    Never seen the bottom section of that intro screen artwork before. Fascinating! Cool to see a clean/textless version of both though. I’d pick a cropped version of the Bare Knuckle one as the best, just to be awkward!

    Never noticed the guy in the sewer before how strange, love both hard to decide!

    I like the Bare Knuckle one myself, mostly for the city skyline and the various character illustrations at the bottom. I always found it strange that the artwork was changed for the West, as the original isn’t typically Japanese unlike a lot of other games from the era.
