  • This game was the first Midway release to use the DCS Sound System.
  • SFII / MK2: both games were supposed to be released within weeks of each other (at this time, SF and MK were the dominant fighting games). Capcom released SSF2 early so that they could attract fans away from MK. At the same time, Midway released MK2 early for similar reasons. As you can see, the result meant that both came back to square one.
