The game is known outside Japan as "Mega Man 2 - The Power Fighters". Here is the list of known export releases:

The music may seem familiar since the Japan-only Rockman Memories series uses the same music in some stages.
The game forbids the initials 'SEX' on the high score table. If you try, it gets changed to 'HKD'.
Victor Entertainment released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Rockman 2 - The Power Fighters : Capcom Game Soundtrack - VICL-2173) on September 21, 1996.
