The Combatribes was released on December 23, 1992 in Japan for 9300 Yen.
It was first released in the arcades in 1990. Unlike the Super Famicom version, the original features large items (such as bikes and pinball machines) that can be picked up and thrown at enemies. Surprisingly, Berserk is called Berserker and the trio displays different stats. Another interesting feature from the original arcade game is the health counter displayed at the top of the screen - inserting more coins simply buys more health. This feature was replaced by a standard health bar in the Super Famicom version. Stages also have a different structure - for instance in the Clown area the boss fight happens at the top of a scaffolding tower and the club in the third stage features two floors. As a side note, a special cabinet was also available where three players could play at the same time.
