Virtua Fighter 4: Evolution.

European version

The European version removes Shadow Dancer due to the game being indexed by the BPjS/BPjM in Germany during the early 1990's, which would make the compilation forbidden for sale to minors and the general public. Rather than making a separate version for Germans or requesting for the game to be deindexed (as Activision did in 2003 with River Raid for its inclusion on Activision Anthology), Sega instead removed the game entirely from the PAL version.
