Final Romance 2 was the fifth and final mahjong game developed for the NEOGEO system.
It was also one of eight "exclusive" titles released solely for the CD format. The game
of Mahjong is very popular in Japan as well as several other parts of the world. However,
since some of the tiles used in the game have Chinese symbols, a minimum understanding of
the characters, coupled with a basic knowledge of how to play Mahjong itself, is required
for the game to be "playable" and thus enjoyable. This is also the case with the other 4
NEOGEO Mahjong games.
Many cartridges of Final Romance 2 exist today, but little is known regarding the history
and facts of who assembled the first rom set. It is also not as readily and easily found on
the internet. Only hard core NEOGEO cartridge collectors have gone through the trouble and
expense of adding this game to their library. One of my sources told me long ago that the
individuals who should be credited for it were "NewDump", "Kanyero", & "Kikexx". Thanks to
their conversion work, we are all able to play it on the cartridge system. And an improved
rom build was put together by "HP MAN".
