Trivia

References to the game

The game is shown briefly on the Channel 4 comedy, Father Ted. The game is shown being played by Father Dougal McGuire and Father Damian, although Dougal is clearly using an Atari joystick controller, as Father Ted enters the room. The clip can be found here.

SNES version

In the SNES version, blood was removed during the fights and from the fighter's portraits after fights. Additionally some pre-match sayings (Ryu, Balrog and Guile) and ending sequences (Chun-Li, Balrog, Ryu, Vega and Zangief) were changed. A detailed list of changes can be found on schnitberichte.com (German).
