About The Game
Return to the Great Grapple martial arts tournament in this fast-paced sequel to the well-loved Fighter's History.
This time, thirteen combatants have emerged to test their skills against the best of the best in a series of dramatic showdowns; among them, bosses Clown and Karnov from the original game return as playable characters. Use a wide range of secret attacks and a weak spot system that assigns a vulnerable area to each fighter, and if you fight well enough the bull from the bonus stage of the Data East classic Karate Champ will also make a special appearance!
