Real Bout Fatal Fury Special, released in Japan as Real Bout Garou Densetsu Special (リアルバウト餓狼伝説スペシャル, Riaru Bauto Garō Densetsu Supesharu, "Real Bout Legend of the Hungry Wolf Special"), is a 1997 fighting game released by SNK for the Neo-Geo platform. It is the sixth installment in the Fatal Fury series and the second game in the Real Bout sub-series, following the original Real Bout Fatal Fury. This game features all new graphics and returns to an enhanced two-level plane system similar to Fatal Fury 2. A port for the PlayStation was made and re-titled Real Bout Garou Densetsu Special Dominated Mind.


A translation of the official story is as follows:

The tales of the legendary battle has been unfurled. Eyes met on both sides and fists clashed. Fate ironically took hold of the chaos and started another sublime development.

Even if there seems to be no requests for it...

Now, the experienced fighters can reflect on their fights and wounds. What recognition were they looking for with their strength?

Each of them are legends in their own right. No one wants to assume that this fight can change this fact. However, no fight is ever perfect. These fights alone could not satisfy them...

Wings spread to the sky... United to decide who is the superior, the martial artists gather to refine themselves in battle.

On the stage known as the Real Bout Fatal Fury Special.
