Released in 1995, this is the fourth title in the Fatal Fury series of
beat 'em up games. Previous releases in the Fatal Fury series utilized a
two-plane battle system allowing you to move and fight between the
foreground and background planes on-screen. This has been revamped from
previous Fatal Fury titles to a three-plane format (foreground,
background and main plane) known as the Oversway System. Characters will
automatically move back to the main line after a certain period of time
in the foreground or background planes. Other new features include
Combination Arts (the ability to execute combo attacks with simple
rhythmic button taps), Hidden Abilities (superior versions of the
popular Special Moves and Super Special Moves from previous
installments), and minor tweaks to all of the characters' Special Moves.
This combination of features gives this episode the deepest strategies
and tactics in the Fatal Fury series to date.
