This game was only released in Japan, I assume only because of the lawsuits in America, but has been sighted in the UK as well. One unique aspect of the game is the "picture" option which deforms the picture the more times the onscreen person has been punched. This game is not to be confused with the SNES side scroller "Sonic Blastman 2".

Cabinet Information

The cabinet is larger than Sonic Blast Man and has a camera on the top.
