The Real Bout Fatal Fury 2: The Newcomers wiki last edited by Nes on 07/28/15 06:06PM View full history


Real Bout Fatal Fury 2: The Newcomers (known in Japan as Real Bout Legend of the Hungry Wolf 2: The Newcomers) is a 2D fighting game developed and released by SNK for arcades (using the Neo Geo MVS hardware) and the Neo Geo AES on April 29, 1998.

The seventh installment of the Fatal Fury series, the game combines the sprite and character roster updates of Real Bout Fatal Fury Special with the gameplay engine of Real Bout Fatal Fury while adding two new characters: Chinese waitress Li Xiangfei and Native American boxer Rick Strowd. Geese Howard returns as a playable character, Alfred Airhawk (who would later become the protagonist of the PlayStation port of Real Bout Fatal Fury Special) is added as a secret boss, and the one-line hazard stages from Fatal Fury Special also return (which can be toggled before starting two-player matches). This would be the last installment of the series in the classic Fatal Fury style before getting reimagined in Garou: Mark of the Wolves.

The game was ported to the Neo Geo CD on July 23, 1998, was included in the Fatal Fury Battle Archives Volume 2 compilation for the PlayStation 2, and was digitally released on the Wii (via Wii Virtual Console) on September 27, 2012.
