Guy was 'Gay' in the early days of Final Fight development, replaced Cody as the star in 'Final Fight Guy', and more trivia from Did You Know Gaming

Capcom's Final Fight series takes the spotlight in the latest episode of VGFacts's weekly YouTube video series Did You Know Gaming.


The Final Fight DYKG starts off fairly mild, covering the fairly well-known story behind Final Fight's development as well as the reasons that led to Poison's gender differences in the Japanese and International versions of Final Fight and Street Fighter games. But at some point the episode ramps up and shifts gears, taking us into lesser-known-trivia territory.

Did you know, for instance, that Guy's name was spelled as "Gay" at one point? Or that there's actually a version of Final Fight entitled "Final Fight Guy" where everyone's favourite sneakers-wearing modern-day ninja actually replaces Cody as the protagonist of the game?

What about Sodom being renamed as "Katana" in certain versions of Final Fight and Street Fighter Alpha 2?
