A handy thing about this 6-player version is a longer screen ratio. This is handy for the fact that there is more physical screen space for the play-field, making some fights easier, since you are not trying to see enemies off-screen so often, and allowing Konami to do the correct feel for the cut-scenes, since they didn't have to 'chop' the sides off the animated parts.
Due to certain issues, both the 2-player and 4-player cabinets, a rare occurrence, had character selecting, while this 6-player cabinet forced the selections.
