Even if the titlescreen of the game show a 1988 copyright, Bloody Wolf was released to the public in February 1989.

Bloody Wolf was licensed to Romstar, INC for US distribution and in fact, went through all the name changes during the testing cycle before release.

This game is known outside US as "Battle Rangers" and in Japan as "Narazumo Sentou Butai - Bloody Wolf" (translates from Japanese as 'Ruffian Combat Force - Bloody Wolf').


The USA and European versions each have different dialogues. The European version has dialogue before each boss fight and the endings are different.
