Compared to its contempoaries, Final Fight CD was easily the most accurate home console port of the arcade game at the time, showing just what the CD format was capable of. It even features a new time attack mode, alongside the usual CD extras like an arranged redbook soundtrack, extended cutscenes and a hilarious English dub.

Regional Differences

Introduction

In the Japanese version, Jessica's appearance on the TV screen shows her wearing a bra, like in the original Japanese version of the arcade game. This was changed to a strapless dress for the international versions, which is actually more accurate to her in-game appearance. Her palette is also slightly different.

Thrasher/Damnd is shown laughing on the TV screen, with the lights behind him flickering. This animation was for some reason removed in the international version.

Profiles

In the Japanese version, the profiles are narrated and feature graphics unique to this port. The international versions feature no narration and simply reuse the bio graphics from the original arcade game.

Sprites

Unlike the SNES port, Poison and Roxy weren't replaced for the international version, though their clothes were changed to be less revealing.

In the Japanese version, Belger rides what looks to be an actual wheelchair. In the international versions, this was changed to look more like an office chair with wheels, presumably to make it not seem like you're beating up a disabled man.

The bar sign in the West Side stage was changed to a club sign.

The statue found throughout the Up Town stage had its breasts covered up.

The latter three changes had previously been made for the international version of the SNES port, though its redesigned graphics differ from these.

Ending

After Haggar hugs Jessica, the international versions cut to the credits. The Japanese version features an extra ending scene involving Cody and Guy.

Miscellaneous

  • The international version also retains the international SNES version's name censorship; Damnd and Sodom's names are changed to Thrasher and Katana, and the bonus game enemy says "Oh, my car" instead of "Oh, my god".
  • In the Japanese version, blood squirts when hitting an enemy with a weapon.
