...absolutely no idea where the Japan came from. This game was released as Spartan X in Japan, and what's more bizarre is that the datfile acknowledges this and has Spartan X as a clone for Kung Fu at the same time it lists this as being in Japan. Obviously the Japan region should be removed from this, because this was never released as Kung Fu in Japan and is not identical to the Japanese version.

I'll leave this one to DAT maintainer. I think this should be probably better tagged as (Asia, USA), as long as non-USA carts had their own serial. Otherwise simply (USA).

Kung Fu was released in Japan. (besides Spartan X)
It was released only for a little period for a temporary copyright problem.
It has been confirmed that it is same CRC with a Japanese.
