World Heroes Perfect was released in May 1995. The game was feveloped by ADK. ADK's name is 'Alpha Denshi Kikaku'.

Son Gokuu is based on the famous mythological character known as Sun Wukong from "Journey to the West".

Since World Heroes Perfect, ADK games has gone out of business and all intellectual properties and copyrights to the games and characters have passed to SNK Playmore. Hanzo, Fuuma, Mudman and Neo-Dio would then appear in the fighting game "NeoGeo Battle Coliseum" (along with Kisarah from Aggressors of Dark Kombat, also by ADK) as a result.

In the Japanese version of the game, there is Japanese text underneath each players life bar during a fight displaying the player's taunts, yells and screams during a fight in text form. Combo information is also shown there when you do a combo. This feature is removed from non-Japanese versions of the game. This also occurred in World Heroes 2 Jet.
