Topic: Name of old arcade game machine!

Hey everyone i need help naming an old arcade game machine that i used to play alot while i was in Japan when in was 10 years old in the early 1990's. I only seen it as a arcade machine though.

Heres some game it's similar to Final Fight, Streets of Rage and Double Dragon. Its a 2d scrolling screen game and can be played with two players.

Here are some things i remember.

You can shoot a gun when you kill one of the enemies.
There are enemies that are dressed as sterotype homosexuals with the leather and chains and hat that can hurt you by humping you. I AM NOT KIDDING about this part. That is actually in the game.
Now in each stage theres a final boss as usual and most of them is knockoffs of horror movie icons like Jason, Freddy Kruger, Leatherface and many other horror icons. This is what i remember mostly about the game and was one of the most played games when i hang out in the game room area in Japan. I've never seen it since anywhere since i moved to the US when i was 12 years old.
I have a feeling maybe it was banned or taken downed because of similar horror icons they used and end up getting sued or something. But till this day i still cant remember the name to this game and wonder if anyone else played this or know the name. And also if anyone know what ever happened to it.

Thanks everyone.

Yeah!! I remember the US version of this game too, I thought it was pretty cool the couple times I played it. I think it ended up getting replaced with a Simpsons based fighting game, which was out-freakin-standing!
