fighter's megamix

Hey, Greeny! I found a few informative forum threads about the scrapped characters Fang and Bean that you will probably be interested in. The first is on SSMB and titled Bean Is NOT A Duck and the opening post on that thread links to two places on the Sonic Retro forums: Fang - Half Wolf, Half Jerboa and the other is Bean & Bark Fighters Megamix profiles. It turns out language barriers and translation issues have caused misconceptions about Fang and Beans' species. Pretty shocking isn't it?

Whoa! I never knew that!

Though Bean’s pecking attacks in Fighters make more sense now we know he’s a Woodpecker.

20 YEARS I COULDN’T SAVE

Sega Saturn version 2 was my first console that i got in 1997. 

This was only in production for 3 years from ‘95-’98 (’00 in Japan) in the USA and it flopped hard but I still had mine plus my 2 favorite games Daytona USA and Fighters Megamix. I’ve never saved any progress in either of these games. Last year I looked into it and you’re supposed to change the watch battery in the back and you should be able to save until the battery dies in a year or two.

I changed it and cool, it should work right? Still my fastest laps and unlocked fighting characters from my favorite games were deleted every time I turned the console off :( I almost was convinced I had to buy a memory card.

But then I saw this motherfucker

¡ ¡ ¡ ¡ ¡ A FUCKING CLOTH STRIP UNDER THE BATTERY!!!!!

FOR 20 YEARS I NEVER REMOVED THIS THING FROM THE CONSOLE’S PRODUCTION

Now I’m really happy that I can save my progress and finally unlock the car from Daytona USA, Hornet, as a playable character in Fighter’s Megamix ^.^

The remaining bonus artwork hidden on the Japanese release of Fighters Megamix. All of this art comes from the Graffiti seen on the walls in Honey / Candy background stage. Some of these look like they have a few hidden developer messages in them. The Pikudog one we wonder if it might be a swipe at Nintendo Pokemon?
