The game has 8 fighters... well, actually 7: some guy named Steven [wearing armor and without armor], Tyrone, Dozo, G.I. Jim, Helmut, Lita, and C.J., who serves as the final boss.
Another thing that takes away the replay value is that you can only use Steven in the 1 player mode. However, you can switch between the Armored and normal forms before a fight.
A fine young man... you're making me homophobic!
Yes, Dudley Moore sponsored the tournament!

A special commentary: This game was released originally in Japan under the name "Ranma 1/2." That's right, this was a Ranma 1/2 game! The gameplay is the same as the Japanese version, but the characters were altered to the point of not being themselves anymore.
Here's the lowdown: Steven [armored] is actually Ranma Saotome! Steven without armor is Ranma-Chan, Tyrone is Genma Saotome, Dozo is actually Kodachi Kunou [What the hell were they smoking; they made a female character into a male one!], G.I. Jim is Tatewaki Kunou, Helmut is Kouchou [The Principal], Lita is Shampoo [!] and C.J. is Ryouga Hibiki! Also, the music is completely different [thank God!], and the graphics are a lot better in that version. Who knows why they changed it.
They probably thought that being Ranma 1/2, it wouldn't appeal to the American public. Typical American views...
