Rockman 2 - The Power Fighters was released in July 1996 in the Japanese arcades. It was known as the 17th video game released for the CPS-II hardware.
The game is known outside Japan as "Mega Man 2 - The Power Fighters". Here is the list of known export releases:
"Mega Man 2 - The Power Fighters [Blue Board]"
"Mega Man 2 - The Power Fighters [Grey Board]"
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.
