No. The reason for this (and if you look, Sonic CD & R should have them as well. I don't have SGC yet to check) is because the games have been edited so they'll work on the GC/PS2 - they're ports.

Random example, Ocarina of Time & Master Quest that comes free with Wind Waker has 2 copyright dates, for the same reason (yes, I'm aware both are emulated) and iirc, a couple of the games on the 5 game Zelda bonus disc do too.

It's fairly obvious that the Gems version of Fighters is a port.
However, for some reason, all of the game values stored in memory on the GC version are stored as little endian, which is VERY strange for a Gamecube game, considering that the processor is big endian. I'm not sure what this suggests, since they did remove the unused stuff, but it's an interesting point nonetheless.

perhaps to save themselves the task of recreating assets, they wrote the game executable itself around the little endian order of the assets?

Must I be the one to say it? Very well, then:

ZOMG!!1!!!1!one! TialzxH0n3Y Yiffzorz plz! *bricked, shot, and then nuked*


Back on topic, maybe it was one of the VF team members poking fun at how StF came about.

I mean, there's been other characters made for that purpose. Hell, look at Dan and what SNK did with him in SvC: Chaos...

By that, I mean SNK gave him a parody of two more of Ryo's moves that Capcom never did.
