This game, released in November 1991, is known in Japan as Garou Densetsu: Shukumei no Tatakai (Legend of Hungry Wolf: Battle of Destiny). Originally called "Real Bout", SNK opted to change the title to "Fatal Fury". Acording to the USA flyer, the name of the game is "Fatal Fury: The Battle of Fury". On the ingame titlescreen, however, it's called "Fatal Fury: King of Fighters". The official name of the tournament is "The King of Fighters". This can be verified if you look closely the promo poster seen in the name rankings. Later SNK would use this name for a popular game series of its own.
The music in a 2-player battle is taken from the first stage of Street Smart. (arcade-history)
