I know of that too, I played the translation patch.
They actually changed the dialog enough to be a spoof. I don't think it's a bad game though.

Except it didn't. Or rather the Japanese original didn't. Only the American release was butchered.

Why western games or western localizations got more dated than japanese games?
Streets of Rage is early 90's as fuck and don't look like a complete joke. Rival Turf is pretty 90's too, but only the western cover looks ridiculous.

I would say that is because how japanese games are more stylized, but some of them are pretty realistic, like Streets of Rage, while there are plenty of stylized western games.

Those appear to be strings from his jacket, similar to what hoodies have. It doesn't look like a hoodie, so I guess they're there just for looks.
